Fees and Options

All couples who book us (AND MENTION THIS OFFER) for a personalized wedding ceremony will receive a gift certificate for a FREE couple’s energy healing session or marriage coaching session (a $150 value!)

We offer two packages – both include initial consultation (currently limited to video chat or phone), unlimited phone or video calls, writing and performing your ceremony, filing of marriage license, a printed and bound copy of your ceremony and a lovely custom designed “suitable for framing” Certificate of Marriage.  

Ceremonies on the following major holidays are an additional $100 to stated fee: New Year’s Eve & Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve & Day.

Gold Package Wedding Ceremony – $350

Our most popular is the Gold Package. It is all inclusive, providing a uniquely personalized ceremony and any add-on components already included (Unity Candle or Sand, Wine and Handfasting, etc).

We specialize in spiritual, secular, non-traditional, and non-denominational/interfaith ceremonies, and truly enjoy working with couples seeking a more unique, personally designed wedding and will happily work with you to give you the ceremony of your dreams.  

To create a uniquely personal ceremony, we ask our clients to complete a questionnaire.  Your answers to questions such as “what do you love about one another”, “what stories would you like to have shared about your relationship”, “what does marriage mean to you” and “what are your hopes for your marriage”  are used to help give me some sense of your personalities and often you will hear your own words echoed back to you in the ceremony itself.  

Silver Package Wedding Ceremony – $250

With the Silver Package, we offer you a choice from several pre-written ceremonies.  If there are aspects of each you like, we’re happy to combine them.  For $25 each, we are happy to include add-on components such as, Ring Warmings, Unity Ceremonies (Candle, Sand, Glass, Tree, etc.), Wine, Whiskey, & Beer Ceremonies and a variety of Handfasting options – these are the origin of the expression ‘tying the knot’ (our specialty to be sure!)  (NOTE:  if you choose a pre-written Handfasting ceremony, there is no additional charge)

Rehearsal – $100

While this is optional, we will happily attend and direct your rehearsal if desired.
