What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I have a two tiered pricing system in NYC that includes a discount fee for elopements and small weddings under 20 people. Fees vary according to time & distance of location and complexity of the ceremony. My fees tend to be average but my service to my couples never is.
What types of customers have you worked with?
No matter how simple, there's no such thing as a common type of wedding. Every wedding should be as unique as the individuals who come to me.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I can honestly say that I'm proud of every ceremony I create. I have done a range of unusual ceremonies that required more creativity sometimes. For example, at the request of a Spanish and French speaking couple (I perform weddings in those languages too) I created a Pirate Wedding. Everyone, including this pirate minister, dressed as pirates before boarding a boat that circled NYC harbor. Before ordination I was in theatre so I loved writing and performing this wedding.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
It's about trust and rapport. Fees can usually be reached by agreeement. Speak to me on the phone or by Skype first. If we communicate well, we'll work well together. This is an important day in your life, and I'll do my best to honor your wishes and guide you through the process here in NYC. I want this day to be as stress free as possible for you. Also, feel free to ask for other professional referrals.
