We Can Perform the Service

Ordained & Non-denominational Officiant

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 30 years, Bebe, are now proprietors of the White Doe Inn in North Carolina, which hosts many small weddings. Bob performs wedding and vow renewal ceremonies at the White Doe Inn, Manteo waterfront, and Nags Head beaches..

Bob’s ceremonies are Christian inter-denominational in their approach. The service is flexible, with a basic ceremonial order which can be structured by the wedding couple, including writing their own vows or making the ceremony more spiritual. Additional ceremonial components may be added, including Unity Candle, Wine, Rose, Sand, and Family Union rituals, as well as participation by family and friends through readings and song.

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
