Cantor Irene Failenbogen
She is amazing!
We had to bridge two different cultures, religions, and nationalities. Miss Irene far exceeded anything that we could have hoped for. She helped us Zoom our wedding to our families out of state . Even when the dogs got into the ceremony by accident, she just took it in stride. The bilingual service was very attentive, meaningful, and on point. The reading from Victor Hugo completely exemplified the way my husband and I feel about each other. We had several conversations along the way so we both knew what was going on during the pandemic. She offered to do our wedding by Zoom if she could not be there in person. Our family was thrilled and electrified by her ceremony, knowledge, compassion, and graciousness. My only regret is we can only give her 5 stars because she clearly deserves the sky full of stars! Thank you Miss Irene for this wonderful service and a life long blessing!

Over the Moon with Cantor Irene!
We were over the moon with our wedding in 2016, and we can’t say enough about the perfect interfaith service that Cantor Irene created for us! Irene brings such a personal touch to her professional services that we felt as if we were being married by a good friend. She made our wedding both meaningful, with traditional prayers and rituals, and entertaining. Irene’s musical skills were the highlight of our ceremony, as she played the guitar and sang in her angelic operatic voice. We felt so lucky to have found an officiant who made a beautiful and artistic celebration for us that we will always cherish!
She was wonderful to work with, has a beautiful voice and conducted a memorable and meaningful wedding ceremony!

Rev. Vicky L. Eastland
Perhaps most amazing was her ability to officiate our interfaith ceremony (my wife’s Jewish heritage and my Catholic upbringing) seamlessly, incorporating both traditions while honoring the sanctity of both. Many of our guests raved that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever experienced.

Rev. Vicky was absolutely positively the BEST wedding officiant for our wedding.... Being very experienced and a scholar of world religions, she was able to adapt both the bride and the groom's (husband and wife) different backgrounds into one gorgeous ceremony.
We wanted a non-denominational, positive, inclusive, loving and open-spirited service under 15 minutes. She worked with us several times over Skype the month up to our wedding and was open to suggestions, never rigid or argumentative, prioritized our beliefs, and provided her script for us to review and make changes.
