Joe officiated our wedding ceremony this past October and he was excellent! We are still receiving compliments on how wonderful the ceremony was. Joe helped us customize our ceremony and it was perfect. Thank you, Joe!

I highly recommend Journeys of the Heart for anyone getting married. My fiancé and I were looking to get married and have the ceremony and the reception at the same place. So my sister told me about an organization called Journeys of the Heart. We met with Joe and he asked questions about us and what we wanted our ceremony to consist of. We knew we didn’t want a traditional ceremony but still wanted to incorporate religion. Fortunately, Joe understood what we needed and was able include my daughters into the ceremony as well. Joe was compassionate and made our ceremony so special for us. I would recommend Joe for any type of wedding ceremony.   #loveJourneysoftheHeart

We loved our wedding ceremony officiated by Joe Silberstein. Our ceremony was large and complex with all of our grandparents, sisters, brothers, nieces and nephews walking down the aisle, our own tree planting ceremony (that he helped us write), our 13 year old cellist, a Jewish ketubah and multiple readings by our guests.  Add that it was an interfaith wedding with conservatively religious families on both sides.

Joe was extremely accommodating and creative and able to turn the complexity into a wonderfully spiritual and creative ceremony. He customized the ceremony to fit us perfectly.  He met with us in person and by phone a few times before the wedding.  He was great at collaborating with us over email.  He interviewed us separately about our relationship, values and dreams and then presented a very personal (and funny at times) story for our guests.

His Blessing of the Hands and Blessing of the Rings and final Pronouncement of Marriage were very special.  Joe made sure we took moments away from the chaos to reflect on the deeper meaning of the day.

He did an excellent job setting the expectations of the guests up front as far as their involvement and what the ceremony would entail since there were both Jewish and Catholic parts of the wedding that were unfamiliar to  people of the other faith.

A few years later, our guests still comment about how memorable, spiritual and unique our wedding was.  I highly recommend Joe for your ceremony.
