Your wedding is a threshold moment.

Let me guide you through.

It’s a courageous and bold choice to enter wholeheartedly into something new. I want to come alongside you to create a ceremony that celebrates your loving commitment to one another and offers a blessing for what is to come.

How It Works

Save the date

Let’s meet for an initial free phone consultation. This is an opportunity for me to hear a bit of your love story, answer any questions you may have, and see if I’m a good fit for your wedding day officiant needs.

Create Your Ceremony

Together we will create an open and inclusive order of service that reflects your unique love story. I will help you obtain and file your marriage license.

Get Married

I arrive an hour before the ceremony to offer pastoral presence, finalize any details with vendors and check in with the wedding party. I'll be waiting at the alter for you to say, "I DO!"

Meet Your Officiant

My husband and I married on June 27, 2009 in Vienna, Virginia. For us, creating a worship service that reflected our values, love for one another and shared our story was at the heart of our special day. Well, that and a taco truck & brownie sundaes.

There’s a lot about our wedding day that is honestly a blur. What has remained with us both is the sense of feeling cared for and celebrated on our special day.

As your officiant, I provide an open and inclusive wedding ceremony that shares your unique love story. I have performed intimate weddings with a small group of friends and family as well as midsize to large ceremonies at a variety of locations including parks, churches, vineyards, country clubs and private homes. I have a MS in Spiritual Formation, am an ordained pastor, certified spiritual director and licensed to perform weddings in the State of Virginia for over a decade.

My hope, as we journey through engagement together, is that you would grow in your love of one another, gain practical resources to support you after “I do”, and receive the support you need to have a joyful wedding day.
