Melissa Smith, Ph.D.

Humanist Wedding Celebrant

Based in north Denver Metro Colorado, I craft and officiate personalized secular (non-religious) marriage and commitment ceremonies. Whether you are looking for something short and sweet or a longer and more elaborate ceremony, we'll work together to write a ceremony that captures your views on love, marriage, friendship, and family.

I proudly officiate weddings for couples of all gender identities and sexual orientations, and am most comfortable working with couples who view marriage as a partnership between equals.

A recent client said-

"We consider ourselves so lucky to have found Melissa! We were looking for an officiant who would help us create a wedding ceremony unique to us and Melissa more than delivered... She listed to all our rambling thoughts and offered organized, open-minded and nonjudgmental options for us to consider... It was clear, her only agenda was to help us make our ceremony exactly what we wanted."

Ceremony fees are typically $375 (see example contract). I also write ceremonies for couples who have a special someone to actually officiate the wedding (contact me for rates). Helping couples create a personal and memorable ceremony is my priority; no two ceremonies will ever be the same, whether it is just the couple and I or 200 guests. Since October 2011, I have happily officiated more than 60 weddings.

I am endorsed as a Humanist Celebrant by the Humanist Society (a non-profit corporation of the American Humanist Association) through a process equivalent to that of ordination in a traditional religious body.
