I am asked often the difference between a wedding minister and a wedding officiant. Although I hear the question often, it is a very good question.
In short, anyone who resides over a wedding and pronounces the couple married is an officiant. That man or woman could very well be a minister but not necessarily. They could be an attorney, and judges, justice of the peace, a chaplain, or simply a friend of the family.
Most people today still prefer a “minister” or “pastor.” Most couples still view the wedding ceremony as a spiritual event as well as a civil event. For that reason, I love to perform weddings because I view the event as a way to ask God to honor ad bless this relationship for years to come.
There is a new wedding photographer on the scene in Phoenix. Amy and Jordan Demos. Great couple with fantastic ability. Check them out!
I love Regale! No better wedding venue for the money. None. I love working with Tony and Linda as well.
Looking for a North Scottsdale “feel” for a lot less money? Bam! Welcome to Regale!
I’ve done many weddings at the Biltmore (one of the finest wedding venues in the valley) but I can’t remember the flowers being so perfect. Wow. As a guy I don’t think much of flowers, until that day. Wow!
We went from strangers to best friends in 30 minutes. I am so glad God brought us together for this very unique wedding on top of the HILTON on 7th street.
They personify true love and God’s provision.
After 25 years of awesome marriage together, Loretta surprised Ron with a renewal ceremony on May 5th. Very moving. Very special. Great people.
I will remember them for years!
My first wedding at Wrigley Mansion. I hope I do more here. I love everything about this place. Awesome couple too.
