I’d look for a Justice of the Peace.  Or, since you are already married, you could just create your own ceremony (lots of great resources online) and have a close friend/family member “officiate.”

@squeak:  we created our own ceremony and it was so much fun! There’s lots of great info to be found on the internet, and our Justice of the Peace offers custom ceremonies, so he gave us tons of resources to help.  I’m so excited for our ceremony!

We found some online, although we ended up going with my mom’s husband’s friend who is a pastor and officiant. He does lots of weddings and is listed online. We had a small ceremony at mom’s cabin in the woods 🙂

I found my officiant by googling for local unitarian universalist ministers. We found our reverend who is a woman who preaches sometimes at the local UU church. She was very open to working with our blended religious/non-religious values. And she didn’t care that we weren’t members of her church. We’re paying $225 for rehearsal plus day of officiating.

You could also have someone ordained online for some people its free and if not theres a small fee just an option to consider

Since your married what about one of your friends?  We got married in the morning and for our ceremony that evening had one of DH’s out going friends, who is ordained online, handle it.  Everyone thought that was the real ceremony.  We just gifted him the same thing we gave the Groomsmen.
