  • Life Events

  • Rites of Passage

  • Special Occasions

Why Work With A Celebrant:

Once the planning is complete, all you do is participate and enjoy the meaningful experience you have co-created with your celebrant.

You can trust the celebrant to say the right things at the right time, ensuring that memorable moments endure.

You can rely on the celebrant to help you every step of the way, even when resourcing additional services to make your event just how you want it.

Working With A Celebrant Is For You If:

  • You want to celebrate, honor or empower a significant moment happening in your life or in the lives of your those you cherish.
  • You want a celebrant to create the right atmosphere and opportunity for you to say the things that mean the most to you.
  • You want a celebrant to say the things you want to be said.
  • You want to create memorable moments of the important passages in life.
  • You recognize that life is a deep and sacred mystery and that ceremony puts us in touch with that depth and mystery

What To Expect:

This service is not a superficial treatment of special passages or birthdays or accomplishments.

Instead, this service helps us tap into the the greater meaning and belonging that is true about life.

The intention of this service is to connect you more deeply and personally to what is significant in your relationship to your self and others.

These services are designed to celebrate, heal, comfort, connect and empower all those involved.

Because we live in a multi-dimensional world that delight our senses, celebrant services incorporate symbols, metaphors and natural elements in the creation of ceremony.   This aspect of ceremony makes your experience unique and customized.

How It Works:

You and I will have an initial complimentary conversation about what it is you want to celebrate, commemorate or empower.

We will discuss your vision for the experience and I will guide us to a place where we have a mutual understanding of what you want and what is possible.

I will then present you with a review of our discussion, a proposed way to proceed and a quote for my services.

Once we are in agreement, I will design the ceremony, complete with any materials needed or other optional services.

I can refer you to other services you may be interested in, like photography, catering, venue location, etc.

The Details:

My base fee for weddings, celebrations of life, baby blessings, house blessings, driver’s license pledge parties, coming of age ceremonies, and retirement ceremonies is $400.  This fee may increase by $100, if there is travel involved or multiple day involvement.  All fees with be presented up front before the work begins.

A deposit may be made upon agreement and full payment for the services are requested 7 days prior to the event.

Expenses for materials agreed upon and used are the responsibility of the client.

I am happy to take cash, check or credit card.
