Helping you create your dream ceremony
We are honored to celebrate your love with you, and we are here to make the process joyous, supportive, and full of ease.
We can travel to your location or join you for a destination wedding.
Are you looking for a Minister or Officiant who will:
Hear and honor all of your dreams, visions, concerns, and wishes with an open heart and mind?
Walk you step-by-step through the process, so you can relax and feel completely supported?
Ensure your ceremony reflects your values, the spirit of your relationship, your unique religious or spiritual views, and the beauty of your love?
Guide you in navigating the full range of feelings leading up to your wedding or commitment ceremony?
Help you find readings, rituals, music, and roles for the special people in your lives? (You will have the full freedom to either come up with these on your own or receive an abundance of suggestions and ideas from us.)
Help you create the exact ambiance you dream of creating? Whether it is whimsical, romantic, light-hearted, formal, sophisticated, fun, enchanting, traditional, alternative, casual, spiritual and/or Earth-based, you get to choose, and we will make it happen!
Make the planning process as fun, ease-filled, and joyful as possible and get enthusiastically excited right along with you?

We love facilitating ceremonies for couples of every gender and religious, cultural, or spiritual background.
This generally occurs the day before (at the rehearsal or dinner) or on the day of the wedding. It gives the wedding party, friends, and/or family members a very unique and special opportunity to express their love and blessings to the couple in a very intimate and special circle.
This is a tremendous gift to the couple, to go into their ceremony feeling the immense love, support, and connection to those they hold most dear.
Lasts 30-60 minutes
(depending on length and location)
After marrying a couple, people often tell us it was the most meaningful ceremony they ever attended.
This is our aim — to help you craft a unique wedding that reflects the beauty of your love and touches the hearts of everyone there, especially yours. It would be a great privilege to help you create your own unforgettable day.
