Life Ceremonies

Weddings are wonderful but they are truly just the beginning when it comes to life moments that bear celebrating, honoring, grieving, or just slowing down to witness and appreciate. Ceremonies allow us to step out of the busy of our day-to-day and to appropriately honor the significant moments and milestones of our lives.

Ceremonies can enrich our lives and bring families, friends and communities together.

As an ordained Interfaith Minister, I provide ceremony services to individuals, couples and families of all faiths, multiple faiths and no faith.

Many of the clients I work with describe themselves as “spiritual, but not religious.” Others identity themselves as hopeful agnostics or humanists. Some consider themselves to be atheist.
Whatever your personal spiritual beliefs are, together we will create a ceremony that feels authentic, comfortable and “just right” for you and the occasion you are marking.

What Clients are Saying:

“Erin was an enormous help with my sister’s memorial ceremony. My sister was not tremendously religious however still had faith. Erin’s interfaith background was a tremendous help for our situation. She brought wonderful ideas and conducted a ceremony that was calm and loving for everyone involved. Thank you Erin.” David M

“Erin performed a funeral service for my sister today and we all were extremely impressed with how it was handled. My family was so happy and have received many compliments as to how perfect and appropriate her words were. Thank you again Erin!” -Kerri D.

Some of the many Life Ceremonies I can create for you are:

As with all ceremonies I perform, Life Ceremonies are custom designed based on your specific needs and begin with a free consultation so we can get to know each other and see if it feels like we’d be a good match to work together.

Life Ceremony fees usually range from $300-500.*

Fee is calculated based on location, date and level of support and personalization desired.

*As my schedule allows, I am very happy to offer my Ceremony Services on a sliding scale for those who would otherwise be unable to afford my services. Please contact me to discuss your specific needs.

I provide ceremony services throughout Southern New England.

I am also available for travel / destination events. 

Additional fees may apply for travel beyond 50 miles of North Kingstown, RI. 

Please contact me to discuss your needs and my availability and to schedule a free phone or Skype consultation.
