Hi! My name is Shanna Carlile-Roy, but you can call me Blu. I have lived in Humboldt County for 20 or so years. I fell in love with it’s beauty, creativity and people. There’s nothing more romantic than being in nature with someone you love. I was married here and now I am performing ceremonies here.

Whether it’s a vow renewal, commitment ceremony or marriage, it’s all about love. I will work with you to create the ceremony that will reflect your personal relationship. Themed wedding, costumed affair, LGBTQ, elopement, on a boat, you name it. I am game. I will work with you and your budget to make your ceremony everything you have hoped for. I am certified with American Marriage Ministries.

I am Agnostic and will perform a ceremony with your choice of religious or non-religious beliefs incorporated. I support same sex marriages and non traditional unions. You can have your ceremony any length you wish and include any ritual you like. I am open minded and accomodating. It’s your special day.

I have experience speaking in front of audiences and writing. I performed a wedding ceremony for a couple at the same beach where my marriage took place. I found my calling as a ceremony officiant. I have volunteered for several organizations including Donate Life, Humboldt Literacy Project, The Humboldt Edge and AHHA. I have a passion for art and creating. My life is shared with my wonderful husband, daughter, our dog and two cats. Let’s meet and talk.
