We marry “PEOPLE” who are in love regardless of sexual orientation, race, religion, national origin, or previous marriages.



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. Pre-prepared ceremonies are also available for those who prefer or only require a simple basic ceremony. Elopements and 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, and adjoining areas of SC, GA, AL and IN. Other areas upon 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, 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

My husband and I were married by Rev Carolyn in Tennessee in March and we have nothing but good things to say. Before we hired Rev Carolyn, I had hired a minister that contacted me once about the price and then was impossible to get ahold of and I was afraid that all ministers would be the same, but then I found Rev Carolyn. From my first phone conversation with Rev Carolyn I knew that I was in good hands. My husband and I both agreed that we did not want a traditional service and Rev Carolyn was very accomidating, providing me with pages and pages of wedding service ideas. My husband and I loved going through the potential services and were so pleased to find our perfect service in the packet that Rev Carolyn sent. The day of the wedding was more than perfect. Rev Carolyn was amazing and we couldn't have asked for anyone better. Both my family and my husband's enjoyed Rev Carolyn, and I got so many comments on how beautiful our personalized service was. As a new bride, I know how hard it is to put together a wedding, and how important your vows are. My husband and I encourage you to talk with Rev Carolyn! She helped make our day perfect and I know that she will make yours perfect as well!

We loved every single bit of the ceremony and everything Rev Carolyn done for us. She gave us advice where it was our first wedding and helped guide us through any questions we had along the way. She saved us tons of money by telling us about the marriage preparation course available which we were really wanting to do before marriage and thanks to her we could afford it. She is a great listener and is excellent at what she does. She answered every time I called. Words really can’t express just how happy we are.
Thank you so much everything! The wedding was exactly what we were hoping for and then way more! You, Carolyn, are amazing! From the time I found you, I knew that their was no better fit for me and him for our special day. Heaven sent! My groom thought you were awesome and that I picked the perfect person for us.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with both Reverend Carolyn and Reverend Lora Beth; both of them were extremely sweet and professional. Being from out of state, it was difficult for us to find officiant services at a reasonable price. Luckily, I happened across Distinctive Wedding Ceremonies during one of my online searches and we could not have asked for a better officiant for our wedding. I would certainly recommend them!

Out of all of the tasks for our wedding, finding the officiant seemed the most daunting. My husband and I do not belong to a church and we are not very religious, but we wanted something more than a standard justice of the peace wedding script. It was important to us that we found someone who would be willing to listen to our ideas and help us to craft something that would fit our personalities and beliefs. We are so glad we found Rev. Carolyn and Distinctive Wedding Ceremonies! Rev. Carolyn was very responsive. After a few phone calls and email exchanges, we knew she was the right choice. She provided some great information and helped us to finalize the ceremony in plenty of time. Rev. Doug conducted the actual ceremony, and he was great! Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted! We would highly recommend Distinctive Wedding Ceremonies!

Rev Claiborne did an amazing service for us and I would highly recommend her. My husband, myself, and our baby were the only attendees with no guests and she made sure her friend took pictures for us so we could have memories from our special day. She was very flexible and was willing to do our ceremony on Easter Sunday with only a few days notice. Thanks Rev Claiborne!

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.
