When my husband and I were married, we had our ceremony and reception at a local historic site. We discovered then that securing a minister willing to perform our service at our chosen venue was
critical to ensuring we would have the wedding we desired.
We were fortunate to find a lovely minister from the Unitarian Church who was willing to travel to our site and perform a ceremony according to our wishes.
An appreciation for the thoughtful and flexible service provided by that minister was the impetus behind my becoming ordained to perform marriages.
My goal as a wedding officiant is to help you create the wedding you have been imagining. I make no judgments regarding past histories or societal conventions, but I do care very much that the weddings I perform are in support of healthy and committed relationships.
For any service I conduct, I look for two things. Those are a comfort with the depth of the relationship and a certainty that the couple has an appreciation for the lifetime commitment being undertaken.
These ideals are the core of my work with all couples. I serve all couples equally including traditional brides and grooms, same sex couples and couples seeking a commitment ceremony because marriage does not match their legal, financial or philosophical needs.
In my mind, humor and joy are a part of any celebration. I pride myself on providing a relaxed and comfortable environment for any ceremony. On the big day, you deserve to be able to focus your attention on your guests and the memories you are creating. I will do my part to make that happen by providing a relaxed and organized service and by giving clear direction to your bridal party during the rehearsal and ceremony.
