Ceremony Packages and Pricing
Pricing for my services is as is customary in North Carolina for a fully qualified, top-tier, legally ordained (not online ordained), professional wedding officiant. My fees generally range between $200 – $600, and my most popular package falls toward the upper end of this scale. Travel fees may apply if I must travel beyond the Research Triangle area for your rehearsal and wedding ceremony.
ELOPEMENT WEDDING CEREMONY
My short and simple, religious or secular wedding ceremonies.
Each year I perform many elopement weddings for couples who prefer a low key, affordable ceremony, yet desire a more romantic experience than going to the courthouse. My simple and joyful Elopement Ceremonies run between $200 – $350.
PERSONAL TOUCH WEDDING CEREMONY
My thoughtfully personalized, mid-range ceremonies.
In the middle of the Order of Service in your ceremony is a section called The Wedding Address. Church ministers often use this section to deliver a kind of mini-sermon. Being non-denominational, I don't have a particular message to get across to the "congregation," so I make this section the "jewel in the crown" of your wedding ceremony. What distinguishes this mid-range ceremony from my Elopement or Love Story weddings is this: The Wedding Address becomes the highlight of the ceremony. It features a beautiful and meaningful piece of writing that I have thoughtfully selected to fit your values, style, and beliefs as a couple. My Personal Touch Ceremonies run between $350 – $450.
LOVE STORY WEDDING CEREMONY
My most meaningful, top-tier specialty wedding ceremonies.
Love Story weddings are created exclusively for each couple, and feature your personal love story. This specialty ceremony is crafted around you and your beloved. I gather information from the two of you. Then I compose your personal love story: how you met and fell in love, what you love about each other, why you want to marry one other. As the marrying couple, you will know most of the story, but there are secret passages that will be revealed to you as a magical surprise from your fiancé during your ceremony. These weddings are warm, personal, and completely unique to the two of you. Every couple I have created a Love Story ceremony for has absolutely loved it, and their wedding guests have raved about the ceremony for years after the wedding. My uniquely customized Love Story Ceremonies run between $500 – $600.
