Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Although I do have standard prices for my services, everything is negotiable. For local weddings, I have a very competitive flat rate. If I must travel any significant distance, the fee includes mileage and/or travel expenses.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
After being contacted by new customers, I do my best to turn them from customers into friends. Whenever possible, I want to meet face to face with the couple, in order to get to know them, and to give them the opportunity to get to know me. It also allows me to find out the couple's preferences regarding their wedding ceremony. As Savannah is a popular destination for weddings--and people come here from all over the world--it's not always possible to meet with them in advance. In that case, we must do our work by telephone and e-mail.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been officiating weddings for more than fifty years. I am an ordained minister with college and seminary degrees including B.A., M.Div., and Ph.D., and three-and-a-half years of additional chaplaincy training. I was a parish pastor for 25 years. For the last 25 years, I have worked as a chaplain in hospitals, hospice, and prisons.
