Stars is just not enough. It is said that God puts people in our path for a reason. And there most definitely
was a reason Pam was put into our path. We went through a few dilemmas in finding the perfect officiant for our wedding.
After the sudden death of a family friend who originally was to perform our ceremony and two other officiants backed out due
to scheduling conflicts, we were lost. I was more than hesitant to begin my search online. How were we going to choose
from the many listings of officiants we didn't know, and who did not know us???? As I surfed through listing after listing,
and website after website, I found myself repeatedly drawn back to Pam's information. First an email, then a phone conversation.
I immediately felt as comfortable as could be with Pam. We didn't want a "cookie cutter" wedding just like
any other. We were doing a lot of DIY's and putting our own style into our wedding. Pam gave us several wonderful
ideas that just suited us and matched perfectly with our vision of what we wanted our wedding to be. We chose to include
a dove release and wine box ceremony. With Pam's help we were able to create the perfect wedding. Pam Powers Moore
was the perfect officiant for us. We loved every aspect of our ceremony and will cherish those moments for as long as
we live. Every guest has told us just how beautiful, creative and unique they thought our ceremony was and what a wonderful
job Pam did. From the laughter we shared to the tears we shed, it was a priceless memory we will hold dearly forever."

the bride and groom, it is your special day and you are the stars of the show. But without an officiant, the show will not
go on. This is why it's so important that you take the time to find an officiant with whom you are completely comfortable,
someone who understands what kind of ceremony you want and what kind of language reflects who you are as a couple. It's also
critical that the officiant who helps you celebrate your union is someone who you are compatible with, someone who can guide
you through a stress-free journey of planning your ceremony and someone who can create a truly meaningful experience
for you, your family and everyone involved.
are getting married, celebrating an anniversary, or having a very special vow renewal, your hopes and dreams combined with
the way you envision your ceremony is at the very heart of it all. Your ceremony should express who you are as a couple and
how you view the commitment you are about to make. It should be as special as the love you share and your vows should
be a true reflection of the words only your heart can tell. As a Non-Denominational Minister and Wedding Officiant my
goal is to create a ceremony that celebrates the gift of love you are to one another while creating a treasured memory of inspiration, of
laughter, and total joy for the two of you. .
My hope is that, after our initial meeting (whether by phone, email or in person), we will connect in such a way
that you will know beyond a doubt that you have found the right match. Together we will create a ceremony that will
be everything you have dreamed it will be and one that does much more than accomplish a mission. I will work with you
to make your ceremony a total reflection of who you are, individually and as a couple. We
can incorporate special readings, family traditions, ceremonial add-ons, or anything you like that will make it
just as you want it to be. When finished it will be uniquely beautiful, completely meaningful and totally "yours". Your
ceremony will be one of a kind and you can rest assured that there will never be another one exactly like it.

about what I do. ,

NOTE: Every marriage must be solemnized under
a marriage license issued by a clerk of the city, burrough, county or state that the couple chooses to be married in, in
accordance with the provisions of the laws governing that particular state. If a ceremony of marriage is performed without
a license, the attempted marriage is void, and the parties do not attain the legal status of husband and wife. Therefore,
in order for your marriage to be legal, I must have your valid marriage license, in hand, prior to officiating

Many venues have dedicated Wedding
Coordinators who run Rehearsals for their couples; however, if yours does not, I would be more than happy to orchestrate one
for you. I am always on site an hour prior to the Ceremony and can do a complimentary walk through at that time. Or, if you
prefer to hold your Rehearsal the evening prior to your ceremony I can do your Rehearsal for an additional fee of $100. I

all packages requiring overnight stays due to a Rehearsal.

EBook Written by Pastor Pam - "Secrets to a Deeper Love" - $14.95
It has been said that a successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
The real act of marriage takes place in the heart. It's a choice that lasts long after our wedding day and should be
reflected in the way we treat and interact with our spouse. But, sometimes life gets in the way and it isn't always
easy to hold on to the same loving feelings we had when we said our "I do's". God cares deeply for all
of us and desires that our lives be full of peace, joy and contentment, free from all the pain and stress that the world sometimes
offers. Tough issues plague our society and bring pain to our lives which in turn can cause problems in our marriages, leaving
us in search of answers. This is the basis for my book "Secrets to a Deeper Love." I have an awareness of these issues
and it is my vision and passion to help others deal with them; not only in their lives, but in the lives of others with
whom they care deeply.
Photography by Abi Elle Imagery - Prices range from $500 (Elegance Collection) to $1,250
If you have not yet booked a Photographer to document your
Wedding, I invite you to consider Abi Elle Imagery. Having

Many couples have a family member perform this function; however, if you would like me to stay and give a blessing
before dinner, I would be absolutely honored!!! I consider it a blessing to be a part of your special day and to be
able to return thanks would be my sincere privilege.
Writing Service - Fee will be based on the Package chosen from the above offerings, minus travel
I often get calls from couples who
have asked a friend or family member to officiate their wedding, but many times the person chosen does not feel comfortable
writing the ceremony. If this is your case, and you would like your ceremony
to be personally written by an experienced professional, I would love to work with you. I will custom-write your personalized
ceremony to your specifications, send you a draft for editing and I won't be happy until it fits your desires and expectations
perfectly. Once you and your fiance approve your dream ceremony, I will finalize it and deliver it to you in a beautiful keepsake
binder, along with a copy in easy readable format for your Officiant to use on the day of your wedding. Don't settle for less
than your heart's desire. If I can help you, please don't hesitate to ask. Helping couples dreams come true is what I do and
I would love to work with you. You may contact me at (304) 472-0296 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: I often officiate
more than one ceremony per day and it is imperative that weddings begin promptly at the time they are scheduled.
When a ceremony starts late it not only cuts into the next couple's time, it makes traveling stressful as I drive to the
next destination. That being said, there will be a $50 per 15-minute late fee for weddings that do not start on time. This
fee is geared to protect my couples from being inconsiderate of one another and to allow me to do the best job possible in
providing each of my couples the great service they expect and deserve. If more than 15 minutes late I reserve the right
to cut out part of the ceremony to compensate for the time difference. I do everything within my power to make your
ceremony perfect and I want your wedding day to be a beautiful, memorable experience. Starting the wedding on schedule
helps that to happen. Thank you for your consideration and I appreciate your understanding.
The Couple gives permission and shall allow The Officiant
to post a photograph(s) of them with The Officiant (or any other photos taken by the Officiant or her Representative during
the wedding ceremony) on The Officiant’s website or other social media for viewing by the internet community.
The Couple acknowledges that this is for promotional purposes only and they do not expect to receive any compensation of any
kind. There shall be no expiration for this permission.
** I travel to various locations to perform marriage ceremonies so it is not feasible to set one standard
rate that includes travel. Therefore, mileage, as well as air and lodging (if required), will be added to the above
stated prices. Total cost will be discussed individually with each couple based upon your State and County requirements and
your wedding destination, "
time spent traveling to and from your venue location will be added to all packages.
Lodging costs will also be added if destination is beyond two hours driving distance
from home office in Buckhannon, West Virginia.
** Costs of air travel, if required, as well as round-trip
mileage from home office to Pittsburgh International Airport will be provided by the couple.
BOOKING AND REFUND POLICY:
all my own ceremonies and take great pride in the fact that each one is delivered with "heart" and "passion".
Booking is first come, first served and dates are held with a 50% NONREFUNDABLE deposit, the remainder
of which is due 30 days prior to the wedding day. Deposits are remitted and accepted in good faith, and from the moment of
initial booking, until the moment of "I do," my services are all about the couple and crafting a ceremony that mirrors
their thoughts, dreams, and emotions perfectly. If by chance a couple finds it necessary to change their ceremony date, that
couple may reschedule their wedding once, with all monies being fully transferrable to the new date, provided that the wedding
is held within two years of the original date, and my schedule permits me to officiate the ceremony at that time. Additional
rescheduling will incur a $150 rescheduling fee. After two reschedules, all monies paid will be forfeited and any further
reschedules will be treated as new bookings. Ceremonies booked within 30 days of the Wedding date will require payment in
full at the time of booking.
In the event I am sick, or unable to officiate a wedding due to circumstances
beyond my control, Abigail Layman, Sweet Song Ministries Team Member and Professional Wedding Officiant will be on site to
officiate on my behalf. Abby is a truly gifted professional and will totally knock it out of the park with her caring and
love for what she does..
