Traditional and Gay, Lesbian, Same-Sex Weddings, Syracuse, Ithaca, and other locations in NY
Welcome to my wedding ministry website; and congratulations on your upcoming marriage! Make yourselves comfortable, and soon you'll feel right at home here. I am an interfaith minister and spiritual counselor and specialize in traditional and Gay, Lesbian, Same-Sex Weddings, in Syracuse, Ithaca, and other locations in NY. My expertise lies in the ability to work with diverse populations in order to formulate different and unique ceremonies. I am available to all faiths (or non-denominational) and religious backgrounds, and can perform simple civil ceremonies if that's your choice. I welcome same sex couples, and encourage those who may be without a typical worshipping community.
This is a process I want you to be involved in as well. You may create your own traditional, Gay, or Lesbian, wedding ceremony if desired. I have plenty of sample ceremonies from which to choose if you need help with this part. Since this is your special day, feel free to leave it up to me to do most of the work here. Much of this can be accomplished via internet and phone conversations. If possible, I like to meet with couples at least once prior to the wedding rehearsal to respond to questions in person.
I am located in central, upstate NY, near Syraqcuse and Ithaca and have no issues with traveling throughout the state or to neighboring states. The setting is entirely your choice, as is the formality of your ceremony. I have performed very small weddings, including intimate groups...as well as larger weddings with more attendants. If your choice is to have several faiths represented within the wedding ceremony that is also welcomed.
Please try to contact me as soon as you have considered a date so that I am able to add you to my calendar. Then any decisions we make together can be determined after we've saved that initial date.
My preferred email address is: Pastor.Laureen.B@gmail.com, and phone: 607.280.1199.
I look forward to meeting you, working with you, and assisting you in making this the most special day in your lives!
Blessings to you,
Rev. Laureen Batsford
