Dear Father Steve
Thank you so much for officiating at our wedding. We really appreciate your help in
putting together a ceremony that reflected our beliefs and backgrounds and your
willingness to work together with Rabbi Jacques Cukierkorn. We were very nervous
when we started planning that we weren't going to find someone who would support and guide
us in our journey to plan an interfaith ceremony and marriage and you did all that and
more. Your sense of humor and open mindedness made our wedding day the perfect combination
of FUN and celebration.
And on top of it all, you came all the way up to Lutsen! Our guests really enjoyed
the ceremony and you two as officiants, and the Z's (an elderly couple) for whom you did a
special blessing, were incredibly touched - they were married (about 40) years ago by a
rabbi and no priest would officiate.
The world needs more champions for respectful, celebratory interfiath marriages, and Ari
and I feel incredibly lucky to have found that in you. Thank you for reminding us we
are all God's children.
All our best,
Kelly and Ari
