At the location of your choice: home and backyard, in a park, mountain top, alongside a river, on a bridge. Need ideas on where to have your ceremony? I have many great suggestions in New York and Connecticut.
My ceremony process begins with a free consultation on the phone, Facetime, or ZOOM. This is an opportunity for us to get to know a little about each other. Together we will figure out what type of ceremony (spiritual, secular, non-religious, religious or simply a simple civil ceremony) is most relevant to you as a couple and most fitting for your beliefs.

A BIT ABOUT ME
I embrace ALL people, all faiths, races, traditions, and orientations. I was one of the forerunners in LBGTQ marriage in 2009 when LBGTQ marriage was first legalized in Connecticut in 2008.
I believe in the fundamental beauty and wisdom innate in all regardless of race, religion, and sexual orientation. My focus is on unity and love and all that unites us as human beings, not what superficially appears to separate us

Many of my couples come from other parts of the globe which includes many couples from Scotland, England, Ireland, Wales, Australia, The Bahamas who come to be married or renew their vows in New York City.
