Baby Blessings, Welcomings and First Birthdays

Alisa Tongg specializes in creating and performing Ceremonies Across the Life-Cycle and especially loves working with families who are looking for a meaningful way to mark and celebrate the addition of a new member of the family. Family ceremonies are typically held in the morning and early afternoon. Ceremonies starting at $1200. Because of the nature of this work, this service is limited to the Poconos, Lehigh Valley and Northern New Jersey.


“Alisa is the best! This summer she crafted the most perfect baby blessing ceremony to welcome our son and to celebrate his first year. Alisa was super helpful in guiding and offering suggestions while we were writing our vows; sifting through thoughts and emotions expounding on this first year with our new baby. The ceremony was more than we ever thought it could be. There wasn’t a dry eye when she commissioned our 12-year-old son to be a guiding example and we loved the way she incorporated each of our guests to participate in the blessing. She is detail oriented, energetic, passionate and super creative. We only wish we would have had her for our wedding ceremony!”

Birth Family Reunion Ceremony

I was privileged to create and perform a ceremony to reunite a young man with his birth mother and her family. The experience was one of catharsis, healing and new beginnings. I hope that by sharing their story and how I created their ceremony, that others yearning to repair this primal bond, will find inspiration and hope.
