Ceremonies in Nature since 2002, offering superior service at a fair price to all throughout New Mexico and more.

Get Married in Truth or Consequences!  

If you get married in the city limits, that's what it will say on your marriage license, no matter what county you obtain it in.

Reverend Celeste has officiated more than 300 legal wedding ceremonies, vow renewals and commitment ceremonies since being ordained in 2002.  She believes EVERY couple deserves a ceremony that reflects their wishes and desires, their beliefs and lifestyle.
 
Celeste has officiated at ceremonies as many as five hours drive from her home base in the hot springs town of Truth or Consequences, situated between Caballo Lake to the south and Elephant Butte Lake--New Mexico's largest--to the north.  For couples who want MORE than the ordinary ceremony, Celeste strives to provide superior service at a fair price to all.  She truly enjoys working with couples to help create and orchestrate memorable ceremonies that will have your guests complimenting you throughout the reception and give you fond memories for decades to come!  She still hears from several couples she married years ago when she was on the central coast of California (she been in New Mexico since 2006).

Celeste frequently helps orchestrate and officiate at more elaborate weddings, vow renewals and commitment ceremonies, both here in Sierra County and as far away as you desire!  Many of her personalized ceremonies include a unique optional ritual, such as a Past/Present/Future or Family Sand-blending into your chosen Unity Vase, which you take home as a beautiful keepsake of the day for display in your home. 

Other optional rituals include Hand-fasting, Unity Candle (indoor ceremonies only), Ribbons of Hopes & Wishes, Wine-sharing/Sharing of Drink, drawing of the circle of life (Earth-based religions), Native American rituals or whatever you desire!  

If you want to elope or have a simple impromptu ceremony, Celeste will chat with you very briefly so she can use wording that would best suit your beliefs.  We suggest turning it into a mini-vacation/honeymoon by enjoying one or more of the places you can soak in the natural hot springs mineral water or take some time at the lake!

There are great day trips to be had around Sierra County, too.  Visit www.sierracountynewmexico.info for more on that.

Please email waterdancer52@gmail.com with info about your ceremony date and location, or call Celeste's cell phone at 575-740-3889; please leave a detailed message and repeat your phone number clearly and she'll return your call as soon as possible.

Celeste's notes about the photos viewable by clicking one of the links on the right:  (First off, please feel free to ask me about any of the photos!  For example, about the ritual being depicted or where the ceremony location was.)  My website crashed so I am having to start over on uploading photos.  You can click on either More Photos to view a few here, or click on the areas below to view albums I am creating on snapfish.com.  You can also view a music slideshow that I put together for a couple who included a Marriage Labyrinth in their Sandia Mountains wedding, using the photos we took, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2c2tHq16-0c.  [I don't want to delete this text, but the photos mentioned in the rest of this text are not here yet.]  There are photos taken from a variety of locations, including a ceremony at a B & B in the Gila National Forest.  The one with the couple and me in tee-shirts was from a ceremony on New Year's Eve day at the Red Pelican; the couples works for the San Antonio Spurs and their boss wanted them to get a photo of all of us wearing Spurs tee-shirts!  The little Treasure Chest with rings in it belongs to me and is available for couples to use if they are including a ritual where a table is needed (as an option to having someone hold the rings).
         As you continue on to page 2, you'll see photos of ceremonies from Elephant Butte Lake, Ralph Edwards Park, Caballo Lake, a mountaintop outside of Alamogordo only accessible by 4-wheel drive, Dripping Springs outside of Las Cruces, along with some actual Unity Vases.  Then page 3 has more from Elephant Butte Lake (Winding Roads Day Use Area is a very popular location for weddings locally), a commitment ceremony in Carlsbad (with them pouring sands into their Unity Vase), and a wedding on the pier at Riverbend Hot Springs in Truth or Consequences.
