Full Circle Ceremonies specializes in custom ceremonies, often performed outside or in unique venue settings. Officiant and owner Rebecca Schillenback is a recorded Quaker minister, Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant, and has been the sole proprietor of Full Circle Ceremonies since 2014. Rebecca is based in Ithaca, but she provides her services for ceremonies throughout the Finger Lakes region and Central New York. Rebecca works with couples to craft one-of-a-kind ceremonies expressive of each couple's unique values, beliefs, and intentions.
Full Circle Ceremonies provides flexible wedding officiant services to fit different styles and budgets—including elopements, non-religious ceremonies, interfaith ceremonies, civil unions, single religion ceremonies, and "short and sweet" ceremonies—as well as the option to write and consult on a ceremony performed by another officiant. Rebecca is also available for ceremony rehearsals and vow renewals.

Rebecca was amazing to work with. We changed our date to a year sooner than we originally planned and she was more than willing and able to work with us. When we first met with her, we knew right away. She has a true passion for what she does and you can hear it in her voice. And the custom ceremony she wrote for us was 100% perfect. Everyone was amazed at her talent and words. They went out of their way to compliment her and say what a wonderfully perfect ceremony it was. She nailed it. We couldn't be happier! If you want a unique custom ceremony, Rebecca is your lady!!Sent on 08/31/2019
Full Circle Ceremony's reply:Oh Rachel, thanks so much! It was such a privilege to work with you. I feel lucky to have met you and Chadd, and to see his face as you walked toward him down the aisle. The bagpipes gave me chills! You are a beautiful couple! :-)
