Joshua's goal in creating the ceremony is to focus on the couple and their bond. This includes their relationship to each other as well as to their families, their friends and the world in general. Joshua gets to know each couple through personal meetings in order to work with them and craft the most meaningful celebration possible.
Each ceremony is personalized with elements that can come from tradition interpreted through a humanist lens or are completely original, created through a process of investigation into the feelings and thoughts of the couple. The tone of the ceremony is also bespoke, representing the atmosphere that feels most comfortable to the couple. It can be laid-back, formal, humorous, romantic or resonate with a combination of many things.

We were so happy with Joshua as our officiant! From beginning to end, Joshua was helpful, responsive, and accommodating. We loved him right away. We were looking for someone open-minded and kind who shared similar values with us and would be friendly and warm to everyone. Joshua is exactly that! We had two meetings with him, one of which he talked to each of us individually about how we felt about each other, and then wrote a beautiful and extremely personalized ceremony for us, which he sent us to look over several months before the wedding. We of course didn't need to even make any changes because it was perfect already, and the whole process was super stress-free. At the ceremony, Joshua was professional, smiled often, and spoke clearly, and even managed to pull off the impossible task of holding a microphone while holding his script while tying our hands together for the handfasting part of our ceremony! I would highly recommend Joshua for anyone looking for an inclusive, personalized ceremony. Thanks so much Josh :)

My husband and I had planned on having my uncle (pastor) marry us, but we both decided we wanted a ceremony that reflected our personal beliefs. Joshua was able to do exactly that and MORE! He included our children and all of our wedding guests into our ceremony and we received so much positive feedback. At one point during our vows, he held our crabby 1 year old :)
