Each beautiful and distinctive wedding ceremony is created and customized to be uniquely yours. You will have the opportunity to select the descriptions of love and marriage that best resonate with the two of you and choose exactly the words of the vows and promises you will make to one another.

Spiritual, non-denominational, interfaith, multi-cultural, civil or secular. Your ceremony will reflect the spiritual tone that best agrees with your personal beliefs. All spiritual paths and cultural backgrounds are honored.

Formal, traditional, contemporary, casual or themed. Any location. No restrictions on second marriages. Pre-prepared ceremonies are also available for those who prefer or only require a simple basic ceremony. Elopements & short notice weddings also welcome. All of our ministers and officiants are open-minded, non-judgmental, and experienced professionals. (Both male and female available.) Regularly serving Tennessee, Kentucky, southwest Virginia, western North Carolina, northern South Carolina, northern Georgia, and other areas on request.

To help you strengthen your relationship and start your marriage off on a firm foundation, we are pleased to offer an optional premarital counseling course which you can complete in the comfort and privacy of your own home. The course is available to everyone, but provides a special opportunity for Tennessee residents to save $60 on their TN marriage license.

Additional customized special services are available including vow renewals, baby welcoming and naming, memorial services/celebration of life, commitment ceremonies, spiritual unions, animal blessings, home and business blessings. Ceremonies can be created to celebrate any occasion, and we welcome your inquiry about your special life event. Read less

Rev. Carolyn was the absolute best choice for us as an officiant to preside over our wedding. As a lesbian couple our first thought was that we wanted to be completely comfortable with the person officiating our wedding. She went above and beyond to find out stuff about us and our relationship to make us comfortable. She called and spoke with each of us and kept up with us right up until the wedding. She even came to our requested location which was up at the top of a mountain. We had a phenomenal experience with her. She was very professional and all around perfect. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know who needs an officiant to do their wedding.

Rev. Claiborne was very responsive and professional, as well as warm and personable. She was sensitive to our needs and traveled to another state to perform our ceremony, as our marriage is not legal in our home state. She had a back-up plan in place in case of inclement weather, which, luckily, we didn't have to use, but it was nice to have the security. With her several choices of ceremony styles, I can recommend her services to all couples.

First off Rev. Carolyn is a lifesaver.Our original officiant was not going to be able to attend, and he decided to tell me this 4 days before the wedding. PANIC MODE. That night we started the hunt for someone new and my stepmom found Distinctive Wedding services. Well I called them the next day, and was able to directly speak with Rev. Carolyn. Thankfully she was available, otherwise I don't know what we would have done! We talked over the phone and through email through the next few days figuring out how to do the ceremony. She also gave advise and suggestions to make the ceremony last just a little longer, and other handy advise that I don't think anybody else would have thought of. SHe is a lifesaver and my now husband (!!!!) and I thank her very much. SHe is super professional and knows what she is talking about. Even though we had an extremely short time to get things together, because of her we were able to get it done and have an absolutely wonderful ceremony. She offers many of services and I highly recommend her to anyone who is getting married.

Choosing an Officiant was probably the hardest thing for my now Husband and I. Neither of us are terribly religious, and we wanted to find an officiant who embraced our uniqueness and didn't force us down a specific path. After reading many reviews and horror stories from other officiants, I finally called Rev. Caroline. I knew from the first minute I spoke with her that she was EXACTLY what we were hoping for. She spent over an hour speaking with me during our very first conversation, and it truly felt like speaking with a friend. You can tell she cares about every couple she comes into contact with, and wants to make sure that you find exactly the right ceremony for you. She had so many helpful tips and hints, and more information than I imagined existed for ceremonies.
We are so happy with how our ceremony turned out. Rev Doug was the person who actually did the ceremony, and he was just as wonderful as Rev Caroline. We had guests come up to us during the reception to tell us how beautiful they thought our ceremony and vows were. I would absolutely recommend them to my own family. Great experience!

Rev. Carolyn was the best. She assisted Heather and I in making our Commitment Ceremony personal and reflective of us. She responded very quickly to any questions. She was patient as we worked out the details and very efficient in returning the final copy with suggestions and questions. Her layout made it really easy to have the most congruent and timely ceremony with no glitches. Heather and I had our a do it yourself ceremony at our house and the stress relief by having Rev Carolyn as our officiant is beyond words.

I couldn't have ever imagined that our commitment ceremony could have been so amazing. Rev. Carolyn Claiborne was so welcoming and so friendly. She treated Tabitha and I like she had known us for years. The ceremony was so touching and so sincere. It was the greatest day of our lives!!!!! Thank you so much for your kindness and your sincerity.

I used Unity Minister-Officiant Services for my April 5th wedding in Knoxville, TN. I am so pleased that I did. We did a few 'interviews' with other local officiants and did not find someone that felt very flexible and comfortable to us until we spoke with Rev. Carolyn. My, now husband and I, are not religious and wanted a ceremony that would accommodate. We did not feel judged at all and were welcomed warmly by both Rev. Carolyn and Rev. Laura Beth. They made the day feel very relaxed and not stressful, they were very professional, and on time. We used the custom ceremony and paid just a bit more for it but I am glad that we did. We got to include exactly what we wanted and leave out things that did not fit us. In short, I would definitely recommend using Rev. Carolyn and Rev. Laura Beth at Unity Minister-Officiant Services to any of my friends or family thinking of getting married.
