Creating the wedding celebration of your dreams is my art, my passion.

I am a graduate of the Celebrant USA Foundation & Institute and I'm certified to officiate civil, nondenominational, intercultural and interfaith wedding services, civil unions (in New Jersey) and commitment ceremonies.

I will personalize your ceremony by giving voice to what you feel in your hearts so that it may be enjoyed by others. I offer a flexible style that ranges from simple, honest and down to earth to profound, radiant and spiritual. My experience in constructing meaningful ceremonies will ease your mind and lift your heart.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

I believe that people not presently involved with a traditional religion deserve access to safe and life-affirming ritual methods with which they can feel comfortable. Those in religious or spiritual traditions can benefit by a more conscious understanding of the rituals they utilize. Both can benefit by bringing awareness and intention to the secular rituals that are a regular part of life.

"The ceremony you prepared for us embodied who we are as a couple and a family, and celebrated our love for each other perfectly. You captured us so well, it was as if we’ve known you for a lifetime. Our friends and family are still reeling about the beauty and uniqueness of our ceremony, and how it was so tailored to who we really are." -Kelly and Andre

Examples of my work

I have been a Celebrant since 2005 and have written many, many beautiful and unique rituals into ceremonies. A few stand outs, amongst a vast sea of intercultural ceremonies, include solstice ceremonies on sundials, robots as ring bearers, contemporary loving cup and wine sharing elements, personalized handfasting and vows, water blending ceremonies, sand family unity rituals, underwater love themes, children, families, pets and every single guest have been tied into ceremonies. There are no limits to the rituals, that together, we can bring to life.
