Your Personal Ceremony
Our niche is personalized wedding ceremonies. We officiate many interfaith weddings, hand-fastings, both large and intimate wedding ceremonies. We also do elopement in our lovely home or backyard. We also enjoy waterfall and nature-inspired locations as we are avid hikers.
I love meeting new couples, hearing their stories, working together to find just the right material to create a personalized ceremony that will be appropriate for them, their families and guests. We have a wealth of material to share, but want to nail it down to what will work for each couple. I enjoy assisting to create a deeply satisfying wedding experience, helping to calm any jangled nerves and take care of last minute details. And I enjoy meeting family and friends.
