Rev. Genevieve Saenz, MA
expressive artist and ordained interfaith minister
A celebrant creates & performs Ceremonies for secular & spiritual clients.
I am Genevieve, I am one of the only celebrants practicing in Austin who has so much experience and does so much!
Beyond the basics of; show up and “read a thing”. I work intimately with my clients to create and officiate original:
coming of age rituals
mother to be blessings
and many others.
When in the role of celebrant, I think of my self as a counselor, artesian, hostess, and performer.
First, I use my counseling and coaching skills to collect information about the tone and intention. Then, I creatively weave together a unique ceremony for the client. Finally, I pull out my inner emcee and lead the event with a gentle charisma.
This is the work I love! Join me in it.
Ask my clients, I invoke joy and peace in any occasion! My work is calling everyone in to the moment and holding the magic; so that you can be fully present for your own ceremony.
"My husband and I were really worried about pleasing his family, while staying true to ourselves at the same time. We met with Genevieve, and she created a ceremony so perfect, that I wouldn't have noticed if everything else had gone wrong." -Jade, Austin
"That was SO WONDERFUL! YOU, my dear. I loved the flow of our blessing ritual, your intuitive guidance, and heartfelt Loving Kindness. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for blessing our new space." -Billy, Austin
"Genevieve helped friends grieve, breathe, and remain true to our friend as we planned everything together. There's something very soothing about her voice that carried through the planning stage with a small group and into officiating in front of a large crowd. Genevieve didn't steal the show but her presence remains with you afterwards. You know it wouldn't have been the same without her guidance and support." -Diana, Austin
"After 30 years of marriage, sometime it's difficult to remember all the things we mean to each other. Your ceremony to renew our wedding vows was inspired. Thank you, Genevieve." -Lee, Houston
