My Fiance - the Officiant

No, not for our own wedding. I don't think you can do that. On Saturday, my fiance officiated the wedding of our good friends, Tom and Hannah.

It was a beautiful, casual beach wedding. Absolutey perfect. And I must say that my fiance did a wonderful job. And I'm not just saying that because he's my fiance. It was seriously one of the most beautiful wedding ceremonies I have ever seen.

They asked him to be their officiant almost a year ago when they got engaged. They paid for him to become a notary and in Florida, that's all you need to be to perform a wedding. I was way too busy trying to make up for a terrible wedding coordinator to take pictures (more on that later), but here is a sampling of pictures I have found from other guests.

My fiance is on the left, with the Bible in his hand...don't you love the casual attire?

And here is the beautiful bride! And if you look close, you can see me in light blue in the background, behind the dingbat wedding coordinator and her assistant. Definately more to come about them later. This is about the time I ducked behind the bush so I wouldn't be in all the pictures. I can't say the same for the dingbats...but isn't the bride beautiful??

It was such a beautiful wedding. I loved the personal touch with having my fiance, one of their close friends, officiate the wedding.

Who are you choosing to officiate your wedding?


  1. We are wanting Mr. FF fellow firefighters who is also a preacher. I really hope he does it. It would be awesome and so personal.

  2. My fiance's dad is a minister, so he's going to be the one to marry us! I love that it's someone who knows us so well!

  3. Nick's old youth pastor officiated ours.

    I love that wedding! Man, sometimes I wish I would have listened to Nick and had a beach wedding. ;) I would have loved to have heard Nathan. (it's rare that I get to hear him be serious and sincere ya know)
