I’ve lived on Tahoe’s beautiful West Shore since 1988. My path to becoming an officiant started after working in a flower shop for a few months and realizing there are A LOT of weddings in Tahoe — and for good reason! This truly is an incredible place to get married. I thought to myself, “What a wonderful job it would be to celebrate marriage.” I found out what it took to marry couples and I started in May of 1998. I was ordained by the Universal Life Church, which believes we are all one; no matter what religion you or I may be, we all live in this world together.
As a marriage officiant, I am excited to be a part of bringing people together. I believe marriage is the ultimate commitment between two people who share goals, ideas, values, and most importantly, love. I also believe the wedding ceremony is one special time when you get to declare your feelings, promises, and dreams to your chosen one, in front of your loved ones.
I know marriage is worth celebrating and I also know that the pre-celebration can be stressful — in that space is where I found my calling. With my many years of experience, I have brought hundreds of couples together, and with that experience, I’ve been able to accomplish keeping the ceremony calm and stress-free. Becoming a marriage officiant has blessed my life in so many ways. I’d be honored to marry you and your partner.
