I am a wedding officiant and I will try to explain why the fee's are the way they are. 1 First it is much much more than 30 minutes of work if you hire a professional wedding officiant. 2. I personally have never officiated two weddings the same. Every ceremony is designed for the couple. 3. You can incorporate so many things into a ceremony. From a hand blessing, hand fasting, roses for mothers, sand ceremony, unity candle ceremony, wine ceremony and tons more including couples with children and special mentions for couples with deceased parents. 4. Your family, friends, co-workers are all watching this entire ceremony. Do you want a 5 min. ceremony they offer at the courthouse or a beautiful ceremony with memories? 5. Your officiant spends hours behind the scenes writing ceremonies, spends travel time, gas, wear and tear on the vehicle, and don't forget they have license fee's, taxes, and all related business fee's. Just like any other business. (con't)
