As a Unitarian Universalist minister serving a congregation in Seattle's south suburbs, I am available to officiate rites of passage for individuals, couples, and families of any faith in Western Washington.
For me being present with people during life's most significant times is one of the greatest privileges of being a minister.
I have many years of experience officiating ceremonies for people from many different faith traditions as well as for people who do not identify with any particular faith tradition. (I often work with people who describe themselves as "spiritual but not religious.")
I enjoy helping couples plan and create wedding ceremonies that are personal, meaningful, and memorable.
When you choose me to officiate your wedding ceremony, I will be available to meet with you as many times as is necessary before your wedding to help you plan and create a ceremony that reflects your beliefs, your values, and your wishes. I will be available to answer questions and to offer advice until the day of your wedding.
I will also be available to lead a rehearsal for you and the other participants in your ceremony.
Finally, I will officiate your ceremony at the location of your choice.
My fee for officiating a wedding is $300 or $350, depending on whether you would like me to lead a rehearsal for you.
For couples who desire it, I also offer pre-marital counseling using the Prepare/Enrich program, a program which helps couples better understand their relationship and improve their communication and problem-solving skills.
To check my availability or to further explore the possibility of having me officiate a ceremony for you, please contact me.
