Introduction: "Norm was absolutely wonderful! We contacted him 2 weeks before our wedding date, and he got back to us within a couple of hours. We changed our date days before due to rain, and he was super flexible and worked with us. He was warm and personable, and I felt like we had known him for years as he walked us through our “I do’s.” He was sweet and professional. We couldn’t have picked a better officiant had we planned years in advance. His fees were very reasonable. I just can’t express my gratitude to and satisfaction with Norm. He was wonderful ❤️." RATES: vary depending on day of week, time of day and miles driven. ($195 - $375) I offer 20% ACTIVE MILITARY DISCOUNT. 10+ years experience as a Christian associate pastor and 17+ years as a wedding officiant - currently in Nashville, TN. (I am available to travel as well.) facebook.com/normmcdonaldweddingofficant Google: Nashville Wedding Officiant - Norm McDonald nashville-wedding-officiant-norm-mcdonald.business.site I will treat your ceremony as a unique celebration with great attention to your desires and preferences.

We had a very little wedding in a not so private venue so we were nervous on how things were gonna go. Needless to say, Norm was the perfect officiant for us! Very fun and easy going, set us both calm and had fun during the ceremony. Definitely a moment we'll treasure for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much, Norm!

My husband and I found Norm on Thumbtack and messaged him to ask if he would be able to provide both premarital counseling and officiant services for us. He promptly responded to us in the positive and, once we had decided to use his services, he quickly provided us with details about the materials we would need for counseling. As this was in the midst of the 2020-21 pandemic, he was very flexible and allowed us to do counseling virtually. He worked with us both over Skype and over Zoom video chatting services. We were very happy with his professional but warm and kind demeanor during our counseling sessions, and even more pleased with his officiating on our wedding day. When our wedding ceremony had a few mishaps (such as when our unity candle blew out during our unity candle ceremony and we had to relight it - oops), he saved the day with just a few spontaneous words that lightened the mood and relieved the pressure and dismay we felt. He added to our day so much, and afterward at the reception, everyone commented on what a great job he did and what a nice person he was - including both my parents and my husband's parents. We could not have had such a wonderful start to our marriage without Norm's help.

Details: Wedding • Christian • 151 - 200 guests • Help writing vows will be needed • English • Officiant will be needed at the rehearsal

Officiant Norm was the best! We had a small, casual wedding in October 2020 at Twin Falls in Rock Island. W're so grateful that Norm was happy to make the drive to officiate our wedding. He was also so friendly, kind, talkative, and personable. We couldn't have picked a better person to do the job! 10/10 recommend.

FAQs

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

    My pricing will depend on the time of day, distance to be driven and day of the week. I give a 20% military discount for anyone still serving. Pricing starts at $145.00 (Weekday late morning or early afternoon.)

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

    I like to set up a phone interview and offer a personal meeting with the bride and groom to discuss ceremony style, additional elements if any and location.

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

    I was on staff as an associate pastor for ten years in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
