As a well-rounded and well-spoken wedding Officiant, Rodney McClain derives great satisfaction from working with couples of diverse perspectives and backgrounds.

Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, Rodney has lived in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, and Texas. He left an engineering career, and moved to Asheville with his beautiful bride, in order to pursue a life closer to his heart. In addition to officiating, he works at Moog Music Inc in Asheville and is much happier nestled in the mountains and connecting with people from all walks of life.

Rodney enjoys performing secular, interfaith, and religious ceremonies, as the goal is always a joyous and polished ceremony that is tailored to your particular needs. Rodney’s outlook is perhaps best summed up in the following Chinese proverb: "There are many paths to the top of the mountain, but the view is always the same." Growing up in the Baptist church has given Rodney a reverence and understanding of ritual, but having studied philosophy and many other faiths, he has opened his heart and mind to all viewpoints and expressions of spirituality.

From arranging his own destination wedding in Scotland, where he paid respect to his own heritage, he understands the challenges of planning such an event, and he aims to make this process easy and fun for you. Asheville Marriages is very fortunate to have Rodney as part of our family. He looks forward to making some amazing memories with you!
