Your wedding day is an opportunity to celebrate your unique relationship. At Rites of Passage, we work with you to design a ceremony personalized to you and your love story. Kristabeth has officiated dozens of weddings throughout New England over the past twenty years, from micro-weddings and elopements to large, formal events. She has experience with religious, interfaith, secular, and spiritual-but-not-religious ceremonies. In designing your unique wedding ceremony, she will spend time with you to get to know you and your story. She will help you choose or write your vows and guide you in selecting readings and rituals to reflect your unique style.
Kristabeth is a creative officiant located in Vermont who will focus on your unique life experiences to design a personalized, meaningful ceremony. She will consider your values, traditions, dreams, and guiding principles in order to create a ceremony that speaks to the heart.
At Rites of Passage, we offer several wedding packages for your Vermont wedding to capture your aspirations for your special day. Packages start at $375 for an elopement and $725 for a custom wedding. Our packages include personal consultations (in person or through video chat), a custom-designed ceremony, draft review, pre-marital preparation (if desired), and rehearsal attendance (if applicable).
In addition to officiating wedding ceremonies, we offer wedding consulting packages. We provide coaching to assist first-time or aspiring officiants with designing and officiating ceremonies. If you want a friend or family member to officiate your ceremony, we can help ensure your officiant feels confident and your wedding is the beautiful event that you dream it will be!
Kristabeth works mainly in Northern Vermont, but is willing to travel throughout the state and into Northern New York!
