Treehouse for Dreaming- Central Park
Your ceremony can be anything you want it to be. Throw away old ideas about what a ceremony should include, and start fresh! Whether you want a religious, interfaith, secular, cultural, non-denominational, civil ceremony, or a blend of them all, I can create it!

It's important that I get to know who you are, as individuals and as a couple. You'll tell me your love story, what you love about each other, and what your hopes and dreams are for the future. We will discuss family, cultural, and other traditions that reflect your story. We may discover practices you were not aware of that will enhance your ceremony.

We'll create a ceremony that is perfect for you! We will discuss how family and friends may be included. I will research traditions, vows, poems, readings, music, including the time-honored and the original. We may even invent our own! The sky is the limit!

You will have full approval of your entire ceremony, and you will receive a beautiful keepsake copy that you can treasure forever. Perhaps you will want to read it together each year on your anniversary, or resurrect it for a future milestone anniversary.

I will walk you through the license process, and will work with others such as the venue staff, musicians and photographers to ensure everything runs smoothly. If you want to have a rehearsal, we can do that, too.

Your wedding/commitment ceremony day will be GREAT! Count on me to make that happen! Call, email or text me today!

"Thank you so much for being such a wonderful calming presence at the wedding. It was so special having you officiate for us. Everyone loved your stories and funny recollections of how Ken & I found each other. You made everything so personal, humorous, and touching. It definitely was so representative of us. " - Pauline and Ken
"Valerie really took the time to get to know us, to develop our vows, and make them special based on our personal stories. She incorporated several details of our relationship into our ceremony and shared them with our friends and family during the ceremony. It made it VERY special for both of us. Valerie is very sweet and kind, she took the time to get to know us personally before the ceremony ... she was one of the family!" - Chris and Cris, Denver CO
