Rabbi Marcey performed a beautiful ceremony. She was incredibly accommodating and lovely to work with. All the guests were blown away by talent, she is a true gem! Marcey made having a wedding in the time of COVID not only easy but enjoyable. She respected all of our wishes regarding safety and social distancing concerns. I could not have asked for a better ceremony. I HIGHLY recommend Rabbi Marcey to every couple!

I can't say enough about Rabbi Wagner.  She taught all four of my children about Judaism and tutored them for their Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, including one with special needs.  The ceremonies were meaningful and heartfelt.  She performed my adult Bat Mitzvah and the Bar Mitzvah of my 88 year old grandfather. She has performed many family baby namings, unveilings and funerals.  Rabbi Wagner is kind, caring and warm.  I would trust her with any service needed for a loved one. We consider Rabbi Wagner part of our family.

Rabbi Wagner officiated at our father’s funeral and graveside service exhibiting such extreme compassion, empathy, and thoughtfulness during this most difficult time. By doing so, Rabbi Wagner brought us all together in a special way enabling us to have a very meaningful day of remembrance that transcended the sadness we felt over our great loss.

Rabbi Wagner officiated at my Mother’s funeral in 2006. My Mother’s death was very sudden and none of us were prepared for it in any way whatsoever. The Rabbi gently walked us through the entire process and helped us planned what was needed from beginning to end. She was truly our guiding light during this most turbulent time.

The graveside service was absolutely beautiful. The Rabbi spoke so movingly about my Mother and her words were so loving and comforting. Through her magnificent singing we all felt a deep connection to one another and to our past and future.

Rabbi Wagner brought peace and love to a challenging journey and we remain forever grateful.

"Marcey was easy to work with, not only because she is highly organized and a great communicator, but also because she made my wife and I feel at ease right from the get-go.  She worked with us to craft a ceremony which contained meaningful, personal details, while still feeling connected to historic, Jewish customs.  Marcey is also extremely knowledgeable and taught us about both the components of a traditional ceremony and the different spiritual and academic approaches to same-sex ceremonies.  She asked us poignant questions, the answers to which made their way into our vows and into Marcey's comments during our ceremony.  Marcey's expertise, warmth, and genuineness permeated every interaction leading up to the wedding and shone through during the ceremony itself.  We could not have been more pleased to have chosen Marcey to officiate our wedding."

Rabbi Marcey Wagner officiated my wedding in the middle of a pandemic. I found her, highly rated on The Knot. After several zoo meetings and never actually meeting face to face, she managed to put together the most perfect wedding ceremony for us. It was personable and thoughtful and you would think that she knew us for years. All safety precautions were taken and she was so so sweet! I would 100% highly recommend using Cantor Marcey Wagner for your big, small, long or short wedding ceremony! She’s truly the best!!

In December of 2008, Rabbi Marcey Wagner conducted my mother-in-law’s graveside service with extraordinary grace, empathy and stoic endurance for the wind driven icy rain that compounded our misery.

Her steady presence and beautiful voice soothed us. Her kind words of remembrance for our “warrior woman” holocaust survivor were especially meaningful and deeply moving and fortified our spirits amid the surreal backdrop.

We shall never forget her kindness and her standing tough against the elements -  a fitting tribute to our brave Jadzia who had endured so much.
