I am Kristine Bentz: a daughter, sister, friend; nature, horse and music lover; yogi and Interfaith Minister. I listen. I enjoy storytelling. I connect and uplift people through ceremony experiences that are full of life. I compose and lead wholehearted ceremonies to reflect my clients’ stories, beliefs and values. (Not mine.) Why? Because it is my calling: what I was put on this earth to do! When we co-create a ceremony together, I custom-write it only for you — completely based upon what matters most to you and your beloved.
I dare to believe ceremonies are meant to be ENJOYED! A ceremony reflecting who you are invites your guests in to truly being present and sets the tone for the entire celebration.
I write this blog to offer relevant resources for creating meaningful ceremony experiences: ranging from weddings, commitment ceremonies, and vow renewals to other celebrations of LOVE.
Please join the conversation! You are visiting, I hope, because you seek something out of the ordinary. You want to have a ceremony reflecting your stories, beliefs and values.
I can help you achieve this.
I compose and lead ceremonies of many kinds for couples to celebrate their love: weddings, same-sex ceremonies, vow renewals and anniversary celebrations. I also work with families at the beginning of life to mark births or adoptions and at the end of life, to remember and celebrate a person well. When I work with a family, I hope to become their family celebrant, the person to whom they turn when they mark meaningful life milestones.
I love living in the Sonoran Desert. I enjoy watching the desert sunrises and sunsets with my beloved, Alan and we savor time outdoors whenever we can. I am an equestrian and adore my white mare Bianca. We are blessed with many good two and four-legged friends, with whom we ride the trails of the Tanque Verde Wash together. I also love to sing with my sisters and brothers in the Tucson Threshold Choir.
