What inspired you to become a wedding officiant?
I was asked by dear friends of mine to marry them many years ago, and fell in love with the process. I have never looked back since and love to treat my couples just as good as my very own good friends.
Can you describe your approach to working with each wedding couple?
After establishing a connection through email and phone consultation, we would discuss the order of the ceremony, what you would want included and even assist with vows if you decide to write your own for your ceremony. I approach each and every couple with care and attention to detail as well as honor and respect wishes of all denominations.
What do you enjoy about officiating weddings in Central Park?
The open air, the energy and spontaneity of the moment and the ability to have Central Park as the beautiful backdrop in the capital of the world is like no other. Each ceremony is characterized based on location and it takes its own form, which keeps Central Park Weddings so exciting to do.
Tell me about some of your most memorable weddings in Central Park or NYC!
After officiating in Central Park for several years, it never gets old. I always discover new portions of the park to perform ceremonies. Secluded nooks, lakeside landings, tops of hills and amazing spots adjacent to trails, all accessible to convenient entrances. There is always something new to discover and find, and that is the joy of Central Park Weddings. Each ceremony is its own story, it’s own chapter and it allows the wedding to take its own shape based on the couple and the location.

“Alex was an outstanding officiant from the word ‘Go” – He responded quickly, was easy to work with, and delivered a touching ceremony. He is well-spoken, warm, and professional. We had planned a large event that was cancelled due to Covid, but he ensured that our smaller, more casual event felt just as much as a ‘real’ wedding. Thank you Alex! highly recommended.”
