What is your attire for the ceremony?
The couples choose from the following: 1) Minister's long white robe with colored prayer scarf/stole; 2) Dressy black and white top and pants or skirt; or, 3) I'm also open to theme weddings and will also dress accordingly.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes, this is how I work. Couple's may choose from several prepared ceremonies or work with me to to plan and design their complete wedding ceremony.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
I encourage this. Once the couple decides on their vows, they may either repeat them after me or read them from cards I prepare and hand to them when the time comes.

The couple may choose from some pre-selected readings or choose their own. I work with each couple individually.

I encourage, but do not require it. I hold a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and have years of experience working with engaged couples. I offer this service for a reasonable fee. I offer this service to couples even if they do not choose me as their officiant.

Yes. Performing the pre-ceremony rehearsal is included in some of my packages.

Helen was absolutely wonderful! We were planning a destination wedding and were unable to meet with Helen prior to the rehearsal. She was great at responding to my emails and I never had any doubt that the ceremony would be anything but perfect. We were able to work with her to create a ceremony that worked for us very easily. She even traveled over an hour to come to our rehearsal even when not required to.

The ceremony was very personal and it was as if we had known her for years. She worked very well with the planner and DJ that we had booked and you never would have guessed this was the first time officiating a ceremony at our venue. Choose Helen as your officiant and you will not be disappointed!

Helen was simply amazing. From the very beginning, she understood and listened to what we asked for. After our in person meeting, we were sure that we had chosen the most perfect officiant. On the day of Helen was calm and professional. We both felt so at ease with her and once we were at the alter, she provided a sense of calm. Look no further if you want a beautiful, experienced and genuine officiant.

Helen was our wedding officiant last weekend in a park in Tiburon. We wanted a very intimate and simple ceremony. She was great since our first meeting, always very helpful. On the day she did a great job, everyone thought she was kind and had great words to say.

Helen was fantastic to work with. She went beyond the scope and provided extras such as beautiful flowers, florist arrangements for ordering and pick up, secured us a witness and helped with photos; she also scouted and fixed our venue. Our wedding was a last minute affair and she made us feel like we had planned it for months and tailored everything to our needs.

She couldn't have been more respectful and excited for us during the event; we feel that we've made a nice friend.

Helen helped make our ceremony run smoothly and easy. She honestly cares about each and every couple she works with. You can easily talk to her about concerns or ideas. I felt like it was my own mother standing up there with us and marrying us. I couldn't have asked for a better person to help make our day special.
