Be radically authentic on your wedding day.
Custom-designed wedding ceremonies for the intentional couple.
Whether it’s all inclusive of your community or an intimate, private gathering, I'll get to know you and your partner ahead of time so that the ceremony feels truly personal. Working with me means you make time for what’s really important on your wedding day: setting intentions for your relationship; getting grounded and staying grounded the week before the event; and designing a highly customized ceremony and vows that voice your truth as a couple. Religious, non-religious, a little religious, or your very own brand of spirituality and intention - whatever it is you want to express, I’ll help you do it in a radically authentic way.

Custom vow development and “Promises Box”
The ceremony part of your wedding day can and should be more than just the "check-the-box" social requirement that it has become for many people. By being intentional and honoring your truth as a couple, it can be a sacred moment that sets a loving and celebratory tone - both for the reception party and the lifetime that follows. My focus is pre-ceremony partnership: I provide cognitive & spiritual guidance as you set intentions for your marriage (or other major transition) and help you design a customized ceremony. Ultimately, the strongest relationships are those that are consciously constructed to flourish in the context of the community they share. I'd love to help you and your partner find the words to express that in a way that is radically authentic to who you are.
Honored to design and guide non-religious, religious, & interfaith ceremonies for couples of all genders and sexual orientations.
If you don't know how you feel about your own spirituality, or feel uncertain about how your marriage ceremony "should" go, don't worry. In our work together I'll help you explore those thoughts and feelings in a way that allows you to naturally uncover what is meaningful for you and what helps you feel connected. Through the course of our partnership, we'll find the best way for you and your partner to symbolize that meaning on your wedding day (whether that's religious or non-religious).
If your family comes from a particular religious background that is different from what you believe, I have a lot of experience weaving together the ceremony words in a way that honors their values while still celebrating the truth of you & your partner's relationship. I also love designing unique interfaith ceremonies for couples who have strong but different spiritual practices. While my family heritage is Christian, my personal spiritual practice is non-religious and derived from a single, pan-religious principle: a commitment to becoming the best human being I can be. My studies and travels have provided me with a wide range of experience in religious & spiritual traditions from across the world. I'm most passionate about helping couples dig deeper and craft a ceremony flow that allows you to express yourselves in a radically authentic way on your wedding day.
“Jennifer is absolutely amazing! She invited us into her home for our grounding sessions and created an environment for my husband and I to really relax and create a radically authentic experience. Jennifer taught us how to communicate as a couple, provided us with tools that were unique to us and most of all created the most memorable ceremony. Many of our family members including our photographer said "WOW, what a beautiful ceremony, so unique, and heartfelt, I have never seen anything like it before"! I cant say enough about Jennifer, she truly goes above and beyond. I took her up on her offer to reach out if I needed to redirect my thoughts. I was having a Bridezilla moment and texted her, then poof... she had the perfect response that calmed me in seconds (my husband loved that) and like magic my stress level returned back to normal. I could go on and on about our experience with Jennifer, hands down she is AMAZING and you will fall in love with her just like we did.”
