Welcome!


My mission is to perform your beautiful ceremony in the gorgeous location you've chosen. But planning can be challenging  or stressful, especially from a distance. I'm here to help you with planning and logistics as well as to create a custom ceremony and help with your vows. My having officiated over 80 weddings, been a public speaker for more than 35 years, and being a professor who used to teach wedding planners gives you the confidence of working with someone who's been there before. Making planning easier and achieving the beautiful ceremony in the gorgeous location that's perfect for the two of you and your dream.


My services are perfect for couples who want to elope intimately or those who want a more traditional gathering with family & friends. Maybe you have an independent or Bohemian streak and want a unique outdoor celebration? My goal is to help you realize your dream.


We work together to create your custom ceremony. The wedding or vow renewal is crafted to include the things that are meaningful to you. Embracing your spiritual traditions in the majesty of nature.  


My performance is joyful and heartfelt.
