A More Perfect Union

Welcome to The Zen Bride

You are planning one of the biggest days of your life, things are going to get emotional. Are you going through a little bridal anxiety? Are you ready to embrace change? Is your engagement period what you thought it would be? Don’t worry, you’re not alone!

You are going through a life changing experience, therefore you need to be PRESENTĀ for it. Allow yourself to step back and take a breath. Heck, take three. Put on your comfy pants, cue the calming music andĀ get ready to not only accept, but CELEBRATE the amazing changes going on in your life!

The Zen Bride is a workshop giving brides-to-be an opportunity to breathe and recognize the amazing rite of passage from engagement day to wedding day. Together we will:

– de-stress with some mediation and yoga
– share our stories
– validate our feelings and emotions
– discuss our changes of identity

With strength and confidence we will then create and perform a meaningful ritual leaving you relaxed and refreshed and ready to complete the journey towards wedded bliss. These sessions can be one-on-one with me or feel free to gather your bridesmaids or close friends to have them help celebrate YOU.

Upcoming Workshops:

Workshops are scheduled upon interest, need and availability. If you need a little ZEN added to your wedding planning and marriage prep, let me know.


“When we share the stories of our initiations and transformations, we inform each other about the journey. By telling our own story, we see things we didn’t see before. And by listening empathically to someone else’s story, imagining ourselves in her shows, our world is expanded.”
– Abigail Brenner, Women’s Rites of Passage
