The cost of all this magic

Because your wedding ceremony will be one-of-a-kind, I won't be able to tell you exactly what my fee will be until we’ve had a chance to talk.  

This is what I can tell you

A simple mid-week elopement with just the two of you and two witnesses starts at $350.  

A hand-crafted, unique and personalized wedding ceremony, totally fabulous and reflective of your love story, will likely be in the range of $1,500-$2,000.  This is inclusive of meetings and research, a custom-written script with script approval, meetings and rehearsal, officiating, paperwork, and anything else that might come up between now and your wedding date.  

My fee is high, my service is extraordinary.  If you believe as I do that the ceremony is the most important element and the actual reason for the day, you will understand this.  If the ceremony is not as important to you and more of a thing to get through on the way to the party… absolutely no judgement!  But I am probably not your officiant.  

Let's make a plan for a free consultation so that we can determine if we are a good fit.  Once we have determined that we want to work together to create your ceremony, a letter agreement will be provided outlining our discussion.  A non-refundable retainer fee of 50% is required to hold your date and time.  The balance will be due prior to the wedding ceremony.   

Over the next several months leading up to your wedding, I will work with you to prepare your bespoke marriage ceremony.
