Hi! I'm Ruth! I want you to experience freedom.
I am a Civil Celebrant who designs and conducts non-religious wedding ceremonies for
people like you who just want to be who you are in the company of friends.
I know, right? Sounds like a no-brainer!
And yet..commercialism, external expectations, trendiness, and a general obsession with appearances have infused the marriage process
so completely that we've forgotten why we're having a wedding!
I want you to rediscover the reason you decided to say, "I do."
Contact me. Let's start the conversation.
Base price for a simple ceremony: $500. Click here and let me know your date and place!
If that's not you, you're still in the right place.
My Custom Ceremony design process focuses on a series of questions, conversations, interviews, and research to uncover your story.
I help you write your vows. I gather all the needed materials and coordinate with your venue, photography, and DJ/musicians.
The rehearsal is always included.
If you agree that your ceremony is the heart of your wedding, don't wait a second longer! CLICK TO REACH ME.
"Ruth was phenomenal from the start! I had no idea where to begin, but then I came across Ring And Rose on Lavender Listings. All I had to do was send Ruth a text and things began rolling from there. I didn’t have a venue in mind and she suggested we simply have a ceremony in our living room. It sounded a bit quirky, but I loved the idea. Ruth met with my now husband and I for coffee to whittle down the details and she asked us all the right questions. Talking to her was like talking to an old friend. She made great suggestions and made everything very comfortable for us and our family. Everything was lovely and I will definitely recommend Ring And Rose to anyone who needs an officiant for their wedding!" - Clayton B. and Jason C.
"Ruth created a ceremony for us that was perfect. She mixed a traditional Christian ceremony with touches of my family's Jewish ancestry, seamlessly. She spent hours getting to know us, so she could share some personal information during the ceremony. We both felt very comfortable with Ruth. I would recommend her for any type of ceremony you are looking for. She even made a decorative booklet of our ceremony for us to keep."- Heidi S. and Canyon U.
"Ring and Rose was an amazing wedding experience. Ruth spent time getting to know my husband and I and our ceremony was totally unique to us! She even let us include my dog in the special day. I would recommend to anyone. Ruth is really a 5-Star officiant! "- Anne C.
"Thank you! I had no idea where to start with our vows. I was afraid I would be crying so much I wouldn't be able to even say them. You really helped me understand how to do it. I'm so happy we did it the way we planned!" Sarah M.
