Living The SacredInterfaith & Non-Denominational Ceremonies"You are like two trees overlooking a river. Destiny placed you side by side."This is one of the most important days of your lives! It is my privilege to share it with you. I design ceremonies that are meaningful and inspiring and create a ceremony that expresses the depth of your love and the commitment you are making to each other. As a Multi-faith minister, I bring a spiritual depth to your ceremony. The couples I work with are as diverse as our world is. Many are from different faith traditions and cultures or just want to include diverse rituals in their ceremony. Most couples want to find a common spiritual foundation on which to celebrate this joyous life passage. Some are simply looking for a unique, creative way to express the love for, and commitment to, one another. I partner with you to create a very personal and meaningful ceremony. Most of the ceremonies I officiate use little of the language, music, or visual symbols of a "traditional" wedding. I also work with same-gender couples and am honored to support this special union. In all instances, I work together with you to craft a simple and beautiful ceremony that blends your vision with my expertise.Since your wedding is one of the most important days in your life, it is important that you feel comfortable with me so I offer an in- person consultation to meet, connect and begin designing your wedding ceremony.Sample CeremonyWELCOME & OPENING a statement about love and commitment.READINGS affirm your love and commitment.QUESTION OF INTENT a promise that you will create a loving partnership based on your values and beliefs.VOWS are your promises to each other.RINGS are blessed by me and exchanged as symbols of your promises,BLESSING is asking for support of your commitments.ANNOUNCEMENT is a summary and affirmation of your love and ceremony.CLOSING WORDS are a statement of gratitude.
