All The Things Ceremonies

All The Things Ceremonies

I am a wedding officiant and specialize in LGBTQIA weddings and elopements. I like to do video chats first and get to know the couple to see if we are a good fit for each other. I do non religious ceremonies and spiritual ceremonies. I customize all of my ceremonies to fit the need of my couple and tell their love story. My ceremonies can include hand-fasting ceremonies, tree planting ceremonies, anniversary box ceremonies and more.

I also offer a grounding ceremony before the wedding that includes: Sound healing, Reiki, intention setting & energy clearing
