Lead Your Love Life
6 Reviews | Berkeley, CA
I work directly with you to create a personalized wedding ceremony. During this process we will get to know each other well. I have deep respect for the intimate role you’re asking of me on your special day. On the day of your wedding, I will manage the ceremony details, so you can relax and enjoy each moment with your loved ones. We’ll start with an extensive questionnaire, which will help us dive into the planning process with ease. The questions will get you thinking about the meaning of your union, and help isolate the elements you’d like to include in your ceremony. These questions will also provide me with insight into your partnership which I will weave into your script. Next, we’ll use planning meetings with a toolkit of frameworks/templates to build the ceremony structure. For example, ceremony elements might include: telling your love story, community vows, story sharing, a ring warming, collectively moment of silence, etc. Designing your wedding ceremony becomes even more personal when we include your community. I have created a short intake form for you to share with your closest friends and family. Should you choose to share it, their thoughts about your strengths as a couple will be woven into your ceremony. In addition, I offer a series of helpful tools to support you in writing vows, choosing ceremony readings/songs, etc. My price listed is based on this All Inclusive Package, which includes: Couples Discovery Questionnaire to get you asking meaningful questions and support us in building your ceremony script Two 60-minute planning sessions in which I will guide you step by step through the process of designing your ceremony A survey link to collect insight from your community to make your ceremony more personalized and intimate A 1-hour pre-marital coaching session Custom ceremony design Ceremony officiation Community Circle to connect your loved ones before your ceremony Signing your marriage license and mailing it to the state Optional Add-Ons: Rehearsal day before or day of Package of three, 2-hour pre-marital coaching sessions Community Bonding Facilitation A bundle of 2-hour premarital coaching sessions I service weddings in both Northern California and around Boulder, Colorado.

Lauren Snead Wedding Officiant
60 Reviews | Sacramento, CA
Hi, my name is Lauren and I officiate weddings for sentimental, spontaneous couples who are excited to explore their love! I am also reinventing the concept of “Wedding Officiant.” After attending many traditional wedding ceremonies, I realized that couples were missing a huge emotional opportunity to create an original, heartfelt wedding ceremony that reflected the essence of who they are and brought their communities closer together. Given my sentimental, spontaneous nature, I decided to fill that void and become the Wedding Officiant who would help couples truly explore, express and celebrate their love! Here's a little more about me: I've been officiating wedding ceremonies for over 10 years, I'm a certified life coach and I'm also someone with strong beliefs. For example, I believe that all work days should include a mandatory 20 minute dance party, that everyone should fall in love with someone of the same gender at least once in their lives and that we should say something GREAT about our partner every night before bed - especially when we don't want to! Speaking of partners, my wife Katy and I have been married since 2012 and while we are originally from Maine, we are LOVING life here in sunny California! Now I'd love to learn more about you!!!

Make it Official! Congrats! You and your partner have decided to get married! As you plan all the details of the big day, you may be wondering who will guide the ceremony so it lives up to your expectations. You may be sorting through religious and cultural traditions, trying to knit together a ceremony that feels authentic. You may be asking each other, how do we make this official? You've come to the right place! I can create a custom ceremony; one that is uniquely tailored to authentically represent your union. I'll be your guide and co-creator, as we weave together ancient and contemporary, traditional and unconventional. On the big day, I can solemnize the union with style, grace, and warmth. About Rachael PASSION + TALENT I officiated my first wedding in July of 2016, for 2 dear friends—Dan and Melissa. I enjoyed working alongside them to create a ceremony that reflected their relationship. I enjoyed the ceremony and received such encouraging feedback, I knew I’d love to offer this service to others. This creative and spiritual endeavor combines my love of public speaking, strong writing skills, and my abiding faith in the divine and the conviction that we are sacred. DIVERSITY + THE DIVINE I was raised in--and still practice--the Protestant Christian tradition. I believe, however, there are many paths to the divine. I am ready to accept the presence or absence of faithI am comfortable in any cultural or religious tradition, including atheism, agnosticism, and secular humanism. I can and get along with just about anyone. I grew up in the midwest, spent time out east, and now live here in San Francisco. I am a bi-racial and well-traveled woman, eager to learn about the traditions that matter to you and your partner. ORDINATION I am ordained by American Marriage Ministries, a non-profit, interfaith and non-denominational church. American Marriage Ministries believes that the choice of wedding officiant belongs to the couple. Read more about this ordination here. A LITTLE ABOUT ME I grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan—a small city in southwest Michigan. I attended the University of Michigan for undergrad, directed a faith-based non-profit in Kalamazoo, and then headed to pursue a graduate degree in City Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. After a few years in Long Beach, California, my partner and I settled here in San Francisco. I enjoy my day job as a city planner, as well as my hobbies: politics, performance, and being outdoors!

Day-of-Wedding Planner A Day-Of-Wedding Planner is a perfect solution for couples who have decided to handle most of the planning themselves. Planning your own wedding is a great way to stay on budget and to keep costs down. But when your wedding day arrives, you will need a professional on your side to execute the minute-by-minute specifics of your plan. Many couples ask their maid-of-honor, a family member, or a friend to handle this task. But managing all of these details can be very stressful. In most cases, family and friends have no experience managing an event and too-often end up feeling overwhelmed as they try to focus on everything that must be done to ensure your day runs smoothly. Your Day-of-Wedding Planner will be on-site from beginning to end. We will be the focal point, the main contact person on your wedding day. Before your wedding day, though we are certainly available to brainstorm and answer your planning questions, all agreements should be finalized with your vendors prior to the wedding.

Mazal Tov to you and your sweetheart for experiencing the sacred under your Chuppah. I will guide you through the Ceremony and that experience will always be a precious memory. Here are excerpts from the Ceremony. Together, we will personalize the words and rituals that your families and friends witness. The Wedding Ceremony: An Act of Kiddushin May the covenant, which you are consummating, enrich and ennoble your lives. May you tap the inner wellspring of your being as you present each other with the gifts of self. Affection and companionship are freely given. Gladness and joy freely shared. Peace in your hearts and in your home freely sought. May this covenant sustain you in times of trial and comfort you when mystery seems to rule. May it unite and strengthen you in your search for faith and trust, for meaning and purpose. May your covenant join your lives and your histories together. And may your bond of marriage be sealed with everlasting love. *** You have spoken the words and performed the rites that unite your lives. You are now husband and wife, husband and husband or wife and wife, and a family. The life before you is committed to cheerfulness, to reverence for each other, to respect for each other and to fidelity to this family. These are the cornerstones that link you together. These are the touchstones that reflect your highest hopes. *** Though you may yet know the cold, you will be warmth to each other. Though you may know the dark, you will be light to each other. May your years be long upon the earth and may all that is beautiful and true abide with you forever.
