Finding an officiant was pretty high on my list once we secured our wedding date. No officiant, no ceremony, no wedding, right? So Mr. Feather and I set out to find a relatable non-denominational officiant with a great speaking voice who was comfortable performing a secular ceremony.

First, several folks I know who wanted a secular wedding asked a friend to get ordained online and got them to do the job. If you’re looking to go this route, check the laws in your state/country and make sure ministers ordained online are allowed to preside over wedding ceremonies. This is legal in Washington state, but we decided not to pursue this idea since our friends aren’t the type who get excited about public speaking.
