If you're looking for something besides the same old cookie cutter ceremony, let me help. I specialize in custom ceremonies and vows to reflect the personalities and religious preferences of the bridal couple on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Whether large or small, religious, civil or same sex unions (not legal in NC) I do them all! Just give me an idea of what you're looking for and we'll make it happen.
"With so many schedules to consider, we were having a problem finding the perfect date for the ceremony, and then it occurred to us that the perfect time would be when we were all on vacation together on the Outer Banks, our favorite place to be! We mentioned our plans to our rental agent, and she put us in contact with Donna Rich. Donna was so helpful in coordinating the ceremony, from helping us choose the perfect location, to getting us all the information for the license procedure and providing us with suggestions for the vows. We were planning a very informal ceremony with just ourselves and all the children. As luck would have it, on the afternoon we chose for our ceremony, it was pouring rain! Donna kept in touch with us during that afternoon, and she very graciously offered to put the ceremony off until the next afternoon, when the weather was expected to be much better. We ended up with a beautiful sunset ceremony! We could not have tied all of this together without Donna's help!
Sincerely, Eric and Laura Rankin, married 8/13/10."
My husband and I of 14 years decided that we would like to renew our wedding vows while we were on vacation in Hatteras this year. I contacted Donna and she was happy to help! She was very responsive to our requests, and sent me some ideas to help us get started with writing our vows. She worked with us to ensure that we were able to have the ceremony that we were hoping for. When we arrived, we needed to change the date at the last minute- and luckily Donna understood, and helped us with that as well. We had a lovely, very personal ceremony on the beach at sunset. What a wonderful experience! Thanks Donna! Traci and Anthony Foster, vows renewed June 10th, 2011
"We recently had our wedding at the Outer Banks and the ceremony was preformed by Donna Rich. We could not have asked for a better Reverend. We made the decision to get married at the last minute and were very nervous that we wouldn't be able to get everything together in time. Donna was very reassuring and helpful via email because we live out of state. She told us everything we needed to get together before hand and also everything we needed to do once we were there. She even gave us ideas about where our ceremony site could be, as she lives very close to where we wanted to have it. As this was a last minute decision, we weren't sure if we would have the two witnesses required by law, so Donna offered to have her husband and other family members come and be there for us. We were also on a smaller budget and Donna was very reasonable price wise. In fact she offered more service then most of the others, but charged much less. I wouldn't change a thing about our wedding, it was absolutely prefect and it wouldn't have been possible with out Donna Rich and all of her help.
