"Jon provided us with the most spectacular ceremony we could have every asked for. When we initially met with him for our consultation, he was super helpful and very knowledgeable! He made the ceremony planning very easy and enjoyable! Our wedding was 12/27/2015 and I loved how flexible Jon was with our guests, bridal party, and parents, especially since many of our guest did not speak the best English. I honestly could not be more happy with the decision we made to go with Jon as our wedding officiant. The ceremony was the most important aspect of our wedding for me and he made sure that everything ran smoothly and that the ceremony was memorable, and most importantly meaningful. Jon, thank you very much for the service you provided. It was fantastic! "

"Sam was the best person I could have chose to officiate my wedding back in 2014. He listened to everything my husband and I asked for and made the wedding very personal. If I had to choose anyone to ever officiate another ceremony again, I would hands down choose Sam! Thank you 😘"

"I was looking for a wedding officiant very last minute and Pastor Gunter was the first to contact. I had a good feeling about him, so I just went ahead and chose him. We talked one time and he had only one week to prepare. We got stuck at the probate court before the ceremony, so he patiently waited with no fuss. He was the one that picked the beautiful area that we got married at and gave us wonderful advice right before the ceremony. The ceremony was absolutely amazing due to the beautiful prayers and vows he had written himself. The wedding couldn't have been better! He was more outstanding than I could have asked for."

"I could not have asked for a better officiant for our wedding! David and Toni were so charming and professional throughout the ceremony and into the reception. It is not an easy thing to choose the person to perform a wedding ceremony using the internet, but I assure you that David is a fantastic choice. He has a wonderful attitude and made me feel very comfortable. We didn't even need a rehearsal and it was flawless. I was so grateful to both David and Toni, who took a day from their vacation to drive 95 miles to start us on our lives together. I would recommend them for your event. You will not be disappointed at all. I am so very pleased! Thank you both so much for your gracious and professional demeanor on such a potentially stressful day! We are blessed! Morgan"

"Kristin was fantastic as a wedding officiant. As our ceremony was relatively small, she took the time to assist us with ceremony coordination as well. Kristin and Knock-Out Nuptials went above and beyond what my husband and I had hoped for with a wedding officiant and last minute coordinator. She was fabulous and I would recommend her to everyone who is getting married!"

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.
