- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I offer my services for $300 as a standard ceremony and up to as much as $400 just depending on the distance and the amount of time and preparation that would go in to the celebration and the decisions that need to be made. Travel time is included especially if its over 50 miles or more, so planning the wedding, conducting the rehearsal and the celebration are all taken in to account depending on your location. Most of all I enjoy officiating and try to offer my services as fair as possible and with in reason again depending on the distance.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We start by meeting with each other at a place that works for both of us. I also share attachments before the meeting of various types of services that I can offer to you. When we meet, it gives us a chance to discuss what I've sent and how things might pan out for the celebration of the ceremony. This meeting will give us a chance to discuss options and scenarios of how we see the celebration for you and your future spouse. Later at another time we meet to finalize plans and see if we are on track for the day of celebration.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
My training started at St. Meinrad Seminary, ordained in 1983 with a M-Div. in Theological Studies and served as a Catholic Priest for 16 years in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, serving in various parishes and two Catholic High Schools of Roncalli and Chatard for a total of 12 years. In my 16 years as a priest I officiated many marriage celebrations with full Mass and ceremonies for mixed religions. I've always enjoyed working with couples to help them understand each other better and be as prepared as they can be for the day they join together as one.
