    I absolutely loved working with Rev. Dr. A.J. Smith. She was so personable and was very prompt about emailing back after asking maybe one too many questions! She had a lot of different scripture and passages to choose from so you could really customize your ceremony to be how ever you'd like it to be. She was early to both the ceremony rehearsal and the wedding day. I would definitely recommend Forever Love Weddings to anyone in the search for an amazing officiant!

    Forever Love Weddings was perfect!
    Rev. Smith made our whole experience perfect! From our first meeting, we felt comfortable talking to her, like she was an old friend. You could tell from the beginnning that she was not an officiant for the recognition or the money, just to share in the joy of two people getting married! The ceremony was beautiful and ran smoothly because of her helping to keep us to keep calm and organized and the vows were just what we asked for! We received our marriage certificate right away because of her help also. I would highly recommend Rev. AJ Smith at Forever Love Weddings to anyone! www.foreverloveweddings.com

    AJ Smith officiated a double bride wedding that I coordinated this weekend and she did an awesome job. The brides were happy with her service, including the sand ceremony that was incorporated into the service. I will definitely be referring her to upcoming couples.

    It was freezing cold down by the lake. Everything went perfectly. Even though I forgot to bring the official paperwork with me, she met us at lunchtime, and we signed everything. Over and above the call of duty. Would highly recommend. Very conscientious. Thank you so much. Robin and Maria

    White Wedding -1.7.17
    We got married on 1-7-17. This was the weekend of the snow/ice storm in Charlotte. It was a stressful week to say the least. My ceremony site almost canceled on us the morning of the wedding which will never be forgotten. On the up-side - Andrea was amazing!!! She came through without any issues and was very professional. We met 2 times before my wedding to discuss and finalize details. She was punctual to the Rehearsal and the Ceremony regardless of the weather/road conditions. She has a positive energy about her personality that just glows and I could not have made a better decision when I chose her to officiate our ceremony. I would highly recommend her to anyone for their special day.

    Rev Smith officiated our wedding in November. We were in contact with her throughout our whole engagement and she was always very polite and responsive. She came to the rehearsal promptly and offered advice on how to best execute the wedding of our dreams. She was very professional and helpful during our ceremony. We could not have asked for anyone better to assist us with our ceremony and help us start our forever together.

    Andrea officiated our wedding ceremony on June 17 2016 at the Rooftop of the Holiday Inn Center City. Our unique little ceremony was everything we expected and more. She truly captured the spirit of who we were and what we wanted in our ceremony very well. She is very kind, accommodating, extremely punctual, adaptable (we had a very windy ceremony and had to abandon the mics) however, her voice projected well. Everyone heard her and most importantly she made us feel extremely comfortable the entire ceremony. We do not hesitate to recommend her for your wedding ceremony.

    We were eloping in Paris but needed our legal ceremony in America first. All systems go for courthouse until my fiancé and I picked up our marriage license. He did not want any part of saying I do in a building like that. Quickly we both started reaching out to find an officiant with two days notice before we left for Paris! Enter Thumbtack and sweet AJ! She responded immediately, offered suggestions for readings and even arrived to our chosen outdoor venue before we did with a much needed second witness! I hadn't anticipated feeling any emotion during our ceremony because in my mind our "real" exchange was to be done in Paris. I cried about two words in and enjoyed every second of our brief but lovely ceremony. AJ took photos, edited them, sent in our paperwork, sent us a pic of our certificate for our time abroad and made us feel so at ease. Thank you for rescuing us and solving the one problem my darling fiancé had. We are finishing our time in Paris and have spoken about you and our experience so much during our trip. Turns out, both ceremonies were real and dear to us in different ways. Thank you for everything!

Communication could have been better but I understand I had already wrote the cerimony so not much was needed. It turned out beautiful but the prayer I asked for was left out.

    If I could give over 5 stars for Reverend Smith, I absolutely would. Reverend Smith was incredibly easy to work with and made the entire process so seamless and intuitive. On our first meeting, we found her easy to talk to, charismatic and funny and we both knew she would be the one we wanted to officiate our wedding because I knew she would keep me at ease. On the big day she was early, looked gorgeous and my entire family could not stop raving about what a beautiful ceremony we had. To top it all off, my wedding cake never arrived due to a miscommunication (It wouldn't be a wedding without something going wrong right?) Reverend Smith went out and got us a replacement cake and nobody even knew about the mistake. I mean, honestly, what an incredible person. If you are looking for an officiant for your wedding day, you've found her! :)

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We can meet in person or over the phone, via email or on video chat, whatever is easiest for the client. I ask that you review the options and choices on my website and let me know what you like. We can craft your ceremony from there.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am fully ordained and have a PhD in Systematic Theology. I studied religion for my personal information, not because I felt lead to lead a flock. My calling is wedding ministry.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
I have a flat rate of $150. If you desire a quick, courthouse alternative wedding/Elopement, I can do that for $50. If required to travel over 30 miles from my office and destination weddings that require travel or overnight stays - Contact officiant for pricing
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have been in the wedding industry in various capacities for over 20 years. I was a military bride and saw how difficult it can be to get married when you are far from home and in a new place. Many officiants will not marry a couple that does not attend their church ( especially in the South), and I am of the opinion that adults who want to be together should find no impediment to doing so.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I work with couples from all walks of life!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I met with a wonderful couple who were in the military. The bride was Air Force and the Groom was a Marine. They were each deploying to different parts of the world. They both travelled to Charlotte and called me. I had officiated for a friend of theirs last year. We met at a local hotel and I married them in the garden. I brought her a bouquet and a bottle of champagne. The next morning, they deployed to their respective assignments, but did so knowing that they were legally married.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Talk to the officiant and make sure your personalities are a match. Look for someone willing to give you exactly what you want!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Marriage is a huge, life-long commitment. Be sure that the decisions you are making are for the right reasons and that you are devoted to the work that is a marriage.
