About Ceremonies in Nature

I believe every couple deserves to have a ceremony that reflects THEIR beliefs and lifestyle. Most couples who choose my services want something MORE than the ordinary ceremony that would be provided by a judge or magistrate, a church-affiliated minister or even most other Wedding Officiants. Unique optional rituals such as a six-color Past/Present/Future and/or Family Sand-blending into a Unity Vase, Sharing of Drink, Hand-fasting, Ribbons of Hopes & Wishes, Sands of Hopes & Wishes, Native American style Blanket ritual, Earth-based rituals or a Unity Candle-lighting (for indoor ceremonies) add a certain panache to your ceremony that will have your guests commenting positively and provide you with extra special memories. The Sandblending and Ribbons rituals also provide you with a keepsake of the ceremony to take home with you (the Unity Vase or tied Ribbons). I have also officiated at themed weddings such as Renaissance, Halloween, Vampire, Western/Cowboy, Pagan and more. Remember, the ceremony itself sets the tone for the rest of the celebration, so having an open-minded Officiant with whom you feel a connection is very important. I am here to offer as much or as little in the way of ideas, advice, suggestions as you desire for your ceremony! I have had a few couples write their entire script, leaving it to me to practice it out loud enough so that it sounded like my own words; having some theater experience definitely comes in handy sometimes. : )

For outdoor, daytime ceremonies, we also offer a digital photos on DVD option, either with or without editing. Virtually all of the photos from my website and its links of my ceremonies were taken by us. I also have a decorated Wedding Arch available for rental!

While Truth or Consequences, New Mexico and surrounding areas (such as Elephant Butte Lake, Caballo Lake, Cuchillo and Hillsboro) offer some beautiful sites for ceremonies, I often travel to areas many hours away to perform ceremonies. Here are some other locations where I have officiated in New Mexico: White Sands National Monument, City of Rocks, Spencer Theater in Alto, Inn of the Mountain Gods (Ruidoso), The Lodge at Sierra Blanca (Ruidoso), Gila National Forest, Sandia Mountains, Pecos River (Carlsbad), a number of private vacation rentals in Ruidoso, Sacramento Mountains (accessible only by 4-wheel drive!). When living in California, most of my ceremonies were on a beach or ocean bluff, some on golf courses or in back yards; wherever you want your ceremony to be held, I am willing to go there! I encourage involving your minor children (if any) in the ceremony, perhaps with a Family Sand-blending. Let me help make YOUR ceremony the one you AND your guests will remember most fondly. Let's talk! If you call, be SURE to leave a message with your wedding date for me, so if we play phone tag a couple of times, I can at least let you know if I am available on your desired date.

    Talk about someone that goes beyond well over the top with taking care of weddings! We can't say enough good things about Celeste, she made our wedding and honeymoon an absolute blast! - Christina & Eric Kent

    Ceremonies in Nature's reply:

    Thank you SO much, Christina! You and Kent were a true pleasure to work with, and the after-ceremony photo shoot was so much fun! I was just looking through your photos again last week; I really must get some posted online somewhere... : ) Thanks for choosing me/us to officiate and photograph your wedding, and especially for taking the time to write a review. So many people compliment me on my services but just don't ever getting around to writing a review.

    My husband and I got married over the weekend (11/16/13) and Celeste was just the best. Because of the distance between us, we had only spoken on the phone or via e-mail. Celeste was always extremely responsive and was very open to the ceremony we had planned. She was helpful when needed to make the ceremony flow and sound better, but never advocated for any changes that did not enhance the ceremony. She is so easy to work with and on the day of our ceremony, she did such an amazing job and we got many compliments from our guests. Celeste is also a very warm and genuinely caring person. We would highly recommend Celeste!
