How to choose a officiant for your LGBTQ wedding ceremony

Posted on 29 June, 2017 at 20:01
As a non-denominational officiant I have had the pleasure  and honor in serving all blends of couples who have wedded.  My experience is that couples across the board including LGBTQ couples have many similarities when planning their wedding as "traditional" weddings . I emphasize the word traditional because for years the country placed man and a woman as the only couples getting marrying titling them bride and groom (this still could be to your wedding, but it is not necessary  always the case in LGBTQ weddings).  I personally never fit  within the "traditional" mold  and it was very important  to my calling as a non denominational pastor to  be all inclusive and reach all couples of all diversities.   For me it's about honoring everyone's partner of choice for  their marriage however they identify themselves.

Wedding officiant, pastor, reverend, clergy, ect is a  required and  important piece of your upcoming marriage ceremony. I believe it is my responsibility to honor you as an individual and as a couple within your specific ceremony. 

In this day and age very often I am interviewed via the phone and emails vs a in personal interview regarding my services and who I am to the couple making the decision (I realize very often my couples are from out of state and time is of essence in making their decision. Personally I have become very comfortable with this process.)

First and foremost if you have the time I would encourage you to meet the officiant you are making a decision about.

I have written an article Officiant 101 that further discuss this subject.

Please do not hesitate to call or email me with any personal questions when considering me for your wedding.

Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!!!
