Meet Creator Sarah Ritchie

Wedding officiant Sarah Ritchie created Love is a Small Word to offer you all the essential information needed to make your New York Wedding Ceremony a magnificent and truly meaningful experience.

Sarah is a Non-Denominational Minister and has respect for all faiths. She has a broad understanding of wedding traditions from various faith and religious traditions, as well as wedding customs from cultures around the world.

She’s received diplomas from the Celebrant Foundation & Institute, USA, where she now serves as a faculty member.
She lives in New York City, but brings with her a hospitality that she attributes to her home, Oklahoma. In addition to this work that she adores, she devotes herself to a variety of charities on issues relating to education, children, health, and the arts.

Should you select her to officiate your wedding, she will make a donation to a charity of your choice, following the wedding. Sarah can’t think of a better way to honor your new marriage. For her, this is a small way of “giving back” for the privilege of working with you at this milestone in your life, as well as the many gifts she has received over the years.
