Weddings

If you and your beloved are spiritual but not necessarily religious, and don’t want a secular ceremony; if you want to say what you feel and share your story; or if the traditional vows don’t resonate or you want to include nature-based, ancestor-honoring elements toweddinghands your special day:

I would love to be a part of your wedding!

I am a shaman and an ordained minister in the Circle of the Sacred Earth, and I specialize in deeply personal, customized, and sacred weddings and vow renewals for couples of all orientations. As an officiant/celebrant, I serve the Hudson Valley and Tri-state areas.

Would you like to schedule a 15-minute conversation to see if I’m your celebrant?

Wedding ceremonies start at $400, with additional services –like couple’s healing sessions, pre-wedding celebrations (alternatives to bachelor/bachelorette parties), and ancestor ceremonies– also available.

If you live outside the Hudson Valley, I can also write a ceremony for you, to be performed by the officiant of your choice, for $250.

One of the best decisions that we made in planning our wedding was asking Mikki to marry us. In creating a very personal ceremony, she developed such a spot-on sense of who we are and the important highlights of our relationship, and crafted it in such a way that guests at our wedding said that they felt included. Having her involved in one of the most sacred moments of our life was a positive force that set the tone for the rest of the night. It was incredible. Our parents were very moved by the ceremony, and many guests told us it was their favorite marriage ceremony that they had ever attended. We can’t say enough good things about Shaman Mikki and our experience working with her leading up to and on our special day. -Nick and Aubrey

We cannot begin to thank you enough for helping make our day so incredibly special. Everything from preparing for the big day, the level of communication, the warmth of our vows, up to the reception would not have been possible, or as wonderful without you. You are so patient and the ceremony you helped prepare for us was better than we ever could have imagined. We are truly blessed to have had you marry us, and send us off on our life together. – Jeffrey and Rachel

The first time we met with Mikki to plan our wedding, given her sweet nature, we knew that she was the right person to officiate the ceremony. Our personalities meshed and, although it was a serious rite for us, we experienced great joy and laughter during the ceremony. Mikki also attended our reception and honored us with the pre-meal blessing. We hope that Mikki will be join us for many of our future life events. – Lori and Cary

Your words set the perfect tone for a perfect day. Thank you so much for making our wedding day a day we’ll never forget!   – Phil and Rebecca
