2015 award

Dear Reverend Shobha, Thank you so much for our wonderful wedding ceremony. We had a good feeling from the moment we met you and those feelings were confirmed with all that has happened since then. Everyone involved in the wedding has complimented us on what a beautiful ceremony it was and the wonderful experience they had that day. We also managed to have a good time despite the last minute planning and hectic schedule. I don’t know what we would have done without you. Robert and I really feel that your ceremony has helped us to realize that marriage is a spiritual experience and we believe that this experience will continue in the coming years. Thank you so much and we love you.

My wife and I were so happy with ceremony performed by Rev. Shobha. She made our day special. The ceremony could not have been more perfect. Many of our guests commented to me on how lovely and beautiful they thought the presentation was, and I agree. Rev Shobha is a true professional. For the month and days leading up to the wedding we were in constant contact by phone and e-mail. She asked all the right questions and provided the layout of the ceremony to us in an easy to follow manner. We cannot thank her enough for the wonderful job she did.

Having Shobba as our wedding offciant was a unique experience. She performed a beautiful ceremony that lasted about half an hour. She really did it speaking from her heart. What amazed me was the time she took before the date of the wedding to get to know the couple's relationship, family and values. My husband, the guests and I enjoyed every minute of this the ceremony.

Reverend Shobha is a professional. She is one of the few officiants who brings her own sound system. We had over 200 guests and they all heard the ceremony

We just returned from our honeymoon and I wanted to thank you again for our beautiful wedding day. We loved the ceremony you wrote for us. It was so beautiful that I would recommend your services without hesitation. Our family was very moved by the ceremony. We have very fond memories of you and our wedding day. Thanks again

We are a mature couple and would highly recommend Shobha to be your wedding officiant. If you want someone who takes a personal interest in you as individuals and as a couple, Shobha is the one for you. In our phone calls and e-mail exchanges, she was warm, kind, and listened to our concerns - even if they seemed trifling or silly. She radiates "calm." Shobha also understood the anxieties we were going through planning the wedding and taking the next step towards being a married couple. Even our families were touched by the intimate ceremony she performed. We couldn't have been more delighted with our Saturday afternoon wedding.

We had never met Reverend Shobha before, but she tailored the ceremony to our lives and made it very personal. She asked us a lot of questions to determine what we would like at this very special time in our lives, and tailored the ceremony to fit our individual tastes! She even included our children in the ceremony, which was very important to us. She not just conducted a wedding ceremony-but enhanced our experience through her personalization of our family! It was important to us that this be a family experience, and she did a great job with the whole experience. We were very appreciative of the extra steps that she took-including providing an opportunity for us to have photographs taken. Coming from Texas and not knowing anyone, or anybody, Reverend Shobha helped make this experience one that we will never forget! We have even had the opportunity to provide her name as a reference to friends also getting married in New York! Thank you for everything Reverend Shobha!

Shobha was a delight and we will always remember the wonderful time (and fun) we had. Everything went without a hitch.

Dear Shobha, We thought you did a fantastic job of conducting our wedding ceremony. It was exactly what we were looking for, both pace and material. Thanks again for all that you have done and your blessings.

Thank you so much for the time, thoughtfullness and sensitivity that you brought to our ceremony. It genuinely could not have been as special a day as it was without you. As we retell the story to friends and family it sinks in how much you were able to gauge who we were on that day and how best to celebrate it. Thank you so much again.

– Linda & Gary, Brooklyn, NY
