Meet the Team
My 34 years as a Registered Nurse has prepared me for my next career. I was a sought after speaker for conventions and educational events so speaking in front of crowds has become second nature to me. I am also a hopeless - or should I say- hopeful, romantic and I love weddings! I get energized by meeting new people, especially those that are in love!
1. To create and deliver an intimate and personal ceremony
Today, more than at any other time in wedding planning history, there are countless choices and options for your ceremony. In keeping with this reality, I offer many ceremony choices or you can provide me with something you like. It is important that you, the couple, make these choices. This allows you the greatest level of control in the actual content spoken at your ceremony, and therefore the greatest level of comfort. I firmly believe that the words I say that are scripted belong to you. You always have final say. This allows for each ceremony to be personal and intimate.
2. To create and deliver a ceremony with great passion:
Great ceremonies are great because of passion. Passion is reflected in communication skills, in a desire for excellence, and in a belief in the importance and value of great relationships. I love giving the best of myself to couples who are passionate about my role in their ceremony, and who are also committed to having a great connection.
3. To create and deliver a ceremony with the utmost professionalism:
I believe in professionalism at every level. From dress and deportment to communication, to presentation, to resources offered, to collaboration with other wedding service providers.
I believe this is one of the most important days of your life and so it is paramount to me that everything, especially the ceremony and the vows you will make, be a reflection of the couple you are.
If you have family members, i.e. children, that you want to be a part of your ceremony, we can work them in for a special part.
And if yours is a love that has lasted the test of time, I am available to help you renew your vows.
I am a graduate of the Unboring Wedding Academy and will work with you to make a memorable ceremony, however you see fit.
