Services Offered
Zita Christian of Moon River Rituals creates custom wedding ceremonies for couples who are spiritual, not religious. Her ceremonies honor the traditional elements of a wedding ceremony and, at the same time, incorporates rituals that include the parents and/or grandparents, the honor attendants, and special guests who are not members of the wedding party. The love story she writes for each couples shows not only how they fell in love, but why. Not only is the love story the ideal prelude to the moment you take your vows, your love story is also a blueprint for what really looks like. That blueprint is a gift you can give to your guests.

    Zita was able to capture our story and its romance. If you are looking for someone unique who is going to personalize your ceremony, go with Zita. She is thoughtful, very helpful, and she’s an amazing writer of course! She did such a wonderful job on our ceremony and we could not be happier. It will be something we remember for the rest of our lives, and those little touches made all the difference in the world. Our guests all came up to us to tell us how beautiful the ceremony was and how they had never seen something so unique and magical.

    Zita provided me and my husband with a fantastic ceremony. She listened to our requests and created something really personal. Her choice of reading stays with me today and is something I reflect on often. She has a fantastic energy and a friendly demeanour. We both felt like we were in great hands with Zita and we cannot thank her enough.

    Zita is an awesome. Our String Quartet and Harp ensemble had the pleasure of playing a wedding ceremony in Connecticut where she was the Wedding Celebrant. We absolutely loved her ceremony and the couple and all the guests did as well. She is so very professional and awfully nice too. Hope to work together in the future. VSmusic4u
