Ashley Nease - Wedding Officiant
New York City registered wedding officiant, celebrant, ordained non-denominational minister.
Your wedding ceremony is your very own personal and distinctive statement and should joyously match the depth of your love. I create eloquent wedding ceremonies that declare your love, tell your stories and invite your friends and family to share with you, this most beautiful and meaningful journey of life – your formal beginning as a newly married couple.
In getting to know both of you, I take the components of your life and relationships and construct a deeply moving wedding ceremony. These components may include your values, your personalities, the story of how you met, personalized wedding vows, rituals and readings, your definition of religion or spirituality, your shared and individual interests.
Your wedding ceremony may include honoring family members, children, and friends. If you like, you can work with me to incorporate intimate and memorable rituals into your ceremony that reflect your cultural backgrounds and family customs.
As a Minister of The Universal Life Church, I subscribe to their mission to represent religious freedom in all its forms. At the ULC Ministries there is no hierarchy, all faiths are considered equal, and no deity is held above another. In this way I am very happy to include demonstrations of your spirituality in whatever form they take - from very personal expressions of faith to none at all.
You will be provided with unlimited ceremony scripts, consultations and updates until we get your ceremony just the way you want it. I dedicate hours of time and thought into each wedding ceremony, editing every phrase to fit each couple. I provide a full draft of your wedding ceremony for review and approval – nothing is left to improvisation, you have the final say.
I have also officiated weddings where couples and their families perform the majority of the ceremony, I am very happy to work with your distinctive style and needs.
I will create a ceremony that you, your family and friends will cherish as a remarkable experience, and will remember for a lifetime.
