We had a great experience with Terri for our wedding. The ceremony she created for us was personal, professional, funny and sentimental. Everyone at the ceremony asked me where I found her. My sister and fiancée will be contacting her for their ceremony next year. We highly recommend Terri Poster-Taylor for officiating your event. Thank you Terri!Sep 10, 2017Verified
Terri did an excellent job officiating our wedding. She had lots of different options for us to choose from concerning vows, and seemed very comfortable and knowledgeable with the whole process. It was a huge relief to work with someone who really knew what she was doing!Sep 15, 2016Verified
Our experience was awesome, she was professional, on time and everything went smoothly, she prepared a ceremony that was a perfect fit with us. She also promptly filed our marriage license for us, that we received 9 days after our wedding! We are so glad that we were able to find and hire Terri as our wedding officiant! Thanks!Feb 24, 2017Verified
Terri ensured our ceremony was special and recommended the perfect place to tie the knot. If anyone needs an officiant, Terri is a great choice for your wedding needs. Thanks Terri Mr and Mrs ColleyJul 3, 2016Verified
Non-Religious Wedding Officiant
Terri was absolutely wonderful as our officiant! She perfectly conveyed everything my wife and I wanted at the ceremony, and gave us plenty of feedback and participation in what was recited. I highly recommend Terri for any wedding or occasion!Jan 22, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My base fee is $50 which includes travel to your location and one notarization. Additional documents are $10 per document notarized. If there are multiple documents, I will discount the per document fee based on the number of documents. These fees are for general notary work. For loan documents, please call for a quote as the price will depend on distance traveled, number of pages in the loan document, type of loan, etc. To write the ceremony and perform the wedding is $150 minimum. I can do as much or as little as the couple would like. The $150 takes care of officiating the ceremony, writing the love story to share at the ceremony and my travel fee. Fees go up with additional elements added to the ceremony. All of this is discussed during the free, no obligation consultation. I can also conduct the State of Florida required marriage ceremony for $90.00. The fee includes conducting the ceremony, travel fee and returning the marriage license to the issuing authority via Priority Mail.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?For a wedding ceremony where I will be creating and writing the ceremony, I like to meet with the couple before I have even been hired! This gives us a chance to see if we "click' and if I am the right wedding officiant for the couple. If we do hit it off and the couple decides they want to hire me, I have a questionnaire to give them to fill out, giving me details on how they met, when they fell in love, how and who proposed, etc. This is the basis for the ceremony that I will create for them. The couple has the final approval on the ceremony that I write and they can make as many changes as they want to the ceremony until it is exactly what they want for their special day.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I belong to the Professional Association of Notaries Public, National Notary Association, American Association of Notaries and the Florida Notary Association. I am certified as a Notary Signing Agent by NNA andI am also a graduate of Notary2Pro and all of these offer courses, updates, changes to the law, etc., to it's members. The Celebrant Foundation and Institute, where I received my certification as a Celebrant, also offers continuing education through the Alumni Association.
