Wedding Officiant  ~ Rehearsals  ~ Elopements  ~ Small Venue


Rev. F. Daniel Latour 

Over 20 years creating happy memories


Hello. Thank you for visiting. Be sure to check out the links at the bottom of the page to help with your planning.

For your chosen venue, $160 to $180 is the flat fee for officiating the ceremony. This allows for  preparation, travel, officiating and filing the Certificate of Marriage with the Court. If you do not have a coordinator or planner, I can direct a rehearsal and officiate the ceremony for $300.

I am a preferred officiant at many area venues and also offer small weddings at my cottage (see below). All ceremonies are 15 to 30 minutes from walk-in to walk-out, depending on the number of attendants and special options you can choose from. A
 Ceremony Planning Form will be sent and the order of the ceremony will be provided. 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, I will gladly 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 best 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.  

(337)255-5244.  To assure quality, we do not text.

Service area is 30 miles including the Parishes of

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


Rev. Dan is known  for his beautiful ceremonies

and assistance when he arrives to ensure all goes well.

     Whether you choose a civil or spiritual ceremony

it will be a treasured memory.
