The love you have nurtured together is yours alone and it has brought you to commit your lives to one another. Your ceremony should reflect your values, your ideals, and all the little moments you have shared. Together let us craft a ceremony that will inspire you and your guests.
I founded Gather in Hope to serve. I have performed weddings in Florida since 2013 and I deeply enjoy working with couples. I offer weddings, commitments, vow renewals, anniversaries, and blendings of families along with ceremonies for other occasions.
I am currently only accepting private ceremonies with dates through September 30, 2020. Please consider postponing your full wedding until fall for the safety of your guests and help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
As I celebrate humanity, I do not accept contracts for ceremonies held at venues that self-reference as "plantation." The glorification and whitewashing of chattel slavery will no longer be unchallenged in the wedding industry. I believe that couples desire that justice and human dignity be part of their celebrations, and as more consider the context and consequences of available venues, they will make loving choices.

vow renewal on 12/31/2020
Lily did a fabulous job with our vow renewal ceremony. She spent more than an hour gathering information during a conference call with us. The ceremony itself just what we asked for -simple yet memorable. She incorporated much of what we spoke about into the ceremony. We both were brought to tears throughout it. We highly recommend Lily for that special moment of your own. Cindy & MichaelSent on 02/17/2021

We had the most beautiful ceremony, met twice before, and was able to incorporate everything we talked about. It was a unique experience that was tailored to our lives.Sent on 07/26/2021

A pleasure to work with!
We had a great experience with Lily, first as our ceremony writer then as our officiant as plans changed (as they do in 2020). We appreciated her flexibility in performing the ceremony and attending both our rehearsal and the ceremony itself. Lily asked questions while writing our ceremony that really got to the heart of our relationship and love for one another. During wedding planning in which it is easy to get caught up in the details of the event itself, we both loved that experience and hearing each other's responses centered around our love for one another, our relationship and our hopes and dreams as a couple. Lily was very professional throughout the process and we would definitely recommend her for both ceremony writing and officiating!Sent on 10/22/2020
