"Pastor Steve was phenomenal! From the beginning to the end he was invested in our marriage, which was important to us. This could have been an issue, especially, because we live in Los Angeles. Thank you for Skype! Along with him officiating our wedding, we had premarital counseling with him weekly. Due to time restrictions we were unable to finish before our wedding, but will finish in the upcoming weeks. The day of our wedding Pastor Steve was punctual and arrived with his wife. His wife Ann was also included in the counseling and vow process. Our wedding went smooth and afterwards we signed our marriage certificate and Pastor Steve and his wife mailed them in for us. Thanks! During this process Ann was so cute with making sure there were photos and that everything was filled out correctly. Why we would recommend Pastor Steve to other couples: 1. His rate -he is affordable and will tell you it is not about the money, but being able to bless other couples (FYI - he has NEVER had a couple get a divorce in which he had officiated) 2. Invested -him and his wife are both invested in your relationship, they want you to be successful 3. Accommodating -Pastor Steve is super easy going and actually listens! You want this process to be the simple and you want to feel you know the person who is marrying you to make it more intimate. -I refer back to many of our lessons and looking forward to lunch with him and his wife in the future. Thank you Pastor Steve and Ms. Ann for being an intricate part of our wedding. #meettheseales"

"My wedding with Meagan was her first officiating experience. She worked with my wife and I to ensure we were thrilled with the ceremony readings, examined all small details, and retained a very professional demeanor throughout the process. From planning to ceremony she was full of smiles and cheer, everything you could ask of a wedding officiant."

"Steve was the officiant at my wedding on Dec. 22, 2014. Months prior to the big day, he took the time to meet with me and my fiancé, as I wanted to make sure we hired someone who we felt comfortable with and confident that they would officiate the type of ceremony we wanted. We spent almost 2 hours talking to Steve that day we all met. He listened to our life stories, our upbringings, our trials and tribulations we had gone through and the story of how our love came to be. He also shared with us his life story, his current church in which he is a pastor at and the love story of him and his wife. My fiancé and I felt very well bonded with Steve by the end of our meeting; it felt like we were chatting and catching up with an old time good friend. Steve is very personable, friendly, outgoing and vivacious. A very lovely personality, indeed! A fun person to talk and have coffee with. I knew EXACTLY what I wanted for our ceremony, for I had written it all up myself. I gave him a copy of it, he looked it over and agreed that it was very well put together and that he'd have no problem officiating the ceremony exactly as I had written it. On the day of, he not only kept to the ceremony I had written, but he also threw in some wonderful points of humor, jokes very personalized to my fiancé and I, which he was only able to do because of the time he spent really getting to know us. I would most definitely recommend Pastor Steve to anyone who is looking for an officiant who won't just merely perform your ceremony, but who will take the time to really get to know the couple beforehand, therefore allowing the couple to have a very special, unique and fun ceremony personalized to them and their personalities! Having him perform our wedding ceremony truly made our special day even more special! Thanks Steve!"

"After the officiant that we hired cancelled on us one week before our wedding, we called Jeana and she agreed to officiate our wedding. I immediately felt more comfortable with her than with our previous officiant. She forgot that we wrote our own vows, but once we reminded her she made sure that we exchanged them! She was absolutely wonderful and we would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding officiant. "

"John is a polished and engaging public speaker with a sharp sense of humor and an incredible ability to connect with others- whether it be family, friends or complete strangers! For that reason (and countless others), choosing John as our wedding officiant was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. After our April wedding, my husband and I had so many family and friends (including some of our vendors on-site!) tell us our ceremony was one of the most beautifully done ceremonies they’d ever witnessed. John delivered a powerful message about marriage that was tailored perfectly for my husband and me, as John had met with us many times before the wedding. During these meetings, we were able to walk John through what kind of service we wanted (length, tone), what kind of vows would be meaningful to us, etc. I also appreciate that John asked us to describe how we met and tell him stories about the milestones in our relationship (some of which were hinted at in his ceremony address and caused lighthearted chuckles throughout the audience). Prior to the wedding, John prepared us for what to expect day-of and also provided premarital counseling by recommending books, asking open ended questions, and recommending little things we could do to stay in tune with each other throughout the journey of married life. John went above and beyond in his officiant and counselor duties and I could not recommend him enough!"

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.
