PERSONALIZED WEDDING CEREMONIES FOR THE SPIRITED AND CREATIVE COUPLE  

I've been officiating weddings for friends and family since 2013, and these have been some of the happiest moments of my life! I am now offering wedding officiating services to clients. As we craft your ceremony, I'll listen carefully to what's most important to you. I can also offer ideas from my background(s) in poetry, music, spiritual practice, and personal growth. 

Together, we'll create a ceremony that beautifully celebrates your union!

LGBTQ couples are particularly welcomed to get in touch. 

 

Testimonials

NOT A DRY EYE IN THE PLACE

We absolutely loved having Ellen officiate our wedding. She is such a thoughtful and intuitive writer, artist and spiritualist and it couldn't have been more special for us to have her as a central player in the crafting and delivery of our ceremony.

She thoughtfully asked for our contributions and aspirations through careful prompts and questions designed based on her knowledge of the two of us and our relationship. Artfully adding her own voice, Ellen was able to take what we gave her and shape a deeply meaningful and powerful but still fun and whimsical ceremony.

Our favorite moment was a version of our song (Revelator by Gillian Welch) that Ellen specially arranged for herself on voice and ukulele and performed during the ceremony. It was just gorgeous. There wasn't a dry eye in the whole space!
