Your big day is coming. There is so much to prepare and arrange. One thing you can cross off your list is hiring a professional Officiant for your perfect wedding because you've just found her - Karen D. Hill.
Karen has enjoyed being in matrimonial unity for over 28 years. You can rest assured that your wedding is in good hands with Karen there to lend a hand in finalizing your vows including planning the inclusion of ceremonial tokens of love like unity candles, 5th year anniversary time capsule exchange, religious or non-religious exchanges of love and custom vow exchanges if you have custom vows.
While money is important to everyone, our officiant services are professionally administered and lovingly performed with great attention to detail at a lower cost than most officiant charges in the Central North Carolina Area. You will have the full, vibrant, touching ceremony that you want and we are honored to provide you with some wedding budget savings that can go toward starting your new home.
For the entire planning and staging meeting, face- to-face, along with
telephone and e-mail consultation and support, the
service ceremony is $189 plus travel expenses which
are calculated at the standard IRS rate of 0.565 per
mile there and back. Travel fees within Franklin County,
N. C. do not apply unless it is 15 miles or more from
If you require Ms. Hill to be present for a rehearsal of the ceremony on a day separate from the wedding date, the Rehearsal Fee is $100.00
In order for your special date to be placed into
our calendar, a deposit of 50% of your total officiant
fee is needed and we will make sure your date and
time is reserved just for you two! When the wedding
day comes, we roll the deposit into the total balance
due. For instance, if you want a wedding ceremony
with a day-before rehearsal, the total is $400. You
send in your $200 deposit to secure your date and
time, and a balance due of $200 would be due by the
day of the wedding before the ceremony (this example
does not address any travel fees that may be due).

vows, religious or non-religious, and Rev. Hill will
