What They Are Saying About
Joan Bogwill, Licensed Officiant &
Heartfelt Custom Ceremonies
"When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece."--John Ruskin
My favorite part of my work is getting to know my client and their love story. Without their love, I am simply a writer and storyteller. But together, we can design a masterpiece ceremony that will create lifelong memories for you and your guests.
Honoring Life Ceremonies

Saying goodbye to a loved one is difficult, regardless of age or circumstance. However, a series of personal losses made me realize how ceremonies honor and celebrate a loved one's life and helps with the grief process. So, using compassionate communication skills, I will:
Learn about your loved one during our 90-minute to a two-hour in-person or Zoom meeting.
Trained in ceremonial design, I identify readings, songs, rituals, symbolism, and storytelling that reflect your loved one's personality.
Design, write and perform a ceremony that honors your loved one's life and legacy.
