Celebrations & Rituals

Weddings

It is my joy to work with a couple in creating a personal wedding ceremony that fits their unique story of love and commitment.

As celebrant, I “hold the space,” officiating in a ceremony that creates meaning and memories for everyone present.

As a non-denominational minister, celebrant, and officiant, my practice rests in the love we all share—the love that brings life and being into the world.

Families are created in the presence of vows of love and life-long commitment. I support marriage equality, and I respect the beliefs and faith traditions of all my clients, whether religious, spiritual or secular.

I reside near Port Townsend, Washington and am happy to help with ceremonies in the Olympic Peninsula and Puget Sound region.

 

Life-Affirming Celebrations and Rituals

Any of life’s transitions are felt more deeply when celebrated with ritual and ceremony.

  • Are you welcoming a new member to your family or community?
  • Celebrating a special birthday or anniversary?
  • Moving to a new home, or putting in a new garden?
  • Celebrating the life of a loved one who has died?

I am honored to help with blessings and celebrations for special occasions at all stages of life.

Fees and Process

Each ceremony and ritual is unique. My fees depend on the time dedicated to your ceremony, while respecting your budget. The cost of a basic, standard ceremony is usually about $100-$200. The cost of a customized ceremony we develop together depends on a variety of factors. I will meet with you at a no-obligation interview to discuss how we might bring your vision to life and to determine costs.

Sharing symbolic food during a ceremony brings body and spirit into the moment.

I am committed to delivering value for every celebration, from simple backyard ceremonies to formal events in elegant venues. Depending on your needs, services may include:

  • Listening to your personal story and crafting a unique ceremony for you.
  • Unlimited emails and phone calls to make sure we get it right.
  • Information on venues in or near Port Townsend.
  • A rehearsal at your venue (if appropriate).
  • Acting as celebrant and officiant for your ceremony.
  • A keepsake copy of your ceremony.
  • For weddings, I can provide information on obtaining a marriage license in Washington State, and I will file completed documents with the county clerk.

For a no-obligation initial interview to talk about your vision and determine fees, please contact me. I love each new collaboration that honors and celebrates life transitions, and I look forward to hearing from you.
