I truly feel to have Ryan Stifter as your Wedding Officiant would be very special. He loves what he does and it shows with each wedding he performs. A very special treat for the bride and groom and their guests. If I were getting married I wouldn't hesitate to contact him.

Judge Rob Wedding Officiant

Rob, now not only our wedding officiant but now a friend of our family. I saw Rob's profile on thumbtack on Friday March 3,2017 and got married on Monday March 6.2017 at 6.30 a.m in the morning. Rob was very understanding from the get go, he told me exactly what he offered and followed through it to the very end. At our wedding he was very witty, energetic and funny. He treated us like family, he gave my photographer ideas on how to take my photos. The wedding was at the Fontainebleau and Rob had so much knowledge regarding the hotel, I was a bit late and he did not rush me. I could go on and on, but he was a great officiant and we highly recommend him to anyone you won't be disappointed. Thank you so much again Rob.

I hired Mr. Rubba for matrimony services today as he is a Notary Public and a Florida wedding officient. Our service was performed exactly as planned and Mr. Rubba was excellent. My wife and I were totally pleased with the professionalism and friendliness of Frank Rubba today. He was on time as we agreed and his feet was extremely fair. Paperwork was signed and stamped and we are now a happily married couple. Bob and Angela Wieder

All You Need is Love

Thanks to Kathy Altaro the wedding went off without a hitch. She did a fabulous job on the officiating of my daughter's wedding. She made them feel at ease and spoke from the heart. Kathy knows the true meaning of the marriage vows and conveys the couples wishes of what they want for the ceremony. Great job Kathy! A memorable occasion!

Marry Me, LLC

My husband based in Denver and I based in London organised our wedding over email with Constance. She were very helpful and made us feel calm with all the forward planning. Being our first wedding she gave us examples of ceremonies which were great. Our actually wedding turned out amazing, we hosted it at my husbands grandparent's garden. Even though our guests were late (luckily Constance were late due to traffic but communicated over phone with us) she managed to keep us gathered and calm in a moment of frenzy. We are both very pleased we hired Constance, she is charismatic, very friendly and supportive and has a great sense of humour which was needed in a moment when my husband and I tried to get our guests to sit down for our wedding. Our day were perfect and the ceremony was beautiful. Roberto and Rondell

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
