Weddings, Ceremonies and Special Events

What do you view as sacred and celebrate in your life? Do you take the time to pause from your regular activities to respect and connect with your inner and outer world?

At the Peaceful Spirit Enrichment Center we help you acknowledge the important events in your life. By creating ceremonies to celebrate, mourn or remember, we can inspire joyfulness or create an opportunity for healing. Life is worth celebrating, the family and friends we cherish, the milestone we achieve, the transitions we face and overcome. Together we will create the perfect ceremony that honors the most meaningful events in your life.

Family can be defined as the people we are related to by heritage and bloodlines, as well as the people who are brought together by conscious choice and common love. We are honored to help you create unique ceremonies and rituals that celebrate the wonderful ways we come together and the individuals of all ages who make our families possible.

Rites of passage ceremonies serve to support you as you recognize and take possession of your unique gifts and potential. It is a time of transformation and renewal. We will be your guide as you celebrate your triumphs and recognize your new path.


     Transition and Healing

Life Memorials ~ Divorce ~ Illness Recovery
Personal Achievement ~ Forgiveness ~ Reclaiming Life

Transition and healing can encourage acceptance of the past and mark the beginning of a commitment to live more fully. You are offered the opportunity to open your heart and honor the sacred in your progression through life. I can help you with a ceremony that marks the releasing of the old and the start of something new.


Whether you are getting married, dedicating a child or marking a life transition, each ceremony is custom-designed to your specific need. Melanie Dunlap uses her unique blend of training, life experience and intuition to get to know you and find out what memorable stories, readings, traditions, or family involvement will make your ceremony uniquely yours.

My husband and I have celebrated several of life’s moments at the Peaceful Spirit Center, from our wedding day, our oldest daughter’s dedication, to the passing of loved ones. We look forward to many more memorable moments at the Center especially as we just welcomed another little girl into the world.— Krista K.


Our goal is not to meet your expectations, but to exceed them in every way. We work from the heart to create and perform ceremonies that reflect you and your personality, values, ideas and beliefs. Everyone will have heartfelt memories that will last a lifetime.

Fees are structured to include all the elements necessary in designing your ceremony, while also working within your budget. Some considerations include location, date, travel, time to write and officiate your ceremony, guiding participants and coordinating other service providers. Because each ceremony is uniquely designed fees start at $300. A 50% deposit is required to hold your ceremony date and time. Initial consultations are always FREE.
