"Like your marriage, what makes your wedding unique is the two of you. What you want from it, and what you put into it. Whatever your religious or spiritual beliefs, as a Certified Civil Celebrant, I have been trained to help you create the ceremony you've been dreaming of, for a day you'll never forget.

Together we can play your music, tell your story, involve your friends and family, remember your loved ones, recite your favorite passages and poems, help you speak your vows in the language of your heart. It is your ceremony."

~Rev. Emily King
