What is an officiant?
“By the power vested in me, I now pronounce you .…”
Have you ever wondered what that means? What the power is and who exactly has done the vesting?
These aren’t just words, in fact, they are legal words that need to be stated. Only certain people are legally recognized to perform a wedding ceremony and make a marriage legal.
A wedding officiant is a person that meets the requirements set forth by the state to officially perform a wedding ceremony and witness the signing of the marriage license. Officiants have the knowledge on the state marriage laws and will make sure that everything is legal on their end so that you and your significant other can enjoy your forever love together.
