My pricing is a suggested price. ($125 for wedding - $200 for wedding & rehearsal) Sometimes couples can pay a little more or little less. I consider my time with you as a very valuable ministry and promise to do my best to honor your desires while also honoring my calling as a Pastor. It is a privilege serving you as your officiant. Due to many cancellations in the last few months, I'm asking for $50 non-refundable deposit. I wish I didn't have to do that, but time spent on unfulfilled ceremonies, and blocking dates that are ultimately not filled, can be quite costly. Thank you for this consideration.
Typically, I will be contacted or make contact with a couple by phone. We can then exchange more details about their desires for the ceremony. I will email several sample ceremonies to the prospective bride/groom so they can look over possibilities to make their service the best for their needs. Sometimes, the couple already has their service planned out and that is fine as well.
I do attend weddings on a fairly regular basis as an invited guest and observe the unique ways different ministers officiate those weddings. I am currently employed as a Pastor and serve in my church every Sunday and throughout the week. I do sing if that might be something you would like to include in your ceremony.
