Wedding Officiant for Your Ceremony or Elopement

Serving Lafayette Louisiana and surrounding parishes over 20 years.

Rev F. Daniel Latour

A preferred officiant for many venues, Dan's ceremonies average 20 minutes from walk-in to walk-out, depending on the number in the wedding party and selected options. Once booked, a Ceremony Planner will be sent to design your ceremony. If appropriate, he will also send reminders, helpful hints and a basic timeline you can use for the wedding and reception. When he arrives, Dan will help line up and coordinate the wedding party so you can relax and enjoy a smooth, beautiful wedding ~ even if unable to rehearse. 

CEREMONY AT YOUR VENUE – $180.00   Ceremony & Rehearsal - $350.00 (includes deposit)
Elopements or Small Ceremony at The Cottage - $100.00 or $300.00  -see below

The Ceremony flat fee includes ceremony options, preparation, travel, officiating and filing documents. It does not includes a rehearsal. However, you will have a ceremony outline to help in working with vendors and conducting a rehearsal. The balance is due two weeks before the ceremony, or cash only when I arrive. For ceremony with rehearsal, the balance is due two weeks before services.

If you do not have a coordinator or the venue cannot direct the rehearsal, I can be hired to do so. I do not attend rehearsal dinners.

You can also call (337)255-5244 
or email

The quality of the ceremony sets the tone for the entire day. 

An experienced, professional Officiant will usually offer the better ceremony with more options.

Dan will also help coordinate when he arrives to ensure all goes well, and can be hired to direct a full rehearsal if needed.
