Fees & FAQ / Contact
I offer a variety of ceremonies. I welcome all religions, or lack thereof, and welcome same sex and LGBT couples.
I approach each wedding ceremony with a decade of experience. This is a transformational event. The world slows down and we step into an extraordinary space in time together. You arrive as beloved ones, and you are changed into a married pair with me as a guide and your family and guests as an honor guard.
Choosing a celebrant is a personal decision that depends on a host of variables – just like life, right? So…..
What is your background?
Why did you become a wedding celebrant?
People come to a wedding ceremony hoping to be connected to the wedding couple on what I call a cellular level. And we want to be connected to one another as well.
That is the purpose of a ceremony.
I knew I could make that happen. I knew I could be the conduit between a bridal couple and their guests, and that it would be a way to serve everyone.
So I looked and looked – but could find no way, other than attending a formal seminary. UNTIL…..
How and when did you become a Wedding Celebrant?
I discovered that being a Celebrant was a natural fit in so many ways. With a background in theatre I understand how to include everyone in the room and turn the gathering into an event that is spiritual without being specifically religious.
Ten years later I still love this work!

What is your process?
First – We schedule a 45 minute meeting for the three of us. If you are not in Manhattan we can do this via Skype or other Internet services. So that I may focus completely on you, I will email you a short questionnaire prior to the meeting.
Second – When we meet, I map out our time so that you can easily dip your toe into the experience of an authentic ceremony that comes from the heart. Namely your heart. This meeting is not just a drive-thru. I ask the questions that no one else may have asked, because I know that your ceremony is a place where we explore the magic elixir that is particular to you. Be prepared to reflect on what you didn’t know you knew. And maybe have a little fun.
Third – If we feel we are a fit, we will then discuss the packages that I offer and which might suit you best At that time I will share with you the other steps of my process and we start our journey together right away.
What are your ceremony types and fees?
My Speciality – White Glove Ceremony (ALL TULIS ALL THE TIME)
You have seen it all and done it all. Now you want someone else to do the heavy lifting. Whatever date you choose, I will be 100% available for the entire day. I bring my decade of experience to satisfy your every ceremony wish. We will use my White Glove Questionnaire to craft your unique ceremony, including your vows as well as personal rituals that involve your family and friends
Custom Ceremonies ($1090 – $1810)
You are a couple who wants to work in detailed partnership with your celebrant to create a ceremony that supports your vision and will be a life-long gift to your family and friends. This ceremony utilizes the Classic Couple’s Questionnaire.
Petite Ceremony ($550 – $730)
Petite Ceremonies performed weekdays and on weekends before 4:00 PM.
You want a ceremony that is brief as well as engaging. Perhaps you have just decided now is the time and you want to be married as soon as possible without a lot of fuss and planning. Perhaps you want a ceremony without a lot of guests. Like perhaps NONE.
You, however, don’t want to go to City Hall. Feh on City Hall.
Elopements/No frills ($275)
Simple, simple, simple ceremonies in my office.
If you are a couple who wants a ceremony that translates your love and commitment into words, and then into an experience in which everyone present truly feels the magic of your relationship, I believe we will be an excellent fit. You have a unique love story and a unique personality as a couple. When the wedding ceremony captures that, as my ceremonies always do, you will be thrilled. As well, your guests will be talking about your ceremony for months if not years. Your guests may not remember the music, and they may not remember the food, but they will remember your wedding ceremony and how it made them feel. That is my guarantee.
