- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My fee is $300 - $350 depending on your location. That is all inclusive of meeting the couple, writing their ceremony, going to the rehearsal, the wedding and filing their marriage license. Fee is payable by cash or check at the rehearsal or ceremony. There are no additional charges or surprises. Everything is included. A non-refundable deposit of $100 is required to hold your date.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The first meeting is a free consultation to get to know each other. Once the couple decides that they want me to officiate their wedding, I ask a lot of questions so I can write a ceremony based on the information they have given me. We continue to tweak the ceremony by phone, email or in person to make sure the ceremony comes from their heart and reflects their lifestyle. We talk again a month prior to the wedding to review the ceremony make any changes, etc. I will be at the rehearsal if needed and of course the ceremony and will be available by phone or email throughout the entire process to answer any questions or concerns that may come up. This is YOUR wedding. I want you to be comfortable with me and in this process. Don't hesitate to ask any question that comes to mind. I am available to you from the time you hire me to your wedding. I will also file your marriage license via certified mail and let you know when I get the return receipt. I also make a copy of your license just in case you need it before you receive your certified copy from the county.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am an ordained minister with the Universal Life Church. I have performed many weddings and I care very much about my couples.
