Memorials. Small Weddings.
The power of our life journeys and our stories stirs me. I listen with curiosity and interest. I write with depth, care, and insight. I draw on my skills as a researcher, writer, educator, and presenter to craft and officiate openhearted ceremonies where stories are shared, hearts are touched, and lives are connected.
I am a Life-Cycle Celebrant, professionally certified as a wedding officiant and a funeral/memorial officiant by the only U.S. qualifying organization, the Celebrant Foundation and Institute. Life-Cycle Celebrants are specialists who are ordained and trained to officiate ceremonies that acknowledge virtually every life event.
I am based in the San Luis Valley in south central Colorado and northern New Mexico. I live in Alamosa, Colorado and offer ceremonies west to South Fork and Creede, north to the Collegiate Peaks area and Salida, and east to La Veta. I am sometimes able to schedule ceremonies in the Denton, Houston, or Austin areas.
My ceremonies occur at a variety of venue locations: private homes, decks, and backyards; national parks and scenic forests, meadows, mountain, and river areas; interfaith, community chapels; historic hot springs, hotels, ranches, and restaurants; and other unique and beautiful venue locations.
We are a couple who became more and more devoted to each other over the first 21 years of our being together. We wanted to get married so that our family and friends would truly know how committed we are to each other. Patricia Eagle understood what we wanted our ceremony to express and she made our wedding a totally joyful and memorable experience for us and for our families who attended. Linda and I will both remember Patricia Eagle and her essential contribution to our wedding day with fondness, joy and gratitude! Charles, July 2017, Buena Vista, CO
Patricia Eagle made our wedding truly magical! It was more than an event, she made it a spiritual ceremony. The three of us formed a powerful triangle of energy connected directly to the earth. As words were said and feelings were felt, the elements rushed through us in form of wind, water, and woodland creatures. An epic experience I am and forever will be proud to call my wedding, All made possible with the guidance of Patricia Eagle. I also refer to her as Mother Nature, you will feel it when you meet her.

Patricia did a terrific job officiating the ceremony for my brother’s memorial celebration of life this summer. Her approach was thoughtful and professional, and she wrote a uniquely beautiful ceremony that really captured his life and spirit in a very personal, meaningful way. She had great ideas for the event, and was flexible given that it was held outdoors in a remote National Forest area of the Rocky Mountains. Patricia was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her – she exceeded my expectations and provided the best services I could have hoped for. Cindy, July 2016, outside Gunnison, CO
Patricia brought love, humor, all family members and even remembering who wasn’t there into our wedding! There was a part in our ceremony where Patricia asked my wife-to-be if she would accept my children (both my kids cried uncontrollably)! During our reception and after, we were told “that was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I’ve ever been too!” That even came from my super religious family who questioned our choice of not having a Preacher not doing the ceremony, so………score!

Everything was perfect. You are such an amazing person and it radiates from you. Our ceremony was everything I wanted it to be and more. You bring so much joy to the world. You took our thoughts and wishes and turned them into something so meaningful and beautiful that I still tear up thinking about our day! It was as effortless as simply loving each other; you took that love and put it into words. Wendi and Justin, Aug 2015, Del Norte, CO
Patricia made the service meaningful beyond words, even to the point that she made our father’s death and celebration beautiful during a time when beautiful normally isn’t even thought of. Please accept these words as a testimonial for the beautiful soul that Patricia is. The magic and heart that she put into this experience far surpassed any other experiences, with death being involved, that I’ve ever known in my 46 years of living. That alone shows me her true value as she walks upon this earth. The value that she possesses, I’m certain, touches many other lives and many other lives to come. Christina, Jan 2014, Livingston, TX
Patricia is warm, genuine, and kind–exactly the traits you want in someone writing and officiating the most important moment of your life. Her energy is so calming, which is exactly what you need when you are standing at the altar, feeling emotional and nervous. And did I mention she is a beautiful writer!? Our ceremony was so well written and tailored to who we are, you would think she had known us for years! Jacque, May 2015, Mount Princeton Hot Springs, CO
