She  is respectful of all traditions, and yet open to new expressions of the Divine for your sacred event. Her presence and lovely Scottish voice add a special touch.

Preparing for your ceremony: Puja will meet you to answer your questions, explore your spiritual perspectives and the meaning of your ceremony. Upon agreement of practical details such as date, time, location and fee, she'll offer sample ceremonies and suggestions to help you create your ceremony. With Puja as guide, via email and telephone, you will approach your ceremony with every confidence!

Puja says,
"I ask you to allow the deep significance of your commitment to grow as you prepare for your special event. Your ceremony will then reflect your unique heart-felt spiritual perspective and it will be an honor for me to officiate."

Couples say,
"We would like to thank you for bringing us (with such beauty and grace) into this world of marriage. Our favorite part of the day was the ceremony. Every detail about it was so intrinsically beautiful and special and could not have been without you, your guidance, your voice and your spirit. We thank you with every fiber of our beings for entering our lives and helping us to begin our journey." Melissa and James

"Thank you for all your advice and wisdom. Thank you for your grace and spontaneity. Thank you for your genuine kindness for those we love; but most of all thank you for orchestrating the timeless memories we will always cherish." Jim and Pat

"Our ceremony was breathtaking and magical . . . words cannot say enough about your positive energy, focus, love, and professionalism. We are forever indebted to you. We love you!” Lara and Justin
