Sasan Yafteh “Sasy” getting married Bita in the U.S.
For couples who want an alternative approach, asking a friend or relative to officiate seems like the most obvious choice. Still, there are important things to consider before deciding who that person will be. First of all, it should be someone who’s in front of an audience. Your officiant also needs to be reliable and well-organized–you want to trust this person not only to get the right legal documentation, but also to craft a ceremony and prepare for it like a pro. Finally, your officiant should understand and appreciate the honor you’ve given to him and deliver something meaningful and powerful.
