Wedding Officiants

Kenna Covington

(919) 608-3152

Something I have heard over and over is that people were upset that their wedding officiant used their wedding as a sermon or a political call to action. This will not happen with me, my job is to be a professional facilitator of your wedding ceremony. Your marriage and love are the focus and there is no soap box I would ever stand on to try to outshine your moment. This is your time and you will think back on it for decades, I would never be so greedy as to take this day from you for personal agendas. Please, please know this.
