As each couple is unique, fees are quoted on an individual basis. Once we learn exactly what you want and desire for your ceremony, we can offer a fee quote for services; affordable to all budgets. Our fees support the time we invest in writing, crafting and officiating your ceremony. In addition to creating a custom-written ceremony, we most often lead a rehearsal. Rev. Richard Sears serves as “ceremony coordinator” on your wedding day to ensure a prompt and elegant/easy start. In addition, we offer ceremony editing and changes at any time, an assistant when required, wedding planning counsel, vendor referrals and an open phone and email line during our time together.

Out-of-Country Travel: Travel expenses for out-of-country must include hotel accommodations, flight, and travel to and from the airport. Additional costs may be calculated per wedding location confirmation and inputted in the final invoice.
