Every wedding goes by in the blink of an eye — and it’s hard to stay present! By creating a ceremony that is meaningful for you and your partner, you’ll create a memory to hold onto for the rest of your lives.
Watching as each couple stands together in front of their people and centres themselves is one of my favourite parts of any wedding ceremony. Every couple centers themselves differently – whether that’s by squeezing hands, whispering, smiling or taking deep breaths. But each one of those moments symbolizes the beginning of what a lifetime of supporting each other looks like.
As an officiant, I believe that witnessing one another’s important moments is a unique gift of the human experience. It is an honour to witness your deep commitment and to participate in the love story you are writing. I hope that you continue to discover one another, surprise one another and delight in all that your partner is.
When I’m not officiating weddings, I work as an ordained minister in the United Church of Canada and as a writer. Hearing people’s stories and supporting their journeys is what makes my heart sing. And when I’m not working, you can find me taking my dog, Eugene, on adventures around the city, going for a spin on my Peloton, or dancing in the kitchen!
Marriage is the next big adventure in your life and I want your ceremony to be the epic beginning that adventure deserves. What are you celebrating heading into this new chapter? And where do you hope the pages take you? Let’s tell that story together.
