"Rev. Scott Kerschner was every thing we we're looking for in an officiant and then some. He helped to create a ceremony for our wedding on 10/08/16 that was prefect for us. He attended and ran our rehearsal dinner and showed up several hours early on the day of our wedding. He is very personable and professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant."

"We hired TWM to officiate our wedding. We were able to choose our officiant and meet with him to discuss the details of the wedding in advance. Unfortunately, a week before our wedding the officiant that we chose had an emergency and had to go our of town and could not perform our wedding. TWM provided us with an alternative officiant, Pastor Richard and he was very good."

"Tanya is AMAZING! She was on top of her role as our officiant. She was quick to respond and help us with any questions or concerns during our planning. She made sure our ceremony readings were custom to us. She extended herself and made sure we were happy and worry-free before during and after our wedding day. I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thank you Tanja"

"Due to cost and personal medical reasons, my dream wedding had to be delayed and scrunched down into a modest last minute ceremony at a family members home with only two weeks to plan. It was already a last minute situation of "bride panic" on my end and we had decided to share it with family and friends via skype. No one was willing to officiate on Christmas Eve, but Kenny said "no problem," as he was going to do it via Skype and be done in half hour. Turns out we had a major glitch the morning of the wedding as we tested the Skype connections. The issue was on our end and was going to take time to resolve. I became a frantic, crying bride very quickly. There would be no wedding without an officiator. Kenny calmed me down, and said no worries. Kenny dropped everything, grabbed his suit, jumped in the car and drove to us to personally officiate. Kenny literally save my wedding day. He never mentioned the excruciating back pain he was having, never brought up money, but just got in his car and made the 400 mile round trip on Christmas Eve to save my wedding. Now, that is "over and beyond" exceptional service. How many people would go that far out of their way, on a major holiday just to officiate a wedding? Kenny! I had written a script for the ceremony as I wanted music played halfway through the service. However, again we had technical issues, and Kenny never missed a beat. Ever the professional, he kept the ceremony moving along so that the unplanned glitches were not glaring issues. The ceremony went much more smoothly than it should have gone. Kenny is so professional and can work under pressure. As I was panicking and forgetting my place with the distractions, he kept the whole thing running smoothly, quietly feeding us a line when needed. We are personally so grateful to him for literally saving our wedding day with the lengths he was willing to go to for my most special day. He never let the back pain stop him from making the round trip, nor letting it show on his face or affect his duties. Again ever the professional. He was just EXCELLENT under pressure, calming a frantic bride, and keeping the day about me and what I needed. My husband and I absolutely recommend Kenny, and our knowledge that you will be fully satisfied with whatever type of ceremony you choose. From your initial planning contact with Kenny, you will feel like you are working with an old friend, and will love his outgoing personality and professionalism. If you need guidance or ideas he is equally talented with organization and creativity. He provided me with ideas for my vows which got me started and wound up becoming very loving and personalized. He didn't hesitate as I emailed him my 3 page itinerary of how I wanted the ceremony to flow. Even with the glitches on our end, it never affected his service. He is extremely articulate. We had totally forgotten a microphone, yet he was able to speak up and enunciate clearly for those watching via ooVoo (we finally got that working last minute instead of Skype). Those that were finally able to watch and hear our ceremony later told me how they were able to hear him clearly and were impressed Kenny's officiating. You WILL NOT be disappointed if you choose Kenny to officiate your wedding. He is the best and I promise that starting with your initial contact with him, to the end of the ceremony, you will be working with an experienced professional. So whether you choose a large or small ceremony, Kenny is and a wonderful, reliable and compassionate choice for your wedding officiant. "

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.
