I am sad to say that I am currently not accepting any new clients right now due to the unpredictability of COVID-19. I am not comfortable performing weddings in the near future, but I am also not comfortable signing contracts with couples for weddings later on until we know more about the virus and work on a vaccine and/or treatments. Thank you for understanding.
I am currently serving the local COLUMBIA area. However, I am open to negotiating a travel fee for locations outside of Columbia.
I am a wedding officiant and ceremony designer who specializes in entirely custom ceremonies that reflect the couple both as individuals and as a unit, and I have been performing weddings since the spring of 2015. I love to explore the couple's journey in my ceremonies, and I hope to make each ceremony one of the most special moments of your lives. If custom isn't your style, I am happy to perform anything you provide or ask me to find for you. I am also happy to perform ceremonies of any religion, or a secular (non-religious) ceremony if you prefer.
In addition to performing weddings, I am also a high school English teacher. I hold a B.A. in English and an M.A. in Composition and Rhetoric. My experience in teaching, as well as my experiences speaking at national and international conferences, has allowed me to further my public speaking abilities and enhance my speaking presence.My specialization in composition has taught me a variety of techniques for writing, which I now apply to my custom ceremonies.
My favorite part of working as a couple's officiant is going the extra mile to make sure their ceremony is exactly what they want, whether that be rewrites of the ceremony script, research on alternative readings or unity ceremonies, and so on. I believe that a wedding officiant should strike the perfect balance of personal and professional. I am a vendor hired for your wedding, but I would also like to get to know you as more than just a client. Through discussions via email, phone, and in person, I hope to be able to learn more about you as a couple in order to make your wedding ceremony experience easy and enjoyable.
