The 1st Step

 The First Meeting
The initial meeting, which lasts for about 30 minutes, is an opportunity to get to know one another. You will be asked specific questions regarding your ceremony. It is also your chance to ask me anything questions as well. It is my goal to meet your needs. I will help you organize your thoughts regarding your ceremony. Please come with as much information about your wedding as possible.


You will not be officially “booked” until you confirm that I have been chosen to officiate your ceremony. During the wedding season, it is common to have several requests for the same date and time. Your notice of intention is made by placing a non-refundable deposit of $125. This makes it possible for me to turn away others who may ask for the same date and time. The full payment is due 1 week prior to the ceremony.

The 2nd Step    Premarital Counseling
Premarital counseling is highly recommended. Topics include, conflict resolution, working through differences, assessing marriage goals, coming out to family and friends. The cost of premarital sessions is additional to the wedding fee.
Counseling should be booked as soon as possible. Please do not wait to book sessions a few weeks before the wedding.
All counseling must be paid in advance.
Wedding Day

I will arrive at the wedding venue 45 minutes prior to the start time. If a wedding is set to start at noon, I will arrive at 11:15am. Be mindful that there may be another wedding scheduled after yours. Your time allowance is one hour and thirty minutes after your wedding start time. In other words, I anticipate being finished no later than an hour and a half after your wedding start time. It is important that your wedding start on time.
