YES. I WILL MARRY YOU.
All you need is love. And a good guide to help you experience as many dimensions of the heart as possible. I customize and deliver ceremonies to celebrate any of life’s meaningful transitions and milestones, but I specialize in weddings.
I am an interfaith minister and spiritual director. By the end of autumn 2019, I will have officiated at more than fifty weddings – and a smattering of other ceremonies across the life-cycle. Any rite of passage is customizable. Ceremonies can be sacred or secular, multi-cultural, interfaith, or designed around whatever belief systems speak to you. I listen carefully to you and your world. We co-create a ceremony that gives voice to your unique story, your own life journey.
My goal is for you to be spiritually and emotionally available during your ceremony, to be fully present and absorb the deepest meaning of all that is intended. I bring an open mind, a love of storytelling, a writer’s skill, and years of experience to craft one of a kind ceremony that people have called inspirational, heartfelt and memorable.
Is A Celebrant Different From An Officiant?
A celebrant is an officiant who has undertaken significant study and training to create and deliver ceremonies. In this, we make a commitment to a code of professional ceremonial standards. Celebrants explore, in depth, the history, theory, and practice of ceremony, rituals, and rites of passage across belief systems, ethnicities, and cultures. For me, this field of expertise is given further strength by my life experience traveling and working in many places around the world.
Let’s Get Started
Please contact me by phone, email, or via the wedding websites Wedding Wire or The Knot. I will make sure to get back to you within 24 hours. If your desired ceremony date is available, we will connect and determine whether we are a good fit together.
Consultations are always free. I am happy to meet for a cup of coffee when it is geographically feasible or to have a face-to-face cyber conversation. It is no pressure, no obligation meeting.
The range for my ceremonies is $500 – $1500 and up. An average cost is $700.
My fee depends on a number of variables. It primarily supports the time I invest in researching, writing, designing and officiating at your ceremony.
Other cost factors include rehearsal oversight, travel expenses, and any specialized services. Payment is always due in full when you book. This protects the date for both of us. I spend as much time as it takes to create your ceremony exactly as you desire, working in concert with you until it meets with your final approval.
I am happy to assist you in finding readings, rituals, and language that reflect your intention and who you are. Those who favor this level of focus understand what it brings to the meaning and honoring of their ceremony.
Thank you in advance for trusting me with your love story.
