Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! I am a Marriage Celebrant authorized by Fairfax County Circuit Court to celebrate wedding ceremonies in Virginia. Additionally, I'm licensed in Washington, DC and have reciprocal standing in Maryland. With 22 years of experience, I possess the skills to assist you design a ceremony that is cross-cultural, spiritual, Christian, interfaith or secular. Every couple I meet, every ceremony I celebrate, is unique and memorable. I encourage couples who may not want a religious ceremony but a spiritual ceremony to embrace and include cultural traditions within their ceremony. From the volume of materials I've collected over the years, I will guide you as together we craft the ceremony that tells your story and expresses your values.

Wedding celebrations occur in just about every venue imaginable, from parks and backyards to churches and ballrooms, hospital chapels and historic properties. Also, consider a theme wedding...these of a few of the themed weddings I had the pleasure of being part of....Jimmy Buffet, renaissance and luau weddings. Regardless of where, when, themed or not, I will work with you to ensure your wedding is about you!

In April 1992 I conducted my first wedding and to date I've presided at more than 2000 weddings. I hold a M.Ed. in family counseling from the University of Maryland and I'm a trained Prepare/Enrich counselor. Additionally, I am a Virginia Certified Mediator, Conflict Coach, Stephen Minister, and a Distinguished Toastmaster, the highest individual recognition bestowed by Toastmasters International.

To stay current with wedding matters, I am a member of the Association of Wedding Professionals. The meetings are planned to allow members the opportunity to network, and participate in an education component presented by a subject matter expert. Occasionally I am asked "what happens if something happens to you?" Through networking I have many resources available to me should I need a replacement due to an illness or personal emergency.

Finding the right officiant for my wedding was probably the most difficult part of the planning process as I believe it is one of the most personal and important choices you will make for your wedding. My wedding was even more difficult from this perspective because my husband and I wanted to demonstrate our respect for each other's respective religious backgrounds in our wedding and so had two different ceremonies - a Hindu ceremony followed by a Christian ceremony. It was important in our Christian ceremony to strike the right balance between tradition and openness. It was such a blessing to find Leora, who took the time to understand our relationship and was willing to take part in our multicultural celebration. It meant a lot to me and family that we could work with Leora to mold our perfect ceremony...which I think really made our day special and memorable not only to us, but to our guests as well. I would definitely recommend Leora as a wedding officiant.
