Interfaith Weddings
by Rabbi Barry Tuchman

"Creating a ceremony as unique as the two of you."

Welcome to Weddings With Spirit. Rabbi Barry Tuchman performs Jewish, Interfaith, non-denominational and alternative wedding ceremonies also supporting the LGBT community. Rabbi Barry will help you create an wedding ceremony as unique as the two of you. While living in Southern California, Rabbi Barry will travel anywhere in the World to officiate your wedding ceremony.

Interfaith wedding ceremonies can be a very challenging process. Many of today’s interfaith couples desire to participate in a more spiritual rather than religious ceremony. Rabbi Barry honors all faiths including Jewish, Christian, Catholic, Buddhist, Native American, and all wedding traditions.

“A Wedding With Spirit is Love, Laughter and Tears of Joy.
A Special Day, warm memories of friends and family.
A day to share your deepest feelings.
A ceremony just for you and the one you love.”

Your Ceremony

Planning the Spirit of your Wedding

Each wedding ceremony I approach individually and creatively. There are no two couples alike and a wedding ceremony should not be “one size fits all”. I will assist you in the planning of your ceremony, with the two of you in the forefront. My intention is to compliment the two of you. Consider this; you have a twenty to thirty minute window of opportunity during your ceremony to share your most heartfelt feelings for each other, in front of some of the most important people in your lives. You should not need to compromise in any way with every word spoken. With the short span of time you have, I am sure you want words that relate to who you both are. Together we will construct a ceremony that will reflect your union and the fundamental beliefs that you share.

oceancoupleWe will meet together initially to gather information regarding your needs and desires as well as help you with the elements that you wish to include in your ceremony. I will share suggestions and ideas that will bring your desires to a visual and personal vision of celebration.

During our time together, you will have an opportunity to get a sense of my style and presentation. I believe that it is extremely important to share all details with you so that you will not have any surprises. This is very important in terms of interfaith ceremonies. The last thing you want is to be surprised by a statement that you didn’t expect to hear as you share this time with family and friends. I will perform the entire ceremony for you as it is being created. This eliminates any anxiety on your part so you can rest assured that your ceremony will come off just as you have planned.

Cost is always an issue when budgeting for a wedding. It is typical to easily over spend on many of the products and services needed. Factors in the cost of your wedding are based on date, time and location of the wedding. I am usually able to fit into almost every budget.

Some of my wedding venues have been:

The Ritz Carlton, The Bel Air Hotel, Westlake Inn, The Beverly Hills Hotel, Throughout Mexico, Tokyo, Japan, Ecuador, Guatemala City, Hawaii, Big Sur, Yachts and Coastal and Mountain Retreats. Theme weddings are a specialty for me and I am happy to help with creative suggestions that have worked wonders in past weddings.

Pre-Marital Counseling is available at the couple’s wishes but is not required. Some of the topics covered in counseling are conflict resolution, communications skills, religious differences, sexual issues and planning for children. Weddings With Spirit also has trained psychotherapists available for deeper issues that may be problematic such as early childhood trauma or molestation. Please ask for a referral.

In addition, Weddings With Spirit has available Wedding Coordinators that can join you the day before or on the day of the wedding, to handle all the details that may come up. Coordinators are also available to handle your wedding from beginning to end. Please ask for details.

It is my desire to help make your special day, a day that will be lovingly remembered by all… A Wedding as Unique as the two of you!

Create Your Customized Ketubah

My Rabbi’s Ketubah

Your Ketubah is an important part of your wedding day – something that will be cherished throughout the years.  In the past, couples had very little involvement with the creation of their Ketubah. My Rabbi’s Ketubah was designed to include you in every step of the creative process while remaining affordable.

We are unique to other Ketubah companies, who charge extra for every change or customization.  

My Rabbi’s Ketubah offers you and your beloved a one of a kind opportunity to collaborate with the artist, and create a Ketubah that is uniquely yours.

As you go through the selection process for your Ketubah, you will be able to request color changes, change the text, add your own images, and personalize it at no extra cost.
