My name is Bonnie McCarthy
and I specialize in writing and performing ceremonies in other than church
settings. I am an ordained, nondenominational,
interfaith minister who would be honored to create, or help you create, your
perfect ceremony. Whether you choose to have your ceremony in a home or
elsewhere, indoors or outdoors, formal or informal, my goal is to insure that
the atmosphere is stress free and intimate.
Welcoming All Marriages:
Your wedding is an
expression of who you are as a couple and deserves to be exactly what you want
it to be. Since 2001,
I have been writing and
officiating specialty weddings including spiritual, religious, civil, Celtic,
handfastings, and other unique celebrations.
after you contact me, we will arrange a personal meeting to become acquainted
and start to create your ceremony. We will stay in touch until your ceremony is
finished to your total satisfaction. I also offer standard versions, which we
can easily personalize. I organize rehearsals and joyfully officiate at
ceremonies. After the wedding, I will give you the booklet from which I prepared
and performed your ceremony.
A baptism is often more
than a spiritual dedication of a child or an adult. It is a family ritual in
which the parents, godparents, and extended family pledge their mutual support
to one another. I offer a traditional Christian baptismal dedication as well as
a Celtic Christian baptismal dedication. I provide a Certificate of Baptism and
a copy of the ceremony in booklet format.
A life celebration can be
any gathering, large or small, to honor the living or the deceased. It may be
the renewal of vows, the marking of a special anniversary, the remembrance of a
departed loved one, or any other special gathering of family and friends. A life
celebration is anything and everything. I create a booklet of the ceremony as my
gift to you.
My fee is based on the services I am asked to perform and the distance I

very helpful in planning the ceremony. She offered a very clear direction as to
the ceremony itself. She seemed to read our minds in regards to the actual vows
and spoke exactly what we had communicated. She truly offered a Ceremony from
We had a very good experience
with Bonnie. She worked with us on our ceremony until it was exactly what we
wanted. She went out of her way to make our special ceremony absolutely perfect
in every way. It truly was the highlight of our wedding day, and we would
recommend her to anyone.
