How do you get ordained to perform wedding ceremonies for your friends and family in California? Getting ordained is simple, legal, inexpensive and takes just a few minutes!
Ceremonial minister ordination for California includes authorization to legally perform all of life's celebrations, including marriage ceremonies (weddings), baby blessings (baptism), house blessings, re-commitment ceremonies (vow renewal), memorials (funerals), handfasting, and other rites and rituals.
Ordination as a Marriage Officiant and ceremonial minister complies with all state and local laws in California and is valid and accepted throughout the United States and everywhere around the world!
In California, you have two options for ordination, both of which are valid and legal for ceremonies anywhere in the state:
Single-ceremony authorization, which permits you to perform one marriage ceremony anywhere in California; or
Unlimited ordination, which permits you to perform an unlimited number of ceremonies in California and elsewhere throughout the United States without restriction during your active term.
