QUESTIONS TO SPECIFICALLY ASK A POTENTIAL OFFICIANT:
QUESTION: Can you give us the ceremony we want?
Find out if the Officiant will marry you if you write your own vows and design your own ceremony,
and if he/she can help with some suggested music, etc. Make sure the Officiant will perform an
interfaith Wedding (if necessary) or will allow photography or videography. Basically, ask about all
the particulars that apply to your Wedding plans. Get a feel for the Officiant's manner, tone of voice,
and spiritual nature. Also, find out what the ceremony will entail, as well as its estimated length
especially since a Wedding Time-line will help everyone involved.
MY ANSWER: Yes, I am very happy to have the couple write and share their own vows! Since it
would be your Wedding, I believe you could design your own ceremony. I can help with that only if
you wish. I do not have an all inclusive list of Wedding services providers, but would be happy to
share what information I do have. I will share a Wedding script with faith in it ONLY if you, the couple
request it. Yes, I am comfortable around photographers and videographers.
You can ask any other questions you might have when we meet to talk about your plans!
QUESTION: What's your experience?
You will want to know how many weddings this person has performed, especially Weddings like
yours. Ask for referrals from satisfied customers (five is a fair request).
MY ANSWER: A couple of years ago, I officiated 97 Weddings in that one year. I don't have that many
Weddings every year, but have married close to that amount each year. You can view all the
reviews couples have shared about my services on Facebook, Wedding Wire and Thumbtack.
Please visit my REVIEWS page here on my web site for those reviews. I don't provide names and
phone numbers of couples I've officiated for to allow for their privacy.
QUESTIONS: Are you flexible?
Find out if the officiant is willing to travel to your venue. Also make sure
that the officiant has a contingency plan in case he/she cannot make it.
MY ANSWER: Yes, I am willing to travel to your venue for your Wedding based on my contract.
Yes, I have a contingency plan. I make it known to my couples that I have two back up Officiants that
I can ask if they would be available if I ever needed them to officiate. I've never needed to use a
back up officiant but have been there for one who had a health crisis & ended up in hospice.
QUESTION: What are your credentials?
Ensure that the Officiant is licensed or registered to perform a Wedding in your state by contacting
the City Clerk. You can also ask the Officiant which Seminary he/she is ordained through.
MY ANSWER: I am a licensed Ordained Minister through Rose Ministries located at 3675 S Rainbow
Blvd, Ste 107-601, Las Vegas, NV 89103. My license number is 193203541. Their phone number is:
(702) 765-4127. I've been a licensed Ordained Minister since 2009 but have only been licensed with
Rose Ministries since 2013. I am a lifetime member of their congregation and am in good standing.
I also have a business license in the State of Washington under the name of:
Reverend Rose J Woodruff Wedding Officiant
QUESTION: How often will we meet?
Do you want an officiant who will consult with you or simply show up to perform the ceremony? Most
engaged couples want the Officiant to run the rehearsal. Is he/she available by phone or email if
you have questions? Some members of the clergy require couples to have counseling before they
will marry them. If that's the case, make sure you are given a clear schedule that isn't overwhelming.
MY ANSWER: I generally meet with a couple once and get a feel of what they want for their Wedding
script. Once I have it written, I email it to the couple until they have given their approval. With
technology as it is today, most follow up can be done through email. I am available to organize the
Rehearsal based on our contract. I am always available to answer questions by text or email. I am
also available to answer question by calling me at: (360) 356-4986. At times, though, I am not
available to answer the phone if I'm in a meeting or Officiating a Wedding or driving on the freeway.
I do not require that couples use my services to counsel them before they get married.
I am available though if they want to. I charge $20 per hour for that service.
QUESTION: Will you be joining us at the reception?
Be sure to plan for an extra meal if the Officiant agrees to attend based on their schedule.
MY ANSWER: I've been invited by many couples to stay for their reception but due to my schedule,
I generally thank them for their offer and decline.
QUESTION: What do you wear?
MY ANSWER: I always wear dress slacks with either a blue or navy blue jacket, or during the warm
days, I wear a grey colored short sleeve blouse. These three outfits can be seen on my Facebook
Wedding Officiant business page at: https://www.facebook.com/RoseWoodruffWeddingOfficiant
