Why use a Wedding Officiant vs a Justice of the Peace?

Getting married by a Justice of the Peace is like getting married in a courthouse, same script...short and sweet. A justice is an officer of the court who is allowed to perform civil ceremonies only. A wedding officiant/minister is ordained by a church and able to perform religious and non-religious marriage ceremonies with custom scripts and vows. Choosing the right officiant is one of the most important decisions you'll make during the wedding planning process, because the right ceremony is something you'll remember the rest of your life.
