Simple, non-religious wedding ceremonies, commitments, elopements and vow renewals. Each ceremony customized for each unique couple, with a variety of samples, readings, vows, and options to consider.

I have been performing ceremonies since 2009, and bring both a sense of humor and sincerity with me. I specialize in the non-religious wedding, and while I respectfully decline to personally perform any religious texts or references, I welcome any readings by the bride, groom, family members or friends that they choose.



I enjoy helping make every wedding ceremony meaningful and reflect the individuality of the couple and their relationship - that is what a wedding is about, after all!

More information about me, pricing, locations, and ceremony samples can be found on my website. I am available via email, facebook, phone, and I'm happy to arrange meetings in person when possible.

Stacey was fantastic! She was so professional and helpful to us in putting together our ceremony. The readings and resources she had available really allowed us to create a ceremony that felt like us. Her personal touches made it even better. Several guests commented how great of a job they thought she did with our ceremony. We're so glad Stacey was a part of our wedding day!

It was a pleasure working with Stacey/ A Simple Ceremony! My husband and I are of different religions and wanted a more neutral officiant for our wedding. I came across A Simple Ceremony website and instantly liked Stacey after our first phone call. She is so pleasant and professional. She's also dependable and flexible around your schedule. I'll absolutely recommend her to any friends getting married. Thank you Stacey!

Stacey did a wonderful job personalizing a ceremony to fit our relationship and personalities perfectly. We also live out of state and Stacey kept up with communication very well. She was helpful with any question that we had and was a huge help with the last minute hiccups that all wedding days have. Thank you Stacey for all you did for us!! Love, The Barbers

Wonderful to work with. Helped us design a ceremony that fit our personalities. After having multiple government employees question our choices, such as how we both wanted to change our last name (one employee at a courthouse was rude enough over how this isn't "normal" that I hung up on her), we were very happy to find someone who cared about what we wanted, not about trying to fit us into some obsolete traditions, and never made us feel weird about it.

Stacey was amazing. While still in the planning stages, she was so helpful, patient, and professional in dealing with a bride who was stressed and scattered. Her ceremony "Cosmic Love", personalized as it was to tell the story of my husband and me, was so perfect. When reading the rough drafts she sent to me, I would laugh out loud at the intense "That's IT! That's perfect!" feelings it inspired. I am also not a weepy kind of girl, but I teared up reading it, and when Stacey performed the ceremony, there wasn't a dry eye. The humor in the ceremony that leavened the sentimental bits, the references to both real scientists and science fiction, it was all so perfect for a couple of geeks who met on a silly game online, and had packed the room with nerds of a similar bent for the ceremony. I can't recommend her highly enough! If I could give her 10 stars out of 5, I would.
