A Wedding and any ceremony you plan is such a special time and so in each ceremony and celebration Your wishes and personal traditions

are included
and honored.
We strive to create a ceremony and celebration that is meaningful and personal and

inclusive of the elements
that will make your day memorable to you, your family and friends.
Mary Jean says,

" I perform each ceremony as if it were the first, last and only ceremony I will ever perform.

Every couple that stands before me deserves to have an extraordinary and memorable experience.
After all, this is the moment when they are making promises of love and deepening the spiritual bond
they have created. It is an honor to be chosen to share such an intimate moment and so
it is important for me to contribute a feeling of warmth, intimacy and magic!
I never rush through a ceremony, rather I speak to the couple and help them feel relaxed and present."

With over 15 years experience we bring knowledge, inspiration and a variety of ideas to the creation of your ceremony so it truly is an expression of your unique relationship and the words spoken will reflect your style
and what is in your inmost hearts.
" I approach each and every ceremony with humility and encourage you to express your individuality."

" My goal is to help you have a ceremony that is more than you ever dreamed it could be
and to that end I pay attention to detail, and listen carefully to what you want.
Then together we collaborate
to create your ideal ceremony. As
we work together, you have complete control of the ceremony content and once you have approved it,
that is exactly what we deliver.

It is a matter of utmost respect and our heartfelt commitment to you that your ceremony is what you want."

We begin by offering a complimentary, in person consultation

to see if we are a match.

At that time I have 3 goals...

First we take some time to get to know each other and see if we connect:
Your ceremony isa most significant moment, it is important to have an officiant with whom
you feel there is a connection, someone who makes you feel comfortable and safe
and someone that cares about you.
Second we discuss your ceremony ideas:
You may have many ideas, or none at all...
you may have traditions or
something you have seen someone else do...
whatever it is we will take time
to explore your personal feelings about the ceremony and determine
a direction and tone for your ceremony.
Third I bring numerous ceremony samples for review:
Together we will review ceremonies to find examples of material that would be appropriate
for you which is a great starting point in creating your ceremony and
helping you to see what is possible.
Often we discover together new ideas or directions you may not have previously considered.

At the end of this first meeting you will have a very clear idea of what is possible

and what kind of ceremony you will have when you choose A Ceremony of the Heart for your Wedding!

I have often been told, " Mary Jean's exquisite voice adds a feeling of warmth, and intimacy."

I have years of public speaking experience and so it is my commitment to perform your ceremony
with love and care and do it so it is warm and conversational and never preachy.
I believe words can be like music and that they should come alive so that everyone listening
is engaged and moved by this very special moment.
