About Us

**Due to my obligations as a parish minister, I am only able to officiate a few ceremonies a year for non-church members. Please visit the FAQs page of my website for my dates of availability:** (updated February 2019)

The ceremony is the heart of your wedding day.

In that moment, you stand together with that person you have chosen to dedicate yourself to for the rest of your life. You receive the blessing of your community. And, you make a lifelong commitment to one another publicly.

You want your ceremony to reflect who you are as a couple -- where you come from and where you are headed.

It is my passion to work with couples (all couples, no matter who you love) to create ceremonies that are meaningful, joyful, and heartfelt -- ceremonies that honor you and the momentous occasion of your wedding day.

In serving as a wedding officiant, I bring all the skills and talents that come with being an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister.

I honor your religious and spiritual background (if you have one). I help everyone present feel included in your ceremony. I pay attention to behind the scene details to make sure everything comes together beautifully. And, I bring a warm smile and a big heart to a day that should be filled with love.

It would be a joy to work with you on your wedding day.

Please feel free to give me a call at (802) 829-7420 or send me an email if you would like to talk more about how I can help with your special day.

  • Joan made our ceremony memorable, meaningful, and beautiful in every way. We connected with her immediately, and she was there for us every step of the way. Joan went out of her way to ensure that our wedding was perfect and exactly what we wanted it to be, and we could not be more happy and honored that she was our wedding officiant.
