Wedding Officiant Services
She meets with the couple to talk about their wedding and designs a customized ceremony which incorporates the couple's beliefs and their desire to make meaningful and lasting vows to each other.
Her ceremonies have included Christian, Jewish, Native American, Buddhist, Hindu, Celtic, and civil. She integrates both inter-denominational and interfaith weddings into a ceremony in which the couple, family and friends feel included and comfortable. For those who are unchurched or not committed to any religious tradition, a spiritual but non-religious ceremony is designed. A choice of six ceremonies is presented to choose from for those who prefer a non-customized ceremony.
After the ceremony you are given a lovely Marriage Certificate suitable for framing which is signed by your official witnesses.
Angel Space Wedding Chapel
Reverend Mary Mooney's Raleigh office (formerly a residential home) is located in a lovely 1 1/2 acre outdoor setting which includes a pond and trees.

Rev. Mooney uses her own lapel microphone and sound system for outdoor weddings or those large hotels or halls where amplified sound is needed.
