The ceremony is the heart of your wedding day. Whether it is a private elopement with your toes in the sand or a large formal affair, I craft each ceremony to tell your authentic love story and express your vision. By meeting virtually or in-person, I get to know each couple and I work alongside coordinators and vendors to bring your visions into reality on your wedding day. You and your fiancé are encouraged to be hands-on in the creation process. Your ceremony will be personalized and custom reflecting who you are as a couple.

“There is nothing more sacred than the commitment two people make during their wedding ceremony. It is a great honor and pleasure as an officiant to walk two people through such a special experience. Part of my process to help create personal and custom ceremonies is getting to know each couple’s values, desires and unique love stories.

"Between the planning and personalization and the performing of the actual ceremony, we could not imagine a more warm, engaging, thoughtful, and effective officiant for a ceremony. Meredith exudes wisdom, compassion, and optimism--and she made our special day even more special and memorable. She's wonderful--great communication, great presence, and just terrific all-around "
"Words can't describe how appreciative I was to have Meredith officiate our wedding. We had the opportunity to meet each other once before the wedding and her spirit set us at ease for the big day. She seemed genuinely interested in getting to know us, so that she could personalize the ceremony. It is obvious this is a calling for her. On the day of the ceremony, she was able to portray our exact feelings of love, commitment, and laughter to our closest family and friends as though she had known us for years. We are so thankful to have had her been part of our day."
"Meredith is absolutely amazing. She has such a calm and likable demeanor which is so necessary in the hectic atmosphere that both surrounds wedding planning and on your actual wedding day. She was extremely flexible; She even waited at our ceremony patiently while we struggled to find our wedding license! The ceremony she constructed was so personal and perfectly tailored to my husband and I with very little effort on our part. We also had several people ask for her contact info after the ceremony."
