My passion to make a difference in the lives of others has always been the driving force in my life and has led me on different career paths, yet all had the same goal - to be of service and of value to others.
I became a wedding officiant in 2017 for several reasons, one of which was to help ALL couples marry the person they love since the 2015 U.S. Supreme Court decision recognized same-sex marriages. Couples were having difficulty finding officiants to perform their ceremonies and it created a very strong desire in me to help. So I researched my options of becoming a wedding officiant and I discovered South Carolina is one of two states that allow a Notary Public to legally perform marriage ceremonies.
I also became a Universal Life Church ordained minister as the church's mission mirrors my own mission of "do that which is right. " The church's principle belief that "we are all children of the same universe" is also my firm belief.
So after becoming a SC Notary Public and a ULC ordained minister, I opened Simply Marry Us for ALL couples who want an affordable option to become a married couple! And the response from couples has been wonderful! I feel truly honored every time I am chosen to help a couple begin their married life together.
