Wedding Officiant

Carol is really an amazing officiant. She came in time and did all the paperwork perfectly. I would highly recommend her as an wedding officiant.

Wedding Officiant

Carol was nothing short of phenomenal. Such a wonderful lady who is such a bright and friendly person, she brought so much joy and ease to such a special occasion. It was simple and sweet just like what I wanted. Her pre-made vows added such a lovely touch and she made me feel so relaxed, like I'd known her forever. Would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone wishing for an at-home wedding or even for those looking for a more formal officiant for their big day. Wish her all the best in her future and a wealth of success!

With Love & Hope was an amazing officiant who made what could have been an ordinary experience into an amazing day for my fiancé and myself. She listened to our wants and needs and made our wedding warm and loving. Brought tears to everyone’s eyes. I highly recommend her.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The fee includes a customized service based on our discussions and with your input. There may be a travel supplement of $50 depending on your location. My attendance at your rehearsal will also have a fee of $50 plus travel supplement which is also based on your location.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I prefer to meet with the couple to discuss our vision(s) and to see if we connect. I am proud of my relationships and connection with my celebrating couples. This first meeting is a no-obligation consultation and will be very conversational. After we contract, we will work together to make your ceremony script meet your every need.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am ordained by American Marriage Ministries.
