Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

I am an ordained, non-denominational Wedding Officiant who serves the Greater Seattle/Tacoma/Eastside area. I provide both religious and non-religious ceremonies at the location of your choice. I am honored and delighted to officiate at weddings for heterosexual and same-sex couples, elopements, and renewal of vows.

What type of ceremony have you always dreamed about? I delight in meeting and getting to know the couples I work with. Together, we will create the ceremony of your dreams - one that reflects your values, love, and commitment as a couple.

I approach my work with professionalism, passion, and creativity. My goal is to create a beautiful, personalized, and heartfelt ceremony that is uniquely yours and that you will cherish as much on your 25th wedding anniversary as you do on the day of your wedding. It is my joy to work with people in love and to help make their wedding day the day of their dreams! I am also passionate about my family. I am blessed with two grown children and three grandchildren.

I am available seven days a week to officiate at ceremonies arranged either well in advance or for spontaneous, short-notice weddings.

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)
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes, that is my specialty! The bride and groom select the location of their choice. I have performed ceremonies inside and outside, at museums, parks, restaurants, wineries, farms, clubs, homes, etc..
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I usually wear a black dress with either a white shawl or black jacket, but have other outfits, per request of the couple.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes, each ceremony is custom written for the couple. We work together to choose the vows, readings, ceremonies, songs, etc. that make up the ceremony.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes, it is beautiful when they write their own vows. I also have several vows they can choose from or modify or to use to give them ideas for writing their own vows.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have a list of readings the couple can choose from, but they can also select readings I do not have. This makes the ceremony more personalized and more meaningful for them. I encourage couples to bring things to the ceremony that reflect their personalities, interests, and relationship.
How long are your ceremonies?
The ceremonies typically run from 10 minutes to 30 minutes, with 15 minutes being the length chosen most often. The length of the ceremony will depend on what type of ceremony the wedding couple desires.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I do not require premarital counseling, but I highly recommend it. I offer a premarital discussion course to help the engaged couple explore and discuss the important topics in marriage. All the couples who have gone through this course have found it to be worthwhile and helpful.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes! That is the time to iron out all the details and have the bridal party rehearse what they are doing and when. It makes the wedding day run much smoother, plus it gives me the chance to get to know the wedding couple, their wedding party, and families before the wedding. It makes the wedding day more intimate since we have all met each other beforehand.
Do you supply a sound system?
No, the DJ supplies the sound system.

Jan was absolutely wonderful. After our ceremony several people mentioned to us that they were very impressed with Jan. We would certainly recommend Jan to others who are looking for an officiant. She made our ceremony very caring, loving and personal. We loved every minute of the time she gave us. I wish we could rate all of the above a 10!

We had the pleasure of having Rev. Jan Carter as the officiant of our wedding this summer, and she was simply tremendous. She wrote an absolutely beautiful ceremony, and customized it to fit my wife and I. She made herself constantly available to us and was constantly updating us with recommendations and additions or edits to our pieced together ceremony. She delivered a wonderful ceremony, and we were thrilled with the end result. I highly recommend the services of reverend Jan Carter, and will always be grateful to her for making our day so special. THANK YOU REVEREND JAN!

I had the privilege of attending a wedding officiated by Rev. Jan last year prior to retaining her for my son"s wedding this past weekend. So for me, it was an easy choice to have Rev. Jan join them in marriage. Both the Bride & Groom really appreciated her willingness to make their ceremony special to them. I appreciated her accessibility and patience dealing with a nervous Bride & Groom and a hysterical (at times) Mother of the Groom! Could go on and on about how special this lady is! Know that Rev. Jan is an awesome choice for a wedding officiant.

I had the privilege of attending a wedding officiated by Rev. Jan last year prior to retaining her for my son"s wedding this past weekend. So for me, it was an easy choice to have Rev. Jan join them in marriage. Both the Bride & Groom really appreciated her willingness to make their ceremony special to them. I appreciated her accessibility and patience dealing with a nervous Bride & Groom and a hysterical (at times) Mother of the Groom! Could go on and on about how special this lady is! Know that Rev.

Jan served as the officiant for our wedding in August. We met with her a few months before and from that first meeting we knew she was the person we were looking for. She was very kind and accommodating and helped guide us through the process of planning a ceremony that really fit our style and vision. The ceremony was perfect for us and we're so happy we found her.

My husband and I can't thank Jan enough for the ceremony she put together for us. She made sure it was personalized and had all the elements that we were looking for. Since the first time we met with her she was responsive and willing to answer any questions we had. The ceremony went perfectly and many people told us afterward how much they loved it and how beautiful it was. Jan is very personable and does everything she can to make sure you're happy with the end result. We can't recommend her enough!

Reverend Jan is amazing at what she does! Each time we met with her she was extremely flexible and responsive. She really knows her stuff and was able to answer all of our questions, making us feel so confident in the process and in having her there on our wedding day. She coordinated our rehearsal and helped us identify some issues that could come up and resolve them before the day arrived. Her ceremony was BEAUTIFUL in every way and we continue to get compliments on it! Best of all, Jan is kind and sweet and lovely to be around. I am so grateful that she was part of our wedding!

Reverend Jan was one of our favorite parts of our day! We found her through word of mouth, and are so thankful that we did! She was so kind, willing to listen to all of our ideas, spent plenty of time helping us decide what type of ceremony we were looking for, and did an amazing job on the day of the wedding! She was so sweet to my husband and I, and our families both absolutely adored her! She fit right in, and everyone that met her thought the world of her. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone!
