Congratulations! Thank you for choosing to take the time to get to know me better. A wedding is a collaborative event. All pieces are important to create your special.day. I see my role, as not only the person to deliver your chosen message to your guests, but also to help set the tone of the day. Whether you want a quiet and peaceful energy or one with more noise and flair, I am here to support your vision.
Since I was a child I have had an interest in spirituality. In my quest for spiritual learning, I entered a seminary program and was ordained a minister in a non-traditional Christian church when I was 20 years old. I later performed my first wedding in 1990. Since then I have helped couples in Washington state, California and now Oregon, join together in marriage.
My interest in exploring my spirituality has included learning about a variety of perspectives and practices, including meditation. There are many forms of meditation. The style that I practice has helped me to reduce stress, feel better and be happier. Because these meditative, relaxation techniques helped me so much, I wanted to share them with others. I took a teaching program and became a certified meditation teacher in 1993. If you are interested, I will gladly share these meditative tools with you to help you more fully enjoy your wedding day and the planning process leading up to it. Sometimes marrying your best friend includes some anxiety, stress or feeling of overwhelm a long the way. Through meditation and other methods of support, I can help lessen it for you both.
In my work I honor all faiths and beliefs. I perform secular, as well as spiritual ceremonies. In addition to legal marriage, I perform renewal of vows and other rituals, such as baptisms that signify important steps in life.
I offer an initial complimentary meeting to further get to know each other. I would love to meet you and talk about how I might best support your partnership and help you to have a joyous and memorable special day.
You’re getting married! Create your day the way you want it. I’ll make it legal.
