The Art Of Nuptivity
Discovery & Design
This phase begins with a talk about your relationship, your plans, and your vision for your ceremony. After that, my work begins with research, original writing, and scripting of your ceremony. This process can take several months depending upon your vision and results in a ceremony tailored to your personalities, beliefs, traditions, and expression of commitment.
Vows & Toasts
It can be scary to declare your feelings out loud. I will help you give voice to your commitment in your own words and voice. We can practice saying them if that makes you feel more confident. I can also work with the friends and family who will make your main wedding toasts, to help them shape those unforgettable moving or humorous tributes. Already hired another officiant? Call me anyway – because I can help you with these individual aspects.
Alternative Showers and Pre-Wedding Celebrations
When you marry, you will necessarily find that your relationships with your trusted companions will change. Take the opportunity, within a serene setting, to share your feelings and celebrate your unique bonds. I will lead you in discussion and other activities. (Perhaps an evening walk.) You will feel renewed, refreshed, and centered when you arrive for your ceremony!
Memorials & More
Honor your loved one, or your beloved pet with a fitting memorial ceremony. Welcome a child into your home, and when you move into your new house. Moving into a new house? Let’s cleanse the space and make it yours.

“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!”
