About Me

I'm no canned officiant. I'm a queer, feminist, cosplay-loving poet. I'm about crafting the coolest wedding you've ever been to - yours - whatever your shape, size, color, gender, quirk, or kink.

My Story

In 2012, my friend Kelly called. "I know you're studying to be a minister. Would you maybe want to officiate our wedding?" Kelly's never set foot inside a church, so she didn't know any ministers. Kris wanted some traditional elements, but they didn't want a canned officiant. And thus my wedding officiating career was born. Since then, I've done it all, from a sciencey, stardust wedding for rocket scientists to a dinosaur-themed wedding at the La Brea Tar Pits. Rawr.

I Do

Look to me for weird weddings, queer weddings, traditional weddings minus the weird property-transfer elements. I do rainbow weddings, literal or figurative, rock and roll weddings, and Halloween weddings. I also do other celebrations: handfastings, celebrations of life, house blessings. If you want a bit of ceremony or spirituality or solemnity without the sanctimoniousness, I'm your lady. 

 
 
 

Sometimes you just need Minerva McGonagall there for your big day.

And sometimes you need a Starfleet captain.

And sometimes you need a Starfleet captain.

Or the TARDIS. Look into time and space and see your love.

Services and Fees

What's the sacred text of your relationship? You want wedding readings from Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, the Bible, vintage movies, Sappho, Star Wars, the Kama Sutra? Whatever is important to you and your spouse-to-be, that's where we will start to craft a meaningful wedding ceremony together.

What do you get?

elopement - $250

  • Ceremony of your choosing from one of my books (civil ceremony, basic religious ceremony, or one of my specials)
  • Wardrobe: I will accommodate almost any wardrobe request within reason. If I have to rent a costume, that cost is on you, but ask me - I just might have the outfit you're hoping for.
  • Travel within 30 miles of MetroWest - we can talk about longer distance.
  • Officiating ceremony!
  • Timely filing of the marriage license (making it legal!)

Standard Wedding Package - $525

All of the above, plus:

  • Research and suggestions about ceremonial elements, readings, vows, and music to fit your family's cultural history, your religious inclinations or disinclinations, and your geekery. (This is the advantage of a celebrant with a master's degree in doing this stuff.) Rituals can include hand-fastings, ring warmings, sand ceremonies, bouquet creation...
  • As many collaborative drafts of your ceremony as we need to make it awesome.
  • Phone consultations regarding ceremony components and protocol, including support with navigating difficult people dynamics surrounding your ceremony.
  • Preliminary meetings with vendors, as needed, who are part of the ceremony.
  • A rehearsal on a day/night that I am not already booked (in the Boston area only; an out-of-area rehearsal is something we can talk about).
  • Final keepsake copy of ceremony.

Typical ceremony length is 20-25 minutes (though we can do longer or shorter), and I typically spend 25-30 hours crafting each ceremony, from hearing your story to the final I do.
