We had a magical wedding / elopement day, thanks in large part to #TeamReinking (Jackie our officiant, and Sascha our photographer). In lieu of a traditional wedding, we knew that the ceremony was going to be important in making our big day feel “official” and special. Jackie delivered above and beyond our expectations. Here is why: [ Her way with words ] : Jackie took our feedback and customized a ceremony draft that was genuine and moving. It really set the tone for our big day. She paid attention to small details we shared and incorporated them beautifully into the ceremony. We had the day recorded by videographers—after watching a sneak peek video of the ceremony, friends and relatives got curious who our officiant was because they were touched by Jackie’s words. [ Easy communication ] : We only communicated by email during the planning phase, but we felt at ease the whole time because of Jackie’s responsiveness. [ Warm and sincere ] : Jackie has such a warm personality. We felt her love and support, and her presence made our wedding so much more special. She officiated our ceremony on the windy waterfront of Brooklyn Bridge Park on a frigid snow day—without skipping a beat! Thank you Jackie for celebrating one of the biggest days of our lives in a way that is so genuine and caring. We are forever #TeamReinking.

I'm registered in the state of New York. I'll travel to any location within Manhattan and the surrounding areas as part of my services. In addition, I'd love to talk to any couple that would like me to travel to another location to perform their ceremony and the additional costs that might be associated with a destination location.


There is no wedding or elopement too small or intimate for my services. I give the same attention and importance whether it's the Bride and Groom or they have invited their closest family and friends of 500.

Describe your business in 1-3 short sentences.

What if the person who married you, on your most memorable day, in the best city in the world was a mix of your best friend or sister, a shoulder to lean on, a kick-ass professional,  and on top of that…hilarious? Wouldn’t that be ‘off the hook’ amazing?!

As a registered NYC Officiant, I perform Civil, Religious, Spiritual, Same Sex or Interfaith Ceremonies, Elopements, Unity Ceremonies or Renewal of Vows. My honorarium includes a personalized coordination of your ceremony; unlimited correspondence via phone and email; general counsel of obtaining your license; advisement on standard vows versus customized vows; performance of your ceremony; and accurate and timely filing of your marriage license.



Why do you want to work with APW Couples?

I love marrying people because it’s the most real, genuine and authentically wonderful moment a couple can share together. I am married to my best friend and I still joyously remember the memory, the moment, the second of my “I do” to this day.

Describe your artistic approach to weddings?

Hi, I’m Jackie and I am the officiant you hoped to make your ceremony perfect. Let me start by saying, congratulations! What an exciting time it is for you to be planning your wedding in NYC.

I promise as your officiant to help you laugh away the nerves. I will give you comfort when you are scared. I will shed a tear with you when you are happy –or more likely a few. And, for the rest of your life you will love the day we all create together  so you and your love will remember this moment forever.


What are your non-work-related hobbies?

Other things that make me super happy...

My little family - my husband Sascha, my daughter Lucy and our puggle Dexter. 





What’s your favorite movie?

I'm a sucker for Steele Magnolia or National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. 

If you could have a one minute dance party at your desk, what song would you pick?

Eye of the Tiger...
