    Irene was the celebrant for a celebration of life service my family planned for a dear friend. After our very first conversation, I felt that she was the right person to enlist. She was very personable, warm, and I could sense her calm manner. She gave me a clear plan of the shape that the service would take, yet was open to our ideas as well. After filling out a questionnaire and talking with family and close friends, Irene wrote a beautiful tribute that really honored the spirit of the person whose life we were celebrating. I felt a great sense of relief knowing that Irene would help us plan the service and guide us through the actual program as the celebrant. No one in my family felt comfortable or qualified to take this on ourselves, nor did we have any religious community to turn to. Irene is a certified life celebrant, which made me feel that much more confident that she was the right person for us. Her professionalism and experience were evident throughout the entire process, and I can't thank her enough for helping my family and I through an extremely difficult time.

    Irene performed an intimate wedding ceremony for us at our home, while we were surrounded by our immediate family. She put together a beautiful ceremony piece incorporating information she gathered from the questionnaire she had us fill out beforehand. We were very pleased with how everything went. Irene was flexible with our request regarding time frame (we hoped to have a sunset ceremony, but we were not sure if we’d need to move the time if the fog rolled in). She was open to changing the time if needed. She was professional and friendly, and we all enjoyed chatting with her before and after the ceremony. She was responsive and timely when we contacted her with questions, and she sent us over a draft of the ceremony write up to review, and make edits if we wished, before the event. Highly recommend!

    After 5 long years of extensive remodel work on our home and many challenges along the way, we decided to do a house blessing to acknowledge the end of our hard work and mark a new beginning. Coincidentally, our 10 year wedding anniversary fell on the same day as our 5 year home purchase anniversary, so we thought about combining a house blessing with a renewal of our vows. It was as if it were meant to be that it only took a few minutes of searching online to find Ceremonies and Celebrations and realize that we could indeed do both. After speaking with Irene, and a very thorough conversation about our past obstacles and current objectives, she assured us that she would be able to create an extremely personalized and special ceremony for us. And did she ever! Irene not only did just that, but the events of that day have stayed with us. Irene was able to help us move past all the stress and challenges of our remodel and focus on enjoying our home and our life together. We can't thank Irene enough for our special day and how it impacted our lives.

    Irene was like family! We used Ceremonies & Celebrations for my mother's "Celebration of Life". Irene did not know my Mom, but in great detail, she interviewed, and listened to stories of her life. By the date of the celebration, she drew a beautiful picture of my Mom, and her life. Irene, is kind, and considerate, and worth way more than she charges. Irene...Thank you so much! Greg Young

    You can't go wrong with having Irene perform your marriage ceremony. She's amazing ! Truly a natural one at this type of work. Her professionalism is an A plus . Outstanding in every aspect. I'm so thankful that we found her to perform our lovely ceremony. Thank you again Irene for making our day so special.
