Rev Norma was absolutely outstanding as our wedding officiant! After our ceremony, many of our guests asked us how we found her! She radiates positive energy and kept our small wedding upbeat and entertaining! I would highly recommend Rev. Norma!! Thanks again, Crista & John
We had a Skype interview with Dr. Kai and two other wedding officiants, but Dr. Kai was overwhelmingly impressive. He explained everything us and was happy to repeat any information that may have required a bit more explanation. He wasn't officious or pedantic, and he always encouraged us to make suggestions. His communication was always prompt, professional, and friendly. On the day of the ceremony, Dr. Kai was very professional and kind. My partner and I were a bit late due to DC traffic diversions, but he never once made us feel uncomfortable or guilty about it. He really put us at ease, and made our special day that much more special with his genuineness and professionalism. He explained everything to us about the ceremony again, completed his portion of the marriage license, and asked us to find a nice spot in which we would like to be married. He delivered the ceremony very professionally, and was very friendly and courteous to our guests. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kai to anyone I know who would happen to get married in any area that he is licensed. He makes the process painless and takes away all of your stress with his experience, gentleness, and professionalism. I cannot thank him enough for his part in our ceremony and I feel that we made a wonderful decision by hiring him as our officiant. Ricky Harrison :-) and Andrea Ghiselli
Rev. Larrin Robertson did an amazing job, officiating our Wedding day! He decided to officiate our wedding, on short notice and waas very accommodating. He was very patient with us, even though my wedding party and I arrived to the church an hour late! He welcomed my husband and I, with open arms and we are forever grateful. He is also an amazing counselor and we will continue to work with him, to receive the guidance that we need!!
Rev Christine was absolutely amazing. She worked with our busy schedules so that we could meet in person prior to the wedding. Upon meeting, we immediately felt as though our wedding was in good hands. She is very professional, organized, and cheerful. On the day of the ceremony, she made sure that everyone felt comfortable in their roles and knew what to do. She spoken clearly throughout the ceremony and gave us subtle reminders throughout the ceremony so that we always knew what to do or say. I couldn't have asked for a better experience! My husband and I highly recommend Rev Christine to anyone in need of an officiant.
Rev. Jamie did a phenomenal job officiating our wedding. Even my grandmother commented on how eloquent she was. Leading up to the wedding, she checked-in and was very responsive even when I was not. Together we came up with ceremony. It was really nice to have her input, making it a collaborative effort. She was very flexible with us. She was able to perform the legal paperwork months ahead of the ceremony for personal reasons and we didn't decide until the day of if we were going to read love letters to each other or not and she had no issue. She even printed out of vows to read on nice card stock. She was a pleasure to work with and will work with you whatever your needs and preferences are. I highly recommend her.
I would just like to say that Nicole was amazing. My now husband and I needed a officiant for our wedding after we had ours back out 2 days before our wedding. Nicole took on our emergency and got right to work writing our ceremony and vows. She included vows for my new husband to recite to my children as we are a blended family. She as well knew and was able to preform a hand fastening for our ceremony. She made our wedding seem as it was her top priority . These people care about their clients and I have already recommend them for some friends who were just engaged. Thank you Nicole for making us feel at ease and I could not be more pleased
Minister Keaton was exceptional as our wedding officiant.We were coordinating from out of town and on short notice but she truly made the experience easy. After just one conversation with her over the phone I knew she was the one for us. She was flexible, tailor making the ceremony to what we wanted for a reasonable price. She is truly a wonderful minister to work with and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant!
Rev. Bee was AMAZING. We got engaged Oct of this year (2014) and planned our wedding for 12-13-14. She not only worked around our schedule, but she was also VERY flexible. She gave us SO many options on how we could do our wedding, and even helped put it together. She made our ceremony light and FUNNY. All of our guests fell in love with her like we did. If we ever renew our vows in the future, we will be sure to call her back. She was a great officiant, and a great person in general. She is HIGHLY recommended but my husband and I. Kristine Summers
Rev. Thompson was the officiant for our wedding. Pre-wedding day, he was extremely helpful to us in making decisions about the ceremony and vows that suited us best. On our big day, he performed a lovely ceremony and even threw in some comic relief at just the right times, which I know we both appreciated (and needed!). He was always available and the utmost professional throughout the entire process. If you need an excellent wedding officiant, Pastor Dan is THE MAN!!
I know this is late but we got married back in December of 2014 and am I glad I chose Linette to be with us on that special day. Communication with her was great and I had a lot of questions. We talked frequently as we got closer to the wedding date and she was always available to answer any question for me. The day of the wedding she met us on the Brooklyn Bridge because yes, that's where we got married, and she had her assistant with her. This was our first time meeting in person and you could never tell that, I felt as if we had been friends for so long. Everyone loved our ceremony and she was so pleasant to work with. I'm glad we chose her to officiate our wedding.
Mrs. Kirsten was a wonderful Officiant ...She made my wedding day a beautiful memorable day for my husband and i...She is very good at what she loves to do...If anyone ever need a wedding Officiant just call on Mrs.Kirsten....She is the best...I just want to say thank you for giving my Husband and I the best testimony I ever heard for our Wedding....GOD BLESS!!!!"
Reverend Karen was our wedding officiant. She was fantastic! The first time we met with her to discuss our ceremony I knew she truly wanted our ceremony to be unique and special for us. She was very helpful with ideas and suggestions and we created a ceremony that was extremely meaningful and intimate. Reverend Karen did a fantastic job as our officiant, she made the most important part of our wedding ( the ceremony) absolutely wonderful - she spoke eloquently and our guests enjoyed her manner and delivery. We were so happy to be married by Reverend Karen Diamond.
Rev . Thompson married us on June 13th of this year we couldn't have asked for a better pastor from the rehearsal to the actual wedding ceremony he kept us calm and focused it felt like we knew him for a long time we did a candle light, ceremony it was beautiful and to the point. Thank you Rev . Thompson for marring us and may God continue to bless you in your ministry. Owen and Amanda Ayton
Linh did a tremendous job officiating our elopement and was instrumental in making a quickly-planned, small event still a moving, dignified, and special ceremony. He was immediately responsive, flexible even with our last minute changes, and provided suggestions when asked but otherwise let us customize the ceremony. What I appreciated most was his attention to detail. He went above and beyond what we expected with several small, thoughtful touches (like giving us cards for our vows so we wouldn't have to hold an awkward print out and could focus on each other during that moment). He also brought the certificate to the courthouse, in person, the same day; other officiants we got quotes from mailed them, often days after. He was professional and personable - I highly recommend Linh, whether you're planning a large wedding or a simple elopement.
Wonderful experience. Rev. Lolita did an excellent job preciding over my wedding . I will definitely recommend her to anyone I know getting married.

I highly recommend Peter of DC Secular Weddings as a Wedding Officiant. I was the bride in wedding in August 2014 and we found Peter through an internet web search and did not know him prior to hiring him. We spoke on the phone once and met in person once prior to the wedding day. Peter was very helpful and sent us wedding ceremony scripts for us to use to paste together our own ceremony. He was easy to work with and multiple people asked me how we knew Peter, because they were convinced we were all friends. it was so meaningful to have an officiant who meshed so well with us. We paid Peter via PayPal, so that was very helpful. dcsecularweddings.com
