wedding couple

Congratulations! You're getting married and the planning has begun. South Dakota Wedding Officiants is a professional, experienced and flexible service designed to cater to your specific ceremonial needs on your wedding day. We offer Formal and Informal services for weddings both large and small! I have been an ordained minister since 2001 & have officiated hundreds of weddings since 2006 in South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa. Weddings are as individual as the couples getting married and finding the right Officiant is an important part of the over-all wedding experience!

Whether this is your first marriage or love found at last, the content and feel of your ceremony is a direct reflection of who you are as individuals and as a couple. I offer traditional and contemporary ceremony formats that can be tailored to fit your exact needs on your wedding day. You may choose the length of your service in addition to the style and the verbiage. I have many options to choose from and can incorporate any readings, songs, prayers and other creative elements that you wish to add to personalize & bring meaning to your special day for you and your loved ones.

As an Officiant, I believe flexibility is key in providing a meaningful experience for the diverse community that we live in. Below are some of the many options that you have to choose from to tailor your ceremony to fit perfectly with your personal beliefs and vision for your wedding day.

Types of Ceremonies Offered

  • Religious
  • Spiritual
  • Non-Religious
  • Celtic Handfasting
  • Candle/Sand Ceremonies
  • Theme Weddings
  • Civil Ceremonies
  • Traditional
  • Non-Traditional
  • Spanish Ceremonies

For formal affairs, I recommend booking an Officiant early. Just like booking your perfect venue, booking an Officiant is an important part of the wedding planning to reserve your specific date & time. Once you officially reserve your date and time, that space will be unavailable for other couples and will be taken off of the calendar. For informal events that require less scheduling, my schedule is flexible with daytime & evening hours.

I also perform civil unions and informal weddings at a location of your choice or directly at the Minnehaha Courthouse as well as at out-of-town venues (mileage rates will apply).
