"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, funeral celebrant and ceremonialist, serving Boulder, Denver, Fort Collins, Estes Park and the Rocky Mountains. I bring my years of experience facilitating ceremonies to crafting and officiating your ceremony. My passion is to work deeply and intimately with a couple or with a family, so that together, we create a ceremony that truly reflects your voice and vision. 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. My services include funerals and memorials, custom wedding ceremonies, earth based ceremonies, elopements, bilingual weddings, and destination weddings for all of Colorado. I am happy to officiate a ceremony for two — or two hundred. I welcome everyone regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation. I do
my best to create exquisite and exceptional ceremonies, and I am honored to be considered for your ceremony.


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!
"This is going to be different. This is going to be custom. This is going to take a person many hours to put together. And we’re talking skilled labor. You know, stringing words and stories and memories together into a beautiful tapestry that will move you and your guests and make you feel like you are doing something capital "I" Important. Jen's passion for what she does for her people is truly a gift and we count ourselves so lucky to be a part of it."
"There are no words to describe how amazing Jen is. My new husband and I were blown away by her depth of character and her ability to create magic with the words she chose and the energy and conviction with which she spoke them. She lovingly crafted a ceremony that perfectly fit my husband's and my spiritual beliefs and all of this with three weeks notice! She gave us thought provoking questions that helped us write our own vows and even found a beautiful ritual that included our entire community! We are so grateful for what she has done for us! Standing there before our friends and family and speaking our vows to each other wove a spell around all of us and is something we have taken into our journey of marriage. It feels like a strong fabric, tying us together with Jen's blessing and our intentions. She made our wedding. We are so deeply touched and honored that she was our officiant! She touches lives!"
