A wedding is all about celebrating your partnership and who you are as a couple. It’s a wonderful opportunity to share snippets of your story and include meaningful traditions to create a day you’ll look back on with fondness.
As a social worker, I get to learn about people and hear their stories. I’ve also found a passion for facilitating special events and holding space for the sacred, the beautiful, and the profound. Wedding officiating allows me to draw on my social work skills to get to know your story and craft a ceremony that reflects who you are and what you care about.
In addition to an officiant and a social worker, I’m also a harpist and am training in harp therapy. In my downtime, I love to explore local parks and beaches with my two young boys and hike through BC’s forests with friends. Or if the weather is bad, you’ll find me inside with a cup of tea and my watercolour paints.
I’ve learned that for marriage to be healthy and happy, it truly needs to be a partnership where each person supports, values, cherishes, and seeks to understand the other. My wish for you as you enter your marriage is a lifelong partnership filled with love, mutual support, understanding, plenty of laughter, thoughtfulness, and a few silly surprises to keep things interesting.
I love connecting with people and discovering the beauty and uniqueness of their stories. I can’t wait to work with you to create a ceremony that reflects your story, values, and essence as you enter your marriage together.
I am also bilingual and would be happy to officiate your wedding in English or Spanish.
