You have fallen in love — head over heels in love. The most important day in the life of people in love has arrived … your wedding day. The bride has put thoughtful effort into selecting her bridesmaids, the location of the ceremony, the venue and the menu for the reception, beautiful flowers, a gorgeous cake, and the most glamorous dress she’ll ever wear. The groom has selected his best friends to stand with him, been fitted for a tuxedo that makes him look more handsome than she ever imagined, hired the band and the limousine, planned the honeymoon, and bought the rings. The guest list has been carefully crafted to include their most treasured family members, friends and co-workers.

This occasion calls for the most personal words of love and commitment that express your beliefs, values and spirit of your love. Far beyond the traditional “Dearly Beloved” and “Til Death Us Do Part” lies a ceremony designed as a perfect expression of your unique union – words that reflect the essence of who you are as individuals and as a committed couple.

My experience as celebrant will help guide you through the performance of co-creating your perfect ceremony. I have helped and counseled more than 80 couples in crafting their words of commitment – from the greeting to the vows, the special music and readings, the blessing of the rings and declaration of marriage. My ceremonies are meaningful and memorable. I easily incorporate rituals such as the Unity Candle Ceremony, the Unity Sand Ceremony, and other special components the couple may desire.

I am an ordained, interfaith minister-at-large and a published writer. I make myself available to meet with you, guide you through the components of a wedding ceremony in a stress-free manner, and communicate with you throughout the process. It is my pleasure to attend the wedding rehearsal; I arrive early for the ceremony to lend support to the bride, groom and members of the wedding party — a calming influence on a hectic day to put people at ease.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you plan your special day!
