Nicolle makes your ceremony special!

I have been officiating weddings for over 25 years. I might possibly have been the first female ordained in the area, and was  the first to offer an option between traditional church weddings and a courthouse wedding.

I bring gentleness, poise, experience, and calmness to your exciting day.  Whether you wish to elope in the mountains, or barefoot by the river, have a small ceremony with your dogs as the witnesses, or celebrate with hundreds of your closest friends~ I will help you create the perfect ceremony, coordinate the bridal party, and assist with the day of timeline.

 

If you would like to learn more or schedule a consult for your special day, please call or email me!

Testimonials

We absolutely cannot thank you enough for helping make our wedding absolutely perfect. We couldn’t have done it without your help and guidance. I know for me you kept me and everyone around calm and focused. Thank you, thank you a thousands times
~Suzy and Tracy

We felt like Nicolle was not only an officiant…but a friend. She took our vision for our special day and made it a reality. She thoroughly paid attention to details and genuinely cared about our wishes. I cannot say enough good things about Nicolle and feel so blessed that we found her!
~Jennifer and Travis

Nicolle has a wonderfully kind and calming presence. My husband and I were fortunate to have her marry us. She gave many options and insight to be able to really personalize our ceremony. She even fit me in the day of my wedding for hair and makeup. I would highly recommend Nicolle for any of her services. She is extremely professional, a true master of her trade, and a beautiful soul to know.
~Michelle and Christopher

Nicolle officiated our wedding at Redfish Lake in Stanley, ID.  Nicolle is just a joy to speak to and work with. She gave us so many ceremony options to use for direction which was really helpful for us. She edited what we gave her into a beautifully, cohesive ceremony. The real test of her skill was day-of – it rained through our entire ceremony and Nicolle handled it like a champion! She kept a stunning smile, and even made some on-the-spot edits to make the ceremony work better for everyone sitting in the rain! She’s extremely thoughtful and brings a lovely energy to the ceremony!
~ Lillian and Joel

Nicolle is the most beautiful soul you’ll ever meet!  We chose to write our own ceremony and she helped give resources and made everything run smoothly! All of her ceremonies are as unique as the couple she is working with! She comforts you and brings you a sense of ease,  she is just all around so prepared for anything that comes up! She was there for us at every step of the way!  I’ve never met someone with more compassion or a kinder heart than Nicolle! 
~Tori and Keenan

Nicolle  is such a peaceful beautiful soul, and we both felt so lucky to have found Nicolle to be a part of our wedding. From beginning to end, Nicolle was so helpful and always checking in to see if I needed any help. I feel so grateful for her, and also got to have some Reiki sessions done prior to our wedding. Her space and presence is so peaceful and nurturing. I am truly so grateful that we are now friends as I feel that we truly met for a reason.
~Jenna and Breck

We got married on 2.22.22, with Nicolle acting as officiant. She was wonderful..
She brought so much meaning with her calm, peaceful manner. The ceremony was moving, and brought tears out of one of our witnesses. ? Thank you, Nicolle. I married the love of my life; and you made it especially memorable. 
~Mandy and Scott

Nicolle officiated our wedding ceremony and was absolutely perfect for us! She thoughtfully communicated with us along the way to bring out the visions that were closest to our hearts, and together we created the most beautiful, heartfelt and joyous ceremony that was the true to our souls and our unique love. My wife and I are so grateful for her presence there!
~Kayla and Rachel

When choosing an officiant, we were looking for someone with a warm personality who could perform a short, sweet ceremony in front of the Boise Depot. We got that and so much more with Nicolle. We met with Nicolle several times to discuss what we wanted our ceremony to look like. She was always helpful and willing to listen to our desires. Our wedding day was perfect and we are so grateful to Nicolle for making everything run smoothly.
~Kelsy and Casey

We felt like Nicolle was not only an officiant…but a friend. She took our vision for our special day and made it a reality. She thoroughly paid attention to details and genuinely cared about our wishes. Nicolle did everything she could to make our day special…even driving to Stanley to make it happen! We feel so blessed that we found her!
~Jennifer and

Nicolle was phenomenal. She officiated our elopement in Stanley, Idaho in November 2020 and we could not have been happier. My husband and I both lived out of state (drove to ID).  We met her virtually to create the ceremony. Despite communicating only virtually until the day-of, we felt like we really got to know her quickly and she, us, to the point were felt super comfortable with her. Nicolle is so incredibly kind and warm and easy to work with. That kindness and warmth came across when she performed the ceremony. It felt like she took the time and cared to really get to know our vibe and what was truly important to us.
~Cam and Tim

Nicolle was a pleasure to work with! We loved being able to customize our non-religious ceremony. She is very knowledgeable about every aspect of the wedding industry as well, and has numerous contacts or recommendations.
~Jodi and Jim

Nicolle was absolutely amazing!! She officiated our wedding and we could not have been happier. She was very helpful and eased our stress quite a bit. She really told our story in such a beautiful way.
~Becca and Michael

Nicolle met with us many times prior to ceremony. We used her expertise in dealing with every aspect of our wedding from flower arrangements to centerpieces. Our ceremony was truly made just for us. She is dedicated to making the day perfect!

What is Humanist Celebrant and Officiant?

A Humanist Celebrant adheres to Humanist ethics and principles, which assert that all adults, whatever their religious preference or sexual orientation, have the right to form committed loving relationships, and to acknowledge the significance of those relationships with ceremony and celebration.  Sacred Mariposa is LGBTQ and transgender friendly.

Humanists believe that we are personally responsible for the lives we live.  The group itself does not share one particular belief about the divine;  each member holds their own beliefs about religion. The belief we do share is the faith that we are all part of humankind, and we all share this existence on earth. No matter what we believe about the hereafter, we have to live right now; help others, be honest, be fair, live with integrity, ethics, and morals, be kind, protect the earth and all living things on it.

“The root of all religion is love, and that supersedes everything else.”
~ Reverend Susanna Macomb
