SERVICES 

*Consultation time to meet with you in person (or by phone or Skype) to plan and offer guidance for creating your ceremony.

*A respectful process for you to discuss your desires, vision, and the details for your ceremony

*Facilitation of the wedding rehearsal

*A great resource list of vows and words for your ring exchange

FEES

My fees are determined by many factors, including the type of ceremony, time involved in meeting and planning the wedding ceremony, whether or not there is a rehearsal, and any travel/lodging expenses. We discuss this during your complimentary telephone consultation.

Spiritual wellness is an important aspect of wellness and my role as an officiant is sacred to me. I am an official, legal in-47-states wedding officiant. I was ordained in 2004 through the non-denominational Universal Life Church.

you are not meant to wait for it,
you are meant to generate it.

You might want to know that the first wedding ceremony I officiated was in 2004 in Seattle. I was struck with the profound and deep energy of love that was palpably present right in front of me, in the hearts of the couple I was privileged to marry. It has been an honor to officiate wedding ceremonies for couples coast to coast—from Charlottesville, VA to the San Juan Islands in Washington State—and from the mountains of California to the shores of Lake Champlain in Vermont.

If reading this sounds like you would like me to be the person to be the wedding officiant at your ceremony, please email me to schedule a complimentary telephone consultation so we can see if it’s a good match for all involved.
