Ceremonies. Joining Hands and Hearts is considered the
primer for creating personalized interfaith, intercultural marriage ceremonies—straight from the heart. JHH has been favorably reviewed by such notables as Dr. Bernie Siegel, The Very Rev. Forrest Church as well as celebrity wedding planners and authors David Tutera and Marcy
Blum. Publishers Weekly dubbed Macomb’s work as “cutting edge.” Rev. Macomb has conducted over 2000 extraordinary ceremonies nationally and internationally—changing the way we approach ceremony and ritual.
She and her work have been featured on CNN, MNSBC, ABC, NPR, TLC, the Ananda Lewis Show and the Maury Povich Show and in the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, New York Magazine, The Huffington Post, Modern Bride, Martha Stewart Weddings, Pregnancy Magazine and Time Out NY as well as other media venues.

Macomb received a second ordination as a Sufi cheraga in The Universal Worship Service. Macomb has written articles for various interfaith publications and websites. She has been called many things:“the love minister”, “reverend extraordinaire “the ultimate wedding goddess”, “a pastor without walls” , “a trailblazer” — but her favorite remains “the fairy godmother of officiants.” It suits her personality!
