Any suggestions on a officiant?

Hi,

I am kind of new to this but I'm going to get it a shot.

We are trying to find someone to do our wedding. We would like to keep it simple and short. We're looking at a non-denominational/religious based wedding because I'm Lutheran and he is Mennonite.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

    you can have a friend or relative take a online course (they are really easy and only take a few days at most to complete) the cost usually runs between $50-200 but its better than having a priest or someone you dont know mess up your names or worse on your wedding day!

    I just booked with a judge in the county that our ceremony will be held at.  I thought that was a good option as we were looking for the same things you were.  Most of them have very reasonable fees, too.

    We are using Pastor Joseph Karge. He is AMAZING. He is non-demonimal, as we are both Catholic, but didn't want to do a traditional church wedding. He has endless ideas, and ways to incorporate anything that is important to you and your FI. Check out Forever Ministries.

    I am using Pastor Joseph Karge also.  He has tons of great ideas and is non denominational.
