How to find a wedding officiant in 2020: How online ordination makes the best officiants

Find officiant

Published: Tuesday, Jan. 28th, 2020

Have you ever spent half the day looking for your car keys only to discover that they were right in front of you the whole time (under the cable bill that you’ve been trying not to look at all week)?

In an effort to recognize how significant – and involved – the role of the wedding officiant is, we'd like to share with everyone what an officiant really does.

As couples strive to make their weddings a unique experience, many are side stepping traditional venues and inviting their guests  to unexpected places. Mountaintops, bodegas, classrooms… So in an era where e-commerce is reshaping the economy and our lives, it makes sense that forward-thinking couples are taking advantage of one of the most prominent fixtures of our modern economy: warehouses!

Published: Tuesday, Nov. 20th, 2018

Weddings are expensive and it’s important to remember that after the guests have gone home, you’ve still got bills to pay. Life goes on. There’s a reason that DIY weddings are so popular these days.  Couples want a wedding that is less expensive, and yet, still reflects who they are. 

That’s why we recommend a WTF style wedding…a Wedding That Fits. 

This is your special day and you are inviting your closest friends and family to celebrate it with you. Shouldn’t you go as big as possible where it matters to you?  To us, a WTF is created when you decide what is most important to you on your wedding day, and figure out how to make those pieces special. ...(continued)
