Introduction: I have two types of ceremonies, so there's something for everyone. Elopements....small group of folks, no bridal party, no aisle to walk down, intimate, I tell your story, but memorable of course. Full ceremony...all the bells and whistles. It's my biggest ceremony with the most customization, most options, your story, larger bridal parties, etc. Inside the Reno/Sparks area they start at $250, and $400 respectively. Outside of that area, mileage charges will apply, but they are nominal. I offer discounts for: *Military *First Responders *Seniors *educators I'm very enthusiastic and love to perform ceremonies. It shows in my work. I really go the "extra mile" by doing a lot of extra things that might not be expected. Ask about my Covid procedures!

Carole was absolutely fantastic! We planned our rescheduled wedding for October in a little town outside of Reno. I had originally thought a family member would be able to do the proceeding but they weren't able to make our thrice rescheduled date. I found Carol on thumbtack, she was available for the date and willing to come to our venue. The service was super personal, my oldest daughter cried a lot, I might have too. It was beautiful and perfect and she was fantastic! I would highly highly recommend using her for your ceremony if you have the oppurtunity!

Details: Commitment ceremony • Non-denominational (mentions God) • 51 - 100 guests • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Date and time has not yet been chosen

Carol was an absolute life saver for us. We had a very unique situation with our wedding officiant not being able to marry us legally, but we then contacted carol and she was able to hold a small private ceremony for my wife and I. She was very polite, personable, and did not make us feel bad or uncomfortable about our situation at all. I’d absolutely recommend her to be anybody’s officiant.

Details: Elopement • Christian • 20 guests or fewer • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

Carol Baisinger-Criddle's reply
Thank you so much for including me in your day! I'm glad I was able to be there for you both so your wedding ceremony could be what you wanted.

Carol is great! My wedding was kinda crazy, and very freezing!! But she stuck it out and even made my guest laugh while we all were freezing next to the lake in Tahoe during a snowstorm! I loved how involved and easy she makes it to basically choose what it is that she says and customize it if you would like with poems and such. All around great experience And bonus we got out official marriage license the next day! very fast and efficient Pun intended lol

Great communication from Carol during the whole process. She arrived early, looked lovely and offered assistance. Made me and my husband feel very comfortable and really helped us make our ceremony flow smoothly, giving us gentle direction during and also being creative and clever adding a cute comment to soften the awkwardness when my dog kept barking when we were trying to speak our vows. I would definitely recommend Carol to officiate a beautiful ceremony!

FAQs

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

    I offer two (2) levels of officiant services: * One is a fully customized wedding ceremony for $375 * The elopement package (just the couple and a few friends) starting at $250 depending on where you want to elope. Are you having an elopement? Well, you aren't walking down an aisle, no bridal party, no DJ, no one is giving you away. It's intimate. Mileage is not included to areas outside of the Reno/Sparks area. I offer military, senior, first responder, and essential worker discounts. For a full price sheet, please see my website.

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

    When am am hired, I send each couple a template for the ceremony and customize it with them until it is perfect for them...not me. I have samples for each stage of the wedding. They can use my samples or we can create something totally new. I also send out a questionnaire to get to know them.

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

    I have a BS in Business and have been a small business owner for over 18 years. I have an extensive background in customer service.
