While it’s easy to get caught up in the pretty details of a wedding like the decor, music, and the dress, choosing a wedding officiant is arguably the most important booking you need to make for your wedding.

After all, without an officiant you can’t get married! Though an officiant may not be one of the pinterest-worthy parts of a wedding, the right officiant can ensure your wedding ceremony is just as beautiful as every other part of the big day.
