Custom wedding ceremony
The custom wedding ceremony (+ travel outside of Chittenden County). It includes at least one 60-90 minute conversation either in person or via phone/Skype/Hangout/Facetime - or your personal preference in Telephony. It doesn't automatically include the rehearsal, though that's something we can absolutely negotiate. During our collaboration, we'll discuss your relationship, your ideas for the ceremony, readings, and other ritual elements. You might well go away from our chat with some homework around additional information to send me. About 7-10 days before your wedding, I'll send you a first draft, which you can edit to your heart's desire. We'll keep tossing it back and forth until you have exactly the ceremony you want. Generally, I get it in one shot, or one and a couple tweaks. That's not to blow my own horn so much as to reassure you that it's not a complicated process. In fact, my primary goal is to make the ceremony the least stressful part of the whole Marital Process. To reserve your date, you can make a $100 non-refundable deposit at vermontweddingofficiant.com/contact. The balance is due the day of the ceremony, and it's often easiest to put the check in the same envelope with the marriage license and designate a responsible person to hand it to me when I arrive. That way I don't have to go chasing you down for it afterwards.
