Your decision to marry is one of the most exciting and important decisions of your life and, although this process can be a bit daunting at times, planning your Big Day together ultimately has the potential to deepen your relationship and bring both of you even closer. I would love to have the opportunity to meet with you to talk about how you envision your perfect wedding day & to discuss ways I can assist in creating a beautiful and deeply meaningful personalized ceremony for you. Your ceremony will be one of the most momentous parts of your wedding day and it should be a reflection of your unique relationship and your beliefs in love, life, family & spirit. Whether you wish to have a spiritual, interfaith, non-religious or religious ceremony, I can create and officiate an exquisite, unique and loving wedding ceremony for you; a ceremony that eloquently expresses the sacred reality of your love. My consultations take approximately 35 minutes to one hour. It will give you the opportunity to get to know a bit about me and my basic philosophical approach to working with couples. Our meeting will also give me the chance to learn about you and your beliefs in spirit, love, life and family and to help you create, or to expand upon an existing "ceremony vision." During this consultation I will explain some of the many ceremonial options along with the various elements in the basic structure of a wedding ceremony. I have an amazing selection of ceremony samples, ideas, blessings & prayers, poems, readings, as well as inner rituals for you to choose from. To name just a few inner rituals: Candle Lighting, Rose, Wine, American Indian rituals, Water/River Ceremony, Sand Ceremony, Tree Planting Ceremony, Honoring the Four Directions, and Hand Fasting. Note also that we can have this consultation in person, on SKYPE, Face Time, Google Hangouts or on the phone. All weddings and couples are special to me and, each ceremony is elegantly designed and officiated from my heart. Each couple has their own special blend of magic and I will seek to discover YOUR special blend of magic and to not only capture your magic in your ceremony, but to convey it back to you and to all of your family and friends when I am officiating your ceremony. I specialize in customizing the following types of ceremonies: spiritual, non-denominational religious, non-religious, interfaith and civil/secular. If you are like many couples and don't really know what type of ceremony would be most fitting for you, I will help you figure this out so that by the time we are finished with your consultation you will have a ceremony vision. I also encourage couples to let me know if they have any personal ideas, ethnic/religious/spiritual traditions, rituals, prayers or readings they wish to include in their ceremony.
