Best Officiant

We loved getting the chance to meet Doug and work with him! We knew from our first meeting we had to have him officiate our wedding! The entire process of booking him was so easy and we especially enjoyed our meeting with him and getting the chance to talk with him. He was very responsive and organized. Our ceremony was so beautiful because of Doug! He did the most wonderful job officiating our wedding!! Thank you Doug!

Best Ever Officiant!

Doug Farmer married our daughter on June 1st 2019 and did an amazing job of creating a beautiful ceremony that was very touching, personable, and very meaningful. We especially liked his easy-going manner and sense of humor that put us all at ease. Additionally, his ceremony was given as if he had known the Bride and groom personably for many years.
We would highly recommend him as he made our daughter’s wedding day even more special!

A huge thank you to Doug Farmer for officiating our wedding ceremony. We cannot even express our extreme gratitude having him as our wedding officiant. We first spoke with Doug about 8 months prior to our wedding and met with him about 6 months before as we do not live in the Charleston area. He was able to take the information we provided him from that meeting as well as comments we sent him about ourselves and create a ceremony that was intimate as if we had been best friends for many years. He was humorous and charming but didn't overwhelm the ceremony. He was also very professional when some glitches occurred during the ceremony which we are very grateful for. We look forward to meeting up with him again next time we visit Charleston.

Thank you again Doug for going above and beyond to make our ceremony better than we could have ever imagined!

Doug is very pleasant to work with, you feel like he's someone you've known for years. He's easy going and friendly. He tailors each ceremony to the client, so you don't feel like you are getting a "cookie cutter" ceremony. I have enjoyed each of the ceremonies he has performed for our brides and grooms.

Doug is one of my favorite officiants. As a photographer, I've probably worked with Doug no less than 20 times over my 6 year career. Everytime I see him pre ceremony I know we are all in good hands. Doug is incredibly witty and extremely personable which should be qualities you want in an officiant. If you are planning a wedding in Charleston definitely give Doug, the Charleston Wedding Officiant, a call and setup a meeting.
