Your wedding is an occasion that will always be remembered.  By getting to know you and your relationship, I can help create a wedding ceremony that is a beautiful expression of who you are, weaving together all the elements that are most important to each of you.

Your wedding ceremony can be personalized to tell your unique story, incorporating your backgrounds and heritage, your beliefs and faith traditions, your family and friends, the journey that brought you together and, of course, the deep love you share.  I offer couples five different packages to choose from:

One of a Kind Ceremonies Customized Ceremonies Heartfelt Ceremonies Simple Ceremonies Elopement Ceremonies

I offer FREE initial consultations via phone, FaceTime/Skype or in-person.  Based in Northampton, Massachusetts, I regularly perform wedding ceremonies in the Pioneer Valley, Berkshires and throughout Southern New England.  Contact me about traveling for destination wedding and events, and check out my website for more detailed information about my packages or to schedule your free consultation.

As an Ordained Interfaith Minister, I bring to the process a respect for all people and an understanding of diverse faith traditions. I am honored to join couples in marking this significant moment in life, whether your wedding ceremony is secular, spiritual, or somewhere in between. 

I am also available for Vow Renewal Ceremonies as well as Premarital Conversations, offering couples a supportive container to explore yourselves and your relationship in a fun, relaxed and collaborative process.

Hannah is nothing short of amazing! She is professional and prompt in her communication, and was so easy and pleasant to interact with. Most important to us, however, was how thoughtful she was in guiding us through the process of creating a meaningful ceremony. Her intuition and experience were invaluable in helping us decide how to structure our ceremony, but her heart, and the care she has for her work, is what made this experience truly unique and special.

The 5 stars is no hyperbole – Hannah deserves every point we could possibly grant her. My husband and I were lucky enough to attend more than a few weddings in the years leading up to ours, and Hannah happened to officiate one. This made it easy to conclude that she is the absolute best around at what she does, and we immediately sought her out after we got engaged. When conducting a ceremony, Hannah commands a genuine presence without “stealing the show.” Just a very warm, down-to-earth, personal experience from start to finish. She obviously cares deeply about her job and her clients, and this shows in every encounter…from thorough emails, to timely follow-up, to flexibility to meet in person or by phone. She is experienced, compassionate, professional, patient and incredibly supportive. She played an integral role as we planned our ceremony, and on our wedding day she pulled through in every respect: printing my panicked vows for me last-minute, invisibly orchestrating with the DJ and the venue’s coordinator, and leaving us with little to worry about. She even personally calmed me when I felt like a total bridezilla (!) and delivered far-and-away the best wedding experience we ever could have imagined. In her remarks Hannah simply exudes sincerity, joy, love. Many (MANY) of our guests told us it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever witnessed. I would highly recommend working with Hannah, especially if you are after an experience that is low-key yet will leave you and your audience totally amazed. You will not regret it.

Working with Hannah to create our unified ceremony was by far one my favorite parts of the planning process. We were allowed a time to slow down and reflect on our love for each other, which was truly beautiful. Reading the first draft our our ceremony was beyond what we imagined it could ever be. The final product was simply beautiful and having Hannah there with us helped the nerves go away while we stood in front of our friends and family. The number one thing we heard while visiting with guests was how great the ceremony was and what a wonderful job Hannah did. Words can not express how true that it. We are so happy that we had Hannah be a part of our day and that she was able to create a ceremony so personal and loving. Thank you Hannah for an amazing ceremony and declaration of our love!

Chelsea, thank you for this review! It makes my heart so happy to know it was such a special part of the wedding and that the ceremony brought you ease, spaciousness and meaningful connection. And, of course, I love hearing what your guests said, too! It was an honor to be part of your celebration.

Upon meeting Hannah, it became immediately apparent that the our wedding and of the significance my husband and I placed on our ceremony was a priority for her. She met with us and asked pointed questions to attain insight into our lives, our past, our future, as well as our reasons for choosing to get married which are sometimes difficult to put into words. Hannah was able to incorporate pieces of both myself and my husband into our truly beautiful ceremony. Her artfully crafted sermon is something I will carry with me always. Additionally, she provided us with guidance, on how to go about writing our vows, on how to align our thoughts moments before beginning our ceremony, and on everything related to this most special day of our lives. We are truly blessed to have found such a wonderful person to wed us. Thank you Hannah!

What more could you ask for in a wedding officiant?! From our very first meeting, we were impressed with Hannah's calming demeanor and genuine interest in getting to know us and our story. Living an hour or so away, Hannah was also very accommodating when it came to our meetings (using face time or phone). Her attention to detail was evident in our ceremony; she perfectly described the evolution of our relationship! We received so many compliments from our guests regarding how well put together the ceremony was. It was the perfect combination of serious and light-hearted; exactly what we were looking for! We would without a doubt recommend Hannah to anyone looking for a well thought out and personalized ceremony. You rock, Hannah!
Grace Ceremonies responded with the following comments:
Michelle, THANK YOU for sharing this wonderful review. I am delighted to hear you experienced everything I hope to offer my couples -- from a calming and engaged presence to a beautiful, perfectly tailored ceremony. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to work with you two and share in your happiness!

It was a great experience working with Hannah. We live in NYC so we never got to meet in person before the wedding. But we had several phone interviews and she managed to capture us perfectly and created the perfect ceremony for us. It was joyous, emotional and funny. My guests even commented on how great she was. I was running late, getting everything together was hectic and she managed to get everyone in place while I wasn't there and it was perfect. Thank you so much Hannah we couldn't have picked a better fit for our ceremony.

Jen, thank you for taking the time to share this review! I was so happy to read your words and know that even without meeting, the ceremony captured you two perfectly. I'm so glad we had the chance to work together!

All the credit goes to Hannah for providing a level of intimacy and emotion to our ceremony that made it truly special for us. Even though we were planning our wedding from out of state, Hannah did an amazing job staying in touch with us regularly, more than helpfully guiding us through the process and always making herself available to give advice and provide feedback on the ideas we had for the ceremony. We can't thank her enough for setting the perfect tone for our special day.
Grace Ceremonies responded with the following comments:
Elantha and Jon, I am so grateful you shared this review! I loved hearing that the emotional and intimate tone for your special day was set by the ceremony. And I'm so glad to know working together felt easy, even from such a long distance! It was a pleasure.
