Rates & Services
Officiants fees have a wide range of pricing, from very low to unbelievably high. My feeling is that you have spent so very much on everything else that you need not have to spend a fortune for a beautiful ceremony that was customized just for you. Part of my fee is the joy that I receive by helping to make your day extra special and you allowing me to be part of it. Nothing tops what I like to call that "Ah moment" when a groom sees his bride for the first time.
I feel that a rehearsal is just as beneficial for me as it is for you, therefore I do not charge extra for them. It's the time where the wedding party can have fun and enjoy. Everyone is much more at ease for the wedding after having a rehearsal.
I do arrive approximately 15-30 minutes before the ceremony for any of those last minutes things that may arise.
My fee of $250.00 includes the $50.00 non-refundable booking fee, our initial meeting, unlimited contact through email and phone, with or without rehearsal, travel times, filing fees and 3 certified copies of your marriage certificate, which I will file and mail to you after your ceremony. I also provide a beautiful handmade copy of your marriage certificate and a decorative copy of your ceremony which are done in your wedding colors.
In light of the rising fuel costs, if you are unable to make our appointment, please notify me at least 2 hours prior to the time we are to meet.
