Introduction: I love love love my job! I studied , Religious studies, Women's studies, Buddhism as well as many other religious and humanities courses at Penn State University.. I have been a caretaker and a counselor! I graduated with honors in 2013 and I am LGBTQ family friendly! I am fully vaccinated and wear a mask! Bride and groom can forgo a mask at their discretion during ceremony! Small , medium , or large! Or just you two and me in a park! 💝💝💝 I have ceremonies to fit all scenarios. You choose the ceremony you want. from a short, civil ceremony, to a long religious or non-religious ceremony with or without prayers, poems and/ or Bible readings. We design it together! starting with the basics and tweaking it from there! Just the basics, so be it! Short civil ceremonies at my location will be less costly! It's your day, your way! From 2 to 500, no wedding is too small! After the ceremony, I will slip quietly away. I will also take care of all the paperwork for the state. I am proud to have received the top pro award !🦋 Together we can make your special day just the way you want it, or if you prefer, I can handle the entire ceremony for you and you can stop worrying about that part of your day with just one consultation phone call at no charge for the call. If you are receiving this quote, I am available on your date! But don’t wait too long because it is first come first serve and others may have requested this date! Meeting new couples. I especially enjoy writing the vows and seeing the tears of joy if my couples are hearing them for the first time! Joining hearts! Helping people plan their ceremony for their special day.

Wedding Officiant

Carol was wonderful! She came to our rescue at the last minute when the first officiant was not responding as our date fast approached. We wanted the ceremony to be very quick (especially due to 93 degree weather) and she added just the right touches of her own verses and vows to make it personal and professional.
