Rev. F. Daniel Latour       fully vaccinated

Over 20 years creating happy memories


Hello and thank you for visiting. 

At your chosen venue, the flat fee for officiating the ceremony is $160 or $180 allowing for  preparation, travel, officiating and filing the Certificate of Marriage with the Court. If you do not have a coordinator or planner and need me to direct the rehearsal,  my combined fee is $300.


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.


A preferred officiant at many venues in this five parish area, Dan's ceremonies are about 20 minutes from walk-in to walk-out, depending on the number in the wedding party and special options. Once booked, a Planning Form will be sent to design the ceremony. He will also send reminders, suggestions and a basic timeline you can use to plan your reception. When he arrives, Dan will help line-up and coordinate ceremony vendors you can relax and enjoy a smooth and beautiful wedding ~ even if you are unable to rehearse. He also offers elopements and small weddings at his cottage (see below).

For better service, please use the Contact form for a detailed response. You can also call (337)255-5244 No texting please.
