About Custom Ceremonies

The best wedding ceremony your guests have ever attended - and you will remember it forever! Emily VanLaeys provides meaningful ceremonies for those who recognize the importance of the words and rituals that will bind you together for a lifetime of shared experiences. Emily specializes in nonreligious, interfaith, spiritual, intercultural, and civil ceremonies. As a graduate of the Celebrant Foundation and Institute USA, she has been trained in the art and orchestration of ceremony.

Emily will create a heartfelt wedding ceremony that reflects your beliefs and values, and your unique love story. Emily's individualized ceremonies include not just your choices of readings and vows, but a script written just for you, based on your feelings and stories about each other. The bride and groom have the final say about every word.

Emily's services include an interview, unlimited consultation during the ceremony planning and writing process, the rehearsal or rehearsal instructions, and a keepsake ceremony. She will officiate at the ceremony with warmth and joy. Fees are variable depending on the complexity of the ceremony and the distance of the venue from Oneonta.

    Emily was wonderful! She provided us with so many options and so much information for our ceremony so that we could have it just the way we wanted. Communication leading up to the day was very easy, and although she wasn't able to attend our rehearsal she sent along detailed instructions. She was very professional on the day of the wedding and managed to keep things moving for us on a very hot day without it feeling rushed.
