As a Dudeist minister, it is my goal to assist you in creating  a laid-back, low-stress wedding ceremony, commitment ceremony, elopement, or vow renewal to celebrate your union. However, there are FEW rules that apply; this isn’t ’Nam, after all…

The ceremony must be:

- Legal (you must have a Kansas marriage license, or a Kansas marriage certificate for vow renewal)

- Between two consenting adults who understand the responsibilities of their unity (finances, wills, parentage of children if they so desire, etc)

- And between a couple who love and respect each other.


Dudeism takes no stand on deities or metaphysics; we deal with the world as it is presented, in its own time and place. I will take your opinions and beliefs into account, and use it to help design your ceremony accordingly. It is my job to honor your unity and what it means to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your payment policy?

A non-refundable deposit of 50% of the total fee must be paid in order to reserve a spot on the Officiant's calendar. The remaining balance due must be paid prior to day of your ceremony.

Can we personalize our ceremony?

Absolutely! The "Abide" and "Urban Achiever" packages include a longer, personalized ceremony.

You are also welcome to write your own vows.

Can you legally officiate at our wedding?

I am an ordained minister through The Church of the Latter-Day Dude - you can view my certificate of ordination. I have the full legal authority to perform weddings in the State of Kansas. For ceremonies in another state, I may have to register as an officiant.

When do we need to get our marriage license?

I recommend applying for your license at least 3-4 weeks before your ceremony, to ensure that everything is in order and ready to go. (It typically takes around 2 weeks to receive your license after submitting an application.) You can now apply for a Kansas Marriage License online HERE.

We were legally married in secret, but our family doesn't know. Can you still perform our ceremony?

Of course! I will just need to see a copy of your marriage certificate before the ceremony, as I am not permitted to perform a "fake wedding ceremony".

How do I order a copy of our marriage certificate?

You will need to wait at least 2 weeks after your ceremony for your license to be processed before ordering a copy of your certificate. You can order a legal copy HERE.
