Weddings

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

If you’re spiritual but not necessarily religious, and don’t want a secular ceremony, and the traditional vows don’t resonate, or if you’d like to incorporate nature-based aspects to your day…

I would love to create your perfect wedding ceremony. I am 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, as well as NYC, New Jersey, western Massachusetts, and northern Pennsylvania. Wedding ceremonies range from $400-650.

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

Testimonials

One of the best decisions that we made in planning our wedding was asking Mikki to marry us. 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 Mikki and our experience working with her leading up to and on our special day.                                        -Nick and Aubrey 
We love Mikki! My husband & I decided to elope one week before New York shut down. We found Mikki online and reached out. She promptly got back to us, was super easy to communicate with, and she worked with our schedule. When we decided to marry again with family and friends on September 12th she made the trip to us. Both services were nothing short of magical! We enthusiastically recommend her!! - Andrea and Doug
Amazing!!! We LOVED Mikki. She was incredibly easy to work with (we were in NYC and did mostly everything via facetime or email), and did everything that we had asked for the ceremony. She was punctual on the day of, extremely calming, professional, genuine. We highly recommend her. -Helen and Jerel
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
