Learn more about our ads. How awesome is it to see an officiant beaming as much as the couple!? The Reverend D is also featured in our Offbeat Vendors guide! People become wedding officiants for a lot of different reasons… Some do it to fulfill a spiritual calling. Some do it so they can perform weddings for friends. Some get into it for the money. Our sponsor, The Reverend D, did it out of sheer frustration! I would say, that former Offbeat Bride DonnaMarie being frustrated with finding an offbeat wedding officiant in the New York area might be the best thing that ever happened to your, nay, the world of wedding ceremonies. Here's why… How The Reverend D got to be… I embarked upon my mission: to give all of you left-of-center brides exactly the wedding that you want. You want to get married by a chick in full gothic regalia? Done. Want to get married by Slave Leia? Done. Want an officiant who tells dirty jokes? Leads a pagan hand-fasting ritual? Incorporates your performance art into the service? Belts out a rock and roll love song for you and your significant other? Dresses like Elvira or a zombie for your Halloween wedding? Reads the entire service in Klingon? Or who FINALLY gets to perform legal, same-sex ceremonies with simple beauty and dignity? Or maybe you just want someone who understands your lifestyle and thinks it's awesome. You get the picture. No idea is too wild, too weird, or yes, even too normal. Your wedding can be anything you want it to be; my only goal is to help you achieve it. And she's not just talking the talk, she walks the walk! All the different ways Reverend D has celebrated and officiated… Steampunk-ing it up, for Lisa and Drew's wedding. Getting her Doctor Who on for Stasia and John's Whovian wedding Goth as hell for Jamie and Justin's wedding. This recent bride review pretty much sums it up… When she heard we were having a dinosaur-themed wedding, she gleefully offered to dress up as a velociraptor. I still wish my now-husband didn’t pass on that offer. Basically, The Reverend D not only wants to marry you, but to marry your personality into your ceremony as well. Be smart like Brittany and Mike, here, and ask Reverend D to happily marry you! All that awesome, and she's NOT going to take a big chunk of your wedding budget… OFFBEAT DISCOUNT: The Reverend D loves Offbeat Bride readers, so mention that you found her through us, and snag yourself a 10% discount. (Of course, she don't charge very much in the first place, but still… discounts is discounts, yo!) If you're frustratingly trying to find the right awesome New York wedding officiant that will rock that dino costume, wield that Sonic Screwdriver, and unite you in love and rock and roll… your search is over. Ask one of our own Offbeat Brides to marry the two of you! Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here. Edited text* Enter your suggested copyedit here.
