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.

Rev. Robin Renteria is one of the most highly recommended officiants in the NC Triangle!

A seminary educated, ordained Unitarian Universalist (non-denominational) minister, she has been marrying loving couples in the NC Triangle area for 20 years. She welcomes couples of all faiths, cultures, and lifestyles. She officiates religious, spiritual and secular ceremonies, both traditional and non-traditional, in the venue of your choice in the NC Triangle. She works with you to create a ceremony that celebrates your joy and your traditions in your language of love. You create a script together that you have total edit power over.

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

- a large e-book full of ideas for all aspects of the ceremony (see more about this below),

- a sound system so that no one misses a word,

- that extra support to make sure you arrive at your wedding day with an open heart and a relaxed mind.

Her warm, friendly, professional manner helps you relax and enjoy your planning, rehearsal and ceremony.



She also provides and recommends pre-marriage counseling, but doesn't require it,

She will go that extra mile to make sure your wedding is just what you want it to be, and is the most special day of your life.

She also welcomes Renewal of Vows, ceremonies of union and baby blessings.



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. You can find a table of contents, reviews of her book and the easy steps to purchase it on www.ultimateweddingceremonyworkbook.com. Read less

Rev. Robin Renteria is fantastic! Robin performed our ceremony as well as organized our rehearsal which was a huge help!! She was always on time, very organized, and focused especially when our group wasn't. She reined everyone in and both the rehearsal and ceremony were flawless. Neither my husband nor I wanted a long or religious ceremony. Robin sent us soo many resources and ceremony examples to be able to build the ceremony that was unique and perfect for us. She performed the short ceremony in such a way that even though it was short and sweet it didn't pass us by and she made sure we savored the special moment in our lives. I would absolutely recommend Robin to anyone and everyone!

We were so pleased with Rev. Robin Renteria! She worked with us to create a ceremony that was just what we wanted! We were unsure what to do about a ceremony because my husband and I are not religious, but much of our family is. She was quick to respond to emails, and provided us with so much information that helped us plan the ceremony! I was very overwhelmed when thinking about the ceremony and what should be said, but Rev. Renteria had so many planning tools and great suggestions, that it was super easy! Everybody commented on how great the ceremony was, and we couldn't have been more pleased. I would definitely recommend any couples to hire Rev. Renteria!

Robin made our ceremony perfect! She was so helpful, providing us with TONS of guidance to help write the exact ceremony we wanted. She provided suggestions, was very responsive, and allowed us to make it just how we had hoped. She is very professional, while balancing a loving nature about her. You feel like you are in safe hands all through the process! We were very pleased!

My husband discovered Robin by Googling (and she was on our venue's approved vendor list) and we were so pleased with everything she did. When we met Robin we both knew right away she was the perfect person to marry us. She's very relaxed and open, and you can tell she loves love and being a part of people's wedding day. Having our consultation with her really gave us all a chance to get to know each other and for her to understand our love story. She took a crazy amount of notes and we kept in touch via email to fine tune our ceremony to exactly what we wanted. After the wedding was over, I can't even count how many of our guests came up to us to say it was a beautiful ceremony, so much fun, and incredibly unique. We aren't super religious, and Robin accommodated for that easily, while still pleasing our more conservative family members. I don't expect to get married again but I would definitely use Robin again if I did :).

Robin Renteria officiated our May wedding at The Oaks at Salem and we could not have been happier that we chose her to be our officiant. Throughout the planning process, she was full of wonderful resources and advice and helped us create a ceremony we loved. I am Jewish and my husband is secular, and Robin helped us work in some Jewish elements as well as some literary and Buddhist influences that were meaningful to us. So many people commented on how lovely the ceremony was. Robin's presence is warm, loving, and centered, and she's an eloquent writer and speaker. She truly made our ceremony amazing and we cannot thank her enough. I HIGHLY recommend her!

I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Robin. We initially met her through a Skype interview and every word she spoke was captivating - we knew almost immediately that she would partake in our wedding day. We had initially intended to write our own vows but with some guidance from her we decided to create a vow that we shared. We had such a fun time perusing her marriage book and selecting passages and creating our perfect ceremony. When a little rain interrupted the ceremony she was spot on with a spare microphone to amplify sound inside the venue. I encourage you to allow her to brighten your wedding day.

Finding the right wedding officiant was by far the most challenging aspect for us to determine. Seeing as neither of us is particularly religious (but not entirely secular either), we knew we would have to seek out someone who was in the least non-denominational. Unbeknownst to us, there are those who are Unitarian Universalists – which Rev. Robin Renteria happened to be! We ultimately based our decision to go with Rev. Robin based on the glowing reviews she had received from others. She certainly surpassed any of our wildest expectations. In addition to serving as our wedding officiant, we decided to take advantage of her Marriage Enrichment sessions…totally worth every single minute!

Rev. Robin is an incredible person: one who shares in your personal goals (individually and collectively), genuinely wants the happiest future for you as a married couple, and has the uncanny ability to generate positive energy both within and around you by just being in her presence. She made the entire planning process an absolute breeze: from the materials she provides to help build your personally unique ceremony, to her generous flexibility in time and patience, she allows the process to flow organ

Our wedding was on April 25, 2015 at The Fearrington Village in Pittsboro, NC. In the end, we had 109 guests, including the bridal party.

Robin was recommended to us by our Wedding Planner, and we could not have been happier. We initially Skyped with Robin, which was perfect for our hectic schedules. Within the first five minutes of speaking to Robin, we knew she was the perfect Officiant for us. She has this calming sense about her that really makes you feel at ease. As our wedding grew closer, we were a little overwhelmed about how exactly we wanted our ceremony. After another Skype with Robin, she narrowed down our options, and built the perfect personalized ceremony for us. It was also amazing having her at our rehearsal. She really made us feel so comfortable, calm, and ready for our wedding day. Our ceremony was so beautiful thanks to Robin, and our guests could not stop talking about how great she was.
