Weddings

Welcome, and congratulations on your engagement!

I am an 0rdained Interfaith Minister who specializes in helping all loving couples create a unique, personal and heart-centered wedding ceremony; enjoy the wedding-planning process and build a strong, healthy, loving marriage.

.
My approach is non-denominational and holistic.  I will not only help you to create a beautiful and meaningful wedding ceremony, but will also gently support and guide you to focus on self care, relationship-nurturing, and what happens after your wedding day.
.
Many of the couples I work with describe themselves as “spiritual, but not religious.” Others identity themselves as hopeful agnostics or humanists. Some consider themselves to be atheist. I also frequently work with couples who have differing spiritual beliefs, or beliefs that differ from their families of origin.
.
Whatever your personal spiritual beliefs are, together we will create a ceremony that feels authentic, comfortable and “just right” for you and your partner.
.
In addition to guiding and supporting you emotionally and spiritually throughout your engagement, wedding day, as an experienced writer and public speaker, you can rest assured knowing I will present your ceremony with the highest degree of professionalism.

What Couples are Saying:
.
Erin is a truly one of the most kindhearted and sweetest person that I met during my search. Erin, my husband and I sat at a little coffee shop and got to know each other. She was interested in our lives, who we are, our hopes and dreams and most of all our love for each other. We easily chatted for a few hours. Erin has a way of making you feel at peace, like you’ve known her for years. She created a beautiful wedding ceremony just for us, just how we had imagined it.. She met us for our rehearsal and reviewed everything step by step, performed a wonderful ceremony and mailed our wedding license.. She’s great, start to finish.. Couldn’t have imagined anyone else being our Officiant. Melissa R.

We loved working with Erin. She spent time listening to our ideas with patience, offered a variety of options for us to think about to personalize the ceremony, went with us to view the ceremony location, and performed beautifully throughout the ceremony. We’ve heard numerous positive feedback from our friends and relatives that the ceremony was so “us”, “touching”, “can’t get any better than that”, and “worthy of remembering for many years to come.” Thanks Erin!

Working with Erin was simply fantastic!!! She helped guide us in the right direction when we were stuck on our readings and vows. Not only did she guide us when we needed some direction, but she made it a point to get to know us — which was really important (and so refreshing) to us. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful & perfect and we have Erin to thank! We are so happy we found Erin! Alexandra H.
