Find a Wedding Minister

Our wedding venue is the ideal location for a dream wedding, plus we have excellent wedding ministers.
What is a Wedding Minister?
One important thing to know is that you must have a certificate of authority to solemnize marriages in Las Vegas (Clark County, NV) . How can you select an officiant that will be able to provide you with a lasting fond memory of your wedding day? The Little Vegas Chapel provides wedding minister for all types of weddings. While getting married by the King is fun and exciting, it’s not for everyone. Our officiants can provide you with a traditional wedding ceremony for a modern, elegant wedding. If you have special requests for our officiant, we ask that you please let us know prior to your actual ceremony. Having enough time to prepare for a wedding is ideal for ministers as they work hard to make each wedding unique.
Here are some things to consider about various types of ministers, so you can start to narrow down your list:
- Celebrant – This minster will perform a religious or secular ceremony. Normally the celebrant is an ordained clergy member or a judge.
- Religious – A religious minister is a perfect idea for anyone wanting a religious ceremony with their soon-to-be spouse. If you want a faith-based ceremony, we would recommend using a religious minister.
- Secular – A secular clergy member does not need to belong to a religious entity to perform the ceremony. Normally, secular wedding minister will perform interfaith weddings and same-sex marriages.
- Interfaith – An interfaith wedding minister will focus on bringing religions together if you and your partner are of different beliefs. Some ministers like to perform the ceremony in a church while others are happy to come to your home or venue you will be hosting your ceremony.
- Civil – A civil wedding minister will need to register at the County Clerk’s office for a certificate of authority to solemnize marriages. Hiring a civil officiant is one of the easiest ways to have your wedding ceremony the way you want it!
- Friend or Family – We do have a lot of couples come into our Las Vegas wedding chapel and ask about our packages. We do accommodate several couples, and we can custom create a wedding day special just for you! Being married by a close friend or family member can help to strengthen your friendship and give your special day that personal touch. This is a great opportunity to have someone who knows you and your love story to perform your ceremony. It is fairly easy to get ordained as well so your friend or family member should not have an issue being legally licensed to perform and sign your paperwork for you!
Why You Need a Marriage License in Nevada
When it comes to Las Vegas weddings, the state of Nevada has certain rules that must be followed for the wedding to be legally recognized. Our minister will sign the marriage license, thereby showing the marriage is valid in all 50 states and every country around the world.
