Your wedding ceremony is a story that begins with your first meeting.
Nuptivity is the combination of creativity with your nuptials. When you hire me as your officiant, you get a ceremony built around your story. Story is the place where your adventure begins.
Your ceremony contains the basics (your vows, the rings, etc.) but its elements are based upon those values you share. A thorough questionnaire process helps me uncover the central themes that are the basis for your remarkable relationship.
I use your love story to create a moving portrait of your relationship.
I develop rituals that express these themes. I find or write material that reinforces them.
This art of words, sights, and sounds will carry you forward as you make your commitment to love. You will not find a process like this anywhere else in our region.
If this is what you dream of on your special day, then let me write and perform your custom wedding ceremony.
My name is Ruth Sternberg, and my passion is helping you express the love and commitment that has grown between you.

“Ruth is the best of everything you want in a celebrant. She helped us handcraft an incredibly personalized ceremony when we were absolutely unsure of what we wanted. As a same sex couple, we hadn’t attended many weddings and didn’t know how to approach planning. But Ruth did!”
– Elizabeth Strater and Laura Moran
