Humanist? Agnostic? Secular?

Do you desire a meaningful wedding ceremony that respects who you are within a context of warmth, equality, digity and inclusiveness?  That isn’t based on religion?  Are you a lesbian or gay couple and having a difficult time finding the right person to officiate?

As the first legally certified “Humanist Celebrant” in the Finger Lakes, I specialize in creating meaningful ceremonies to meet the needs of humanists, agnostics, and atheists, as well as mixed faith, inter-cultural, and same sex couples.  Yet even people who are theistic can relate to the common humanity expressed in humanistic, secular ceremonies.

I believe that a wedding ceremony should reflect the values, beliefs, and integrity of the people being celebrated.  I will talk with you about the traditions, elements, rituals, and people you want to include in your ceremony, and will take the time to get to know you as a couple.  My goal is to create a highly personalized ceremony you will remember long after your wedding day is past.
