Chris was amazing

I am so grateful to Chris for being able to show up on my big day with such little notice. She was able to squeeze me in and provide such a beautiful ceremony. I highly recommend!

Chris is Amazing!

A lot of things went wrong at my wedding, but Chris was the only one I wasn't worried about. She did an amazing job! She was exactly what I was looking for and made my wedding ceremony perfect! She was so laid back, and I annoyed her with countless questions and concerns, and she was excellent! You will not regret it!

Stress and Hassle Free

Chris was extremely kind and welcoming. She seemed genuinely excited and happy for my wife and I to be getting married. She made everything easy and hassle free. She was always available if we needed anything, and worked with us when we needed to make this minute changes to some things. 10/10 would highly recommend Chris!

Chris Adams is my absolute favorite officiant that I work with at Elkridge Furnace Inn. We have been doing ceremonies together for a number of years, so everything always goes off without a hitch. She is very easy to talk to, which makes the couples comfortable, no matter what their faith. Whenever I get the opportunity to recommend Rev. Adams, couples always tell me how much fun they had planning out the ceremony. It is my experience that the ceremony is what usually stresses people out the most. With Rev. Chris鈥檚 guidance, the whole process is much easier. - Becky Kernan, Wedding Coordinator, The Elkridge Furnace Inn
