"Chameleon is an extremely versatile theme with a myriad of options and styles"

Ceremonial observance adds lucid layers — depth, dimension, drama and distinction — to our lives, making the ordinary seem special, and the special, extraordinary. -Donna Hennes


I am Jen, a Colorado wedding officiant & celebrant, ceremonialist, and ordained minister serving Boulder, Denver, Fort Collins, Estes Park and the Rocky Mountains. I bring my years of experience facilitating ceremonies to crafting and officiating your wedding ceremony (or any ceremony your heart desires.) My passion is to work deeply and intimately with a couple, so that together, we create a wedding ceremony that truly reflects your voice and vision. As a wedding officiant, I strive to create ceremonies that feel modern and relevant, a bit magical and mystical, pragmatic and grounded, sacred and unique, moving and funny — all rolled up in one. I love when a couple can say, “You read our minds, that is exactly what we wanted.” My services include custom wedding ceremonies, earth based ceremonies, elopements, bilingual weddings, and destination weddings for all of Colorado. I am happy to officiate a wedding for two — or two hundred. I welcome all couples regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation. I truly love ceremony of all kinds.


Colorado Weddings

What I try to do: I love to create a feeling of sacredness and magic and celebration, and I don’t believe that you need dogma in order to do so. I love to discover who you are as a couple, what is important to you in your lives, why you are choosing to marry, what you love about each other, and I craft your ceremony from that. I love to make people laugh and cry. I love to include your community as much as possible, so that they understand that they too are an essential part of the ceremony, and they are not there to simply “watch” you get married. I love to think of new and interesting rituals, that are relevant to you, that we can add to your ceremony. I love it when you have the feeling that your wedding was officiated by a friend, by someone that understands who you are as a couple and as individuals. I love to write your love story, or what brought you together as a couple, and share that. I love to help you craft/select your vows, so that they are deeply meaningful to you and your partner.

The cliche phrase "do what you love, love what you do" speaks volumes to your ceremonies. I could never get from your website the moment you created with your (and our) words. Thank you!
"Let's face it-your ceremony is the most important part of your big day. Jen made the entire experience unforgettable. We planned the ceremony through email and over the phone, as ours was a destination wedding. Jen spent time getting to know us, our relationship, our values, and our plans for the future and reflected perfectly who we are on that day, even though it was only days after meeting her for the first time in person. Together, my husband and I agree hands down: Jen absolutely made our wedding perfect. I remember walking down the aisle overlooking a beautiful mountain view, and before starting the ceremony she reminded us both to take a deep breath and be present. After initially contacting her, Jen spent time with us on the phone, sharing her values and the meaning of ceremony to her personally. Her philosophy is beautiful, and resonated with us from the very beginning. I would recommend her as a wedding officiant, hands down, a million times over. I know I'm gushing, but Jen helped us start our lives together and will certainly continue to play a role as our friend."
"Jen is a wonderful person that truly took the time to listen to our story and thoroughly immerse herself into our relationship, our individual selves, and our wedding vision. She took on the complex task of helping us craft a bilingual ceremony in English and Spanish, and she spoke beautifully between the two languages! Jen has such a calming, confident nature about her. She was very helpful in guiding us through any wedding anxiety or stress, especially on the day of the wedding. Jen took the time to come early and check in with both of us separately before the ceremony to make sure we were not getting too overwhelmed, and to help remind us of the true meaning of the day. Jen obviously takes her role as a wedding officiant seriously and is dedicated to the sacred nature of a ceremony, but is also relaxed and able to have fun with it. She took the time to introduce herself to our families on the day of the rehearsal and seems to value the personal connections she makes. My experience working with Jen was very fulfilling and I felt like she did a wonderful job of understanding our ideas, as well as providing suggestions and guidance for things we were unsure of. It all came together beautifully and I would recommend her to anyone!"
