Wedding Ceremonies

Choosing An Officiant:

Deciding on the person who will be the voice that takes you over the threshold of marriage is one of the most important decisions you will make about your wedding celebration.  This person will welcome your guests, share your love story,  guide you through reciting your vows and present you to the world as a married couple.

You will want someone who is caring, warm and easy to talk to. You will need a person who will take time to learn about you both as a couple and your vision for that day. This person should be a calming presence on your wedding day so that you can relax and be in the moment of this most significant event.

With a calling and passion for what I do, I welcome the opportunity of getting to  know you, to assisting you in creating your customized ceremony and to facilitating this joyous occasion for you, whether it be a marriage, a civil union or a vow renewal.

My Services:

During our complimentary consultation I will share with you information about my ceremonies, examples of the meaningful elements that can be used in weddings and ideas to personalize your particular, one-of-a-kind wedding.  If you choose to use my services we will continue our conversation, over time, on a deeper level.  I will get to know about you both and your relationship with the use of a questionnaire, so that I can write your love story to be read at your ceremony. You may choose to write your own vows or I can point you to sources to draw from, or we can write them together…you will know when the words are right.

Once the ceremony has been written, you will have unlimited access to making changes, you will approve the final script and can rest assured that I will not deviate from it except in extreme circumstances.

I will conduct the rehearsal the night before to assure as few items are left to chance as possible. I will be among the first to arrive on the day of your wedding, coordinate with the other vendors, and officiate your ceremony in a professional and joyful manner. After the wedding I will present you with a beautiful keepsake copy of the ceremony.
