It is important to me, that I pour into the world – exactly what I want my children to inherit; joy, support, love, and an unwavering reminder that they are deserving of grand celebrations!

First and foremost, my goal is to create meaningful and genuine connections through the art of storytelling and radical supprt. Whether I am working with a business owner, sharing in Spiritual practice, or guiding a newly engaged couple to the altar – I believe that all people deserve to have their experiences honored with reverence, joy, and profound love.

Since the Supreme Court ruling in 2015, on same-sex marriage, I have worked to create space for couples to celebrate and honor their most sacred moments as a Professional Wedding Officiant and Pre-Marital Coach with Waning Moon Weddings by LaToya. I also teach and share Spiritual practices and lessons that encourage my clients to explore their existence and connections with Spirit beyond what can be seen.

Because WMWeddings was created on a foundation of diversity, acceptance, and inclusion - I quickly became the Officiant and Minister for couples of varying religious backgrounds, abilities, gender expressions, ages, ethnicities, etc.

When I'm not writing for weddings or serving spiritually, I help event professionals align their purpose with their business practices and content messaging – ensuring that their clients and communities know exactly who they are, what their brand stands for, and how they can help.

By helping event professionals lean into the power of their own story, they are able to build brand trust and recognition in the industry as pros who genuinely care about making an impact in people’s lives… forever.
