I'm all about living intentionally and loving radically, especially on your wedding day where you're bringing people together and centering what matters most to you. 

When my hubs and I got married over 10 years ago, the day before Obama was elected President, our ceremony didn't feel like us at all. Family obligation and tradition stalled our dreams of an intimate celebration that honored the history that was about to happen. So when I fell into the rabbit-hole world of officiating in 2015, my mission was simple:

Spread love, honor every journey, and

shake shit up! 
 

I count myself lucky to be the person to celebrate your love, share your story, and pronounce you married. Your ceremony should be a genuine representation of your story, your values, and what matters most to you.

In our book, your ceremony is THE moment where you look back on all the ups and downs of your journey together, feel present in your joy, and look forward to this married chapter of your lives ready to face the unknown, side by side. 

Let's breathe RADICAL LOVE into wedding ceremonies, amores!

I'm all about the power of connection and commitment, especially the kind that breaks the mold and boldly stands united in the face of challenges and adversity! 

While my first marriage didn’t last as long as I’d hoped, I'm coming into this wedding space with an open heart, solid relationship experience, and practical wisdom to share. Ask me anything!

 

While my dreamer heart leads the way, I'm 100% grounded by a need for truth and justice. Simply put, I'm an idealist looking to do my part to make the world a little safer, life a little better, and love a whole lot sweeter one action at a time.

 

In our world, what we DO matters a whole lot, but the words we use and the stories we choose to tell matter too. We're here for ALL the love stories as we believe they help spread more of what we need in this world - understanding, camaraderie, and unity.

 

Let's co-create a ceremony that reflects you, celebrates your relationship journey and your choice, and honors your shared vision for life and love as a married team.

LET'S KICKSTART YOUR WEDDING WITH A KICKASS CEREMONY!
