- Ceremonies for Families and Children – including house blessings, baby blessings, adoptions, coming of age, retirements, croning, divorce, life tributes, family reunions, and more. Including tributes to the special animals in a family’s life.
- Weddings. As an ordained interfaith minister, Diane may legally officiate at and solemnize weddings in Colorado and in most other states. Her wedding specialty is “Weddings in the Wilderness.” If you wish to have your wedding in a remote location, she is willing to consider hiking there with you, to officiate at your ceremony in a place that is special to you.
- Funerals and Memorial Services. Diane feels particularly drawn to helping people honor the lives of their loved ones through meaningful and personal memorials – as tributes to the lives of those well-loved. As with “Weddings in the Wilderness,” she is willing to consider hiking to a remote location to honor your loved one.
“I can’t thank you enough for helping me in my grieving process.”
- Community and Civic Events. Diane is available to work with small communities to acknowledge the events in a community’s life. Examples include ribbon-cutting ceremonies to open a new business or civic building; vigils honoring the loss of community members or homes; tributes to community members who have contributed to the community’s well-being. For example, Diane has experience working with a tribute to a community member who protected his property from development — preserving a landscape important for its beauty, contribution to the economic health of the community, and important wildlife habitat.
Diane can perform ceremonies for almost any occasion or reason, so please call to discuss the ceremony that you have in mind. She is willing to consider hiking to remote locations for ceremonies, pending mutual agreement on the trip you have in mind.
