Weddings By the Sea: in Mendocino and Mexico


Here's a short video of Nansee talking about her wedding ceremonies


“We meet by the Sea to exchange our sacred vows and join our lives in love and gratitude……”

It is a great honor to perform a wedding ceremony. Your wedding will reflect your vision as a couple. It is an opportunity to publicly declare your love for one another and to touch and engage your community and family in support and celebration.

I will work with you to find just the right sentiments for this important rite of passage, starting with a conversation about your vision and needs. Each couple is unique and deserves to have their wedding day reflect that uniqueness. 
I can supply you and your beloved with a sample outline and words to get you started thinking about the tone and style of your ceremony. Throughout the process I will assist you both as you to bring your vision into clear focus. 
I am a non-denominational minister, ordained by the Church of Divine Man, Berkeley, California. I have performed heartfelt weddings, commitment ceremonies, same-sex weddings and vow renewals on the Mendocino Coast since 1983. I also perform bilingual weddings for Spanish-speaking couples. Recently I have expanded my wedding services to Mexico. 

Vow Renewals

A new marriage has its unique vision, challenges and benefits. A seasoned marriage emerges from shared experience transformed. At your vow renewal, you have the opportunity to lay new foundation from a deeper understanding of yourselves and one another, and express your love and gratitude.

Kind Words

"Dear Nancy: The almighty powers shined down on us last Sunday, when they brought us YOU. Your presence, your words, your spirit and heart, made the wedding what it was; a sense of true union. Our endless thanks to you for doing it so lovingly, and helping us get to the deepest part of ourselves."
