My name is Ginny Carson.  I am an ordained non-denominational minister licensed by the state of Maryland to officiate at weddings.  I am not just an officiant who says some words at your wedding, but someone who truly wants you to have your personal values and beliefs reflected for all to see on your special day.  Originally born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, for the past thirty years I have resided in Columbia. I am a happy self-actualized person, the mother of two grown children and four grandchildren all of whom I am very proud. 


I have taken many paths throughout my lifetime beginning as a nursing student, moving on into the business arena, then to Therapeutic Recreation and finally as a college administrator.  All of these endeavors have given me the opportunity to work and collaborate with a diverse population.  Whatever your age, gender, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, disability or nationality might be I see you first as a human being with real needs and wants and desires.


As a minister I am here to provide a service that meets your needs.  I received my ordination through the Church of Spiritual Humanism.  Natural Spiritual Humanism simply put is an understanding that there exists a single, natural physical world or universe in which we are completely included.  It is a belief based on spirituality, nature and our ability as human beings to solve the problems of society using logic, science and social consciousness.  My intent is to provide services for people who are spiritual but not necessarily religious.  Most of my clients choose me because my spiritual values align with theirs.  They want a non-religious ceremony celebrating their own personal values.  I love working with all people and honor and respect whatever belief system you may wish to incorporate into your ceremony.  Unlike many other officiates, I schedule only one ceremony a day so that my couples will have my undivided attention and efforts.


Communication is the glue that impacts both human behavior and personal psychological consequences.  My role is to assist you in that communication process whether you are planning a wedding, vow renewal, or commitment ceremony.  During this time decisions need to be made that will truly reflect your needs and desires.  Together we can create ceremonies and celebrations that will be memorable expressions of your values and beliefs.


Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
