Our Wedding Ceremony Officiant Services and Fees

"Heart to heart communication" is more than just our logo. It is our calling. We are so passionate about what we do that if we could do it for free, we would! Within your wedding budget checklist, you have a choice about whom you want to work with for your important ceremony. We appreciate your choosing OBX Wedding Officiants. No one has more enthusiasm for the Outer Banks of North Carolina and beach destination weddings in OBX, NC! And considering all that we do for you, no one else is more affordable!

Our CARE (Compassion, Acceptance, Respect, and Enthusiasm) orientation will be obvious from our first conversation. Thank you for choosing OBX Wedding Officiants, your local source for spiritual, nondenominational celebrations. Remember that while the officiant may be the least expensive element of your destination wedding cost, the officiant sets the heart-felt tone of your ceremony! Our destination wedding packages for officiating include:
