Personalized Wedding Ceremonies that are Spiritual, not Religious

I will work with you to create a spiritual, not religious wedding ceremony that reflects who you are, what marriage means to you, and what you hope to create together in your marriage.

Interfaith Wedding Ceremonies

We work together to create an interfaith wedding ceremony that honors your traditions while expressing who you hope to become in your marriage.

Oberlin Fellowship

My Process

If you live nearby, we meet together three times to plan your custom wedding ceremony. For couples at a distance, we do conference calls or Skype calls. In the first session, we get to know each other. You share hopes, needs, and questions. I give you a one-page questionnaire to take home for our next session. At the second session, you share your written responses to the questionnaire, we explore possibilities about your wedding ceremony, and I give you planning packets for next time. In our third session we plan your custom wedding ceremony. By the end, we know how the wedding ceremony will flow and we will identify questions to be answered. My fee varies, depending on location, rehearsal, and complexity.

My Views on Marriage Equality

Marriage equality is a civil right and a human right. The first wedding I officiated was for a lesbian couple in California in 1988. I’ve married many same-gender couples – in churches, parks, party centers and homes. In 2003, I helped create the North Carolina Religious Coalition for Marriage Equality.
