I can't begin to express how wonderful it was to work with Dorry and how truly special and amazing our wedding ceremony was. We had the opportunity to work with Dorry twice. Due to some health issues Dorry married my husband and I in a private ceremony just the two of us and then again a year and a half later in front of our family and friends. Both ceremonies, for different reasons, completely exceeded any expectations I had. She has an amazing gift for getting to know people and learning what is important to them. Additionally she is a beautiful writer and I have received so many compliments from guests about how special our ceremony was. We are truly grateful to have founded her through a friend and the best thing I did with regards to our wedding was hire her to marry us.
I am still coming down from an absolutely wonderful day!I can not find the words to express how blessed and fortunate I felt to have Dorry speak at our wedding. She is a wonderful artist and I am left stunned and in awe of what she created for my husband and I. The morning after the ceremony, my husband and I had a very special and quiet moment in front of the fire place at the Inn in Princeton were it was held. It was still dark and no one was around, plus the moon was full and shining down through the windows. We stood close in the exact same spot and held hands. A rush of emotions come over us as the memory of what we experienced with Dorry came back to our hearts and minds, plus the realization that something remarkable happened there. I felt as though we were in the mist of something very special, almost magically divine during the ceremony. I hung on every word and have never felt so in the moment in my entire life, ever. It was truly a spiritual and emotional experience that I will never, ever forget!Dorry made our ceremony exceptionally unique and memorable. She is truly gifted and we feel blessed to have come together with her to create such an wonderful ceremony.
A celebrant wedding reflects your truth, your personality and your beliefs. It tells your story in a creative, expressive way; and that is essential to assuring your ceremony is one-a-kind.
It’s your wedding day. In a celebrant ceremony the focus is on you and your partner from the moment you enter -- and it continues as you walk back down the aisle as a married couple! Of course, it’s obvious the emphasis would be on you, after all – it's your wedding day. However, at a celebrant wedding the whole idea around being the center of attention is distinctively unique. That’s because your ceremony is designed to celebrate all that is special about you in a way that is personal and sincere. As a result, your guests come away knowing that they are fundamental to the joy of your celebration.
As your wedding celebrant I work with you to select the music to be played, the rituals to be performed, the order and pageantry of the processional, the traditions, readings or blessings which you feel a connection to; assuring that the fiber of your ceremony is woven with authenticity, meaning and care. Together we consider the tone of your ceremony; light-hearted, serious, whimsical, spiritual, romantic, personal, or some combination of these or other feelings. You’ll see every word to be spoken beforehand – the ceremony script is forwarded for your feedback. That’s how you know the ceremony will honestly reflect you and and your values.
From the very beginning it’s your story that’s told – there isn’t the slightest chance of being plugged into a formulized wedding template. True, it won’t be the same as other ceremonies you attended last month or even last year. This I promise; your wedding ceremony will be unique and touching – a memory to cherish on each anniversary and for your entire lifetime.
