  • 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

Reverend Jon Turino, Minister, Wedding Officiant

(14 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love officiating weddings. I really enjoy helping couples plan the ceremony and get the wording exactly as they want it. I customize the ceremony elements including the unity candle, sand, etc. Some couples request to have a memorial segment for people who've passed and are thus unable to attend the actual ceremony. Others like to have special guests say a few words as part of the wedding. I help them integrate all these so that their special day is as perfect as possible. I enjoy my amazing customers and the independence this vocation provides me.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I have had several previous businesses. I traveled the world in the 1980s teaching in seminars to engineers all over the world and giving technical presentations at conferences. I fell in love with speaking in front of people as well as conversing with them. I've also been in the corporate world. I've been an independent insurance and financial agent where my mission was to help people. I found that I got great satisfaction in helping people. So when a friend asked me to officiate at her wedding, I agreed. I got ordained and began promoting my services as a part-time business to supplement my retirement income. It gives me a meaningful and rewarding work to do for my clients now that I am already in my retirement years.

    (80 reviews)

    Pamela H.

    We had a very small wedding in her office building. The ceremony was exactly as we wanted. When I first started messaging her she made all kinds of suggestions and was very helpful. She had us face to face instead of looking at her and I realy loved that. You can tell she loves her job. I would say she deserves much more then 5 stars. Everything was perfect!!! I would recommend her to anyone weather your wedding is large or small she is very caring.

    Mica H.

    Like everyone else, Tom was wonderful to work with. For some background, I'm in the military in another hemisphere trying to plan a wedding in my hometown of Portland. It was extremely stressful and hard to communicate because of my hours, the time difference, and unable to call stateside. Tom did a great job communicating with me and understood if I didn't respond for weeks. Even when our date changed about four times he understood that our duty out here comes first. No matter how many changes came up he spoke out of joy and kindness. That meant the world to Kyle and I. From when I first contacted Tom till now he has served 21 people. That is very exciting to me because I know he has shared his joy and great heart with many more couples. Tom, thank you for your patience and kindness.

    I had two major questions asked of me after our wedding reception... Where are we going on our honeymoon? and where did you find this guy?? Jerrad did an outstanding job, and we both could not have been more pleased with how he did! Days after the wedding in fact some of our wedding guests still mentioned Jerrad's performance (Even in the 100 degree heat!) It was important for me to have a younger, more energetic officiant, and we got exactly what we wanted! If you are looking for a sure bet on a great officiant, you will not be disappointed! Thanks again Jerrad for making our day even more special and memorable!
