Lynnea was wonderful to work with every step of the way. She helped us plan and create the ceremony in a professional and loving way. On the day of the wedding, she rocked the house and showed how great she is at addressing the crowd and connecting with us, the couple to be married. I recommend her services to anyone who wants to have a customized ceremony but does not know how to go about it. You can be confident that you will have a wonderful experience every step of the way with Lynnea to assist you.
-A happy couple

Other Life Celebrations

We provide soulful ceremonies throughout the life-cycle: baby blessings, funerals & memorials (people & pets), anniversaries & vow renewals, graduations, retirements, special birthdays and other Rights of Passage (see below).

  • Anniversaries and Vow Renewals


These are special events; not only do they bring back all the memories of the special day, but they are also a celebration of your continuing commitment to one another. They also give the opportunity for friends and relatives to join in and show their love and support of your union.


  • Memorials


Whether you choose a small informal gathering at the beach or a large formal church service, we will take the time to plan your special service carefully to ensure a memorable and meaningful event. Planning and putting on a special memorial program can provide much comfort to you as you honor the memory of your lost loved one. It also provides a creative outlet, a meaningful way to expend your "grief energy".


  • Pet Memorials


Many of us have profound relationships with our animal family members. A pet memorial, whether just for yourself or with other loved ones, helps in the grieving process, brings comfort, and honors this special connection.

  • Baby Blessings

Whether or not you also want a baptism, bris or christening, your Baby Blessing and/or Naming ceremony welcomes your baby into the family and community and gives thanks for their presence. The family, friends and relatives vow their nurturing support, love and guidance to the child and can present symbolic gifts as keepsakes. Such ceremonies further serve to deepen our awareness of the special gift and responsibility that children are in our lives.


  • Rites of Passage


In our lives there are phases and potent transitions between these phases. Rites of Passage can powerfully mark, bless and inspire these profound times of transformation, such as girls and boys leaving childhood and entering into early adolescence; graduations; women going through the change into sage/wise-woman; retirement from work into the next stage of creative elder; approaching end-of-life; inter-generational family reunions; and more…
