Welcome!

Wedding Celebration

Strange, how a dreary world can suddenly change to a world as bright as the evening star.
Queer, what a difference when your vision is clear, and you see things as they really are.
I used to be color blind, but I met you and now I find there’s green in the grass,
there’s gold in the moon, there’s blue in the skies.
That semi-circle that was always hanging about?
It’s not a storm cloud, it’s a rainbow; you brought the colors out.
–Irving Berlin

As a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant serving New York and New Jersey, I create ceremonies that bring into high relief what is distinctive and remarkable about you and your fiance’d. Your ceremony’s tone and direction should be a reflection of your respective characteristics and unique imaginations. Most important, your ceremony should be a joyous self-expression.

No two people see the world in the same way. Celebrancy recognizes this and revels in it. A Celebrant ceremony is created through a collaborative process between us. Using your input, gathered through questionnaires and subsequent discussions, I will create a customized, highly personalized, one-of-a-kind ceremony that will best express the essence of what you cherish and who you are, both as individuals and as a couple. You may include music, readings, symbols, rituals, and other elements of your choosing; you are limited only by your imagination.

Ceremonies are little literary gems, personal works of art. Like Joyce’s Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, your ceremony is your story, an artistic portrait or snapshot of two individuals, at a particular moment in time, transitioning into a new phase of life. And like any finely crafted piece of writing, your keepsake ceremony is something you will take delight in revisiting and rereading throughout the years, reliving the intoxicating joy, laughter, and poignancy of a momentous and defining occasion in your lives.

Whether you will be Mr. & Mrs., or Partners for Life, or any variation thereof, the beauty and emotional depth of your ceremony should and will be palpable.

I am in the business of celebrating people’s lives — whether it’s uniting them or pushing them off to something new. It doesn’t get any better than that.
