Weddings are remarkable milestones that remind us how precious life is and how fortunate we are to share it with people we love!

Roots of Change is fortunate to work with the most amazing couples. Our clients tend to be creative and progressive thinkers, passionate about life and love, and in search of a moving original ceremony which truly reflects who they are and what they believe.

We serve couples of all backgrounds and social identities, and advocate for marriage equality. Whether spiritual, secular, religious or multicultural--we respect your vision!

Our ceremony design process is meaningful and unique! Through interviewing you and hearing your story, we get to know your personalities, values, humor, and views of the world. We then spend about 20 hours hand-crafting your ceremony, from start to finish, so that your wedding becomes a foundation and springboard for your future! We can also write and share the tale of your love--how you met, what you most love about one another, your most powerful experiences together and what kind of future you want to share-allowing your guests to know you on a deeper level and build community through the wedding!

We want the ceremony to exceed your greatest hopes on every level! And we give you full editorial approval so you maintain complete control.

As certified Life-Cycle Celebrants, we are experts in innovative ceremony design; cultural traditions from across the world; the art of ceremonial speaking and the highest standards in taking care of our couples. Our refreshing client-centered approach draws forth your vision and ideas, enabling us to create an artistic uplifting ceremony unlike anything you've experienced before.

Let's explore your hopes for the ceremony and see if we're awonderful fit. For a complimentary consultation, call us at 248-981-6858, email us at info@rootsofchange.us or http://www.rootsofchange.us/ceremonies/

Thank you!

Best wishes,

Leigh Ann Phillips-Knope for Roots of Change Read less

I never imagined that our decision to work with Roots of Change would result in a lifelong connection with an amazing person! We highly recommend Leigh Ann to anyone looking for a personal and inspiring ceremony!

When searching for someone to conduct our wedding, it was very important to us that the ceremony was unique and reflected our personalities. Too often we've attended ceremonies that were dull and scripted, and we promised ourselves and our guests this wouldn't be the case.

Roots of Change was a perfect match for us, and our expectations were exceeded in every way possible! The process that Leigh Ann used to design our one-of-a-kind ceremony is extremely creative and expressed us and all of our emotions perfectly. Not only did she create our individual love story, but she told it from both of our perspectives, which allowed our family and friends the opportunity to fully understand our love. Leigh Ann was a true partner in planning our special day and we could not have asked for a better person to share this special time with!

We couldn’t have asked for a more thoughtful or loving person to celebrate our nuptials! On the day of our ceremony, Leigh Ann was ahead of schedule every step of the way and was a major contributor in making it the best day of our lives. Our friends and family had so many compliments about the ceremony and of both Leigh Ann’s words and professionalism. The questions she had us respond to in preparation for our ceremony were comprehensive and even made us feel closer to each other as we reflected on our relationship leading up to the wedding. Originally, when we found Leigh Ann, we were living in Texas (and Leigh Ann in Michigan), and we had a great feeling about her solely based on our interactions by phone and email. As our ceremony date approached, and we were finally able to meeting Leigh Ann in person, we had such a warm feeling and knew that we had chosen the perfect officiant for our non-traditional ceremony!

We loved working with Leigh Ann! She helped us create a very personal ceremony that really reflected who we are and what we wanted. We got many comments from guests afterwards, that our wedding ceremony was the best they'd ever been to. Highly recommended!

I cannot say enough good things!
Before meeting Leigh Ann, I didn't think that it would be possible to have a ceremony that reflected both my relationship with my fiance as well as my beliefs about marriage. She turned our wishes into a beautifully written ceremony, while taking the time to get to know us and making sure it represented what we wanted for the most important day of our lives.
On the big day, she executed that vision perfectly.
All our guests remarked that it was a beautiful and unique ceremony, and were very touched by how personal it was.

Leigh Ann created such an incredible wedding ceremony for us that truly captured our relationship. Our guests raved about her. She was calm, audible, and appropriately emotional throughout the entire ceremony. We had such a great time working with her in creating the ceremony and she gave full ownership of the decisions to us. She answered all of our questions and offered suggestions when we needed help. She will be able to make your special event special and is a delight to work with.

Leigh Ann wrote a beautiful ceremony for us. We had a lot of elements that we wanted to include, and she managed to weave them together into an intimate and personal ceremony that flowed well and wasn't too long. We are still receiving compliments on how touching our ceremony was almost a year later. Leigh Ann is a great choice for folks who want more than a fill-in-the-blank experience.

Leigh Ann could not have been a better officiant for our wedding. My spiritual background and that of my husband and our diverse families were all taken into account. The ceremony that Leigh Ann designed was beautiful, exquisitely customized to our needs, and magical. We felt that she did a marvelous job of including all of the ideas and concepts we wanted without alienating our relatives with more "traditional" beliefs. Leigh Ann has a tremendous intuition, and a wide-open heart and spirit that shines through in her finely-woven ceremonies and in her presentation of these ceremonies. It was marvelously easy working with Leigh Ann. Her flexibility and intelligence was always very clear in her manner of working with us. I would wholeheartedly recommend Leigh Ann to anyone who desires a very special wedding ceremony or other life-transition ceremony. She also officiated at my twin sister's Celebration of Life, and I could not imagine a more special tribute to my darling sister.
