Non Religious Officiant

Hi Ladies,

I am running into some trouble here and don't quite know what to do.
My fiance is not a religious person, although we both come from very catholic families. I am not very religious myself but my fiance is to the extreme where he wants no mention of god in the ceremony or at least have it kept to a minimum. I don't want to have just anybody do our ceremony and I know our families really would like a priest but would it be wrong to ask them to keep it less religious?
Or if not does anyone have any suggestions who would be more flexibile with this type of thing.
Please let me know I am not sure how to approach this situation and don't really want to ask my family.

    We used Bill Proud, who actually used to be a priest.  He ended up leaving the priesthood so he could marry.  He did a great job, and works with you to plan the ceremony you want.

    I've heard great things about him so I'm definitely going to give him a call.
