Celebrant & Officiant

Dave Norris, Charlottesville-Area Wedding Officiant

Charlottesville, VA

The Details

I had the honor of serving as Mayor of Charlottesville from 2008-2012 and was asked to officiate a number of weddings in that capacity. Even after leaving office, the requests kept coming in and I was delighted to comply with each and every one. I enjoy performing weddings so much that I went into business as a part-time wedding officiant. I specialize in performing relatively simple, civil ceremonies that can be custom-designed to reflect the personalities, values and backgrounds of the soon-to-be-betrothed. I am not an ordained minister but am happy to weave religious elements into the ceremony upon request. While I am legally eligible to perform weddings anywhere in the Commonwealth of Virginia, my primary geographic focus is Charlottesville and the surrounding counties.

Dave was great! We respect his values and his commitment to ensuring each of the couples he marries are provided with a ceremony personalized to them as a couple. He was very receptive to our ideas, and incredibly flexible when we changed some of the ceremony at the last minute.

Finding an officiant that was a good fit for our mountain elopement was more difficult than we had imagined! We wanted someone experienced and laid-back and we knew Dave was right for the job as soon as we found his website. Dave was very flexible from day one, allowing us to write our entire ceremony, and agreeing to hike to our location. The whole process was stress-free. If you're looking for someone to marry you, we'd definitely recommend Dave!
