Wedding Officiant  ~ Rehearsals  ~ Elopements  ~ Small Venue


Rev. F. Daniel Latour 

Over 20 years creating happy memories


Hello. Thank you for visiting. Here you will find lots of useful information to plan your wedding. Be sure to check out the links at the bottom of this page.

I am a preferred officiant at many area venues. Ceremonies run 17 to 30 minutes from walk-in to walk-out, depending on the number of attendants and any special options you can choose from.


The fee for officiating the ceremony at the venue you choose is $160 to $200, based on time allowed for  preparation, travel , officiating and filing the Certificate of Marriage with the Clerk of Court. If you do not have a coordinator or planner, I can direct a rehearsal and officiate the ceremony for $300.


Once booked, a Ceremony Planning Form will be sent to choose options. Once completed and returned, the order of the ceremony will be sent. Closer to the wedding I will also email you reminders and suggestions including a basic timeline you can use to plan your reception activities. When I arrive for the ceremony, I can help coordinate attendants, musicians and photographers so you can relax and enjoy a smooth and beautiful wedding ~ even if you are unable to rehearse.

For better service, please use the Contact form to provide information needed for a detailed response. You can also call with a question, check availability or schedule an appointment.

Service area includes most of the Parishes of

Lafayette, Iberia, Acadia, St.Martin, St.Landry & Vermilion.
