Recent review of our services:
"Mary Ellen Stanton was our officiant from Northern VA Ethical Society. She was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I are both atheist, so we wanted a non-religious celebrant. We were so relieved to find an officiant who shared so many important values with us and was able to give us a beautiful, thoughtful ceremony focused on love and commitment. She was also willing to work with our best man who translated the ceremony into Spanish for our Spanish-speaking guests. So many people told us afterwards that it was a beautiful and touching ceremony. We would definitely recommend Mary Ellen and the Northern VA Ethical Society to anyone looking for a secular celebrant! "

Ritual is a precious part of the human experience. Ethical Societies celebrate Weddings, Commitment Ceremonies, Baby Namings, Baby Welcomings, Funerals and Memorial Services.
