OFFICIANTS

Why Use Us?

Every one of us at A/T Entertainment Event Group is ordained and can provide officiant services for your wedding. Our goal is to provide a seamless and stress-free experience by offering ceremonial duties as an ordained officiant through the American Marriage Ministries. We source our ministry through non-denominational Judo-Christian teachings, and our mission and insight is focused on how human beings should treat each other; with respect and dignity. When it comes to marriage, we strive to fulfill a spiritual need that other institutions may not be willing to, or unable to provide; access to marriage for all, regardless of religion, sexuality, or other defining traits. Many of us believe it is your inalienable right to choose the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, and equally so, we have many people with all types of backgrounds that are best fit to bless that union! We provide our best efforts to ensure a seamless and pleasant experience from the first meetings even up until after the "I do's". Below are some frequently asked questions and information about our services and legality. 

Our Services

Our officiants agree to write a custom wedding ceremony script and/or wedding vows for the couple. The couple can request up to 2 script revisions to ensure the ceremony is performed to their expectations. We are well versed in multiple ceremony practices like handfasting, knot tying, sand unity, etc, and will be sure to include whichever ceremonial practices, religious or secular traditions you want to incorporate into your ceremony. 

Our officiants will also attend the rehearsal ceremony for up to one hour, dressed in casual attire, and help organize the flow.  

We will also confirm the couple’s identity and intent to marry and complete the marriage license. This service and signing of the marriage license are included with the ceremony! The couple must provide two adult witnesses by state law. 

Average Cost: $375-$700

Our cost: $300 (taxes and travel not included)
