Robert (Bob) Woody became an ordained non-denominational Wedding Officiant in 2001 after retiring from his career as a National Park Ranger. He and his wife of 20 years, Bebe, are now Proprietors of The White Doe Inn Bed and Breakfast on Roanoke Island which hosts many small weddings. Bob performs wedding ceremonies all along the Outer Banks including the Manteo Waterfront to the beaches from Corolla to Hatteras.

Bob’s wedding and vow renewal ceremonies are inter-denominational in their approach, and he has done interfaith ceremonies as well. The service is flexible with a basic ceremonial order around which the Bride and Groom can structure their ceremony, including writing their own vows.

The Order of Ceremony is usually based on the following:

  • Gathering Words
  • Bible Reading(Optional)
  • The Giving of the Bride(Optional)
  • Charge to the Couple
  • Remembrance(Optional)
  • Opening Prayer
  • The Question, The Promise, The Marriage Vows and The Exchange of Rings, Concluding Blessings
  • Prayer of Benediction
  • Marriage Pronouncement and Presentation of Couple

Additional ceremonial components may be added; including Unity Candle, Wine, Rose, Sand, and Family Union rituals, as well as ceremonial participation by family and friends through readings and song.
