Wedding Officiant ~ Coordinator ~ Small Venue ~ Elopements

"The best officiant for your wedding!"
F. Daniel Latour

With over 20 years experience, "Rev. Dan" has a reputation for the best spiritual or
non-religious ceremonies, which
 sets the tone for the entire day and becomes a treasured memory. He is a preferred officiant for many venues and also hosts small private weddings at his Lafayette Cottage. Whatever the setting or style, he will help coordinate before the ceremony going above and beyond to assure all goes well. Work by email or schedule a meeting to create the beautiful service you deserve for your special day. He can also direct rehearsals...and with his experience and familiarity with most vendors, you might consider him for Day-of Wedding Coordinator.

Day-of Wedding Coordinator

You will be busier than expected with time at a premium and may need someone in charge the day of the wedding to direct and assist vendors, implement your plan and get things done at the proper time so you can enjoy the big event.  Family and friends should be guests, not staff!  For a flat fee of $650, Dan will conduct your rehearsal, officiate the ceremony, and manage the reception, creating a timeline, helping with vendor management and making sure everything goes smooth. He can suggest associate vendors to fit your budget and get things moving fast and easy for you. This is the best value!  >READ MORE
