A note from Holly
With my professional training as a certified Celebrant, I am pleased to help couples create unique marriage ceremonies in Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and the surrounding areas of North Carolina. As your Celebrant and wedding officiant, I will work with you to develop your ideas and provide an authentic expression of your personal values, traditions, and beliefs. I am ordained as a non-denominational minister because I am interested in incorporating traditions and cultural influences that are meaningful to you, with original touches to make your wedding ceremony truly one-of-a-kind. If you are looking for an engaging and personal ceremony, please contact me.
Your day. Your way.
Holly Marion is an experienced, certified Celebrant who can help you create a wedding ceremony that is uniquely yours. Your wedding ceremony should be an intimate reflection of your personal journey. It should express the distinctive qualities and values you and your loved ones hold dear.
What is a Celebrant?
Celebrants are trained professionals who compose, officiate, and perform the highest quality personalized ceremonies for couples, individuals, and organizations. A Celebrant is knowledgeable about the traditions and cultures of a variety of religions and nationalities. Certified by the Celebrant Institute USA, Holly Marion has performed over 40 weddings with the greatest respect for the beliefs, lifestyles, and stories of her clients.

“The most frequent comment we got from our wedding guests was how beautiful and personalized our wedding ceremony was. Holly was amazing from beginning to end.
She was informed, well-read, calm, thoughtful, and reverent. During the ceremony itself, Holly's delivery struck the perfect balance between happiness (the audience did laugh once!) and reverence given the commitment before us. I couldn't have imagined someone more perfect to be part of our wedding day. I give Holly my highest recommendation.”

Holly holds a Master’s Degree in English from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. As a college teacher who moved into development work for colleges and non-profits, she has many years of leadership, public speaking, and event planning in her background.
Within a span of a few years, Holly experienced her daughter’s wedding, the deaths of her mother and mother-in-law, and the birth of her grandson. Ceremonies marked each of these occasions. Reflecting on this, Holly explains, “I noticed—as have you, I’m guessing—that not all ceremonies feel special and appropriate for the individuals being honored. I chose to become a Celebrant to craft original and truly meaningful ceremonies.”
Holly is ordained as a non-denominational minister because she respects the beliefs and traditions of different faiths around the world. She works with couples to provide unique marriage ceremonies— non-traditional or traditional, multi-faith or multi-cultural, religious or not, LGBT and beyond.
"Holly's ability to bring peace and calm to the craziness of planning a wedding was an added bonus to her skillful writing of our ceremony."
