Gay Friendly Wedding Officiant - Ceremonies in Nature Gay Friendly: Gay Wedding Officiants in Truth or Consequences, NM, USA

For those who want MORE than the ordinary wedding ceremony, Celebrant/Wedding Officiant and legally ordained ULC Minister Celeste Rich can help orchestrate and officiate a wedding that reflects YOUR beliefs and lifestyle. She offers unique customized optional rituals, e.g. Past/Present/Future or Family Sand-blending into Unity Vase; Native American Blanket ritual; Ribbons of Hope & Wishes; Earth-based rituals such as the Circle of Life, Equinox and Solstice rituals etc. Digital Photography services and even a decorated Wedding Arch are also offered. Themed ceremonies welcomed!

Her goal is to provide superior service at a fair price to all, and to offer a complete ceremony that will provide a sense of satisfaction and contentment afterwards, wonderful memories to last a lifetime, and one that will have your guests (if any) raving about it all during the reception.

Reverend Celeste was ordained in 2002, and has officiated more than 450 ceremonies in southern New Mexico, northwest Texas, and along the Central Coast of California. Celeste loves working with couples from all walks of life to provide a ceremony that truly resonates with them. After all, the ceremony itself sets the tone for the rest of the celebration! She is more than willing to travel ANYWHERE to officiate YOUR wedding and welcomes not only unusual venues and themes but adventurous outings like a river raft or hot air balloon wedding. : )

Celeste has also officiated many ceremonies for same-sex couples since being ordained in California in 2002, but she doesn't feel there is any need to differentiate between ceremonies for gay versus straight couples because love is love. With more than 450 ceremonies under her belt as of 2015 (she officiated 65 same sex marriages in 2014 ALONE!), she is sure to come up with a ceremony that will be perfect for the two of you! The new laws didn't change anything in the way she conducts herself and her business; rather the laws now reflect what her beliefs have been all along!

In fact, couples from as far away as over five hours' drive have booked Celeste's services in order to have someone they felt confident would be comfortable and beyond competent to work with them to create a wedding ceremony that fulfilled their special desires.

She has officiated weddings in so many locations there is not room to list them all here, but her home base of Truth or Consequences and other locales in Sierra County are also wonderful places for your destination wedding! For local weddings, Celeste can provide the two required witnesses if you want a true elopement (and she even officiated a wedding of this type at the Riverbend Hot Springs for a couple who flew over from Hawaii!

If you like the idea of your Marriage License (you will receive the original back from the County Clerk) to have as your wedding location "Truth or Consequences", maybe a trip here is right for you!
