I fell in love with this couple as soon as I met them. Apparently, they felt the same way. Writing and officiating Amy and Ashley's wedding ceremony was a dream!
Life-Cycle Celebrant
One happy bride, Annie Passanisi Ruggles, reported, "At least 15 people have told us our wedding was the most personal, most enjoyable, most memorable wedding they have ever been to. And we attribute that entirely to Bonnie. Bonnie took the time to get to know us, asked us valuable questions about our relationship and hopes for our marriage, and hand-crafted our ceremony to our exact specifications."
Working with a Life-Cycle Celebrant means that you hold the reins. Tell me your story. I will listen with care. Your ceremony will have elements that you have dreamed of along with precious nuances that will delight you and your crew. I look forward to collaborating with you. Let's keep your family and friends talking about how incredible your ceremony was for years to come! 
Holding space for families during precious times is my specialty. Choosing a  Life-Cycle Celebrant means that you value the memories you and I create together for your ceremony. Life-Cycle Celebrants are trained in the art of ritual. We find harmony and commonality among different faith and cultural backgrounds.  

Whether you are creating a wedding ceremony and need a local, Evanston, IL, or international wedding officiant, or you are creating a baby-naming, a memorial service or other ceremony to mark a transitional time in your life, I will listen to your story and find elements that resonate with you to honor the occasion. Creating and officiating ceremonies with you brings me great joy and this shines through each celebration.
