Celebrate your love and commitment to each other in a special, meaningful, and joyful ceremony. Together we will create a personalized ceremony that reflects exactly who you are as individuals and as a couple, and that expresses your unique love story.
My Joyful Nuptials include Spiritual, Secular, Interfaith and/or Multicultural ceremonies.
My extensive knowledge of multicultural ritual and celebration insures that the ceremonies I design can speak to all belief systems and cultural practices. No matter how diverse your gathering, everyone will feel included and enriched.
Unique Personalized Additions can be created Especially for You.
Some common requested ceremonial elements are: Hand Fasting, Broom Jumping, Candle Lighting, and Tree Planting. In addition, Ring, Crown, or Flower Exchanges are possible.
The only limitation is your imagination. This is your special day. Let us work together to create a magical, meaningful, magnificent celebration of your unique relationship.
