Rhode island was known, in Colonial times, as The Place of the Otherwise Minded. We were the first colony to welcome and accept all religions and faiths to our shores. WEDDING PARTY NEWPORT carries on that illustrious tradition.
I became an ordained non-denominational minister in 1995, dedicated to offering weddings and life transforming services which express every couple's unique passion and energy.
I have had the honor of presiding at weddings from Vermont to Florida. Weddings have been performed at some of Newport's most beautiful destinations; Breton Point, Easton's Beach Rotunda, Newport Yachting Center, The Edward King House, Belle Mer, Gooseberry Beach, and Castle Hill.
Ceremonies have also been performed at The Carnegie Center in Washington, DC, Von Trapp Family Lodge in Vermont, Fort Barton in Tiverton, RI, Palm Beach in Florida, Colt State Park in Bristol, RI.
Whether you choose a simple backyard wedding with a BarBQue, at the family farm, a wedding on a rock just off shore from Atlantic Beach Club(because that is where you celebrated your proposal), on a boat like The Adirondack or dressed up in Militia garb or as a Knight and his lady at King Richard's Faire (because you are re-enactors), I believe that however and wherever you seek to express LOVE is a SACRED PLACE and I am ready to help you express your Unique Soul Vision.
My fee for service includes creating the ceremony of your dreams. Each ceremony I create is a unique expression of your personal story and journey towards Love. I can help you write your vows, find the perfect destination and put you in touch with helpful support, from music to gifts. Check out my Links Page for referrals for everything from destinations to florists, bakery to music.
Fees range from $200 to $400 complexity of the ceremony and includes a free introductory meeting, creating your unique ceremony, rehearsal, actual ceremony and taking care of filing appropriate paper work. All you have to do is enjoy your special day! (Travel and lodging outside of Rhode Island may be negotiated on a case by case basis.)
I can be reached at Wedding Party Newport , 401-847-6551.

WHAT MY COUPLES SAY ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE:
"Dear Cris, I don't think we'll be able to thank you enough for the beautiful ceremony. It was my favorite part of the entire day. Thank you so much for making our day so special and memorable.
Much Love, Nikki and Domenic"
" Cris, Thank you so much for performing a beautiful ceremony on such short notice for us! I especially loved the Celtic warrior blessing. Love Always, Heather, Alex & Madison"
"Dear Cris, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for doing our ceremony-when Bill and I first started talking about who should do it I thought of you right away--you've been totally great about helping us figure out what we want, and giving us ideas to work from. It's nice to know the person doing the ceremony personally-it makes it that much more special. Love and hugs Kim and Bill"
