Wedding Officiant for  Ceremonies ~ Rehearsals ~ Elopements

For over 20 years "Rev. Dan" has been creating treasured memories in

Lafayette, Iberia, Acadia, Vermilion, St Martin and St Landry parishes.


Rev F. Daniel Latour

Hello and thank you for visiting. 

    At your chosen venue, my Officiant fee is $160 and includes an optional meeting, preparation, travel time, officiating and filing the Certificate of Marriage with the Court. If you do not have a coordinator or the venue cannot direct a rehearsal, my fee for both rehearsal and wedding is $300.

    For those wanting a very small or budget friendly ceremony, see below for elopements and small weddings at my Lafayette cottage



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 rehearsal, if needed.


    A preferred officiant for many venues, Dan's ceremonies average 15-25 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 and beautiful wedding ~ even if you are unable to rehearse.
