Congratulations! When the ordinary just won't do, call me to create a ceremony that expresses your unique love and your personal style. Together we'll create an event that will make your heart sing and your spirit soar. (...and if you giggle during the ceremony, that's wonderful!)

Whether your ceremony is traditional, religious, spiritual, or civil, it will be delivered with a light heart, a deep presence, and profound sincerity.


I also offer optional couples coaching, an on-line premarital assessment, and a workshop for engaged and recently married couples. I do this because I truly wish to help you experience the incredible and rich rewards of a beautiful marriage.


I'm honored to serve you at this point in your life and I’m committed to helping you get through your day with grace and ease.

Love,

Diana

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Christian (no denomination), Hindu, Jewish, Muslim
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes, I officiated a wonderful wedding at "The Dog Bar" in Charlotte. There were no dogs that day but lots of happy people.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Usually a black dress. A robe or white stole is optional. Sometimes I wear a champaign colored dress if appropriate. I don't wear white because that's for the bride.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Absolutely, the ceremony is custom written for the couple
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes, I encourage it!
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
No, how dreadful. I give couples LOTS choices.
How long are your ceremonies?
20-25 minutes
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No, but I invite you to consider it, because a little counseling goes a long way toward building your long-term happiness. I offer the Prepare-Enrich online assessment followed by a one hour consultation in my home. 
 
 While you're planning the wedding, take some time to plan the marriage as well.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
I prefer to attend the rehearsal, but location, schedule and traffic sometime prohibit me from making it. I offer two fee structures to accommodate a rehearsal or not.
Do you supply a sound system?
No

I emailed Diana two months before my wedding day and even though she was going to be on vacation the days before my wedding she agreed to be my officiant. We had a quick meeting early on and received some information about the basic outline of a ceremony.

We chose to participate in her "prepare enrich" program, a kind of couples counseling before marriage. It was a great value! I would completely recommend others to take part in it too. It was a short online test and a one hour meeting at Diana's house. She had great leading questions and really helped us analyze our relationship, but she never made us doubt anything close to the wedding date; instead, simply made us aware of some realities that we may not have noticed in our pre-marriage bliss.

Our ceremony was beautiful, and although I dont think there is a bride on the planet who dislikes what is said at her ceremony I believe it was because of Diana. It was completely personalized and was long enough for our family and us to enjoy but short enough not to bore anyone. She was extremely flexible with some last minute requests and was very helpful when my husband and I got lost during the ceremony haha.

Anyway... she was amazing and if I had to do it all over I would never choose anyone else.

Reverend Diana Collins was a blessing for my husband and I for the officiant on our wedding day. Her smiles and genuine positive attitude helped make our day so unique and special. Diana allowed us to write every word of our ceremony in order to make it unique for my husband and I and never once put down any idea that we had. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a special soul to officiate your wedding ceremony.

I would highly recommend using Diana as your wedding officicant for several reasons. First off, she has a very calming zen-like personality that just keeps you relaxed being around her. She has great ideas on different ways to do you ceremony if you are lost on what to do. I wanted a more spiritual wedding ceremony- not too religious, and focus on our love for one another and Diana came through beautifully in helping convey our love to our audience. We had a consultation with Diana months before the wedding and really got a feel for what to expect. She is easy to get a hold of- I was making constant changes on the ceremony readings and she just kept on editing until we had it just right. Diana read our vows and we repeated them- let me just say that my husband gets very nervous with this sort of thing but Diana went slowly, one phrase at a time and he was able to repeat it perfectly with confidence. Not as easy undertaking! She certainly exceeded way beyond my expectations and made my wedding ceremony so unforgettable that guests are still talking about how amazing she was and the whole ceremony just felt awesome. You will be making the right decision with Diana especially for a not in the church wedding ceremony. One other thing I almost forgot, she came out to our rehearsal and my large unruly wedding party was not cooperating and Diana took charge and got them to pay attention and we got through it fast and easy. You definitely need a strong leader to take the reigns and guide you through this most important occasion.

We can sum Diana up in one word.....AMAZING! Being an interfaith couple, she brought a lot to the table to help us create a personal ceremony that incorporated both of our religions. She has a very calming and peaceful way about her which helps during such an emotional moment. All of our guests commented on how well she did and her kind words were inspiring. She did a great job!

The ceremony is by far one of the most important elements on the wedding day and we are SO happy we found Rev. Diana Collins. She took the time to meet with us, get to know us, and created a ceremony that really represented who we are. Guests raved about how beautiful the ceremony was from start to finish. It is also a little bit nerve-racking standing up there and she made me feel very at ease. I would highly recommend Rev. Diana Collins. Thank you!
