What is a Wedding Officiant?

Let’s start with a definition: A wedding officiant is an individual who performs acts of marriage.  Their main responsibility is to witness the consent of the intended spouses for the wedding license and hence validate the marriage or civil union for legal purposes.  They could be a judge, an ordained minister, or someone you met at the mall, as long as they have the credentials to perform a ceremony is your chosen city, county and state.

Wow! That sounds official.  Let’s make things a little more simple.  At The Relationship Firm, we believe that your wedding officiant is the person who ensures that your ceremony is a true symbol of “he” and “she” “becoming we.”  Whether you are eloping with the two of you or planning an affair for 500+, your ceremony should reflect your belief in and love for each other.
