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.

Wedding Officiant

I would recommend Terry to anyone looking for an officiant. She was punctual and provided the vows we wanted. She was available for my wedding on New Years Day. She was great and couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Terri officiated my sons small family only wedding and when we arrived at the restaurant 20 minutes early, Terry was waiting for us. She did a wonderful job and was very reassuring and kind.

Wedding Officiant

Terry is awesome! We had a very small wedding at our condo. She arrived before the time of the event so we could sing the marriage license and all we had to do before the actual event. She was very responsive during the process, she texted back very fast to our questions. Lovely and kind. We are happy she was our officiant. Thank you so much! 💕

Terry did a great job officiating our wedding. She arrived ahead of time and was very responsive and professional. The price for her services is very affordable compared to others in the area. We also love that we were able to customize the ceremony. I would recommend her to others.
