Hello and Congratulations! Now take a deep breath and RELAX. This part of planning your wedding will be fun and stress-free. I have been working with couples for over 18 years, and have always heard afterward how unique and beautiful their ceremonies were. I am also a professional author and motivational speaker, so you can be sure that the words that I compose and deliver will be meaningful, memorable and unique.

“Do you want a ceremony that are reflects your faith tradition, something that’s spiritual but not overly religious, a secular/humanist ceremony, a little of each, or something in-between?” These are some of the first questions we will discuss when we first meet to explore what I call: “the most important day of your life.” Whether it’s a traditional, religious, interfaith or civil ceremony, I want your ceremony to reflect a personality and style that is uniquely your own.

That’s why the NEXT question is: “So, how did you all MEET!?”

Graduating from Sancta Sophia Seminary and earning a lifetime ordination through the International Council of Community Churches, I left my 25 year career in the Fashion Industry in 1998 to pursue my inspirational speaking career. It was after speaking at a church one Sunday that I found my real vocation/special niche when the publisher of a Bridal Magazine approached me to see if I would consider becoming a featured Wedding Officiant. The rest, as they say, is history!

Today, having performed close to 2700 ceremonies, I am now considered the #1 Wedding Officiant in the Southeast, recently receiving the BOW Award from the Wedding and Event Industry. I am the only Officiant to have ever won this honor. More on BOW here

My weddings have been featured on The Today Show and many local news channels, in magazines and on YouTube. I have performed ceremonies for the CEO of NASCAR, many of their drivers, the Carolina Panthers, News Anchors and more.

I am also regularly asked to contribute articles in magazines like Inspire, Carolina Bride and Charlotte Weddings and on many wedding blogs. Here is my article that I Do Weddings Consultants asked me to write for their blog: LINK

As a recent article stated:
"Her special flair for being able to make each ceremony unique to every couple’s style and relationship is what makes Rev. Rebecca’s ceremonies stand out above the rest. She has the rare ability to make it seem like she has known the couple for years – even if she has only met with them for a few hours! This ability to connect on a deep level is where the name for her wedding ministry actually came from, as one of her first brides told her, “you spoke from your heart when you did our ceremony – there wasn’t a dry eye in the house – you should call your ministry Weddings From The Heart!” And so, she took that advice to heart!

“My goal is to make each ceremony meaning and memorable,” says Rev. Rebecca, who also holds the titles of professional speaker and published author, being a member both the National Speaker’s Association and the International Women’s Writer’s Guild - designations which have to be earned. She is also the only Officiant who has ever been asked to sit on the board of the National Association of Catering Executives (Charlotte Chapter).

The crafting of your ceremony begins before you meet with Rev. Nagy with a few questions she emails to you to ponder that you will go over when you meet. Then she will go over other options for the ceremony – do you want a Commemorative Candle? A Unity Candle? Another ritual from your faith or culture? She also has numerous vow and reading ideas to help make the planning of your wedding as stress free as possible! And relax – you don’t have to memorize anything!

Every ceremony is customized or you can have a more personal ceremony by answering some additional questions such as how you met, what you think are important elements in making a good marriage, what were the qualities that drew you to one another, and other questions that will help her make you ceremony not only unique – but all about you. No cookie cutter ceremonies here!

“I think what has surprised me the most over the years has been the anniversary cards that I get from the couples that I have married the year before! They tell me how they have pulled out the copy of their ceremony that I had given them on their anniversary, and cried and/or laughed all over again while eating that frozen bit of wedding cake – and just had to let me know again how appreciative they were. That’s when I know that I had made some contribution to the start of their lives – and I feel so truly blessed. Wow!”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


If you want a ceremony that is truly all about you and your love – then give me a call today – you’ll be glad you did! Read less

Reverend Rebecca Nagy was not only one of our favorite vendors, but she became our friend. Her exuberant personality shined from the moment we met her. My partner and I were most nervous about finding an officiant who was happy, positive, and completely accepting of us and our special love that we shared. From the moment we sat down to get to know Rev Nagy, we fell head over heels and knew she was perfect for us! Moving forward and working with Rebecca was such a blast. She was so helpful in helping draft the ceremony and reviewing our vows (we wrote our own). She loved us and it showed with her smile, her excitement she displaced, and the love that shined through during our ceremony! We couldn't be more pleased with our ceremony and how beautiful it was! Our guest loved Rev. Rebecca Nagy, almost as much as we did and we would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone who values a beautifully written and spoken ceremony!

Reverend Nagy was very professional and has a vibrant personality. If I had met her at a party or someone's house without knowing her profession, we would have become friends. When we had our first meeting, she was wonderful, she asked all the right questions, and answered all of mine the way I wanted her to (and none of it was fake or just what I wanted to hear.) She is a very genuine person. I walked away knowing she was hired. She then send us the packet of proposed things we could use or say or do in our ceremony based on our discussion. We used 75% of it.....that's how well she read us. We didn't need some of the other items and we chose to right our own vows...that's the other 25%.

The ceremony was beautiful, everyone loved it, she was great.
She was a little late, but it wasn't her fault. The panthers had just won a playoff game that no-one knew or had any way of knowing they would be playing uptown minutes away from my venue and would finish right before my wedding started. She was caught in the traffic, but so were some of the guests....so it all worked out perfectly.

My daughter's officiant, Rev. Rebecca Nagy, exceeded our expectations! In addition to her beautiful words, she included family members and tailored the ceremony according to our family's customs and my daughter's wishes. She was light-hearted, full of love, and an inspiration to everyone who attended. It was a truly magical day!

Reverend Nagy was very amenable to what we wanted out of an officiant. She was willing to listen to how religious the ceremony was to be and offering several great suggestions on how we could make it perfect. She comes with several blessings and vows that you can take inspiration from. You can tell she really cares and enjoys what she does.

Rebecca was a wonderful officiant and it was such a pleasure working with her. The first time we met her she took the time to find out more about us and made us feel at ease. The ceremony that she put together was vey beautiful and she worked with us to come up with something that was in line with our beliefs and who we were.

Our guests enjoyed the ceremony and we had many good laughs.

Rebecca made our wedding ceremony wonderful! We really enjoyed meeting with her when we were searching for an officiant. She really took the time to get to know us as a couple. She tailored the ceremony to be exactly what we wanted, provided a copy of it before hand for review/changes, and had a lot of helpful tips on how to personalize the ceremony and make it run smoothly. I had a small wedding party so did not do a rehearsal, and there was no need! Rebecca showed up a little early and everything went perfectly. She even worked with the sound vendor. I would highly recommend her!
