After all, out of everything that goes to make up your wedding day, it will be the ceremony that you will remember most! For those couples who want an Officiant to have their ceremony be the expression of their love together, we ARE those Officiants.

We assist all couples with their wedding ceremony — whether they are Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, any other faith, or no particular faith. As Officiants, we create a beautiful custom designed TRADITIONAL CEREMONY for you including any traditions and rituals you want in your wedding ceremony. We write and craft the language of the ceremony script to which you can add your own vows. Together, we create a marriage ceremony script that reflects the love you have with each other. Traditional Ceremony options available are music, readings, Communion, Mass, Unity Candle, Sand Ceremony, Letter & Wine Blending Ceremony, etc.

wedding officiantsThe words we choose, the tone we use, the gestures we make, the looks, the humor, and most importantly the timing that we, as Officiants, have when expressing these things throughout a wedding, will make or break a ceremony. As Officiants, we use our talents to take ordinary wedding language and turn it into “the extraordinary ceremony” and create a couple’s special moment. In the long run, it is priceless! MEN IN BLACK are creative Officiants who preside over wonderful ceremonies.

As experienced wedding Officiants who were actually Ordained in person {and NOT on the Internet} and after 10 years of Seminary studies, we respect all religions and spiritual traditions. Rev. Carroll is an excellent Officiant, interesting speaker, and ceremony celebrant. He is smart, witty and serious and makes the ceremony a celebration of you!

Do you want to write your own vows or say something to each other during the ceremony? You are welcome to. You can even craft/write your own ceremony script and/or add anything special to your ceremony script if you like. We can send you many sample ceremonies as guides for you to customize your own ceremony. This is a wonderful and inclusive process where you want to have your guests to remember your special wedding day. Have an Officiant who can make it all so special for you and your family, friends, and guests. We give to you the ceremony script book after your Ceremony as a keepsake. We instruct you how to obtain your marriage license. We complete and file for you your marriage documents to make it legal and registered with the State.

In summary, not many Officiants can accomplish all this, and perform a wedding ceremony with the detailed attention needed in an extraordinary way. It takes decades of experience to learn to be a creative Officiant. This two men approach works well in making sure that all details are covered so that your wedding ceremony is over the top. What the MEN IN BLACK do is way beyond just the legal marriage contract. We hope you choose the MEN IN BLACK to perform your wedding ceremony on your BIG DAY!

Rev. Carroll was a Commissioned Military Officer Chaplain for many years. We do not impose our religious beliefs or traditions on anyone. MEN IN BLACK has Officiated at Christian, Catholic, Hindu, Muslim, Jewish, Atheist, and for non-religious or non-church goer ceremonies as well.
