Ruth did an amazing job officiating our wedding. My wife and I could not be more pleased with her professionalism and the attention she paid to us and our needs.Mar 3, 2019
About two months before our wedding, our original officiant cancelled leaving us with no one to turn to! Our venue, The Lily Pad, recommended Rev. Ruth Lenger and we called her right away and she was extremely responsive, quick with email for any, and all, of my questions, and ensured that we had the most beautiful ceremony we could have dreamed of! My husband and I don’t live in North Carolina anymore, so when we were in town for last minute wedding details, she made it a point to meet with us before the wedding and make sure we had everything we needed! We had only known her for a short time, but she felt like family and I am so happy that she was available to officiate our wedding. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone!! When I have our wedding pictures back, I’ll post one 😃May 10, 2019One of a Kind Ceremonies's reply
Thank you for this review, Leana, I so enjoyed being with you both and your lovely family. It was a beautiful wedding and thank you for letting me share it with you.
We are so happy we chose Ruth as our officiant. She was so accommodating, helpful, loving, just all around wonderful! She truly made our special day extra special! It is very evident that her heart is truly in the work that she does!Oct 12, 2019VerifiedOne of a Kind Ceremonies's reply
Thank you so much, Sarah, it was my pleasure, all best wishes! Ruth
Ruth was apart of not only our wedding process, but our journey. We learned more about ourselves through her premarital counseling too! She made the process smooth and exceeded our expectations. Being in a same sex couple, Ruth did not treat us any different. Ruth portrays love in her presence and brings a light to the room.Mar 4, 2019
Ruth was amazing. She made sure everything was about my husband and I. I like the way she let us pick what we wanted said during our ceremony. She made our wedding everything we ever dreamed of.Jun 24, 2019One of a Kind Ceremonies's reply
Thank you very much, Ashley, everything was sweet and I so enjoyed meeting you both and sharing your day.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My basic fee to officiate at a marriage is $200.00 We can negotiate other factors depending distance, rehearsal needed or not, pre-marital counseling, etc.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I offer a 'wedding workbook' if couples wish to customize the ceremony by selecting the language, (i.e. traditional, more contemporary, etc.) and parts to be included, vows, readings, poems, etc.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Master of Divinity degree; am ordained in the Presbyterian denomination PC(USA); am certified to use the Prepare/Enrich tools for pre-marital counseling; and have had mediation training. I have been ordained for 25 years and have officiated at many marriages.
