"We did a destination wedding in Arizona and we live in Wisconsin. The distance made me a bit nervous with not being able to meet Perry prior to our wedding day. However, I was very impressed with how responsive he was and he even went out shopping for the ribbons for our handfasting ceremony and sent me images of the colors. I could not believe how thorough he was. :) Our wedding day was perfect as well! He was very kind, on time {even though we weren't}, and just overall exceptional!!!! Thank you so much Perry! We really appreciate it and I could not have picked a better person to marry us."

"Pastor Ron Faus conducted our wedding ceremony and he did nothing short of a phenomenal job. He is extraordinarily personable and will tailor his speech to make it special for each individual couple. Ron and his wife Carol are wonderful people and it was an honor to have them at our ceremony. We had an outdoor wedding that had some unexpected weather for Phoenix, AZ and they both did a great job adjusting to the unforeseen circumstances to ensure everything was perfect. I highly recommend his services to anyone who is ready to take the next step in their lives! Marcus + Samantha"

"He was very timely! He showed up 2 hours early to set up. He answered all my questions thoroughly. He was a businessman. He had contracts for me to sign and return. He played the music that I requested and took requests. My guests loved the option of karaoke. I would highly recommend him. "

"Sally Hervey officiated my son's wedding in 2011. At the time he was serving in the US Army in Fort Drum NY and the wedding took place in Phoenix AZ. She met with the Bride and Groom over Skype initially and for sometime after that they worked out all the details for a personalized and appropriate ceremony. Sally's compassion and sense of humor were evident in the words used in the ceremony. They also made reference to my son's time in the Army. At that time in our life as he was facing a deployment, it was a heartfelt tribute to all of us, really. Sally is a professional colleague and she exhibits the same compassion and sense of humor in her daily life as well. I would HIGHLY recommend her for such a personal and important event..."

"Joe did an awesome job with his charm and wit at our Elvis Chapel wedding last weekend at Superstition Mountain. He even dressed up in his wonderful western gear since our wedding had a western theme. Joe also brought some great sound equipment along so that we could play our own selection of eclectic music before and during the ceremony."

"Pastor Angie Barker was amazing! She was so flexible and accommodating. She took the time with us to figure out how exactly we wanted the ceremony to go. She incorporated everything we wanted in the ceremony and personalized it for us. The ceremony was absolutely amazing! She spoke such beautiful words over us and kept God at the center of our ceremony which is exactly what we wanted. We feel so blessed to have had her officiate our wedding. Many years later she’s still a trusted confidant and a good friend! Thank you so much Pastor Angie Barker!!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to officiate a wedding?

The national average cost to hire a wedding officiant is $150-$200. Wedding officiant rates are affected by the date of the ceremony, the time of day, and how far the officiant has to travel. Some officiants may charge extra for additional ceremonies like unity candles or sand ceremonies, as well as the cost of the supplies. Many wedding officiants have higher rates for larger weddings and lower rates for smaller, more intimate ceremonies. Personalizing the ceremony means a lot to some couples. Wedding officiants may have flat rates for standard ceremony templates, perhaps $100-$125, and charge more for a more customized experience, such as $150-$200. This allows the couple to collaborate with the wedding officiant as they are building a unique ceremony script. At the pre-wedding meeting, the officiant will ask whether the couple plans to write their own vows and how much input they have about the rest of the wording and flow of the ceremony. Additional planning meetings and extra communication can add up to a higher overall cost. If your venue has parking or other fees, you may need to pay on behalf of the officiant. Often wedding officiants can rent sound systems and wireless mics if you have an outdoor wedding location or venue that is not wired. These extras will also increase the overall cost.

What does it mean to officiate a wedding?

To officiate a wedding is to oversee the official union of two people in marriage. A wedding officiant is vested with the power to legitimize your union in the eyes of the court. An officiant also sets the tone for your ceremony, leading the couple through their vows and shaping the experience with the words they choose and the pace they set. An officiant may be based in a religious faith, may be an interfaith officiant, may be a secular officiant, or may be a friend or family member who has received ordination online.

You can have a traditional wedding officiated, or you can also have an officiant oversee a commitment ceremony, a vow renewal or an elopement. Once the wedding is complete, the officiant will ask you to sign the wedding certificate, and will then submit the document to the court on your behalf. This makes your marriage legal. Wedding officiants work with you no matter how simple or elaborate you would like your ceremony to be. The more involved wedding officiants are in the planning and customization of the ceremony, the more they will typically charge.

Who performs a wedding ceremony?

Anyone who is authorized by the court or a credible online source has the power to perform a wedding ceremony. Traditionally, wedding officiants were ordained members of a religious organization or civil officiants authorized by the court to legally marry two people. With the increasing customization and personalization of weddings, many couples are asking a friend or family member to become ordained and act as their wedding officiant. Wedding officiants can represent a wide range of backgrounds including Christian, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, nondenominational, interfaith or nonreligious. There is no legally required structure for a wedding ceremony, so couples can customize the language of the ceremony and their vows in any way they desire (though members of some religions may have specific requirements). To legally validate the marriage, the couple and the wedding officiant must sign a marriage certificate after the ceremony verifying the date and names of those involved. The wedding officiant should then submit the certificate to the court, which will in turn mail an official marriage certificate to the newly married couple.
