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 Officiant. As your Wedding Officiant or Memorial Celebrant, my goal is learning about you so that your voice shines through in the ceremony. Whatever your desires, I listen without preconceived notions. The end result will be a ceremony that is personalized and one which celebrates love. What sets me apart from other Wedding Officiants or Memorial Service Celebrants is the ceremonies I design. They aren’t off-the-shelf or a cookie-cutter selection of words plugged into a standard outline. It will be specific to you. If you choose a personalized ceremony, it will be unlike any other, reflecting your personality, traditions and lifestyle. Where I excel over other Wedding Officiants or Memorial Service Celebrants is taking the time to know your story. As it should be.

Your Wedding Officiant

Your Wedding Officiant

As an ordained, non-denominational Minister, I respect and honor all beliefs and traditions. I officiate weddings that are multi-faith, civil ceremonies, secular weddings, same gender gay marriages, vow renewals, religious and non-religious funerals and memorial services. I’ll gladly travel to accommodate the location of your wedding or memorial service. Whether your ceremony is an outdoor setting surrounded by the beauty of nature or a large formal affair full of rituals or an intimate gathering, my hope is to fill your day with loving memories, smiles sprinkled in, and sometimes laughter.

As a Life Cycle Celebrant, I utilize specialized and perfected techniques honed over many years. I take the time to learn what elements are important to you in your ceremony. The information gained will provide a backdrop to the atmosphere desired in your wedding ceremony or memorial service. It will be as unique as the individuals.

As your Wedding Officiant, you can relax and let me take care of the wedding ceremony or, if you prefer, you can write your own vows.  Whatever you choose, my commitment is to provide you with a day that is lovingly remembered…..and then some.

Part of my services as your Wedding Officiant or Memorial Service Celebrant for a personalized ceremony includes offering suggestions and ideas. For a wedding those might be wedding vows, ring exchange and other traditions based on what I’ve learned about you. For a Memorial Service, I offer suggestions on locations, rituals you might want to include in the ceremony and suggestions on the flow of the ceremony. Or you can create your ceremony from beginning to end. Your dream ceremony might include selected passages, original prose, poems or music that has special meaning. Other rituals might include honoring parents, a Sand Ceremony or a Unity Candle.
