Creatively reimagined, deliciously refreshing, (mostly nonreligious) ceremonies - designed from scratch just for you - to help you honor and celebrate major life milestones and transitions like weddings, elopements, funerals and memorials.
I specialize in creating completely custom (mostly nonreligious) ceremonies for couples that identify as spiritual-but-not-religious, secular, agnostic, unaffiliated, multi-faith, and earth-honoring, and welcome couples of all cultures, beliefs, genders and sexual orientations. I perform ceremonies in Santa Cruz county and all along the coast between Big Sur and Half Moon Bay.
In this day and age when so many people don’t have traditional clery to guide them through major life milestones and rites of passage, there is a huge need for ceremonial leadership and direction. So many of us are starving for meaning and connection in our lives and a heartfelt, emotionally connective wedding ceremony is pure nourishment for couples and their communities.
I strive to create ceremonies that are elegant, relevant, intimate and sincere, filled with love, gratitude, presence and a timeless, “something special is happening here” feeling. These are not cookie cutter, one-size-fits-all, transactional ceremonies. They are written just for you based on a deep and detailed getting to know you process. Then I take your words, vision and values and use that as inspiration to create a rich and dynamic ceremony experience for you. The feelings of goodness, authenticity and connection linger long after the ceremony is complete.
I am regularly told things like:
“By far, our favorite part of our wedding was the beautiful ceremony Naomi created just for us.”
“Your words and delivery exceeded our expectations and we are forever grateful for the important role you played.”
“My uncle Paul has been to a lot of weddings in his day and he said that this was the BEST hands down.”
“We were flooded with non stop comments about how beautiful the ceremony was.”
I am grateful for the feedback because is such a sincere honor to stand with a couple at the altar and perform their wedding ceremony, whether it’s an intimate elopement, a large community-rich ceremony, or a destination wedding.
Here's a little more about me: I’m a New York native and world traveler with 15 years of training in ceremonial creation and facilitation. This includes public speaking, a degree in creative writing, ordination as an earth-based minister of prayer, certification as a life cycle celebrant, and apprenticeships with master ceremonialists. I’m also a healer, singer and coach. I have specialized training in end of life ceremony facilitation (funerals, memorials, and celebration of life ceremonies) and perform those ceremonies regularly in and around Santa Cruz county. I truly believe that ceremony has the power to bring extraordinary beauty and blessings into the world and restore some of what is broken in our society and culture. I feel very blessed to be able to offer this special service in the world.
