Your ceremony deserves all the time and attention devoted to every other major part of the wedding day. With my full-service wedding package, I will develop, with your consultation and approval, a complete ceremony including the narrative of your love story, vows, and other ceremonial elements that you wish to add. I will happily provide you with readings and generous resource materials, including music selections, drawing from my broad repertoire of experience.
I will offer a full ceremony draft, for your comments, edits, and feedback, and I will continue to polish the ceremony until it meets with your complete satisfaction. I am prepared to meet and work with your wedding planners, venue representatives, musicians, and other vendors to discuss all aspects of the event.
I will conduct a wedding rehearsal, at your request. Expect me to arrive early and stay late, making sure the legal paperwork is completed properly. After the wedding, you will receive a “keepsake” copy of your ceremony. I provide marriage officiant services in New York City, Connecticut, Long Island, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Upstate New York, along with destination locations. The fee for a full-service, formal wedding ranges between $450 and $900, depending upon ceremony complexity, and rehearsal and travel requirements.
“What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labour, to minister to each other in all sorrow, to share with each other in all gladness, to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories?” George Elliot
