Love Bound Handfasting

And more testimonials...

As your special day's officiant, you may be sure that I would oversee your ceremony --- whether it be a secular service, handfasting, renewal of your vows or same-sex marriage --- in a loving and unbiased manner without prejudice or judgment.

I am flexible, fun-loving, and most of all, a hopeless romantic who enjoys what I do!

So, are you ready to "tie the knot"? If so, contact me for a free consultation! I look forward to hearing from you!

"You are so wonderful, magik and amazing! And you really should charge more for your services too! You are way underpriced for the amazing service you offer. We cant thank you enough for driving over 50 miles to our Rehersal dinner. Wow! Thank you! You were so very helpful during the chaos of trying to get everything ready for our special day, and you helped us put together a wonderful, personal ceremony too. We were able to combine our different beliefs in a way that is special and sacred to us both, and do it in a way that was inspiring and acceptable to all our guests. You looked beautiful, and presentable on our wedding day, and did a great job as everyone could hear you despite it being a breezy outside ceremony. You added the right amount of love, humor, and inspiration to our day. What a wonderful and genuine human being you are! Brightest Blessings to you always!" ~Wendie and Frank

"Cindi performed the wedding ceremony for me and my sweetheart of 5+ years. We are a practical couple, rather than a romantic one, so she chose a ceremony and vows that suited us perfectly. It was an absolutely lovely ceremony that had us laughing and crying at the end. I'll never forget Jim's words, "With this wing, I thee wed..." Yes, he really said "wing." It was just the levity we needed to break up the tearful, but happy moment." Dana Neuts

"Cindi...... What a perfect day we had! Thank you so much for everything! I have never imagined such a beautiful mystical (the rain made it even more so) ceremony.... the words were/are and forever will be so real. Nate and I will never forget that day..... thank you for being there with us. :) Blessings to you!!! "- Danielle Palumbo

Hello!  My name is Cindi LaMar and I officiate handfastings and traditional 'religion-neutral' wedding ceremonies.

What is Handfasting? Handfasting is a betrothal or wedding ritual in which the couple's clasped hands are tied together by a cord or ribbon -- hence the phrase "tying the knot". More and more, this ancient and richly spiritual tradition has found it's place with couples today who wish to be united in love and life with a Handfasting ceremony.

After all, one of your life's most important days is your wedding. It is a day both personal and sacred to you and the one you love, and shouldn't be dictated upon by the so-called 'norms' of what others might expect of you.
