The perfect ceremony—for you.

How many people do you know who are accustomed to forgettable wedding ceremonies? Something to get through just so they can make it to the fun part. It could be more! What would it be like to have the ceremony itself be a truly memorable part of your beautiful day? Just as beautiful as the smiles on everyone’s faces, just as moving as the intimate moments with loved ones, just as fun and joyful as the dancing; just as perfect as you want your whole wedding experience to be. With my services, you can expect all of the above. My ceremonies are truly one-of-a-kind, and have been consistently lauded by the couples with whom I’ve had the privilege of working.

You are not like anyone else, and your ceremony should not be either. I take the time to get to know you and your story, and then, on the big day, I make you and your love the focus as I regale your loved ones with all that led up to the present, epic moment.


The Journey

During my first date with you, I get to see you and your partner together, and first and foremost, make sure that we are a match. Then, we discuss your vision of the ceremony, so that you’ll walk away from the meeting with a draft of what your ceremony will look like. I answer any questions you might have, and ask you ones you’ve never thought of before. But that’s okay, because that’s why you have me!

  • Unlimited texts, calls, emails, carrier pigeon messages, and meetings. Planning a wedding is no easy task. As your officiant, I’ll be available every step of the way, to ease your mind and make sure your ceremony will go off without a hitch. So, don’t hesitate to reach out. I’m here for you.

  • Completely personalized. I spend hours handcrafting a ceremony that is just for you. No canned, cheesy stuff about marriage and love that has nothing to do with who you are. You and your guests will be basking in the glow of your love story, which will set the tone for the rest of the day as they celebrate all that is you. I am often asked by guests how I know the couple because they automatically assume that I am the couple’s good friend. No other ceremony I do—ever—will be like yours.

  • Premarital coaching. If you’re interested in grounding yourselves and making sure you’re both on the same page before the big day, I offer premarital coaching! A safe space that you and your partner create with me, where you can talk about the hard stuff, while I facilitate and mediate as appropriate. Even when love, chemistry, attraction, and all of the intangibles that brought you and your partner together are present, there are real, concrete skills you can hone to set yourselves up for a successful marriage. You know this. So, get in touch to get to work.


the wedding day

On your wedding day, you will be standing next to your glorious partner with whom you’ve been through so much together, as you finally marry them. Besides you two, the only other person who gets the honor of standing up there at the front with you, is your officiant. That person will be talking to you, talking to your loved ones, standing in your ceremony pictures, conducting you, your honor attendants and your guests on what to do and when, and holding the space in the entire room as they carry out the ceremonial act of marrying you. With me, you will be in good hands. (Read: I got you!)

You and your love should be the focus. All the other stuff is there to celebrate you and your love, and that’s exactly what my ceremonies and I do.

  • Experience, talent, skill, and passion. As a seasoned, natural storyteller with a smoooooth voice like butta, who has told for more than 100 audiences, my delivery will capture and hold the attention of your guests, and amplify your love to let it speak for itself. I put you and your love front and center, and then hold it up to let it shine as I present it in the best way possible.

  • A calm presence effectively holding the space. I am calm, collected, confident, and present, putting you at ease and grounding you so you can be immersed in one of the biggest moments of your life, with the love of your life. My commanding presence will lovingly hold the space so that all of your guests can focus on celebrating you.

  • Professionalism and preparation. I spend hours handcrafting a ceremony that is just for you. I have an acute attention to detail, and I want your once-in-a-lifetime day to live up to your expectations. I have been performing ceremonies since 2010, and I will bring all of my expertise to our relationship.
