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. ,

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

"I DO" [SIGNATURE]
CEREMONY ~ $150 [Travel Expenses May Apply]
This is a special Ceremony Package for the Bride and Groom ONLY. Many times
couples want to wait for their "official" ceremony until they can better afford it, or prefer to hold it later on
when all their family and friends can be present. In the meantime, though, they want to be legally married because they cherish
the gift of love they have in one another and want to make their commitment official. The "I DO" [Signature] Ceremony
is perfect in these situations and also beneficial in cases where, for financial reasons, it would be helpful to go ahead
and get married in order to help make the process of purchasing a home easier, or because health insurance would be less expensive

home, at a local park, or you may also choose to come to my countryside venue, which is located just outside Buckhannon, West
Virginia. I will say all the meaningful things that will make your marriage legal, do a short exchange of "I DO' vows
and you can be on your way with your own little secret to cherish until you decide you want to share it with the 'world".
Also, as a special thank you, if you book me to perform your "official" wedding, the cost of your ceremony package
will be reduced by the amount you paid for this one. "There is only one happiness in life; to love and be loved,"
(George Sand), and I would be honored to do this for you.

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.
