Distinctive Wedding Ceremonies

About Distinctive Wedding Ceremonies

Experienced & professional ministers and officiants present ceremonies from the heart.

We marry “PEOPLE” who are in love regardless of sexual orientation, race, religion, national origin, or previous marriages.

 

Each beautiful and distinctive wedding ceremony is created and customized to be uniquely yours. You will have the opportunity to select the descriptions of love and marriage that best resonate with the two of you and choose exactly the words of the vows and promises you will make to one another.

 

Spiritual, non-denominational, interfaith, multi-cultural, civil or secular. Your ceremony will reflect the spiritual tone that best agrees with your personal beliefs.  All spiritual paths and cultural backgrounds are honored.  


Formal, traditional, contemporary, casual or themed. Any location. Pre-prepared ceremonies are also available for those who prefer or only require a simple basic ceremony. Elopements and short-notice weddings also welcome. All of our ministers and officiants are open-minded, non-judgmental, and experienced professionals. (Both male and female available.) 

 

Regularly serving Tennessee, Kentucky, southwest Virginia, western North Carolina, and adjoining areas of SC, GA, AL and IN. Other areas upon request.

 

To help you strengthen your relationship and start your marriage off on a firm foundation, we are pleased to offer an optional premarital counseling course which you can complete in the comfort and privacy of your own home. The course is available to everyone, but provides a special opportunity for Tennessee residents to save $60 on their TN marriage license.

 

Additional customized special services are available including vow renewals, baby welcoming and naming, memorial services/celebration of life, commitment ceremonies, animal blessings, home and business blessings. Ceremonies can be created to celebrate any occasion, and we welcome your inquiry about your special life event.

Thank God for Rev Carolyn! Due to the brides mother being diagnosed with a terminal illness, the wedding had to be moved to Tennesee (we are in Michigan). It had ro be planned for within the week. I called Rev Carolyn and she guided me through it all! I was frantic and stressed to say the least but she was there for me every step of the way!! The brides Mom was too weak to travel and Rev Carolyn drove 30 minutes to where the brides Mom lives to perform the ceremony. She is truly amazing and I was blessed to have found her! I will be forever grateful, and could not have done it without her!

Reverend Carolyn is the best! She is very thorough and even thought of a couple of things that we had missed. She is very considerate, well spoken, and always has a smile on her face. She has been a real blessing to us!
