Dream A Little Dream Wedding Officiant
Kimberly Farmer is one of the most in demand wedding officiants from Charlottesville VA to Washington DC region and beyond. Couples book her services as much as 2 years in advance and rave about her warm and sincere ceremony style. Kim is never a stranger to her clients, forming bonds of friendship with her couples that last long after the wedding. When Kim agreed to set aside a day in her busy schedule to participate in a wedding give away at The Pavilion on Lakeland Farm, we were shocked and thrilled. We wanted to make sure our winning couple would have a good officiant and what we were able to provide was one of the best in the industry! Every vendor at a wedding has a vital role in the overall success of the wedding but truth be told, a marriage does not begin without the officiant. Kim has married hundreds of couples in front of thousands of witnesses. She is truly an expert in her field and we are forever thankful that she helped our winning couple have an incredible wedding.
A few nerdy facts about wedding officiants.
- Legitimate professional officiants are actually very hard to find, you may find lists of officiants at the courthouse but many do not have websites, or social media pages, many have no online presence reducing the accountability and dependability. If your officiant has no online presence how do you know what level of professionalism they have in their work history, how do you review them? I don’t care how long you have been in the wedding industry or any industry, if you do not have strong business ability you can’t guarantee to provide excellent service. Every business you hire should have a website and/or social media presence so that you can do some research and see their work history. FYI Kimberly Kelly has a business background & wedding work history profile on VAWENetwork.com. She has total confidence in her services and welcomes couples to view her work history.
- I get about 150 calls, emails each year from frantic couples looking for an officiant and all the professional officiants are booked up. Do yourself a favor, book your officiant immediately after booking your venue.
- Many couples wait to hire an officiant thinking they will just get their friend or family member to become ordained online and they will officiate the wedding. Online ordination is NOT recognized in VA. Here is a link we found from NBC12.com, http://www.nbc12.com/story/28611795/on-your-side-alert-online-ordination-not-recognized-in-va
- Many couples do not think about how vital this role is at your wedding. Realistically the only thing a couple must have to get married is the license and the officiant. My best advice, as a self proclaimed wedding nerd is to put far more value in your officiant, once the couple makes it down the aisle all eyes are on the couple and the officiant. You must have complete confidence the person standing there understands who you are and CAN EASILY convey that message!
