As a ceremony and ritual expert I bring many new and creative ideas to the 

ceremonies I write for my clients. My listening and writing skills allow me to

establish trust, build rapport and create a memorable ceremony for you. I work with
you by listening intently
to learn what is truly important to you. I will create a
one-of-a-kind ceremony that
tells your love story and embraces your individuality
while respecting
your beliefs. ​

Whether celebrating a wedding, elopement, vow renewal or engagement, each event is a custom mosaic — thoughtfully composed with ​readings, music, poetry, original writing, traditions and rituals that are meaningful to you. When we are finished, we will have created a ceremony that is uniquely personalized and tells your love story.

I offer my services in and around the Raleigh-Durham area. I would love the opportunity to help you select and plan a ceremony that best reflects your wishes and desires for your very special day. I am here to assist and guide you with designing the ceremony that will create memories for a lifetime.
