Beautiful, Memorable, Personalized weddings by interfaith minister with 24 years experience and three graduate degrees in the field.
Rev. Rebecca will help you create the wedding of your dreams, incorporating themes, words and innovative rituals that reflect your deepest beliefs while respecting the traditions you value. Lay the foundation for long-lasting love with a profoundly meaningful ceremony. The process of creation is collaborative and you always have the final say.
Rebecca worked for 12 years with the Joseph Campbell Foundation and incorporates her deep understanding of myth and ritual into the weave of the wedding. Her decades long work in the interfaith movement have prepared her to work with great sensitivity in blending faith traditions within a single ceremony. She also creates completely secular ceremonies using the rich resources of humanistic literature and ethics.
For the wedding day itself, Rebecca brings a strong, passionate presence to the event which grounds the proceedings in the proper sense of solemnity and joy.
Rev. Rebecca ia authorized to officiate in all fifty states but her focus is in the Midwest and southern California. (June and early autumn weddings in Chicago and the Dunes area and the rest of the year San Diego up to and including Los Angeles.)
Rebecca's website has many examples of ceremonies from different traditions and lots of ideas for readings, blessings and rituals.
Rev. Rebecca performs all kinds of ceremonies including same-sex weddings, renewal of vows ceremonies, elopements and surprise weddings at family events (!), destination weddings and "ceremonial" weddings (after the legal union has already taken place but you want to celebrate with friends and family); weddings that include children (and pets!) and other family members, weddings on beaches, on boats, in water taxis, gardens, gazebos, mansions, mountains, chapels, hotels, restaurants, public parks, the zoo, the planetarium, the museum, art galleries, theaters, rooftops and terraces, Starved Rock, Lincoln Park, Pacific Ocean, Lake Michigan, your backyard, the living room - and wherever you decide to have yours!
