Practicing throughout the Carolinas and beyond since 2006, it has been a privilege to officiate at a huge variety of wonderful and touching weddings, as well as poignant and heartwarming memorials. I have also been asked to open veteran’s ceremonies, put together ceremonies welcoming newborns and lead formal annual events.
I am a graduate of the Humanist Institute and Dean of Celebrancy at Mindful Paths College, where I teach the performing of weddings and more and certify graduates. I am also President of the Society of Celebrations, a non-profit organization to train and ordain professional celebrants.
“The most rewarding job I know…”
I love what I do. I firmly believe that special ceremonies to mark important events for people and families are some of the things that truly make us a human community.

I specialize in ceremonies where the focus is on people rather than tradition. This is the very definition of a Humanist ceremony.
“Every occasion is first about the people…”
Because I am not tied to any faith tradition, I am free to help you realize any and all ideas you have. Every word, action and song of your ceremony can be completely focused on your experience as a person, as a couple, as a family, as a community. Read less

When Richard and I began searching for an officiant to conduct a non-religious ceremony for our wedding, we had no idea what to expect. Let's face it -- most people don't, right? We figured that most officiants use roughly the same "script" for all couples, with little personalization. When we got in touch with Han, though, we quickly realized that the wedding ceremony could be (and should be!) THE most important part of our special day, and that it truly could be 100% about us as a couple.

We contacted Han 10 months before our wedding date. Han actually responded to the initial inquiry within the hour! He was there to guide us through each and every step of the ceremony-planning process -- from who carries the rings to advice on ceremony readings, and so much more. We drove from Apex to Wilmington to meet with him (our choice) before "booking" his services. When the three of us sat down at lunch, Richard and I immediately felt comfortable around him. He truly wanted to know about our relationship and what makes us unique as a couple, not just about what we needed from him. He listened to our ideas and concerns. He provided around-the-clock assistance and kept the ceremony planning on-track, so that we weren't scrambling to write our vows at the last-minute!

We are SO glad that we booked Han for our wedding -- our friends and family won't stop raving about how special and unique our ceremony was! We actually hope to stay friends with Han, and plan on meeting up with him the next time we are in Wilmington!

Where do I even start with Han Hills? He was EXCELLENT! He wrote our personalized ceremony from scratch. My now husband and I really felt involved in the creation of our ceremony. Han encouraged us to provide as much information as we wanted to be included in our ceremony. People complimented our ceremony like crazy saying how beautiful and intimate it was. Not only was Han's ceremony one of a kind and beautiful, he is a really cool guy and awesome to work with. Because not many people were able to be present at our rehearsal which was 12 noon on Friday, Han offered to lead our non official rehearsal that evening for no additional charge which is unheard of in the wedding industry. He was there to make sure my bridal party knew exactly what to do the day of the ceremony. He was awesome! Looking back, I do not think I could have handled that without his help.

Bottom line, most officiants will stick you and your fiancé's name in their used copy of a wedding transcript, but Han will create a beautiful, elegant and personalized piece for your ceremony. He is a very reasonable price and the value is exceptional. Thank you Han for being so awesome!!!!

Han was amazing! He was very flexible as far as being able to get in touch with him, and changing this on him last minute. He really got to know us and helped write vows that really showed the journey we had traveled together as a couple, making our vows extra special. He gave us exactly what we wanted. With both of our families being of different religions, we wasn't sure how to go about the ceremony. Han helped us find the comfortable in between. Thank you Han for all your help making our day so amazingly special. I would recommend him to anyone getting married.

Han was an amazing officiant. Everyone at our wedding was talking about how beautiful our ceremony was, and how meaningful. Han took the readings I selected along with our short customized vows and created a beautiful, cohesive ceremony that perfectly represented us as a couple. He was kind and understanding throughout the process and he was always able to work around our schedule. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant. We sought him out because we specifically did not want a religious ceremony, and he gave us a ceremony that was very focused on love and commitment, which is exactly what we wanted. I cannot say enough good things...if you are looking for an officiant, stop looking now and hire Han!

Han officiated our ceremony on the beach. Han did an exceptional job from day one. He took the time to get to know us and wanted to know individually a summary of our relationship. Han wrote our marriage vows and we were very happy with what he came up with. We wanted something unique that defined our relationship and love in a non-traditional way. We will forever remember our wedding day. Give Han a chance, you will not be disappointed.

Han was a wonderful officiant! He was always easy to get in touch with, personable, flexible and organized! We did not have a ceremony coordinator at our site and Han took on the role without any hesitation. He helped with lining everyone up, making sure everyone knew what to do, coordinating with our pianist, etc. He had a loud, clear voice as well which helped since our ceremony was outdoors! We'd definitely recommend him.
