Wedding Fee Schedule
If "how much will it cost?" is the first and most important question, I'm probably not your officiant. I do not intend to be the most affordable; rather, I strive to provide an exquisite, high-end, personalized service to couples who value a deeply meaningful wedding ceremony--those couples who want their once-in-a-lifetime nuptials to be a unique and sacred ritual--even if the ceremony is completely secular!
Once I meet with you to clarify your vision for the ceremony, I'll be able to provide a definite, inclusive fee for my services. Here's the basic a-la-carte menu, subject to revision based on circumstances:
Base fee of $500 includes
Create ceremony: conversations with couple, first draft of custom ceremony script, choreography (processional/recessional, places, ritual actions), and cue sheets, unlimited script revisions, digital copy of final keepsake version of script.
Officiate ceremony: arrive 30 minutes prior to ceremony, conduct prayer/meditation with wedding party if desired, provide ceremony cue sheets (to planner/coordinator, musicians, photographers), perform ceremony.
File paperwork: file wedding certificate following the ceremony with appropriate regulatory officials.
Travel up to one hour each way to and from the ceremony.
Rehearsal facilitation (strongly recommended): $100
Travel greater than one hour each way: $25 per hour
Lodging: For mountain or other destination weddings, one night's lodging will be provided by the couple.
Additional services, including wedding day spiritual support, can be negotiated.
Generosity is an essential aspect of our humanity. I provide some ceremonies on a sliding scale, or even gratis, when circumstances require.
Let's value the reverence of your ceremony.
