My Story
"I cannot stress enough how good of a human Liv is. What could’ve easily felt like just another business transaction, instead felt like the formation of a genuine friendship. Lots of people SAY they care about their work. Liv is one of those rare few who SHOWS it— by carefully holding the stories and people she works with such authenticity and love. We are so grateful for her and our new friendship."

From stand up and sci fi novelist to pagan wedding officiant

How I Became "The Pagan Officiant"

Hey, I'm Liv! I take 1000 photos every time I travel, my voice memos app is filled with slam poetry, I binge watch documentaries on youtube with my husband every night. Percy Jackson was my Harry Potter, Freddie Mercury is my Taylor Swift. I love strong coffee and soft rain.

 

Until 2020, I was a part time restaurant worker, part time standup comedian, part time sci fi novelist. *shrugs* I'm a Millennial, at this point there isn't really a hyperfocus left I haven't turned into a semi-career. I have degrees in religious history, mythology and symbology...the western world has very little to offer me in the "adult job" scope other than teaching or saving the world (Da Vinci code anyone?)

 

But, I have always LOVED love! The snarky flirtation. The long conversations. That feeling when you hold hands in the car. The way you laugh together, explore together, and grow together. So, in 2020, heart of the pandemic, after having my own pagan wedding and struggling to find an officiant... I took my love of love, talent for writing, and knowledge of pagan and non-Christian ceremony, and started marrying people. And I found my calling; the pagan officiant.

About 6 months ago I went viral, by accident on the dancing app (not by dancing, btw) for sharing a video about handfasting. An ancient Celtic/Druidic marriage rite that I perform for pagan couples. 

 

A witch who marries witches!

 

Being a part of your little big day is not only an honor to me, it is a genuine gift. For me, it's so much more than "officiating". It's being a part of your story and helping you write that story into the perfect ceremony.

Whether it's a classic hand fasting, a quirky micro-wedding or a romantic elopement... in town or on a mountaintop... I believe your ceremony deserves all the same care and attention that your relationship does, and should reflect the  amazing uniqueness of YOU.

 

You want to laugh til you cry, I got you! You want to include lyrics from your favorite Metallica song in your vows, a reference to your favorite anime in your I do's, a beer blending or blanket ceremony, a call to the ancestors or an elemental altar... in the words of Shia Labouf... DO IT!

I always tell my couple's that this is a very personal business for me, and it's true. I pour myself into building your ceremony script, defying normalcy and celebrating your story!

The Process

Liv's Story

Wife. Writer. Wanderer. Witch.

I am a wanderer, a writer and a wife. I never need an excuse to hop on a plane, train or spaceship anywhere anytime. I love the outdoors, randomly bursting into song and cooking dinner with my husband every night. I'm a golden hour addict and amateur photographer, will never turn down a martini (my favorites are espresso and black manhattans) and always, ALWAYS, cry when people dance together in the movies.

live this life my ever patient, ever adventuring Sagittarius husband and our calico cat Athena. I'm obsessively organized (Capricorn Moon and Rising) but my childlike wonder and excitement for life is unmatched (Aries Sun). I collect shiny rocks, talk to inanimate objects and somehow remember every word to every song I have ever heard. 

I first began writing when I was 8 years old, published my first book at 16 and have continued a "career" in poetry and science fiction novels alongside a "normal  job" for the past 13 years. 


 I love myth, folklore, culture, humanity! I am pagan, and as such particularly knowledgable about traditional pagan ceremonies. But don't let that deter you. I have married hundreds of couples of various spiritual and secular other faiths (including Asatru/Nordic, Peyote, Celtic, Hindu, Daoist, Buddhist, and more) and many different ceremony structures are well within my capabilities. I have an understanding of MANY different religious traditions, and what I don't know, I love to learn! 

I am semi-successful plant momma, lover of lattes and guilty of repeating the same underground indie song for 5+ hours whenever I am working on my new novel.

 

I am a canvas painter, check list maker, and stressful situation dissolver. It was upon writing my own ceremony that I fell in love with this process.  I'm so excited to be a part of your special day, and I cannot wait to meet you!

You want to self solemnize but you aren't sure what two people say to one another without an officiant. I got you, I write ceremonies for couples to deliver for themselves so that you aren't standing in the woods awkwardly staring at each other like "K... now what?"

So you made it! Now, you can use this handy dandy little form here to send me a message. ask me anything! Just be sure to include your name, your fiancée's name, the date and time of your wedding/ceremony, the package you are interested in and anything else I need to know (ie. location, budget, guest count, faith). Have I mentioned how excited I am to meet you?

FAQS

Can we personalize our ceremony?  Absolutely! In fact, if you’re looking for a “by the book” ceremony, I may not be your gal.

 

How can we book you?  Simply connect with me to check availability for your date! We will schedule a quick 20 minute "hi nice to meet you" chat, I will send you a booking form and invoice... BAM! It’s that easy!

 

Will you come to our wedding rehearsal?  As a coordinator, always, I will be leading it! As an officiant, rarely. We will read through your script together prior and make sure it is everything we want it to be. I find it is not necessary typically for me to be at the rehearsal as the officiant. But if you prefer me to, I ask that you give me at least 3 weeks notice of the date so I can have it cleared and I may ask a travel fee depending on the location. 

 

What about ceremony sound? I have all sorts of microphone experience from hand held to stand to wearable. I am happy to accommodate whatever your DJ has for you, I just ask that if it is wearable, you inform me ahead of time so I can dress appropriately for a mic clip. As far as providing sound equipment? That’s not my forte. I believe its best to leave these mechanical things up to the professionals. :)

 

Do you stay for the dinner/ wedding reception?  That is up to you!  If you would like me to attend your reception I do ask to be granted a plus one. I am no fun at any party without my partner in crime. 

 

Do we need to tip you?  It's never expected… but I always appreciate it. 

 

What if I have to change my start time or wedding date?  I understand, life happens! Just please let me know ASAP, so we can work on a solution together.  I promise I will do my best to accommodate craziness as it comes up. 

 

How do you sign the license?  I sign the license as Priestess with "Reverend." in quotes next to it. I am legally ordained to perform wedding ceremonies. While you dont necessarily need it in some states, I’ll be happy to provide my signature… just make sure to get AND bring the Marriage License.  

 

Do you file the license or do we?  This is a very FAQ :) You are responsible for getting the license from a clerk/recorder's office. You bring that to the wedding. We sign, and your witnesses sign too. At that point, you can return the license to the same clerk/recorder's office from which it was obtained. It’s better if you bring it back since they can make copies for you immediately avoiding any possible delays or oops. 

When do we pay you?  For officiating, 30% is due upon the signing of the contract after our first meeting and you officially hire me. The remaining balance is due no later than 14 days prior to the wedding date. 

 

How much do you charge?  Investment is based on three factors: hours for planning assistance, hours on the ground at your event and travel estimates. My lowest project investment last year $350 and my highest investment was $3,500. Contact me directly to get a custom quote for your wedding.

 

Do you charge travel fees? I’m based in Lone Tree, Colorado and only charge a travel fee if your venue is more than 50 miles (round trip) away.  Out of state contracts can expect flight and car fees, I always try to fly in and out same day, but later evening ceremonies should also be prepared for a hotel in case I cannot find a later flight.For an exact quote, connect with me!

Will you both coordinate and officiate for us? That depends on two things: the size of your guest list and the venue of your wedding. If you are having a small wedding/elopement of no more than 50 friends and family and this is in a national park, a backyard, a home, a small venue or a restaurant (etc.), I am happy to provide both services for officiating and coordination. I can help you build timelines, coordinate your getting ready, first look, guests arrival to the venue and so much more. If your wedding size is just over this, or if you have other questions/concerns (you know the drill) just shoot me a message and we can talk all the details!
