I am a non-denominational Interfaith Chaplain and professional wedding officiant. I specialize in the co-creation of your unique wedding ceremony or life event ritual keeping your wishes as my focus. I offer a wide range of practices from traditional religious services, non-religious spiritual ceremonies and Earth-Way ceremonies such as the Celtic Hand Fasting. I love working with my couples and I offer a warm, caring approach. My fees vary starting at 325.00 for an elopement. I provide a welcoming and inclusive practice.
Beaches, mountain tops or chapels! Let me help you manifest your dreams as we design your perfect ceremony.
I have no doubt in my mind that Jody was the perfect being to officiate our wedding. I was looking for someone that would be flexible with the ceremony, being open to new/different unifying "rituals" and helping to make the ceremony be full of love. I knew Jody was the one for us!
We met with Jody twice prior to the wedding weekend. Our homework after the first meeting was for the bride and groom to be to write love letters to each other. The second meeting she gave us the opportunity to read them aloud to each other. What courage and vulnerability that takes! Such an impact. In that process, i realize it is something that would be very healing done periodically, as well.
The ritual during the ceremony was painting on canvas, and not only was Jody open to it, she was very encouraging. When speaking with her, you can tell she is listening, and makes sure to create a beautiful ceremony that both the husband and wife will be (more than!) happy with.
Jody and her husband, David, bring such love, warmth, and intuitive connectedness that is hard to not to feel good in. They both make you feel at ease regardless of wedding jitters, and remind you of the ultimate goal to focus on: unifying love.
The ceremony itself was beautiful, and several people commented on how it fit Travis and I perfectly. It had humor, stories of the couple, love, compassion - it brought my husband to tears several time - which I did not expect, but was greatly moved by. Thank you SO much, Jody
Jodi provided an incredibly warm, powerful and calming presence leading up to and on our wedding day. We connected with Jodi immediately when we first met her, and she provided us with some very helpful tools and ideas for preparing our unique and special ceremony. She also provided her own touches to our ceremony, writing and speaking a beautiful blessing for us that was so fitting, elevating and tailored to our unique relationship and experience. Jodi was such a calming presence during both the rehearsal and on the actual wedding day. She blessed our altar with sage and a feather (as well as other shamanic tools) and offered all of us her positive and powerful spiritual energy, which radiated out to us and to all of our guests. We received so many comments from people about what a great ceremony it was and what a beautiful job they thought Jodi did in officiating the ceremony. We couldn't have asked for a better match of an officiant or for a more compassionate, awakened spiritual being to preside over our union! We highly recommend Jodi for anyrwedding or special event!
