Wedding Ceremonies

interracial_coupleIt is totally understandable that brides and grooms and their families are on limited budgets; that is why I make it my business to carefully craft your ceremony until it is a “perfect fit” both financially and emotionally. I vow to provide you with an incomparable ceremony at an affordable price.

You see,when I meet with a couple, they inspire me to express their hearts’ love. That inspiration combined with my passion for the work that I do allows me to create a unique and memorable ceremony.

Let me explain some of the different ceremonies I offer and the preparation and fees that go into them:

Elopement Ceremonies At My Home

Elopement ceremonies can still be romantic and very much your own! This is not your “run of the mill” town hall ceremony. We consult via phone or email and you select from various prewritten non-denominational or secular ceremonies. You may also write your own vows if you wish. These ceremonies are only available on short notices of 1-2 months on weekends and can also be performed on weekday evenings.
Champagne and cake, wedding photographer, and flowers are available for an additional fee. Prices available upon request.

Elopement ceremonies at your venue or a public location

Same protocol as one at my home, but I come to you. Availability on short notice of 1-2 months on weekends.
Simple Ceremony

Couples choose from one of several, simple prewritten ceremonies. We consult via email or phone. My written ceremony will be provided to you in advance for your approval and you can also include your own written vows, and a ritual or reading of your choice. I will arrive 30 minutes prior to start time and will, of course, file your license, which is legally required via certified mail.
Custom Created Ceremony

Initial complimentary consultation, in-depth questionnaire and unlimited email/phone consultations.
Personalized, custom ceremony with rituals, poems and readings and I can assist you in writing your vows, if you so choose.
Ceremony is edited until it meets with your approval via emails/ phone consultations.
Written copy of ceremony provided to you before ceremony date for your approval. When ceremony is complete, I give you a keepsake book with your custom ceremony so you can repeat your vows to each other on your anniversary.
I arrive one hour before ceremony with a calm presence to keep stress levels down and coordinate with your other wedding professionals and the wedding party.
For me to attend rehearsals there is an extra fee (price reflecting location of rehearsal).

Discounts For All Active and Inactive Military

I joyfully give all military a discount on their ceremonies as a small way of saying “thank you” to them for all they do and have done to keep us safe.
