Whether your renewal ceremony is an intimate gathering or a grand gala, I will ensure your ceremony is extraordinary, giving you that perfect day.
I am a full service Wedding Officiant based in the Baltimore, MD area. While I service primarily the DMV and PA areas, I have been fortunate to celebrate with couples up and down the east coast. I pride myself in providing couples with customized, personal wedding ceremonies, while honoring the unique and individual wishes of each couple. I will ensure your wedding ceremony is inspiring, extraordinary, and unforgettable.
In addition to officiating weddings, I am a full-time nurse, practicing for over 20 years. I enjoy gardening, hiking, traveling, dance parties in my family room, laughing with family and friends over wine, and spending time with my best friend Haley, my chocolate lab.
Stacey came recommended by our wedding venue, River's Edge at Long Level, so we went with her sight unseen and we could not have been happier! From the very beginning she was very responsive, helped us walk though the whole pre-wedding process, from schedule, procession, ceremony content & vows. We had a very relaxed Q&A session with her where we covered what we wanted in the ceremony. Stacey made us feel so comfortable expressing the type and extent of religious input we wanted, how to involve the family, and how to balance tradition with what we wanted for our special moment. On our wedding weekend, she helped us with an excellent rehearsal. She also took care of all the license paperwork. We received loads of compliments on how lovely our service was. Overall, we could not have been happier with Stacey's services and would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant.

Stacey was amazing! My husband & I felt so comfortable with her & she did an incredible job with everything. It was really nice to be able to collaborate on the vows & send her poems/readings we wanted to include and have her turn it into a beautiful ceremony. She helped to keep us organized & made sure the ceremony went as smoothly as possible. We chose her because her reviews were really good & she was honestly just as amazing as everyone says! Everyone came up to us after the ceremony and mentioned how good of a job Stacey did and how lovely the vows were. We can't thank her enough for helping make our special day as incredible as it was. You're the best Stacey!

We decided to have a secret elopement before our formal wedding- actually one year to the day. It was put together in about a month and we needed to find an officiant. Stacey was perfect! From the first Zoom call to meeting in person. She personalized our very untraditional ceremony so that it felt like she's known us forever. I highly recommend hiring Stacey for your wedding :)

Stacey performed our ceremony and did an amazing job! She was very friendly, personable, and professional. Great attitude and lots of charisma! She took charge at our rehearsal, making sure things went exactly the way we wanted. I felt comfort in knowing all the details were thought of. Our secular ceremony went swimmingly. It was very sweet and personalized to our story with a few laughs thrown in! Stacey was absolutely perfect!
Lindsay & Adam
As soon as we met Stacey, we knew she was the perfect fit! Without religious or family traditions to guide us, we weren't sure where to start, but Stacey took care of everything and eased our concerns immediately! Stacey took care to understand out story and created a thoughtful ceremony tailored to us highlighting all the elements we wanted. Not only did she attend the rehearsal, but also took care of all the logistics of our marriage license. She even had tissues when I needed them! We had multiple friends and family complement the ceremony specifically that Stacey was thoughtful, warm, funny, and sincere. I am thankful that Stacey officiated our wedding. Because of her, it was truly perfect!

Thank you so much Stacey! Bobby and I can't thank you enough for everything! We both enjoyed your ceremony. You described Bobby and me perfectly! You are most definitely going to be highly recommended! Again, thank you so so much.
Stacey put the most amount of precision and effort into officiating our ceremony. She included many fun details about us and made it feel very personable, which was our goal. She felt like a friend to my husband and me. I can't say enough good things about her!

My husband and I were married on September 19, 2020 by Stacey, a close family friend. She was very understanding and flexible with all the changes that were made due to COVID19. Stacey listened to all of our hopes and dreams for our big day. She could not have been any better with communicating with us and helping us bring our story to life for our friends and family. Stacey was knowledgeable and presented us with lots of ideas and suggestions which was very helpful! We will always recommend Stacey; she is a 10/10!
Stacey was everything we were looking for in a wedding officiant! I spoke with several other officiants and she instantly captured me with her warmth and engaging spirit. We were looking to convey the story of our love to our family & friends and Stacey delivered it beautifully. We received so many compliments on her ceremony saying that they felt like they were part of our story. She came to our rehearsal the night before, walked everyone through the details which was so reassuring. She was extremely professional in her communication and followed up quickly. I so appreciated that she spent well over an hour with us to talk through our story and learn more about my fiance and me. She offered several options regarding what we wanted to include and didn't want to include and sent our script the week beforehand to review and make any changes (we had none!). She made us feel so comfortable on our wedding day and made us feel so special. I would highly recommend Stacey to anyone who is looking for a non-denominational ceremony that is full of warmth, positive spirit, and great energy.

Stacey made us both feel that we were the only couple getting married this year. She answered many questions for us and help guide our way. She spent many hours interviewing us to get to know us better as a couple. Because of COVID, I was unable to meet her in person until our wedding weekend. When I met here, I knew we had made the right choice. Stacey went above and beyond for us, as she does for all of her couples. She made our ceremony personal, took the time to meet with our venue coordinator, and made sure the ceremony was perfect. We had many compliments on our wedding and the biggest one being the ceremony. People kept raving about the ceremony. Stacey is a special, caring person and am I am so pleased she officiated our ceremony.
Stacey was absolutely fabulous! When we met Stacey we knew she would be the right person to conduct our wedding ceremony. She took a keen interest in us and our relationship, which really came through in the ceremony. After our ceremony, all of the guests commented on what a great job she did!
Brynne & Matt
Stacey was a pleasure to work with leading up to our ceremony. She was kind, flexible, attentive, and organized; all of which made a world of difference. Her final work for the ceremony was amazing-it was beyond eloquent and reflective of everything we asked for. I could not recommend working with her more highly.
Madeleine & Johnny
Simply put; Stacey was amazing! She checked every box. Stacey took the time to get to know us and provided an incredibly personal ceremony that told our story but kept it light, happy, and had everyone laughing. It was like a family friend of years officiated our wedding. Stacey even took steps to help keep us organized for day of and provided advice and information where needed. Thank you Stacey, for providing a beautiful ceremony and helping to make our day perfect!!
Alexandria & Curtis
Stacey was absolutely wonderful to work with! My husband and I had a clear vision as to what we wanted our ceremony to be and she helped us make that vision come to life. One of things we heard from our guests after the wedding was how much they loved how personal our ceremony felt. From the planning process to the wedding, Stacey was amazing to work with and definitely kept us laughing through the process. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for an officiant!
Meagan & Kevin
We can't say enough about Stacey! We live in CA and travelled to MD for our wedding. We found Stacey based on her stellar reviews and she did not disappoint. At our initial Zoom meeting we felt an instant connection. Throughout the process, she was communicative & responsive. When our big day arrived, Stacey conducted a beautiful ceremony. Numerous guests commented on great the ceremony was. We recommend Stacey 100%!
Michael & Amber
We couldn't recommend Stacey more highly to officiate your wedding! The service she crafted was personal, eloquent, and touching. And she's great to work with! Anything goes and she's very accommodating to make your ceremony "yours"
Michelle & Nick
My husband and I hired Stacey to be our officiant for our August 27, 2022 wedding. From the beginning we felt we had a great connection with Stacey. She was very personable and made all of our phone calls fun and relaxed. The day of our wedding, she had not only us laughing but all of our family and friends as she told our story. It was amazing! She was responsive to emails & text messages and helped to keep us organized leading up to our big day. She was very accommodating and created two scripts when we told her about a few bumps in the road that affected our ceremony. I have a foreign background so it was super important for me to find an officiant who would learn about and add my wedding traditions into the ceremony. Stacey was absolutely perfect. She went above and beyond, learning about my traditions, making sure she was pronouncing the words correctly! We had a very special day and thanks to Stacey it was even better. I highly recommend her to be your officiant!!
Julia & Spencer
Stacey was great! We got married on April 22, 2023. When we met with Stacey, she was very down to earth. After talking with her my fiance and I knew our personalities would be heard by Stacey. She answered our emails quickly, showed up when she needed to, and was helpful & accommodating. Her pricing was affordable. We would recommend her to anyone wanting a personalized ceremony.
Lindsay & Craig
Stacey was so great to work with. She made us feel so comfortable and laid out exactly what we could expect from her as we approached our wedding. Our ceremony was so personal to us and that is because of Stacey's beautiful writing. We received so many compliments from our guests about our ceremony and vows. I would recommend her to anyone.
Michelle & Evan
Stacey helped make our wedding absolutely perfect! She listened to our story, worked with us to have the perfect vows, and had great ideas for the ceremony. She is a class act and we highly recommend her!
