I'm Susan Marlan, an Interfaith Officiant. I officiate beautifully composed ceremonies that will express your dreams of your Very Special Day. Your ceremony will be as creative or traditional as you wish, steeped in romance, warmth and sincerity; created with you and complimented by over 27 years of my professional and personal attention to every detail. Your love and relationship will shine through while reflecting your beliefs and traditions.

The finest compliments I receive are referrals from my couples and their families. Within one family, I officiated ceremonies for three sisters, their cousins, then returned in a few years for their baby blessing ceremonies and anniversaries.

"I absolutely love what I do and I know that love shines through in each ceremony I perform."

Couples referred to me are in the hands of a poised, experienced professional who truly cares about their happiness and satisfaction. With fresh insight, imagination and competence we will create a ceremony that is unique only to you.

"Each ceremony is written from the heart, delivered with eloquence and sincerity"

I officiate and co-officiate Weddings, Anniversaries, Re-Marriages, Renewal of Vows and Baby Naming Ceremonies.

Your ceremony may be civil with no mention of God. It may be for two people of the same religion, or it may be non-religion specific, yet spiritual. It may blend different religions, or be constructed about a common belief. All will have deep elements of love and romance, filled with personal touches that relate to your lives as a couple.

If you choose to celebrate your familial backgrounds by incorporating rituals, prayers and readings that are reflective of your heritage, these can be adapted in a universal context for interfaith, intercultural and interracial marriages. I have extensive experience working with cultures from all around the world and will guide you through this process. These traditions may be celebrated with or without religious context. Read less

Susan made our ceremony truly special. It is hard not to get caught up in the party aspect of the wedding, but the ceremony and the marriage is the most important part. Her ceremony was beautiful, and it truly felt personal to us and our love. She offers a ton of customization so that it can fit what you are looking for. We opted for a love letter box and her presentation of it was one of the most beautiful I have ever heard. We received a ton of compliments on the ceremony and Susan was a pleasure to work with.

Susan married us on quite short notice and I really couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect little ceremony! She met with us just before the ceremony to go over the sections and took care to ask us what we would like to in/exclude making it exactly what we were looking for. Susan's warmth and friendliness that carried in her style, tone and approach made me feel very comfortable and alleviated the nervousness I felt at the start.

Susan was amazing! We had a medieval wedding and she did her best to fit in which I appreciate. She was very patient as we were running very late. She also was respectful of our desire to have a non-religious ceremony. She also did a wonderful memoriam to my husband's late mother. You will be very pleased with her! Thanks, Susan!

When my husband and I began planning our wedding, we agreed it was imperative that our officiant be kind, well-spoken, and happy to perform a non-denominational ceremony. Susan was our first choice, and we are soooo incredibly pleased with our decision. Her ceremony was eloquent and romantic, and included all of the personal touches we wanted, and her delivery was comfortable and clear (despite the chilly weather & wind!!). It was very obvious to us and our guests that she's been doing this a long time, and we had several guests remark how much they enjoyed her reading. Prior to the wedding, we had one miscommunication about the ceremony time (which could have been my fault, to be honest), but she handled it very professionally and was able to work everything out without us having to make any changes. I would absolutely recommend Susan for both religious and non-religious ceremonies!!

We had so many compliments about Susan from our wedding guests!! Even though we had never met Susan in person and only had a few phone calls prior to our big day, our ceremony felt personal and flowed perfectly. During the planning process, she was extremely helpful in giving us ideas of elements we could include for our ceremony and accomodated all of our requests. We would highly recommend anyone getting married in the Asheville area to consider Susan to officiate their wedding!!
