Service & Fees
Weddings, Elopements, & Vow Renewals
Couples who choose my services want something more than a cookie-cutter, fill-the-name-in-the-blank ceremony. They want a ceremony that is unique, personalized, and from the heart.
The fees for most personalized ceremonies range from $350 - $550. The fee varies from couple to couple, based on the length and complexity of your ceremony, travel requirements, and the location and date of the ceremony. The pricing for your ceremony will reflect the time spent making sure that your wedding ceremony is customized, personalized, and just the way you want it.
What you get for your money is the confidence that comes with knowing that you have hired an experienced and professional wedding officiant with excellent credentials and references. I will work with you and for you to create a truly beautiful and meaningful wedding ceremony.
My services include careful preparation of your ceremony script, rehearsal for the ceremony when needed, as well as officiating at the ceremony itself. I will consult with your musicians/DJ/videographer/wedding planner and venue staff as needed, and I will be available to you by phone, text, and email throughout the process of preparing for your big day.
