A beautiful ceremony draws on the theme of love to create a memorable wedding. Through a series of interview questions by email and a meeting (call or in person, we discuss your ceremony and your vision of your wedding. Then, I create the ceremony with the goal of capturing your personality as a couple.

You have the opportunity to review the ceremony, make edits and request changes. I meet with you in person or by phone and correspond by email as much as needed until the ceremony is written and finalized.

We also plan your entrance, the entrance for parents/family and seating arrangements for the first rows. We discuss where to include music and I love creating unique and fun unity ceremonies for you.

I attend your rehearsal or pre-rehearse with you to ensure that we all are prepared for your ceremony. This helps you to feel more confident on your wedding day and your wedding party will know more of the details of their roles.

On your wedding day, I arrive at your wedding venue and spend a few moments checking in with you. The final step is a beautiful wedding ceremony.  (30 miles travel included)

Afterward, I file the paperwork with the appropriate county and send you a USPS tracking number so you know when it arrives at the recorder and you can place your order for a certificate.

A beautiful ceremony draws on the theme of love to create a memorable wedding. Having no guests or just a few guests doesn’t mean your wedding ceremony is any less important. It is very much focused on the two of you. Through a series of questions by email along with a meeting (call or in person), we will talk about your ceremony and your vision of your wedding. Then, I create the ceremony with the goal of capturing your personality as a couple.

You have the opportunity to review the ceremony, make edits and request changes. I meet with you in person or by phone and correspond by email as much as needed until the ceremony is written and finalized.

We talk through the plan for how you will enter and other logistics of the ceremony, but do not have a formal rehearsal.
