Officiating a wedding ceremony
This is Your day, and the ceremony that I write will be based on the information that you give me at our initial discussion (allow at least an hour for our meeting!), and on subsequent emails. I will guide you through the process of creating your ceremony, and you will be involved as much or as little as you wish. I have done this Way more times than you have ;-) and I bring my years of experience creating All Sorts of ceremonies to the table. Since 2009 I have performed over 200 ceremonies, ranging from “quickies”, which actually fit on an index card, to traditional religious services on a pretty grand scale, for couples with 30 person wedding parties and as many as 350 guests. As an Interfaith Minister as well as a Justice of the Peace, it's my job - and my pleasure! - to do All Sorts of weddings and other services, so what ever sort of ceremony will make you happy, That’s what we’ll make happen!
Most of the time I will rehearse you and your wedding party on or about the day before the cremony, though at times this is unneccessary. Additionally, if you would like, I can say a blessing at the beginning of your wedding meal.
I ask a $50 downpayment, to hold your date on my calendar. Please note: for my fee, I ask that each couple pay me what they feel my services are worth To Them. When I know the scale of your ceremony (based on several Subjective factors), I can tell you what I have been paid in the past for similar ceremonies, if you would like a range.
I am based in Brookfield CT, and while I prefer to work within a half-hour ride from home, I will happily discuss traveling for your wedding. So far, my most distant ceremony was in Hawaii!
