Hello! I am Liz. I am originally from Lima, Peru. Since I can remember, I have always been in love with weddings. I have planned and contributed in many aspects of ceremony. From being a bridesmaid, singing at a wedding, to being behind the scenes wedding planning, being a bride myself and now officiating. I believe firmly in the sanctity of marriage and extremely passionate about love and happily ever after. At our own ceremony, we had my church pastor and our cousin, a Rabi, marry my husband. (Yes, I am Catholic and my husband is of Jewish descent!) I am very heart centered individual and, to me, my ceremony needed to have depth and meaning (don't all?), words that would stand the test of time, beyond "for better or worse". Searching for the right components and personalizing our ceremony was a huge catalyst to becoming an officiant. I am also an Altomasoyok Shaman, a wisdom keeper of my tribe. A firm believer that energy is derived from the heart and that integrity is a close second when being of service. Because I am such a hands on, creative soul, planning our own ceremony allowed me to learn a lot of different types of traditions, rituals -- traditional and non-traditional making our day quite unique. As a ceremonialist and medicine woman, there is a lot of meaning and depth into conducting ceremony. Setting the tone, keeping it light, so that you can relax and take in what is being said is an important aspect to me. Giving you the memorable experience you have been dreaming about for quite some time. If I could have married ourselves, I think I would have! ha ha! But we can't always be the blessing. Yet, we can definitely be the caretakers of the blessings that is bestowed upon us.
I believe that words carry accountability. When I officiate, I focus a lot on wording and tailoring your special day to phrases that will stand firm outside of time and space. I like to remind newly engaged couples that: A wedding day is just ONE day of the rest of your life, and it does count! The rest is up to the commitment the two of you are willing to take on. Lately, I have come across a saying that is kind of my favorite quote is " A perfect marriage is just two imperfect people who refuse not to give up on each other" .
On your day, the tone, ambiance, and foundation that you build upon from the very first day is something to think about. Beginning from the person who sanctifies your union. It would be my honor to officiate your happily ever after.
YOU WANT ME TO OFFICIATE YOUR WEDDING?
Upon a brief intake form you and your fiance will fill out, and a $150 deposit to reserve your day (full amount due a day prior to your wedding day), we can meet and go over all the information we need to create a wonderful ceremony for you. I usually meet my couples for 30 minutes at a convenient Starbucks.
If you want to get married just the two of you as cheap as possible, I offer a Quick Wedding service. It’s still really lovely, but the ultimate in no frills. This is intended for just the two of you, two witnesses, or at the most a few friends (no more than 3). Your cost is $75 plus the cost of your marriage license, which you take care of yourself.
