Sandra was a great choice to officiate our small wedding! She delivered an enthusiastic and graceful ceremony that incorporated elements from both our cultures seamlessly. We felt at ease with her leading us through the ceremony. It’s hard to think of our wedding without her involvement. We’d happily recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant! November 27, 2021

Sandra was the perfect officiant for us. It was very comforting to have Sandra officiating on our big day. Her character and attitude definitely put us at ease.
We really appreciated the way Sandra worked with us to customize our ceremony in such a short time. She was open and available to connect at anytime.
We highly recommend Sandra to anyone looking for an officiant. November 20,2021

Sandra Ruch was amazing! She completely exceeded our expectations and made the entire process very easy and straightforward. As for the actual ceremony, we were able to customize it to suit us perfectly. She delivered the service with such passion and warmth – I would highly recommend her! Thank you so much, Sandra!

Sandra Ruch made the whole process so easy from assisting us in creating a ceremony that worked for us, to perfect execution on the actual day. Not only is Sandra such a lovely woman, she is professional, warm, takes the time to get to know you both as a couple and also punctual. We could not have asked for a better officiant to perform our ceremony. Highly recommend! Jennifer & Chris September 2021

Spring Wedding in a Pandemic

Sandra, we’d like to take the opportunity to thank you once again for the wonderful ceremony and being such a kind and accommodating officiant. AJ and I had an incredible day that we will forever cherish largely in part to your efforts.

Bat Mitzvah Preparation: a review

We began our Bat Mitzvah journey with SandraLaya nearly a year ago, after she was recommended by her colleague as the perfect spiritual leader to help our family bring to life a warm, welcoming and deeply meaningful Bat Mitzvah ceremony for our 12 year old daughter.

SandraLaya is genuinely passionate about Judaism and Jewish education and she is a very caring, inspirational and considerate professional. We were so impressed at how she always provided the right amount of encouragement, support and challenge that allowed our daughter to have the confidence and skills to enjoy and appreciate what she was learning.

This has been an enriching and fulfilling process that has provided our daughter with an important foundation and a lifelong positive connection to the Jewish value of ‘tikkun olam’.

While we’ve already had to postpone and reschedule the Bat Mitzvah twice, due to the pandemic, our family looks forward to enjoying this life celebration with SandraLayas’s guidance and support in the future.Thank you SandraLaya, you’re the best!

We had the honour and pleasure of having Sandra Ruch officiate our wedding ceremony and could not have asked for a more delightful person. She was very professional and easy to communicate with leading up to the wedding. She offered a great deal of insight and flexibility with the ceremony, especially since we planned our wedding in a very short amount of time. Her energy radiated and filled the room during the ceremony, and we laughed plenty. We also received a compliment from our photographer that Sandra was great at finding the perfect spots to be in/out of photos, which is a skill I never expected! She surpassed all our expectations and we loved working with her. We would absolutely recommend Sandra for all your officiating needs!

Sandra Ruch was everything, and more we thought she would be. Our ceremony was personable and fun. We had an island theme and she dressed for the part. She had everyone’s attention and several people told us after the ceremony that they even cried, with how beautiful it was. We had a cross section of family and friends at our wedding and EVERY single one of them commented on Sandra’s officiating. Thank you Sandra! With much love….Alice & Melanie February 2020
