You and your partner are about to commit the remainder of your days to each other. I would be honored to assist you. Marriage and commitment can be celebrated so many ways from the more basic, secular vows that can happen anywhere to more elaborate vows with music, readings, testimonials or hand-fasting ceremonies.
Life is a beautiful evolving process.
Let me use my creative training and life experience to help make your ceremony unique to you both.
Breathe, it is your time to celebrate and be celebrated!
It is my goal to take care of the ceremony so the couple is able to be present and ground for each other.

Types of Services
Weddings/Vow Renewal/Commitment Ceremony
Outside Natural Setting
Same-sex/LGBT Friendly

Packages range from $185-$385
All initial consultations are complimentary. I want to ensure that I am the right fit for you. In our consultation we will define your expectations, needs and requirements. We will look at details including date, location, who else might be involved.

Included in all wedding packages:

  • Meetings: As needed after initial consultation to review script, vows and/or share ideas.
  • My time: Writing/composing your individualized ceremony scrip, vows, reading (approx. 5-8 hours)
  • Take Away: Wedding packet of information that includes vow and reading samples.
  • No Charge: Emails, calls or text as we plan your special day.

Couples will complete a questionnaire, each separately, so I can create a ceremony and include their vows where the couple does not have to remember or read anything. In this format couples are able to relax and be present throughout the ceremony.

    Wonderful, special day!

    Beth Ann was wonderful to work with. She put a vow renewal together that we felt fit perfect for us! She performed a very nice ceremony. Beth Ann made our special day wonderful and memorable!

    So accommodating!

    We love Beth Ann! She met with us in person at first to get to know us a little better and figure out what kind of ceremony we wanted. Then she created a google document with the parts of the ceremony sectioned out so we could see what we needed to include and also things that weren't really necessary and we could choose to include them or not, which was great because our ceremony was unique. We had a traditional viking Expression of Intent and then we had a traditional hand fasting for our vows and then we said our own vows. Everyone loved the ceremony! Beth Ann came to the rehearsal to walk through the entire process with us and made sure we would be able to get all the steps right. She was so professional, kind, accommodating and so peaceful. We loved her down to earth nature. We wouldn't have been happy with any other officiant.

    Professional, flexible, and overall amazing!

    Beth Ann was great! She gave a lot of her time for everything from our initial consultation, to the wedding (and everything in between). She was totally open to providing her own materials/writings that matched our needs, or letting us use our any of our own material. She handled all of our paperwork before, during, and after the wedding. Beth Ann was an awesome, calming presence on our wedding day. If any of us were to get stressed out, she would offer an impromptu therapy session to help calm us down. Thank you, Beth Ann!
