Creating Warm, Intimate Ceremonies in Central New York

       

 

 

 

       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 great to work with, and she is very responsive and thorough. I definitely felt like she paid attention to every last detail and answered every question I had very quickly. I would highly recommend her!
