Testimonials

“Thank you from all of us for a magnificent wedding ceremony. You were epic and we loved every minute. Much love.”

“From the bottom of our hearts…Thank you so much for making our wedding so memorable. You wrote a beautiful ceremony for us and every moment of it was from your heart. All of our guests are talking about how moving our ceremony was and how informative, clear and wonderful our Rabbi is!”

“Thank you so much for doing a beautiful job at our ceremony! Edgar’s family really appreciated the Spanish and his mom felt honoured to be involved. I especially wanted to thank you for your kind words about Edgar’s dad. We certainly lucked out having Alex as well! We really appreciate your dedication to making our ceremony meaningful and special. It was truly an honour to have you officiate at our wedding.” Susan

“Having born witness to many religious and spiritual wedding ceremonies, my husband and I were completely entranced by the uniqueness that Rabbi Gellman instilled within our own nuptials (and no, we’re not just saying that because it was our own). Blending elements of both tradition and history while simultaneously incorporating the progressive components that define today’s modern marriage, the language and lore that he lent to our service touched the hearts of all of our friends and family, and not least of which, us! He understood the importance of engaging our parents (even though it may have required a little extra convincing at first) which proved to be one of the aspects of the ceremony and one that we enjoyed the most.

Aside from the effort and research that he put into learning more about us, he was truly authentic in his delivery and analysis of our relationship and personalities. There was never a moment that felt contrived or scripted, and unlike other events that you just have to “get through” before you get to the more fun part, the ceremony is actually what we look back and reflect the most fondly on. We could not recommend enough getting to know him from either a personal improvement or ceremonial capacity!”

“Thank you for the anniversary wishes !!!  And thank you for marrying us. We are forever connected !!”

“Our 25th wedding anniversary was coming up, and Scott asked Rabbi Gellman if he would help us renew our vows.  Both Alex and Rabbi Gellman not only went above and beyond what we could have expected, but made an incredible ceremony involving all of our children, and many fellow cruisers. It was a magical evening that we will never forget, and talk about to everyone to this day.”

“The feedback from Mark and Lindsay’s wedding has been over the top. Your service was inclusive, spiritual, meaningful, and yet light and fun. I am very appreciative of the way you connected with the bride and groom and made all of the bridal party and guests feel we were part of something extraordinary. Thank you, thank you!”

“I’ve known Rabbi David for over 25 years. He’s been a true friend through thick and thin. He officiated at my wedding in 2016. He sat down with Valerie and I in advance of the day for a relaxed, wide-ranging discussion regarding our wishes as to what he might say and his thoughts on how he’d structure the ceremony. He’d never met Valerie before but instantly put her at ease and the three of us talked about life, our beliefs, and how we saw ourselves individually and together (I know that sounds a bit heady so let me add that we also talked about cake!). David wanted a deep understanding of who we were so that he could express this clearly to our guests. On the day, we were moved by his words. He had taken what we had said and woven the most beautiful text. Our guests still talk about it. Valerie and I will never forget the thoughtfulness and love that David graced us with.”

“It was truly the nicest ceremony I have ever seen, I couldn’t have dreamed of anything better! The details put into each and every aspect were so beautiful, and our wedding day would not have been as special as it was if it weren’t for Rabbi David.”

“My new step Mother-In-Law cannot get over how much she has learned about Judaism! Thank you for your patience and humour.”

“It was the most beautiful and moving service I have experienced in many years. I was deeply moved.”

“It was wonderful…a simple yet very personal and joyous moment…the two of you made it feel so special…thank you so very much.”

“How you connected with both of our families was so special. The time you took to consult with everyone was …”
