Commitment Ceremonies

       Holding a commitment ceremony lets partners in a same-gender relationship declare their love publicly among family and friends. Your ceremony should illuminate the essence of your bond ó from what you wear, to what is said, to where you hold it.

       In a Celebrant ceremony, you are empowered. Nothing is imposed on you. Instead, in a collaborative process, I will guide you in choosing rituals, readings, symbols and music to fulfill your ideals and vision for your ceremony.

       You may wish to honor and remember your ancestors during your ceremony, or include rituals from your religious or cultural heritages. If you have children, they can participate in any number of ways, to reflect that your union marks the beginning of a new life not only for you as a couple, but also for your family.

       I can perform all types of ceremonies for same-gender couples and families, including commitment, union and wedding ceremonies. My mission is to create a ceremony that reflects your needs, beliefs, cultural background and values.

       I will:

  • Meet with you at a no-obligation interview to discuss your vision of the ceremony
  • Interview you to learn your personal story to include in the ceremony
  • Consult with you by phone and email until the ceremony is just right
  • Interview family & friends and include their word in the ceremony if you wish
  • Rehearse the ceremony with you at your venue
