Congratulations! You have made the joyful choice to join your life with another. With the person who shares your joys, provides you respite, and from whom you draw strength when life's difficult moments arise….the person who loves and accepts you unconditionally.
It is your special day; the beginning of your new life together. Whether traditional, unconventional, small or large your wedding ceremony is an opportunity for you and your guests to experience a ceremony that reflects and says who you are both as a couple and as individuals.
You may wish to write your own vows and design your ceremony, or to select from a variety of vows, poems, and readings to weave into your wedding tapestry or you may elect for me to create a ceremony designed especially for you.
Your marriage may include the blending of families and family traditions. Children, religious customs and beliefs, as well as family traditions can be incorporated into the ceremony, celebrating the formation of a family within a larger family.
For couples who, due to life circumstances, want to declare their love and joining of lives together without legal marriage documents, a Commitment Ceremony can be held.
After our initial meeting if you decide to choose me to officiate at your wedding, I would be honored. My commitment is to not only be a resource and guide but also to provide you support and counsel as you move through the process of beginning your life together. Follow up discussions and plans can be via telephone, e-mail, fax, or in person whichever fits best into your lifestyle. If there is a rehearsal, we can schedule my attendance and I am happy to assist as necessary.
Please feel free to contact me for additional information, or to answer questions you may have.
I am a non-denominational minister licensed to perform weddings in Oregon and Washington.
Blessings of the Divine Creator to you and your beloved!
