Why can't the Officiant give you a straight answer when you call and ask 'How much do you cost?"
Wedding fees range depending on the type of service, the date, and the distance to travel. Weekday, downtown elopement/paperwork only packages have a minimal cost, whereas weddings with more than two witnesses and include a custom ceremony, paperwork, event planning support and extended travel on a weekend are industry standard prices. (*Although I have 12 years of experience, this is not reflected in my prices!)
Barter and exchange options are available to ensure accessibility for couples. All same-sex couples travelling from countries where marriage equality does not exist receive a FREE Wedding Elopement Package (Witnesses not included). #loveislove
See the Drop Down Menu: Additional ceremony rituals for cultural infusion are at no extra charge such as sofreh explanations, honey exchanges, veil & cord, handfastings, etc. I have done hundreds of weddings and I have samples of everything that exists to use as a draft template to plan each customized ceremony to suit you!
To save couples money, the full package includes a walk through of the ceremony with the couple, which is often a better alternative than the full rehearsal.
However, if you still wish to support at an official rehearsal with family and friends there is an extra service fee of $150- $180/hr.
