About Rites of Celebration

Personalized ceremonies to create joyful memories for the events of your life!

Your wedding deserves a unique, joyful ceremony that celebrates your love and the people near and dear to you. Let's work together to create the ceremony you will always remember.  With over 14 years of officiate experience, I provide  calming direction to creating your special time along with proven performance. 

Unlike some other officiants I know, I do not give you a straight out of the book service.  Telling a couple what they have to say in vows is not acceptable to me.  It's your relationship, and your special day - let's make that memorable together.

My clients often tell me that they have no idea how to start on planning the ceremony. That's my job and I love doing it. I walk you through options, answer questions and handle any concerns.  I'm very flexible on format and love to include special touches.  You have put hours into planning the special theme and decorations.  You've found the perfect clothes and now it is time to plan your perfect ceremony.

It doesn't have to be complicated or long to be a special ceremony.  This should be a wonderful, magical day for you. Let me help make that come true.  My price includes a face-to-face getting to know you and planning meeting. 

My presence at a rehearsal does required a small additional fee.  Ceremonies requiring travel outside the Phoenix area do require travel expenses.

I work with several services like Wedding Wire so my up-to-date reviews are found on my website and other updates are on my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ritesofcelebration/  

Rites of Celebration has also been named a top officiant in the Phoenix area for multiple years by Thumbtack users

I find great joy in officiating weddings, hand fastings or vow renewals for all couples.  Please let me know if I can be a part of yours!

I'd love to perform your ceremony, please contact me today. It is my pleasure to help make your ceremony relaxed and special.

I got married at Villa Siena on February 25, 2018. Pamela was our officiant. She was truly amazing. She personalized out ceremony to match are wants and needs. She gave us a consultation and then did our rehearsal as well. Pamela I will never ever forget this and the joy you brought us during our wedding. My wedding guest are still talking about how great our ceremony was! Thank you!
