About Us

It's your wedding and it's a BIG DEAL whether it is a small Elopement ceremony or a Large event...your wedding is one of the biggest milestones of your life! It is my personal goal to see that your ceremony is as heartfelt as your love for each other, and if you are having a guest list, it is my goal that it be an experience for them and not just an event. My hope is that everyone will come away with a lightened heart and deepened appreciation for the miracle of love.

Before I performed my first ceremony, I wanted to make sure that a moment as large as this was done correctly, so I took the time and made the investment to acquire the training that would help me to help you experience the ceremony that your special love deserves. I spent several months training to become a Certified Wedding Celebrant and after that, and after performing a large number of ceremonies I felt a call to go deeper and went on to seminary and spent two more years expanding my knowledge and experience and was Ordained as an Interfaith-Inter-Spiritual Minister...the real deal! As a life long learner, I didn't stop there...I went on to become Ordained through First Congregational Church of Tacoma, where I am Assisting Minister, and then continued studies in Chaplaincy, where I accumulated 4 units of CPE. I was a Chaplain at Nativity House, a homeless shelter, where I learned much about the human condition...very humbling. From there I went on to receive my Doctor of Divinity. All of this has been so rewarding and enlightening. I believe it has helped me to become a better listener and has expanded my knowledge of other faith traditions, cultures, lifestyles and deepened my respect and understanding for those who choose no tradition.

I hope you will contact me for a phone call and a quick conversation to see if I am the right Celebrant for you and we can go from there if you wish to have an in-person meeting we can meet in my office, at a coffee shop or via Skype or Facetime. I believe the right Officiant is a very important part of your very special day. Know that after over 500 ceremonies, I am easy going, accomodating, confident and grateful for this amazing work. I am located in Pierce County so I serve Pierce, South King, Thurston and Kitsap Counties. I also may be available for other counties depending on the date and time... Seattle traffic has made me pull back a bit... and if you are in it often, I know you understand :)

  • Reverend Cynthia was a God send! With 2 days left before our wedding, our other minister cancelled on us due to illness. We found Reverend Cynthia and she was amazing! She was very responsive, flexible, professional, funny and energetic. On short notice, she did not hesitate to help us out, even when others were unable to do so. She would answer all of our questions quickly and she was very helpful, sharing her speech with us and even suggesting a wedding spot (since ours was an elopement). Her suggestion was a wonderful location which was beautiful. We had a small intimate wedding and Cynthia also chose a Bible passage for us which was thoughtful. You can tell that she enjoys what she does and she brought that joy to our wedding! Cynthia was personable and friendly which made our ceremony very special. It came out better than expected since we had a great Reverend to officiate it! We would highly recommend Reverend Cynthia to anyone! There is no doubt that she saved us but s... Read more
