Carolyn Pryor is an ordained minister and a wedding officiant. She will plan a unique ceremony based on
the couple's values, beliefs and traditions.   Couples can "tie the knot" on the sea, with a small wedding
party, or "get hitched" near the sea, where more wedding guests can participate. There are many beautiful
venues in Brunswick County and the southeast North Carolina coast to choose from, such as the Bald Head
Island Chapel or Lighthouse, the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher, the Southport Community Building, or the
Southport saltmarsh gazebo. Prices will vary with the location and elaborateness of the events.

WEDDINGS, CHRISTENINGS and RENEWAL OF VOWS
Above, a couple exchange vows at the bow.

Pictured at left is a Christmas-season wedding at
the
Robert Ruark Inn, Southport, NC, an
historical bed and breakfast named after the
famous author. Note the set-up for a unity candle
ceremony on the right. In warmer seasons, the
side garden of the Inn makes a beautiful wedding
setting.
