Introduction: Special COVID-19 note: It is important to me that you and your loved ones stay safe. I practice social distancing and wear a mask before and after the ceremony. I am willing to wear one during the ceremony if requested, and do ceremony planning via phone/email to minimize contact. As a woman offering wedding officiation, I provide a flexible, personalized wedding service which is as traditional or as unique as you desire. I also offer weddings in American Sign Language, if participants happen to be Deaf/Hard of Hearing. I love engaging with couples to create a wedding experience which uniquely reflects their personalities, preferences and situation. I love to bring a caring, supportive, enthusiastic presence into the process of creating a the couple's "perfect day", whatever that looks like for them. Note: I rarely book weddings more than 6 months in advance, but if you want to request me for a date more than 6 months away, send me a message and we'll see what we can work out.

So glad I booked Tess to do our wedding. She responded quickly. Our wedding was unconventional & it didn’t phase her at all. She walked us through the process. She was just great all around & made our wedding super special.

Tessi was excellant and very accommodating to all the changes I made to the ceremony. If you are looking for and officiant I would definitely go with Tessi! She is very professional and open to all ideas you have. We did a handfasting ceremony and she was already knowledgeable about the ceremony so if your doing something similar Tessi is the way to go!

FAQs

  • 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 usually 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 virtually 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 communication, 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 Institute 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.
