“Once upon a time..." The story of how —and why—the two of you fell in love is the heart of your ceremony. I'm both a romance novelist and wedding officiant. I listen carefully to what you want, then weave your story into a memorable ceremony and bring to life your own “Happily Ever After.” Most of the couples who work with me want a ceremony best described as spiritual, not religious. They want a ceremony that honors the sacredness of marriage but does not rely on liturgy. For more info , please see the "Fees & FAQ" page on my website Also, check out for the show "Weddings with Zita." I've interviewed other wedding vendors (florists, makeup artists, planners, other officiants -- and newlyweds.
