Introduction: I have 50 years of experience in planning and officiating non-denominational Christian weddings of all sizes and varieties of settings to make warm, personal and treasured memories! My $350 fee for 2020 weddings is all-inclusive. It includes the wedding, wedding rehearsal, introductory meeting, as many other meetings as needed or wanted to plan the wedding, and professional, certified pre-marriage counseling. We underwrite the cost of the couple accessing the Prepare-Enrich Premarriage Assessment online, and we provide free interpretation, which with the premarriage counseling saves the couple $75 toward their Minnesota marriage license! We do not charge any additional travel fee. The only additional cost will be the premarriage counseling books ("Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts" with men's and women's workbooks by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott), about $40 via Amazon. Couples and their families and friends are pleased by my ability to blend serious thoughts and humor into each wedding service so that each (yours!) is unique and memorable. The planning and counseling will bring you to see me not just as "wedding officiant" but as a wedding pastor and friend! Let's meet and decide if I will be a good fit to serve as your wedding pastor. Please check my Reviews, then e-mail me or call me so we can arrange a time and place to meet, get acquainted, learn your Wedding plans and Marriage hopes, and decide if I'd be a good for to serve as your Wedding Pastor. Thanks for reading. Whatever you decide, I pray God will bless your wedding and your marriage!

Wedding Officiant

Chuck and his Wife Phyllis were everything and more you could ever ask for. They invited us to their house every other week to go through the pre-marriage class, My wife and I always looked forward to spending time and learning from them. Chuck did a great job of officiating our wedding and we got a ton of complements on his service from our guests. If you are looking to learn from a couple and grow with your partner I would highly recommend Chuck!

Wedding Officiant

We loved working with pastor chuck and his wife Phyllis. We did the premarital counseling before the big day which was the best decision we could have made. Pastor chuck and his wife bring to the table a wealth of knowledge when it comes to starting your marriage on the right foot and making it last a life time. The ceremony was beautiful, pastor chuck made our ceremony so personal to us and made the day even more special. 100% would recommend him to any couple looking for an officiant for their wedding.

Wedding Officiant

Chuck is phenomenally professional in every aspect, and made the entire process as smooth as possible. We noticed he had perfect ratings and he definitely lives up to them. His lovely wife Phyllis and him are so personable and passionate from the start, to the big day. They meet with you to discuss everything, and take the time to get to know you and your partner to the fullest. Chuck responds to emails promptly and courteously throughout the process. When the wedding day finally comes, Chuck's dedicated officiating comes so natural, and makes the ceremony all the more meaningful and joyous. We can't recommend Chuck and Phyllis more!!! They are fantastic people!!! ---- Trevor and Christina.

Wedding Officiant

Pastor Chuck was not just the officiant of our wedding. He also became part of our family. He did exactly what we asked him to do in our ceremony. It was perfect. He kept everybody's attention. His Christian values was one of our main reasons for choosing Pastor Landon, and the presence of the Holy Spirit was undeniable. We were truly blessed in finding such a wonderful minister. He is a rare find. Our families could not stop talking about the Pastor and the ceremony. I don't think there was anything that could have made it better.

Wedding Officiant

Pastor Chuck officiated a loving, intimate and deeply moving marriage ceremony for Sophak and I. Our ceremony was very moving because of his service. Pastor Chuck will be our lifelong friend. He preformed our ceremony at our home. Our guests commented his service at our wedding was the most moving ceremony they had seen. We love him and felt he loved us back.

FAQs

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

    My fee of $350 includes all costs: initial meeting, Pre-Marriage Counseling of 5 sessions, Prepare-Enrich Pre-Marriage Online Assessment an Review, Planning Your Personalized Wedding Service, Conducting your Wedding Rehearsal, Officiating your Wedding. No travel additions! No addition for completing, signing and mailing in the Marriage License! Your only additional cost: the Pre-Marriage Book ("Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts" and workbooks for groom and bride, about $40). This will be your most valuable investment in your Wedding and Marriage!

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

    Following Thumbtack contact, I arrange by e-mail or telephone with the couple for a mutually convenient initial meeting to get acquainted, learn your wedding and marriage hopes and dreams, and mutually determine if we would be a good team to work together. Soon after that I enroll you in the 5-session group Pre-Marriage Counseling if you desire it. I also enroll you in the on-line Prepare-Enrich Pre-Marriage Assessment; when it is completed by both of you my wife and I (we are both certified facilitators) review the results with you privately. Then we schedule a time to meet to plan your personalized Wedding Service. Then comes your Rehearsal and special Day!

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

    I earned the Master of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, CA, in June 1963. In April, 1964, I was ordained an American Baptist Pastor. I have taken graduate studies at the University of Iowa, three theological seminaries, and several training courses, including Pre-Marriage and Marriage Counseling, Wedding Planning, and others. I have served as solo or senior Pastor of 7 churches in IA, SD, MI, DC, and as Executive Director of Churches United of the Quad Cities (Iowa-Illinois), in which I worked with 130 churches representing 25 denominations. I am well trained in the wedding and marriage traditions and teachings of virtually every Christian church and can help any couple adapt their wedding to their shared backgrounds.
