- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
$280. This amount includes officiating the ceremony and varies with ~ traveling to location, developing the ceremony and vows, and presence at rehearsal. My wife, Katie, lends a hand in all of these. She can also give any pre-ceremony help to the bride's party if desired. You can also go and see a short video of Dave
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
You request a quote on Thumbtack for your wedding. I send you a quote. From this, you look at my quote, profile, web site, and reviews. Then you may message me or call me. We have a short talk. I get the basic information about your wedding ~ names, email, phone number, date, time, and venue. You hire me. I send you a contract. This gives you more details about what's included in your wedding package and each of our responsibilities. With all the preliminaries done, I begin to go over details for the wedding. Often I help with vows. These conversations help me put initial ideas together for the ceremony. I send you an initial ceremony you can add, subtract, or substitute just about anything. We go over ceremony and anything special you want me to say. I don't stop until you're completely ecstatic about your ceremony. Couple acquires marriage license. Then, we wait for the day. We arrive half an hour early; so, there are no worries. A chosen person hands me an envelope with the marriage license and my fee. Go over any last minute changes in the ceremony, perform the personalized ceremony on time, sign the certificate, and present the couple with their copy of their souvenir marriage license. I then mail the township's and state's copy of the marriage certificate. Job well done. Thank you for your trust. Hopefully, you will leave me a stellar review on Thumbtack.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have had a lot of training with all aspects of giving presentations to small and large groups. And of course, I've given presentations for some 50 years now.
