Peter’s Pointers: Choosing a Wedding Officiant – Friend or Pro?

Peter’s Pointers: Choosing a Wedding Officiant – Friend or Pro?

More and more often, couples are skipping church and getting married right at their reception venue.  Among the advantages, you can choose your own officiant.  Are professional officiants really worth the money, or are you just as well having a friend or relative get ordained online?  Your decision can have a major impact on your marriage.  I’ll explain in this edition of Peter’s Pointers for Wedding Planning.

Wedding: Irene and Robert at Tailwater Lodge, Altmar, 12/29/18

Wedding: Irene and Robert at Tailwater Lodge, Altmar, 12/29/18

My final wedding of the 2018 wedding season holds the all-time record for “latest wedding in the year.”  After all, there isn’t much room to go later than December 29!  The season wrapped up at a familiar venue — Tailwater Lodge in Altmar — with a familar couple.  Bride Irene is the sister of Martin, whose wedding I DJ’ed in 2016 (where Irene was a bridesmaid).  It’s always great to see some of the same guests again and this crowd had a great time!  Check out the photos and more in this blog post.

Wedding: Sharon and Stephen at Traditions at the Links, East Syracuse, 11/17/18

My wedding season hasn’t reached into November since 2014, but this year I had two! (And they weren’t the last ones, either!)  Sharon and Stephen’s wedding brought me back to a familiar venue, Traditions at the Links in East Syracuse.  This was a fun wedding with an amazing crowd… check out the photos and more in this blog post.

Wedding: Bethany and Brian at Highland Forest’s Skyline Lodge, Fabius, 11/3/18

Wedding: Bethany and Brian at Highland Forest’s Skyline Lodge, Fabius, 11/3/18

Throughout my wedding DJ career, I’ve kept a list of “unofficial records” in my head.  Earliest and latest wedding dates. (January 14th and December 28th, if you’re wondering.) Longest drive (east of Binghamton). Things like that.  Bethany and Brian’s wedding at Highland Forest park’s Skyline Lodge probably sets the record for earliest wedding to date.  I arrived shortly after 9:00am to set-up for a 10:30 start.  The setup was a little different than my previous weddings here — find out why in today’s blog post!
