Wedding on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Chestoa Overlook. - An Eventective User from King, NC

We had two of our family ministers tell us they couldn't officiate our wedding due to scheduling conflicts. My mother sent us the Link to Dr Edwards. She, and her husband Bill, was Awesome. They both traveled over and hour to our home to meet with us. She did not have to do that. We made the application for or marriage license and she handled the rest. Our Marriage License and laminated vows were waiting on us when we got home from our honeymoon. Dr Edwards, helped us pick out our vows. Couldn't have asked for better!

Our Dream Wedding! - An Eventective User

I contacted Camille while I was pregnant. I had been looking for such a long time and couldn’t find anyone with as many reviews as her or anyone who showed up on as many websites as she did. I contacted her through her Facebook page and she got back to me within the night! She took so many steps in figuring out exactly what type of wedding we wanted. We had a very small, immediate family and friends, wedding in a chapel in Banner Elk. It was PERFECT. She met with us about a month before our wedding to go over exactly what she had put together from the vows and other things we had picked out for the ceremony. Her and her husband are WONDERFUL. We clicked with them and their personalities right off the bat. Camille was there with us through my pregnancy, birth of my son and our wedding. She always checked in and made sure we were comfortable with everything she had picked out for us and always asked if we wanted to add/change anything. I couldn’t imagine my wedding have been with anyone else! She is the sweetest soul. Our family and friends loved her. The ceremony was beautiful. She set everything up for us and we didn’t have to worry about a thing! I could say a million wonderful things about Camille and her husband, and I gladly would. Bottom line, if you are in the area and need someone to marry you, PLEASE at least reach out to Camille! She will make sure you have everything you could want and need for your wedding. No detail is left alone. She is professional, timely in getting information to you and is always willing to help with any questions or concerns. We are extremely lucky to have had Camille as our officiant. Our wedding day was perfect because of her! Cheers!

Wonderful Officiant! - An Eventective User from Johns Island, SC

Reverend Edwards was a joy to work with! She was very accommodating of a tight schedule and worked with us every step of the way. We were in a bind because we had been planning the wedding and then I received a promotion and we had to put the wedding planning on hold while we attempted to sell or house and move to a new city. Two months before the wedding I reached out to Reverend Edwards to see if she could perform our ceremony and right away she was amazingly helpful. She drafted a beautiful script, listening to our wishes, as well as our parents wishes. We met a few days before the ceremony to walk things through and her calm demeanor really put us both at ease. On the day of the ceremony she arrived early, even helping to set things up! She was very caring and professional throughout the entire event and I couldn't have asked for a better person to have performed our wedding!

Amazing Timing - An Eventective User from Valle Crucis, NC

Reverend Camille was wonderful! We notified her through a wedding service, she got back to us within 10 minutes. She set up our entire elopement and it was absolutely stunning! She was very professional, warm and compassionate. She made us feel very comfortable immediately. She even gathered witnesses for us. Reverend Camille, thank you for everything.

Absolutely Amazing - An Eventective User from Hays, NC

Reverend Camille was absolutely amazing! We wanted something simple, but special. She emailed us several ideas, which walked us through the entire ceremony. We were able to choose what we wanted her to say and then everything she added on her own made the ceremony very special. She also asked some very important questions up front so she could give us the best ceremony. She made it so easy for us and she was so warm. Everything she said during the ceremony was so meaningful and heartfelt. We really felt like she was part of the family right when we met her. She came to the cabin where we were staying, surrounded by our family. She made it perfect! I would absolutely refer her to everyone and we loved our ceremony!

Exceeded Expectations - An Eventective User from Blacksburg, VA

Camille was extremely professional in all of our conversations in preparation for our wedding. She was very accommodating with our selection of readings, and when we asked her to provide an anecdotal reading about love, she truly exceeded our expectations. Many of our guests commended her on an excellent job and appreciated the genuine nature of her as an officiant. We would recommend her highly to anyone.

Compassionate and Warm - An Eventective User from Hays, NC

Thank you so much for conducting the wedding ceremony for my daughter, Carrie and her now husband, Michael. The vows were beautifully presented and the way you officiated the ceremony was filled with compassion and warmth for this young couple about to start their lives together. You made a stressful day less stressful. Thank you again, for making this day so special for them.

  • Special Features: Now doing elopement weddings in my downtown location. See details in description. Still have a dream-like wedding during these trying times by a real minister -- not some cold sterile town hall setting. I wear my official robes.
