Introduction: I love hearing stories of how couples met, helping create their unique ceremony (vows, readings, etc) that reflects who they are. I am here for my couples from the FREE CONSULTATION until the Wedding Rehearsal/Day. I have 5 different price points ranging from $150 -$175 (Elopement) - $375 (Formal Wedding 30 minutes+). Holiday season ceremonies (Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve/Day, New Year's Eve Day, Memorial & Labor Day Weekends) have an added %10 of base price. **PLEASE NOTE** During our consultation, we will discuss COVID-19 awareness and precautions!!

Wedding Officiant

From the time I put in the request for a wedding officiant, Wydetta was very punctual, responsive and professional. I really appreciated the communication she had with us in order to ensure the ceremony was a hit! And it was...We couldn’t have had a better officiant!

Wedding Officiant

It was truly amazing. From the first conversation we truly enjoyed Wydetta's personality. After talking with her during that initial consultation we knew she would bring everything we wanted to our ceremony. She was willing to incorporate everything we wanted and even recommned some things we hadn't thought of. The communications over the weeks leading up to our special day were timely and efficient. She made us feel that we picked the right officiant. On the day of the ceremony a few surprises arose but she was willing to roll with the punches with us. Her understanding of what we wanted was clear and her execution of it the day of was exceptional. Thank you so much Wydetta for truly blessing our day.

Wedding Officiant

From the beginning she really gave me good advice and information. She showed up the day of the wedding and just really put my mind to rest. It was so much going on but she really just stepped right in without hesitation just made the day of the wedding flow so well. I highly recommend her. You will not be disappointed.

Wedding Officiant

This officiant was able to work with us quickly! We contacted her on Monday and had the ceremony on Wednesday. She was responsive to all our needs, made everything easy and helped us navigate the whole process of getting married. We really appreciate her and would give her 6 stars if we could!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My fees are based on the type of ceremony you will have, As of 9/2020 the scale is as follows; Elopement: $125 - $175: Vow Renewal & Commitment Ceremonies: $225: Short and Sweet $275: Simply Perfect $325: Formal Wedding $375 (30 mins+) . Ceremonies that take place on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve/Day, New Year's Eve/Day, Fourth of July, Memorial & Labor Day Weekend will incur an additional 10% charge. Consultations are FREE. There may be additional fees if travel is more than 20 miles outside of Chicago proper, parking, etc. All of these items are discussed and agreed upon prior to signing of Contract/Agreement.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I speak with you (FREE Consultation) on the phone or (depending on the time frame), we can set up a time to meet (or ZOOM during COVID). We will discuss your vision for the ceremony, including timeline expectations, make choices for marriage and ring vows, readings, etc. A lot of the latter information depends on the length of time we have between initial meeting and wedding date. Elopements include a FREE short phone consult (if time permits).

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been an Officiant for 6 years. I am also a wedding assistant at my church (9 years). This knowledge is a plus, therefore, I include running the rehearsal process in my package if requested. I have also been an event planner so, I am very aware of the structure of ceremonies in a variety of venues.
