FUNERALS, MEMORIALS, AND INTERMENT RITUALS

It's difficult dealing with grief and loss. Custom written eulogies and remembrances are a meaningful way to say goodbye. We meet with family and friends beforehand to create a "Life Story" for the ceremony or program, and offer unusual and unique ways to ritualize the passing of your friend or family member. We offer nonreligious/humanist funeral officiation and consultations on structure and content for those who choose to write and conduct their own ceremonies.

BABY WELCOMINGS AND GODPARENT CEREMONIES

Every baby deserves to be celebrated with joy, and designating official spiritual mentors is a tremendous gift to your child. We create and preside at unique welcoming ceremonies that incorporate your style, beliefs, and hopes for your child's future.

HOME AND OFFICE BLESSINGS

Cleansing rituals and invocations of benevolent influences are as old as humankind itself. Sweep your new home or place of business clean and invite in happy times! Original ceremonies and personal rituals devised to meet your needs in harmony with your cultural traditions; community participation is welcome.

OTHER RITES OF PASSAGE:
COMING OF AGE, GRADUATION, RENEWAL OF VOWS, SEASONAL CELEBRATIONS

Rituals help us confirm and make meaningful the threshold moments of life. MarriageToGo can help you put together and perform rites and ceremonies to confirm and bless your new status as an adult, senior, graduate, many-moons-married person, or (yes, we admit it does happen...) divorcee.

We also assist with private or public observances of other Turnings of LIfe, be they equinoxes, solstices, birthdays, anniversaries, the Appearance of the First Daffodil in Your Garden, or the Disappearance of Your Last Kid To College.
