Marjorie was the officiant at our wedding this past Friday. She was outstanding! She worked with us to make some changes to the ceremony and even included our two children in it. She responded to e-mails promptly. On the day of the wedding she was on time and performed a beautiful ceremony. We received a lot of compliments on how personal she made everything feel rather than being scripted. She was so friendly and easy to work with. I highly recommend Marjorie if you're looking for an officiant!

We had amazing experience with Diane Hirsh as the officiant for our wedding. Diane has that rare combination of a high professionalism and warm sincere approach. She guided us skillfully through the preparation process - drafting the vows and planning the day of, she arrived ahead of time prepared and looking great, efficiency and warmly performed the ceremony with beautiful smile and kind spirit. We couldn't have wished for a better officiant. Great memories of the day have been created and will stay with us forever! Thank you Diane!

Minister Keaton was exceptional as our wedding officiant.We were coordinating from out of town and on short notice but she truly made the experience easy. After just one conversation with her over the phone I knew she was the one for us. She was flexible, tailor making the ceremony to what we wanted for a reasonable price. She is truly a wonderful minister to work with and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant!

Hands down Mr. Rovan is top notch when you are considering having an officiant that will make your day a special and memorable one for the couple and the guests. We had an interfaith marriage and he was very willing to work in collaboration with the Imam to put together the wedding ceremony... My wife and I came from a different cultural background and have different faiths,I am a Nigerian and she's an African-American...He was very attentive in learning more about the couple which he used in putting together the wedding ceremony. He has a very good sense of humour and had the entire guests laughing when he was delivering a captivated and well articulated ceremony. I will definitely recommend him for any interfaith or regular wedding ceremony because he is very capable of delivering a good ceremony.

We can't imagine having anyone but Rev. Norma as the officiant for our wedding. She brought in such a beautiful light with her insights and originality. Our wedding ceremony was unique and exactly what we wanted. It was inspiring for the two of us ashould well as those who were in attendance (many who were moved to tears.) She helped to create an atmosphere of love and joy with her words, her energy and her presence.

This review is for before the actual ceremony. However, I can say the process was easy and straight forward from package selection to setting the date. Shannon was very responsive and helpful answered emails and phone calls within a reasonable amount of time and always friendly! Her wedding officiant services added at no extra charge is really a plus for me! Also learn from my mistake. Youll have to get a PG county marriage license so make sure you have that 48 hours in advance! Cheers! -Chris

Denise was amazing! From the moment I received and excepted the quote, she was communicating very promptly. I wanted a private intimate ceremony at home, and Denise delivered the ceremony beautifully. I'm very thankful to have had Denise be our wedding officiant.

Rev. Kaehn was the most amazing officiant for our wedding! She went above and beyond, letting us insert our personal touches into the ceremony, was super responsiveness to all emails, great price, had great laughs with the groom & best man waiting for me, and was so special to start a prayer chain separate from our ceremony for my mother who is ill. She really made our wedding extra special!!

Working with Jessica was an absolute delight! She was the officiant for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Jessica was professional, timely, warm and generous. She stayed in contact months before the wedding, to discuss plans and help us organize, and then as we got closer to the actual wedding she checked in often to discuss any needs or changes. She was very creative with our ceremony and open to our ideas. We highly recommend her!

Michael Mills conducted our wedding ceremony in February 2016 and he was a pleasure to work with! Our ceremony was quite simple but he sat down with us to make sure that it was exactly what we wanted and made suggestions based on our faith. I highly recommend him for anyone in need of an officiant for their special day!

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.

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.

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.
