Dad’s passing was hard on all of us, but his decision to plan a life celebration ceremony ahead of time allowed our family and friends to come together in a unique way of his own choosing to grieve while celebrating all the joy he brought us rather then focus on mourning.”

Your questions answered

Life celebration ceremonies start at $250 and include working with a celebrant to plan, document, communicate, and deliver the ceremony. The actual cost could vary depending on how much customization and travel is required by the celebrant. Everything will be covered in the planning process so there won’t be any surprises.

Possibly, but not necessarily. Life celebrations can sometimes replace traditional funerals and sometimes be a great compliment to them.

The planning process can start any time, and can be a wonderful thing to do with someone while they’re still alive. Ideally we’ll work with the subject person while they’re still alive and can be part of the planning process, but we can also start working with their survivors after they’ve passed.  We typically start with a 15 to 30 minute phone meeting to discuss your needs and wants, and also to answer any questions you may have about working with us. Once you decide to plan a ceremony with us you will submit the initial ceremony planning form and make a reasonable deposit, and from there we’ll set up additional planning meetings as needed to get all the details right. Then, on the day of the ceremony, our celebrant will warmly, compassionately, and professionally deliver the amazing ceremony you helped plan. You can pay the balance when it’s done.

Yes, when available our celebrants are ready and willing to support families wherever they may be. Services provided outside of our SE Michigan/NW Ohio home region will require that clients cover all reasonable travel costs.

They can be, or they can not be, depending on the client. We serve families of all spiritual perspectives or religious faiths and will create and deliver services that honor virtually any respectful and reasonable belief system.

Let us help you grieve well and balance mourning the loss of a loved one while celebrating a life well lived
