About Joran Oppelt – Ordained Interfaith Minister, Wedding Officiant

I am always humbled and honored when I’m asked to officiate a wedding ceremony for a new couple. I have experience in religious, non-religious, and interfaith ceremonies. Large or small, indoor or outdoor. I love bringing people together and enjoy creating the perfect ceremony that will be remembered for a lifetime.

When you are ready to hire an officiant, please send me a message using the contact form below and we can begin to design your special day. I (or another qualified minister) am also available to perform baby naming ceremonies, blessingways, fatherhood rites, house blessings and more. Just ask.

“Joran met with my fiancé and I in my home to really get to the bottom of what we wanted to communicate to each other as well as our friends and family during the ceremony. He expertly incorporated traditions and rituals pulled from several cultures into one smooth and cohesive ceremony. In the end it was exactly perfect and beautiful. I have recommended Joran and will continue to do so.”
– Lorrie M.


“Joran officiated our wedding in September of 2011. Throughout the entire process, he was very open to our input and wonderfully incorporated what was important to us as a couple into the ceremony. We’re thrilled to count him among the key players in our special day.”
– Ryan B.

“Joran is kind, patient, and thoughtful. When it came time to pick the officiant for our wedding, there was only one person for the job. Joran blasted through our expectations and delivered a touching, humorous, and beautifully spiritual ceremony for us that our guests are still talking about over a year later.”
– Brian M.


“Joran was amazing! His service was personalized and heartfelt (without being cheesy). He had the most original wedding officiant speech we’ve ever heard. Joran made our day so very special (and even made the parents cry…in a good way).”
– Katie S.

“If you want someone who will get to know you and your special someone; who will become part of your family, take the role of a mentor and a friend even after the wedding then Joran is the ideal choice. In addition to that, he makes the ceremony extremely personal, exciting and interactive with the loved ones who have come to share your special moment so they feel like an active part of your wedding. We highly recommend Joran for your wedding!”
