The Creative Process

I would be pleased to schedule a complimentary meeting, video chat, or phone call to discuss your vision of the day. Our initial conversation helps me get to know you and vice-versa, focusing on the big picture of your love story and preferences for the wedding. Whether you are considering an elopement, micro-wedding, or formal ceremony, I will devote time and attention to the development of your ceremony script and delivery.

The heart of a celebrant-led wedding is the narrative of your romantic story. So, our first project is to create that anchor for the wedding. Based on conversations and survey questions, I will draft an essay for your review. The journey of you, as a couple, from first meeting to the walk down the aisle will be written in detail, highlighting questions such as the following:

  • How did you meet?
  • What is unique about your courtship?
  • Do you have a proposal story?
  • What do you love about one another?
  • What are your strengths as a couple?
  • What are your aspirations for the future?

As we move through this important process, we will discuss other elements of the wedding that you might be considering: readings, rituals or customs (from your tradition or others), music, and more. All along, I will be providing resources and support as you make decisions about your vows —whether traditional, contemporary, or original ones written by you! The vows are truly the heart of the wedding.

The ceremony composition will be guided by completing questions including the following:

  • What feelings and ideas do you want to evoke with the ceremony?
  • What makes you and your partner special?
  • What are the religious, spiritual, and intellectual touchstones in your lives?
  • How can we honor your story, your family, and your history?

Once we form a partnership to work together, I am available to you for questions and consultations and will have your special day in the forefront of my mind. I will write and edit your ceremony until each word shines. Your complete satisfaction is paramount. In fact, my work comes with a money back guarantee.

I invite you to review the resources tab in the menu to learn more about creative ideas I have incorporated into my wedding work.
