About Whitney Crutchfield


I am a Registered Wedding Officiant in New York City and an ordained minister through the Universal Life Church, performing non-denominational, interfaith ceremonies celebrating two loving adults, always honoring that love with a thoughtful balance of reverence and light. I wholeheartedly value the power of ritual and celebration, and I find that these foster an even greater understanding of love and connection. I will gladly embrace and strive to enhance your traditions.


In 2015, I founded WE GATHER, a brand of handwoven textiles for celebrations, because I ached to create meaningful objects and experiences that last. Just as I revel in the opportunity to create textile objects, I look forward to working with you to create a ceremony that is personal and meaningful. When possible, I prefer to meet with the couple in person to better capture and highlight the character of their love for each other.


There are so many emotions packed into a wedding ceremony - joy, excitement, comfort, anticipation, kindness. It is my deep honor to participate in the joy of others and to contribute to your growing love. So take a few deep breaths, and let me help you embark upon one of life’s great adventures.
