Celebrating Milestones, Honoring Passages


ceremonies and recommitments

A wedding, civil union, or commitment ceremony of any kind is a time to say out loud what is in your heart; a time to make public what has been private; a time to enter into society as a couple—blending cultures, characteristics, beliefs and dreams—without surrendering independence. I am licensed to officiate at weddings and other ceremonies either in a church or other place of your choosing. I facilitate ceremonies for all couples who wish to make a commitment honoring their love. One that respects and honors their individual wishes, needs, beliefs and circumstances.

Weddings / Civil Unions


Re-Commitments (Couples choose recommitment ceremonies for a variety of reasons: in celebration of an anniversary, following recovery from an illness, once the partners become “empty nesters”, upon retirement.)

Because a wedding, civil union, or commitment ceremony should be a joyful time, not a stressful time, I also offer guidance to couples as they discuss ceremony location, develop pre-ceremony checklists, and make delicate decisions that revolve around family relationships. I am also available to couples for pre-marital counseling.


"If a unique, personal, warm and inclusive ceremony is what you seek, then Rev. Peggy is your officiant! Peggy met with us twice to uncover the meaningful people and moments in our lives, then she creatively distilled that information into the short and moving ceremony we requested. Two months after our wedding, guests still tell me that the ceremony was a highlight of the night for them, and say they’ll use Peggy as their officiant when the time comes. Bravo, Peggy!"

 "We can't believe we are going to celebrate our 2nd anniversary! Our beautiful ceremony is always remembered when we think of our wedding weekend. It was so perfect - exactly what we wanted!!!"

"Our 20-year vow renewal was a "sacred" experience thanks to Peggy. She added wise words, loving blessings, and a nice touch of joy that gave the ritual a depth we were so touched by. She is the "perfect" choice for anyone who wants to create a special memory for any celebration."
