On WeddingWire since 2020

Congratulations on your engagement! As a Celebrant, I help you achieve a creative vision for your wedding ceremony. I love helping capture and craft the sweetness of the unfolding of a couple’s public commitment. Whether simple, secular, spiritual, inspirational, or religious, it becomes a moment to cherish forever. I consider words as poetry, capable of lifting the moments of your nuptials, however embellished you wish them to be. I consider my job to be that of support, inspiration, and incorporating vows and traditions to meet you where you wish to be when you exchange your vows. I help you enjoy planning the time leading up to your day, and provide a unique opportunity for an economical and coordinated wedding.

About me and my services

~ I’m a JP welcoming all loving couples, based in North Branford, Connecticut and will travel anywhere in the state as well as New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

~ As an ordained minister I offer sacred rituals to honor and fit any belief systems, traditions, cultures or faiths.

~ For those unsure of where to begin or feel overwhelmed as to where to start, I created an online Ceremony Component Form. This helps to narrow down choices and appealing aspects of a ceremony. This enables an overview of possibilities I am available to help you decide on.

~ I encourage you to take as much time as you need to communicate, with a commitment to being responsive during the journey up until your wedding day to ensure you are absolutely delighted with your ceremony.

~ I work closely and help coordinate with other vendors to help ensure you are as relaxed and present as possible, to the joy of your wedding day. I can also recommend other vendors whose work I’ve admired.

~ I love to hear of your unique love story, helping you to brainstorm, or as I like to say, heartstorm, and tune in to capture the essence of what is most precious about your togetherness.

~ As a seasoned musician who has sung at hundreds of weddings, I offer heartfelt music before, during and/or after your ceremony, in order to add an extra level of personalization and emotional impact to your day. Whether you decide to include music or not, celebrating your wedding is done with warmth and caring engagement. I can share song ideas that have heightened many a heartfelt ceremony.

~ I am willing to adjust my fee to help you fit your budget. A 50% deposit holds your date, with the balance due one month before your wedding date.

~ I’d love for you to consider a free consultation in person, Zoom, FaceTime or on the phone.

~ You can visit my website to learn more about me, hear samples of my wedding music, see videos, and see more pictures and testimonials

It was extremely helpful in finding a wonderful Justice of the Peace

Debra Lynn Alt did a wonderful job in officiating our wedding and in helping us writing our vows, my husband and I could not have had a more perfect ceremony thanks to her. We would highly recommend her as she did a wonderful job, and she made our wedding day absolutely beautiful.

Magical Moments

Debra went above and beyond for my husband and I. She hiked in the woods to marry us in our favorite grove. She had a form for us to help us figure out a ceremony that was personal and sacred. If you’re looking for someone who’s able to offer something a little different, she’s your person! Shamanic prayers, opening a sacred space, an Irish blessing. She incorporated music into the ceremony that was so beautiful it brought us both to tears. I am so thankful she was the one who married us! She’s organized and responds to emails, letting us know what to expect and what to bring. She’s professional but more important to me, she’s not setting a stage for a performance. Rather she made it a spiritual experience. I felt it in my soul! Go with Love, Light, & Music. And May your wedding be as blessed as ours!
