The Art Of Nuptivity

The Art Of Nuptivity

Discovery & Design

Nuptivity embodies a deep process that respects the importance of a ceremony honoring this major life transition.

 I walk beside you through these four main steps:

1. Deep listening, including an in-person meeting to find out more about your story and your values

2. Preparation of a ceremony outline that includes the elements we have discussed

3. Careful scripting of the gestures that symbolize your journey, featuring your love story

4. Day-of guidance through the ceremony in the presence of your loved ones.

My package includes research, interviews, a creative staging of your ceremony,
help writing your vows, the rehearsal, the ceremony, and filing of your paperwork.
Travel fee within Central Ohio is included.

Because there are so many pieces to this process, it will help me to chat with you to find out what elements are most important to you. This will help me determine the fee that is most appropriate for your ceremony. Most couples average $1,500, for a deluxe package. But check out other options below:

Alternative packages

Ask me about a ceremony with the basics: a personalized introduction, a reading, your choice of a unity ritual, and a combined vow/ring ceremony. Fee: $750 (rehearsal and travel within Central Ohio included)

Want something simpler? I offer a ceremony for $350 that contains the basics: introduction, processional, 1-2 readings of your choice, vows, rings, processional. Mileage charges may apply if you’re getting married beyond Columbus and its immediate area.

Just the vows? Work with me to create your custom vows, which you can use when you get a friend or family member to marry you. Fee: $150

Engage me to write a memorable toast to be shared at your reception. Fee: $150

Elopement or Vows and Rings Only – pay what you want (Seriously.)

If you and your partner are getting married within Columbus, or no farther than 20 miles from the city, and want to have a private ceremony for just the two of you, I will lead you in a ring exchange, allow for a few special words, then sign your paperwork and mail it for you. We can meet wherever you prefer within a 20 mile radius of Columbus.

This arrangement is for a small, informal and very brief ceremony at a park, a coffee shop, your living room, or similar non-wedding-venue locale.
It is limited to the two of you and no more than four other people who are there as witnesses.

Call me for more information: 614-746-4587.

“Ruth is amazing. She spent time getting to know my husband and I and our ceremony was totally unique to us! She even let us include my dog in the special day. I would recommend her to anyone. Ruth is really a 5-Star officiant!”
