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.
“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

For my husband and I, the main reason why we picked Han was the fact that he does not do religious ceremonies. He makes the whole speech about the couple and the experiences that brought them together. When we first spoke to him, we were surprised that he gets more involved than merely officiating the marriage (planning the logistics of the processional and the recessional, reaching out to vendors, and making sure we weren't missing anything). We also appreciated how he thoroughly works to make the perfect ceremony script by getting to know the whole history of your relationship and making any changes that fit your style. In short, Han's work is perfect, beautiful, and brilliant!!

Han made our ceremony so personal and beautiful. We wanted something short and simple but really tailored to our experiences as a couple and reflect our relationship. He did just that. I received several comments on how much people enjoyed the ceremony. I have been to several weddings and I can honestly say, my ceremony was far more enjoyable, beautiful than most. Han was attentive, interesting, kind, and professional. We are very pleased he was a part of our special day.

Han Hills did a wonderful job at our wedding. He was adamant that the ceremony be personalized and celebrated who we were both as individuals and as a couple. He was patient, kind, and very understanding with what each of us desired. He could not have been more accommodating and genuine in his passion to deliver a unique experience on the most significant day in our lives. Even after the wedding our guests commented on how good he was. I would highly recommend Han hills!

Working with Han was wonderful! My fiance and I are not religious so we wanted an officiant who would help us come up with a ceremony that was personal and traditional without the religious references and Han nailed it! Not only was our ceremony completely customized based on a brief bio we sent him, but he was so flexible and able to add in a memory for my aunt who had passed at the very last minute. Since our ceremony was on the beach we wanted a short but sweet ceremony and ours lasted no more than 30 minutes- I can not begin to say how many compliments we had on the ceremony words, Han's written introduction and the length.

Before our wedding day, Han checked in monthly with us to ensure he had everything he needed and just to see how we were feeling. He gave us plenty of information about applying for a marriage license and helped us organize every detail of the ceremony. MUCH appreciated from a busy bride!

I would recommend Han to anyone that asks! He is so easy to work with and made our ceremony one to remember.

In short, Han was excellent. He created a personalized and unique service for us, and was genuinely attentive to including details that were very true to our relationship history. His professionalism and comfort in leading everyone through the rehearsal settled my anxieties, and significantly reduced the stress level. We were genuinely overwhelmed by the beauty and personalized feel of the ceremony. We found Han via an internet search for humanist/non-denomination officiants in the area, and finished the wedding feeling quite connected to him despite our limited time in his presence. His professionalism, easy interpersonal style, and dedication to making our wedding feel unique and true to our personalities made our day nothing short of perfect. We are very grateful for Han's efforts in making our wedding ceremony so special!

Han was the perfect officiant for us. He was extremely helpful to us throughout our planning process, had multiple phone/skype conversations with us and even drove over an hour to meet us for lunch. He gave us many suggestions as to different options we had for our ceremony and helped us word the perfect vows to each other. At the rehearsal dinner and wedding - he was everything we could have hoped for. He was friendly, excited and made everyone feel comfortable. During the ceremony, he was the perfect combination of funny and serious and made the experience enjoyable for everyone involved. We had MANY people come up to us during the reception and after the wedding to say how much they enjoyed listening to him perform our ceremony. Han listened to everything we said and asked for, and you could tell that he really wanted to help to make our wedding day perfect. He was patient, honest and reliable. We couldn't have asked for anything better!!!

Han was an amazing officient. He got to know us and customized our ceremony to be exactly what we wanted. He provided many recommendations and allowed us to proof the ceremony beforehand. There were no suprises and he even printed out all the readings and our vows. He also checked our vows beforehand to make sure they were similar since we did not share our vows until the ceremony. He constantly called to check up on us and make sure we were on track with planning. I recommend Han to anyone who wants a beautiful ceremony that is customized to fit your personality.

We are very appreciative of Han's service. He provided an amazing, custom-tailored service that was perfect for us. All of the attendees kept commenting on his beautiful speaking voice and many asked how long we had known him (we had never formally met prior to the wedding). I would highly recommend using Han Hills for your event - he will make it extra special.

Absolutely wonderful!! Han was a lifesaver for us from the first time we talked! He understood our specific and unique needs for our wedding and hit the ground running to tailor the perfect ceremony for us! Han never judged or criticized and had creative solutions to everything. Most of all, he writes an original ceremony for every wedding! That is just so special! He respected that my husband and I were too nervous to write our own vows and he designed vows on our behalf that were just perfect! My husband and I both cried when we read the first draft! We now have the vows printed and framed to cherish forever. Thank you Han!!!

I know, I know, 5 stars all around. When vendors want you to put reviews on places, you're most likely going to see 5's all down the row. If I could give 10 stars, no.. 1000 stars, I would!! here's why:

I was struggling to find an officiant that I though really worked with our wedding, our personalities, and also someone that didn't subscribe to the cookie-cutter, fill-in-the-blanks, wedding ceremony that most people get. Han started with meeting us, having us both write our version of our love story separately, and then sending those stories to him so that he could get an idea of who we were and what defined our relationship. Within 2 drafts, he had the perfect ceremony reading - he really understood us as a couple! Everyone talked about how perfect the reading was, and how it fit us so well! Other vendors already asked me for his contact information and spoke so highly of him (I wish he would have heard all of the glowing remarks).

If you want a wedding as unique as you are, for your sakes, call Han Hills! RIGHT NOW. Not only was he an amazing officiant, but getting to know him, he is just a great person all-around. He has told me about all the countless times he has worked with a couple having constraints (financially, short-notice weddings, far away weddings, etc).. and we didn't necessarily have any extenuating circumstances quite like that, but it is comforting to know that the flexibility would have been there had we needed it.

Thank you SO SO SO much! The wedding was flawless because of him and all of our amazing vendors!

Han made our day special. Our ceremony was personalized just for us, and was absolutely perfect. He was quick to respond, very thorough, and a hell of a deal. It's hard for an atheist couple to find someone who doesn't want to put religion into their ceremony, but Han was a blessing (lol) to us. I don't think that anyone at the wedding even realized there was no mention of god. It was absolutely beautiful, and we couldn't have asked for a better officiant. Thanks, Han, for taking your time to work with us and make it one-of-a-kind.

Han Hills officiated our wedding on July 14th 2013. I found Han through his website leapofhumanity.com. When I first contacted Han over the phone we spoke for an hour. Discussing how my husband and I first met, what we do for a living, do for fun etc. Talking to Han I felt like I knew him for years as opposed to only a few minutes.
We set up a place and time to meet and talk about our plans, and we sat and talked for about and hour. My husband really liked Hans and thought he was great and perfect to be our officiant. Han asked us to provide him with a small biography of our relationship so he could create an opening for the ceremony tailored to our lives.
On the day of our ceremony Han was very organized and professional. The way he incorporated how we met and the hardships we have accomplished was amazing and so special to us. Han truly loves his career as it is clearly shown through his work.
Han was not only our officiant but a member of our family that day. He posed for pictures, eased nerves and even played with our dog. I am so thankful that I found Han. His beautiful words will stay with us forever.

Han was our perfect officiant and became part of our family and a true confidant in the process.

My fiance and I were very conflicted when it came to choosing an officiant for our wedding. Coming from two different religious backgrounds, it was so important to us that we had a ceremony not surrounded by religious traditions, but that fully encapsulated who we were as a couple and what we believed in. Through skype communication and frequent phone conversations, Han was able to help us create a ceremony that fit us as a couple. Not only were my husband and I very pleased with the way the ceremony went off, we were complemented several times on how personal and "us" the whole experience was.

We couldn't have been blessed than having Han as our officiant. He saw us through the whole process, helped us orchestrate a beautiful wedding, and became a true friend in the process.

Han Hills exceeded all of our expectations. We hired him to be the officiant for our non-religious ceremony and he was extremely helpful and thoughtful in helping us create our vows. He had wonderful ideas for ways in which we could arrange the ceremony to create a harmonious flow that would be memorable for the wedding party but also enjoyable for the guests. Han was lovely to work with and has an excellent sense of humor. He was consistently pleasant and willing to be flexible in his plans in order to help us achieve our vision. He traveled several hours to be at our ceremony and he was very punctual and organized. I honestly cannot say enough kind things about him and that still would not do him justice. He helped us execute our vision with eloquence and grace. We are so grateful to him for being a part of our big day. It wouldn't have been the same without him! Our wedding guests are still talking about what a great officiant we had :). Hiring Han Hills was the best decision we made in planning our wedding. He really made an effort to go "above and beyond" and was a paragon of professionalism. He is a stellar officiant!

We were very happy with the ceremony that Han helped us create. He worked with us beforehand to get to know us better and create a ceremony personalized for us. We chose to have a family member do a reading, a sand ceremony, and exchange of rings. We each wrote a statement to the to the other and Han wrote a beautiful opening statement that was about the 2 of us and not just cookie cutter and then we chose to have Han do more traditional vows that we repeated after him. Han even asked what our wedding colors were so that he could match. We were worried that some of our family members would realize that it was a humanist ceremony, but no one even noticed the lack of religion! Many of our guests said afterwards that it was one of the best wedding ceremonies they had ever attended!

Our friends and family members were beyond impressed with his commanding and authoritative voice. As a raconteur, Han delivered insightful dialogue throughout the weekend and guided us with esteem and affection. With Han overseeing our wedding, we were in the best of hands. He ensured that the bride and groom, the wedding party and all guests had a more than memorable and worthwhile experience!

Han was great! It can be difficult to find non-religious officiants in North Carolina. Han helped us so much in planning the ceremony and personalizing it. He helped us consider the processional order, the style of the ceremony, what types of things make good vows, and helped us with any questions we had, including about the marriage certificate. This was so helpful, and we live in Chicago, so we had to do everything long-distance. Also, we had friends tell us that Han's accent made everything sound even better - and we agree! Han really was a great choice for us.

Han did a great job with a custom ceremony script. We wanted something nonreligious and he fit the bill quite well. He was very professional and courteous. His accent and diction are also great for something as momentous as a wedding ceremony. He sent us the script a few days before the event, after he interviewed a few of our friends. He's willing to dress how you like.
