CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement AND your choice to marry the love of your life!

Whether you are eloping spur of the moment, having a civil ceremony, or planning to have the wedding of your dreams, The Modern Officiant will create the most heartfelt, unique memory as possible that will be treasured always by you and guests alike.


Your ceremony is the heart of your wedding so your love story deserves to be conveyed by an experienced officiant.

Allow me the honor of exceeding your  expectations by producing the ceremony you envision. Love is not about gender - it is only about the beautiful union of two souls.

Though I specialize in LGBTQ weddings, I marry everyone! THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS LOVE.

I will perform your wedding, vow renewal, or elopement – whichever union you desire. 

I will incorporate any traditions and rituals that you wish to include in your ceremony.  No ceremony is too big or too small.  I can meet you and your fiancé to witness you exchanging "I do's" and signing your marriage license, or officiate your lavish ceremony!

Greetings! I am Jemelle Wooten, THE MODERN OFFICIANT. I became an ordained minister and licensed officiant in 2016. I was drawn to this profession while planning my own wedding. I noticed there was a need for an officiant in Atlanta who is a card-carrying member of the LGBTQ+ community and also specializes in non-traditional weddings. With the encouragement and support of my wife, and my passion for Marriage Equality, I became The Modern Officiant. 


I am also a certified Premarital Counseling Facilitator and Relationship Coach, helping couples prepare for what is to come AFTER the wedding.

*-* *-*

I love meeting couples and hearing the story of how they fell in love and decided to spend their lives together.  When the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Marriage Equality, I was overjoyed just thinking about all the couples who could now marry legally.  I want to help make the wedding experience exciting and memorable for couples whose friends and families may not be supportive of their decision to marry the person they love.​​ 


People within the LGBTQ+ community experience so much hate and discrimination in everyday life.  We shouldn’t also experience it with something we fought so hard for – the right to marry who we love.  This is why I am so passionate about Marriage Equality.  Though my specialty is LGBTQ marriages, I am delighted to marry ANY couple in love.  Love is just as strong and meaningful between ALL couples.
