We used Rev Christine for our wedding in July and she was wonderful to work with! We knew she was perfect for us the first time we met her. Very professional and easy going. We had a non-denominational ceremony outside and she really catered to our needs, providing different ceremony options. Highly recommend!

Sarah was available at the last minute to officiate our non-religious backyard ceremony. She sent us her very, very reasonable quote on Monday and married us that Friday. During that time, she went above and beyond to put together a personalized, but simple and brief ceremony. She made it easy for us to choose from a few ceremony and reading options, and welcomed our additions. I wasn't sure what to expect with a religious minister performing our non-religious ceremony, but Pastor Sarah really understood what we wanted. Overall she was very responsive and organized, and a pleasure to work with. She arrived promptly for the ceremony, sent the license in immediately, and even took pictures of us and our three guests. (And she was patient with me on this too, as of course I wanted several do-overs on the photos!) My family commented on her calm, friendly, and celebratory demeanor. I couldn't recommend Pastor Sarah more!

Marjorie did an amazing job officiating our wedding. She took the time to get to know our story and was available any time I had a question. The ceremony was non denominational, quick, and touched on all the aspects of our relationship that we wanted shared with our guests. This was exactly what we wanted and asked for. We would highly recommend Marjorie for a great experience.

Rev. Troy Denson is a delightful spirit and an encouraging Christian minister. He is of sound character; works diligently and patiently when carrying out liturgical services for the church. Rev. Denson has officiated our annual church officers installation; he has catechized ministers for ordination; and he has preached inspiring sermons when called upon. Most important, Troy is ecumenically diverse, in that he is knowledgeable of the various Christian denominational methods, and offers his services accordingly. It is a pleasure having Rev. Denson available when needed. - Rev. Charles Y. Davis, Jr.

Minister Tony Keith was absolutely phenomenal! From the very moment he introduced himself, he treated me and my now husband like family. We completed pre-marital counseling sessions with Minister Tony and he was so intuned and listened to our needs to provide great counseling. Minister Tony also officiated our wedding and was outstanding. We thank him so much for everything!

After meeting and speaking with Becky, I knew she was the one! Becky (nicknamed "Bee") is very hospitable and professional. She treated me and my finance as if we were best friends from many years ago. As soon to be newlyweds, we were completely unknowledgeable of the entire ceremony process. Bee provided handouts and reference materials to help us understand the process. She even made recommendations based on my culture. If you are looking for a non-denominational officiant who is kind hearted, professional, and responsive, choose Becky!

Sandy is super friendly and very flexible. She is a joy to work with. She is extremely welcoming and non judgmental. I highly recommend her for anyone looking to create their own custom ceremony. She has no problems being open minded to what you have to say. She really focuses on making the day about the Bride & Groom!

Dr. Wright officiated our wedding and she was just an absolute joy! As soon as we got on the phone with her - we knew she was the one. She is accepting, spiritual, comical, and professional at the same time. We had a small wedding and we wanted it to be spiritual but non-denominational - she customized the ceremony to be exactly what we wanted and incorporated all the elements we wanted. We took the Platinum Package and did not use the counseling part. But Dr. Wright understood how busy we were and offered two free marriage counseling appointments – good for one year. She is very supportive and helpful. She even picked up our certified marriage license from the courthouse and couriered it to our house. She was very considerate.

Joe Daoud Martin was several times guest teacher at our El Haddawi International Winter School in Bavaria/ South Germany and at other cccasions. His qualitiy as a teacher and also as a spiritual adviser was outstanding. Joe is extremely knowledgale about various spiritual tradition and has the sensitivity and delicacy to draw on them in his work without being fanatic or having a missionary approach. To my opinion he is a perfect person to serve communities as an interfaith minister.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
