Perfect for Your Outdoor Wedding



My services include officiating your ceremony and the option for helping you with destination planning. Perfect for couples who have a bohemian streak and want a celebration in nature that reflects their unique style. I love what I do.

We work together to create your custom ceremony. The ceremony embraces your spiritual traditions and connects your relationship to nature. My performance is joyful and heartfelt.


Celebrate in the location that's perfect for the two of you. The Redwoods, on a beach or a river bank, while floating, on top of a mountain, or ...  Your chosen spot and time. I can help you identify the place that's perfect for you!


Planning a destination wedding can be a challenge. Concierge service is like having a planning assistant for your destination. The service is designed to help with your decision making, reducing uncertainty and stress.

Includes information and local insights on locations, travel, logistics, photographers, marriage license, and more. You'll also have access to Exclusive Resources for planning. I'll be your on-call planning assistant.

Thank you for considering my services.
