Marriage Officiant- Authorized to perform marriages in Virginia
Non-religious Ceremony, Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony from all Religions -Renewal of Vows


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.

"I Love What I Do"

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!

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.

We knew we wanted to have a fairly small at-home wedding including family and friends, but we didn't know who would conduct the ceremony. With a little investigating, it was our good fortune to find Diane. She was most helpful in planning our ceremony with suggested readings to choose from. She was cool and calm as we scrambled waiting for the weather to clear so we could have it outside (it cleared just in time), And most importantly, she conducted the ceremony with just the right mix of authority, sincerity and warmth. Thanks, Diane, for helping to make our day very special!

Went about wedding planning in an unconventional way, and wanted to find an officiant who could do the ceremony within a couple of week's time. Diane was great about suggesting locations, was very thorough, and we very much appreciated all that she did.

Diane was recommended to us by friends so we knew that she would be great! My husband and I are not religions and wanted to have a quick but meaningful ceremony (quick because it was outside in July!!) Diane met with us before the wedding and shared some of her favorite readings with us and took into account what we wanted from our ceremony. When we discussed it being quick, she agreed, but also suggested that if it is too quick it may not be as memorable as we would like. That really stuck with us and we considered that as we chose our readings and wrote our vows. We would highly recommend her!!

Diane did a lovely job with our wedding on 10/5! We are both non-religious and didn't feel comfortable having a minister perform a non-denominational ceremony. We found Diane on Wedding Wire and as soon as we spoke with her on the phone we knew we had our officiant. We loved her standard vows and added two readings we chose. She fit the readings into our ceremony perfectly and all our guests loved her. Her rate is SO reasonable and she was so sweet and warm. We loved everything about our wedding. Thank you Diane!

There's not much I can say that others haven't already. Diane was helpful and had a nice, pre-designed ceremony that we could use straight up or adjust to our needs. We used it almost exactly and added in a reading she showed us that we really liked. We wanted a short-and-sweet ceremony, and she did an excellent job pacing it so it wasn't TOO short. It was quick but it didn't feel like you blinked and missed it.

Diane did a wonderful job as the officiant for our wedding. Lou and I were looking for a ceremony that was both memorable and beautiful. Neither of us practices a religion, but were both raised with it. So we wanted to find a balance. Diane provided a suggested ceremony that was exactly what we were looking for. She worked with us to add a few personal touches and did a great job working them in. We loved our ceremony!

We had such a good time with Diane. She was so easy to work with. I highly recommend Diane as a marriage officiant. Her husband even came to the reception and they won the anniversary dance for being married the longest! They had some great advice for the newly married couple!
