Officiating the Ceremonies of Your Life
Whether you are planning a loving wedding or a poignant memorial service, it would be my honor to be your Wedding Officiant or Memorial Service Celebrant. As a Life Cycle Celebrant, my focus is learning who you are so your voice and choices shine through in your ceremony. Whatever your desires, I listen without preconceived notions of what your ceremony should be like. The end result will be a creation that is personalized and one which celebrates love. What sets me apart from other Wedding Officiants or Memorial Service Celebrants is that the ceremonies I design aren’t off-the-shelf or a cookie-cutter selection of words plugged into a standard outline. It will be specific to you. Each one is individualized, unlike any other, reflecting your personality, your traditions and lifestyle. Where I excel over other Wedding Officiants or Memorial Service Celebrants is taking the time to know your story so that who you are is reflected in your ceremony. As it should be.
As an Ordained, Non-denominational Minister, I respect and honor all beliefs and traditions. I officiate multi-faith weddings, short civil wedding ceremonies, secular ceremonies, same-sex, gay marriages, vow renewals, funerals and memorial services. I serve Seattle and the Greater Puget Sound and will travel beyond King and Snohomish County to deliver services to my clients. Whether your event is an outdoor wedding surrounded by the beauty of nature, a large formal affair full of rituals or a small, intimate gathering, you can be assured my goal is to fill your day with loving memories, smiles sprinkled in, and sometimes laughter.
Utilizing specialized and perfected techniques honed over many years, I take the time to learn about you and thus what elements are important to you. They will provide a backdrop to the atmosphere you desire in your ceremony. It will be as unique and as special as you are.
If you prefer, you can write as much or as little of the ceremony as you like. Or you can just relax and let me guide the process to help reduce your stress. Whatever you choose, my commitment is to provide elements so that your day is lovingly remembered…..and then some.
If you are choosing Wedding Officiant services, I will offer suggestions and ideas for wedding vows, ring exchange and other wedding traditions based on what I’ve learned about you. Or you can create your ceremony from beginning to end. Based on your dream, it can include selected passages, original prose or poems or music that has special meaning to you. Other ideas might include honoring parents, honoring deceased family members or rituals such as musical interludes, a Sand Ceremony or Unity Candle.
With an extensive library of inspirational readings, poems, rituals and music, I have the tools to make your ceremony anything from classic sophistication to spirited laughter with pizazz added for flavor. After all, this is Your Day, Your Event, Your Ceremony. It should be what You Want. If you can imagine it or if you can dream it, Ceremony by Nancy can create it!
I am passionate about what I do and I love it. I enjoy providing my clients with the experience of a ceremony that is truly theirs and one that will be remembered always with love. If that is your desire, then contact me today. For additional information, you can also find me featured on Seattle Wedding Planning Guide and Wedding Wire.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Peace and Love,
