My name is Alise Snyder
I am a Certified Lifecycle Celebrant,
Maine Wedding Officiant, and
Hand made Fire Starters for a Unity Ritual
I live on a small farm in Southern Maine with my husband of 29 years, 3 dogs, 2 cats, a horse, and a mini donkey named Michael.
I love (besides my family and pets): hanging with my kids, traveling, reality tv on Monday nights, a great glass of wine, all types of music, going to antique fairs, sappy/cheesy romance movies from the '90s and 2000s, vintage clothing, chocolate cake and a sunny day spent at the beach.
I attend the Celebrant Institute in New York to learn the art of ritual creation and Wedding ceremony creation/officiating. I am a Maine Notary Pubic and ordained through the American Marriage Ministries enabling me to officiate just about anyplace in the United States.
As a Certified Lifecycle Celebrant and professional Maine wedding officiant, I feel continually blessed to be part of such a special day of a couple. I am a true romantic at heart and love every minute of a wedding ceremony, seeing the look in everyone's eyes when a couple begins their walk down the aisle (bigger tear-jerker moment), and as couples say their vows of love and commitment (biggest tear-jerker moment for me).
My hope as a wedding officiant and ceremony planner is to offer guidance and calm support to couples as they work through the process of planning a wedding together while helping them to honor the love between them as they experience the transition from one aspect of their lives into another, and sharing that experience with the people they love the most on their wedding day.
In the Spring of 2021, I will begin training to advance my Lifecycle Celebrant certifications to include: Funeral and Memorial Services, Pet Funeral and Memorial Service, Naming Ceremonies, and Divorce/Untying Ceremonies starting in the Fall of 2021.
