Wedding Officiant ~ Ceremonies ~ Rehearsals ~ Elopements

Rev. F. Daniel Latour

Over 20 years of service in Lafayette and surrounding area.


Hello and thank you for visiting. 

At your chosen venue, the fee for officiating is $160 or $180 which includes preparation, officiating, filing the Certificate of Marriage with the Court and travel time. If your venue or coordinator will not direct a rehearsal and you need me, the fee for both the rehearsal and wedding is $300. 


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


The quality of the ceremony sets the tone for a wonderful day.
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, Dan's ceremonies average 20 minutes from walk-in to walk-out, depending on the number in the wedding party and chosen options. Once booked, a Ceremony Planner will be sent to design your ceremony. He will also send reminders, helpful hints and a basic timeline you can use to plan your wedding day. 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.
