About Waypoint Ceremonies

What do you hear when you envision your wedding ceremony?

Engaging in this multi-sensory imaginal work is a great place to start as you begin counting the unique ways you might wish to say I Do aloud to your beloved other. In wedding day terms, there’s nothing more exhilarating or empowering than the lived experience of witnessing every story element, ritual and gesture magically unfold beyond your highest expectations. Such a result transfigures your special day into something infinitely more extraordinary.

I’m in the business of crafting extraordinary moments that live lively and linger a long ever after the big day itself. I would be delighted to co-create your own unforgettable ceremony – be it your engagement, wedding, recommitment or elopement.

Customizing a breakfast cereal unity ritual at the altar to honor the many thousand, “Good Morning, Sweetie’s” ahead, or jumping a colorful kitchen broom in solidarity of the mandatory fun your shared householder chores promise you, are but two of countless weird and wacky ritual examples of how you can infuse fun and meaning into your ceremony.

As a certified Life-Cycle Celebrant® and non-denominational officiant, I am all about helping you show and tell your day in Yours Truly fashion. I am based in the Seattle/Puget Sound area and yes, I will most happily travel to your mountain trail, desert oasis or ocean beach wedding locale throughout Western Washington and beyond.

Born from decades of event planning, copywriting and marketing consulting experience, my approach is highly collaborative and discerning. It begins and ends with you. You share your story, your wildest wedding day wishes, and your willingness to own your day; and you also lend your final editing touches and approval.

In turn, I’ll bring my wide-open ears and heart, intuitive sensibilities, lyrical wordsmithing, uncommonly creative mind, and veritable toolkit of wedding whisperer resources and experience. Together, we’ll co-craft a heartfelt, authentic and one-of-kind ceremony that celebrates and honors your individual journeys, how you have refined and redefined love, and what you most value as a couple.

Take the time to check out my website and if it looks like we might be a fit, let’s get together to chat date and details. I lean in listening with a long ear and a silly smile to each and every love story I meet!

    Danna Saved The Day

    Danna saved the day for our wedding ceremony. Just days before our wedding our officiant informed us that she had a medical issue and could not perform the ceremony. She referred us to Danna, which was a blessing. Not only did Danna arrange her schedule to accommodate us, but she took the ceremony to the next level, providing organization, themes, and extra rituals that made the day truly memorable

    Thanks, Janetta....you two sure got hitched just right! I still want to try my hand at crafting a pineapple-themed cake, inspired by your lovely wedding cake.

    Fantastic wedding officiant

    Danna was just amazing. We got in touch with her just a couple of weeks before the wedding and she made room for us in her schedule, answering our all questions. At first we wanted something very simple but she convinced us that a more personalized ceremony is a more beautiful one and she was absolutely right. A lot of our guests said they were very impressed with the tailored ceremony.
    She's also a true professional, very organized, coming in a bit earlier to check the place out and take care of some of the little details that you may not realize.

    After the ceremony, she sent the documents in a timely manner and also gave us a beautiful keepsake copy of the ceremony and vows. We're very thankful for having her as a master of ceremony on our special day.

    Waypoint Ceremonies's reply:

    Thank you, Mihai - you two did the micro wedding thing just perfectly, right down to ordering the light dusting of snow falling on the cedars outside like confetti! ;)

    It was truly a lovely day and a pleasure to serve as your celebrant!

    I had the pleasure of working with Danna at a wedding this past weekend and was extremely impressed with both her style and presentation. She made everything flow very smoothly during the ceremony even with the Bride having lost her voice and Mom having to read the Bride's vows! Danna was very professional, very caring and created a wonderful atmosphere for everyone involved. I especially appreciated her desire to have good audio capture for the couple through my video system and the way she worked with all the other vendors at the ceremony. I would not hesitate to recommend Danna to any couple looking for an Officiant for their wedding! John Fox SunRidge Media, Inc. Wedding Videos

    Danna did a Beautiful ceremony for a Bride and Groom that I worked with. She was very organized and I could tell the ceremony was well planned and she had taken a lot of time to really get to know the couple and their love story. I would recommend Danna to anyone!
