Silentlight Ministers officiate in the DC metropolitan area, Maryland, Northern Virginia and the Panhandle of West Virginia. With these words I thee wed: wedding vows for today's couples; vows for all ages and marital backgrounds; religious and secular vows; renewal of vows; and commitment cermonies for life partners.

Silentlight Ministers create individual wedding vows for the bride and groom who do not belong to a church, synagogue or other religious organization; who would like a personalized ceremony; who are of different faiths and prefer a neutral officiant with spiritual values incorporated into the ceremony; who desire a non-religious ceremony, but do not want a civil ceremony; or who choose the ceremony and reception to be held at a banquet facility, out of doors or at home.

My husband and I had such a positive experience with Silent Light Ministries. From the beginning, Rev. Caryl was a pleasure to work with. We had a meeting with her several months before our ceremony where we discussed some ideas and wording choices. She is just such an enjoyable person to talk to. We knew we wanted something in our ceremony that was tangible, and she had some great ideas that were so much more than your typical unity candle/sand. She then sent us a draft almost right away with our ceremony script included. It was just wonderful. She really listened to what we wanted and ended up giving us the most beautiful and memorable ceremony I could imagine. I recommend Silent Light to everyone looking for an officiant. She truly is the best!

My husband and I could not have been happier with Reverend Swahn. From the moment we met her, she was kind, attentive, open minded and flexible. I was concerned about finding an officiate for our wedding as my husband is Christian but I am atheist. Reverend Swahn was simply lovely. She took the time to get to know both my husband and I before she wrote the first draft of the ceremony. We were also very involved in the editing process and all of our wishes were incorporated before the final version. On the wedding day she was attentive and calm soothing my nerves considerably. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone to make their day special.

I can't say enough about Reverend Caryl. She really is very attentive to you during the whole process. I felt like she wanted to make the ceremony fit our needs and be special to us. We had no idea where to start and she made it a breeze. She pushed us to do a reading which I'm so happy she did. But she was flexible when we didn't want to do certain things or wanted to change them slightly. I had a huge number of guests come up to me after the ceremony saying how much they loved the ceremony, how personal it was, and how much they liked Reverend Caryl. I also love that through many email exchanges she shared personal information about herself and the trips she was on. It made me feel like we were getting to know each other rather than her just providing a service. She has a great accent too! :) You really can't go wrong with getting her to handle your ceremony.

Silentlight Ministers (Caryl) was always our first choice to officiate our wedding. I knew she was perfect when I saw her officiate my cousin’s wedding. Our wedding planning process was filled with all the normal craziness of bringing together two families, but Caryl helped us stay focused on the our ceremony and our commitment.

Caryl met with to discuss our hopes for our wedding ceremony. My fiancé and I has a tall order for Caryl. We needed a ceremony that represented us (we’re agnostic) but didn't offend our religious families. We wanted something short and sweet, but meaningful and profound. We had special requests to honor our parents, involve the wedding attendees, and incorporate a whole gaggle of children in our wedding party. The ceremony development was an iterative process where we exchanged drafts back and forth to comment on edits and subtractions. She’s really wanted us to have a ceremony that best reflected our commitment. She really encouraged us to write our own vows, but we’re loved the traditional ones but we used a lot of unique readings to show our own flair.

Caryl was the most brilliant during our wedding. We had a traditional engagement the night before and our nerves were running high. She found us a quiet room to sit together and take breath before the festivities. On the day of our wedding, Caryl played double duty as a wedding planner. My mom and I thought we’d thought of everything, but inevitably on the day of there were several small details we’d forgotten (like where to put the speakers during the ceremony ) At this point, Caryl helped clear up everything that involved the wedding ceremony.

The ceremony went off without a hitch. It was beautiful and meaningful and brought many guests to tears. All our discussions beforehand made the ceremony pitch perfect. After all was said and done, she stayed and celebrated with us during our reception.

I can’t recommend Caryl enough.

Throughout the entire wedding planning process, the one thing that I really dreaded was finding someone to lead us through our wedding ceremony. Someone that would bring a spark to the ceremony, help us calm our nerves and really engage everyone during this monumental moment as we start our life together.

I wanted someone that complimented our lifestyle and the aesthetics of our wedding. Someone who spoke with enthusiasm and spunk.

We knew Caryl would fit the bill from the first time we met her. She was eager to learn about our love story, she listened to our ideas for our ceremony and helped us develop a script that spoke from our hearts. And most importantly, she never once made us feel like we were just another paycheck. A genuine soul that ensures you get what you want for your wedding day. I can't say enough about how wonderful she is!

Rev. Caryl was an excellent officiant and we highly recommend her. We met her about 5 months before our wedding and she was great in that she had a plan and explained to us how the process works to get your ceremony script completed, but gave us complete flexibility in what we wanted to include. She offered great ideas and left the final choices up to us. She was always very responsive and so kind when she sent us reminders which was great because as a busy bride you do forget to do things sometimes and it's nice to have kind and gentle reminders. She was extremely sweet and polite at the rehearsal and on the wedding day. She was always smiling and calm and things just seemed to run smoothly with her. Her prices were also a good value as they were a bit less than some others in the area.

Caryl was absolutely amazing! She made the ceremony just wonderful. We didn't have a chance to meet up before the wedding due to conflict in schedules but she did a fantastic job creating a perfect ceremony with conversation via email. She took all our requests and integrated them so perfectly into the ceremony. She was very sweet and very personable. She helped make our special day perfect! Guests were talking about how much of a lovely job she did the entire night. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for the perfect officiant for their special day!!

We recently got married in November and Rev. Caryl Jones-Swahn was our officiant. From the first time we met her we knew that she would make our wedding ceremony special and full of love. She really got to know us and was able to create a ceremony with those personal touches that made it perfect for us. Her beautiful British accent made it even more magical. Our wedding guests loved the ceremony and became instant fans of Rev. Caryl. She definitely knows what she is doing. We highly recommend her for your special event.
