  • Virginia was an absolute pleasure to work with! Virginia created a custom ceremony for us and worked hard to ensure every detail of our ceremony was perfect. She was very easy to communicate with and helped us create a personalized ceremony based on what we both wanted. I couldn't say better things about Virginia! 10/10 recommend

  • Virginia is amazing. We were set on our date and then the COVID pandemic hit the United States. She worked with us to keep our date and our choices during the ceremony and still follow social distancing guidelines. Not only that, but it ended up raining that day and she worked to change our venue that very morning. She made our day beautiful, meaningful, and special. We could not have been happier with our experience with Virginia. The care, attention, and flexibility she showed us was above and beyond our expectations.

  • My husband and I had very specific ideas about what we wanted our wedding ceremony to be. It was a second marriage for us both and instead of the "pomp and circumstance," we wanted a ceremony that showcased our love and commitment to one another and to our family. Virginia provided inspiration and advice and listened to our requests. She was so easy to work with and an absolute delight to be around. We can't thank her enough for helping make our wedding absolutely perfect!

  • From the first time we contacted her, my husband and I were impressed by how sincere, helpful, and thoughtful Virginia Moore was. Virginia helped us plan a personalized elopement ceremony with our immediate family members present at a location that we selected. During the planning stage, she was quick to respond via phone and email, and she was more than accommodating when we had special requests for our elopement. She offered an extensive list of beautiful vow and reading suggestions, and was supportive and encouraging when we chose to write our own vows. My husband and I both have teenaged sons and Virginia incorporated them into our ceremony with a meaningful reading about blended families. We could not be more pleased with the meticulous attention to detail and the sincerity with which Virginia officiated our elopement!

  • Virginia has an amazing talent when it comes to personalized ceremonies. From the moment we showed interest in her service she was fun and outgoing and gave us a ton of great advice as a couple. We were unable to meet in person before the rehearsal, however she was quick to respond and answer phone calls. When we finally met her at the rehearsal, it felt like we had known her for years. Virginia is one of a kind and extremely personable. Thanks to her we had a beautiful ceremony that we will never forget.

  • Virginia made our ceremony and words come alive. She made sure the process flowed smoothly from start to finish. She’s serious about deadlines and was fantastic at making sure that my husband and I provided the proper information before the ceremony so that she could write a wonderful script. Virginia will cater your ceremony according to your needs. She suggested the earth blending ceremony for our wedding and we loved it. I also appreciated her humor and efficiency during the rehearsal. It’s not easy coordinating that many people, but she made it look easy. It was an honor to have her be a part of our special day!

  • Amazing. Virginia worked with us extensively on creating a perfect, romantic and personal ceremony that we wanted, and included her own personal touches. Professional and detailed, with attention to little details that made our ceremony memorable and touching.

  • We had a small elopement ceremony about a half hour outside of Charlottesville, VA. Virginia was very responsive beforehand and added many personal touches that made the ceremony perfect for us. I felt like she "got it" and the focus was just right. She was warm, welcoming, and had the kind of presence that made everyone feel at ease. It was a magical day and Virginia was a huge part in making it that way.

  • Virginia made the entire process of planning and detailing our wedding incredibly easy. As our officiant, she did an incredible job making sure that she was the right fit for us, and then offering us an incredible amount of options and information so that we could tailor our experience in a way that was meaningful and specific to us. Virginia showed exceptional professionalism in communication with us, and was always open to feedback on what she could do to make things better for us. Due to her long history of officiating weddings in the area, she was an invaluable resource for information that my husband and I were able to utilize to make planning our wedding easier. To top it all off, she was incredible personable with our family and friends at the ceremony itself and helped draw everyone in that much more. I highly recommend Virginia as someone to look into when searching for an officiant.

  • My wife and I had no idea how to begin to plan a wedding ceremony, so Virginia was perfect. She knew exactly how to construct a ceremony that was customized to us. We met with her in town and she took the time to get to know us and understand what we were looking for. She then took our answers to questions about our relationship and crafted a custom message for our ceremony. We wanted a secular, yet meaningful service and she delivered. If you are looking for a wedding ceremony that is more than just vows and rings, then Virginia is perfect! She also took all of our input and made edits to what she wrote. We had 100% control over the ceremony and it was performed in a loving, professional, enjoyable way. We highly recommend her!

    Thank you so much Megan and Christina. It was a beautiful ceremony and I will remember always. Wishing you the very happiest of lives together, Virginia

  • When we had our first phone call with Virginia, she brought tears to our eyes describing how she would do our ceremony. We were so moved by her thoughtful ceremony idea that seemed so personal, even though we had just met. Over the next few months, she wove our personal stories into a highly personalized ceremony and the final product amazed our guests. So many people complemented it at the reception. We both come from religious families but are now secular. We wanted all the gravity of a religious ceremony which fit our secular beliefs. Virginia accomplished this beautifully and made our families laugh, cry, and fall in love with our love story.

  • Definitely not worth the price we paid. The entire ceremony was not what we asked for and the vows were not what we chose at all. This isn't that surprising though since she couldn't remember one conversation to the next that we had. Atleast 10 of our guests spoke about how rude she was to everyone while we were finishing setting up, which is highly embarrassing. The amount we had to pay her for such a small ceremony, the least she could've done is given us the last few minutes to prepare. To top this off, she dressed like she was a character in a Stephen King novel. I wish I could get my money back.

    I am so sorry that weren't happy. When I agreed to preside over your ceremony it was outdoors. It was changed to a small venue and very few people were wearing masks and there was no room to social distance. If I came across rude it was due to my not feeling safe at all. When I arrived you had barely started setting up and the 5:00 ceremony was held at 5:25. The clothes I wore was my usual outfit with a big brim hat fitted with a plastic shield for protection that most of my coupes find ingenious. The vows were what you wanted with a very minor change so as to incorporate the expression of intent with the vows. I think we came to this ceremony from very different places but since I aim to please I am refunding all but $50.00 for my travel. Wishing you and Chris all the happiness life can bring. Virginia
