On WeddingWire since 2014

Your wedding ceremony is something I care deeply about. It would be my pleasure to meet or speak with you about your special day.


I enjoy presiding over marriages and helping new couples take their first steps as a family. I work closely with a couple to construct the perfect ceremony for them.

Renewing vows is a meaningful way to look forward while celebrating the past.

Commitment ceremonies are an alternative to a legal ceremony. They are filled with joy and Hope for a bright future. After all, isn't commitment what any ceremony is about?

Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

Getting to know a couple before their wedding date brings warmth to the ceremony. Very available for questions

Do you have a favorite story from your work?

Officiating at a steam punk wedding. It was hard to keep my eyes off the guests, I had never seen such interesting costumes.

How did you decide to get in your line of work?

I have worked with couples for twenty years as a wedding planner, coordinator and manager at Cypress Grove. The next step into officiating was a perfect fit for me.

What do you like most about your job?

The joy and hope I see in couples faces. It is special and new every time.

What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

How long is the ceremony? It can take from 10 to 20 minutes, depending on their choices

What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

It takes preparation and organization to prepare for a ceremony. Every couple is unique and important.

What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?

I have provided same sex couples with commitment ceremonies in the past and now am delighted to being able to provide them with a legal marriage as of January 6th, 2015!

Beautiful ceremony

We found Valerie through her rave reviews on The Knot. We reached out via email and received a response a few minutes later. That same week, we set up a virtual meeting to get to know Valerie a bit and see if she was a good fit for us as our officiant. My wife and I hung up on that call and immediately knew Valerie was the one. She was kind, respectful, and helpful, working with us to perfect our ceremony script and bring our vision to life. Valerie鈥檚 ceremony was beautiful鈥揾er words are emotional, compassionate, and included some humor as we had requested. We had many of our guests approach us during cocktail hour saying how great the officiant was and that the ceremony was beautiful. Valerie is a true professional and it was a pleasure to have her as our officiant.

So fantastic

From the video interview until the time we said I do, I can not speak anymore highly of her. She customized our wedding to fit us. She spoke so we could hear and cracked small jokes that were amazing. She explained the process perfectly so we were prepared. I'm just so so pleased to have hired her to marry us.

Just what we needed!

Valerie was such a calming presence while walking down the aisle, and brought some humor to the ceremony as well! Was 100% on board to customize our ceremony in any way we liked, and was punctual as promised. Would recommend with no reservations!
