Agnostic, Baha'i Faith, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Shinto, Sikhism
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Most of my ceremonies are held at wineries, resorts, hotels and other non-religious sites.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Generally I wear a long black skirt and jacket. Clergy robes are available if requested.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Each ceremony is a unique creation... specifically for the couple.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Many of my couples like to write their own vows, but in the alternative I provide dozens of choices for not only their vow, but all of the other elements of their ceremony as well.

I can provide lots of resources for finding beautiful readings but the couple is welcome to draw on any resources they may come across.

No, but I am always happy to make a referral to a good couples counselor.

Absolutely! I conduct rehearsals for about 75% of my couples.

No.

Rev. Claire is wonderful! We were so thrilled to have her plan and officiate our wedding ceremony. She was thoughtful, reassuring, and flexible throughout the planning process, and she personalized our ceremony to match our vision perfectly. Ultimately, she designed a warm, upbeat, slightly spiritual ceremony, just as we’d hoped for.

Rev. Claire was great to work with; she even helped us very early on by making great recommendations for other vendors (DJ: T.D. Layman; Harpist: Eve Watters; Photographer: Rob Garland). She’s done many, many Charlottesville area weddings, and she’s very happy to bring her experience to bear to help her brides and grooms. She gave us great advice specific to our venue (King Family Vineyard), which allowed us to avoid mishaps such as poor amplification, lost wedding bands, etc.

Overall, Rev. Claire has a warm, calming presence, and without ever needing to yell or strain her voice, she immediately captures the attention of wedding attendees in a wonderful way. She’s a great person to work with, and she’s incredibly talented at making the ceremony feel special on the actual day. Our wedding would not have been the same without her!

we feel so blessed to have found rev claire goodman of sacred ground ceremonies to be our wedding officiant. both my husband and i are very spiritual but not particularly religious, and both come from religious families who observe different faiths. we met with claire to talk about beliefs about spirituality, love, marriage, our families and our roles within them, what we wanted out of ceremony, what moved us, etc. she really took time to get to know what mattered to us and what would make our ceremony meaningful. claire has a very gentle, kind spriit that makes it easy to talk with her and feel like you have known her for years when you've only actually met twice!
claire ran our rehearsal with professionalism and was very efficient in making sure everyone knew where they were supposed to be, when, how to cue transitions, etc. we felt very comfortable going into our wedding.
the ceremony itself was pure loveliness. claire incorporated everything we asked for and the address and blessings she provided were moving and inclusive of all in attendance. i regret not getting a videographer just so i could watch this ceremony again.
wonderful. highly recommend.

Claire was amazing! She worked with my (now) husband and I to tailor-make the wedding ceremony of our dreams! It was beautiful and so special because we had been such an integral part in creating it. She helped us create a ceremony that truly represented what we believe and who we are as a couple. When I first started thinking about what the ceremony should include, it quickly became overwhelming. But Claire offers her couples a wedding ceremony "menu" with many examples and choices to consider. It helped tremendously! She also gave us advice and guidance regarding how to write our own vows (which turned our beautifully, by the way). In addition, Claire was essential in making sure that our ceremony went off without a hitch! She's very experienced and ran our rehearsal like a true professional. She gave us and our wedding party lots of useful information to use on the day of. She's just a wonderful person who is instantly easy to like and get along with. I highly recommend her!

Rev. Claire Goodman is the first name you will hear when you ask other vendors and brides for recommendations regarding an officiant. We are so happy that Claire was part of our day, we cannot say enough kind words about her. She created a memorable, personal wedding ceremony. Claire is full of great ideas and advice. She even suggested a vendor for ceremony music, who we were also more than pleased with. We received so many compliments from our guests on Claire and the ceremony that she created. Claire will help you create a beautiful and personalized ceremony. We could not have done it without her!

The ceremony was lovely and we really enjoyed getting to know Claire through the process. She is a wonderful person and was the perfect officiant for our special day! We both highly recommend Claire to be your officiant.

Claire was amazing. She was able to pull together a ceremony filled with EXACTLY the right words and feelings for my new husband and I. I will never forget some of the things she said, and couldn't have found a better person to help us express how we felt about each other and our joining families. She is soft spoken and sweet, and was wonderful with helping to calm my nerves before walking down the aisle as well--that was an added bonus. :) We really appreciated everything she did and couldn't have chosen a better, more genuine person to officiate at our wedding. We felt almost as though she were a member of our family!

I cannot recommend Rev. Claire enough. A beautiful person, Claire is eminently accessible, responsive, flexible, accommodating, personable, caring, reliable, supportive, and lovely. She was patient and accepting of me and my family, and she helped calm me in stressful moments. Her willingness and ability to personalize the service, regardless of religious preferences, was incredible. I am an agnostic with a Jewish parent and a non-denominational parent; my husband's family is deeply Catholic, and yet we were able to craft a ceremony that made everyone happy. Claire sent us MANY options for the ceremony, including vows, readings, declarations of intent, blessings, etc. She also helped by bringing supplies with her, including nice cards printed with our vows, so we didn't have to worry about remembering them. She also made suggestions when we were feeling equivocal--and she gave us some interesting ideas for photographs, including a shot of everyone who attended the wedding, a picture we are grateful to have but would never have thought of taking. Simply put, Claire is the best. No matter what your religion, your style of wedding, or your venue, Claire is the most wonderful officiant a couple could have to minister (!) to such an important day. You'll want to look back at wedding pictures, find one of Claire, and smile. That's what I do.

My husband and I wanted an outdoor wedding and someone who would appreciate my Catholic background. We found Claire through a referral and she was ideal. She understood the aspects we wanted to highlight and what we wanted out of our ceremony. She was easy to work with and she was incredibly helpful with quick answers, references for readings or suggestions of different things to add to our ceremony.

The day of, we had a large raincloud that came and covered the sun, taking the heat away for a while. Claire asked my husband and I too take a look out at the audience and look to see all the love that was out there for us. It's one of my favorite moments in our ceremony because up until that point, and for the rest of the evening, we never really got the chance to look and see all of our loved ones who came together from all over the country and world for us. As the thunder started booming, big fat raindrops began to fall. Claire was very flexible and skipped over part of her address so that we could continue to get married outside, as we had wanted. The ceremony continued flawlessly, and I'm so glad that Claire was the one who married us. She's so approachable, understanding and easy to talk to.

We researched every officiant in the DC metro area and came up empty handed before expanding our search to other parts of virginia. My parents are of different religions and my husband was raised roman-catholic, although he isn't anywhere near as devout as his parents are. We knew that we needed to have a non-religious ceremony, though spiritual references were okay. When I came across Rev. Claire's website, I forwarded it on to my husband for his thoughts. We both got a very good vibe from her website, and contacted her to set up a meeting. We drove down to Charlottesville to meet with her and were very happy with her attention to detail and overall presence. As we drove back up to NoVa, we decided that although it would cost more to hire her because she would be coming from out of town, the comfort we felt after meeting with her was enough to win us over and that we wanted to work with her. Rev. Claire was always very accessible by email for any questions or concerns that we had, and her positive, calming spirit helped keep us cool and collected in the days leading up to our wedding. The ceremony was just right, not too long, not too short. It felt perfectly suited to our non-religious backgrounds, without swinging too far into religious contexts, which also kept our families happy. We were able to select the different components for our entire ceremony, which she then tailored into a beautiful experience that we (and all of our guests!) were all impressed by. We are so happy that we found her and can't imagine anyone else uniting us on our special day!!

I absolutely loved the ceremony that Claire presented. She was very easy to talk to, and her ceremony wording suggestions based on our chats were perfect. The only problem we had was with regard to volume. It was extremely hard to hear her past the third row. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Claire, but make sure you work out in advance (and test the system!) with her how she will be amplified- we waited till the last minute and our solution (a little amp with a lapel mic that attached around the waist) was not sufficient.

The planning was a little chaotic, but when the day came, the ceremony was absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Rev. Claire had a calming, beautiful way of bringing myself (bride), the wedding party, and all of the guests into the very sacred moment of promising our lives to each other. The rest of day had been crazy, not to mention 100+ degree weather, but all of that faded away duing the ceremony because of her choice of words and how she spoke them.
