Meaningful, confident, grounding.

Bethany & Dan

It’s your day. Let it reflect who you are as a couple.

As an Officiant, I bring a sense of calm, humor, and warmth to the wedding ceremony, which creates a meaningful and unique experience for you and your guests. 

My Approach:

I approach the ceremony from a secular/non-denominational place. I truly consider your union as the foundation for the wedding ceremony. The ceremony can be as traditional or untraditional as you’d like. Together, we will discuss mood and style, the rituals you want and potential inclusion of family and friends. We can then add in any cultural or religious traditions, if you have them. We will work largely through email to finalize the ceremony.

I am an active listener and I pride myself in creating ceremonies couples adore, even before they know exactly what they want.

I draw upon my theatre and public speaking experience and can easily help plan the look, sound and feel of the ceremony. If a highly choreographed procession is what you want, I can help you. If you need assistance with music or reading selections, just say the word. Or if you want to get married on a secluded hotel rooftop and want a ceremony to match, let’s do it!

I will also be your fiercest advocate leading up to and on the day of your wedding. I am based in NYC, however I am more than happy to travel wherever your wedding may be.

Rates start at $550 for simple & intimate elopements. Fees are determined by your wedding date, guest count and location. Shoot me an email or give me a call, so we can discuss how I can help you create a vision for your ceremony and execute it with ease and grace.

 

Thank you so much for everything!  Saturday was truly the best day ever and working with you was absolutely wonderful!  We received numerous compliments from our guests on your ceremony and how connected you were with us.  We also LOVED the part about our guests ‘unplugging’ for a bit during the ceremony, I think it made it that much more special.  

Thanks again!                                               — Eleanora & Jason, Oneonta NY, 2018

Ceremony Consultation

It has long been a trend for couples to ask friends to officiate their weddings. I get it. It’s cost effective and potentially more personal. Heck, I even became an officiant to marry a friend. While it’s an exciting challenge for a friend or a family member, it can be daunting. Let me help your “friend officiant” capitalize on their personality to create a great ceremony. I will also guide them on speaking with confidence and handling all of the legal and administrative issues with ease. If you (or any couple you know) may be going that route, feel free to contact me!
