Whether you are joining together as a husband and wife or as a same sex couple, your ceremony is the most important part of your wedding. I work with you to create ceremonies that are meaningful, mindful, memorable and reflective of your values and beliefs. I listen to you and you have total control of the words said at your ceremony. I am an all-faiths minister and a graduate of the Celebrant USA Foundation. I am comfortable with religious, interfaith, spiritual or civil ceremonies. I create one-of-a-kind ceremonies that reflect the love you feel for one another.

For a free consultation you can contact me through the "Contact" button on this website, through the "Contact" page on my website (www.creativeceremonies.biz), or you can email me directly at ginchi@comcast.net, or give me a phone call at 434-245-5224.

I perform ceremonies in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the surrounding counties of Albemarle, Louisa, Nelson, Greene and Fluvanna. I also perform ceremonies in sites on the Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National Park and on the Blue Ridge Parkway, as well as in Elkton, Harrisonburg, Shenandoah, Luray, and the counties of Page, Augusta and Rockingham.

Virginia performed our elopement ceremony for us on April 3. She was amazing! We weren't really sure what we wanted, but we knew we didn't want traditional vows. She listened to what we were looking for and was able to find us several sets of vows we could choose from. She kept in contact with us and was always quick to answer our emails and since we lived six hours apart, we had phone meetings. She was very kind and professional and what she performed for us fit us perfectly.

We waited 30 years for the opportunity to marry, and Virginia made our day everything we had hoped! She was very supportive, incredibly responsive and flexible, and offered suggestions that mapped exactly to our needs because she clearly had our best interests in mind. Ours was a casual and intimate event, but it's easy to see how she can customize to support any manner of ceremony. Highly recommended in all regards!

My wife and I were married in October at the Inn at Willow Grove in Orange, Virginia, and Virginia Moore was our officiant. We couldn't be more pleased with her services, as she crafted our ceremony around our interests and beliefs, and made us feel at ease from beginning to end. Working with Virginia was extremely easy. We planned our marriage ceremony in one week, following the Virginia Supreme Court ruling and were fortunate that she was available on our planned date. The ceremony was absolutely perfect in every way and truly prepared for us. When re-reading our vows, the words spoken during our hand fasting ritual, and the thought provoking words of our officiant, there was no question that this ceremony described our personalities and our love for one another in every way. We would definitely recommend Virginia Moore for her services.

Virginia was such a joy to work with. She made our ceremony so personal and memorable. We had many of our guests coming to us with high praises about Virginia's ceremony. She was easy to work with as we planned our wedding from hundreds of miles away.

Book her!! Virginia was incredible. I had so many of my guests say that they LOVED the ceremony. Some friends even told me that it was the best ceremony that they had ever been to. She had us all laughing and crying while she told our story. My husband and I were in touch with her for months leading up to the day. When she gave us our first rough draft of the ceremony, I cried at how she perfectly nailed the people we are and the relationship that we have. I would highly recommend Virginia.

I can't say enough positive things about our experience with Virginia. Our whole correspondence and ceremony planning was done via e-mail, and her quick and thorough responses made it all very low-stress. As a laid-back couple, planning our elopement was meant to be easy, and Virginia definitely made it that way. She knew what questions to ask in order to create the ideal ceremony for us. We LOVED it. It was short and so very sweet, just as we had wanted. Virginia's enthusiasm for love and life was exactly what we were looking for. The first time we met was just moments before our elopement, but it felt like we had known her for a long time. Thanks, Virginia, for a beautiful, unforgettable day.

we loved working with Virginia!! she really took the time to get to know us and create a very unique ceremony for us. We are not religious and found her to be so refreshing after struggling to find a celebrant who would do a non-denominational ceremony (who knew that would be such a chore?). She really knew what she was doing and helped organize our sort of chaotic rehearsal with complete professionalism. She was also very patient when working with some of our family who do not speak english. We enjoyed working with her so much (and so did our family) that she will be the celebrant in my brother's upcoming wedding this June. We are so excited to work with her again and make even more family memories!

I am not sure where to begin with my review for Virginia, our wedding officiant. My husband's grandmother, whom we are both very close to, is a minister and was supposed to marry us. A couple months before the wedding, her health began to decline and she was unsure if she would even be able to attend the wedding, let alone officiate it. So my husband and I planned a trip to Charlottesville (we live in DC) to coordinate with our vendors and meet with officiants to see who we connected with. We met with two officiants and immediately after sitting with Virginia, we knew we wanted her to marry us. Even in that initial meeting before she knew we were going to hire her, she really wanted to get to know us. My husband is quite private about 'feelings', but even he felt comfortable with her almost immediately. It was difficult to choose someone to replace my husband's grandmother, but Virginia did such an amazing job!

We had a very small wedding, only our immediate family and grandparents were in attendance. Our families were blown away by how personal and customized our ceremony was. Between the one meeting with had with Virginia, email correspondence and 'homework' she gave us to fill out, you would have really thought that she knew us our entire lives. The ceremony was anything but cookie-cutter, everything about it was customized to us as a couple, which made it so special for us and also our families. Thanks again, Virginia, you were amazing!
