I am a teacher, writer, thinker, reader, wife, sister, daughter, friend, dancer, vegetarian, dreamer, lazy Buddhist, bird-watcher, fire-spinner, gardener, improv-performer, and native Texan! 

I love helping couples experience the joy of a heartfelt wedding ceremony.  Ceremony can be powerful and personal and should never be boring! I bring a literary perspective to my work as an officiant, and I seek to create a beautiful ceremony experience for each couple, performed with genuine warmth. Whether it’s private ceremony or a small gathering of friends and family, a ceremony doesn’t have to be a big production to be an emotional experience.  And I’m open to helping each couple express themselves by personalizing the ceremony whether that means they want to write their own vows or include a poem or passage they’ve always loved.  Ultimately, your wedding day is one to remember---and I want to your ceremony to be at the very heart of that memory.
