Weddings

A wonderful celebration of Life...

...to witness and participate in the Union of two Beings making the Promise to walk Life together, to share and to support each other.....to be, plan and move into each moment with wonderment and determination to enjoy Life to the fullest.   It is truly a Blessing to find the person you love to share the precious moments with.

I have chosen a path which includes Meditation, Nature, and Self Expression.
I would love to assist you in creating your beautiful and memorable ceremony.




It is always nice to meet in person but if you can't be here we can always talk by phone or email.

"Our ceremony was an absolutely beautiful occasion enhanced by Sofanya's words. Her warm and generous manner assures you that she is truly there for you. Having her officiate was wonderful because she took the time to get to know us as individuals and as a couple. Her keen sense of artistry, knowing exactly what to say, was poetry. We would highly recommend anyone wanting to be married in the Big Sur area (or anywhere for that matter) to call upon Sofanya to officiate. - Julian and Lynette Tolentino, Big Sur

   



The ceremony that you helped us create, and that you nurtured into fruition, was more than either Jared or I had anticipated it would be. More fun, more interactive and more emotionally open. Neither he or I had anticipated such a remarkable outpouring of blessings from all of our loved ones that chose to bear witness. I really feel that their open attitude and emotional availability was intensified because of the mood and tone that you set. It would not have been what we had wanted without you involved.

For us as a couple the beginning of the weekend was sparked by the Essence Portrait that you created for us. We have it hanging as a centerpiece in our home now, a constant reminder of how we are connected. The experience to sit down with you and meditate into ourselves with art and symbolism was a healing enterprise certainly. So many people have commented on how lovely it is and we explain to them the process and give them your information. Hopefully some of those people might decide to roam up your direction and get one for themselves.

From: Fabienne (Mother of the Groom)
To: Sofanya

I just wanted to email you today to thank you again for the absolutely amazing ceremony you presided over for my Jared and Liberty last Saturday. In my entire life (and it’s pretty long) I have never attended a wedding with such heartfelt emotion pouring forth from the bride and groom. These two wonderful young people truly made their wedding personal, intimate, spiritual and filled with loving moments. Our family was thrilled with every second of the day. What a glorious weekend we all had in Big Sur – we will always cherish our days all together enjoying nature’s beauty and of course – the best wedding ever.

Sofanya – I cannot express to you how impressed I was with your peaceful and eloquent tone during the entire ceremony. I truly believe that your input was instrumental in their ceremony truly capturing the vision they had for so many months of preparation. They are amazing – but of course, I’am a bit biased as the Mom.
I have told everyone about the ceremony.

   
 

 

I can Officiate at your ceremony. I am also an artist and I have created a process call "Essence Portraits".
These portraits are a perfect way for us to get to know each other and derive
the most lovely and essential elements that connect, guide and inspire the two of you.
Please see my website for more details about the Essence Portraits...
