Choosing the right officiant is one of the most important decisions you’ll make during the wedding planning process, because the way your ceremony feels will be something you and your families will remember forever.  I work closely with each couple to create a fully customized ceremony that celebrates their unique relationship, and my sample scripts are for the sole purpose of getting an idea of the kind of script you’d prefer.  Each script is then tailored to your specific requests.
I want you to feel comfortable with booking my services, which is why I offer a free, no-obligation consultation with me before you sign a agreement. I typically conduct these initial consultations via phone.  I will hold your wedding date for 5 days before you would need to sign a agreement.
Once you’ve signed your agreement and paid the 50% deposit, I will make contact with you to schedule a planning meeting. This meeting can happen over the phone or in person.  We will discuss what you feel is important to include in your ceremony, and I want to get to know the two of you to learn about your relationship. This information will help me with writing your ceremony to make sure it reflects your beliefs and personalities..
Following your planning meeting, I will provide you with a few documents that will help you will selecting your ceremony style, vows, etc. I will write a draft of your ceremony and email it to you for your review.  You can revise your draft ceremony as much as you’d like until it is the exact wedding ceremony you want, and then simply email your edited draft back to my team.  I/we want it to feel perfect – if you need additional suggestions or guidance, I am happy to help at no additional charge.
I will arrive at your venue approximately 30 minutes early to help coordinate with your attendants and vendors, and then to get ready for the ceremony.  I am more than happy to work with other wedding professionals, and I am comfortable with photographers taking pictures during the ceremony.  At the conclusion of your ceremony, I try to stick around to take pictures.  If you’d like, I can also bless the food during the reception at no extra cost.  It’d be my pleasure.
