HelloI am an attorney with more than 25 years of experience and I look forward to assisting you with this matter todayGeorgia law is any Licensed or ordained ministers, clergymen, or pastors of recognized religious societies, and justices of the peace may perform a marriage and it is the ordained minister who must sign off on the certificate
As to "Officiating" a couple may choose whom they please but the Minister must also be present at the ceremony and oversee it. They then must sign the certificate of marriage and return that to the clerk of the court in the county where this has taken place.
