Events that evoke our emotions, that bring us to that soft place inside our hearts...that make us appreciate the miracle of love and the preciousness of life...these events ARE the big moments of our lives and worthy of thoughtfully crafted ceremonies that are completely authentic to the participants. That is my goal as a Celebrant...to create the perfect ceremony for you and your sweetheart.
I've been told that I am a gifted writer with a storytellers instinct. I work with you to co-create a unique ceremony that reflects your beliefs and values. People find that I am compassionate, caring, humorous and an engaging public speaker who will present your ceremony in a way that is sure to leave a heart print on all who are privileged to bear witness to your event.
While I specialize in customized ceremonies, I am also available for quick elopement ceremonies that will have a slightly customized ceremony that I adapt from a pre-scripted ceremony. Please vist my website for more information on pricing. The Customized Wedding Ceremony is created from personal interviews and collaboration with you. We will arrange a time to meet in your home or other comfortable place of your choosing so we can become acquainted. This is a no cost, no obligation meeting, and after we meet, you can decide if I am the right Celebrant for you. We may also discuss this on the phone.
After hearing about your plans; the size, location, plans for rehearsal, and the tone, I will give you a cost, and if you wish to proceed, I'll give you an agreement to sign and will ask for the deposit.
We then will begin the interview process...which is typically fun and enjoyable. We will discuss what you want from the ceremony, the style you envision, the concerns you have and if there is a particular theme. From this conversation, I will take your reflections and notes from our talk and begin to write your ceremony. I will write the full ceremony which you will have plenty of time to review. I will edit the ceremony to your satisfaction. You will approve every word...you will know what I'm going to say and when...and you will feel good about the ceremony being authentic to your personality and desires.
On the day of your ceremony, I will arrive early and will check in with you and coordinate with those who will be assisting in the ceremony. Please feel free to write, call or text me so we can begin the process of creating your ceremony.
