Marriage Officiant- Authorized to perform marriages in Virginia and Maryland

CONGRATULATIONS!

Upon retiring from the Circuit Court of Fairfax County at the end of 2000, I was appointed as a Marriage Celebrant. Since that time I have married over 2000 couples. My hours are very flexible and I enjoy traveling to new locations. A commitment of love is one of the most meaningful moments in a persons life. Some couples decide to celebrate this special moment with a simple private ceremony. Others decide to have a large celebration to invite their family and friends to celebrate with them.
Whether you decide to get married at the Courthouse, in your home, in a park, a historic mansion or in a ballroom the ceremony will be very beautiful and meaningful.

It would be an honor to help you start your new life together as a married couple!

If you are planning to renew your wedding vows, I would be happy to assist you.

Also available for destination weddings

Available 7 days a week

On the preferred list of several area wedding sites.

Also available for rehearsals, vendor selection and planning

We found Diane a bit late in the game after we did some research and found that VA has some pretty strict laws as to who can marry you. My husband is Jewish and I'm Catholic, so we wanted to honor both of our upbringings while maintaining an overall non-spiritual-specific vibe. Diane sent me some great reading ideas and a wonderful ceremony that hit exactly the right tone that we were looking for. She also was flexible the day of in that our ceremony site changed due to rain. For the actual ceremony itself she adjusted well to my husband and my energies (which was very goofy happy) and made a joke in the middle of the ceremony that was really playful but didn't lose the serious tone of the moment. Glad we went with her!

My husband I were looking for an officiant that would allow us to semi-customize our ceremony, but would also help us with maintaining some traditional (but not religious) elements, and Diane was the perfect fit. She met with us to go over a few options, as well as provided a nice selection of potential ceremonies. On the day of our wedding, she showed up well before the ceremony to take care of all the paperwork, and her delivery of our ceremony was exactly what we wanted: thoughtful, heartfelt and genuine. Diane was a great officiant and we highly recommend her.

My husband and I booked Diane Stanley for our wedding on 10/3/15 after our original officiant passed away. From the moment we met Diane, we knew that was who we wanted to marry us. She has a wonderful presence about her and is a beautiful speaker. Many people (including ones who were already married) told us that our ceremony was one of the most touching and thoughtful they had ever been too, and we know a lot of that was thanks to Diane. Her flow and order for everything was incredible, and she gave us a lot of great ideas. She is genuine and warm and I am so thankful given the sudden turn of events, that we were able to find her and have her be available on such short notice.

We needed an officiant for an outdoor wedding and found Diane through the website. She was easy to work with. She provided sample readings which didn't end up being used but it was nice to have the selection. She arrived early and made the bride and groom at ease. The wedding was a little delayed but we knew Diane was flexible so it worked out. Would definitely recommend using Diane's services!

We contacted Diane to do our marriage on short notice - we were getting married for legal and admin purposes but were holding a ceremonial event a month later. Diane was responsive and got back to us right away, she offered several different evenings when she could come to our home to officiate and brought a brief ceremony to us. We were married in our kitchen! She was professional, cheerful and entirely lovely to have. Her comments were warm and thoughtful. We very much appreciated having her as our officiant.

Diane was amazing! She met with us weeks before to get to know us. We enjoyed a long conversation at a Panera in Reston. She was personable and kind. Diane really wanted to get to know us. Our wedding ceremony was more beautiful than we could have imagined. She gave us several suggestions to make our ceremony perfect. We asked her to stay for the reception. My family loved getting to know her and she was a great guest. We are so blessed to have found her!

Diane is absolutely wonderful! She officiated our same sex marriage 11/11/14 at Great Falls Park in Northern Virginia. She was not only obviously happy and excited for us, but she was also sensitive to our preferences for the ceremony. She respected our preferred verbiage and changes we made to suit our family. She was very communicative and well prepared from start to finish of working with her. Her experience is apparent. She kept our ceremony light, fun, but also serious by nature of the life commitment that my partner and I made to one another. She promptly filed our paperwork afterwards and we are now legally married. We highly recommend her, thank you so much Diane!

From the moment that we sat down with Diane, we knew that we wanted her to be a part of our wedding ceremony. She is very kind, has beautiful work, and provides everything that you need from start to finish. We used two of her readings, which were just beautiful. Our guests were raving about both. Her ceremony included everything that we needed, she has a good sense of humor, and really tunes in to the love and unity that is present in the room. She responds to emails within a timely manner and is flexible to your needs. If you are looking for someone to serve as your officiant, we highly recommend meeting with Diane.
