Rev. Mark was perfect! He is the sweetest person I have ever met. He made us feel so comfortable. He met with us for a consult to discuss our vision and what we wanted. He was very professional and at the same time very personal. He gave us advice and great feedback that we appreciated. He also explained the ceremony in great detail and how a ceremony sets the tone for the wedding reception but especially for our marriage. He even helped get the wedding party organized so that we started the ceremony on time. He worked to make our families feel welcomed and comfortable. I wish that I could say more good things. We greatly recommend him!!

A wonderfully preformed simple ceremony

five star rating

Rev. Hall preformed a wonderful simple elopement ceremony customized to our preferences. He made excellent suggestions to make our experience special. Rev. Hall was very proactive in communicating to make sure we had nothing to worry us. He showed a pleasant and joyfully demeanor and we can tell he truly enjoys preforming weddings. We recommend his services to anyone seeking a simple or elaborate ceremony.

What Is a Wedding Officiant?

A wedding officiant or marriage officiant is a person who conducts a ceremony in a marriage. The officiant will typically have a religious background or a secular one, depending on where you live. You may also find some people who specialize in conducting religious ceremonies or secular weddings.

Officiants play an important role in the wedding ceremony, but what exactly do they do? Are they religious leaders or just a friend of the family? Do they have any formal training? Let’s dive in and find out.

What do wedding officiants do?

As a wedding officiant, their job is to lead the couple in the most meaningful, sacred part of their wedding day – the ceremony. They will be providing words and guidance for them as they say their vows and perform their wedding ceremony in front of witnesses.

They may also be assisting the couple in making their wedding plans by assisting them with legal documents like marriage license applications.

A wedding officiant is a very important part of the wedding planning process. They will be playing a vital role in helping you have a successful wedding.

You want someone who will provide you with a beautiful ceremony, and make you feel special. You want someone who will be there to guide you through the process of planning your wedding.

However, when you hire a wedding officiant, it is important that you find one who will work with you to plan your wedding and make it something special. Reverend Mark Hall has conducted weddings for 30 years as a justice of the peace, clergyman and Army Chaplain. You can be assured of an experienced, personable and reliable wedding officiant when you choose Rev. Mark.
