Sarah Ritchie, Wedding Officiant
As a certified Life-Cycle Celebrant, I have officiated hundreds of weddings — each personalized to reflect the personalities and desires of the couple. Using each couple's love story as an anchor for a customized ceremony, I am committed to represent the individuality of every bride and groom.
I work tirelessly to assist couples in selecting meaningful approaches to sharing wedding vows, selecting readings, and determining rituals and customs that are perfectly-suited for their special day. I firmly believe developing the ceremony is one of the most enjoyable and exciting parts of the wedding planning process….an excellent way to revisit all that has brought you to this day. Let's make your ceremony as special and unique as every other element of your wedding!
How I cater to offbeat weddings
There are limitless possibilities to enhance your wedding ceremony, from carefully crafted words to innovative rituals. I draw from a wealth of resources to help you select perfect readings and customs that reflect your cultural and religious perspectives, as well as your personalities. I continue to do research to expand my repertoire of ideas and never hesitate to seek the assistance of experts in literature, language, and culture to help in generating new ideas and “fine-tuning” the ceremony. Moreover, my assistance includes thoughts about incorporating loved ones in the ceremony, thoughtful music selections and design elements, and much more.
Sarah was an answered prayer for our wedding. At a time when we were rushed, scattered and under-prepared, she provided a holistic approach to our wedding, consulting on everything from the music to the food to the decorations and, of course, the ceremony itself. We didn't have to worry about forgetting anything because we knew Sarah was right on top of it all. - Brannon & Drewry, NYC
