About CeremonybyRachael

I am a caring, kind, patient, fun, and outgoing ordained minister who officiates wedding ceremonies in the Baltimore area. My background in education helps me to guide clients toward a calm, peaceful, and rewarding ceremony experience, while still keeping things light and upbeat. I strive to help couples create a unique and meaningful ceremony that reflects their individuality, love, and commitment toward one another. In addition, I take great pride in being a detail-orientated professional, and I make every effort toward being an available resource and support system for those that I am consulting with.

I identify and admire the diversity of the world and therefore I perform my ceremonies without prejudice of any kind. Ultimately, I value a sacred union between two people to be one that is reflective of the love and commitment that they share with each other regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, or gender.

When I am not conducting weddings ceremonies, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband Ben and I live in the Hereford Zone of Baltimore County and are raising four small girls; Adalia, Piper, Hadie, and Lorelie. We enjoy hiking, playing outside, and taking frequent trips to the river to throw rocks.

    Rachael was an absolute joy to work with! Her attention to detail and her work with us to tailor the ceremony to how we specifically wanted it helped make our special day even better. Rachael is incredibly personable, and we really appreciated the chats with her in order to nail down the details that made the ceremony flow perfectly. We can't recommend Rachael enough!

    Rachael was absolutely fabulous! She started us off with a lot of ideas that we could pick and choose from which was great for us since we didn't have a perfect picture of how we wanted our ceremony to go. Me and my now wife never had a problem getting in contact with her and were happy with her warm and friendly personality. However, it was the wedding day itself where she really impressed. From my point of view, (the groom) the hours leading up to the wedding were very stressful as guests were being greeted, questions being answered and tweaks to the ceremony were being made all while waiting for the bride to arrive. Rachael was great at adapting to day-of changes that had to be made and making sure me and my bride-to-be knew exactly what to expect during our ceremony which was very helpful considering we didn't have an official wedding planner.

    Thank you so much, Chris, for taking the time to write such a detailed account of the day from your perspective! It's always so fun to see things from the groom's side! I am loving following you and Ciara on Facebook- please be sure to keep in touch!

    When we photograph a wedding and hear that Rachel is going to be officiating, we know that the ceremony is going to fun, whimsical, and sweet! She has a natural talent for engagement with both couples and guests and it's the little things she does that make photographing ceremonies with her so rewarding; from the moment of reflection where she has the bride & groom stand together and just gaze into each others' eyes to the way she steps back for the first kiss so we have a photo of just the bride & groom, her consideration and attention to detail is remarkable. Everyone loves Rachel, especially us!

    You can tell that Rachael really cares about her clients and puts a lot of time into ensuring that the clients are getting what they want out of their ceremony. As a fellow vendor, i really appreciated how Rachael worked collaboratively and made sure that the couple have the perfect moments for us to capture during the ceremony. I highly recommend Rachael if you’re looking for someone who truly goes above and beyond!
