Your Personal Ceremony
"We have gotten so many amazing responses from our friends and family about how beautifully you performed the ceremony. Everyone just cannot stop talking about how touching it was, and how it was perfectly 'us.'" from Erin & Shannon, a couple we married. We specialize in custom-created wedding ceremonies personalized for the bride and groom. We guide you, the couple, in creating your own unique ritual, providing you with inspiring material from which to choose, drawn from the great spiritual traditions, including Native American, Jewish, Celtic, Hindu and Christian Together we create a ceremony that honors both you and your families. We help you find the words and rites that connect your souls! Currently we are offering covid-style elopements and very small ceremonies in our own backyard and covered porch. You can still be married with some small personal touches. A private ceremony can be just as memorable as the bigger ones of yesteryear - hey, wearing masks and still kissing is quite memorable! Very reasonably priced. Just give a call!

We recently worked with Joanie of Your Personal Ceremony. She was very personable and easy to work with. She was very attentive to the bride and Groom and made sure that the day was about them. She made the ceremony personal and interesting without taking away from the reverence that should also be part of the service. I would definitely recommend her to Brides and Grooms.
