About Ceremonies by Alex

Hello and congratulations! I'm Alex Cheek, a wedding officiant based out of Pinnacle, North Carolina. I've officiated at over nine hundred marriage ceremonies since 1994, so I have plenty of experience in what makes an enjoyable ceremony. Though I'm an ordained Christian minister I perform both non-religious and religious weddings. Individuals with "ordinations" obtained over the internet cannot legally perform marriages in North Carolina and Virginia, so check your officiant's credentials! I aim to please every one of my clients, ensuring them from the first correspondence that you have a wedding officiant who is dedicated to ensuring you have exactly the kind of custom-written ceremony you desire. I've been a part of weddings of every kind imaginable, always ensuring the ceremony is both memorable and enjoyable for everyone there! Whether you have three people at your wedding or three hundred, you'll receive my full attention and care.

I have "run" countless rehearsals, and would be happy to assist you with that if you desire. Having spent years working in radio, I have a voice folks enjoy hearing, and one that never needs a microphone to be heard. My writing skills have always been praised for custom crafting ceremonies to fit the exact needs of the moment, and the exact wishes of my clients. Also, I've spent time acting on the stage, so I know a bit about how to deliver my "lines" with style and grace without upstaging the two real stars of the show--the couple getting married! You can watch me speak on a variety of wedding topics at my YouTube channel "Ceremonies By Alex." I regularly perform weddings in Spanish, and have performed portions of ceremonies in nine other languages.

I'm a firm believer in the KISS principle; keeping things simple is best, and I want the focus to be on the two people getting married. Having more "stuff" in your wedding is not going to make it that much better--you can't double your wedding budget and expect it will be twice as wonderful or twice as romantic, or that you will be twice as happy or (most importantly) that your marriage will be twice as good.

    Wonderful Ceremony by Alex!

    Alex and his family were kind enough to host our wedding at his family home in the later stages of the COIV-19 pandemic.

    He gave us various options from which to choose from.

    The wedding, although planned to be very informal, was enhanced by the grace and elegance not only afforded by the well-written verses but also by the kindness displayed by Alex and his family.

    Amazing Officiant!

    We just got married this Saturday in a tiny backyard wedding - and Alex made it so special! He was easy to work with, and sent a draft of the ceremony ahead of time (which was great). I would definitely recommend his services to any bride in the Charlotte area!
