Daniel S Tipton

Officiant for weddings, funerals, blessings for name changes after transitioning, and any ritual support needed to mark special occasions. I am a seminary trained and ordained minister (now a non-religious grief counselor and secular humanist) who feels connected to people of all spiritual and non-religious philosophies.


I am an ordained clergyperson (Presbyterian Church, USA) open to supporting my community through ritual connections such as weddings, funerals, and blessings/special acknowledgment of name changes after transitioning. I am open to supporting  these connections for all people. I am open to spiritual and non-spiritual/non-religious events and will craft a ritual, practice, or service that meets you where you are, supports your wellbeing and happiness, and makes meaningful connections with your community.

Fee Schedule:
Wedding officiant fees begin at $200.00 for a basic service up to 30 minutes (includes an up to one hour consultation/planning session) and funerals are donation based with a suggested minimum of $50 for short/graveside services and $100 for longer services up to 1 hour. Name change blessings are free, however a donation of any amount based on means is welcomed. All fees/donations must be paid in Cash/Venmo/Paypal only.
