About Us!

Penny Reynolds, Wedding Officiant in Charleston

How long has Reynolds Treasures been performing weddings?

In May of 2011, Reynolds Treasures began performing weddings.  We have multiple officiants available including both male and female. Please let us know in advance if you prefer a male officiant as we have to coordinate with their schedules.

What types of wedding ceremonies does Reynolds Treasures perform?

Let me begin my answer with our personal beliefs.  We view vows of marriage as a personal choice made between two people.  We honor and respect the couple’s traditions and needs without judgment and look past any differences in race, creed, situation or circumstance.  That being said, we perform many types of weddings.  As ordained ministers, we can perform a religious ceremony.  As notaries, we can perform civil weddings.  Every ceremony is personalized to each couple to highlight what is heartfelt and important to them. Most couples choose a spiritual (also called semi-religious) ceremony format.  People are people, and love is love. View the Charleston City Paper Gay Marriage Issue!


What makes Reynolds Treasures different from other ministers/officiants in the area?

The main difference is personality. We want to take the time to get to know couples and make sure we are the right fit.  A couple in search of a very formal officiant/minister that only performs one wedding ceremony and inserts their names, is not going to be a good fit for us. We believe weddings are a joyous occasion, and we are going to be smiling and having fun!  We want the ceremony to reflect the couple’s personality and capture the love they share, with a personalized wedding ceremony.  We are going to help the couple find a WOW factor to remember for years!  We are not saying all other officiants/ministers are formal and stuffy, we are just saying that is not us. Couples say they hired Reynolds Treasures because of our personality, passion, and positive reviews from previous couples.

This sounds wonderful!  What is the process to hire Reynolds Treasures?

Send us an email ( with your date and time and which package or services you are interested in.  We will send you a packet of information and a form to customize your selected package.  You will return the form with what services you need.  We will place a 5 day hold on your date and time, and write up a contract.  You will return the contract with a 50% deposit to book our services for your date and time. You will receive a link to view many sample ceremonies as well as a planning packet. We will then begin working on your details and a timeline that is comfortable for you.   The balance is due 10 days prior to the wedding.

What forms of payment to you take? Credit cards? Payment Plans?

We accept all major credit cards, debit cards and checks.  Please contact us if another form of payment is needed.

Is it proper to tip the minister/officiant?

You are not required to tip any wedding vendor.  However, if you feel any of the wedding vendors have gone above your expectations, you may provide a tip. Here is more information on tipping.
