- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing starts at $125. However, if the wedding you choose is at my house or a close location (20 miles or less), and if it is a quick wedding with no rehearsal I am happy to give a discount that can bring the price down to about $100 (depending on the ceremony that you want and location ). First responders, military, and police are also eligible for discounts.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
After our initial contact on the phone, I will send you my contract. If you decide to book your wedding with me, you will send the contract back with a $25 down payment (included in the price quoted).This will lock in the date. If you choose to have a consultation,we will set it up. If you are local,it will be in person or if you are out of area, on the phone. At the consultation, we will work together to customize your wedding. You can choose from samples that I provide, or I will be happy to use vows that you write. I want your day to be a reflection of the two of you, whether that be serious, romantic, quirky, or just fun!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
As a trained educator, I have worked with people for over 20 years. I have helped people in the best times of their lives, as well as very trying times. I also have a background (and degree) as a professional singer, and have performed in weddings as small as an intimate back yard garden ceremony to a huge, $100,000 wedding at a large cathedral. Currently, I am ordained to perform weddings in Kansas and Missouri. I trained with one of the top officiants in the area for several months to learn the best practices for a professional officiant.
