"...it felt like getting help from a trusted friend"

Sarah Reed brings a wealth of life experience, a friendly and relaxed demeanor, some serious organizational skills,  and a love of people and ritual to your weddings and same-sex commitment ceremonies.

Sarah specializes in crafting and performing customized ceremonies from the purely secular to the spiritual.  Non-religious weddings are welcome and, no matter what type of ceremony you choose, your input is valued and considered.  Sarah has a great respect for both tradition and creativity.  She was raised a high church Episcopalian (she was even an acolyte!).   However, her more recent yoga studies have brought some Buddhist and Hindu ideologies into the mix.  Add to that a dose of down-home humor (Sarah's dad is noted Southern humorist and writer, John Shelton Reed) and an appreciation of literature and poetry (Sarah's mom, Dale Volberg Reed, is a former English teacher and writer), and you can begin to see the range of material in her arsenal to make your vows just right.

Sarah is comfortable performing anything from a modest, impromptu service up to a big, fancy blowout!  Her own wedding was a mix of old school glamour and Texas roadhouse.  (She's a big fan of mixing high and low culture.)  Sarah would love to talk to you about your plans.
