$250 Typical Price

My name is Ralph Griggs and I am a nondenominational minster who has helped countless couples in middle Tennessee with their weddings ceremonies. I work with the couple to personalize their ceremonies to make it just what they want it to be. Please contact me if you would like to discuss the possibility of my helping you have a ceremony to remember.

I also have a free online marriage prep guide that TN couples can use to save $60 on their marriage license. You can see the entire course online now at the Visit My Blog link above.

    Amazing officiant!

    Ralph was an amazing officiant! Nashville was not mine or my husband’s hometown so we were worried about finding a minister who would marry us with a personal, faith-filled touch. Our wedding planner Sweetwater Events connected us with Ralph and after meeting with him we immediately felt like we were in good hands. He tailored the ceremony to what we were looking for, kept it professional yet some light humor mixed in, it was a perfect ceremony. Ralph also provides an online pre-marital course which we thoroughly enjoyed. It was self-paced and filled with great discussion questions and notes.

    Outstanding job!

    Ralph was an absolute pleasure to work with! We were worried about finding a minister that made us feel comfortable, but he was the perfect addition to our ceremony. He met with us via phone call to go through all the details, and even included an online premarital counseling course, which we used to strengthen our relationship in months leading up to our day, as well as get a great discount on our marriage license! He also sent us a ceremony planning guide that was instrumental in helping us craft the perfect ceremony. His delivery of it combined all of the seriousness, humor, and love we hoped for and we had numerous compliments on how much our guests enjoyed it! He also filed our license for us while we were away on our honeymoon! Ralph’s communication and professionalism can not be beat, and we are grateful to have had him as part of our team that day. If you’re stuck on who to go with for your wedding, you can trust that Ralph will do an outstanding job!

    Minister Griggs is the BOMB.COM!

    Wow. Minister Griggs is the bomb.com. Made me and my husband so comfortable (as my hubby was very nervous). He was very kind, responded to every email within a few hours, punctual (early) and just did a fantastic job. Did not have a problem with being the only White guy in the room. He was very comfortable and charismatic. He was even humorous which helped everybody to relax and enjoy. Don't get married without him!
