Congratulations on your engagement!

judith-kubish1Now that you are planning and preparing for your wedding day, you are facing  the previously uncharted territory of finding an officiant.  You are not certain, yet, what you want your ceremony to be like. You are discovering that you have some choices both about ‘who” and “what”.

  • Do you want a ceremony so reflective of you that it seems like you wrote it yourselves?
  • Do you want to give yourselves and your guests a sustaining and renewing memory to carry in your hearts?
  • Do you want to feel relaxed, at ease, confident and united as you say “I do”, because you are being guided through the ceremony by someone who holds your desires first and foremost?

I will collaborate with you in choosing the words, symbols, and rituals that reflect you.  I will make your day and your celebration radiant with your love.

Your custom designed wedding ceremony takes place at the location of your choice. I travel within the greater Milwaukee area (and sometimes beyond). My fees vary due to the custom nature of ceremony planning services and your choice of a wedding package. For more information, please see Services and Fees. If you want to check my availability for your date, you can contact me now.

"Choosing Judith as our celebrant was the best decision we made with our wedding. Most wedding ceremonies are nice, yet a bit boring and forgettable. But Judith really took the time to get to know us and she created a ceremony that was meaningful to both us and our families. It was absolutely perfect. So many of our friends and family members commented how the ceremony truly embodied ‘us’ as a couple."
- Brian

I am delighted to work with couples who want to engage in that kind of personal and creative process. I am an officiant particularly suitable for you if you do not find your home in a particular church, yet do not want only a judicial ceremony or cut–and-paste options.

If you want a custom-designed, creative ceremony that includes at its heart your love story and relationship, your spirits, and your minds, with expression that is meaningful to you and that will touch your guests, please continue to explore the information on this site or contact me now. It will be an honor for me to celebrate you.

I look forward to meeting you and hearing your love story.  Contact me today!
