WEDDING Officiant QUOTE for laura and thomas


Dear Laura and Thomas-

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding and thanks for your inquiry! 

At this time, I am available for your wedding ceremony.

My quote includes all of the following:

Wedding Ceremony Consultation. We’ll talk about how you want the ceremony to “look.” I’ll review ceremonies with both traditional and contemporary components and get an idea of what best reflects the two of you as a couple. We’ll talk about the order of service, wedding party roles, and family members and friends who you might like to include. 

This usually lasts an hour or so, and is when I take the time to get to know you both as a couple--I will ask some questions about how you met, family, etc. This helps me most with your vows and based on your initial information, and I'll tailor your ceremony to your wishes be it modern, traditional, or secular. When you're ready you'll schedule a time to meet at my office.

Customized ceremony. I create each ceremony from the first word to the last. This means it will be unique to you (and your guests). Creating one-of-a-kind ceremonies is one of the reasons I enjoy working together with couples as it makes the experience both personal and heartfelt. Your ceremony will be exactly as you'd like it--be it traditional, contemporary, or a combination of both. I'll also send suggested readings, and you will complete a survey of ceremony components to help me get a feel for the style that suits you best.

Vows. I will help/coach you through your personal vow writing and then help incorporate them into the ceremony. This is scarier than it sounds but during your ceremony it is the sweetest moment (and sometimes funniest)--plus the one that both you and your guests remember. If you don't want this component, no worries.

Special Ceremony Components. If you'd like. this will include a sand ceremony, hand fasting, unity candle or other special "mini-ceremonies" within your wedding ceremony. We'll explore (many) options and together find the one that best suits you. 

Final review meeting. After the ceremony is written for you, and we have finalized readings, family/friend participation, vows etc. we’ll talk in person or by phone to be sure we have everything covered. 

Your wedding day! I will be there 45-60 minutes before to check last details and see both of you before we meet together for your vows.

The fee. My fee for all services is $300.

I require a 50% ($150) deposit which will secure the date and from there we’ll start the ceremony planning. The balance of $150 will be due 14 days before your wedding date.

The Agreement for Officiant services should be completed if you choose to proceed with hiring me and reserving your date. You may complete that here

The $150 deposit may then be made at:

I would be honored to be your officiant, and look forward (hopefully!) to getting to know you both. 

Once the deposit is made, you may also schedule a convenient time for our initial meeting at: and choose “Wedding Ceremony Consultation”. We'll meet at my office in Covington, unless other arrangements are made. 

If you prefer to schedule the initial consultation before booking, please do so at Note that your date will remain open until booking.
