We are David and Susan Carriker and we fell in love over forty years ago while in high school. Yes, we are high school sweethearts.

During college we married with little more than love and a dream of being together. It is a choice we both are glad we made. Our life together has been and remains a grand adventure. Through challenges and blessings we have learned and experienced that marriage is worthy of our best effort. Our mission is to stand with couples as they declare through the marriage ceremony, their love, devotion, and commitment to one another.

We have both spent our professional careers in front of people. We know that preparation is key. We also know that it is vital to work closely with people to ensure that what they envision is what is accomplished. Whether it is a wedding, a renewal of vows, a child dedication, or whatever your special life moment; we enjoy sharing in that joy. Each ceremony adds to the wonderful tapestry of our life because we meet and share a moment of life with someone new.

As Wedding Officiants, Celebrants, and Ordained Non-Denominational Ministers, David and Susan thoughtfully create and conscientiously deliver wedding ceremonies for couples of all faiths and traditions throughout the Carolinas: non-denominational, spiritual, religious, interfaith or civil/secular. We work to reflect your uniqueness as a couple, respecting your beliefs, traditions, and values.

We enjoy hearing your story and then faithfully weaving that story and your personalities into your ceremony. Our heart, as well as yours, goes in to the ceremony. Working together, David and Susan take responsibility for crafting, writing, and delivering your ceremony in an authentic and loving presentation at a location of your choice. It’s important that the words and “feel” of your ceremony reflect your loving partnership. We look forward to sharing with you how we will gather the pieces of your relationship to build your inspiring and romantic wedding ceremony.

With This Ring… is committed to providing couples with fully customizable ceremonies and vows that allow for the ceremony to truly complement the couples’ love story and personalities. Our saying is, “It is your wedding, your dream, your way”, and we look forward to helping you achieve your dream wedding day.
