Your wedding ceremony should be a unique reflection of who you are. Working collaboratively, we will create a ceremony that is personal, using the great variety of resources from a multiplicity of cultural sources. Readings from literature that are meaningful to you, rituals and symbols that mirror the love and commitment you feel for each other, honoring family and friends -- these are some of the elements I can incorporate into your ceremony. The centerpiece will be telling your story as a couple.
I will meet with you and learn who you are and use this knowledge to craft a ceremony that will be memorable for you and for your guests. I will also be there to work with the wedding party at a rehearsal. Finally, after your day, you will receive a keepsake copy of your ceremony.
For those of your who wonder why Celebrants charge higher fees than other officiants, my colleague, Lois Heckman, explains it all very clearly: http://blogs.thepoconos.com/weddings/2018/10/20/when-the-officiant-is-an-after-thought/?fbclid=IwAR3ABtTQzyv2wHZL63MhvJ96CUb1L6oJu9VkTnQpMFLiX16h8w4gqHxWj7c
Modest Weddings and Micro-Weddings
Many couples prefer a wedding smaller in scope that is focused in the ceremony itself. The celebration is no less joyous, yet in these ceremonies we make the words of union the centerpiece of the event. In the case of Micro-Weddings, the event may include only a few people with a small celebration, with the focus on the union in words and rituals meaningful to the couple.
Even if your wedding is simple, your ceremony can be deeply meaningful and memorable.
Ceremonies for Mystics
As a student of Shamanism, I revel in collaborating with couples who want to incorporate elements from a variety of mystical and ancient traditions.
