Need an Officiant!

Hi all,
Our wedding is in May and the last thing I really need to do is find an officiant!  We would like someone who is easygoing, experienced, light hearted...neither of us are affiliated with any particular regligion so it will not be a particularly regligious ceremony.  I've looked on theknot and on yelp.com but haven't had much luck.  Please let me know if you've had any wonderful experiences with someone or know of anyone!!! :)

Thank you!

  • Forgot to mention-wedding will be in Pleasanton/Livermore area. :)
  • Hi! 
     We are also getting married in that area. Not till 2013... but my venue... suggested Patrick Doohan at [email protected] He is not religious, and supposed to be fun. I thought his rates were 
    very reasonable. He was only 400 bucks for everything... We haven't met him yet.... 
    But I LOVE the wedding planner at my venue... and so far everyone he 
    suggested has been GREAT. 
  • California has this deputized-for-a-day program. Like being ordained online to officiate at weddings, a friend of the couple can be deputized at the county seat to officiate at 1 wedding. Read about it here:

    In addition, Alameda County will let you do this by mail, if you have an out of town friend or relative.
  • We used Rod Murcray from Itheewed.  Nice, down to earth guy who did a great job for our non-denominational wedding.  $350.  Here's the website for info:  www.itheewed.info
