- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I generally charge $250 for a wedding ceremony. I will be happy to be at the rehearsal if needed. To add-on the rehearsal is $100. I may be available for pre-marital counseling, depending on scheduling, at a rate of $100 per-session. Also, I mail in all marriage licenses to the county via certified mail at no extra charge. That way the couples I marry have a record of the license being mailed and received. My regular pricing includes travel anywhere in the metro Phoenix area. Travel rate to others areas is $50/hour. I can accept almost any form of payment Credit card, Cash, Zelle, Venmo, Cash App, or PayPal.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I try and answer any and all questions. I can be reached on Thumbtack as well as via text, cell, and email. I usually, suggest interested parties visit my website so they can see photos and videos and have a better idea of what it will be like having me as a part of their big day. Then, I send an outline for the ceremony which gives the bride and groom some guidance and options for a formal ceremony or a ceremony that is a bit more casual. Either way, my role is to serve. The ceremony can be customized. Only the charge and pronouncement are legal requirements.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been licensed minister since 2004 and am currently ordained by The Foursquare Church.
