About: My message and ceremony are brief--total ceremony just 15-25 minutes depending on the number in the wedding party and the weather if outdoors. My approach is a traditional Christian wedding, but with some humor. It's positive, not preachy. But I can do simpler, shorter ceremonies too. Also, I arrive early to the venue on the day of the wedding and run interference, run errands, step in to solve any crises. $150 for ceremony. $250 for rehearsal and ceremony. Extra if traveling more than 15 miles one way. I have great reviews on weddings.com and have done hundreds of weddings, mostly outdoor venues. I've been a pastor for 30 years and am 56 years old. No payment till rehearsal. No contract. You can back out at any time. I've never missed a scheduled wedding and my couples have all been very happy with my services. I'm just a few miles south of Austin, and I used to charge just cost of gas for long trips like 40-120 miles. Then I realized that I was driving a couple of hours in some cases and not getting any pay for my time away from wife and family! It wasn't worth it. So now I'm having to charge for gas and for time. So, for example, if I'm driving two hours round trip, I need to charge an extra $150 for the time and gas. You might find someone cheaper closer to you when you add that $150 travel plus $150 for ceremony. And if you have rehearsal the day before, you are talking about two two-hour trips for a total of $300 just for travel, plus $250 for rehearsal and wedding. ($550 total) That's just based on two hour round-trip. I will charge less for less time in the car, and more for more. I'm happy to suggest some possible officiants in your area if this is too much if you want to contact me. I give free advice and guidance anytime.
