Greetings! Thank you for viewing my fundraiser!
My name is Cassidy Leigh and I am a wedding officiant, ordained as clergy through the Universal Life Church, in the Southern Maine area. I began performing wedding ceremonies just for fun and because it sure makes a great wedding gift! (What better present to bestow upon family and friends than to marry them to their true love?) I came to truly enjoy it, as it shows in my performance, and word of mouth spread which landed me even more beautiful weddings to officiate! At this point, I can say with confidence that I am experienced and well versed as an officiant enough to begin to charge for the service and possibly make a small business for myself. (Who doesn't want to work doing what they love? I happen to love people in love!) I am ready to actively seek out clientelle and get my good name out there! While I am not new at performing wedding ceremonies, I am new to actively promoting myself and have been considering what I must do, some of which requires some funding that I do not have at the moment.
What Your Donation Will Go Toward (at base level):
- Printing up business cards, other tangible promotional materials.
- Getting my business website Live. (already designed by moi, not a lot of tweaking needed.)
- Adertising in bigger forums.
- Ordering necessary paper work and certificates from my church.
- Gas money for when I am actively promoting or performing.
- Professional attire.
- Buying some time to actively work on everything that must be done!
...and this isn't all! I hope to some day expand this business to include various friends and colleaguess who provide wedding services (bands, photographers, DJs, stylists, caterers, venue providers, other officiants/JPs) and create one big glroious network that strictly deals in the happiest days of our lives! So I do have bigger goals for this project... Please help me make the first step!
"I am honored to deliver the perfect ceremony for a couple to represent the joining of their lives to one another and it shows in my performance! Every single wedding, no matter how simple or elaborate, will always be constructed with the same amount of concise care and delivered in an enthusiastic and professional manner. I will work with every couple personally to determine what works best for them and my role can be as involved or detached as required. I will recite verbatim what the couple wishes me to say or take hold of the reigns and design the spoken ceremony myself if desired. I take pride in being flexible, versatile and most importantly, a skilled and eloquent speaker with a voice that will be heard by all, even without a microphone on a windy day by the ocean. It is with utmost joy and genuine excitement that I officiate such ceremonies and will be happy to enact yours, as well!
