"Reverend Camilo is a professional and was a pleasure to work with in helping to create our dream wedding. Reverend Camilo conducted our wedding ceremony exactly as we wished by customizing the reading of the wedding vows and able to travel to us and officiate at the harbor waterfront of Marina Del Rey. We highly recommend Reverend Camilo to conduct your wedding ceremony. Thank you for the memories Reverend!"

"Pastor Charlie was such a blessing to us. When my friend's dad who is a pastor wasn't able to perform our ceremony we were left scrambling to find someone. Being christians and wanting a christian wedding ceremony I didn't want to just pick any officiant. I was really hesitant to find someone online but we are so thankful for Pastor Charlie. He is a wonderful man that has been married for many years and has a wife and children and grandchildren and also pastors a church. We also had pastor charlie do counseling for us. We live far away so we did skype sessions. We didn't necessarily think we needed counseling because we thought we were really good at communication and we are both on the same page with everything about life but we really learned a lot from him and there were things that came up with family and stress of wedding planning that he really helped us get through. I think it was great for us to have someone removed from our circle of family, friends, and church, to counsel us because we could really open up and share things and discuss things with him. He really got to know us and you can tell that he is doing this because it's really his heart to counsel people and not a job or for money. He has a lot of wisdom from his own life and wants couples to have the best Godly marriage possible. Our ceremony was beautiful and even though he didn't know us previous to our counseling, he took the time to get to know us and no one at the ceremony would have known we just met him a few months prior. Seemed as if we had known him for years. I would definitely recommend him. Out of all the people I researched in my area I found him to be the best honest, caring christian pastor for our ceremony."

"She was a live saver. I had 2 officiants cancel on me a few days before my big day. I contacted her and was willing to do the job. She made me feel like I had a say in what she was going to say during the ceremony and most important she was on time. She even arrived a little early to confirm everything. Thank You for being our live saver in our big day."

"Pastor Brad was a wonderful officiant of our wedding. Not like others that send you a quote, Brad meets with you prior to you agreeing to use his services. He gets to know you personally and doesn't require a deposit. You can customize your wedding or use a template that he has pre written to review before meeting him. We elected to use his template which resulted in a wonderful ceremony. I would highly recommend him to provide your wedding."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.
