Ceremonies: Weddings and more!
In 2006, I was ordained as an interfaith minister by One Spirit Interfaith Seminary in NYC and, yes, I'm a completely legal officiant in every state of the US. Interfaith ministers are trained to build bridges for their clients: between faiths (and non-faiths), cultures and even personalities! If you've ever been at a wedding, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about, right?
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE creating and officiating at ceremonies: weddings, baby blessings, coming-of-age ceremonies, memorials, anything you can think of! I love the process of co-creating the perfect event with my clients, so that it's completely personal, unique and unforgettable. And I love to provide pre-marital counseling to my wedding clients, helping them to not only create a beautiful wedding but an extraordinary marriage.
It seems the love comes through, because here are some testimonials:
I’m not sure how we could ever thank you for presiding over our ceremony. It was truly an honor and a blessing to have you as our minister. I felt as if you wrapped your arms around Evan and me, along with our friends and family, and brought us to a wonderful, spiritual place. The ceremony was my favorite part of the wedding. Everyone still talks about it. You are a wonderful person, Ingrid. A hundred thank yous. May you be blessed with all the goodness you bring to others.

Ingrid, I still can't get over the beauty of our wedding weekend, and how fabulous you were. You couldn't have done a better job! You allowed for everybody in attendance to get to know us, the ceremony was rich and spiritual... it was ten times more than even I had hoped for.
Thank you for a most beautiful wedding ceremony for Susan and Eliot. The day was perfect from beginning to end and I shall never forget any of it.
Sybil, Mother of the Bride
I tell friends and family I have seen in the past few days that the whole wedding was one of the most beautiful I have ever seen, but that the ritual/ceremony was the most amazing by far. You really know how to call in the spirit!
