A celebrant will schedule a time to meet with you and your family and friends in your home or at Forest Lawn for approximately two to three hours. After this shared “story-telling” time, the celebrant will craft a customized ceremony that touches on the key elements that will make for a beautiful tribute. The celebrant will also take an active role in assisting various speakers before the event and will facilitate and guide the proceedings, make any necessary announcements, as well as lead individuals through any rituals within the service.
