"Skip, made it clear he thought we were on the right track by wanting to be married by a man of God and in God's house and his words were both insightful and demonstrated his faith and ours. Jack and I are very happy to have found such a man to marry us. Skip made it plain he felt it was an honor to marry us and we and our friends were happy to be married at his church, Northeast Baptist Church. Jack and I would highly recommend Skip Holman to officiate the marriage of others who want a man of faith to bring them together in God's Holy Matrimony."

"Brent was amazing! I didn't have your traditional ceremony, it was the 2nd marriage f po r both of us so we wanted something different and unique and that's exactly what we had. We had the wedding at the Whataburger Field, home of the Corpus Christi Hooks, be fore the game, we as the bride and groom wore jerseys and asked all of our guests to do the same. And as unique and personable as our venue was, so was our ceremony. Brent met with us about 3 weeks before the date and really took the time to get to know us, as we did him and he put together the most awesome, amazing and personal ceremony I could have ever asked for, it was perfect!!!

"Jon officiated our wedding in 2000. We were truly blessed by his eagerness to perform our ceremony. He went over every possible detail prior to our marriage and brought forth a level of compassion rarely seen. If one seeks someone that is not just qualified, professional and knowledgeable, but caring and thorough, Jon is it. 16 years and 6 children later, we think of our wedding day every day and are honored to still call Jon "friend". For many years an ocean has separated us, but we think of Jon and his family often and have been truly blessed by God for his presence in our lives and for the nurturing way he patiently and articulately handled our questions and ceremony. What is arguably the most fragile, special, meaningful and spiritual day of your life will be in great hands with Jon!"

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.
