    Helped us create OUR ceremony

    Can't say enough good things about Stacey. We went into the experience not really knowing what kind of ceremony we wanted. Stacey met with us over Zoom a couple of times to talk things through, and she helped us create a ceremony that would be meaningful to us. She wrote a beautiful script that seamlessly incorporated the readings and rituals we wanted to include. The ceremony went perfectly, and family and guests told us how much they loved it. We would absolutely recommend working with Stacey!

    Stacey did an excellent job officiating my wedding! She lets you customize your ceremony however you want it and has lots of material to choose from as well. After the wedding, the guests were all complimenting how well she did and asking for the readings. It couldn't have turned out more perfect!

I've married over 300 couples since the first in 2014, and truly no two weddings are the same.

My focus has always been helping atheist/agnostic and LGBTQ couples because it's part of who I am. Most importantly, however, I started doing this to help people make their wedding a reflection of themselves, doing what they want, saying words that are meaningful to them, tradition be darned. I do like to challenge social norms, even if only in subtle ways.

In my spare time I do a lot of gardening, growing herbs and veggies in my front yard, hanging out with my dog, philosophising about life and the universe, outdoorsy stuff, and just a variety of random projects. Laughter and positive thinking play a big role in my life!

We had the pleasure of working with Stacey recently and were impressed with the way she spoke about the couple on a personal level. It was clear that she had taken the time to get to know them and created a wedding ceremony that fit their needs and interests. It made it meaningful for the couple and their guests. She was clearly very experienced and a delight to work with throughout the event.
