Mecca thought that it would be a great idea to gather inspiration from a photo of a cake full of color and texture for Porter Street Workshop. We had no idea that Andrea of Sweet Details designed it and would later become a part of a successful project...

Charron Gardner Events had the pleasure of getting to know Rev Roxy, a social media savvy, fun, and relatable wedding officiant who offers premarital counseling based in Brooklyn, New York. Rev Roxy engages with her audience online, an ideal place for millennials to stay connected by sharing her day to day life, behind the scenes footage from weddings, and intimate interviews with her clients about their one on one experiences with her leaving stellar reviews. Discover what separates Rev Roxy from other wedding officiants in the wedding industry below.
What separates you from everyone else within your market?
Generally speaking, when researching some of the officiants you would find on your average wedding websites I’ve noticed a vast majority of officiants that have gotten their ordination online and have branded themselves as being the right officiant for ALL. That raises a bit of a red flag for me because, “How can one person be all things to all people?” Being a wedding minister is a very intimate process and requires the reveal of who someone is in order to determine if they are the best match for a client. This is not the case for MARRIED by REV ROXY. MARRIED by REV ROXY is a boutique wedding officiating + premarital counseling brand that services predominately self-identifying protestant/non-denominational Christians, non-practicing Catholics that are still deeply influenced by the general Christian faith and non-religious couples. As much as that may sound like it covers everyone it does not. I am an ordained minister by an evangelical tradition for almost 4 years, a graduate of seminary school with a Masters of Divinity in Urban Ministry and have about 7 years of military + clinical chaplaincy experience.
Who is your ideal client and what would they value the most from your services?
My ideal client will value the fact that I have worked in ministry within secular environments such as hospitals ( emergency rooms, psychiatric wards and hospice) and the military ( United States Army) as opposed to strictly working with a church. Through these experiences, I have provided spiritual and emotional support to people in crisis and their families from all walks of life. They will also want to not only take advantage of my sharp presentation skills honed from an educational and work background of over 20 years in film, theater, and television but my ability to provide premarital counseling along with my husband Rev. Joshua Birchfield ( husband + wife perspective).
What do you do in your spare time for fun?
Travel, sleep + watch LOTS of reality tv! 🙂
How did you take an interest in becoming a reverend?
My parents are originally from the Caribbean. My parents and I first came to the United States when I was not even 1 year old. This was for my father’s seminary studies in Chicago, IL. Seminary and ministry has been a theme in my family. Although my father did not have a long run in ministry I felt influenced first during the devastation of 9/11 my senior year of high school but then again in my mid-twenties after finding a church to call my own.
What fashion or trends are you wearing while working?
My official religious garments are handmade + tailored by a FIT graduate who owns a company called j-espere.com ( IG: @_jespere). For non-religious ceremonies, I wear a classic uniform dress by designer Louis Vuitton. If I am wearing gold shoes they are by Christian Louboutin. My black shoes are classic stilettos by H&M.
What would you like to see a change in the wedding industry?
I would like to see the wedding industry strive to be a more customer driven industry where the service members (the vendors) are LISTENING MORE to the needs of the clients and creating innovative ideas inspired by their needs rather than using the industry as their political playground. Naturally, people will form communities and brands around certain needs of varying cultures and under-served communities but that should be a factor that brings people together as opposed to segregating them. All love can be celebrated without the expectation that all vendors can and will be the answer for all clients because many facts draw barriers to include economics.
