The State of Virginia has its own set of laws and regulations regarding application for a marriage license.

It’s a good idea to begin this process a month or so before your planned wedding date just in case.



WHISPERING PINES WEDDINGS provides  marriage or vow renewal ceremony services unique to you, anywhere in the greater Richmond, Virginia. Wedding officiant, Rev. Carol Ogburn meets with the couple, quides and helps plan the ceremony, to create a memorable day for the couple and their guests. 

As your wedding officiant, my goal is to personalize your ceremony, blending your ideas, suggestions and special requests to create a ceremony reflecting your love and spirit of commitment for each other. I will provide a booklet of ideas and suggestions to assist you in planning your wedding ceremony. Some ideas the booklet includes are:
