Known as the "Wedding Witch of Salem," I'm a passionate, creative, colorful dame who LOVES love. Using my writing acumen, research skills, intuition, and magick, I conjure up unique ceremonies that will be remembered forever!

My name is Tara ("Tah-Rah") McMullen-King (She/Her), and I launched Witchy Woman Weddings in 2020 to help couples create wedding, commitment, and vow renewal ceremonies that honor their backgrounds, passions, and quirks.
 

I am an Eclectic Witch, an initiated Wiccan Priestess of British Traditional Witchcraft, and an ordained minister of American Marriage Ministries.

I am also a member of the International Association of Professional Wedding Officiants (IAPWO) and the Salem Chamber of Commerce, and have pursued advanced studies in professional ceremony officiation and wedding planning. In 2021, I completed intensive coursework offered by the New York Institute of Art and Design and certified by the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC), the world's largest professional wedding planning organization.

 

Prior to founding Witchy Woman Weddings, I spent 15 years working on design and coordination projects for a wide range of events, including professional conferences, fundraising events and galas, psychic fairs, and personal celebrations.

 

In addition to running Witchy Woman Weddings, I work for a fundraising research and data analytics consulting firm that has helped hundreds of nonprofit organizations across the United States and beyond.

 

When I am not hunkered down with my laptop working on projects, I can usually be found drinking too much black coffee from Dunkin Donuts, getting tattooed, indulging in retail therapy, bingewatching documentaries and trashtacular reality TV, and hitting up my favorite local haunts.

As a psychic witch, I often tap into my clairaudience and clairsentience, and I work with tarot cards, Lenormand cards, runes, tasseography, crystals, scrying, and candle magick.

 

I am also an artist, an award-winning researcher and trainer, a musician, a retired member of the Boston League of Women Wrestlers, and a huge fan of karaoke.

Born and raised in Connecticut, I moved to Boston in 2001 after graduating from Smith College, a women's college in Northampton. In 2015, I moved up North to the Witch City... and met my soulmate two weeks later! Three years after our first date here in Salem - which took place on a Friday the 13th, naturally - we had our own fabulous wedding at The House of the Seven Gables. We currently live in a 150-year-old home in Downtown Salem with our two black cats, Pugsley Addams and Darth Vader.

For those of you into astrology who would like to know my "Big Three"... my sun sign is Aquarius, my rising sign is Virgo, and my moon sign is Pisces!
