It is my passion to create, officiate, and celebrate your dream wedding ceremony. By following the traditional order of service in a non-traditional way, I craft your wedding ceremony to delight you, the wedding couple, and to engage family and friends in your personal journey to your wedding day. Your wedding ceremony is built around you and your love story: how you met and fell in love, the qualities you found so special in one another that you want to be together forever, and the future you have dreamed together.
I have what is called a global ministry. I specialize in meeting the needs of diverse clients, and serve both couples who want to be involved in the process of creating their ceremony, as well as couples who prefer me to take care of creating their ceremony for them.
I am delighted to design and officiate wedding ceremonies for:
Couples who are unchurched
Couples who prefer a non-religious ceremony
Couples who have a family minister who is not available to perform their ceremony
Couples who are interfaith
Couples who are intercultural
Couples who are same sex or LGBTQ+
Every wedding couple I work with has the final say in what you say and how you say it on this most romantic and special day of your life.
I book up quickly, so please contact me as soon as possible to check my availability for your intended wedding date and location. I will get back to you right away to schedule your free consultation.
Free Wedding Ceremony Consultation
At your free consultation, I listen carefully to what you share with me about your relationship, your values, and your dreams and expectations for your wedding ceremony on your special day. I take the time to connect with each of you as individuals, and to learn about how your personalities blend as a couple. These things are important to me so I know the best way to guide you through the process of planning your marriage ceremony, which is, after all, the jewel in the crown of your special day. I love people! Therefore, I make sure that my warmth and cooperative attitude will have you, the bride and groom/wedding couple, feeling that you are being escorted through the gateway to marriage by a trusted and caring friend. I am here for you!
Premarital Assessment and Follow-up Session
This is an optional service, but one that I highly recommend. I encourage all couples I work with to consider filling out a simple, online couple’s inventory to assess your relationship and compatibility in more than 20 areas that are vital to a good marriage.
A Beautifully-crafted Wedding Ceremony
I believe that the very best wedding ceremonies are full of warmth, personal touches, and are designed around your unique love story, who you are as the bride and groom/wedding couple, and the beliefs that will undergird your marriage. Weaving these personal elements into your wedding ceremony—plus our positive connection—creates an atmosphere of inclusion that inspires your guests to feel they are not simply observing your marriage rites, but are also participating in the joyful and sacred celebration of your love. Your guests will always smile when they recall how wonderful they felt at your wedding, and so will you!
Wedding Day Support and Guidance
Your wedding day is one of the most meaningful and important days of your life, and my attention will be focused on you for the full day. Your marriage ceremony is a rite of passage and the gateway to your married life. I honor this by arriving in plenty of time to be there for you, the wedding couple, in case you have last-minute questions or concerns before I perform your wedding ceremony — a ceremony that is a beautiful and romantic reflection of your two hearts as they join to become one brand new family.
When it’s time for your marriage ceremony, I will deliver your wedding service with warmth, confidence, and grace, and perhaps a little humor. As I pronounce you husband and wife or wedded couple, you will both begin the beautiful adventure of married life with laughter, smiles, and kisses.
As your celebrant, I will have your marriage license signed by your witnesses on the day of your wedding. I will complete the officiant sections, sign the document, and return your marriage license to the Register of Deeds office for the issuing county.
Ceremony Packages to Fit Every Budget
Now, let’s talk about fees. I am pleased to offer wedding ceremony options to fit every budget, although I'm not able to be exact about fees prior to our initial consultation. I’m not trying to be secretive, it’s just that I’ll need to get to know you a little better so I can guide you to selections from an extensive number of ceremony options and add my own creative touches that will be good fits for your taste, beliefs, personalities, and budget. Then, I will be able to give you final pricing.
