Austin & Temple Area Wedding Officiant and Minister Services
We offer a FREE initial consultation (Facetime, Skype, or phone); this allows you to determine if our services are what you are looking for in your wedding officiant. We are available weekdays, evenings, or weekends for FREE consultations. In most cases, all follow up questions can be addressed via email, phone, or text.
Wedding officiant services in Austin, Dripping Springs, the Hill Country, and Central Texas can vary greatly and we want the bride and grooms we serve to receive the level of attention their important day deserves. Regrettably some couples have chosen their officiant solely based on price, and then days or even hours before the ceremony have been “left at the altar.”

(We generally arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the ceremony start time.) In most cases for full ceremony services the rate is only $300.00 – $400.00, there are some cases where it is less (based on day of the week, time and location – Also, see the two other tabs on our site for our Elopement Ceremonies.

“What is the purpose of a rehearsal?” The primary purpose of the rehearsal is to ensure the wedding party knows where to stand during the ceremony. In the majority of cases, the bridal party will be lined up, a walk through of the processional and recessional, and some basic instructions are provided. Where to stop for the Giving away the Bride, the basic elements of the ceremony, the ring exchange, unity ceremony.
There are many coordinators and wedding planners that have great experience with coordinating the rehearsal, in those cases, do not hire two people for the same job (both the planner and I Do Ceremonies is not required). Some venues have day of coordinators that provide excellent service and our services are not needed for the rehearsal. Some venues include this level of service: Silo and Oak, The Terrace Club, Canyonwood Ridge, Vista West Ranch, Vintage Villas, Hummingbird House to name a few. In most cases, we are not needed for rehearsals (less than 10% of couples need this service after seeing our detailed approach, or if they have a coordinator or planner assisting them).
If you do not have a wedding coordinator, do not worry, we have coordinated hundreds of rehearsals ensuring every detail is covered and we can assist. The rehearsal is generally conducted a few days before the wedding ceremony, or the same day based on availability of all parties. For convenience, the rehearsal may take place at any location (we have performed rehearsals at city parks, restaurants, hotel lobbies, and backyards).
Rehearsal rates vary depending on location, time and day of the week ($125.00 – $300.00). Contact for rate.
