About Kathy & Sierra Desert Ceremonies

I first came to Arizona for a visit when I was 9 years old and

remember visiting Tombstone.  Tombstone is still a favorite

venue: weddings there are so Western!  I just LOVE wide open spaces.


My husband and I moved here just for that reason: great views, beautiful

mountains!  (Great wedding scenes!)


When I retired from 40 years of a nursing career,  I missed the

excitement of meeting new people.   A chance encounter opened up a new

opportunity for me:  One day I was asked by a  friend (who was a Wedding

Officiant) to attend a ceremony with her in a couple's back yard. I was SO

impressed by the beauty of the moment: simple, elegant, intimate. I was hooked!


I am ordained by the Universal Life Church, authorized to perform legal ceremonies in all 50 states of the US. I started in June of 2015 officiating at weddings and after over 90 weddings, I am still amazed at the satisfaction of this work.  I am a professional: organizied and efficient.


The best moment for me is sharing in the special day of each couple.  Each wedding is unique.  I listen to your story and develop a ceremony designed for JUST the two of you.  I will work to create a beautiful ceremony that unites different spiritual/religious faiths, cultures or lifestyles.  I welcome same sex couples.


I am flexible and have the resources to quickly put together a ceremony that fulfills the your unique needs.


At Sierra Desert Ceremonies, I know there are many considerations that influence the type of ceremony that a couple may choose.  I understand Military commitments.  I honor all couple's beliefs whether they be religious or non-religious.   You are the designer of your ceremony and I will help put it together.
