Respectful Ceremonies will provide the most meaningful ceremony for your or your loved one’s life event.

My name is Tess Veloso. I am a graduate of the Celebrant Institute and Foundation, with the coveted designation of Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant®. I am trained in the art of ritual and ceremony and will create for you a ceremony that tells the story you want told, in the way you want it to be told.

Many people are looking for ways to mark their life milestones – weddings, vow renewals, deaths, life transitions – in a way that is personalized and sincere – ceremonies that kindle joy and that honor them

or their loved ones.

I will meet with you, discover what is important to you, and create a way to mark the event that you will remember forever. You will have input and full approval of what is created and will be gifted with a copy of the ceremony when it is completed.

Whatever orientation – secular, spiritual, interfaith, intercultural, LBGTQ+ – your ceremony will reflect what is important to you and your loved one.

Let me help you express what you deeply feel. Please contact me to schedule a meeting or to ask further questions. I look forward to meeting you and creating a ceremony you will never forget.

Respectful Ceremonies serves the Baltimore Metropolitan Area and the entire State of Maryland.
