It's All About You!

Your wedding day is your day:

  • The day you make a formal and public commitment and vow to each other.  
  • The day people who love you gather to celebrate your relationship with you.  
  • The day you have been planning and anticipating for so long...

Many couples see planning a ceremony as an overwhelming task.  Others know exactly what they want.  No matter where you fall on this continuum, I will assist you in developing your ceremony into a meaningful event.

Perhaps you prefer a small, intimate, and private ceremony in your home; perhaps you have always dreamed of a garden ceremony with 500 of your closest friends gathered.  No matter what your taste, we will work together on all aspects and parts of your ceremony to create just what you envision. 

There are web sites on the “Links” page that will offer suggested readings/poetry, music, and other content ideas, as well as vendors that you might want to check out.

A comprehensive booklet to aid you in your planning process! Included are ideas for readings, vows, blessings, and every other part of a wedding ceremony that you may want to incorporate into your event.  Also has a ceremony outline so that you can keep all of your choices organized on one page.  While this aid is included as part of the Rose or Daffodil Packages, it is also available for purchase by itself.   

The Planner is available in two formats: PDF (email delivery) or Spiral Bound Hard Copy (USPS delivery).

  • PDF - $20
  • Hard Copy - $30 + shipping 

(shipping calculated at time of order)

Just email me at or call me at 585-451-2805 to place your order.


In order to meet your needs and help you design your ceremony to your specifications, I offer different levels of service and involvement in the process. 

  • Rose Package - Comprehensive Planning & Ceremony Coordination
  • Daffodil Package - Build Your Own Package from a List of Offered Services
  • Carnation Package - "On-the-Spot" Ceremony Officiation
