Capturing the
Essence of Lives Lived

Welcome to Life Tribute Celebrant

Welcome to Life Tribute Celebrant. I am Tacye Vogel, a certified funeral celebrant, certified grief specialist and ordained minister. I am passionate about helping families create meaningful and memorable ceremonies, focusing on funerals and weddings.

I have been serving families since 1999 and I have a deep understanding of the importance of these events, and I am committed to providing my clients with the highest level of service.

Since 1999, working at funeral homes and cemeteries has allowed me to gain tremendous knowledge and compassion. Working with a vast variety of religions, cultures, and secular families, I can coordinate the life story of your loved one into any type of ceremony. I have a wealth of experience and knowledge that allows me to help families who are grieving the loss of a loved one and provide them with the support and guidance that they need during this difficult time. Capturing the essence of the person being honored in an authentic, honest, respectful, and dignified manner is at the heart of what I do.

What is a Celebrant?

A Celebrant serves by providing personalized ceremonies such as funeral services, memorial services, end of life tributes, weddings, or vow renewals. Celebrants are becoming increasingly popular as more and more people are looking for a more personal and non-religious alternative to traditional weddings and funerals. They offer a unique and flexible option for couples and families who want to create a ceremony that is truly their own.

Who I Am

My name is Tacye Vogel and I have been working with families that have experienced a loss since 1999. I became a Certified Funeral Celebrant in 2017 and I am also an ordained minister. I have spent my career walking with people right after they have lost someone. Walking by their side, listening and helping them to make decisions that will last a lifetime has been a great honor, and has helped me understand the deep desire and importance of personalization in these end of life ceremonies.

In becoming a Certified Life Tribute Celebrant, I realized that everyone needs something unique from a funeral service or life celebration. I bring to light what these desires are and provide a service that is touching, true, straightforward, and soothing.

I have translated the ceremony work I have done in the end-of-life space into officiating weddings. I am an ordained minister for legal purposes. I approach weddings in the same capacity I do funerals, with love, care, and attention to the details.

I dedicate my professional work to helping people honor major events in their lives, with ceremonies to capture the moment and make memories.

My Process

I get to know the deceased after they have left this earth. Interviewing the still living family and friends allows me to uncover the unique aspects of your loved one. By asking questions, listening to stories, and tapping into my inner experience and intuition, you can trust me to write a service that honors the life lived. This is my specialty. Taking an entire life lived and summarizing ALL of it into about an hour. 

It is important to me to create a space for people to feel comfortable to tell me everything about the person who died and their relationship to them. Allowing people to be heard without judgment, allowing people to share anything they need to or want to, allowing people to express their darkest and brightest memories, with a total stranger, are all crucial to this process.

I work with you to capture the essence of your loved one as I write and speak about them.
