I'll be available to help you choose the perfect spot and sort out the details, like photographers, marriage license and local information.


Your custom ceremony celebrates the two of you. How and where you want.

Written to your spiritual and personal preferences, the ceremony will capture the essence of your love and unify your relationship. Write your own vows, see examples, have me help or write them for you.  

Want a special element? Hand binding, unity knot, sand ceremony, or tree planting. We can also create something unique that's perfect for the two of you.
