Your Ceremony is the Heart of Your WeddinG

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MYSELF - I absolutely love my work! It is such a joy to stand with happy couples as they make the leap from being single to married.  As a Life-Cycle Celebrant® and Wedding Officiant, I specialize in creating modern and meaningful ceremonies for the Santa Barbara area.  Telling love stories is my business and I would love to tell yours!

I create custom wedding ceremonies for Santa Barbara elopements as well as large event weddings. Whether you live locally or are traveling from another part of the country or world, I would love to be a part of making your wedding celebration memorable.

I serve all couples who wish to marry. I celebrate love and the many forms it takes in a lifetime. I embrace diversity, creativity and create ceremonies for couples who want non-religious, non-denominational, and interfaith ceremonies. I also work with couples who consider themselves spiritual but not religious.

We will collaborate to create a modern, meaningful and personalized ceremony which reflects your style, traditions, and love. The ceremonies I craft are designed  and delivered so that you and your guests will remember the sweetness of the moment long after your ceremony has passed.

HOW I WILL SUPPORT YOU - My professional background has enabled me to fine tune the art of listening, writing, and being in the moment. Using a personalized questionnaire, as well as communicating through emails and phone calls, I take time to get to know you and your dream for your wedding ceremony. I use the information you share with me to craft your ceremony, just as you envision it. I will write your Love Story and research readings, songs, and any other elements you may want to include in your ceremony.  

Your ceremony may be short and sweet or longer to include songs, readings, and other elements taken from a variety of traditions. Examples include the Hand Blessing and HandFasting Ceremony, Sand Ceremony, Wine and Love Letter Ceremony, and The Parent Vows to Children Ceremony. There are many ceremony elements available to you and I help guide you through the process of choosing which elements best reflect your style and vision.

As a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant®, I am trained through the Celebrant Foundation and Institute in the art of crafting and officiating ceremonies. I have access to a wealth of information and resources and work with you to create a ceremony that represents your needs, beliefs, and personality. Your ceremony will be beautifully written and delivered. It will honor the moment in which you and your guests have gathered to celebrate your love.

I am available to attend and coordinate your ceremony rehearsal. I work with other wedding professionals and help tend to any ceremony management details in an effort to ensure your wedding is flawless!   

During your ceremony, I will help you relax into the moment. Often just the simple reminder to ‘breath’ is all it takes! My goal is to help you be fully present with each other and experience the love of your gathered guests, as well.

HOW DO WE BEGIN - I'd love to hop on a call or meet over coffee to hear more about your vision and describe specific details, including the Three Ceremony Styles I offer.

I look forward to hearing from you and creating your ceremony exactly as you envision it!
