- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My min pricing is $100+ for the ceremony and filing the paperwork. There are additional costs dependent upon locations/rehearsals/meetings prior to or added supplies during the ceremony. Also an added fee for long travel. There is a deposit for most weddings once a time and date is set/requested, as at that time, I will turn away other requests for service on that day and time. I am a full time mobile minister and service roughly 250+ weddings per year. I do not like to do business during ceremonies. I do request all payments be made prior to the wedding start. I believe during and after the ceremony the couple should be focus3ed on photographs and celebrating with their family and not dealing with payments. I do use different cash apps for my deposits and fees. Or cash can be used if necessary. You will receive a text message either the night before or the morning of as I as a final check in and request for final payment. Also I collect the paperwork prior to the ceremony to make sure everything is in good order. Everything I do from starting to finish is to create a stress free experience. As far as your officiant goes. If I do my job right it's one less thing for you to worry about.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Normally I like to get to knowi them with some probing questions' . . I . . .. . .. 3e3 we... l . /I send a questionnaire to get some personal details on their likes and dislikes. Spiritual background or lack of. Details on thier relationship. Then I create a spe1cial down-to-earth ceremony that will hopefully feel personal and unique to them.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been a student of religion, spirituality and history my whole life. I have studied and experienced many many religions in my own search for enlightenment. In the end I found God within my own heart. A very personal relationship that's grows and evolves with time. I have a Doctorate in Divinity also a Associates in Business Management. I love education and knowledge. And most of all I love weddings! I know crazy for a guy right! But it's true. I am blessed to have a job that I love.
