The wedding ceremony is a transformational rite of passage and the most important element of the couple's special day. I work closely with each couple to create a meaningful and personalized ceremony that best reflects who they are, what they believe and their hopes and dreams for their marriage. As an Interfaith Minister, I help each couple envision and craft their desired ceremony, whether it is spiritual, secular or religious. After determining the tone of the ceremony; (intimate, ceremonial, minimal, formal, sacred, warm, solemn, lighthearted) or any combination, the couple then selects the rituals and elements that best reflect their love and commitment and their family, cultural and/or religious traditions and together we create a memorable ceremony,
LGBTQ Individuals and Families are Warmly Welcome.
I am available to serve the Eastern NC area: Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill, Clayton/Fuquay-Varina, Wilson/Rocky Mount, Emerald Isle and the Crystal Coast, Wilmington and Beaches.
I offer a complimentary consultation to couples who are in the process of selecting their Wedding Officiant. Please call 919-649-6953 to set up your appointment and then I will send you a helpful questionnaire, "Creating a Sacred and Meaningful Wedding Ceremony" to get you thinking about your desires for your ceremony.
It would be an honor and a privilege to officiate your wedding. My mission: 1) To listen closely to both partners about what they do and do not want in their ceremony. 2) To honor spiritual, religious and non-religious backgrounds and traditions, as well as cultural traditions in all the elements. 3) To craft a personal, sacred and meaningful ceremony that each couple will remember fondly for years to come. 4) To plan all logistics and craft a seamless Order of Service,
Rates for Officiant Services vary depending on a number of factors which can be determined during the initial consultation.
Please Note: As a general rule, it is very important to secure the services of your chosen wedding officiant as soon as possible.
