A professional wedding officiant who can write beautifully customized, couple centered ceremonies can also write beautiful ceremonies for those you loved and lost. At the time of death, there are lots of things to deal with. The ceremony is the focal point of the grieving process and deserves the attention to detail a professional officiant can provide. One thing you want is to have the ceremony truly represent the life of the deceased.
This might mean they were an atheist and would not want a local parish minister to do their ceremony with the basis in theology that would come with that. Maybe they were not affiliated with any local congregation and had their own personal spiritual beliefs. Those should be honored and be an integral part of their story during their ceremony.
Yes, we are wedding officiants. We are the area’s top reviewed with lots of great compliments on the personalization of wedding ceremonies. The couples and families who seek this sort of attention to having their wedding personalized and focused on them, not theology or a set belief system, also want this sort of treatment for their memorial service/funeral or celebration of life ceremony.
Spending time with your loved one during their illness, being with them as they deal with their impending death, dealing with your own sense of loss and grief is hard. It is hard for everyone involved. Planning a funeral or memorial service should not be hard. You should be able to have the memory of your loved one celebrated, their life truly represented in the stories told, the readings, the music played, and the atmosphere of the ceremony you plan. The planning process should be uplifting, allowing you to recall the happy times, the times you will treasure forever, the meaningful things your loved one contributed to the world. There should be laughter as well as the tears of missing them.
For those dealing with the sudden death of a loved one, you need someone to be with you as you process what has happened in your life and where to go from here. This is hard work, work you were not expecting to have to do at this time. The writing of the ceremony can be an integral part of processing what you are experiencing.
Some folks want to preplan their funerals and memorial services. This is not limited to picking the funeral home, paying for the casket, and the burial plot. The words spoken to represent your life, love and beliefs can be prewritten. You work with us to be sure what is spoken about you at your funeral/celebration of life/memorial service truly represents you and your life.
We believe in celebrating life and love. This can be in the creation of beautiful wedding ceremonies or in crafting a meaningful way to say final goodbyes to a loved one.
We are here to be your family officiant over the course of your life for all of life’s major transitions.
