Information about my Fees
When calling around and asking what the Officiant charges for their services you must ask...is your fee "all inclusive"? If they say, "no I charge additional for rituals", before you know it, their $250 fee just went up into the medium range. This is not an area of your wedding you want to go cheap on. You do not want to hire someone who just got ordained online and has performed only a handful of weddings.
Remember...we only have one chance to do this right! There are no do-overs.
My fees take into account many different factors such as venue location (know that all of us charge mileage), the date, complexity of the ceremony, meetings for planning sessions and the actual day of your ceremony...etc.
Payment Plans? Some do...some don't.
I offer flexible payment plans to suit your budget needs along with a Contract assuring you that I will be held to the agreed upon Contract terms. To make it easier for you, once the retainer is paid and the Contract is signed, I allow for payments via PayPal (without any surcharges) to be made, in any amounts the couple wishes. All I ask is that I am paid in full twenty days before your event date. I accept Visa, MasterCard, and checks for your convenience. Payments can always be made here on my website for your convenience.
Under my services, I will:
Provide you with a "Service Contract" holding me to everything we discuss in person in writing.
Shows up on your wedding day and not a replacement at the last minute that you have never met before.
Provide you with a beautiful custom crafted ceremony.
Submit your Marriage License to the local County Clerk the NEXT business day. (I have legally 30 days to submit).
Fulfill all of my other duties (take a look at the comparison chart here in the drop-down box above for more information).
If you would like to learn more about how I can be of service to you both, then I encourage you to take advantage of my complimentary consultation. We can discuss your ideas, and I will be able to give you a fair quote based on your needs.
Note: Never...under any circumstance allow an Officiant of Minister to hold your Marriage License after the wedding ceremony for failure to pay your fee to them. This is illegal and could potentially get them relieved of their ability to perform weddings as an Officiant or Minister in the State of Texas!
