You have decided to get married, and I would be honored to officiate an extraordinary, personalized ceremony for you. As you select your wedding officiant, here are the important things you need to know about me: I want to lead the way in creating a ceremony that reflects you, your love, and all the things that you hold most dear in the world. I will provide unlimited consultation and assistance to you in fashioning a breathtaking ceremony and delivering it to perfection. Wedding planning can be stressful, and I want to help you actually enjoy this important part of the process.
Let me tell your love story
As I tell my couples: “You have already done the hard part—you found each other!” So relax…..let me tell your love story as no one ever has. And remember that a beautifully designed, personalized wedding ceremony will set the stage for a joyous celebration afterwards!
I am here to offer advice and ideas concerning all aspects of the ceremony including music, readings, rituals & customs, and staging and to write and deliver the service. I stand ready with a wealth of experience, an enormous library of resources, and terrific ideas so that your wedding is an exquisite reflection of your life, love, and aspirations for the future.
Let me prepare and provide a ceremony that is beyond your wildest dreams!
I have studied art, history, religion and music and am eager to be your “go-to” person in wedding planning. I am an ardent traveler and life-long learner, always on the lookout for wedding inspirations. In addition to my work as a marriage officiant and life-cycle celebrant, I have more than 20 years experience in education, nonprofit management, and event-planning; I am ready to address any question or request, large or small. (And, I am an excellent event trouble-shooter, if need be.) I adore the creative process and look forward to telling your story to those who are most important in your life.
I am a Inter-faith Minister and have respect for all faiths. I have a broad understanding of wedding traditions from various faith and religious traditions, as well as wedding customs from cultures around the world. I have received diplomas from the Celebrant Foundation & Institute, USA, where I now serve as a faculty member. More recently, I completed a two-year seminary program at the One Spirit Learning Alliance.
I live in New York City, but bring with me a hospitality that I attribute to my home, Oklahoma. In addition to this work that I adore, I devote myself to a variety of charities on issues relating to education, children, health, and the arts. Finally, should you select me to officiate your wedding, I will make a donation to a charity of your choice, following the wedding. I can’t think of a better way to honor your new marriage. For me, this is a small way of “giving back” for the privilege of working with you at this milestone in your life, as well as the many gifts I have received over the years.
