Wedding Ceremony Packages

Wedding Ceremony Packages
The approach I use to create your wedding ceremony is very different from some other wedding officiant professionals. You and your fiancé are encouraged to be part of the creative process, which allows for the creation of a ceremony that truly reflects who you are as a couple.

Initial Consultation
Preliminary consultations are free. Meetings can be held over coffee, telephone, Skype, or FaceTime. Meeting face-to-face is my preferred method prior to signing the agreement or making the deposit, just to be sure I meet your full expectations. However, if that is not possible in some circumstances, in which the phone will be fine.

Customs & Rituals
The inclusion of other ceremony elements such as a Sand Ceremony, Handfasting Ceremony, Unity Candle Ceremony, or other symbolic or religious services can be done without an additional fee.

Fees
A professional officiant makes all the difference in having the wedding of your dreams. My fees reflect my professional experience and education, as well as the customization that goes into every ceremony.

Deposit
A non-refundable 50% deposit is required to confirm your date on my schedule. Once the deposit is received, the date and time are yours. The remaining 50% is due two weeks prior to the wedding date.

 

Easy Payment Options

After selecting the ceremony style that meets your needs, you can select from the drop-down menu to make your payment. You can choose to make either a 50% or full payment for the service.
