Hand made Fire Starters for a Unity Ritual
My name is Alise Snyder
I am a Certified Lifecycle Celebrant,
Maine Wedding Officiant, and
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, and chocolate cake.
I decided to attend the Celebrant Institute in New York for formal ceremony creation and business training in addition to that I became a Maine Notary Pubic and ordained through the American Marriage Ministries. I offer my service of creating and officiating weddings to couples throughout Maine, New Hampshire, and just about anyplace else a fun couple wishes to be married.
As a Certified Lifecycle Celebrant and professional Maine wedding officiant, I feel continually blessed to be part of such a special day in the lives of a couple. I am a true romantic at heart and love every minute of a wedding ceremony including reading the couple's homework replies (a tear-jerker moment), seeing the look in everyone eyes when the bride enters (bigger tear-jerker moment), and as they 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 and sharing that with the people they love the most on their wedding day.
In October of 2020, 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 Spring of 2021.
