Matt's Wedding Ceremonies

FUN, MODERN, AND CUSTOMIZABLE.  THE ORDAINED MINISTER'S BEST FRIEND.

Unique & Fun Vibe

Lines like, "Because a happy wife is a happy life. Fortunately, she knows that happy husbands are important too!"

Modern Verbiage

Your ceremonies don't have to sound like Shakespeare. You won't hear thine, shall, thou, morrow, doth or thee.

Customizable

Your couple can choose the ceremony parts they like best. Many fun and laid-back options as well as sincere options.

Simple Process

Your couple copies/pastes their favorite selections from the ceremony documents into the ceremony outline. It's easy!

Non-Faith & Non-Denominational Options

Not every couple is on the spiritual path. Their ceremony doesn't have to be either.

Ordained Ministers Love This

Inexperienced wedding ministers often feel overwhelmed. Not any more! You've got a guide from start to finish.

The Process

This process has come together after officiating hundreds of weddings.  My goal is for this to be fun and stress-free and for your guests to tell you that your ceremony was the best they've heard.  I offer three complementary services so you have a guide from start to finish.

Testimonials

  • I got ordained online to officiate a family member's wedding and wasn't sure where to start. I found free ceremony material on the internet, but it was all so lame. Then I found Matt! The process was easy and I got lots of high fives and compliments afterward. Everyone loved it.

  • I had no idea where to begin when asked to officiate a friend's wedding and luckily found Matt's Wedding Ceremonies. The material is current and fun and the process was insanely easy. I've officiated three weddings now and they've all gone great!

  • I was thrilled when asked to officiate for two gay friends, but unsure how to and had no idea where to find a gay ceremony that would fit their personalities. Matt's Wedding Ceremony was perfect. I would highly recommend.

    Gavin P.
  • Matt's Wedding Ceremonies are a breath of fresh air. All other ceremony material I found online was dated and just didn't sound like anything that would come out of my mouth. Matt's material is fun and the process is simple. I've now officiated two weddings for family!

About

Matt-Nathanson-First-Officiant-smaller-1048x1572

Roughly half of the weddings in my town are ministered by people who get ordained online to officiate for a friend or family member. My goal is to help those online ordained ministers. If your couple looks at bridal magazines and thinks, “That’s just not us.” Then, my wedding ceremonies are probably a great fit!

My best friend asked me to officiate his wedding in 2007 and while I was honored, the process of putting his ceremony together was overwhelming. The ceremony samples I found online either sounded dated or were far too traditional or religious for him and his wife. In addition, the process of getting their approval on what I might say was inefficient and took far longer than it could have. I had to write my own material and create my own process. It was worth my effort! Officiating his wedding was a super rewarding experience and I received lots of compliments afterward. People told me that I found my calling and that I should officiate weddings for a living, and that’s what I’ve been doing ever since!

Your couple isn’t typical so their ceremony shouldn’t be either! Nonreligious and nondenominational wedding ceremonies can be fun and modern. My material has come together through trial and error after officiating hundreds of weddings since I began in 2007. The words are written in a way that makes them easy to say and my process for building a ceremony couldn’t be easier. My ceremonies don’t sound like any that guests have heard, making the experience fun for everyone involved.

You can include only those elements that are meaningful to your couple. My ceremonies can be spiritual without being religious, unite two different faiths or cultures, unite a same-sex couple, may include children from a previous relationship, can involve guests and even be used by the couple to start their own traditions.

My goal is for your ceremony to ROCK! I want the guests to beam smiles at you during the ceremony and afterward, tell you that your ceremony was the best they’ve been to. I want you to be so thrilled with your experience, that you couldn’t imagine recommending anyone else’s ceremony material to others who get ordained online to officiate for a friend or family member.
