From Brooklyn, New York to Lancaster, Pennsylvania
Since I get to know a lot about the couples I officiate weddings for, I think it’s only fair that you get to know at least a little about me, Reenie Panzini.
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and I still have a bit of an accent… or maybe more than a bit. You can tell me when we meet. I’ve had many, many wedding guests come up to me after a ceremony and try to guess where I’m from. I suppose I sound a little different and no one can really put their finger on it; it’s a fun game. Most of my family still lives in NYC and come to visit often. When they do, my accent immediately returns and even after they leave, my kids struggle to understand me for a few days! Lol
I’ve lived in Lancaster, Pa. for nearly 15 years with my husband, three kids, 2 dogs, and a turtle named Fred who is around 30 years-old, watches television and scratches at the glass of his tank if you block his view. I kid you not. Fred is a very odd turtle.
I’ve been in the wedding industry for almost 20 years and have been officiating weddings for over 10. I attended The New Seminary (TNS) for Interfaith Studies in NYC, where I hold the title of Associate Minister of the Interfaith Temple (the ordaining body of TNS) and act as a member of the Pastoral Care Team. While I am a legally ordained, seminary trained, Interfaith Minister, I do NOT expect you (or really want you to) call me Reverend. Yes, I will sign all your forms with Reverend Panzini because legally that is who I am BUT I am much more comfortable with just Reenie.
Reenie is awesome! She was thorough, timely, and very kind throughout the marriage process with me and my husband. She... created the perfect vows for us that were tailored to our special day. She even included an important cultural aspect to the ceremony for us. The vows she wrote were so beautiful. They made me cry when I read them, and make me cry every time I watch our wedding video. She is talented, professional, and enthusiastic. I highly recommend her! Thank you, Reenie! You helped make our day very memorable and special.read more

If you are looking for an officiant to help you celebrate love, I don't think there's a more perfect person in the... world! Reenie is so adorable and fun - I think meeting her was one of the times I was most excited for my wedding. She was more than receptive to the unique ideas we had for our ceremony and she helped us add the traditional elements that we were struggling with but wanted to include. Plus she just exudes acceptance, love, and positivity which was evident in all our communications, including the big day (April 2014). I would absolutely recommend Reenie to anyone getting married in/around the Lancaster area!read more
