This was a great year for Eclectic Unions. This was the year of more than just weddings! I was honored to be a part of three wonderful baby welcoming / naming ceremonies.
My colleague Kim and her husband George welcomed their son Joey.
My dear friends Ben & Emily welcomed their daughter Sydney.
And my incredible wedding photographer Sarah Schulte and her husband John welcomed their daughter June.
And it was also a landmark year for weddings. Kicked off with my Offbeat Bride advertorial in late 2010, my ceremony writing services really took off this year! It was such a unique experience to work with so many amazing and creative couples, all over the country, to craft beautiful wedding ceremonies for their friends or family to officiate at.

And, on top of that, I also created and officiated at over one hundred weddings this year. One hundred weddings! When I started out as a Life-Cycle Celebrant in 2008, I never would have dreamed that I would be able to touch so many people’s lives and work with so many amazing couples and families.
A few photos of some of my awesome couples! Photos are from a variety of sources, please let me know if you’d like me to credit you.
Wishing all of you a very happy 2012. And to all of my couples getting married in 2012 – it’s almost your year! Can’t wait to celebrate with you!
