Wedding vows, speeches and toasts are about storytelling. Your story as individuals, a couple, a father, maid of honor, best man. Whether you lead with humor or love, an anecdote or a love note, the words you say on this day will resonate. And what will people remember most? Authenticity and presentation!

My overall approach as a Vow Coach and Officiant is to orchestrate the spoken word from beginning to end: The ceremony, the vows, readings, poems, speeches, and toasts.  I am a Juilliard-trained actress and public speaker.  I will help you craft the perfect words and coach you in delivering the most important performance of your life.

My services are always customized to fit your needs and preferences: In-person, virtual, on-site. I can attend rehearsals, and weddings (globally): Last minute run-throughs, preparations, calm the nerves, whatever it takes!  

As an officiant, all ceremonies are created to reflect the unique personalities, and beliefs of the couple.

My rates are $100/hour for remote sessions, $200/hour for in-person, $75/ for editing, and $500 flat fee for officiating. Circumstances vary:  I offer package pricing also.
