Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Your wedding ceremony does NOT have to be religious in tone! It doesn't have to have any religion in it at all! I can work with you to make your ceremony just what you want it to be--lovely, romantic, and memorable, just like the rest of your wedding day. I believe in your right to get married! I'm passionate about helping couples have a wonderfully beautiful wedding ceremony. I personalize the verbiage for the ceremony to match the couple. I am non-traditional, LGBTQ+, BDSM, and inter-racial/ethnic/religious friendly. There is not enough love in this world! Why should anyone stop those that are in love from becoming a family?? There is NO good reason! You are paying for professional services when you work with me. I am experienced, can answer or find the answer to just about any question you have about your ceremony. I'm open to all kinds of cultural beliefs, have no judgement about who or what you want to include in your wedding, and have experience with just about anything you can request. I know what makes your ceremony legal and what doesn't. I am physically ordained, so your wedding will be legal AND spiritually, lovingly, and eternally binding. Your ceremony can be customized to your commitment, religious, or ethnic beliefs. I'll work with you to be sure everything is covered. I am available for dress rehearsals, elopements, small or large ceremonies. I am willing to work with your venue to make sure your ceremony is exactly as you wish it to be. But, I'm not a wedding coordinator...I am the person who marries you and signs your paperwork. Unfortunately, I am NOT available for weddings where a hike or long walk is required. Just know there is a horrible story associated with that! Please NOTE: If you are looking for someone local to you, I am in Asheville and work in the surrounding areas. I'm happy to drive further than the hour included in the $275 initial cost, but there is an additional travel fee for that. I am authorized to perform weddings in any state in the union. I'm also fully vaccinated and boosted (as is my family) and will continue to get boosters, as the CDC recommends. FREE INFO: One requirement to get married in North Carolina is a Marriage License. If you live in NC, you can get your license from any of our 100 counties and it's good anywhere in NC. If you are from out-of-state, you have to get your Marriage License from the county you are getting married in. So google your venue or wedding location's county, then google the county's website and Marriage License, i.e. "Henderson County NC Marriage License." Every county has an online application that you fill out prior to going to the courthouse or clerk's office to pick up your license. Cost is usually $30-75 plus a nominal fee for a copy of your Marriage Certificate. You'll need that if you plan to change your last name, get on each other's insurance, bank info, etc. A bit about me personally: My husband and I just celebrated our 10 year anniversary. He is a teacher and coach who loves to read and watch every kind of sport you can imagine; I am an antiques dealer and wedding officiant, as well as a substitute teacher in special needs classes, who loves to cook and craft. We have a beautiful daughter who is the light of our lives and has special needs. We all live in Asheville with our rescued dachshund, Macy.

Wedding planner here! LuAnne was a joy to work with! I found her within a month of my clients’ wedding after their original officiant fell through. She was easy to work with and captured exactly what they were looking for, making everyone feel at ease. I would definitely hire her again for future clients.

From Day one Mrs. LuAnne was very responsive, she always responded within 10 minutes. She contacted me regularly until the day of our wedding. The price was excellent. She was very professional. She has a happy energy and spirit. Very attentive and sweet. We will be hiring her again for next year for our second wedding. She was great in all areas! Thank you Mrs. LuAnne!

LuAnne was the perfect officiant for us. She put together a lovely, inclusive ceremony that was tailored exactly to our needs and cultural preferences, and she executed it with rare poise and grace. LuAnne definitely delights in what she does, and she is excellent at it; we’re so happy we chose her to help us make our little family official.
