Introduction: I am an ordained minister in Fredericksburg, VA and licensed in the state of Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia and Washington DC. I listen to each couple's needs and desires for their special day and customize their wedding for a day they will always remember. I send samples of weddings I have performed so you can tailor it to yours. We also offer a small venue for your wedding ceremony to include a pagoda and seating for up to 50 people. A photo of a wedding is available to view. I do not perform LGBT weddings. Thank you.

Terry is very easy-going, punctual, professional and understanding. We loved having her as our wedding officiant. She was very responsive, following up with me and my plans several times before the wedding and made sure we are comfortably prepared for the main part of our wedding event by providing sample vows. She has a beautiful voice and a beautiful face that really lightened up our event and our officiation moment ❤️ My makeup session was running a bit late and she patiently waited for us. She is absolutely a great officiant for anyone looking for officiating their marriage in Virginia!

Terry was exceptionally perfect. We hired her to marry us at Burke Lake, it was beyond beautiful. She has an exceptional price and was very kind and compassionate. Having Terry as our officiant made our wedding day even more special. Highly recommend hiring her for your wedding!

Terry provided us pre-marital counseling and officiated our ceremony - she was absolutely wonderful to work with and made everything about the process enjoyable and easy to understand, and put us at ease about our ceremony amidst a lot of other wedding planning activities. Better than that, she helped ensure we had a stable foundation going into our marriage and life together. Couldn't recommend Terry more highly for your ceremony!
