Other Services Offered Include:
Baby Naming Ceremonies
A naming day is a symbolic celebration that requires no licenses and has no legalities. A naming ceremony can take any format that you choose. It can be a simple welcome to the world, a formal naming of your child, or a blessing for your baby and family. It is also a time for you to make certain promises and commitments to your child, and for other important people in your child’s life to give well wishes, and pledge their support.
Funerals and Celebration of Life Services
I work directly with the families of the deceased to provide a custom service that truly honors the life of your loved one and also supports family and friends through the grieving process.
Home and Family Blessings
Couples who are blending families and bringing children together under one roof as a result of their marriage have a special challenge of making everyone feel accepted and included. I assist all members of the family through a home and family blessing ceremony so each family member fees part of the union. Having a ceremony in the home that includes everyone is a wonderful way to honor the new family that has been created.
For couples who legally cannot wed, couples who have been previously married on paper but want a public ceremony, or for couples who do not chose to have a legally binding marriage, a commitment ceremony is a wonderful option. The ceremony is given the same attention to detail as the traditional wedding ceremony. I follow all of the same practices listed under officiant services. The only difference is that there is no legal paperwork.
Simply put, a vow renewal is a way to celebrate your marriage. Perhaps you’ve made it to 2, 5, 10, 25 or 50 years together and you want the world to know you’d do it all over again in a heartbeat. Maybe you want to reaffirm your commitment to each other after a rough period in your relationship. There’s no wrong reason to renew.
