Easy and with Enthusiasm. Joyful. Anticipatory!
You first contact me and after getting briefly acquainted on the phone or via email, we arrange a time and place for a no-pressure, no-commitment meeting.
During our initial meeting, I will invite you tell me about yourselves, individually and as a couple, and we will discuss the style and tone of a ceremony that suits you. I will include questions that may be fun and useful to ask yourselves as your marriage ceremony comes into focus. I can also bet we’ll do a little brainstorming to insure we are the best match to share in your wedding day.
And within 24 hours, you will receive via email a quote for services.
A Shared Clear Vision: If you have a clear vision of the ceremony you desire, I honor it down to the smallest detail. If you know the feeling you want to convey but don’t have a clear vision of what things would “look like,” I will brainstorm with you until we have a structure and a set of elements that feel just right. Finally, I will submit a draft of your ceremony script for your review and approval well in advance of your wedding date.
You ceremony may incorporate readings, music, and other elements such as a blessing of the rings, hand-fasting, jumping the broom, breaking the glass with a happy “l’chaim,” some extra flourish we invent ourselves – or none of these. If you wish, I will gladly assist you in writing your personal vows as I specialize in composing special blessings and good wishes.
Booking Services: To formally secure your date with me, I request a signed Agreement and a 50% deposit. From there, I will get right to work to structure and write the ceremony of your dreams. Balance due: 30 days prior to ceremony.
All About You/At Your Service: Truly, this process is all about you and what you want for your wedding ceremony. I will check-in with you every step of the way to ensure that your ceremony evolves exactly as you want it. I am available for unlimited consultations by phone, Skype or email until the wedding day itself. And if required, I will lead your wedding rehearsal/walk-thru.
When your big day comes, I direct and officiate at the ceremony itself and you can rest easy knowing that the logistics and the spirit of the event have been lovingly and meticulously taken care of. I will see to the proper signing and filing of your license and provide a keepsake copy of your ceremony as an heirloom memento of your unforgettable day.
