  • Bee's Blessed Marriages/Rev. Rebecca Hackett

    (27 reviews)

    I am an ordained minister with the purpose of promoting and facilitating the sacred covenant of marriage under God and the laws of the state of Maryland and D.C. This includes vow renewals. I am a Christian and have been married for 21 years. The ceremony can be Christian, non-denominational, secular and multi cultural done in either English, Spanish or both, as I am completely fluent in both. Your ceremony can be serious or we can add humor to it, but it will always have lots of love and romance. I don't require, but strongly recommend, that couples take some type of counseling sessions prior to starting their marriage. If needed, I can provide these premarital sessions for a successful marriage. During rehearsals, I can organize your wedding party for the procession, recession and go over the order of the ceremony. You will not find a better officiant to work with you to obtain everything you want in your ceremony.

  • Pastor's Wedding Help

    (1 reviews)

    Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I enjoy officiating at weddings and helping the bride and groom fashion a service that expresses who they are and the love they share. As an ordained pastor I only officiate at weddings when the couple want to include God's blessings. That being said, together we will decide how much and what type of religious language you prefer and whether you'd like secular or Bible readings. I am pastor at St. Luke's Lutheran church in Derwood, MD. I am Mom to two sons and one daughter. I have officiated at numerous weddings for church member,friends and family. People tell me that the ceremonies I create are loving, joy filled and unique for each couple.

  • Sermons from the Vine

    (2 reviews)

    I am an ordained Christian pastor, and my ministry (Sermons from the Vine) is dedicated to the vineyards, primarily of Northern Virginia. I can only perform Christian weddings and only then after meeting with the couple and determining that the union is biblically based. Several counseling sessions may be necessary before making a determination if we should proceed. Signed covenants are required and if desired, vows can be written by the couple but must contain love as defined in 1 Corinthians 13 : 4-7. I've performed several weddings at local wineries which tend to make wonderful wedding venues. Marriage is a very serious step in a person's life and should not be taken lightly or without due diligence. I do my best to see that those important issues are adequately dealt with, prior to taking the marriage vows.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Sharon Rose LaVerda and Associate, Weddings and Other Ceremonies

(48 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

What I mostly love about my job is meeting people who are in love and not only optimistic about the future, but really excited about it. Most are young and starting a family, some have been together quite a while and are just ready to legalize their union. Some are even older who are so happy to be in love and want to spend their days together. I love that I work with current and future happiness always. I work with love.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

My sister is a wedding officiant in New Jersey. I was a chaplain in a nursing home. It was a very rewarding thing to be and do but after several years, I was really realizing that it was often sad. One day after spending a long night with someone, I found myself going off the road on my way home and decided I was meant to take that as a sign to change. My sister said that with my background I should do what she does and be happy and have happiness around me. She was so right. I have met the most amazing people and have not had a minute of regret. I wish I had done it sooner.

  1. #1 Totally about Weddings and Events

    (67 reviews)

    Jacqueline L.

    Tina was AMAZING!!! She is a full service wedding coordinator/planner who thought of everything and made the entire experience wonderful. My husband and I decided to elope in Saratoga Springs but were not familiar with the area. Tina arranged for the photographer, witness, flowers and location. It was Tina who thought to contact me to ask about flowers. Once she had a sense of what we were looking for she researched florists and negotiated a price that was half of what most others charged. Tina even picked the flowers up for me. The photographer Tina selected was fantastic and also affordable. Tina crafted the ceremony to suit us as a couple and was exactly what we wanted. I felt like Tina really cared about us and was truly happy for us. I am pleased with every aspect of my experience with Tina and highly recommend her services.

  3. #3 Rev. Peter Rehonis

    (28 reviews)

    Jennifer T.

    We already had a secular officiant, and were just looking for a religious person who could bless the wedding to appease a family member. Rev. Rehonis not only rose to the occasion, but went well above and beyond what the situation called for. We did most of the wedding planning ourselves, and he skillfully guided us through how the blessing should take place, as well as fine tuning other parts of the ceremony. On more than one occasion, he was able to meet with us on very short notice to go over things. He did all of this with an endless supply of wit and charm that endeared him to everyone involved. Several engaged friends at the wedding took his number down for their own future days. We cannot recommend Rev. Rehonis strongly enough.

    I cannot say enough about how wonderful Fr. Jonathan was for our wedding. Coming from a mixed Christian background each of us felt like our faith was given due justice. We met twice before the wedding and each time was easy - it was clear we were all on the same wavelength. We received such wonderful comments from our guests regarding the ceremony. We would recommend Fr. Jonathan to anyone! Thank you Fr. Jonathan for everything! Sincerely, Meredith & Joe
