"Rabbi Stratford was more than we could have asked for in a wedding officiant! We found him at the last minute only a few months before our wedding, but that did not deter him from making us feel as comfortable and supported as possible...We received numerous compliments on the ceremony the day of our wedding, which we owe to him! Thanks for everything Rabbi Simon."
