  Mirelle Polovin,  Foundress & Wedding Officiant   I love joining couples together from all over the world, in the name of love. There’s truly no better backdrop to your most magical day than the beautiful nooks of Central Park, majestic city skyline, quaint gardens of the West Village, breathtaking rooftops of Midtown, or the exquisite expanse of the Brooklyn Promenade. I was born and raised in NYC and these gorgeous places were like my own backyard; it is such a treat to share them with you. I'm a wedding wordsmith and I’ll work with you to craft a ceremony that beautifully tells your love story; curated with the quirks and delights of your relationship, family traditions, toasts from your closest friends, meaningful readings, and the love you share with one another.    “From the day I stumbled upon Mirelle's site, I knew she was the officiant we wanted for our special day. Not only was Mirelle knowledgeable about all things elopement, she was very flexible and communicative with us. All of my questions answered and all of my fears calmed. On the day we eloped, she was cool, confident and relaxed, which made us feel the same vibe. We loved every minute of our customized ceremony, everything was just perfect! Thank you Honeybreak Officiants! Mirelle, you truly are a gem! XOXO Meena & Dean” - Meena, reviewed on Yelp 8/3/2018    “Pot of Honey(break) at the end of the rainbow! I would 100% recommend Honeybreak to any couples looking for an officiant! I felt we struck gold when booking with them. Mirelle was so super knowledgeable, approachable, kind & responsive. She made me feel SO at ease regarding any queries or concerns we had regarding our ceremony & the process in general. Planning a wedding from the other side of the globe is not an easy feat, but knowing that the most important part of the day (the ceremony!) was sorted - rather easily too I might add - made everything else fall into place. Mirelle helped to secure our Central Park location, provided us with local vendor recommendations, has beautiful vow templates and ways to tailor them to suit the individuals, and was always on the other end of an email if/when I had any questions! She has a beautiful, sweet nature, and I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to officiate our wedding ceremony. Thank you so much again :)” -Karen, reviewed on Wedding Wire 10/24/2018   photo by:  The Hons Photo

  Julia Pearlman,  Wedding Officiant   There is no greater privilege than to witness two people full of love and joy at the beginning of their marriage. I became an officiant to celebrate love between all couples and to help them bring that joy into the world. I can’t wait to learn about your love story and to craft a wedding ceremony that is unique to your relationship and that reflects the happiness you find in each other and amplify in the world every day.    “My hubby and I wanted to renew our vows in New York for our 35th anniversary, and Honeybreak Officiants put us in touch with Julia Pearlman. She was so much more than we could have wished for! She took so much time emailing, texting, and then talking to us before we arrived in New York - she knew our entire love story; the journey we'd taken through the years of our marriage - the good and the not-so-good - and she helped us write the meaningful, touching renewal of our vows for the rest of our lives. Julia is such a great listener, we felt as if she knew us inside out. She wrote the most personal ceremony for us, full of personal details that applied to our hearts. We feel truly re-married, and as though we have a close, personal friend who simply gets us! We highly recommend Julia and Honeybreak Officiants.” -Susan, reviewed on Yelp 7/2/2018    “Wow! Julia officiated our June 9 wedding and we could not have been happier! First of all, she is an extremely kind person and easy to work with. I have a hectic work schedule and she was very flexible in arranging an initial call and meeting with us. Second, she happily accommodated our very secular/feminist ceremony, and even spun our love story (which is special to us but not terribly interesting to others) into a captivating narrative (she’s a great writer!). After the ceremony, people raved about what an awesome job she did and thought that she was a very articulate close friend we’d asked to marry us. We can’t recommend Julia enough!” -Katherine, reviewed on Wedding Wire 6/18/2018

"Mirelle Eid was absolutely wonderful as our wedding officiant.  She made terrific suggestions for our non-religious ceremony and was a joy to work with as we planned our big day.  The day of, she was terrific- calm and supportive, joyful and professional, charming and fun.  Perfect choice- we recommend Mirelle most highly!" ~Emma

 

"Working with Mirelle has been a dream.  It is the perfect balance between creating a ceremony that is unique and personal to us and also providing the right amount of guidance and expertise." ~Kate

 

"We couldn't have been happier with Mirelle Eid as our wedding celebrant for my February NYC wedding.  From our first conversation I knew that planning the program/vows with Mirelle would be stress-free and tailored just for us!  I hadn't met Mirelle until the day of my wedding but she made it a point to visit me in my hotel room prior to the ceremony.  Our wedding ceremony was beautiful and Mirelle did a wonderful job.  It felt like she was one of our guests and was so truly so happy to be there for our joyous occasion; everyone commented on our vows! (Not a lot of dry eyes).  I highly recommend Mirelle as a wedding officiant, she has an awesome personality and very professional!"~Melissa

 

"A wonderful day thanks to Mirelle! She was very responsive and available during the whole process, gave us good advice about the venue, hair stylist, florist...The ceremony was just how we wanted it to be, we could exchange our vows in French, and we had a little surprise when she gave us messages from our whole family. Thank you very much Mirelle!" ~Sabrina & Yoann

 

"Mirelle Eid was our officiant on the 230 fifth avenue rooftop.  We can't praise her highly enough.  From the moment we met her on the day, we felt very comfortable and knew that our ceremony was going to be so special.  She was very responsive to all emails on the run up to the wedding day and all of our guests commented on what a beautiful ceremony she provided.  The options and guidelines to construct the ceremony were very useful and well presented.  We recommend her services to the highest. Top class." ~ Andrew & Drew

 

"We decided to keep our wedding very private, it was just us, our kids and a witness.  Mirelle Eid was our officiant and when we met her the day of our wedding, I already felt like I knew her.  She was very responsive and so kind and although the paperwork and suggestions were very detailed, she was available to Skype with us which eased our nerves.  I would suggest this to anyone getting married on a budget and wants to work with a professional who doesn't make it feel like a business transaction.  Mirelle was a part of our day and we feel blessed for finding her.  Our wedding was exactly what we wanted it to be." ~Chrisany

 

"Review of Mirelle Eid: My husband and I were lucky enough to blindly stumble upon Mirelle on Google, and are SO pleased we did.  Here's why: Firstly, she is incredibly easy to talk to.  Before talking to her on the phone and Skype, I was MOST terrified of an old, stuffy, religious officiant who was completely out-of-touch.  Mirelle, in contrast, is like a fun girlfriend who happens to have an incredible way with words. She went out of her way to ask us a detailed history of how we met.  Her program was so heartfelt, actually, that we saved excerpts for our scrapbook.  Secondly, Mirelle was organized.  She not only helped us to put together a plan with less than a month's notice, she even suggested potential spots in NYC for the ceremony.  We also come from mixed backgrounds and Mirelle did a great job of integrating all the ethnic wedding customs we dumped on her shoulders.  Lastly, Mirelle is sincere. Your wedding ceremony is really the beginning of your life together...you need the material for a story, but you also need someone to put it together in a beautiful way.  Someone who can tell their story and also help provide perspective and insight on what is to come.  We wanted something short, sweet, and simple, and Mirelle was the perfect choice for us.  Fingers crossed I won't need a wedding officiant again in the future but I can recommend her to any pairs in New York looking for their own bard to describe their own epic saga together. :)" ~Natalie

 

"It was a pleasure to have Mirelle Eid perform our wedding ceremony on 9/9/16 at the Bryant Park Grill.  From the very start, Mirelle was easy to work with, accommodating, and professional.  She took the time to meet with us months before our wedding and provided useful guidance in order to design and personalize our ceremony, which turned out to be absolutely perfect.  Mirelle has a wonderful presence- she is calm and poised, well-spoken, and kindhearted.  A number of our guests made the point to tell us what a unique and wonderful ceremony we had, and how they thought Mirelle did a fantastic job.  I would absolutely recommend.  Thank you!!!" ~Ali

 

"Mirelle Eid was a wonderful officiant.  My husband and I are from Miami and we had a destination wedding in New York City.  When deciding on an officiant, we were looking for someone who was dependable and professional.  Mirelle delivered and exceeded our expectations in every way!  She was sweet, responded quickly to my emails, and even scheduled a phone call appointment with us, where she was able to learn a little bit about us and she went into more details about how she works.  We immediately felt she was the perfect person to officiate our wedding.  She helped us write the perfect script for our wedding day and walked us through our rehearsal.  On our wedding day, we could not be happier with our decision.  Mirelle also submitted our marriage license application immediately after our wedding.  We enjoyed our 2 week honeymoon, and our wedding certificate was waiting for us when we got home! I would definitely recommend Mirelle as a wedding officiant.  We had a great experience with her!" ~Arelys

 

"Mirelle is very professional, helped write an incredibly creative and personal ceremony for us! A joy to work with. Thank you for making our wedding so special!" ~Jesse

 

"Our officiant was Mirelle. She was fantastic.  Very friendly and calm, which was exactly what we needed. :)" ~Stacey

 

"Mirelle Eid was our wedding officiant in NYC and we were so lucky to have her. She was funny, patient and totally went with the flow when it came to our informal ceremony. Of course like most weddings we were running way late. She never complained and was super helpful the day of. She even endured the freezing cold with us while we got married on the terrace of our hotel. She had great tips and outlines when it came to our vows. Mirelle answered all questions promptly. I would suggest her to EVERYONE. Thank you again for helping us make our day so special." ~Veronica

 

"I was so happy to have [Mirelle Eid} as our wedding officiant...Mirelle sent us samples of ceremony wording by e-mail.  We had no idea about the ceremony so it helped us to design our own ceremony...I picked 'Tree Planting Ceremony' as our unity ceremony.  I just told her the idea briefly, she added a beautiful explanation...my guests were impressed.  Entirely, the words she used in the ceremony was so beautiful and heartwarming.  She was kind enough to slow down the ceremony for me who is not native to English word.  It is hard for me to repeat sentence in English, I appreciated her kindness.  I was so happy to have this beautiful and kind officiant as our wedding officiant." ~Hatsumi

Questions? We have answers!

1.     Can we choose our officiant? How do we know if you’re the right officiant for us?

When you contact us, please include your wedding date, time, and location.  The officiant who is available for your ceremony will get in touch with you right away.  We suggest a phone call or video call where we’ll learn more about your ceremony, share more about our approach, and answer any questions you have.  After our initial call, we can arrange an in-person meeting at a coffee shop or café.  We understand that life can be busy, especially when planning a wedding, so we are also happy to Skype or FaceTime if that’s more convenient for you.

If you are outside of NYC or the U.S. and are coming here for your destination wedding, let’s communicate by email, phone, or Skype to talk more in detail about your NYC wedding plans. Call us at 860-478-6060 or email us at Mirelle@honeybreakofficiants.com

2.     Can we write our own vows?

Of course! We welcome it.  Your wedding ceremony is about your relationship and your journey together.  You should feel free to express your love to each other with handwritten vows.  We offer many options for traditional vows which you can use for reference or mix in with your personal vows.  It’s up to you!

3.     Can children, family, and friends take part in our ceremony?

Definitely.  Including your guests in your ceremony is a great way to make them feel special and an important part of your special day, which they are!  You can have them share a reading, give the final blessing, and/or take part in the unity ceremony.

4.     How long should a wedding ceremony be?

The length of your wedding ceremony is up to you.  On average, our custom ceremonies range from 15-20 minutes.  Quality over quantity; we take great care in crafting ceremonies that keep your guests present and engaged throughout.

5.     On our wedding day, what time will you arrive and leave?

We take timeliness very seriously.  We like to arrive 20-30 minutes before the start of the wedding ceremony, and sometimes sooner for weddings with larger wedding parties.  It’s important for us to check in with the two of you and everyone involved in the ceremony, to ensure everyone knows their roles and so that everything runs smoothly.  During this time, you may choose to complete your marriage license, or you may choose to complete this after the ceremony.  I typically do not stay to attend the wedding reception.

6.     What are the next steps once we choose to work with you?

We ask for some information to write up our contract to secure the date and time.  We also ask for a $100 deposit.  Once we’ve received the deposit and the contract back countersigned, we will send you our Honeybreak Officiant ceremony collection; the document you’ll use to make your ceremony choices.

7.     What are your fees?

Full wedding ceremony

$400-$800

Elopements

$400-$450

Central Park elopements

$350-$450

Signing the marriage license and nothing more

$200

8.     Do we need to have a witness present for our ceremony?

Yes.  New York state requires that you have on witness (separate from the Officiant).  If you’re from out of town and need a witness, we can usually provide one for a fee of $50. If you’ve hired a photographer, you can also choose to ask them to sign your license as your witness.

9.     Do you perform LGBTQ weddings?

Absolutely. We support marriage equality and stand by our motto, “weddings for everyone.” We are honored to celebrate the triumphant love stories of ALL couples who want to declare their commitment to the one they love.  We welcome couples of all genders and sexual orientations, from all over the country and the world, who choose to get married in New York.

10.  How far in advance should I contact you to book my ceremony?

As soon as you have your date planned! We like to allow plenty of time to plan and personalize your wedding ceremony. We perform many last-minute elopements too, please call us to find out if we’re available.

11.  Do you travel outside of New York City to perform wedding ceremonies?

Yes! We perform weddings across New York State, in Long Island, Westchester County, and The Hamptons.  There is an additional travel charge for weddings performed outside of the city.  Let's set up a date to talk more in detail about your wedding plans.

12.  How do I obtain my marriage license?

You can expedite the process online but you must both be present to complete the process in person.  We'll review all of the details during our first meeting so that you understand your responsibilities. It's important have these requirements handled before your wedding day to ensure that your marriage is legal.

Here are some helpful links for New York State and NYC:


New York State Marriage License
The City of New York Marriage Bureau

13.  What if I want to change my name?

In many states, including New York, you must choose what name you will use before you apply for the marriage license and record that name on the license during the application process. 

After your wedding day, you will use your Marriage Certificate to change your name for Social Security, driver’s license, bank accounts and credit cards.

14.  What's the best way to contact you?

We would love to hear from you! For further information, to check our availability or inquire about fees, please send us an email or give us a call with additional information about your ceremony!
