Charley Taylor


Charley Taylor is a west Texas boy, born and raised in the Hub City—Lubbock, TX. This graduate of Texas Tech (“Guns up!”), Abilene Christian University (“Go Cats!”) and Sunset School of Preaching (we didn’t have a yell) was blessed by God to meet and marry his high school sweetheart, Terrie, and they have shared 53 years of marriage together. In more than 44 years of church ministry, and just about any church job or position you can name, Charley has done it! But hear this: Out of all the things he has done to bless and minister to people in that time, Charley loves to do weddings more than anything! He loves to hear the stories of how couples met, and seeks to learn everything he can about them so he can make their wedding as personal as possible. Charley is a joyful guy and has a great sense of humor, both of which he will add to your special day in appropriate ways. Your wedding should be one of the most important days of your life and, once the hard work is done to get everyone and everything ready for the big day, you should be able to just have fun and enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime moment! Charley is there for you to make sure that will happen.

SKU: CharleyTaylor Category:



  • Happily married to Terrie since 1970—She’s my greatest gift, who, by the way, is also the world’s greatest cook!
  • Blessed to be the father to 3 grown kids and proud grandfather (“Papa”) to 11 awesome grandkids. I’m a dedicated participant in “dad jokes” and now “granddad jokes, too”
  • My dad nicknamed me “Knothead” when I was a boy because of my stubbornness.
  • Favorite movie—Back to the Future (the one liners are endless and priceless); Favorite TV show—NCIS
  • Dallas Cowboys, KC Chiefs and TX Tech are my favorite football teams
  • I’m fluent in Brazilian Portuguese after our family served as missionaries there for 8 years
  • I want the fruits of the Spirit to show up in my life—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control
  • Someone I admire greatly in this world is my 91 year old mother-in-law. She has outlived 3 husbands, and at one point, raised 6 kids as a single mom for 16 years. Her strong faith has given her the courage to grow through all her struggles. She’s a rock and my hero!
  • My favorite quote—The Serenity Prayer: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
  • My wife, Terrie, and I serve in our church as Relationship Champions, which means we work with 1) premarital couples to prepare for their lives together and 2) existing marriages to help make them stronger.
  • I want every marriage I touch to be permeated by a mutual commitment by both bride and groom to remain together no matter what, and be a team that fights together against whatever obstacle comes their way.

  1. Happy Mother of the Bride

    I would highly recommend Charley Taylor as a wedding officiant. He was intentional about making our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding meaningful and memorable. He not only spoke extensively to the bride and groom about their wishes for their special day, he also asked the bride and groom’s parents for childhood stories and interesting anecdotes which he added to the ceremony making it personal and extra special.

  2. Todd and Erica

    We would absolutely recommend Charley Taylor for your wedding ceremony, above all others! He was genuinely interested in relating to our past, while including the spiritual ties that brought us together. Charley’s faith in Jesus, his compassion and guidance, was way beyond anything we could have imagined! Charley is an amazing human, walking in faith with the Holy Spirit. We love Charley to this day, and we know that you will, too!

    Charley Taylor did such an amazing job uniting my wife and I. He was so professional. The experience with him was awesome and we are so glad to have had him officiate our wedding. He incorporated some things we didn’t expect and we were delighted by what he said. We are very happy he was a part of our special day. Thank you Charley!

    Charley Taylor is the best ever! He went above and beyond to create the ceremony we wanted. He guided us and answered all of our questions. He ensured that everything that happened was what we had dreamt of for our wedding. He even added personal touches that were just perfect, which was my favorite part! 100000% would recommend him for your wedding!

  7. Camille~The Knot

    We had the pleasure of having Charley Taylor officiate our wedding. I went back and forth on whether or not I should ask a family member to officiate, and I am so glad we went with LoveNotes. Charley did a wonderful job creating the ceremony of our dreams and adding a personal touch. Our guests were blown away and some even asked for a copy of our vows. Make things easy for yourselves and go with LoveNotes!!!

  8. Allie from The Knot

    My husband and I had Charley Taylor from LoveNotes. Our request for a “light religious” ceremony was easy to make possible with their helpful book, and Charley’s guidance. We had NUMEROUS guests tell us that the ceremony really stood out to them, and they loved how personal the service was. Charley did a great job tying in our wishes, some humor and lots of personal touches that really told our love story well, and gave the guests more insight into who we are as a couple. Thanks for everything!

  9. Ericka Tan

    We had my wedding in Plano, Texas last December 28, 2023. And Charley Taylor was my officiant. He really made my wedding so special! He is very well prepared of his speech. He surprised me and my husband with his words of wisdom. My family likes the way he talk during our wedding. He coordinates us very well, he made the pronouncement on time at 10:58am due to Chinese belief. Mr. Taylor, thank you very much for making our wedding so memorable!!!
