Secular Officiants in DC?
My fiance and I have been trying to research if there are ways to have a friend officiate our wedding next fall. My research has lead to discouraging results regarding the actual opportunities of having a secular wedding (and NOT using a stranger) in DC. Also, if we chose a “close to secular” route, I’ve heard mixed reviews regarding online ministry services being accepted in the DC area. The DC marriage bureau seems to require that a member of the same ministry, who is already registered in DC, vouch for our chosen person. Does anyone have recent experience or advice? Any ULC minister volunteers for such a thing?
Or, does anyone have alternative suggestions. We have a lovely venue selected, so we would prefer not to just use the courthouse option, if we can avoid it. We have time to explore alternatives, and would love your thoughts.
