Here is a little bit about me, but, you can be sure THIS DAY is about YOU and your love story!
Since 2003, I have enjoyed working as a self-employed event professional, business owner and solution seeker. Before starting my business, I worked in media, public relations, marketing, broadcasting and advertising. I earned an AA in English at Evergreen Valley College and a B.A. in film, television and theater arts at Cal State Monterey Bay.
My creative background in script writing, song writing, project development and as a performing vocalist has provided a great foundation to be a wedding officiant or more formally an ordained minister through Universal Life Church. I continue to read books, study and research ceremony practices and writing vows.
My special loves are travel with adventures so far in 4 of the 7 continents, writing, singing with my band, learning, celebrations, gardens and my human and fur or feathered family and friends. I have a passion for restoring things from old furniture to old houses and the latest restoration project is allowing the Secret Garden Estate to heal from the herbicide, chemical and pesticide abuses it once faced. Since changing over to organic garden and sustainable land management practices 2 years ago, we have seen an 60% increase of birds, butterflies and bees. It was a simple act of love combined with excluding harmful chemicals while adding biodiversity (chickens, goats and new plants) and composting on-site to utilize their natural fertilizers. Yes, it's more work and weeding in the spring months but, so worth the investment when you are surrounded by gorgeous honeybees dancing over the lavender and butterflies floating past you on a sunny day.
About 10 years ago, I got the opportunity to work with an event producer (to the stars) that I had been trying to align myself with for years. As I worked beside her on her event I realized she was also the wedding officiant. I was WOWed! At that time I thought someday I would become a wedding officiant also. My reason was unclear at the time, but, I understand now it is my human desire to surround myself with love and loving energy. Being a part of these major love moments is a gift and an honor. The wedding ceremonies fill me with joy and gratitude.
My job as your ceremony officiant is to listen and help you develop language to honor your love. I will by nature keep it REAL. Your love story is unique as you are and it's my job to help find the words to fit your romance. As your wedding celebrant we will work together to create a ceremony that speaks truth to your unique love, binds you to each other and delivers you and your family joy and love in that most special moment.
With your permission, I would be honored to help guide you through the process on this special adventure. Tiffani
