Have the wedding ceremony you've dreamed of, a ceremony that will be memorable, personal, unique, romantic and will honor your beliefs and your emotion in your language of love and tradition.

She works with you to create a ceremony just for you, to ensure that there isn't even one false note in your ceremony.

She provides:

- guidance for all aspects of the ceremony, and

Rev. Robin Renteria's Wedding Resource Book:

Rev. Robin Renteria has created and compiled wonderful ideas for all aspects of the wedding ceremony for religious, spiritual, and non-religious ceremonies from her 18 years of providing unique ceremonies into her book 'The Ultimate Wedding Ceremony Workbook'. In addition to all the traditional aspects of the ceremony it includes honoring those who have passed, blending families, new babies, thanking parents, symbolic rituals like sharing wine, the Sand Ceremony, the Box Love Letter and Wine Ceremony, The Unity Candle, Ring Warming, the Salt Covenant, Celtic Handfasting and much much more. In an easy to read and skim format it is over 200 pages long and includes over 100 poems and writings about love and marriage. It has a guide to every question that must be considered for all the non-content elements of your ceremony, too. And also includes 14 sample ceremonies. With the purchase of her book for $12.95, she includes her 'Guide to Writing Your Own Wedding Vows' which has examples of all types of vows from traditional to contemporary, and well as an insightful guide for what to consider to make writing your vows a wonderful shared process with your beloved. Her books are in the form of downloadable PDF files that are instantly available.

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?
Buddhist, Christian (no denomination)
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Absolutely! In whatever setting the couple chooses. In homes, churches, gardens, museums (the butterfly room), gazebos, estates, lakes, the Old Well at UNC, on a mountain top, or in snowy woods. They are all lovely.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I have both secular and religious attire. I want to match the vision and tone the couple wants.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Totally. The couple chooses and approves every word I say.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes! I offer them my Guide to Writing Your Own Marriage vows. The moment will go quickly. I encourage them to make it their own.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have over 150 religious and secular readings from all over the world. And I welcome other ideas. I keep adding to my collection of romantic, thoughtful, loving and light spirited ways that honor the paths of love and marriage.
How long are your ceremonies?
The typical ceremony is 20 - 30 minutes long. I create a script with a couple and we can tailor the timing and content to fit their vision.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I offer it and recommend it but don't require it. I offer the Prepare-Enrich curriculum which helps couples assess their areas of strength and build upon areas where growth is needed. I also draw from several other different programs. I want couples to have resources that will continue to support them after they have finished our work together.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Absolutely. We plan for the non-text elements of the ceremony and make sure that every detail is covered.
Do you supply a sound system?
Yes - I can also provide amplification for the couple and their readers. I also had an IPOD connection so that my system can be used for the ceremony music. My system is battery operated so no other power source is needed.

We had a non-denominational/secular wedding with Robin as our officiant and she was nothing short of phenomenal. Robin made script-planning easy and hassle-free as she was more than willing to provide us samples and ideas. Overall, we found her service highly personal, but also extremely organized and professional, and we would definitely recommend her to others.

Robin officiated our wedding on Sunday, Sept 14th at Shady Wagon Farms outside of Raleigh, NC. It has been almost a month since our wedding and our guests are still raving about the positive and joyful tone of our ceremony. We had a very diverse group of guests at our wedding and she made all of them feel comfortable and welcome. Robin went above and beyond to help us in premarital counseling, preparing our vows and creating a ceremony that fit our personalities that we could truly call our own. She was extremely responsive and gave us tidbits of advice when we asked through out the whole process. Robin was such a joy to work with. We couldn't imagine our wedding day without her guidance and love.

From the moment we first met with Rev. Robin we knew she would help us with our ceremony to give it an intimate, personal and spiritual feel. We used her downloadable ceremony planner to find bits and pieces to create a personal ceremony. It was great to have one place to look at so many options! Rev. Robin was always available, offering suggestions, openly accepting just what we wanted and she officiated our ceremony with love, perfection and her gorgeous smile which is so warm. Thank you Robin for giving us a ceremony that we will forever remember. You calmed us and helped us perfect our vows. You are wonderful!

I love the process that Robin used to create our wedding ceremony. Jeff and I took the time to answer Robin's questions about the story of our love, and Robin then crafted an extremely personal and beautiful ceremony that really took our values, personalities and styles into account. She delivered it with such warmth and genuine caring that many of our guests thanked her after our ceremony. Robin responded to every email I sent within the same day. She was great to work with and we couldn't be happier with our decision to hire her!

My husband and I were referred to Robin through coworkers of his that she married a few years ago. Let me just say... Robin is amazing!

She allowed us to create a personalized ceremony that was just right for us. (Just right for us included a Princess Bride quote so we could start off the ceremony laughing) She was very responsive and attentive to our emails during the planning phase. (And I feel like I sent a lot)

On the day of the wedding she made a point to remind us to saver the moment and not to rush through. It was a great piece of advise that helped me to remember to take a deep breath when I got choked up during my vows.

Family and friends have continued to comment on Robin's professional and warm ceremony for weeks after the wedding. If you are looking for a warm and professional person to personalize and lead your ceremony, Robin is it!

Robin performed our wedding ceremony last month, and she was absolutely fantastic. My now-husband and I were raised in very different faiths (I was Catholic and he was Baptist), and although we're both spiritually-oriented people, neither of us is formally religious now. We worried a bit about finding an officiant who could accommodate our families' different faiths, as well as our own approach to spirituality, but we found the perfect person in Robin. Our ceremony was wonderful - very poignant and meaningful to all concerned, poetic and spiritual and totally beautiful. I recommend Robin highly - she is sensitive and thoughtful and altogether wonderful!

My wedding ceremony couldn't be as beautiful and wonderful as it is without Robin. From writing our own vowel to crafting ceremony script, she is so compassionate, supportive and professional. She provided great suggestions and guidance to make our ceremony perfect and made us feel so comfortable on our special day. I really love her gentle personality and warm smile. We would highly recommend her to anyone who needs an officiant. We couldn't be happier with the service and I am sure you will too.

We could not have asked for more from Robin as our officiant. She was wonderful throughout, from the initial planning until the day itself. She put us at ease, was helpful with advice and extremely quick to respond to questions. In particular, she went out of her way to accommodate the challenges we faced with our immigration situation - we had international skype calls to discuss our requirements and Robin kindly performed an additional small legal ceremony for us in advance of our main celebration. We received glowing feedback from family and friends on the big day, who all thought she was great at helping everyone relax and focus on enjoying the moment! We would be delighted to recommend her. By far the best of all the vendors we worked with.

Ours was a second marriage for both of us. We decided upon an exclusively family gathering at the beautiful Arrowhead Inn in Durham, NC, making the wedding the centerpiece of a casual time for meeting and blending our families of adult children and grandchilren. Robin was recommended to us, and after exchanging introductory emails we determined she was perfect from similarities of personal histories and spiritual believes. Her interview process guided us through the planning of our ceremony and facilitated a personal, meaningful and family centered beginning to our lives together. We would recommend her without reservation to anyone seeking a personable, sensitive and flexible officiant. She was pitch perfect!

Robin was a great officiant! She was easy to talk to, bounce ideas off of, and was easily accessible through phone and email. We loved the book she provides with her services, so that we could make a personalized ceremony. Everyone commented on how wonderful the ceremony was and I have to attribute this to building a unique script from Robin’s book. Robin also offered her years of expertise to help calm us and create a romantic, intimate moment for my (now) husband and myself. I appreciated her positive energy and how she made the wedding ceremony a true representation of our love. She was a wonderful addition to our day and made one of the most important moments of our life a truly memorable and special one! I would highly recommend Robin to others!

Words cannot express how wonderful our ceremony turned out thanks to Robin. She worked with us from day one to craft a ceremony that fit us perfectly. And when things got a little too hectic and down-to-the-wire before the wedding for us to write/find the perfect words for certain parts of the ceremony, Robin supplied GREAT suggestions and samples that fit seamlessly into our script. It is obvious that she truly loves her job, and she is 100% concerned with making sure your ceremony is perfect for YOU.

We really couldn't have had a better officiant than Rev. Robin. From the initial meeting to the actual wedding date, it was such a pleasure and joy to work with her to plan our wedding ceremony. She is so experienced and wise. Her presence really brightened our beautiful wedding.

I am so grateful that we found her, and I would recommend her to any couple without any hesitation.

Robin married us 2 weekends ago. She was SO easy to work with. We met with her and discussed options. Then we worked back and forth with her on the ceremony via email. She was more than willing to edit and re-edit as many times as we wished until we were 100% happy with it. Our ceremony site was not reserved so it was touch and go a few times within the hour before. She was calm and reassuring and ready to jump in whenever we were set to go. She was a pleasure! Many of our guests had great things to say and asked where we found her. We highly recommend her!

Dear Robin,

Thank you ever so much for being our wedding Minister and providing us with a very personal and intimate wedding ceremony. From our initial meeting at your home you made us feel comfortable and it was very evident how you treat each couple with kindness, thought and care. We loved how you helped guide us in ways to make our ceremony truly our own, how to add special meaning as well as including our family. The setting was intimate at our home with only our immediate family and you made everyone feel like they were part of the celebration. We had many compliments about you and I have already passed along your name to a number of friends because I cannot think of a more perfect officiant. Thank you again - Sarah and Brian

My husband and I could not be more thrilled with our choice of Robin as our officiant! She was helpful, friendly, kind, and endlessly thoughtful. She helped us craft a ceremony that was uniquely our own. She walked us through selecting appropriate readings, and asked just the right questions to add stories and touches that made the ceremony incredibly personal. Robin was simply the best!

We can't say enough wonderful things about Robin. She helped us create a beautiful, personal ceremony and we are so thankful that she could be part of our special day. Robin has a very calming presence, yet she is so engaged and magical. Her smile, words and demeanor are friendly, warm and welcoming. Friends and family members commented on how beautiful our ceremony was, and how amazing Robin was. We couldn't agree more! We are so appreciative to have had her officiate our ceremony. She also led our rehearsal which was nice to have an opportunity to go through everything before the big day! Robin was so helpful and patient through the whole process. We couldn't have wished for a more perfect ceremony. There is a reason why Robin has so many positive reviews, she really is that amazing! It is evident that she has a true gift and we are blessed she shared it with us!

Robin made us feel so comfortable - in the planning before the wedding and during the ceremony. Her wedding ceremony workbook was very helpful for us, as we were planning a non-traditional ceremony and didn't know where to begin. But she helped us put together a ceremony where we, as Robin likes to say, truly believed in every word, and it felt incredibly special on the day of. She has a very warm and genuine way of speaking and slow, deliberate pacing, that really highlights the meaning behind the words and ceremony. We were both surprised - as we've been together for over 10 years and thought the reception would be the highlight of the night - that the ceremony was the part we probably enjoyed and think back on the most. We can't thank Robin enough!

Reverend Renteria was the absolute BEST! There are just not enough words to express how wonderful she truly is! We could not have asked for a better wedding experience! She did such an amazing job with making our ceremony so special, personal, loving and unique! We still receive compliments about how special, intimate and charming our ceremony was! Everyone just loved Reverend Renteria!

Reverend Renteria is just wonderful at making the whole experience enjoyable. She makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed and she helps guide you throughout the whole process. She has everything completely under control so that you don't have to worry about a thing! You can then focus on all of the other 100 things you have to get coordinated!

We truly could not have had a better experience or asked for a more perfect wedding day!

She really took the time before our big day to get to know us and our story to add a personal touch. She had so many great outlines for the ceremony for us to choose from and we were able to customize our vows. She even read a poem of our choice and did it beautiful. We appreciated her flexibility and she was a real professional. We would recommend her to anyone and we think she's great!!!! So glad we chose her.

She was very caring, professional and honored our requests. I highly recommend Robin!

Robin did a great job with our ceremony. I actually picked her because she had done a coworker's wedding a few years before ours. It was unconventional, but very good, and I remembered her. She has a big list of choices you can pick from for each section of the ceremony, or you can choose your own words. It's great because you can have your ceremony be anything you want, but having so many choices can also be hard, especially with so many other decisions to make. We wanted it special and customized (and it was), but there were a few things we couldn't decide between, and she helped us choose, so it was the best of both worlds. She also has a few example ceremonies completely done, so you can just do one of those if you want. She was very calm and organized and it rubbed off on everyone at the rehearsal and during the ceremony. Several people told me after the wedding that they liked the ceremony.

Robin was absolutely fantastic to work with for our ceremony services. When it came to selecting an officiant, my husband and I were really nervous and apprehensive because we wanted an officiant that made our wedding ceremony special and personal to our relationship and the love that we shared for each other. Well, Robin certainly was able to offer that. Not only is she such a well-spoken person but my husband and I got to completely customize our ceremony and make it truly about us. It was such a FUN experience getting to plan our wedding ceremony. My husband and I had such a great time picking out different selections and finding the selections that spoke to us and really spoke to the type of love that we share for each other. Robin was such a pleasure to work with through the entire planning of the wedding ceremony. After the ceremony, everyone was raving about her. All of the guests loved her and said it was one of the best ceremonies they have witnessed because of Robin and how well she spoke and how natural and beautiful the ceremony was. They said she just had this beautiful way about her. It was so wonderful to hear so many guests give such wonderful compliments. We wanted the guests to have an enjoyable experience too and they surely did. It was such a beautiful ceremony - something my husband and I cherish and will cherish for the rest of our lives. Whenever I hear something looking for an officiant, I will highly recommend Robin. She will give you a ceremony that you will cherish and love forever. So very special. Thank you, Robin. We look forward to sharing pictures with you!

My husband and I are not North Carolina natives so when it came time to find an officiant for our October 2013 wedding we turned to the internet. After spending hours pouring over reviews we set up a meeting with Robin at her home. Immediately we felt at ease with her and settled in to learn more about her and her process. During that first meeting I teared up as she explained the flow of the service and described all the different options of how we could make the service our own. As soon as we got in the car to drive home, we turned to each other and said, "She's the one!". After we solidified the details Robin sent us an amazing ebook full of different wording, ideas, and sayings. This resource was invaluable to us as we created the framework for our ceremony and vows. Robin was always available to answer questions and was so patient and kind as we worked right up to the last minute to get everything set in stone. I was impressed with how prepared and prompt Robin was both at the rehearsal and the day of. Because she has been doing this for so long she thinks of every little detail and comes prepared for anything! But what we both loved the most about Robin was how she just seemed to know what kind of "feel" we were hoping for during our ceremony and how she effortlessly pulled it off. I even heard some of our guests go up to Robin afterwards and thank her for creating such a beautiful ceremony. Thank you Robin for putting your beautiful touch on our wedding day.

We had an excellent officiant, Robin, in our wedding on Oct 6 this year. She made sure we understood everything during the pre-wedding conversations with a warm and nice manner. My husband and I were very tied up at work during the wedding preparation. We were late for half an hour in one of the scheduled Skype video meeting, but she was so patient and nice. We are not familiar with American wedding or convention since we are from China and lived in North Carolina just 4 years. She is very knowledgeable and considerate for the culture and custom. After speaking with her, we are very delighted and released from stress. She understood and respected our questions and concerns so well, and accommodate very well. On the big day, she was so professional and passing her love to us and everyone. Our Ceremony was incredibly heartfelt and moving. I was in tears, and my husband was glassy eyed, as were the entire bridal party. She handed us paper handkerchief to blot my tears. Everything is so perfect!

Her big book of ceremony ideas/info was a huge help because neither of us had been to many weddings and did not have family traditions of our own. She was a very calming and comforting presence throughout our planning.

The task of looking for an officiant was pretty daunting at first. We were having a small wedding with close family and friends so we wanted everyone to not only enjoy but to feel as though they were a part of the ceremony. We didn't think that it would be difficult to find someone to accommodate this but it turned into a mission. Website after website offered pictures of people saying that they would make your event "magical" without providing any details of the ceremonies they could perform or much of their experience or even any helpful reviews. I was nervous we would end up with someone who didn't know us and didn't really care. I stumbled upon Robin Renteria's blog and enjoyed reading her sincere words about making a wedding special for each of her couples. I liked that she had a wealth of experience performing various types of ceremonies and that the couples she worked with readily gave her outstanding reviews. After contacting her through email, it was immediately reinforced that Robin's ultimate goal was to make us happy and to provide services that we could remember fondly. After we met with Robin in person, we both knew that she was exactly what we were looking for - someone genuine who wanted to get to know us as a couple and would take the time and effort to make our wedding intimate and personal.

Robin helped us every step of the way and made us feel completely taken care of. Her resources were amazing and it was exciting for us to go through sample ceremonies, picking and choosing what we liked and re-wording with her guidance what we wanted to change in order to create our custom ceremony. Robin kindly reminded us of steps to take before and after our wedding and had a wonderful way of making us and our wedding party feel great. My husband and I couldn't be happier with our choice as Robin is not only a great officiant but a fantastic person.

Reverend Robin Renteria was not only our officiant but also conducted our premarital counseling leading up to our wedding. Robin did an awesome job in communicating with us throughout the entire process. She gave us all the resources we needed to make the ceremony exactly what we had imagined. She was friendly, professional, and very prepared (she even had tissues for me during the ceremony when I got teary eyed). When it came to the premarital counseling (not required but we totally recommend) she gave us some really great advice when it came to communicating with each other and setting up expectations for our life together. She was very flexible in setting up meeting times and she was very fast in replying to any questions we had. We were very happy with how she conducted our wedding and would highly recommend her to any couple planning their wedding!

At the beginning of our planning I had strict things that I did not want said, she was so easy and bending. She really was a calming force for me and my husband. I was excited to choose her. We paid extra for the rehearsal, I suggest couples go for that. It helps a lot.

Robin did a wonderful job officiating our wedding at the Umstead Hotel in Cary, NC. She worked with us to create a unique, meaningful ceremony that was personal and tailored to our beliefs. We also highly recommend Robin for pre-marraige counseling. Overall, Robin was very professional and a pleasure to work with.

Robin performed both our ceremony and our premarital counseling. We loved that she was so warm and accepting, and really challanged my wife(now) and I to open up and have difficult conversations before the wedding. She provided a TON of resources for us to craft our ceremony, and was very respectful of our wishes to create our own draft before she put the finishing touches on it. She has been through many ceremonies, so she offers very helpful tips on timing and design of the ceremony. On the wedding day, she arrived and promptly took care of the license, and she offers to take care of filing everything with the register of deeds and get duplicate copies for you. The ceremony was great...Robin had a little technical issue with the sound system but she was calm and professional and worked through it. I can highly recommend her services as both officiant and counselor.

Simply put, if you want a perfect ceremony hire Reverend Robin Renteria. I can't say enough amazing things about her. She helped me write the most beautiful ceremony that was absolutely perfect and customized for my husband and I. You never really think about this, but she does...she took her time reading the ceremony to let us enjoy every last minute of it because it goes by faster than you'd ever think. The most friendly person you could ever imagine and you can tell she truly LOVES what she does. Anything you want in your ceremony she can make it happen. You'd regret going with anyone else but her!!

My, now, husband and I had an elopement ceremony. We contacted Rev Robin Renteria a few weeks before our wedding date in hopes she may be able to officiate our ceremony. Even though we had given her hardly any notice she provided advice, and helped us to make vows that were meaningful and spoke to us as a couple. Most of our communication was done via email, but she always responded promptly. There are no words to describe how much we appreciate how nice and accommodating Rev Robin was. Our ceremony was perfect! I would highly recommend Rev Robin for any type of wedding ceremony.

It was not just what she said, it's also how she delivered the words. Robin worked together with us and allowed us to create the content. Her flexibility in allowing couples to craft the perfect ceremony to fit their personalities and beliefs is amazing, and she provides a lot of suggested material as part of her services. I can not imagine a better officiant.

We chose Robin to be our officiant after seeing her marry some friends of ours. Robin had a lot of great suggestions for the ceremony but we were also completely free to make changes. We ended up pulling bits and pieces from several of the sample ceremonies she had sent us. She was really accommodating throughout this process and we were both very happy with how the ceremony turned out. She was easy to communicate with and really took the time to get a feel for what we wanted in our ceremony. We’ve received a lot of compliments from our guests on how great the ceremony was. We highly recommend her.

Robin is AMAZING! We met with another officiant before meeting her and the contrast was night and day. At the meeting, Robin described some of her work and it literally made me cry (and I'm not a person to cry often or in front of people I don't know!). She has an excellent voice and presence. I love how all of her pictures with couples have her smiling so sweetly at them! Her presence at our wedding was flawless - she was helpful, had everything ready and did such a wonderful, wonderful job. We highly recommend her!!

She was very responsive, open to all of our requests and incorporated some Jewish customs. We had final say on the ceremony script and she worked with us until it was just what we wanted. She was a calming presence the day of the wedding and many people commented on how lovely she was.

We would highly recommend Robin to anyone needing a wedding officiant!

She made me feel that she really cared about making our wedding special the entire time and continuously reminded us that we could and should make the ceremony exactly what we wanted--no strings attached!! Up until the last minute she really made an effort to make sure our wedding ceremony was exactly what we wanted (all the way down to what she wore). The day of the event she did such a fantastic job and didn't even miss a beat when one of the groomsmen fainted!! I cannot thank Robin enough for the job she did and I highly recommend her services :)

Reverend Robin absolutely made my wedding day a complete joy. My time with Reverend Robin began a full year prior to my wedding when my groom and I met with her to discuss what we wanted for our wedding. Her warmth and genuine concern with making sure our ceremony reflected who we are and what we wanted our day to be put us at ease immediately. Over the next year, Reverend Robin corresponded with us, helping us to find ceremony readings, etc that had special meaning for us. At our actual ceremony, Reverend Robin was such a calming and loving presence. Many of our family and friends commented to us on how much joy Reverend Robin exuded during the ceremony. You will find her to be an incredibly compassionate and genuinely loving officiant. I cannot recommend her more highly.

Robin has a warm personality and a lot of poise, which made our ceremony appealing and helped us stay calm when up at the altar. Even more important, she allowed us to write our own ceremony using her "Big Book" of ceremony excerpts plus our own original vows. We emailed it to her, and she offered ideas without pressuring us to change it at all. Robin happily and skillfully delivered it just as we had written. We couldn't imagine a better wedding minister and strongly recommend her to everyone, regardless of the message you want your ceremony to have.

In preparation for the big day, Robin was exceedingly patient in our back-and-forth and helped us create a ceremony that we truly loved. Though we were indecisive and slow with replying to her emails at times, she was a wealth of creative ideas. On the wedding day, she put everyone at ease and helped us to stay calm and really enjoy the ceremony. Robin, while very professional, exudes positive energy, and smiling, laughing guests were exactly what we wished for. We could not have asked for a better wedding officiant.

Robin was wonderful to my Fiance as well as my entire family. This was not my first marriage and I wanted it to be special. We found Robin through our Wedding Planner (Katherine Katz*wonderful too) and from the start she put us at eaze. She provided us with her wedding book which allowed us to choose the style and format that we wanted. We had a simple wedding in a hotel. We met her in person as well as communicated via e-mail until everything was just as we wanted. I really liked that she had us fill out a sheet so that she could tell our guests, in her own words what attracted us to each other as well as our hopes for our future together. She expresses such joy in what she is doing that just listening to her speak moved me to tears. I would recommend her to anyone.

I really liked that she had us fill out a sheet so that she could tell our guests, in her own words what attracted us to each other as well as our hopes for our future together. She expresses such joy in what she is doing that just listening to her speak moved me to tears. I would recommend her to anyone. Read less

Rev. Renteria was exactly what we were looking for to complete our small non-denominational family wedding. She was extremely helpful throughout the entire planning process by providing a full range of examples as well as offering suggestions based on her experience and skills. She was there to encourage us when needed and gave us space to complete all the other important wedding tasks. I would definitely recommend her.

Robin was THE BEST. Not only did she put together a beautiful ceremony that was perfect for my husband and me, she was was invaluable as a source of calm for my entire family. The day of the wedding, the rain got in the way of our outdoor ceremony and the Reverend kept in touch with my Dad (he was the designated contact for the day) and was able to assure him that the indoor space would be just as nice and even more intimate. Robin radiates a calming, loving presence and she made sure we were mentally present and fully prepared for the ceremony. She put together a meaningful ceremony and was very gracious about making changes. My husband and I are more spiritual than religious and she was able to tailor a ceremony that felt fairly traditional but without mention of God. I would HIGHLY recommend her to any couple- she is amazing!

If I could give Robin 6 stars I would because without her guidance, I don't believe my husband and I would have had a wedding ceremony at all, much less such beautiful one. Robin guided us through planning the ceremony from the very first time we contacted her up until the arrival of the big day. She helped us plan a ceremony that was both beautiful and stayed true to us as a couple, even with our major time and money constraints. The ceremony she lead for us on our wedding day was beautiful, her delivery was engaging, and her warm presence eased our nerves and set the perfect tone. Robin is a true professional that will go above and beyond to ensure that your wedding is exactly what you want it to be. Any couple who chooses Robin to officiate their wedding can rest assured that it will turn out wonderfully because she the absolute best at what she does.

We found Robin through her website and were a little skeptical letting someone we met on the internet marry us, but in the first moment we met her we KNEW that she would be perfect! She connected to both of us and that was really important to us. We met several times over the course of pre-marital counseling and got to know her. Together we customized our ceremony to fit us and then Robin rounded it out with bits of personalization that was perfect. We really wanted the ceremony to be meaningful and memorable for us, but so many people said they really loved our ceremony too. In addition, she helped coordinate our wedding party during the rehearsal and the day-of. If your family is anything like ours, her experience was extremely helpful!!

If you're looking for a reverend who is kind, experienced, professional yet warm, and who will make your ceremony personalized, look no further than robin. She made our small ceremony extraordinary; our guests kept saying how lovely and personal it was. We met robin in person once before our wedding and kept in touch with her via email which was great throughout all our busy planning. She makes everything easy and helps get rid of stress on your day.

Robin guided us through the process so easily and made us feel completely in control. She gave us just as much, or as little, help as we needed. Not to mention she was such a calming influence on the rehearsal and the day itself! We couldn't have asked for more from her : )

Her expertise in our request for a handfasting ceremony was most welcome and she took her time in making sure everyone could hear her and follow along. The flexibility to drive all the way from Hillsborough to Wake Forest on Labor Day weekend was very appreciative. She exceeded my expectations and everyone loved her! I would recommend her in the highest regard to anyone needing her services.

Robin helped me to create exactly the kind of personal, nontraditional wedding ceremony that I was looking for. When I began my consultation, I had a very faint idea of what I wanted - a small ceremony that blended our two cultures and languages in a way that was personal, short and sweet. I had no idea what that was going to look like. Robin really listened, provided us with ideas and materials, and worked with us to develop a ceremony plan that was uniquely ours. On the day of the wedding, Robin was flawless. She followed our plan to a t, and delivered our introductions, blessings, etc with warmth. Because we had a very small wedding, we elected not to do a rehearsal. Because of Robin's great communication and planning, we were still prepared, we knew what was coming and everything came together without a hitch.

We were behind schedule, but Robin came early. She even helped my family with set up. The ceremony was beautiful, simple and uniquely us, and I truly believe we couldn't have put together anything that special without Robin's help.

I confess, I had met Robin socially before we chose her to officiate our ceremony, but after coming highly recommended by two other couples and after checking out her website, we were 100% sold!

Both warm and professional, Robin's level of care and caring is reassuring in what can potentially be an overwhelming process. I can't begin to tell you how many compliments we got not just on the ceremony itself but also about how wonderful Robin was! Her face just radiates joy - and not just during the ceremony, it's a natural gift she possesses.

Her work with us resulted in a ceremony that was entirely 'us' through and through and vows that we will treasure for a lifetime.

We wanted a ceremony that was unique to ourselves and our families, and Robin's input and suggestions were extremely helpful in crafting our ideal ceremony. We were thrilled with the finished product - we both felt that the ceremony absolutely captured our love for one another in a truly personal way. We are still getting comments from guests about how it was the most moving and endearing wedding they've been to in years. Thanks Robin!

I can't recommend Robin more highly. She is a wonderful officiant! She provided us with tons of resources to plan a custom ceremony for our wedding, and incorporated our ideas (such as a "Red String of Fate" wine ceremony to tie in with my husband's Chinese heritage). She set just the right tone for the ceremony--warm but not too informal. We received many comments on how meaningful the ceremony was, and will highly recommend Robin to others.

She provided scripts for us to choose from and adapt--great for a couple who didn't quite know where to start. We made quite a few changes, and she was able to point out what was not traditional to make sure that was what we really wanted. We did. She also helped us think about a lot of little details that made everything work smoothly on the big day. She has a nice calming influence too which put us at ease. We absolutely loved that nothing felt rushed. As she conducted our wedding ceremony it was as though time stopped, and we were able to savor the moment.

Priceless.

She was a true professional who made our ceremony better than we imagined by providing a wealth of wedding options. We were able to choose one that suited us and customize it to reflect our traditions and beliefs. Since we were looking for something simple, beautiful, and somewhat non-traditional, it was important to find someone who could help shape our vision AND make it a reality. Robin was all of that and more, giving guidance to photographers and our guests to make sure that there were no unnecessary distractions. Most importantly, Robin provided a calming influence and gave us the time to savor the moment. We can't thank her enough.

We wanted a more secular ceremony, but one that would still be suitable for the Duke Chapel and Robin provided just that. She was very accommodating-- we had parts of the ceremony in Slovak which she had willingly and smoothly incorporated. She had also provided us with material that helped us tailor our ceremony to exactly what we wanted as a couple, and she was a warm and steady presence at both our rehearsal and the ceremony itself. Above all, from the time we first met with her, through the day of our wedding, she exuded a genuine happiness for us as a couple that made working with her to share in our day an easy and comfortable process that we will always look back on with fondness.

We can't thank her enough for all the help that she has given to us!

Robin did a great job at our wedding and was prompt and very professional but still very friendly. I'm so glad she knew where to be and who to find for signatures because I barely remember the day. The next day I couldn't even remember where she told me she put the marriage license but found it later with the gift envelopes; which was just great she put it there. I couldn't have asked for a better person to do our ceremony and everything went just very smooth and was very touching.

Rev. Robin Renteria. M.Div. responded with the following comments:

Just a clarifying note: When Angie refers to the license that I put with the gift envelopes, she's speaking of the decorative license I give the couple just for their enjoyment, not the legal license. I put the decorative license someplace I know will be safe and get home with them but that they don't have to keep track of on their wedding day. I keep very close track of the legal license and I promptly mail it back, signed, to the Register of Deeds.

If it's any indication, our minds were each separately made up within three minutes of meeting Robin. Her overall approach - informative, real, present, honest, gentle and loving - really hit home for me and my (now) husband. Neither of us likes to be the center of attention and we could both just tell immediately after meeting Robin that she would be exactly the calming presence that we would need on our wedding day. We were 110% happy with the choice.

Robin had these amazing pre-ceremony workbooks to help her get to know us and to help us to naturally tell our own story so she could work in the details and really personalize the wedding. We were very grateful to have a framework to help us get our head's around all that we wanted to include in our special day. Using these workbooks, we were able to shape a ceremony that was 100% what we wanted to say to one another and to our guests. We were able to incorporate the interests of our more traditionally Christian parents and grandparents while keeping true to ourselves. We wrote our own vows, which was made much easier with inspiration from countless sources and ideas that Robin provided us with. It really was the best part of the day for us. And it would absolutely not have been as meaningful or as poignant without Robin's help and presence.

All of our guests commented that it was the most "perfect" ceremony for the two of us and that it felt like Robin had really captured our story, our love, and our "vibe" and that she really created a wedding ceremony that was full of meaning. Our favorite comment was from our wedding photographer, who said that our wedding reminded her why she does her job, and that it reminded her of her own wedding, and that she was basically crying and laughing behind the lens as she captured it all.

Robin was so wonderful to work with! She spent time really getting to know my husband and I. The ceremony was exactly us and everything we were looking for. We were both very nervous and she made us feel very comfortable, which allowed us to really enjoy our ceremony, not just run through the steps. I can't tell you how many guests came up to me after with compliments of how the ceremony was very down to earth, understandable, and so meaningful to what marriage is really about especially for those who knew our personalities really well. She made our day amazing and I can't say thank you enough!

Its hard to know where to start with Robin because I think she is the only person that could have done a ceremony like she did ours. It was beautiful, peaceful, and fun at the same time. She is an AMAZING officiant. My husband and I met with her once before we decided to use her and were incredibly impressed with how personable she was and how eloquent she spoke, even on the fly. She was very quick to respond to emails with questions was very accommodating with what we were looking for in a ceremony. The rehearsal was a breeze, she showed up early, came prepared, was very genuine with everyone. The wedding ceremony exceeded my expectations. Everything on time, no hitches in anything, perfectly executed, and we felt like we have known her forever.

Robin also gives great recommendations for vendors she has worked with. We used one of her day-of-planner recommendations (Natasha Wayne) and don'r regret it at all.

Robin was amazing to work with. I put the deposit down to reserve our date in person the minute we met her, and it was one of the best choices we made for the wedding for the following reasons:

1) she put us right at ease, I was very nervous about standing in front of everyone and exchanging vows, but Robin ensured us it was not a performance, that we could face her and exchange vows quietly to each other while she worried about repeating things loudly for our guests.
2) Planning and writing our ceremony was a breeze. Robin provided us with her big book of resources which was packed full of sample wording, ceremonies, readings, you name it. We had fun going through and choosing parts that suited us, and then Robin provided some feedback and additional personalization. Everyone loved the ceremony.
3) She is a true professional. We had so many unexpected hiccups on our wedding day. from a giant down pour 15 minutes before our outdoor ceremony, to a black snake that made an appearance on the deck during the processional, Robin handled everything for us with a calming presence that reassured everyone.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Robin. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.

Our wedding ceremony was incredibly important to me and my fiancée (husband now). While we wanted a fairly short ceremony, we not only wanted something expressive that spoke to each of our hearts, but to also touch our guests in a meaningful way… and Robin helped us achieve that.
I cannot count how many of our guests approached us during the reception and in the days following commenting on how wonderful our officiant was. They loved everything about the ceremony and how it was delivered, and that it did indeed bring them pause and reflection in their own life.
Our wedding party (all of which were married themselves) had delightful things to say about Robin and were so pleased that we had found an officiant who was a perfect fit for the two of us.
Robin reminds you that your wedding ceremony is only about you and your partner, and to cherish that most important moment of your life.

Robin was PERFECT for our wedding. My husband and I had been searching for a minister who could do a wedding ceremony and help us contruct vows that would be true to our individual religious beliefs. She worked with us to construct every SINGLE word to our ceremony and it was absolutely beautiful. We also did our counseling with her and it was very helpful for us because she introduced many ideas and thoughts that we had not come across before. The sessions gave us several things to talk about and it strenghtened our relationship.
If you want a minister who will help you have a custom wedding in just about any type of religious faith or interfaith wedding I recommend Robin.

Robin is wonderful! She was a joy to work with and consistently reminds you throughout the process that the wedding is essentially about YOU (not your parents, grandparents, or guests). Robin was able to help us create a ceremony that was both meaningful to us, as well to our parents who had different religious beliefs. Robin always responded to our questions quickly and was always willing to assist with anything we needed. I do not hesitate to say that she was the best choice for the person to marry us, and I would choose her again in a heartbeat!

We are truly grateful to Robin for handling our ceremony so well. She was supporting us with every step of the way. When we only started planning, as a couple new to the process, we didn't know of many of the small details that had to be planned or decided on ahead. Robin gave us all this information and helped us make choices that would fit our ceremony. She worked with us patiently to create a customized ceremony and kept reassuring us that she will not stop until we are satisfied with it. At times we were busy planning other things for our wedding and couldn't provide immediate feedback. In those cases, we never felt pressured and rushed by Robin. She would always encourage us to take all the time we needed to come up with words that felt right for us.
On our wedding day, Robin arrived well in advance to make sure that everything was set up and in place. She took time to get to know our photographer and other vendors which showed us that she had a sincere interest in our ceremony. During the ceremony, Robin was 100% there with us and we could feel her calm and reassuring presence which took a lot of pressure and nervousness away. Robin spoke calmly and never rushed through the words.
At the end, she stayed with us for a little bit to congratulate and enjoy our moment with us. Lastly, she promptly took care of all the paperwork for us, and our marriage certificates arrived in the mail in only 4 days after the wedding!!
We would absolutely recommend Robin to our friends and any other couple who is looking for a trusting, professional and kind officiant. She was all that for us, and our happiest day in our lives will always be associated with her. Thank you, Robin!

Robin was wonderful! My husband and I planned our wedding in 6 weeks, and we come from very different religious backgrounds. Robin helped us create a fun, joyous, and inclusive ceremony that reflected who we are together and as individuals while managing to keep our families happy. We received many compliments on the ceremony and our choice in officiant. We highly recommend her.

Rev. Robin was a joy to work with! She really helped us to map out the ceremony and provided us with guidelines for writing our own vows. She was very flexible and took to time to counsel us as a couple in addition to performing our ceremony. She made us feel as if our wishes for our wedding were important and she incorporated important touches which made our ceremony memorable and special. We wish we could do it all over again! If we could, we would choose to have Rev. Robin as our officiant again and again!

Rev. Robin Renteria officiated our wedding on November 13, 2011 and did the most beautiful job. We knew when we first met with Robin that she was going to be our pick for our wedding officiant. She was the first person we chose when looking online and then after meeting her, we were happy that we needed to look no further. Robin worked with us to create a ceremony that was unique and special for us and that meant so much. Our wedding was a special day to unite as a couple and also to unite as a family because we just had a newborn son to celebrate as well. Robin did a wonderful job incorporating a recognition of our son into the ceremony. By the time our ceremony came around, Robin felt like and was a friend, and it was so comforting and natural to be up at the alter saying our vows and hearing our ceremony with her as our guide. Robin creates an atmosphere for you and your significant other that feels very personal, very intimate and very true to who you are as a couple. She gives you time during your ceremony to really soak in what is happening - we never felt rushed. Robin is also quite familiar with many of the wedding venues and vendors and that aspect will help your ceremony go smoothly - she was such a pro at our wedding.My family and guests all asked - "Where did you find her? She is fantastic!" Yes, she is. Definitely place her on your list of wedding officiants to speak with in your search for the perfect wedding officiant. She is first class! - Jen & Rob

Robin was great and delivered our ceremony in the exact way we wanted.

• She responded within hours of receiving emails, though the usual response time was shorter than a couple of hours.
• She was extremely helpful in the planning process, and willing to give constructive input.
• She was extremely flexible, and was willing to accomodate last-minute additions/changes flawlessly.
• She delivers her lines well and projected our happiness and joyfulness wonderfully.

She is a kind, friendly, women who genuinely hopes to make your wedding enjoyable which she truly did. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else than Robin. I should add that we called Robin a week before the ceremony and she managed to fit us into her schedule at 11:11am.
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed Robin being a part of it. She truly made it the most special day of our lives . I strongly suggest using Robin to officiate any type of ceremony!!

I don't even know where to begin with how AMAZING Robin was for our special day. Robin is one of the sweetest and nicest people I have ever met and she was a delight to work with. We met with her a couple of times before our wedding day and emailed each other even more. She has a great line of communication, is easy to get a hold of and is very flexible (which is nice since you'll be SUPER busy planning). When it comes to planning the ceremony Robin has an infinite amount of ideas that you can use but she does not limit your creativity if you have your own ideas. She can make the ceremony be what YOU want it to be... traditional, modern, unique... and it is always about you and your significant other. Almost every single one of our guests came up to us afterward and told us how personal the ceremony was and complimented the wonderful work Robin did! And we couldn't agree more, Robin hit it out of the park! :)

We had the pleasure of having Rev. Robin Renteria as our celebrant for our wedding at the State Club. Robin provided a wide range of ceremony options we could choose from and modify to exactly fit what we were after for our special day. Even though we were located on the West Coast, any questions we had were responded to promptly and professionally by Robin.
During the rehersal Robin was on the ball and concise in playing out exactly how our personal ceremony would go. At the end of the rehersal the wedding party were very clear on how the Big Day would play out.
On the Day itself, Robin was with us every step of the way. She provided great guidance and her calm demeanour meant we were always at ease with how things were progressing and what was happening next during the ceremony.
We had a great wedding and much of that had to do with how Robin helped us prepare and feel relaxed that everything was under control.
Thanks you so much for the best wedding day ever! We would gladly and highly recommend Rev. Robin Renteria based on our experience.

Her experience, creativity, and flexibility really shined through by helping to create our unique wedding ceremony - blending a Chinese wedding tea ceremony with western customs.

Her true willingness to help others made our counseling sessions so pleasant. We have been married for 5 months now and found lessons learned during these sessions to be invaluable.

We would highly recommend Robin to all our family and friends, anytime!

If I could give more than five stars for flexibility, I would for Reverend Renteria. Our wedding was changed at the last minute thanks to a nasty crasher by the name of Hurricane Irene, moving it up to Friday night instead of Saturday afternoon. This meant changes not only for my family but for Rev. Renteria as well, which she worked through with grace and professionalism.

She walked us through the ceremony choices and vows options before we finally settled, again at the last minute, on writing our own vows. Ours were short, sentimental to us, yet delivered with gentle emotion bringing their true meaning into the forefront for everyone.

I wouldn't recommend changing your plans at the last minute, but if necessity makes such demands, know that Reverend Robin Renteria is going to do all that she possibly can to work with you, create a memorable moment for every newlywed couple, and bring a smile to your day regardless of circumstances dictating those changes.

She was very easy to work with, was accessible even when she was away on vacation, and even handled my maid of honor's almost-fainting with poise and compassion and still kept the ceremony on-track. My husband and I could not have been more pleased with our wedding celebration and Reverend Robin as our officiant. She was really wonderful!

Two weeks ago, my girlfriend and partner of several years celebrated our love for and commitment to each other in a non-religious, non-legally-recognized commitment ceremony of which Robin was the officiant. We really could not have been happier with her, or with the ceremony she presided over. As a nominally "straight" couple who nevertheless feel that traditional marriage and the attendant legal ramifications are not what we're looking for, we wanted to make sure we found an officiant who was comfortable working outside of the paradigm of marriage, while still imparting a sense of momentousness and ritual importance to our ceremony. From our first meeting (on Gchat!), Robin impressed us with her sensitivity to our unique requests - she immediately reflected back the language in which we choose to express our love, and she was full of ideas and suggestions for how to deepen the symbolism of our ceremony.

As we finalized the script for our ceremony, Robin was able to bring to bear her years of experience with weddings and other ceremonies to suggest ways in which to streamline our event, or to offer us a possible interpretation for a line or segment that we were unsure of. She was a treasure trove of inspiration, and yet thoroughly un-possessive about her language and what she wrote for us - totally open to making the changes we requested, or collaborating on new wordings. Robin listened to my partner and I ramble, often contradictorily, about what we enjoyed about one another, and what we envisioned for our ceremony. Then she helped us to focus those thoughts, to whittle them down into a tight cohesive statement of our love. In rehearsal, Robin urged us to walk through each of the “beats” of our ceremony, while saving the words themselves for the day-of. She could not have been more right - when finally hearing words of the ceremony, words that we spent two months workshopping together, I really felt we had encapsulated what makes our relationship special. It felt amazing, and we got many, many compliments from our guests on the earnestness and individuality of our ceremony. I feel it was Robin who set that tone and made it possible for us to publicly express our love so well.

Robin was the the best! Her ceremony that she put together was beautiful! She was willing to work with us every step of the way! She incorporated everything that was important to us! She kept a consistent and open dialogue with us up until the very last minute right before the ceremony.

Everyone at our wedding told us that our ceremony was the most beautiful they had ever heard. One person told us that it made them believe in God again and another told us that the ceremony rejuvenated his spirit.

We had met with a few ministers before and none of them clicked with us the way that Robin did. She truly knows the meaning of marriage and love and carries that message through out the entire ceremony. We are in interfaith family and it was difficult for us to find a minister who could truly appreciate that and see from her heart where we were coming from. She did that and more. She worked with us to build a ceremony that addressed all types of spirituality and through that she brought every one of our guests together.

I had told Robin many years ago that if I ever got married again, she was going to do the ceremony. When the time actually came, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Robin's checklists, script, and planning tools make sure that nothing is overlooked while offering couples options, both traditional and innovative. This was especially appreciated in our case, because we were blending families of VERY different configurations! :-)

Robin excels at gently taking charge, guiding people to where they need to be, acting as a point person for nervous couples and loved ones alike, and negotiating tricky familial politics. She makes it possible for a couple to have a private space for their bonding even in the midst of a crowd. It was a truly special, personal service, and many people told me afterwards that it was the best ceremony they had ever witnessed.

I can't recommend her services highly enough.

Robin was able to make a very important and overwhelming aspect to any wedding painless and very easy, the words spoken at the ceremony. She breaks it down for you and guides you with knowledge and experience. She takes the worry out of the planning process by always being available. She is extremely professional from the planning to the rehearsal to the ceremony itself, she is a great resource on your wedding day! Thank You Robin!!

Robin is FABULOUS! She responded to all of our emails the same day (and we had a lot!), and she was super helpful answering questions from ceremony order to how to handle overly dramatic grandmothers. We felt completely comfortable with Robin, and we loved how she guided us in writing our ceremony but really let us do as little or as much as we wanted. Her e-book of readings had tons of different ceremony styles and prayers and orders, and she had very thorough forms and schedules for us to fill out (which no doubt helped our day go as smoothly as it did)! We highly recommend having Robin conduct your rehearsal too! We had a huge wedding party, but she had total control and we left the rehearsal feeling totally confident about the next day. She didn't mind taking questions from anyone. And our ceremony was absolutely perfect. Many of our guests have commented on how much they liked her and how great and intimate our ceremony was. Robin really makes sure that the ceremony is about the two of you, and we were able to completely block out everyone else. We REALLY enjoyed working with Robin over the last year, and we believe that we made a lifelong friend, as well as spiritual guide, in Robin. Thank you, Robin!!!

Robin gave us a wonderful ceremony and was incredibly easy to work with over the preceding months. Every time we emailed her with a question or to make changes to the service (which we usually did in the evening), she got back to us by the very next morning. Scheduling a rehearsal the day before was very easy, and she arrived early for both that and the ceremony. The bride's and groom's families are from very different cultures, and Robin helped us design a ceremony that would be inclusive of both cultures. From talking to both sets of families afterwards, it's clear that everyone was very satisfied with the ceremony and found Robin to be very warm and professional. We would highly recommend her to anyone in the Triangle area.

Robin was the perfect officiant for us. When we first met with Robin we knew we wanted her to be a part of our day because of how kind, respectful, and helpful she was. When you are around her you feel happy because of how happy and positive her outlook on life is. When we started creating our ceremony, we were so thankful she was there. We gave her our ideas and she gave us some. Robin created our ceremony and sent us a draft within 24 hours of meeting with her. We made several adjustments along the way but each time we did so she was so prompt with her responses and with her help in guiding us along the way. At the rehearsal Robin was wonderful! She told the entire wedding party and ourselves that we just needed to soak it in. The hints that she gave us and our wedding party really made the difference in our day (we remember each part of our ceremony). At the wedding our wedding planner did not show up so Robin and our DJ (Lenny Fritts) stepped in to make sure everyone was where they needed to be. Robin made our ceremony wonderful and we got so many compliments about how personal and meaningful our ceremony was. Robin is truly a kind spirit and a true professional. We almost went with a different wedding planner but I am SO thankful we did not because I would not have wanted anyone else to marry us. Thank you Robin for helping to make our day so special!

We cannot say enough about the fact that our wedding was more special that it could have been because Robin officiated. We were originally looking for someone to work with us for a backyard/non-denominational wedding. Although,we wished to include Native American traditions from my (bride) heritage. But we wanted to find someone with whom we felt a connection and that could make the process an easy one (which wedding rarely are). After interviewing 3 other officiants and then speaking with Robin, there was no question, SHE WAS OUR PERFECT FIT for this service. We needed someone to help us through the process of the legalities, but to have a flexible style to help us determine what we truly wanted to get out of this wedding ceremony. ROBIN WAS EXCEPTIONAL at this and more. From helping with the specifics of the service, to determining what family might do to be included to making the guests feel a part of the process during the service, it was, for lack of another word, PERFECT. It wll be a memory we cherish forever and it is largely because of Robin's compassion and guidance in the process. We would recommend her to anyone that wishes to have a positive experience in the wedding process.

Robin deserves 10 out of 5 stars! She was a joy to work with. We did everything through email and it was a flawless ceremony. Robin is quick, prompt, and thorough in her responses and extremely flexible. Robin let us have the ceremony we wanted by copy and pasting some of her scripts, as well as adding in some stuff of our own. She was very respectful of our avoidance of any kind of religious preferences and handled my father's Catholic traditionalism with my... lack of traditionalism. I would recommend Robin to every couple looking for an officiant!

We felt extremely comfortable with her from our pre-marital sessions through to our wedding day. We would HIGHLY recommend booking Robin ASAP if you're looking for an officiant, as she gets booked rather quickly! Thanks again for all that you've done for us Robin!!

From a professional standpoint, Robin was very thorough, responded to all our emails/inquiries very quickly, and was very trustworthy and made us feel very confident about having her officiate our wedding. From a personal side, we couldn't have asked for a better officiant. She helped us create such a personal ceremony that all of our guests asked us how we knew her and thought that she was a lifelong family friend - they were shocked when I told them I found her by google search. In addition to helping us create an incredibly personal ceremony and vows, her delivery of the service was superb. And all those pictures you see of her with the big smile on her face are genuine - she is always smiling, and is genuinely happy to be a part of peoples' marriage process. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a minister who will work with you, your personal tastes, your individual beliefs, and who will take the time to get to know you and become an integral part of your entire wedding experience.

I cannot say enough about Robin! We were planning our wedding in NC from 3.000 miles away in Oregon. We found Robin last minute, and even though we met her for the first time at our rehearsal, she immediately felt like an old friend. She set the tone for a calm, relaxed, loving event among an otherwise stressful situation. She is so knowledgeable about all the elements that make for a great ceremony and made sure that no detail (and no one) was forgotten. She is organized, reliable and caring - just the person you want around on your wedding day. Her script was exactly what we were looking for – we gave her a skeleton and she turned it into something more beautiful than we could have imagined. We are not religious, but it’s obvious that Robin can speak to the merits of marriage and love through many lenses and she really tailors her scripts to the couple. I can go on and on, but the long and short is this - Robin is the best, I’m so glad we found her and I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone – of any faith, in any union.

On such short notice, we would have accepted a standard cookie cutter ceremony, but she worked quickly to share ideas and options that allowed us to customize our own ceremony that met our needs perfectly. The ceremony was personalized to fit our exact needs. Everyone was commenting on her amazing performance. It was like we had known her for years. I am so thankful to have found her and you will be too.

I called and she had the date open, it was full speed ahead from there. Robin was very helpful in providing many choices for what we wanted for the ceremony. It really put me at ease to work with Robin and she was very flexible with the changes we wanted in the ceremony. Our wedding was unconventional (sick babies in hands), but I was never more relaxed to know that Robin was our officiant and would make it special. It was exactly what I wanted.

Rev Renteria was a excellent officiant for our very private, very impromptu wedding. She was a great sport as we drug her through a goat pasture to be nibbled upon by dairy goats during the ceremony. She informed us of the marriage requirements and what we needed to do on a very timely and professional basis. We would recommend Rev Renteria for any ceremony large or small!

Robin was AMAZING. We were coming from New Jersey and had family coming from Alabama, so we decided to meet in the middle and hold the ceremony in North Carolina. We had only ever driven through NC, never stopped, so we had no idea where to even start. Once we found Robin, everything fell right into place! She was SUCH a help - suggested several venues and offered to recommend restaurants in addition to her regular officiant duties. She already had another wedding scheduled for that day, but since we had some flexibility, she was able to do a late afternoon ceremony.

Writing the ceremony was EASY with her. She gave us many examples of ceremonies she's performed before, and we were able to compile something that worked for us as a couple. She offered suggestions where necessary, and was extremely accommodating through the entire process.

We met her in person mere minutes before the actual ceremony... I had no doubt from the moment we met that we made the best choice ever. She was so wonderful, and spoke so eloquently and with an obvious love for performing ceremonies.

We cannot recommend Robin enough. You will NOT be disappointed. :)

We were very pleased to have Robin officiate our ceremony. She is a wonderful, sweet and kind person. Very "motherly" yet firm with our wedding party, which was great because it made the rehearsal and ceremony go very smoothly! Because of her everyone knew exactly where to be and what to do so it was never chaotic. She caters to the bride and groom 100% and does not let anyone else intefere on how we wanted to ceremony to take place. She made us feel very comfortable during the whole ordeal, for which we are so very grateful. I think I would have been way more nervous if it wasn't for her.

Working with Robin was such a blessing! Looking back on our wedding, the actual ceremony was our favorite part of the whole day. With Robin's help (and her 150+ page wedding ceremony book!), we were able to personalize each detail of our ceremony - from the readings we chose, to having all our family and friends pronounce us husband and wife - and Robin tailored her words especially for us. Guests commented on Robin's warm, friendly nature and told us how much the ceremony reflected us as a couple. Although we were initially planning for a late afternoon wedding and evening reception, Robin's tight schedule (with another wedding booked later that evening) pushed our time-line up a few hours. This turned out to be a blessing for our budget, since we served a simple hors d'oeuvres reception instead of a full sit-down meal, and a much better fit for our casual, no-fuss style.

Thanks so much Robin - we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day!

We found Robin over the internet and contacted her to see if she would be willing to marry us, even though we were outside of her "service area" (for lack of a better term). Robin got back to us and was able to work something out so she could officiate our wedding. When we met Robin in person, she was so warm and inviting....we instantly got the "warm fuzzies" and we knew we made the right choice. Throughout the process, Robin was a great sounding board -- helping with tough situations with family and how to avoid drama on the day of the wedding, which was much appreciated. Robin helped us write a ceremony that was not only appropriate, but "us". She worked with us several times with revisions, provided advice, and helped us find additional wording to work in a unique setting. When she married us, she did so with such poise and grace, and delivered in such a powerful manner that even people in the seats were moved to tears. Two weeks later, people are still telling me how beautiful the ceremony was and how they liked it because it wasn't at all predictable or run of the mill -- exactly what we had hope to achieve. We would highly recommend Robin to anyone looking for an officiant -- she is a true delight to work with!

We did our homework researching our Reverend, as we did with everything! Robin was kind, understanding, and simple when it came to business, which was refreshing. She was one of 2 service providers I never had to worry about, and we even paid in full early, since we could count on her. She made our ceremony the way we wanted it, and we were surprised to receive lots of compliments during our reception about how meaningful and unique it was. Who knew anyone really listens? I would recommend Robin absolutely 100% without a doubt to anyone.

I couldn't be happier with Robin as the officiant of our wedding! From the first meeting I knew she would pay attention to all the details important to my husband and I. She gives the option for as much or as little input as you'd like to every aspect of your ceremony, and is happy to accommodate any special requests. Her "big book" made creating a special ceremony, unique to us an easy as the process could be. If you decide to go with Robin, have her attend your rehearsal to make the real thing as seamless as possible. I plan non-profit events for a living and am extremely detail oriented. When Robin offered to run the rehearsal I must say I was very hesitant because I've been involved in weddings where the Reverend was better to stick to performing the ceremony and leaving the details to a wedding director -- that couldn't be farther from true with Robin. She has performed enough weddings to know all the ins and outs of what could go wrong, and know how to lead a rehearsal so that everyone is comfortable with their role for the big day. I give her an enthusiastic two thumbs up!

She was a wonderful, calming presence right before the ceremony, and came prepared with her own sound system, copies of readings, Kleenex, the whole nine yards!

She was always prompt, getting right back to us any time we contacted her. She had lots of materials that helped us figure out what we wanted in our ceremony.

At the wedding itself, Robin was a wonderful presence. The ceremony was a perfect mix of personal detail, a touch of humor, and thoughtful reflection on marriage. Her PA system was very easy to use for the speakers. We received lots of compliments afterwards about the ceremony. We highly recommend her without reservation.

We were so lucky to find our way to Robin. So much of wedding planning feels like you're stuck in an industry cog, but Robin was a breath of fresh air in that mix. She took time to get to know us and understand our perspective on our ceremony – despite the fact that we were not members of the fellowship where she sometimes talks. She provided us with a lot of wonderful sample ceremonies that she'd done in the past (without overwhelming us with too many), and she was 100% willing to work with us on incorporating new aspects. Most importantly, though, on the day of our ceremony, her incredible smile and peacefully vibrant nature set a wonderful tone for the day. We had a lot of varied family dynamics at play, and Robin made everyone feel comfortable, embraced and happy.

We were so happy to have Robin as the officiant at our wedding. She is a really warm and wonderful person and from the beginning she made sure that our wedding ceremony would be exactly what we had pictured. She was accommodating to all our needs, and we had many, including making the ceremony bilingual by having a friend interpret everything into Spanish. She also fully respected our wishes for keeping the ceremony secular. When creating the text she provided us with numerous examples and never had any problem as we changed things around until it felt right. Most importantly, she took the time to get to know us and our story, so we felt very comfortable with her fulfilling this very important role on our wedding day. Thank you Robin for helping to make our wedding day truly memorable.
Best wishes,

Most importantly, she took the time to get to know us and our story, so we felt very comfortable with her fulfilling this very important role on our wedding day. Thank you Robin for helping to make our wedding day truly memorable.
Best wishes,

Robin is wonderful! She is friendly, open, and welcoming during the initial planning stages and really makes an effort to learn about you as a couple.

Robin was wonderful to get to know both personally and professionally. From the moment we met her, we were so comfortable with her, and knew we wanted her to stand with us on our wedding day. She truly seems to enjoy what she does, is flexible, accommodating, and wants to do everything possible to make your ceremony special. We received many positive comments about her from our friends and family after the ceremony, and wouldn't have had it any other way!

Robin was terrific to work with during this process. She was available to answer any questions that arose and responded to any questions within 24 hours at the latest. We felt completely comfortable going without a rehearsal because Robin made it so easy to handle everything by email and/or telephone. The materials she provides to review in planning the ceremony are extremely helpful in giving you ideas on how to personalize your own ceremony. We could not have asked for an officiant who was more kind, thorough, or such a calming presence for the event as a whole. Thanks Robin for everything!

Robin did a phenominal job individualizing our ceremony so that it perfectly reflected who we are as people and as a couple. There were many points of the ceremony where my husband and I wanted a variation of what she provided, and she did a wonderful job rewording the ceremony so that each word spoke to our specific love and commitment. We had 150 guests at our ceremony and literally every single one mentioned to us how beautiful the ceremony was, how it was 'so us' and wished she was around when they had married! Even my father and a few of my bridesmaids asked that I email them the ceremony because they loved it so much and wanted to relive the words and wisdom she spoke of on our day. My husband and I are so greatful to have found Robin and to have had her as our minister. She made the rehearsal painless with her calming spirit and the ceremony more than we could have ever dreamed together. Thanks Robin - because of you we were able to honor our forever among our loved ones.

Robin was the officiant our our May wedding at the Matthew's house in Cary. I can say nothing but good things about the way that she handled not only the ceremony, but the moments leading up to the ceremony, as well as the moments following the ceremony. She was very organized and helped out with a lot of the little things that you wouldn't even think about. She has a calming affect and is such a sweet person. She also worked with us at the rehearsal the day before. She was very organized and experienced and told us exactly what needed to happen. She also had a lot of patience to deal with the chaotic nature of both the wedding ceremony and the rehearsal. I had a lot of both friends and family come up to me and tell me what a nice job that they thought Robin had done during our wedding. She was very flexible with us and helped us craft the ceremony that we wanted. She was very open to suggestions, but also had some nice ideas that seemed to fit our intentions perfectly. We didn't want an overly religious ceremony, and she was perfectly fine with making it as religious or non-religious as we wanted. I would recommend Robin to anyone, and she is actually doing our friend's wedding in a week based on our recommendation!

Rev. Robin was absolutely awesome, from the beginning she let us know the ceremony was ours to build. She sent all kinds of different choices and examples of ceremonies, and allowed us to build our own ceremony which she put the finishing touches on. Our ceremony was absolutley our own. Everyone at our wedding commented about her enthusiasm during the ceremony...we could not have been happier.
We also had Rev. Robin do our pre-marital counseling. I'm glad we made that choice. We were able to get to know her better and she was able to get to know us better. More importantly, Jill and I learned a lot about each other and had a ton of fun doing it.

She is a kind, warm and genuine person who will go the extra mile for you. She brought such calmness to us on our day...I still get chills thinking back to our ceremony. We are so very lucky to have found Robin...I would recommend her to anyone!!!

She worked with us in every aspect - even coming to our home to perform the ceremony with only a few days notice. She is very pleasant, well tempered, and she smiled the whole way through the ceremony (so all of our pictures turned out very well). Feel comfortable in telling her exactly what makes the ceremony special for you and she will help you accomplish it.

Robin Renteria is a wonderful officiant. Our wedding was absolutely perfect, the ceremony was so meaningful and our own. One of the aspects of our ceremony that was very important to us was having something that no one else did, at the same time as making it about us and our love. Robin helped us every step of the way, designing a ceremony around the people that we are.

So many family and friends told us that we had the ideal wedding, what everyone imagines a ceremony to be, something they had never experienced before. I believe that the ceremony was the best part of our day, something I will remember forever.

During the ceremony, Robin would ensure that we were staying present in the moment by pausing and allowing us to catch our breath and refocus. I have heard many people say that their ceremony was a blur, but because Robin helped us stay in the moment, I will remember each portion of our ceremony in full detail.

I recommend that anyone seeking an officiant for their wedding meet with Robin. Our day was the best day of our lives, Robin had everything to do with that. If you want a memorable, meaningful, love filled ceremony, Robin Renteria is the officiant for you.

Thank you Robin! We loved every detail, and words are not enough to express our gratitude to you.

Love and Kindness,
Kelly & Todd

Robin was absolutely wonderful. She made putting our ceremony together very easy. She was very flexible and willing to let us completely customize our ceremony. She also talked with us to get to know us so she could add a bit of her own personal touch to the ceremony. It was very nice. She also confirmed with us several times the final ceremony to ensure she did not say anything we had not already approved. She was invaluable at the rehearsal, running us through everything very organized and was wonderfully helpful with advice on how to make things run smoothly. One the day of our wedding she was very pleasant and helpful. I did not have a coordinator and she was able to step in and make sure we were all in the right places at the right time. She went through the ceremony slowly allowing us to take our time and take it all in, especially each other. We did a Celtic Handfasting Ceremony as part of our overall ceremony and she did a wonderful job. She had no problems adding in special touches like that. I would highly recommend her to any bride. She is very reasonable priced as well.

Robin was an absolute delight to work with! We began the planning of the wedding while I was in West Africa and she always responded quickly and professionally. Once we finally met, I was sad that we hadn't met earlier. She's very upbeat and full of joy and I wouldn't have wanted to work with anyone else to officiate my wedding ceremony. There were comments the day of the wedding, as well as days after, commenting on how flexible and willing she was to combine the different cultures that we brought to the wedding. Please consider bringing Robin into your wedding plans as I'm sure you will not regret it.

We feel so fortunate to have found Robin to marry us. Robin was so understanding, patient, and helpful throughout our wedding preparation. We had two ceremonies - the first Robin officiated for us as a civil ceremony and the second was a Catholic ceremony in a church. Robin made phone calls and provided special paperwork to our church, which allowed us the opportunity to have our marriage convalidated by the church. She also provided us with great materials to pick out every piece of our ceremony to make it exactly what we wanted. Working with her was a pleasure, and even one of our groomsmen commented on how calming her voice was. Many thanks to Robin for helping to make our wedding so special!

We found Robin through another officiant that happened to already be booked for our date and we are very happy that we did. She is great to work with. She has complied a book of different options for your ceremony that you can use to create your service. She works with you to write exactly what you want to say and how you want to say it. We really enjoyed the experience. We were both very worried about how to write a service and what to say and she helped us to create a really beautiful, moving service that was really true to us rather than just cookie cutter. Thanks Robin!!

Robin is great, and when we give 5 stars, we really are giving 5 stars! Our friends who came for the wedding all said Robin is most probably the best you can find. She's more than just an officiant, she's a friend, warm, genuine, sincere, and her service is very very personal - it's like having a your best friend to marry you. Give Robin a call, have tea together and discuss what you'd like to have with her, you'll know what I mean. :)

Robin Renteria did such a wonderful job assisting us in creating a wedding ceremony that reflected who we are as individuals and as a couple. She was so great to work with, extremely professional and very open to any ideas that we had. We have gotten so many compliments regarding the ceremony and Robin herself, she made us feel comfortable and made our ceremony about us. We will never forget the wonderful event and the special part that Robin played in it. We would recommend Robin to anyone looking for an officiant. Thank you Robin!!!

Robin was truly a delight to work with! Since we were not getting married in a church, one of the hardest parts of planning the wedding was finding an officiant. We weren’t even entirely sure what we wanted. Once we met with Robin, we knew she was right for us. One of the biggest compliments that I received in regards to our wedding was that it was “the most loving wedding I have ever been to”. I think that you can plan a lot of things about your wedding, the food, the music, the decorations, but you can’t plan for it to be the most loving wedding. That I think has to happen organically, and I believe that was as a direct result of Robin.
Many of our guests told us what a beautiful ceremony we had. Many of them said it was the most beautiful and personal they had ever been to. They kept raving about how it was just so “us”. Robin allowed us to plan and personalize our ceremony. Her book of things to choose from was invaluable! She has so many different suggestions with so many different feels that you can truly build your ideal wedding. We literally picked and chose words and phrases from different examples until it felt just right. Robin also asks questions of you and works those personal things into the ceremony (if you want). She is such a dynamic public speaker that she demands respect and attention but in a very gentle and caring way. We truly felt the importance and gravity of getting married during our first meeting with her as she was going through things she could say. Even there, in her home, it felt real for the first time. I knew that was what I wanted for my wedding.
Robin allowed me to relax during the ceremony because I knew exactly how it was going to go, and I knew it was just what we wanted. Thanks to Robin, we truly had the wedding of our dreams, and I cannot think of a better person to have married us!

For the fee we paid, Rev. Renteria provided her "big book" of ceremony pieces that we were able to look through and pull from to create a ceremony that fit us perfectly. We didn't need to interact with her much because the examples made it so easy to craft the right ceremony and words, but I know that had we needed her input or something different, she would have been happy to do whatever was needed. The only thing that prevents me from giving her 5 out of 5 for all items was what seemed like breaks that were a few seconds too long during our vows -- I expected that after we repeated, she would start right in with the next one, but instead she waited as long as would be necessary to say those words again. But while we were eager to get on with it, most of our guests didn't think the pauses were too-too long. I was a little disappointed not to get to meet her in person before the ceremony started, but I understand that she and the groom and coordinator had some last minute re-positioning to work out since the audience chairs occupied more space than we'd expected. Rev. Renteria is a professional who has conducted hundreds if not thousands of ceremonies, and because of her experience I knew I had no need to worry about that most important part of our day.

Rev. Robin Renteria. M.Div. responded with the following comments:

I'm glad to get this feedback from Joanna. I intentionally go slowly when prompting the vows so that couples have time to drink in the moment before it rushes on to the next (I tell them before the ceremony that I want to give them 'breathing room.') and I try to take my pacing from the couple, i.e. if they look at me then I know I'm going a little too slowly. Most couples love that I go slowly. From now on I'll double check to make sure that each couple knows what I plan to do and I will honor any requests or desires that the couple have.

If you are new to weddings or have mixed cultured wedding, Robin provides a wealth of information to navigate the wedding ceremony and process. She was very thorough, eloquent and made us so much at ease when talking with her. I could trust she would take care of us & guide us well. She did a great job of incorporating "us" into the ceremony without us having to feel the pressure of portraying our love. Would highly recommend

Her resources are as useful as they are varied, giving us ample room to make the ceremony our own. Her warmth and authenticity surface at first meeting, eliminating undue stress and helped us concentrate on fully experiencing the ceremony for all it's worth - because it goes by fast! We received MANY compliments on Robin immediately following and ceremony, as well as throughout the ENTIRE reception. Highly recommended!

Rev. Robin was incredibly helpful and obviously experienced in what she is doing. She helped us create a very meaningful ceremony, and it turned out better than we could have imagined. She gave us the right amount of direction and assistance. I get the feeling she really knows how to adjust to any kind of couple, and lets each couple lead the way... though, you may not even realize that is what is happening! We got more than our ceremony out of it, as she guided us to understand the meaning of this rite of passage, not through direct words, but just through the way she gently steered us, based on who we are. We were definitely happy with the whole thing.

We actually found Robin when looking for pre-marital counseling. She is trained to do the "prepare/enrich" program and is open to couples of all kinds. She can write personalized ceremonies, but we needed to be able to write the core of it ourselves. She offered sample ceremonies which we used as outline and sample vows which served as inspiration. I was so impressed with how she was able to deliver our ceremony with heart. This was not wooden reading, and didn't come close to feeling second best since we didn't spring for her start to finish personalized composition. She let the words sink in (four guests commented on that directly after the ceremony) and she counseled us to keep it simple, making sure we did one thing at a time which was important I found on the day of when my memory was simply gone. Plus she handled the legal part smoothly.

A reflection of her professional experience came when she announced the moment of silence portion in the ceremony. Two babies were in attendance and she ad libbed "with the exception of baby jubilations, which are always welcome" perfectly setting the tone and easing both mama's minds I'm sure.
