Meet Vanessa Meredith
An officiant sets the tone for the ceremony, if not the entire day, and I take pride in creating and officiating an unforgettable ceremony that engages your guests as they laugh and cry - whether combining sincerity with humor, lightheartedness with love, brevity with significance - for a celebration that is uniquely you. You deserve an officiant you can both trust and feel a connection with, and I aspire to make every couple I work with feel like long-time friends.
As a former bridal consultant, I assisted dozens of brides in finding the perfect wedding dress. It wasn't until I was asked to officiate a dear friend's wedding ceremony that I discovered my calling was so much more than a single bridal experience; guiding a couple toward the journey of a lifetime as their ceremony officiant is my passion and a true honor and privilege.
So, in 2016, I became a non-denominational ordained minister specializing in creative ceremonies that embraces couples' individual styles. As a licensed marriage officiant, I have performed dozens of religious, civil, interfaith, intercultural and pop culture-style wedding ceremonies in New Jersey, and the Bucks County and Philadelphia, Pa., area. Taking part in one of the happiest and most momentous occasions of couples' lives is why I truly enjoy what I do!
No two couples are alike, and neither are the ceremonies I create and the friendships I make doing so. As your officiant, I am dedicated to learning your unique style as a couple and letting it inspire me to create a one-of-a-kind ceremony that perfectly reflects the love you share for each other. I never create the same ceremony twice!
Planning a ceremony shouldn't become so overwhelming that there is no longer any fun or excitement involved. My goal is to make this part of your wedding planning the easiest. We won't go through numerous drafts, nor will you be left to stress over writing your own vows alone. I'll guide you every step of the way.
As an officiant, I live by the one-client-centric rule: the most important thing is that you get what you want in your ceremony. You deserve a dedicated and creative officiant with a willingness to go above and beyond for you, all while doing it with a smile. Let's create the ceremony of your dreams!
Vanessa, thank you so much for performing our ceremony. It was truly wonderful and definitely made our day perfect. Thank you for being so lax with us as I know we were very last minute and not the most organized! But you truly were like family, and we hope you enjoyed the reception as much as we did!
- HEATHER, NEW JERSEY
