Over the years we have met with thousands of engaged couples, many of whom have asked, “Why do you think you are the best fit to conduct our wedding ceremony?” If we are being totally honest, we don’t actually know if we are the best fit, but we can tell you that we are not the best choice if…
1) You’re searching for an Officiant based on price alone.
We are not suggesting that budget is not a consideration when choosing the person who will be most visible (but not nearly as beautiful as the bride) during your ceremony. However, there are other officiating companies that charge less than EP, and so they should. So, if you are making your decision based on price alone, we are not the best fit for you. Remember the adage, “You get what you pay for.”
2) You’re looking for someone to simply say a few words.
A wedding ceremony requires an experienced professional to help reduce the stress that most couples feel when thinking about their ceremony. Any licensed officiant can sign a piece of paper, but we want to create a memorable wedding experience for all and ensure that everything runs smoothly so you can enjoy your ceremony to the fullest.
3) You don’t want to spend time creating a unique and personal ceremony.
We enjoy working with couples who want a invest time discussing and creating a truly personal and unique wedding ceremony. When the last cupcake is eaten, and the last dance danced, we want your guests to say yours was the best wedding they have ever been to!
4) You don’t care who your officiant is.
We take the time to listen! We invest time to meet with each couple to hear and understand their vision for their ceremony. We want to get to know who you are as a couple so that we can offer suggestions that will help you tell your love story, make your guests feel included and connect all the moving parts of your ceremony.
5) You don’t care about what other couples say.
Read reviews. Professional Officiants have reviews posted by couples on third-party review sites such as WeddingWire, Google or Facebook. Look at the number of reviews posted as well as what couples have written. Because ultimately, that is how the officiant will interact with you and how s/he will conduct your ceremony.
If however, you do not think any of these things, and you want your wedding ceremony to be personal, unique and memorable for you and your guests, then we probably are a good fit for you and we should talk! Inquire About an Officiant Now and let’s begin the conversation.
