Your celebration is one of the most important
Bringing Your Service Officiant to You
I will conduct your service anywhere in the Reno/Sparks/Lake Tahoe area, offering you the convenience of choosing your special location, from a large hall to an intimate garden, without the concerns of a restricted service venue.

Accommodation can be made to locations beyond Reno/Tahoe/Northern Nevada, with each being on a special request basis.
Making Your Service Special
Not only will I come to your locale, but you will also enjoy a level of personalization in your celebration that few have come to experience these days. I believe that no two events are the same, so I invest valuable time in acquainting myself with you, and understanding how you envision your service. Through creative collaboration, a unique expression that embraces your event will be crafted to transform this special occasion into a treasured memory that will leave a lasting impression with all in attendance.

At Your Location Weddings & Ceremonies combines the convenience of a ceremony service at your chosen location with the elation of a celebration made wonderful.
The most important invitation you send is to the person who joins you in ceremony. It would be my honor to share with you that moment when two individual lives are joined, creating a new life as one. At that very special merging, it's you, your love, and the officiant who stands with you. Invite Someone Special.

In recognition of the many expressions of union in contemporary society,
I conduct services for a variety of nuptials -
Alternative Unions

From Introductory Greeting and Opening Words to Very Personal Vows and Special Readings, your ceremony will be a reflection of your unique union and the love it brings into your lives.

I lend my sense of spirit and special blessings to many joyful events –
Vow Renewals
And when a very special light goes out in the life of a loved one, my uniquely personal celebration in their memory helps provide comfort and a path to healing. Years of supporting individuals in my congregation as they move through these life experiences have provided great insights into the importance of creating special services that are sensitive and loving Celebrations of Life. I will collaborate with you to deliver an inspired service reflective of your personal expression of celebration and remembrance, be it for a beloved person or a treasured pet.

is applied to these Events of Life Significance -
