Why do couples hire Chaplain Mitzi Schwarz as their Wedding Celebrant? The answers are simple!

First and foremost, couples describe Mitzi as “ecumenically correct”.

Mitzi is equally comfortable serving as a Celebrant for Jewish couples, as well as those couples who are Interfaith, Spiritual-but-not-Religious, and/or Humanist.
