PRICING: Typically within Ottawa core is $420+HST. Some travel charges may apply. Rehearsals are $100 extra

My Approach: In crafting a ceremony with you, I look to the love in your hearts. A wedding is about  celebrating your love & commitment in a way that’s built around you & your lives. It is sharing your joy with your friends and families. The feelings that you express take life in your wedding ceremony by your choices of words and rituals. Your wedding ceremony comes from your hearts and spreads to those gathered with you. I welcome the addition of cultural, religious or spiritual aspects that resonate with you to honor your backgrounds.
