Your Wedding Ceremony Consultation

Lets set an appointment for your free, no obiligation phone consult...

Remember I have many questions for you. 

Before I can give you an accurate quote I need specific details...


While on the phone, I can let you know if I am available for your wedding date, answer all of your questions and give you some helpful ideas.  


At that time, we set an appointment for your detailed wedding ceremony consult, in my office or at your home. I will have you answer a questionnaire to personalize your wedding ceremony as well as listen to all your wishes. 


~ Ceremonies average between 25-60 mins. The length of the ceremony is your choice.

~ Yes, you can include (your) children. 

~ Yes, you can include your pets... As long as they are leashed and your location allows animals.

~ Yes, I can preform your ceremony anywhere in Oregon or    Washington. Additional mileage fees may occur.

 

I will personalize your ceremony and customize your vows, if you wish. It is always exciting to incorporate special elements – unity sands, a unity candle, vows to your step children, gifts to your parents, ethnic influences and or family traditions. Any of which will make your ceremony more exciting, romantic and personal. Or we can keep it simple romantic and sweet.


During your consult, the fee is paid to reserve your date.

 Because, I will not book another wedding on your date, your base deposit of 240.00 is nonrefundable.


After your consult, I will be available to address your continued questions or concerns via email, phone or text.


I will arrive early to the rehearsal, and we will go through the motions to make sure things go smoothly on your wedding day.


The day of your wedding, I will also arrive early to your ceremony to make sure everything is moving accordingly and beautiful memories are made... 


I look forward to Officiating your Wedding Ceremony!

Rehearsal fee

A wedding reheasal is recommend for weddings parties with more than four members. Especially if children are involved in your ceremony. Rehearsal fee is an additional 60.oo 


Rituals Fee

Some rituals may require props, such as a unity candle (20.00) or unity sands( 25.oo +). If I provide these props an additional charge will be added as you will keep your items to rekindle your commitment on your anniversary. 


Non Refundable Fee

I will not book another wedding on your wedding date. For that reason my base fee of 240.00 is non refundable. 


Mileage fee

My base fee is 240.00 for ceremonies located inside the Vancouver city limits. 


Destination Weddings

If your wedding ceremony takes place outside of the Vancouver City limits a one way mileage fee of 1.00 per mile is added.

For instance, it is 42 miles to Beacon Rock Park from Vancouver WA. The mileage fee would be $42.
