If you want a secular but meaningful ceremony; if you’re spiritual but not religious; if 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 wedding ceremony.
I am an ordained animist minister specializing in deeply personal 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. Other locations are possible– let’s talk!
Wedding ceremonies start at $650 (mileage, tolls, rehearsal, and extra services additional). This fee is payable in two installments and includes creating and performing your custom ceremony and returning your license.
Email to set up a conversation and see if we’re a good fit.
In addition to wedding ceremonies, I also offer:
Officiant Coaching: Receive solid support to make your friend or family member’s day spectacular. Hourly virtual mentorship sessions covering everything from practical logistics to writing the ceremony to dealing with jitters.
Couples’ Healing Sessions: Guidance and energy work for wedding-related anxiety or to release ties to old relationships. Get clear and calm as you step into your new life together.
Bridal party yoga: Bring a relaxing and energizing retreat experience to your wedding weekend. Mindful grounding and guided meditation will help everyone arrive with good energy.
Despacho Ceremonies: Beautiful alternatives or additions to engagement parties or rehearsal dinners that are appropriate for families or can be celebrated more privately. Create a sacred space to give thanks and receive the blessings of Nature and those who came before.
Light coordination for elopements and micro-weddings: for couples in the lower Hudson Valley area. As your officiant, I can also make recommendations for travel, dining, locations, and preferred vendors.
