About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I take pride in customizing each ceremony to the individuals involved. If they want traditional, we can do traditional, but I love writing custom services.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love being able to help people's dreams come true. (I also get a real charge out of being able to announce the new couple for the first time!)

    Rev. Rhiannon Hood is an AWESOME officiant. My now husband and I did not have our own vows. What she wrote for us was spot on. I especially loved that she hand delivers the marriage license after taking it to the court after the ceremony. This was very helpful, since we live in North Carolina. I strongly recommend her for your wedding!

    She did a great job. Made our lives easy. It was the perfect length and she was even prepared for us, if we didn't have our own vowels ready. Showed up on time, took care of necessary business. She even went t6o the court house and did the paper work and came to our post wedding breakfast to drop off out Marriage license. I would highly recommend her. Thanks

    Rev. Rhiannon Hood was very professional, and was able to write vows just as we asked. The most important request We had was to have all 4 children involved in the wedding. Rev. Rhiannon had the greatest ideas and our wedding was more than I would have ever expected. Thank you so very much. From, Jen & RJ Davis

    Your family was fun to be around... and the kids were a joy to work with - especially with keeping RJ in the dark about what we were doing for his surprise!!

    Rev. Hood did a court house ceremony for my now husband and I. She helped us out and did a great job on short notice. She was very knowledgeable, kind, and made us and the moment feel very special. She made the whole process easier and made us feel at ease. We are very happy she was there for our big day. Highly recommend.

    Rev. Hood served as the officiant for my wedding on May 10th. She was wonderful! I was very stressed over all the planning and from the very first meeting we had I felt at ease with her. She had lots of good ideas and several different vow options for us! Thank you Rhiannon!
    Rev. E. Rhiannon H. May 28, 2014

    I'm glad I could reduce your stress level. Your day should be about YOU and your groom... not about stress... Thanks for your kind words!

    Rev. Hood did a spectacular job as our wedding officiant. She made us feel relaxed ans at easy as we went through our ritual. It was almost like a friend of the family performing our ceremony instead of someone we just recently met. I would recommend Rev. Hood to anyone of any denomination to perform their ceremony. She's at the top of my list!!!!!
    Rev. E. Rhiannon H. May 28, 2014

    Your wedding was fun and original... I'd be happy to help out any time!

    Rev. Hood was the perfect match for our special day. She was obtained on short notice but still made time to get to know me and my now husband. The moment me and him met her she had this warmth about her. She wrote our vows and ceremony in less then a week and it was just what we wanted.She put up with my crazy family the whole time. If you are looking for an officiant that is professional and personable look no further. Thank you for all that you did to make our day perfect.

    She was the best priestess I have ever seen! She did my wife and I's handfasting and it was absolutely the most wonderful day of my life and am thankful she was a part of it. I don't think our handfasting would have worked without the help of this amazing and beautiful woman! THANK YOU!
    Rev. E. Rhiannon H. Feb 20, 2014

    Thank you so much everything was beautiful and your entire party was wonderful (and fun) to work with! Thanks so much for letting me be part of your & your wife's day!

    Rhiannon performed our handfasting October 8, 2011. We had a very small ceremony but we were very specific on the elements we wanted. Rhiannon worked with us helping us to find the right words to make our ceremony perfect. Rhiannon's knowledge of various different religions and their marriage traditions helped us a lot. f you are looking for someone that will take the time to help you make your day personal to you and your fiance' I highly recommend Rhiannon

    Rhiannon performed our hand fasting on July 6th 2013. We'd had someone else scheduled but they cancelled on us for personal reasons. I was always taught that if something felt right it would happen. I'd met Rhi two weeks before and had clicked with her on a personal and spiritual level. When I went running to her asking for help she told me that on our first meeting she knew she was going to perform our ceremony somehow. The ceremony she put together for us included her husband and two of their close friends. It lasted around 20-30 minutes. There was a unity candle ceremony and the exchange of a sword and specially crafted broom, also the calling of the elements. Rhi found the person that crafted the broom especially for me and also found the perfect sword for us - our hand fasting cord was made by a special lady too! What worked best? All of it - from the way the chairs were set up to the altar itself to the 4 individuals involved, the guests, the setting, the time of day. I think our guests loved the way Rhi explained things beforehand - even when I surprised her by coming down early she held it together and gave everyone a very spiritual and emotional experience. There were little quirks during the ceremony that made it even more perfect, no one on this Earth is perfect but put it all together and it worked! I am having to fight tears as I write this, the ceremony was emotional, spiritual and amazing! I would recommend Rhiannon to ANYONE desiring perfection. Brightest Blessings!
