My joy is creating unique, memorable wedding ceremonies that are heart-centered and romantic. My goal is to build the trust and confidence to help you relax more so you can savor the sweet memories of your special day. I have received feedback from the family and friends of the bride and groom that the ceremony was so warm it's as if I had known the couple a long time.

We get acquainted with a free phone consultation and determine what type of ceremony you desire. For custom ceremonies, when we meet for the first time, I interview you to learn about your relationship and values, which I use to add personal touches to your ceremony. We can then co-create your ceremony or I can write it for you, depending on what you prefer. I also provide sample readings and vows, and can coach you in writing your own vows.

I create a first draft of your ceremony for you, which you then review and send back any changes or edits. We work through this together until we have your final ceremony just the way you like it.

I serve the Santa Cruz, Silicon Valley, Monterey, and Central Coast areas of California, and have also traveled out of state to officiate weddings. Whether you are choosing a religious, non-religious, spiritual, or civil ceremony, you will always receive the personalized attention and care that makes your wedding ceremony special.

I also do vow renewals, elopements, and commitment ceremonies, and am a member of the California Religious Coalition for the Freedom to Marry.

I was trained as a wedding officiant and ordained as an Interfaith Minister at One Spirit Interfaith Seminary in New York City. In addition to performing weddings and other sacred ceremonies, I do spiritual counseling sessions with individuals and couples. Of all the creative things I love to do, writing and officiating weddings is my favorite. Read less

Janet Ring was not only our officiant, but also a close personal friend. We felt blessed to have her be such an important part of our process. Sharing our relationship with Janet, pre-wedding was a delightful experience.
I was looking at a picture from our wedding the other day and was happy seeing the three of us during the ceremony. It was a great experience.
Thank you Janet

Rev Janet was a great fit for us and our wedding. She exuded love and compassion before, during, and after our ceremony. As our wedding planning happened very quickly, we were so grateful for her suggested readings and ceremony options. Our request was a wedding that was romantic, intimate, and bi-cultural, and that is exactly what we got from Rev Janet. She was grounded, easily connected with our guests, and spoke from her heart. We will always be grateful for her YES!
