The ceremony is what makes a wedding, well...a wedding! Putting together a ceremony can be an intimidating experience for many couples. My goal with each couple is to make the experience fun, exciting and stress-free. Each ceremony is as unique as each couple and I take pride in working closely with each client to find the essence of a ceremony that will reflect you authentically.

Our first meeting will just be a "getting to know you" meeting, where you can find out more about my background, my approach, my services and I can get to know about who you are as a couple and as individuals. Most consultations take about 30 minutes. After that initial meeting, if you would like to proceed with my services, I require a 50% deposit and contract agreement at the time of hire.* 

I am available for weddings throughout California. Travel expenses for ceremonies more than 50 miles from Oakland are the responsibility of the client and will be factored in to the final quote. 

Each of the packages below can be modified to your specific needs. Please note that, as some couples do not require a rehearsal, it is an optional "add-on" for each package.

*For weddings booked within 4 months of the ceremony date, the full balance is due at time of booking
