"Jon did a wonderful job as our pastor. He took time out of his busy schedule at the last minute(about 24 hr notice) so that he could marry us in the hospital chapel the day after our son was born. It was absolutely perfect. He then did another public ceremony for us for all our friends and family to attend. It was exactly what we wanted!"

"How much can I write?! I truly cannot say enough heartfelt, wonderful things about Rob Anderson.. He was professional and sentimental at the same. He did not want us to worry about anything on, or leading up to, our special day. We had no idea what to expect or what the ceremony entailed. Rob provided a template with options/ideas to personalize our ceremony and encouraged us along the way to do what felt right, while also giving us honest feedback. He was there for us throughout the planning process and called many times to see how we were doing, whether we needed anything, how he could be helpful- totally supportive and committed to our day. I would recommend Rob to anyone and am so grateful he officiated for us.. his bright smile added to our memories- and our photos! Thanks, Rob :)"

"I was literally ready to settle with one of the other officiants. When I talked to them I knew in my heart that something wasn't right about them. Then Nate came up on the list and I decided to give him a call. I knew he was the one to go with after the first 20 seconds on the phone. I scheduled a meeting with him and that night I told my wife that I found the person. After our sit down meeting a few days later, she couldn't agree with me more. If you want to impress your soon to be wife like I did, just reach out to Nate. You do not want to start you wedding with a disappointing ceremony. It is so valuable and you do not get a second try. Nate is by far the best officiant in the valley. He is smooth and confident and not one moment was awkward. You are rolling the dice with anybody else. He also offers professional counseling services! This guy has his shit together and I wouldn't change anything."

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.
