    Laney is amazing!

    We couldn't ask for a better person to perform our ceremony. We were mixing traditions from two different cultures together and were worried if it can be done smoothly. Laney wrote a beautiful script mixing the two and made it such a wonderful experience for us, our friends and family that guests couldn't stop complimenting it as one of the best wedding ceremonies they've been to. She is very professional, on time and such a great person overall. I am so grateful we could have her as our celebrant.

    A Perfect Fit For Our Wedding Day!

    My fiance and I had a special situation since he is of Christian faith and I am Agnostic so finding the perfect Officiant proved to be more difficult that we had planned. We wanted someone who we both connected with that would make the ceremony feel personal without leaning toward one any one belief system or another. My fiance was the one who came across Laney and after our first meeting I knew she was the perfect fit! Laney took into account all of the things that my fiance and I wanted to include in our ceremony as well as elements we didn't want to have. She didn't push us into anything that we didn't want and was so supportive throughout the whole process. One the actual wedding day, she was prompt, professional, and comforting. She also conducted the ceremony perfectly and helped my fiance and I through it step by step because we were both teary eyed and fumbling with nerves, emotions and excitement. She even gave us a keepsake copy of the ceremony including our vows after the ceremony. Can't thank her enough!

    There are plenty of Wedding Ministers in the Triangle who will tell you that they will perform a secular ceremony for you, however, there are only a few Humanist Celebrants. Humanist Celebrants are endorsed through the American Humanist Society, which was started by Quakers in California and incorporated as a religious group with the IRS back in 1939. Therefore, Humanist Celebrants, are a non-believer's answer to clergy and will always deliver your wedding ceremony with beauty, nature, and a completely authentic and secular heart. Laney is a Humanist Celebrant. If you are looking for a kind and thoughtful Officiant who is authentic when she tells you that your ceremony will be completely secular and focus on your love, then you've found the person you are looking for. She is kind and wonderfully easy to work with, Laney's smile is reassuring, and she has a loving presence that shines through every interaction. I love recommending clients to Laney because I know she will treat them with kindness, honesty, and respect, and deliver the most amazing ceremony.
