Recommit to each other with a powerful affirmation of your love.
You've said it before, but it's time to say it again
Maybe your original wedding was more about pleasing expectant family and didn't feel like "you". Maybe it was rushed and you weren't fully present for it. Or maybe it was the most fun day ever and you just want to feel that wondrous joy of deep connection again. Your reason for renewing your vows doesn't matter as much as your desire to reaffirm your love for each other now.
I'll help you create a fun and meaningful ceremony that celebrates your love today and tells the story of how you've grown together.
How I work with you
Are we a fit?
Start by giving me a call or email to check availability and ask any initial questions. We’ll set up a free consultation visit where we’ll get to know each other and see if we’re a fit. I'll ask you a bunch of questions to get things rolling. If we connect, we’ll start the process of working together to build your unique ceremony.
To make the ceremony completely tailored to you, I'll walk you through a fun and meaningful process of story gathering. I'll make sure that your ceremony reflects your unique history, values and aspirations. Yes, there will be a bit of homework, but it will be way more fun than memorizing times tables, I promise.
I'll work with you to create the ceremony until you’re completely happy with every aspect of it, from your vows (totally distinctive -- what you really want to reaffirm to each other), to readings, music, and how you want to include others (or not) in the service. I have tons of ideas and examples to draw on that you can use to shape something that completely suits you. This stuff matters to you, so it matters to me. You're at the centre of the process the whole way through.
Vow Renewal day!
For the vow renewal day itself, I'll be your champion at the front of the room. I'll make sure that your ceremony is a completely joyous and deeply meaningful celebration of your love story.
Sound good? Then let's connect to get started.
Sounds great, but how much is it going to cost?
Yep, custom ceremonies aren't the usual out-of-the-box fare, so neither are the fees. I offer two ceremony levels:
Completely Custom Celebration
Completely Custom ceremonies are just that: totally tailored to each couple from start to finish. Original stories. Original vows. A process of story harvesting that will help you connect with each other on a deep level. I'll work directly with you for as long as it takes to make sure that I glean all of the stories, quirks, and magic of your relationship. From there, I'll turn it into a ceremony bursting with joy and deep meaning for you and those who join the fun.
In addition to all of the up-front connection, I'll give you my full attention on the day of the ceremony and never book more than one Completely Custom Celebration per day.
$1,200+ depending on length and number of ceremony elements. Includes in-depth story gathering, ceremony writing and editing until you're delighted, and officiating.
Story Snapshot Service
If you’re constrained by time or budget, I still want to help you create a service that is deeply meaningful to you. I'll customize your ceremony and harvest your unique story, but the service is shorter and includes fewer ceremony elements. Like a favourite photo snapshot, I'll capture the important pieces and create a memory that'll make you smile every time you see it.
$800-$1,000. Includes essential story gathering, ceremony writing, and officiating.
