We reached out Tessi to officiate our marriage on a whim and it was one of the best decisions we made. She was incredibly professional and responsive and provided exactly what we needed to make our special day what we envisioned during this crazy time. Our ceremony was intimate (just the two of us, and Tessi,) and we are planning to book her again sometime in the future when we can have a ceremony with a larger family gathering. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to officiate their wedding.May 12, 2020Verified

My whole family found Tessi to be an incredible talent. I was moved by her words during the ceremony and my now wife said Tessi was very enjoyable to have as an officiant. Thank you Mrs. Rickabaugh!Oct 7, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My base fee for a wedding is $100 with the ceremony I provide. Customizing the ceremony to fit exactly your ideas is an additional $25, and facilitating/attending the rehearsal ranges $25-$50, and travel can cost an additional $50-$150 depending on how far from Columbia/Fulton/Jefferson City area I have to travel. I offer pre-wedding consultation and counseling sessions as well; contact me for details and pricing! I do not book weddings more than 6 months out, so if you're planning far in advance, feel free to contact me closer to the day!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My new-customer process is as varied as my customer! Some people just need an officiant to show up, ready to perform a marriage, others would prefer to meet in advance and carefully craft exactly the service they desire. I'm flexible, depending on the needs and the situation, but I always strive to be easy to work with, prompt in my communnication, and fully invested in your needs.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'm an ecumentical minister, serving primarily in the field of spiritual direction, and have completed the training program of Shalem Insititute for Spiritual Formation, Washington, DC. I'm also a certified, licensed American Sign Language interpreter, which means I'm able to perform a wedding in either ASL or English, or a combination.
