With over 23 years of experience in the wedding industry, from a young age, Minister Christopher has coordinated and officiated hundreds of weddings throughout his career.

Born and raised in Long Island New York, at the age of just 15 Christopher began working behind the scenes setting up and helping coordinate the various aspects for several well known wedding entertainment companies. Well over a decade he grew with the industry, eventually becoming a Master of Ceremonies and a Wedding Event Coordinator.  

His Love and Passion for his career is what naturally transitioned him to becoming one of the best known officiants in the wedding scene.  Many of his couples bonded with him so much they asked for him to not only be their Master of Ceremonies, but also to officiate their ceremony for them as well! To this day, Christopher feels that officiating for couples for one of the most important moments of their lifetime was his “true calling.” 

Eventually, Christopher continued to pursue his love officiating and opened up NY Officiants which serves the entire New York Region. 

Fully Certified and Registered in all of New York State, including all the 5 boroughs, Christopher continuously receives rave reviews from all of his clients. He offers an experience that NO OTHER officiant offers!

His “Personalized and Unique” “Love Story” is what sets Minister Christopher, and NY Officiants apart from your average officiant.  There are no pre-written scripts! He takes the time to get to know his couples right from the start of your romance until the wedding day itself.

Christopher is very easy to work with, always is available any time of day or night, and will always go above and beyond to make every detail you envision played out precisely for your ceremony. 

He promises to make sure you are 100% satisfied! 

“I always create a bond with my brides and grooms as if they were family. It is for that reason, that together we are able to create this magically and memorable experience that you will remember for a lifetime to come.”

Personal Hobbies

When there finally is some time to unwind, which is rare, my wife and I are either in the Poconos at our cabin, or in Florida at her mother's house. I absolutely love the outdoors and nature.  I can quickly do a "Clark Kent" from the professional Wedding Officiant look with a suit on and slicked back hair to the "rugged" outdoorsman with the beard and hiking boots quite quickly.😊 You will most likely see me on a trail in Pennsylvania with my wife and "FurBaby" daughter 14 year old Amy who is a teacup Yorkie jumping into Waterfalls or Kayaking.  If you catch me in Florida I will most liklely be fishing, scuba diving, swimming with the sharks with our Friend Tony or on our Jet Ski.

Chris was the absolute best. We received so many compliments on our beautiful ceremony. We no longer live in New York & Chris was beyond helpful with the marriage license paperwork. From the first phone call with Chris, we knew that we had nothing to worry about!

Christopher of NY Officiants made our wedding ceremony pure magic! He gave us all the info we needed before the ceremony, did a rehearsal and gave us the opportunity to ask any questions. We really wanted a non denomination and light hearted ceremony, and Christopher catered to that effortlessly. The cermony went so smoothly thanks to him! He even found my missing handkerchief! I am so glad we booked him early on in our planning because he was the absolute best! Highly recommend booking NY Officiants!

Christopher at NY officiants was so professional, kind, and exceptional. He made our day better than we could have imagined. He’s combination of humor and touching story telling is something that cannot be replicated. He took the time to get to know us as a couple and create ld a completely personal ceremony.

From the moment we talked to Officiant Christopher on the phone during our first meeting we felt at ease and knew he was the one! He speaks so beautifully and said just the right amount of light hearted comments in the ceremony. Our guests said they thought he was a friend of ours because of the beautiful things he was saying. He arrived early the day of and ran through what was going to happen with us. 1000% recommend NY Officiants ! Thank you Officiant Christopher !

Chris from NYOfficiants officiated our ceremony! Chris was the man in charge. He took care of every detail with professionalism and care. His diligence in coaching us through the process cannot be understated. We requested to perform a unity cross and Chris sent us his rendition of it and made the adjustments we requested immediately and made sure it was how we wanted it. Guests have told us that they felt entranced in his storytelling and made us feel as if we were in a fairytale. If you want your fairytale wedding definitely use NYOfficants and Chris. Thank you for welcoming us into our forevermore.

We had Chris as our officiant from NY Officiants. He was amazing! He has a huge range of options to choose from to make the ceremony special. His created us a love story and every moment and thing said was perfect. It was a fantastic mix of funny and grounding. All of my guests raved about how great he was a what a good time they had watching the ceremony.

From the moment we met Chris, we felt like we had known each other for years. A zoom meeting that was supposed to be 30 minutes, turned into almost 2 hours! LOL Chris was so personable, informative, patient and honest. He knows this field extremely well. He was able to suggest venues to decor. Certainly knows his bells and whistles. I would trust Chris with my wedding dress decisions! Haha There was no doubt that when we had our meet & greet signing, our friends & family would feel the same about Chris. We are all looking forward to our BIG wedding day next year with, of course, Chris as our officiant again (AND as our MC!)

I had originally reached out to Chris on a Monday night looking for an officiant for the Friday only a few days in advance. He responded immediately and everything was set up within the hour. We decided to do the meet and greet signing, but it was much more than that. It was the perfect intimate ceremony that we wanted. Chris was extremely professional throughout the whole process and made us feel comfortable during the ceremony. Highly recommended for all types of weddings.

Chris made our day unbelievably special - not only accommodating us last minute, but also adding special touches to make our elopement with family so meaningful. We couldn’t imagine it any other way. HIGHLY recommend!

I got married on September 15th and Christopher was the Officiant. He was absolutely great to work with. Not only did he walk us through the process from start to finish but he made sure everything I wanted was beautifully carried out. I also appreciated that he was respectful in asking us whether we wanted our day to be formal/serious or relaxed/jokes, of course we chose the latter and he certainly delivered. I would definitely recommend using him for your wedding.

Christopher was nothing short of perfect. So many people came up to us after the ceremony to tell us how special and sweet it was. The amount of personalization and detail that Christopher included in the ceremony meant so much to us. Christopher even went the extra mile and filmed our entire ceremony. The video was ready just days after the wedding for us to enjoy and it was done so professionally. We couldn't have asked for anything more. I would 10/10 recommend NY Officiants to any couple that wants a unique and beautiful ceremony that everyone will remember.
