Shael brings the magic!

Shael made our secular ceremony feel sacred by celebrating our unique values as a couple blending families. His huge heart and endless creativity made him the perfect choice for our wedding in the round!
Throughout the planning process, Shael helped us feel heard and supported by encouraging open communication and collaboration. He married tradition with innovation, as well as us!
As an officiant, Shael conducts a room with his magnetic presence while also making everyone feel comfortable and included. He is a humanist because he helps people feel seen and valued, regardless of their religion.
Thank you, Shael, for crafting a ceremony that created a community of love and a core memory for our friends and family. They were deeply moved by your service and said it was the most intimate and authentic wedding ceremony they have ever attended.
With love & gratitude,
Jody Geddes & Brian Hargan
