Because Virginia has some of the most restrictive laws in the country regarding who can legally perform a marriage, it’s essential that you hire an officiant or wedding minister that is authorized to perform marriages. Unlike other states where the ability to solemnize a marriage only requires a quick ordination online, Virginia does not allow internet-ordained ministers to be authorized.
Any minister who wishes to be authorized to perform marriages in Virginia must first apply at a Virginia Circuit Court and, if approved, receives an official letter of authorization from the court. All of the professional officiants and ministers on our team are legally authorized by the court system in Virginia, so you can rest assured that working with us will mean your ceremony will be amazing and your marriage will be legal!
