Wedding Officiants – Our Services
Choosing the right wedding officiant is one of the most important decisions you’ll make during the wedding planning process, because the way your ceremony feels will be something you and your families will remember forever. I work closely with each couple to create a fully customized ceremony that celebrates their unique relationship, and I never deliver a generic “cookie cutter” script.
As a professional non-denominational minister, I perform many of religious and secular wedding ceremonies each year. I want to create a memorable, heartfelt experience for you and your wedding guests. I am excited to collaborate with you to make your wedding ceremony exactly what you’re looking for.
Each wedding ceremony package includes the following:
Initial Consultation – I want you to feel totally comfortable booking our services,
which is why we offer a free, no-obligation consultation before you ever sign a
contract. We typically conduct these initial consultations by phone, but
if you would prefer to meet in person, you can certainly do so.
Planning Meeting – Once you’ve signed your contract and paid the 50% deposit, we will schedule a planning meeting. This meeting normally happens in person, but it can also be done via a phone call as well. I will ask you questions about what you feel is important to include in your ceremony and get to know the two of you and learn about your relationship. This information will help me in writing your ceremony to make sure it reflects your beliefs and personalities.
Ceremony Editing – Following your planning meeting, I will write a full draft of your ceremony and email it to you for your review. You can revise your draft ceremony as much as you’d like until it is the exact wedding ceremony you want, and then simply email your edited draft back to me. We want it to feel perfect – if you need additional suggestions or guidance, I would be happy to help at no additional charge.
The Ceremony! – As your Wedding Officiant, I will arrive at your wedding early to help coordinate with your attendants and vendors and get ready for the processional. We are more than happy to work with other wedding professionals, and are perfectly comfortable with photographers taking pictures anywhere they would like during the ceremony. As your Wedding Officiant, I will deliver the exact ceremony you’ve discussed, and create a wonderful experience for you and your guests.
The Marriage License – Although it’s your responsibility to get the marriage license before the wedding, as your officiant I will take care of signing it afterward and filing it with the proper office. You’ll also get a copy of the license for you to keep, in case you need it for your records or on your honeymoon.
