- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I generally charge the quoted fee and that includes the script, a rehearsal if you want one (and I recommend you do) and the wedding ceremony. I live in Mentor so travel time and mileage can increase my cost on far away weddings. PLEASE NOTE: the money I raise goes to a charity, specifically the Police Unity Tour, a 300 mile bicycle ride that honors fallen officers.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
After submitting the quote and being hired, I prepare a sample wedding script for your review. You can add or take away anything you like because this is your ceremony and I want you to be happy with it. After we get the script worked out, if there is a rehearsal, I'll be there to make sure all is ready for the actual ceremony. On the day of the wedding I will be there an hour early to take care of signing the marriage certificate and any last minute questions that might arise.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I was ordained about 9 years ago and have done over 80 weddings. I was ordained over the Internet at the request of a friend and did her wedding. I enjoyed it so much I've continued performing ceremonies all over northern Ohio.
