- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Our basic pricing is : Officiant: $175-250 based on input Additional for meeting $50 Additional for rehearsal $75 A $75 non-refundable deposit is required upon hiring to hold the date. An hour from published ceremony start time is included in the fee.

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
It starts with a phone call to discuss the timing and location. If necessary, we meet in person to talk in person about the expectations for the day.I take pride in learning about who the participants really are so I can bring a personal feeling to their ceremony. With that in mind, I am genuinely interested in hearing their details- the story of how they met, the family dynamics, individual likes and dislikes,their hopes for the future and other insights that I will lean on to set the ceremony apart, to establish an intimacy for everyone involved. I am attentive to everyone's needs. I have basic scripts and add on for the couple to look over, pick/choose, add/delete and together we put together the couple’s personal ceremony .
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
While I have no professional education as an officiant, my previous work gave me the background qualifications and impetus to follow this path. I am retired from CBS Network News and was always in front of diverse groups of individuals....giving talks, lectures and general customer relations. I know how to get the best out of people, how to treat them and make them feel at home. My wife is a retired educator with a degree in visual arts and we have been a dynamic duo since we both retired.
