Her grace, humor, wit, and spirit elevated our ceremony to a level that I never thought possible.
Our wedding was a first same sex wedding for many of our older family members. Within the first
two minutes of the ceremony, any sense of curiosity or fear left the place, and all that our guests
experienced was pride and commitment.
The emails and phones were buzzing all week with friends and relatives saying that is was one of
the best weddings that they had ever been to, and by far the best ceremony they had ever experienced!
The ceremony was constructed from an exhaustive knowledge of various traditions and with a love for
humanity that is inspiring. We remain grateful to August for elevating the lives of everyone present that
She put the congregation at ease right away with her humor and led a Ceremony that had a deep
sense of inclusivity and community, which was critical to us because of the diversity of our guests.
Everyone left the ceremony happy and moved by your words -- it was the greatest gift we received. No
doubt, my Dear August, you made our wedding the most beautiful day of our lives.
The polls are closed and the voting tallied -- it was unanimous that our wedding
ceremony was simply amazing on Saturday.
While it was no surprise to us, so many people who had never met you before (let alone heard you speak) were simply in awe -
you made our wedding full of warmth and love -- far beyond what we could have conveyed without you (and that's saying something).
We are so thankful for all you did for us.
In the months leading up to the wedding August met with us together and individually to
get a sense of our values and priorities, and deeper insight into the unique qualities of our
She crafted a ceremony that was completely original and deeply personal for us, as well as
engaging for our audience. She was accessible to us at all times to guide us through the
process and on the day of the wedding August was the calm in the storm.
Not only did you create the perfect ceremony, but you helped us build solid foundations, changing
the way we communicate with each other, so the day we walked down the aisle there was only pure
joy instead of any tension.
We appreciated all of the time that August took getting to know us and learning about our relationship.
The hours that we spent with her (as a couple) helped her vision in creating the perfect ceremony for us. It
was a completely individualized ceremony that only came to be due to the thoughtful and insightful sessions
that we had with August leading up to our big day. She cast a spell of love and support on everyone.
Thank you so much again for all that you gave toward our beautiful ceremony and event. Once again,
you worked your magic. I am so grateful for your teachings and how they have enhanced my life, as as I
wrote in the program, such a special honor to have you officiate over our wedding.
Even though our families didn’t know each other before the wedding day, you truly made the room
come together as “one.” You have the rare gift of speaking a "universal language" that touches everyone's
heart, no matter what their background , sexual orientation, beliefs or culture.
A spirit of love filled the ballroom and we all laughed and shed tears of joy together.
Even now, one year later, our family and friends still tell us how much they loved the
ceremony. None of our guests had ever witnessed a wedding service quite like ours. The
laughter, the energy and the tears of happiness made a lasting impression on everyone.
The Ceremony is the heart and soul of a wedding.
The Persian poet/philosopher Rumi says that from the day we are born we begin the search the world over for the face of our beloved. So, finding the man or woman of our dreams is a sacred journey, and the wedding ceremony is the celebration of that journey.
You want your Ceremony to be highly personal…
“The hours that we spent with August (as a couple) helped her create a completely individualized ceremony that only came from the thoughtful and insightful sessions — getting to know us and learning about our relationship …”
You want your Ceremony to be exceptionally well- crafted …
“You have the rare gift of speaking a “universal language” that touches everyones heart, no matter what their background , sexual orientation, beliefs or culture.”
You want your Ceremony to be all-embracing…
“Our wedding was a first same sex wedding for many of our older family members. Within the first two minutes of the ceremony, any sense of curiosity or fear left the place, and all that our guests experienced was pride and commitment.”
You want your Ceremony to be written not just in words but grounded in the grace, the light and expansiveness of Soul, the place where we are all one …
“… Even though our families didn’t know each other before the wedding day, you truly made the room come together as “one.”
A ceremony needs to be deeply authentic and joyous. Whether I am speaking one-on-one or to a large congregation the work of creating a divine experience of inspiration and elevation for everyone present is the same.
“… August cast a spell of love and support on everyone.”
