What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Our first step is to have a 10 minute phone consult after you review the quote. In this meeting I answer any questions you have and we set out the possible terms of the contract between us.
After we receive the completed contract for services we request a 50% deposit within 30 days of the completed contract.
We then have a series of meetings to develop and create your ceremony.
Once you have approved the ceremony we send you a copy of the complete ceremony.
Finally, we see you at the rehearsal, (if there is one), and then the ceremony!
Balance of contract fees due at end of ceremony.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am ordained by the International Metaphysical Ministry with a DMsc awarded by the International Metaphysical University. I am a licensed and ordained minister in all 50 states.
I have been a pastor of the Wite Rayvn Metaphysical Church ATC since 2009.
I have performed many weddings in my time as a pastor.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
My standard pricing is $125 for my services with an additional $25 travel expenses within 1 hour of my location or $50 travel expenses over 1 hour.
To come to a rehearsal is an additional $50.00 under normal circumstances.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I began doing this work as a minister for my local church and expanded to non members due to a fellow minister sharing her burden of possible weddings with me. It has continued since then!
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with couples of all life styles and beliefs.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
It is really important for the officiant to be able to make a connection with the possible client couple. This connection allows a free flow of information that helps to make the ceremony a wonderful experience.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
There are typically several things that a couple should think about before they talk to a wedding officiant.
1. The Date
2. What kind of ceremony are they interested in?
3. How large a group?
4. Are children or other family members to be involved in the ceremony.
5. Is a rehearsal necessary?
6. Is the gender of the officiant important?
7. How long has the officiant been doing weddings?
8. The venue for the wedding.
