Rite of Passage


Kristabeth of Rites of Passage is an inclusive officiant who works with couples to design a one-of-a-kind wedding ceremony personalized to them and their love story.

In Their Own Words:

Your wedding day is an opportunity to celebrate your unique relationship. At Rites of Passage, we work with you to design a wedding ceremony personalized to you and your love story.

I have officiated dozens of weddings throughout New England over the past twenty years, from micro-weddings and elopements to large, formal events. I have experience with a variety of ceremonies, including: religious, interfaith, secular, and spiritual-but-not-religious ceremonies.

I specialize in working with couples who want a one-of-a-kind wedding ceremony.

In designing your unique wedding ceremony, I will spend time with you to get to know your values, traditions, and dreams. I will help you choose or write your vows and guide you in selecting readings and rituals to reflect your unique style.

At Rites of Passage, we offer wedding and elopement packages with a focus on creating a one-of-a-kind ceremony just for you.  Our packages include: personal consultations, custom-designed ceremony, draft review, and rehearsal attendance (if applicable).

Favorite Moment During a Wedding: My favorite moments are the little, serendipitous moments that happen during a wedding ceremony: a special look; a tear; laughter.

Favorite Vermont Activity:  One of my favorite things to do is get a hot chocolate or a maple creemee (depending on the season) and walk along the waterfront.

We booked Kristabeth for our October wedding. Being that we live out of state, Kristabeth made it very easy to plan via video chat. She spent months getting to know us and made us very comfortable on our wedding day. She tailored our ceremony perfectly to our personalities and relationship. We were extremely happy with what she was able to create and made for a wonderful event!
