- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I keep my pricing in line with the situation. If you feel the fees I have stated are too high please let me know so we can see if there is a place we can agree. My weddings are priced to cover the cost of; advertising, travel, preparation time, and wedding time. In the case of a rehearsal my fees are fairly low.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First is a conversation, either in person, phone, Skype or FaceTime. This is a time for me to listen to how they picture their perfect day. Often, those ideas need to be clarified, and through a series of questions and answers the couple can make clear to themselves and to me the wedding of their dreams. Next we'll schedule dates and times. I have simple contract to complete so that we're clear on next steps regarding meetings, directions, rehearsal and most important of all the wedding. I remain available for conversations, and any changes or of updates to wedding plans right up to the last minute.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am an Ordained Minister of Centers for Spiritual Living and currently am the Senior Minister and Leader of The Unity of Beaverton Church in Beaverton, OR. I have been in ministry for more than 20 years.
