Bay Area, CA. 2010 BRIDE'S CHOICE AWARD RECIPIENT!
I perform civil (nonreligious), religious, nondenominational, interfaith and multicultural wedding ceremonies tailored to your personal style or beliefs. Ceremonies are available in English and Spanish.
I will help you design a ceremony that reflects your individual backgrounds and your common interests into a symbolic ceremony that represents who you are as a couple. Some issues we’ll consider are if you prefer a religious or nonreligious ceremony, your cultural backgrounds, and if you would like to include a symbolic ceremony (such as the Love Letter Ceremony, Hand Ceremony, Honor Your Mother Ceremony, etc.). We will also discuss if you wish to have other family members participate (such as children from bride or groom or other family members), or if you wish to honor the memory of loved ones during the ceremony. The ceremony will be as long or short and as simple or complex as you choose.
I honor and respect all beliefs and traditions, whether religious or secular. I never try to promote my personal beliefs during the ceremony or during our meetings together. My goal is to provide a ceremony that completely reflects who you are. During our meetings, I will focus on getting to know you and understanding how to make your ceremony special to you.
After our initial meeting, I will be available to answer any wedding related questions and offer advice for your wedding plans, such as budget-saving suggestions and tips to make things easier for you.
Always remembering that this is about your day, the entire ceremony will be approved by you ahead of time. This will avoid any awkward surprises and will ensure that the ceremony will accurately reflect your style and beliefs.

Thank you for considering me as your officiant. Please contact me to set up a meeting.
