Taffy specializes in crafting unique rituals for every occasion, and is honored to create ceremonies designed to perfectly suit each couple.
Taffy Dugan - Wedding and Handfasting Officiant performs two different styles of weddings, and can blend them in various ways if the couple wishes. The first is a non-denominational ceremony, and the second is a hand-fasting ceremony. Handfasting, also known as "tying the knot," is an ancient custom from the British Isles, and was also practiced by some Germanic and Norse tribes. It involves the couple clasping hands as ribbons or braided strings are wrapped around their wrists as a symbol of unity. Whatever your ideal ceremony looks like, Taffy will work with you to bring it to life.

Taffy Exceeded Our Expectations
We cannot recommend Taffy's services highly enough. Besides being a beautiful presence and a lovely person, she is an incredible officiant. We will remember that day for a lifetime. Thank you, Taffy!
A Magical Experience; January 2023
We Are Starting Our 2023 Year Off Right! :D
From the first moment we met for our coffee/consultation, she listened closely to the story of our 15 Year Relationship, and talked about ways she could include Our Love Story to help personalize Our Ceremony.
And then we just kept talking! She is very easy to talk to and just makes the whole process a comfortable one.
From how and when we met in 2008 to getting Engaged while performing "If I Were A Carpenter" by Johnny Cash & June Carter Song for a Lip Sync Battle at his Company Holiday Party in 2016.
And then onto the October 2017 Fires that caused us to postpone Our Original Wedding Plans; to my Father in Law and our Best Friend/Officiant both passing away unexpectedly the year prior and everything in-between.
Taffy was kind & patient and she brought several creative ideas, and adepth of knowledge to the whole ceremony that we wouldn't have had otherwise.
My now Husband 🥰 is a Rustic/Non-Religious Man and I am Witchy/Spiritualistic Woman and our guests ranged in varying degrees of Faith. Taffy took all our ideas and needs and created a Ceremony that moved everyone regardless of their Faith with its emotion. All our friends & family loved her.
My Husband & I cannot recommend Taffy's services enough. She is a beautiful Spirit and a Wonderful Person.
We Will Remember This Day Always.
Thank You & Blessed Be;
From Mr & Mrs. Melton.
Nothing short of magical
