Congratulations! Mazel tov! You found the love of your life, the person you want to marry. That was the hard part.

The rest is cake. (And flowers, seating arrangements, choosing a band...Egads!!)

We have three rabbis on our team ready to help you create an unforgettable wedding that is fun, celebratory and most importantly, you! We will try to make the wedding process as low stress as we can; you have enough on your plate right now.

Rabbi Evon Yakar, Rabbi "Buz" Bogage and Rabbi Jamie Korngold comprise the Adventure Rabbi wedding team.

Before your wedding, the rabbi will meet with you twice to plan your wedding.

Through these discussions, we will help you shape a wedding that reflects your personalities. When your wedding day arrives, we will have gotten to know you both and will be able to share with your guests what marriage and commitment mean to you. Your wedding day will be a unique reflection of your relationship and commitment to each other.

Rabbi Yakar offers additional sessions of premarital counseling using the time tested Prepare and Enrich system. These meetings are a lovely opportunity to focus on your marriage, not just your wedding. Think of these times as an oasis in the craziness of wedding planning.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Do you work with interfaith couples?
Rabbi Bogage, our interfaith wedding specialist, would be honored to officiate or officiate at your interfaith wedding. He has no restrictions on days or times. He does not perform non-religious ceremonies. Couples (and their parents) love his wedding ceremonies, because he is non-judgmental, open minded and inclusive. He is based in Denver Colorado and Palm Springs California. More>>

Rabbi Yakar will perform interfaith weddings but does not co-officiate with non-Jewish clergy. Couples love his weddings because they are inclusive and personalized. He is based in South Lake Tahoe, California with frequent visits to Boulder, Colorado.

Rabbi Korngold will perform interfaith weddings and non-religious ceremonies for couples who are either part of the Adventure Rabbi community or are getting married in a really, really cool place, such as backcountry in Rocky Mountain National Park or on the ski slopes. She is based in Boulder Colorado, with easy access to Summit County and Eagle County.

Q: How will we get to know the rabbi?
A: The Rabbi meets with you for two sessions before your wedding ceremony.

Q: What if we live out of town or don’t have time for meetings?
A: Many of the Rabbis' clients live out of town and even overseas. You might choose to fly in one extended meeting, or do the work by phone. Sometimes the Rabbi and the couple meet in person for the first time at the wedding, although it always feels like we have known each other for ages. The most important work can be done over the phone, in two sessions.

Q: Do the Rabbis co-officiate with non-Jewish clergy?
Rabbi Bogage does co-officiate with non-Jewish clergy and will be glad to work with you to design a wedding in which he can represent your Jewish heritage. More>>

Q: Will the rabbis perform ceremonies on Shabbat?
A: Rabbi Bogage will perform a ceremony on Shabbat at the time of your choosing.

Q: How do I pick which rabbi to hire?
A. Most of our couples select the rabbi based on availability. Any of our rabbis will work with you to create a personalized and unique wedding.

All of our rabbis are wedding specialists and are able to focus deeply on each couple with whom they work. We are known for creating wedding ceremonies that meet the couples needs, rather than intruding with our own menu of what "should" happen. Rabbi Yakar or Rabbi Bogage will be happy to chat with you to see if he will be a good fit for your wedding ceremony.

Because of her heavy tour schedule, Rabbi Korngold works primarily with couples who are involved in the Adventure Rabbi community.

Q: What are the Fees?
A: Our wedding ceremony fees represent the time and attention we give to each wedding couple. The Rabbis spend approximately ten hours preparing for each wedding or 12 hours when Rabbi Bogage co-officiates with another clergy. This includes meetings with the couples, writing a personalized ceremony and officiating at the ceremony. You can see our fee schedule here>>>

Q: Where are the Rabbis based?
Rabbi Bogage is based in Palm Springs California and Denver Colorado. Rabbi Yakar is based in Lake Tahoe California and Boulder Colorado. Rabbi Korngold is based in Boulder Colorado, with easy access to Summit County Colorado.

Q: Will the Rabbis travel out of State or to other Countries?
Rabbi Yakar and Rabbi Bogage are willing to travel to perform weddings, although the fees do increase to account for the additional time required to travel.

For specifics on fees for both rabbis or to arrange a contract, call Rabbi Korngold at (303) 417-6200, or click here to have a Rabbi contact you now.

Q:How does the payment process work?
A: Wedding couples pay a 50% non-refundable deposit to hold the wedding date. The final 50% will be charged on the day before your wedding. We accept Visa, Master Card and AmEx. Dates are not held until the deposit is received.

What couples say about our wedding ceremonies

Rabbi Jamie,

We feel so lucky to have found you! No one else could have pulled off such a ceremony that really "got" us. You so smoothly and beautifully integrated tradition and culture with the meaning we derive from your lives together.

With Love,
Lauren and Jason

********************************************************************************Rabbi Yakar:

I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with the wedding - you did an absolutely WONDERFUL job, and we've heard nothing but amazing feedback from our guests, both Jews and non-Jews alike.

I can't even tell you how many people said it was the most moving, meaningful and inclusive wedding they've ever attended.

My parents have been raving about you to everyone who asks about the wedding, and Bruce and I couldn't be happier.

We're only hoping that someone got it on tape, as we can't remember everything!

Thank you again for everything!
- Kim



Rabbi Yakar:
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate everything you did for us. Ray & I both had a great feeling about you during our phone conversations, and can't tell you enough how much we appreciate the fact that you really took note in every detail we spoke of on the phone and during breakfast, and you did an absolutely wonderful job incorporating them into the ceremony.

As we watch the ceremony on our wedding video, we especially realize how eloquent you spoke, and how beautiful and personalized the ceremony was. We think the world of you as a rabbi and as a person.

Carolyn & Ray
