Frequently asked questions

How do we obtain our marriage license?


If your ceremony is taking place in the state of North Carolina, then your license must be obtained from a NC Register of Deeds. You can go to any Register of Deeds in the state, and both parties need to bring a valid photo identification and Social Security Cards.The cost of a marriage license is $60, plus $10 for your certificate (which is usually mailed to you once your license has been filed by me). All of these details will be covered in depth in your welcome email :)




What do we need to bring?


You must bring your marriage license. Oh and don't forget your rings! Other than that, feel free to bring any other items that you want to be present or that are being incorporated into your ceremony.




What other services do you provide?


In addition to officiating weddings, I also help couples write their vows in one-to-one coaching sessions, as well as hold space for other life events, such as baby-namings, new home blessings, and memorial services. I also love offering "Day-Of Yoga" as an awesome to get grounded before the big moment. If you're looking for the other vendor elements for your elopement or wedding, I have many amazing connections to wedding planners, videographers, and photographers, and I'm happy to connect you with them upon request!
