Officiant Pricing Guide
NOTE: IF YOU TRULY CANNOT AFFORD BY FEES LET ME KNOW AND WE WILL WORK IT OUT.
All pricing includes whatever you need in terms of preparation and advice, plus all travel to and from your event. I encourage everyone I work with to contact me at any time and as often as you need with any questions, concerns or ideas. I strive to give you the occasion you want and deserve.
For any events that are distant enough that it makes it necessary for me to stay overnight I ask an additional $75.00 to help with lodging expenses.
For full preparation, face to face, Skype, telephone and e-mail consultation,
$400 Includes travel and same day rehearsal
$500 If I have to stay overnight because of distance or previous day rehearsal
For separate rehearsals of the ceremony I ask an additional $100 plus travel. I do not demand that you hold a rehearsal anytime. However, if having a rehearsal puts you and your wedding party at ease and if you have a wedding party larger than a maid of honor and a best man, then you may want to have a rehearsal. I have conducted over 30 weddings and am an excellent director. I don't mind making adjustments "on the fly." Sometimes we just don't know what works best until we are actually into the ceremony and we let it flow naturally.
To secure the date I ask $100 deposit which is deducted from the total fee.
For full help preparing and then performing a memorial service or funeral I ask $250, plus travel at $0.575 (2015 rate) per mile.
Baby Namings and New Life Ceremonies
For full preparation and performance of services for families and children I ask a fee of $150, plus travel.
