What They Are Saying About
Joan Bogwill, Officiant Services at Heartfelt Custom Ceremonies, LLC

"When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece."--John Ruskin

 

Often a couple requests a simple ceremony. Whether celebrating a large or micro wedding, a custom ceremony adds meaning while keeping the ceremony's planning and "feel" simple. 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.

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.
