I was born and raised in a small city in Massachusetts during the 90s. It was an idyllic time in an small community with great friends, where we stayed outside until the street lights came on, playing kickball & flashlight tag (Yeah, I'm old to some of you, young to others).
I grew up in a Catholic School, where I learned amazing penmanship and grammar, but I was left with a bit of a jaded outlook when it came to religion and spirituality. As a product of all that Girl Power (um, 90s Alanis & Gwen?) I couldn't just accept what I was told, and I spent my 20s really diving deep into spiritual, psychological, and emotional matters - in a quest to determine my own spiritual identity. Turns out, I am a bit of an eclectic.
Spiritually Flexible, if you will.
When I wrote my first ceremony 11 years ago, it was for myself and my then wife-to-be. I wanted a ceremony that reflected the spiritually eclectic nature of our personalities. I didn't know of any officiant that did this, so I wrote it and hired a friend to get a one-day license to officiate my wedding using the ceremony I wrote. (He's gone on to officiate SO MANY more weddings! You're welcome, Jon!)
Some of my wedding guests liked my approach, so I officiated my first wedding a short while after that. Over the years, what was once a favor I did a few times a year, has turned into a very rewarding line of work.
I love meeting couples during this magical time in their lives, and working with them to create the perfect wedding day.
I am fascinated by the human spirit, especially as they are found in relationships. Helping couples discover each other and themselves and learn how to truly be in partnership with one another is so rewarding.
I love to read, especially historical fiction or really cheesy predictable mysteries. I love summer days on the beach, and love to spend time with my pups, my beloved and my family, whenever possible.
I love working with couples to create magical ceremonies and even more magical marriages.
