The Process of Working Together

The process of working with me to develop your ceremony can be characterized as one of mutual respect, support, professionalism and fun!


If I have the honor of officiating at your ceremony, you can expect that I will:

  • Meet you for a no-cost, no-obligation interview.
  • Learn as much as I can about you through a relaxed, fun and collaborative process.
  • Only celebrate one ceremony per day - yours!
  • Help you find the words, rituals, readings and music that truly resonate with your heart.
  • Carefully craft your custom, one-of-a-kind ceremony.
  • Consult with you until your ceremony is exactly the way YOU want it to be.
  • Rehearse the ceremony with you at the venue of your choice.
  • Give you my complete attention for your entire ceremony.
  • Arrive at least one hour before the ceremony begins.
  • Officiate your ceremony with great heart, love and professionalism.
  • Gift you with a keepsake copy of your ceremony to treasure in the years to come.
  • Complete and file your legal paperwork with the county of origin.
  • And finally, send you a thank-you note, because I LOVE celebrating love - especially yours!
