What is a "Platinum" ceremony?

A unique personalized ceremony is much more than the action of arranging and selecting poems, rituals, readings, etc. The ceremony is the CORE of the wedding and should capture the depth of meaning for the couple’s journey together. Each couple is a co-creator of their ceremony in expressing their love, commitment, hopes and desires for their future.

I create personalized, original ceremonies, for interfaith, intercultural, interracial, religious, same-faith, interdenominational, humanist, atheist and agnostic weddings, honoring the cultural, ethnic and racial diversity of each couple.

Many avenues are used to accomplish this goal. One such avenue is the completion of a questionnaire by the bride and groom individually which allows them to express themselves fully while offering the necessary answers which allows me to get to know each on a deeper level. My role as a wedding minister is very sacred to me. To be a part of a couple’s commitment to travel the path of life together is one of the truly emotionally gratifying experiences.

My name is Elisheva C. Clegg. I am an ordained interfaith minister and pastoral counselor, M.A serving Virginia, West Virginia, District of Columbia, Maryland and North Carolina. Please go to our website at http://www.reverendelisheva.org/test_testimonials.php and read our testimonials before making any decision. Thank you for your inquiry.

You can reach us by phone at (434) 589-4864 or (434) 825-0881 anytime for further discussions. Please indicate that you have found us on the WeddingWire site when calling or writing. Our email is: elishevanumber7@earthlink.net. Read less

Reverends Elisheva and Wade did an outstanding job for our wedding ceremony. My guests said it was the most beautiful, unique love filled ceremony they have seen. When we set out to find officiants for our wedding we were looking for someone that could integrate both our religions and cultures, I am from Puerto Rico and my husband from Morocco. Let me just say Reverends Clegg were God sent and went beyond our expectations. When we hung up from the first conversation had, we knew we had found two special souls to marry us. This was confirmed on our first meeting and every conversation after. Reverend Elisheva was quick to respond to our emails, always professional, friendly and loving. They really captured our essence on the ceremony script, everyone felt the love we have for each other and our families. We love how they included our story and our words. It was truly perfection. Thank you so much for a job well done, you are truly gifted. We can not wait to get together with you again!

Both my husband and I could not get over how perfect the wedding ceremony was, it was the BEST part of the day for us. It was exactly what we wanted, both romantic and sweet, but at the same time humorous (which we asked for). Everyone at the reception kept talking about how it was THE sweetest and most personal wedding ceremony they had EVER been to and how they didn't think there was a dry eye in the whole audience. Everyone we talked to said they just were blown away at everything and were completely captivated by the ceremony. Thank you Reverend Elisheva and Reverend T. Wade for this amazing and wonderful memory that you have given us. It is truly the best gift we received and we can't stop thinking about the things we said to eachother that day.

We had asked for a sweet request for the cellphones to be put away before the ceremony and Reverend T. Wade and Reverend Elisheva handled it beautifully. I can't tell you how many people actually came up to us afterwards and were like "wow! It was so nice to actually, in this day in age, just live "IN the moment" and watch such a lovely ceremony! It was so personal" Thank you so much for making that suggestion for us in such a nice way, where people actually thanked us afterwards for doing so hahaha.

Our wedding ceremony was absolutely amazing and everything we had hoped it would be and it was only because Reverend Elisheva and Reverend T. Wade got to know us first and made the ceremony "our" day and not just another ceremony. They have married us and will forever be in our hearts for given us such a treasured memory!

Don't look any further, you've found the "ones" to marry you! I promise you won't regret choosing them!

Here's a copy of a thank you letter we sent to our reverends, who were beyond amazing!

Dear Revs. Elisheva & Wade,

You all are the most amazing people ever! We are so happy we decided to get married now because we got to meet you both! You all crafted the most beautiful, most amazing, most personal ceremony, and it is forever engraved in our hearts.

The whole ceremony was just so breathtaking and wonderful. Everything you said rang true to the core of who we are and resonated so deeply with us! I know that is because you all put so much time and thought and effort and energy into crafting such a beautiful ceremony that spoke to everyone in attendance.

Elisheva, you were so sweet to have performed it even when you weren't feeling well. We can't thank you enough for being there.

Seriously, we have no words to describe how beautiful and deeply spiritual everything was. It was so "Alex & Kate"-y, like you put the very essence of us into the ceremony. What a wonderful sacred and special way to begin our marriage.

I absolutelt echo all the other reviews. Elisheva and Clegg really get personal and make every wedding absolutely distinct. My husbands family wasn't too thrilled when they found out we were getting married outside the catholic church so I thought I would hear some negative comments about the ceremony... not a single word! All I heard was how eloquent Elisheva is and how captivated they were throughout the whole ceremony. Wade wrote a beautiful service and all of my guests were thrilled. When asking people what they thought of the wedding weeks later I keep hearing about how wonderful the Reverend was and how personal the service was. There was not a dry eye in the house! I am so thankful for how hard they worked to make this so special for us. They were even quick to add changes that we made last minute. Thank you for everything!

We are so fortunate to have found Reverends Elisheva and T. Wade Clegg! They are warm, loving, and non-judgmental, with great sense of humor as well as deepest interest in getting things right. We all spent many hours planning, discussing, drafting, writing, and editing to create our own perfect ceremony. Our biggest concern was that our guests come from a wide range of spiritual and religious backgrounds from devout Catholic to complete agnostic; despite this, so many of them complemented our beautiful service, and many mentioned feeling that they knew us better after witnessing it. This was no small feat considering that we have known all of our guests for years. We really couldn’t have had a more positive and memorable experience.

Hiring Reverend Elisheva to perform our wedding ceremony was the absolute best decision we made in the wedding planning process. We couldn't have been more pleased with her services. She went so far above and beyond a typical officiant's services with her thoughtfulness and other actions taken throughout our engagement and wedding day. We've had numerous attendees tell us it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever seen. Neither my husband or I are religious and Reverend Elisheva truly listened to what we wanted in our ceremony and delivered above our expectations. Definitely, a ceremony for us to cherish always!

Elisheva made our wedding ceremony not only a beautiful (and fun) event, but she tailored it to who we are and what we believe in. It truly became a reflection of our inner selves and families -- rather than some "off the shelf" preset ceremony! And beyond that, Elisheva and her husband (and helper) Wade became close friends whose love and support we cherish every day. We could not have asked for more.

If you want a ceremony just like everyone else's...look somewhere else. If you want a ceremony that's unique, intimate and true to who you are...call Elisheva now!

They provided my husband and I with an amazing ceremony. We filled out a questionnaire and they turned it into an event to remember. It was personable and extremely truthful and meaningful to us as a couple. It spoke to both our wants and desires. Thank you for your advice and kind words. The book that you provided was a gift I would have never thought about but is the most important gift of all. It is a daily gut check and reminder of our love and commitment for each other.

The Revs went above and beyond to make sure we had the wedding we envisioned. We had a destination wedding and choosing someone we hadn't previously known to marry us was quite difficult for us, until we found them. We appreciated that they personalized our wedding to fit us, with such a thoughtful, meaningful ceremony. We communicated mainly through emails and loved getting to know them, and we wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to marry us.
