Wedding Officiant

Pastor Ed performed a wonderful ceremony for us. He was flexible, kind and entertaining. We eloped so it was just Pastor Ed, my husband and me. He graciously joined us for lunch and he seemed like family. I can’t recommend him enough, he made our special day even more special.

Wedding Officiant

Pastor Ed was very friendly and nice. He made me and my now husband very at ease and comfortable. I just want to thank him so much for being able to make our special day, even at short notice. Thank you so much again!!! ☺️☺️☺️

Wedding Officiant

Pastor Rudiger was willing to work with us on very short notice, performed a short but very professional and faith-based service which was exactly what we wanted. We could not have asked for a better person to officiate our wedding. Absolute perfection!!

Charming and flexible. He taught me how to effectively convey information to the people that I give presentations to in both a casual and professional setting

Wedding Officiant

Pastor Ed was a perfect choice for our wedding officiant. He led a great ceremony that incorporated our family and he was super responsive and helpful when we reached out to him throughout the planning stages. Cannot overstate how great he is.

Background Check

James Rudiger


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

    My price varies depending on the required travel. Excluding driving expenses, my fee is $100.

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

    I like to make initial contact on the telephone. If counseling is desired, we'll set up a date for meeting. For weddings that don't involve counseling, most of our work can be done online, although I'm open to personal meetings.

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

    I'm a graduate of Union Theological Seminary in Virginia and have been an ordained Presbyterian minister for about 30 years. During that time, I'm officiated 100s of weddings, but I've never done the same service twice. I've developed a system by which couples can create their own weddings. I'm licensed to officiate services in West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
