Josiane is committed to helping you create a ceremony which reflects your personal, spiritual, and religious beliefs. Whether your spirituality is based in a traditional faith or something more earth-oriented, it is her goal to help you express this meaning in your celebration and to support your purpose, vision and beliefs. Her services include the orchestrating of the ceremony in harmony with your wishes and desires, wedding rehearsal, a wedding certificate with picture in color, and a printed copy of your uniquely chosen ceremony for you to keep.
Josiane's experience spans over three decades. In addition to traditional church weddings, she has officiated ceremonies in homes, natural settings and of course on beautiful Mt. Shasta. She welcomes and officiates commitment ceremonies of same-sex couples and couples choosing to have their unions blessed while remaining legally unwed. Both are like a wedding ceremony except there is no official state license granted.
Baby Welcoming, Naming, and Blessing Rituals in a natural setting, hospital, church or your home.
This ceremony is a rite to introduce/welcome the baby formally to the family and to the community. It offers family members and the larger family the opportunity to join together to bless the child and to pledge their support to the parents in their child's upbringing. It also ensures that the child takes his/her rightful place among the members of our society and will strive under the protection and support of those present.
