Careful Who You Hire As Wedding Minister

As Moderator of the American Association of Wedding Officiants I hear this story often when couples are not careful who they hire to do their wedding ceremony Some are not legitimate or properly registered to do weddings. This couple did not know who he was nor checked references. Know who you hire and if they are legitimate and professional. Contact me if you need help.

 This couple may not be legally married. Read this link.

Getting Married In New Orleans Jackson Square

Photo Bob Bradford Photography

Jackson Square is a park in the center of the New Orleans French Quarter and can be used for weddings. The City rents the park but simple elopements can be done at the gate on St. Peter St for no fees. To rent the park you contact the city parks department. They rent the park but not chairs or anything else which can be obtain from rental groups in the Yellow pages.
 Be sure to contact the city as the Square is busy and on certain weekends closed for festivals.
New Orleans City Park is an alternative. For elopements we can use the Gate if the Quarter is not too busy.
Chaplain Jerry Schwehm has done many weddings in both spots over the past 20 years.
