We are Celebrants... lovers of life & love!



about: sondra richardson

Founder & Principal Celebrant
I’m inspired by people; their cultures, their customs, their stories, their lives. I am a LGBTQ-ally, and have a deep respect for individual lifestyle, beliefs and choices.

I’m also a painter, a designer, a storywriter, a crafty-thing-maker & repurposed-stuff-creator. I’m a a trial-by-error gardener, an experimental cook, a thrift-store-vintage-treasure-hunting-junkie, a traveler, an adventurer, a happy wife and doggy-mama, and last but not least, an exuberant human and frequent laugher… who’s crazy about licorice and salt & vinegar chips – together or separate.

I feel super fortunate to do what I love, and truly love what I do, and consider it an honor to be spreading the love by creating and performing personalized one-of-a-kind ceremonies that commemorate & celebrate love and life for all people, all beliefs.
