Weddings & Unions

Whether you're eloping, planning an elaborate wedding, or renewing your vows, you get lots of  attention and a personal ceremony that feels right for you. I happily perform unions for couples of all kinds. 

Extra-Ordinary Events

Naming ceremonies, adoption ceremonies, trans namings, home warmings, and life-cycle passages for men, women, and young people such as coming-of-age, milestone birthdays, retirement, college departure, anniversaries, and new jobs. Rituals for loss such as divorce, miscarriage & pregnancy termination, moving homes, and other transitions.
