The heart of every wedding is the ceremony. You can't do your ceremony over the day of the marriage. And each ceremony I perform is as unique as you are. So we might as well start off right together to create a loving presentation in the location you have chosen.
As soon as I learn from you exactly what you want and long for in your ceremony, I can offer you a quote for services.
My fee is to support the dedicated time I invest developing, creating, writing and officiating your custom legal ceremony.
Variables include but are not limited to date, location, rehearsal, travel, and my dedicated time to create and officiate your custom, legal, personalized marriage ceremony.
"You captured our personal fairy tale by listening to our dreams. We can't thank you enough for creating a ceremony that was more than we ever expected." Chrissy and Frank, The Farmhouse, Malvern, PA
In fairness to you as a couple, I work to insure that my fee offers deep value. If I have the privilege of working with you, you have the comfort of knowing that you have an experienced, dedicated-to-your-day, interested officiate who loves her work.
"Blending the family vineyard with our wedding ceremony was exactly what we wanted - just more so! It was a marvelous day for us and your work as our officiant was the best start to a wedding day any couple could want." Kate and Liam, Family Vineyard, Dutchess County, NY
To develop your custom-written legal ceremony that is a celebration of your love, I personally meet with you. "Meeting with you" can be in person, over the phone, and email depending on our schedules. Together we plan over a lengthy list of questions I have developed that covers just about anything you can think of. We chat about your needs and wishes as we consider ideas uniquely suited to your ceremony location.
After that is when I begin developing your custom-written legal ceremony. Some weeks before your wedding ceremony, I will email the script over to you for review. Unlimited emails, phone calls and script changes are included.
Also included is my leading your rehearsal, and providing full coordination to walk everyone through their parts of the ceremony for a harmonious start: ushers, musicians, site manager, photographer, wedding party, parents and grandparents.
My personalized service includes providing you, when asked, with suggestions for planning and implementation, etiquette advice, and creating your personalized Wedding Day Ceremony Timeline essential for the wedding planner (if you have one), wedding program, musicians, photographer and caterer.
As a result, the wedding ceremony will be meaningful, joyful, and uniquely yours.
My officiant fees vary for each ceremony and range from $750.
A deposit of 50 percent of the fee quote is required to reserve your wedding date and time. You will receive a Letter of Agreement to confirm that you are in my calendar for your wedding date and time, as well as other important terms and points. MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover credit and debit cards accepted.
