Introduction: I love seeing the faces of my couples just as I am about to pronounce them married. The joy and love are what weddings are all about. The creative process of personalizing your ceremony is priceless to me. Speaking of price, there are many officiants who are less expensive. This is the most important day of your life so talk to a few different officiants in different price ranges to make sure you have a good fit with the person who marries you. You’ll have memories of this day for the rest of your life and that person will be in many of your photos. My fee ranges from $250 to $350 depending on your location. This is YOUR wedding and you should have nothing but happiness on your day. I hope we have a chance to talk.

Joanne was extremely thorough and made writing our vows very easy. She definitely added to our special day and would recommend her to anyone needing an officiant or ordained minister.

Joanne Zito did a great job as the Officiant for our wedding. Although we were from out of town, Joanne made the communication process very easy and contacted me immediately as we were searching for vendors a year ahead of our wedding. Joanne also made our lives easy by sending us a very easy-to-follow questionnaire that enabled us to assist with creating the ceremony along with our vows. Joanne was also very kind to assist with our rehearsal the day before the wedding. Joanne has a great personality. She is very fun and made us feel very comfortable throughout the planning process and on the day of our wedding. She also did a great job capturing our love and commitment with her comments during the ceremony. Joanne also took care of returning our marriage license, so that we had one less detail to worry about as we left for our Honeymoon. If you want the BEST, ask Joanne Zito to be your Wedding Officiant. Joanne is an 11 on a scale of 1-10. We love you Joanne. Michael and Ann Divello

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My fee is $250 - $350 depending on your location. That is all inclusive of meeting the couple, writing their ceremony, going to the rehearsal, the wedding and filing their marriage license. Fee is payable by cash or check at the rehearsal or ceremony. There are no additional charges or surprises. Everything is included. A non-refundable deposit of $100 is required to hold your date.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first meeting is a free consultation to get to know each other. Once the couple decides that they want me to officiate their wedding, I ask a lot of questions so I can write a ceremony based on the information they have given me. We continue to tweak the ceremony by phone, email or in person to make sure the ceremony comes from their heart and reflects their lifestyle. We talk again a month prior to the wedding to review the ceremony make any changes, etc. I will be at the rehearsal if needed and of course the ceremony and will be available by phone or email throughout the entire process to answer any questions or concerns that may come up. This is YOUR wedding. I want you to be comfortable with me and in this process. Don't hesitate to ask any question that comes to mind. I am available to you from the time you hire me to your wedding. I will also file your marriage license via certified mail and let you know when I get the return receipt. I also make a copy of your license just in case you need it before you receive your certified copy from the county.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am an ordained minister with the Universal Life Church. I have performed many weddings and I care very much about my couples.
