About New Traditions - Secular Celebrations & Humanist Ceremonies

I will be out of the office from July 12th to July 22nd. I will be checking my email periodically during this time but please be aware that any replies to noncritical messages may be delayed until my return. Thank you.

The Most Personal Ceremony for a Unique Day

In every life, there are certain occasions that call for ceremonies — the arrival of a child, the onset of adulthood, a wedding, the loss of a loved one. Recognition of these milestones mark one's passage through life and gives community and family the opportunity to come together. As our society grows increasingly secular, so grows the need for personal celebrations that accurately reflect the beliefs of the individual. We always place the highest importance on helping you craft a ceremony that is unique and personal to everyone involved. Every celebration starts with the people involved. We start by asking about your history and what you are looking for in the occasion.

Working WITH YOU To Build The Perfect Occasion

At New Traditions, we will work with you to help you build the perfect event from start to finish. Importantly, we never impose my own preferences or any unwanted traditions on your day. We are there to help you, to put you at ease about the plans you are building, and to be an experienced voice you can trust.

Why a Non-Religious or Humanist Ceremony?

The fully personalized ceremony is the choice of the future because every aspect can be built around you, your life story, your passions, and your plans. These events are becoming the most popular of all occasions across Europe, and rapidly growing in number in the United States. In the modern world, many couples and families come from very different traditions or no religious tradition at all.

Freedom, Choice, and A Day For Everyone

A Humanist wedding ceremony completely breaks free of those boundaries and constraints, leaving you complete choice and the ability to fully meet everyone's needs. If you want traditional elements from any culture, We can help you integrate these into your wedding celebration. If not, you can build something totally unique. Either way, we promise we can help you build a wedding day everyone will remember fondly forever.

    Wonderful Experience

    Scott did an excellent job as our officiant. We were skeptical about several officiants early in the process, either due to personality conflicts or a lack of understanding what we wanted. But we experienced a breakthrough when we met Scott, who separated himself in a critical way: He was himself.

    He sold us on his capabilities without being “sales-y” at all. He presented himself as understanding, personable, and informative. He does this full time as a profession, and it shows. He answered all of our questions, and he expertly directed our rehearsal to be as smooth as possible while ensuring that everybody understood their roles and responsibilities. The ceremony went perfectly largely because this direction!
    When the time came to craft a script, he nailed it. It was personalized and heartfelt, as it beautifully captured the mood for the day. All of our family and friends were raving about it, and we teared up more than once. He speaks with a calm but warm tone, and he demonstrated the ability to adjust as necessary. When a helicopter flew overhead in the beginning, he made a great joke to keep things fun.

    Overall, if you’re looking for a wedding officiant to handle your big day, Scott would be an excellent choice!

    Scott made our ceremony amazing and unforgettable!

    I am SO happy we hired Scott for our wedding ceremony. He did such an amazing job! We got the completely personalized ceremony, and I would 100% recommend getting that option!! He did such an amazing job combining both of our stories into one. The guests (and us of course) at our ceremony absolutely LOVED how he told our story as part of the ceremony. So many people came up to us after and told us that it was the BEST and most personable ceremony they had ever been to! He was great to work with, showed up on time, and answered any questions we had. Definitely Recommend! Can't thank him enough!

    The ceremony we didn't know we needed!

    We are SO thankful that we found Scott and chose to have him officiate our wedding ceremony! Scott gave us the ceremony we didn’t know we needed! Many guests commented on our ceremony, saying how they loved hearing our story and learning more about us since we typically don’t share much about our relationship. Scott also recommended writing our own vows, which we were a little nervous about, but I’m so glad for his recommendation. Personalized vows made the ceremony that much more special and our vow books (also suggested by Scott) are something we will treasure forever. If it weren't for finding Scott, I feel we would have had a very typical ceremony but instead we had the most personalized, emotional and memorable ceremony I could have ever imagined.
