How many ceremonies have you attended that truly captured the character and spirit of the couple? And, how many of those ceremonies were terribly dull and all you wanted to do was find your way to the reception?


There’s no reason why your ceremony shouldn’t be as meaningful and memorable as your reception, right?


You spend enormous amounts of time planning your wedding - from picking the perfect venue, to deciding on hydrangeas or roses in your arrangement, to the playlist for the DJ, to the wedding party gifts, to the white twinkle lights and sparklers - you plan every little detail… except for the ceremony.


Let’s change that.


Together, we get to the heart and soul of what matters in your ceremony most, and all the reasons why you fell in love. From the first email inquiry to each planning phone call, to the dress rehearsal - I take the time to listen and ask questions that enable me to narrate your love story in a meaningful and unique way. Every ceremony is "couple centered" and range from traditional weddings, interfaith weddings, non-denominational ceremonies, spiritual weddings, LGBTQIA weddings, and vow renewals.
