No Ordinary Ordained non-denominational wedding officiant is a wedding service provider who truly believes it's your ceremony, your day, your words, your way. From traditional and romantic to personal and humorous, have your wedding where you want with the words you want. It's your day, don't let finding someone to preside over it dictate your dream ceremony coming true. I work with you to create your ceremony and make it as easy, stress-free, and fun as possible.

Inter-faith ceremonies; vow renewals; wedding renewals; commitment ceremonies; goth and most other themes; actual holiday weddings; last-minute civil and quick "courthouse" ceremonies; I am up for most all of it. I've officiated weddings at private residences, museums, Bed & Breakfasts, cemeteries, parking lots, prisons, parks, wineries, historical venues, and just about everywhere else. Please visit my website for photos and more information.

I live in Bowling Green, VA, but travel anywhere your wedding takes me. I am fully authorized to officiate ceremonies in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. (my main areas), but am also authorized in Pennsylvania, North & South Carolina, Florida, the Virgin Islands and most everywhere else too. E-mail, text, Skype and phone meetings are included with my services -- I do not place a limit on our communication as it is vital to get the vows and ceremony wording perfect for your day. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your wedding, please feel free to call, text, or email.

I'm a proud supporter of marriage equality and am LGBTQ wedding friendly, but I prefer to say I'm "love" friendly. Love is love - if you're happy, in love, and want to be married that's what is important to me. Read less

My husband and I used Tamara this past September and she was wonderful! She was responsive and easy to work with leading up to the wedding, and during the wedding she was great as well. I talked to her shortly before the ceremony and she explained everything to me and put me at ease. She made me feel relaxed during the ceremony; she was a calming presence and we are so happy to have had her. Great value, but above all great person. So happy my husband found her!

We were married at a winery on August 6, 2016. I went into the ceremony planning process without a clue, but Tamara sent us so many samples and ideas that everything came together easily. As a non-religious couple, we wanted a ceremony that was simple, but still meaningful and romantic; Tamara crafted a perfect ceremony that we and our religious and non-religious guests all loved! I am so glad we chose Tamara to be our officiant!

Tamara Riley is absolutely, hands down the best officiant! I have been apart of many weddings and when it was time to pick a wedding officiant, I knew just who I wanted. She personalizes the ceremony to what you want, has alot of experience, great ideas and she has a fabulous personality. You can tell that she truly loves what she does and she is there for YOU! and to make sure that YOUR event is special for YOU! She made our event truly magical!

Tamara was our elopement officiant... she was fantastic and we were so very comfortable with her. She was very responsive to our ideas and we emailed vows back and forth as we crafted our ceremony together. We didn't get to meet her until right before the ceremony, but we immediately felt at ease with her. The ceremony was great, there was laughter and happy tears, what more could you ask for? Very recommended. It's so important to have the right officiant, and Tamara fit the bill!

Loved Tamara! We contacted her since we didn't live in the area and not involved with a church. Her reviews were great and sounded like everything we wanted so we reached out. We had some phone calls and back and forth to get to know each other a little bit, but we never actually met her until the day of our wedding! She worked with us over email to craft our ceremony (we literally knew NOTHING of where to start) and after filling out some questions she sent us samples that she thought we would like. We cut and paste from a few of them from what we liked and she put it all together to make it flow. Day of the wedding we were so nervous/excited and she walked us through the whole thing while we were up there and kept us calm! Super professional and knowledgeable about all things wedding ceremonies! So many comments from friends and family that the ceremony was so beautiful and memorable, and it wouldn't have happened with out Tamara's help and guidance! She also was super flexible when we added a last minute bird release to our ceremony, she knew what to say and when and make it all flow!

Tamara was great!!! She was not only knowledgeable, flexible and personable; she was one of the most prompt people in business I have dealt with-ever! Always answered emails and made great suggestions. We were new to the area and she helped us with the location as well. Her words during the ceremony were beautiful! Super duper!

Tamara is fantastic! We contact her on very short notice and she was the first vendor to respond. She gave us information about the area and even suggested different locations to meet our needs. She definitely went above and beyond! Even after only a few conversations and talking for a short time with us, she was able to add some personal touches to our ceremony. I would definitely recommend Tamara and No Ordinary Ordained!
