I tell love stories. What's yours?

I work with couples who want something a little different for their ceremony--something personal, unique and FUN. No boring sermons, or text that could belong to just any couple. Working together we discover what makes your love shine, and we celebrate it. The result is a ceremony that reflects your personalities, interests and personal beliefs (or lack thereof), and leaves a beautiful memory that will last a lifetime. Inclusive and open to all!

Contact me today to discuss your ideas for your unique ceremony! Read less

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Baha'i Faith, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Anglican, Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Mormon, Christian - Orthodox, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker, Evangelical, Hindu, Islam, Jainism, Jewish, Muslim, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoist
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes, this is where I perform almost all ceremonies.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Generally, I will wear a black dress or suit. However, I'm open to anything... Costumes? Sure!
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes! This is not my wedding, the words are yours.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Of course! Your own promises to each other are so much more powerful than any I could suggest.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
There are no "musts". Whatever ideas you may have for any part of your ceremony are welcome! I'm happy to provide suggestions for readings, if you need them.
How long are your ceremonies?
I find that most custom ceremonies run 18-22 minutes. This is long enough to be meaningful, but short enough to hold everyone's attention.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
Nope.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes, depending on my availability.
Do you supply a sound system?
I have a microphone and speaker we can use, if your facility does not provide one.

Our ceremony was truly my favorite part of our whole wedding day. Amanda Brown is truly an amazing story teller and guests are still commenting on how unique of a ceremony it was and how much they loved being part of it.

Amanda Brown sent both me and my fiancé separate questionnaires to fill out and then created an unique ceremony that was so personalized that after our ceremony guests asked how long we knew Amanda. Guests both laughed and cried and I am forever grateful to her that she gave us such a meaningful ceremony.

Amanda is Absolutely phenomenal!!!! She was able to tell the story of "us" in such a beautiful and unique way that was personable, funny, sweet and heartwarming, and unique beyond anything we could have imagined. Not only did she make our day so originally magical, but she is an amazing human being that is compassionate, kind, understanding, flexible, and filled with an abundance of love that permeates every interaction. I would HIGHLY recommend her to narrate ANY event!!!

From the second I heard my cousins ceremony written by Amanda Brown I knew I wanted her to write my ceremony. She was so responsive and met with us right away via Skype to find out everything we wanted out of the ceremony. Amanda was so easy to work with and put together the most special, personal and heartfelt ceremony we could have ever asked for. Everyone kept complimenting how wonderful and meaningful the ceremony was. I would recommend Amanda to anyone who is looking to have a more personal touch to their ceremony and one that will be remembered forever.

Where to begin! In the 48 hours that we have been married, my husband and I have had virtually all of our guests contact us to say that ours was one of the best ceremonies they\'ve ever attended. Amanda was so amazing to work with, I can\'t say enough, she was very communicative, had great suggestions and really helped us create such a personal wedding ceremony, truly something we\'ll remember for the rest of our lives. It is so easy when planning a wedding to forget that the ceremony is the most important part of the day, and, with Amanda\'s help, it is the part all our family and friends are talking about!

Amanda made our ceremony so special and distinctly us! It truly was a reflection of "our love story". We had so many guest asking about her and our ceremony. Everyone was so moved and impressed by how genuine and thoughtful it was. There were plenty of tears as well as laughter, Amanda was able to make everyone feel a part of the service. I can not recommend her enough.

Amanda was an amazing officiant. From our first meeting with her, we knew she was going to bring something really special to our ceremony. She helped us really reflect on what was important to us and why we were getting married and incorporated that into the wedding ceremony. Many people commented on what a fantastic, personal ceremony she provided. She made a great suggestion of a "ring warming" which is when each person there has a chance to hold and silently say a prayer or blessing on the rings before passing to the next person there. I had never heard of this before and it turned out to be my favorite element of our ceremony. We went with her basic service (not the personalized ceremony writing service) but it was actually incredibly personal and unique. I can't imagine having done this with any other officiant - I highly, highly recommend Amanda!

We had to select our officiant from afar since we live in CA, but planned to marry in MA. From the first interaction with Amanda, I was put at ease. She has a wonderful spirit! She met my husband and I via FaceTime and we just clicked; she really "got us". She didn't disappoint us either, she was amazing. From helping us write our vows to crafting out story and ceremony. Everyone (and I really mean a full 90-100%) of our 130 guests complimented her delivery and loved the way she incorporated so many important details into our ceremony. It was truly personal -Something you would expect a close friend to deliver. I would recommend Amanda without reservation!!!

Amanda did a spectacular job. She made the process amazingly easy and enjoyable. My husband and I wanted a ceremony that reflected our story in a more untraditional way. Amanda made that happen perfectly. In fact, two of our most rational friends (read: non-wedding criers) actually cried at a wedding for the first time. And she brought out the laughter as much. Another couple ran over to us after the ceremony and asked how they could hire her, too. She's a consummate professional, a gifted writer and a coach through some of the common wedding ceremony pitfalls. I cannot recommend her more.
