Custom Ceremonies
for all Occasions
Ceremony and ritual allow us to absorb things on many different levels at once. They set aside the concrete and linear and move us into symbolism, mythology, poetry, prose and music. They invite us to experience and embrace the fullness of life.

Ceremony Becomes Powerful
When It Reflects the Truth of the Heart
When planning a ceremony, we may have a sense of what it should be like; a concept, a tone, a feel, a flavor. We have ideas about what we want but not the specifics. What we need is for someone to help take our ideas and turn them into a living, breathing ceremony; one which is truly reflective of who we are and what we value; which brings together ritual, symbolism, poetry and story in just the right combination. My role is to be your translator and your interpreter; turning your vision, your wishes, your dreams, and desires into a fully realized, meaningful and beautiful ceremony.
Your Day. Your Story. Your Way.
Introductions: My foremost goal is to be certain you will receive exactly what you’re looking for during this time. We will begin our relationship with an initial interview to see if we are a good fit for each other.
Getting to Know You: I will send you a thorough questionnaire for you to fill out that contains many personal questions relevant to what you are looking to create. This will help to get a feel for you as a person or as a couple. I will often call you to follow up with greater detail.
Written Draft: Once we have discussed all the information and your wants and needs at length, I will then write out a complete ceremony draft from start to finish, interweaving readings or poetry that fit, and any other pieces that we’ve talk about in the prior steps.
Approval: Together we will edit and make changes to your ceremony until we get it exactly as you want it. In the end you will have approved every word. To hear your story spoken aloud and told back to you is powerful, affirming and fitting for the day that marks this life passage.
