Ceremony Alchemy pays great attention to the details. Our clients say we are with you every step of the way, creating unique, interesting and captivating ceremonies that literally give you a magical moment, making you feel like your ceremony is the only one on our calendar. One phone call and let us set your crazy wedding mind at ease!

We officiate ceremonies in the states of Maryland, West Virginia, Northern Virginia, DC and Pennsylvania. We offer several services that are too numerous to mention here, but as a brief overview here are the basics:

Fees start as low as $150 for license signing and as high as $3000 if we have to fly somewhere. Most ceremonies average around $600 with rehearsals and travel costing extra. We will come to a location that is more than 2-hour away, but an overnight stay is required, and a hotel room is requested so we can accommodate you and your wedding needs. A $200 retainer holds your date. To see pricing, visit the website at: http://ceremonyalchemy.com/product-category/ceremony-packages/

Fees included research on cultural, social and spiritual ideas, booking and holding your date and of course the ceremony, rehearsals, printing of your ceremony and memorial copies and much more.


If you are active duty military or getting ready to deploy please ask about a 5% discount, giving a discount our way of thanking you for your military service.

Rehearsals are an option I strongly recommend if you have more than 4 people involved in your wedding. Rehearsal fees start at $100 and must be scheduled in advance. If you choose not to rehearse, a rehearsal guide will be provided, to assist you through the process. Get a copy here: http://ceremonyalchemy.com/2016/10/18/rehearsal-guidance/

Meeting you and your fiancee to get your vision of your ceremony is essential. Vows are prepared based on what you choose to share and assistance is given to those who wish to write their own. A draft is emailed to you for your approval and together we work to get the words and the emotional elements appropriate for your ceremony to be memorable. We will meet with you as many times as necessary or appropriate to the packaged you selected. Phone, Skype calls and emails are unlimited.

On the day of your ceremony, if you don’t have an event planner, we will do their best to direct your guests to the right spot, make sure everyone turns off their phones, everyone is in place and the guests stand when the bride enters the room. We will ensure you get through your vow and try to keep you calm.

There is backup officiant just in case your officiant has a family emergency. You will be taken care of at no extra charge and no drama.

Please consider Ceremony Alchemy as your resource for all of your wedding ceremony needs.

We are available for other life ceremonies such as baby blessings, new business blessings and funerals Read less

I stumbled upon Weddings by Sandy, and had the pleasure of having Sandy Queen officiate our wedding. I also had Sandy provide some day of wedding coordination. Sandy was very helpful during the planning process and made it extremely easy to pull together the ceremony we wanted using her ceremony idea book. Sandy was warm and accommodating. Sandy listened to what we wanted and made sure everything was possible. On the day of the wedding, we had rain during the ceremony and Sandy completely rolled with the punches and sped up the ceremony so we could get out of the rain. She read us perfectly. She suggested we re-read our vows and complete the wine box ceremony once we were inside the reception. This was a perfect idea and allowed us to really focus on the vows and have a beautiful redo of part of the ceremony. Sandy was great to work with.

My husband and I first found Sandy Queen on the WeddingsbySandy website. Right from the start, we had a great feeling about her. She returned my initial call while she was driving to a wedding expo and told me that she penciled in our date even though we hadn't spoken about the details at all. Ever since that first conversation, my husband and I have been repeatedly wowed by Sandy's service, guidance, and now friendship. During our meetings to plan our ceremony, Sandy took the time to get to know us individually and as a couple. She provided expert information and friendly suggestions for each element of our ceremony. On our wedding day, she served not only as an officiant, but a support system for us as we prepared. Our ceremony was beautiful and just as we'd imagined. We have received so many compliments about how wonderful the ceremony was and we have Sandy to thank for that! Now as my husband and I are moving on to our married life, we cherish the memories of our wedding day and look forward to continuing our relationship with Sandy as a treasured friend. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much!

Sandy was great to work with! She provided us with all the assistance and the means to build our own ceremony that suited to me and my new husband specifically. So many of my guests asked how we came up with our vows and said they were different and absolutely beautiful. Sandy made sure that we had everything we needed and more. She even happily added a few extras in the ceremony such as a small remembrance ceremony for my husband's and my grandparents. She made our wedding a magical experience and I would choose her again every time.

My wife Wendi and I decided to plan a wedding outside of our home state of Pennsylvania and thus were out of the area of several local wedding officiants. Searching through reviews, we found the weddingsbysandy site and eventually Sandy Queen. As soon as we spoke with Sandy over the phone, we knew we had found our officiant! Sandy met with us for some premarital counseling, and we then were able to customize our wedding ceremony with a program that Sandy helps you prepare. There are limitless options available as Sandy will work with you to create your ideal wedding. She even met with us at the venue to meet the coordinator from the site, and go over anything that may become an issue with an outdoor wedding. The pre-wedding coordination, planning, and counseling was second to none, as Sandy was always available via phone or email. As for the wedding day, Sandy was just as excellent on the big day as she was in the months and days leading to it. So many of our guests commented on how they felt she did an incredible authentic job and thought that she was a family member with how well she knew us and spoke on our behalf. We hope to remain friends with Sandy as we move forward with our marriage. We honestly cannot say enough about this wonderful person who made our special day that much better!

Sandy was a wonderful officiant and so easy to work with. We met with her twice before the big day and she helped us write out our own ceremony with personalized vows. She brought just the right amount of humor to our ceremony and our guests had only positive things to say.

Sandy was wonderful! We felt so much more at ease after our first meeting with her. She provided wonderful material so that we could 100% customize our service, and gave great advice to help us write our vows. She checked in on us a few times after the initial meeting to make sure we were doing ok. She was prompt and professional at the rehearsal and ceremony. She provide us with a wonderful keepsake of our ceremony- and even took care of sending in our marriage license!

Book Sandy Queen as your wedding officiant, she will make your life much easier. She officiated our wedding at Liberty Mountain on 9/10/16. She received rave reviews following our wedding ceremony from many of our wedding guests. She made planning our wedding ceremony simple as can be. We don't plan to get married again lol, but if we need an officiant in our future we will hands down hire Sandy Queen again.

Sandy Queen was absolutely wonderful!! She was so helpful in so many ways (Music, suggestions, programs, advice...you name it) She was also literally the ONLY vendor (of the many that all us ladies must deal with when planning a wedding) to always promptly return my calls (day or night) with any question that I might have had, Lord knows I had a few! :) Well I can now say she is more then a vendor to us....she is a friend. Thank you Sandy Queen!!

If you are considering booking Rev. Sandy to officiate your wedding please do! She was wonderful to work with. The ceremony is the most important part of your wedding day and I cannot stress enough that you should hire someone with lots of experience like Rev. Sandy. My fiancé (now husband) and I met Rev. Sandy at a bridal show and we loved her , but were still not sure if we were going to book her. We then went to another bridal show and spoke with Rev. Sandy again. We ended scheduling a meeting together and she showed us examples from her past weddings and showed us different options for structuring our own ceremony. We never had to worry that there would be any problems with the ceremony because Sandy was always available to meet and very responsive via email to make any updates on our ceremony. My husband and I were able to both bring our ideas to Sandy and she turned them into a beautiful ceremony that we were very happy with. We received many compliments about how wonderful the ceremony was! Thanks Rev. Sandy!

Sandy Queen officiated our wedding this past July and was absolutely amazing! She was so responsive and so happy to meet with us as much as we wanted before our big day. She made the process easy by giving us a book of possible ceremony parts and she encouraged us to tailor any of it to fit our needs. She was constantly telling us to let her know if we needed anything. After we put our ceremony together, she met with us to go over it to make sure we were happy with it. She was prompt for our rehearsal and our big day. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and exactly what we wanted. People are still talking about how much they enjoyed the ceremony. She was also very affordable compared to other officiants in our area. We would definitely recommend Sandy Queen for any wedding!
