Co-creating your wedding ceremony to uniquely reflect YOUR love story!
Are you a couple who believes...
Your wedding day will be a joyous intimate connection between you and your favoritest person in the whole world. You want your officiant to know you as a couple--sharing stories, values, sticky moments, hopes...working with someone who cares a ton about a deep relationship with couples sounds perfect.
You can’t wait to stand on top of that mountain and declare your love for each other, you’re just unsure about how to include your financee’s devoted Lutheran family and your culturally Jewish one.
You love your religious background, and just connect more to your own spirituality in nature. You can’t wait to honor both at your fully customized wedding.
You want all of those really cool Jewish symbols explained, or your interfaith beliefs illuminated, and eagerly await your whole fabulous, wacky family participating!
Receiving practical support around common relationship sticky spots, personal growth dreams, and creating a pre-wedding ritual in nature sound fantastic.
A ceremony that’s anything but stuffy--it's playful, lights you up, & celebrates interfaith & LGBTQ couples!
Getting to know couples more deeply and creating a ceremony that speaks to your ideals is a core part of my wedding process.
I meet 7-10 times with couples in order to create this personal relationship.
Conversations explore everything from how each of your similarities and differences strengthen your union, to financial decision making, crafting the wording for your wedding covenant, personal growth dreams, commitment to social justice, and how you envision celebrating holidays together.
Honored to officiate LGBTQ wedding ceremonies, I will help you create a ceremony that reflects your values as a couple. I am also a proud member of the LGBTQ community.
What magic could happen if the foundation of your wedding planning rests in your values as a couple and your officiant helps you stay true to them?!
There's not much to say about Rabbi Marshall other than that she is the best. We loved the sessions leading up to the wedding. She asked thought provoking questions that my wife and I really enjoyed working through, but more importantly this time gave us the chance to really get to know Rabbi Marshall which made her standing up there with us on our wedding day even more special. It became very clear to us very early on that she was really invested in developing an actual relationship with us and wasn't just going to be someone who showed up on the day of and conducted the ceremony.
She was always flexible and responsive for scheduling get togethers and made the planning of the actual ceremony as easy as possible! She was also flexible with the actual ceremony and gave us plenty of leeway in terms of the length of the ceremony and what aspects were the most important to us.
Rabbi Marshall was also incredibly accommodating. One of the big draws for my wife and I was the high... Read more number of inter-faith weddings Rabbi Marshall had officiated in the past. I am not Jewish, and from the get go one of the most important aspects of the wedding to me was making sure all of my southern Christian guests knew what was going on, understood the importance of every Jewish tradition and that everything in Hebrew was also recited in English. For many of my guests this was their first experience with any Jewish traditions, and we continue to hear from guests telling us how much they loved the ceremony and Rabbi Marshall specifically!
Rabbi Marshall, you were so amazing, and Melinda and I couldn't think of anyone better to help us start this chapter of our lives together. You rock!

I'm going to respectfully reply that YOU TWO are the best!! :) Thank you for your beautiful words, it was an absolute honor to co-create a joyous and heartwarming ceremony together. Overflowing blessings to you both!
