Let's talk about your plans for your special day, whether it’s a wedding, commitment ceremony, handfasting, or vow renewal.
“What a blessing it has been having you enter our lives during this auspicious, once in a lifetime occasion...You truly are a Goddess of Light. You helped us to create the most beautiful, perfect, and profound ceremony that was unique to us. The entirety of our experience working with you has been nothing short of Divine. Your presence warms our hearts and awakens our spirits. Thank you Carolyn for gifting us your energy and guiding us through this wild process. Thank you for being authentic and helping us express our love the way we envisioned. Thank you for being our rock, grounding and embracing us when emotions were high. We will forever hold you sacred to us as a spiritual teacher. We love you.”
-Koia and Thomas
I love weddings! (And they love me!)
I see weddings as the most powerful—and perhaps only—collective ritual we have in secular society. They can be portals to new lives, stronger community, and clearer values and life direction. The couples I work with typically are looking for a non-religious, inclusive experience that makes everyone—from religiously observant cousins to atheists—feel welcome and comfortable. I’ve performed heterosexual and same-sex weddings, pagan weddings, and I've co-officiated with rabbis and ministers.
I meet with you and your beloved to learn about your hopes, fears, and ideas and then provide ceremony drafts. We stay in touch throughout the planning process to ensure that your ceremony meets your needs and that you feel spiritually and emotionally supported. I will facilitate a rehearsal with your loved ones and engage with them at the rehearsal dinner. I’m solid and present on the day of your wedding: someone you lean on so that you can enjoy every moment of your special day.
