Hi, my name is Carly Miller! I’m an ordained minister in the Universal Brotherhood Movement and excited to officiate weddings for any couple regardless of religious belief, gender, sexuality, race, culture, ability, size, class, or any other group. I hold an MTS from Duke Divinity School and love learning about any religious beliefs that are important to you, but am just as happy to perform a non-religious ceremony. I love being a part of geek/nerd culture, some of my favorite things are Harry Potter, Marvel, DC, Disney, and Star Trek and I would love incorporating those or any other passions into your wedding ceremony. I love celebrating love in whatever way is important to you. I completed the Equality Institute's course on LGBTQ+ weddings and I’m committed to using the correct names and pronouns for everyone and celebrating all gender expressions.

We had our wedding ceremony recently. Carly provided us a lot of help. She sent us a lot of references that we didn't have to prepare our wedding from scratch. Our wedding ceremony was great, we had a great experience!Sent on 11/22/2020

Best Officiant ever!!!!
I was very pleased!!!! Carly fulfilled all our needs. She responded immediately when I had questions, she suggested things I had not thought of and most of all she was so uplifting and positive. I felt like I knew her. We did a small elopement due to our jobs overseas and had little time but, later we are going to have a large ceremony and we want her to be the officiant for that as well. Thank you, Carly for EVERYTHING!!!!!!Sent on 02/28/2020

Carly was phenomenal! She couldn't be kinder and more flexible if she tried. Covid really threw everyone for a loop and trying to throw a wedding together in two months was interesting to say the least. We had first met Carly at the Rainbow Wedding Network in Raleigh. My wife and I liked her instantly and knew she would be high on our list of wedding officiants. We were worried that because it was such short notice that we would not be able to book her. However, she was able to squeeze us in between the other weddings she was working with. She was very openminded and we loved how enthusiastic she was to learn and incorporate our Halloween themes and my wife's Pagan beliefs into a spooktacular affair. Even though she had never done a wedding with some of the ceremonies we incorporated we knew we were in good hands. She was a joy to work with, very professional, but approachable and always willing to work with us. We were not able to have the "dream" wedding we originally planned but with the help of Carly it turned out even better. If you find yourself with the opportunity to work with Carly, take it! Thanks again for making our day magical and beautiful.Sent on 01/22/2021
