Hi I’m Stephany Hawkins, and I’m a wedding officiant located in the heart of Frederick, Maryland.
The picture is from my vow renewal in 2023.
I’m a wife & mother to three wonderful biracial children, and they bring immense joy to my life. My journey into the world of weddings has been a truly fulfilling one, where I’ve had the honor of uniting couples in love and witnessing the start of their beautiful journeys together.
Beyond my role as a wedding officiant, I’m a passionate poet at heart. Writing poetry has always been a cherished and intimate part of my life, even though I once doubted the possibility of turning it into a career. Poetry allows me to express the beauty and emotions that surround us, making it an art form that holds a special place in my soul.
My desire to craft memorable wedding ceremonies and my love for poetic expression have come together to create a unique and meaningful experience for the couples I work with. I believe that every love story is a poem waiting to be written, and I’m excited to be a part of the journey in creating that poetic narrative for your special day.
I became a wedding officiant when I couldn't find a bilingual officiant at a reasonable price. So I don't want other couples to feel the same. Weddings are fun and planning one should be fun, not stressful. I want to make the ceremony the easiest part of the planning process.
Thank you for considering me as your wedding officiant, and I look forward to the opportunity to celebrate your love story.
In addition to my role as a wedding officiant, I’m proud to say that I’m bilingual, fluent in both English and Spanish. This means that I can conduct your wedding ceremony in either language, or even a beautiful blend of both, based on your preferences. I understand the significance of embracing diverse cultures and languages in your special day, and I’m here to make your ceremony a true reflection of your love, in the language that speaks to your hearts & families.
Mis padres son de El Salvador y nací aquí en los EE. UU. Me encanta hacer los rituales de unidad de nuestra cultura, especialmente cuando la pareja multirracial agrega eso a su ceremonia.
