Choosing the right minister to officiate your wedding or ceremony is very important. The ordained, non-denomination ministers and officiants believe in your love and that a ceremony should be an expression of your heart and soul, and tailored just for you. Ceremonies are proudly performed for all couples regardless of sexual orientation, marital status, nationality, or religious belief.
Whether your ceremony is Religious, Spiritual, Native American, Celtic, Pagan, Wicca, Theme, or Same Sex, our goal is to perform weddings and ceremonies that are fun, filled with love, and that will be cherished by you forever. We work closely with our clients to develop custom-designed Weddings, Vow Renewal and Commitment Ceremonies, Baptisms, and Funerals. Additionally, we perform Native American Smudging Ceremonies, Mother "Blessing Way" Ceremonies; Baby Blessings & Namings; Rites of Passage; Rites of Healing and Transition; Divorce, Letting Go, and Moving on Ceremonies; and Blessings for Animals, Houses, and Boats. We travel to all ceremony sites. Ceremonies are available in English and Spanish. Free tips for planning and ideas for music, flower, and food selections and ceremony supplies can be found on our website. Call *NOT DISPLAYED* for a FREE phone consultation.
