Weddings – The Process

The typical flow for our process includes:

  • Initial meeting via email or in person/phone (“kick-the-tires” meeting!). If couple agrees to commit; then they make a deposit (non-refundable) to secure the date and time – $250 deposit.
  • Help the couple when asked: suggesting venue, county marriage licensing procedures, ceremony program format and contents, wedding music, etc.
  • Couple receives an emailed package of sample ceremonies, options, “Readings. Poetry, Prayers, etc.” to help them select their core options.
  • Write and email the Draft Wedding Ceremony script to the couple—this is an interactive process and continues until the ceremony is completed.
  • Finalize the Wedding Ceremony.
  • Coordinate, as needed, any rehearsal including working with the designated wedding planner, site location, and/or DJ as needed.
  • Arrive early for the ceremony—usually 20-30 minutes before start time.
  • Arrive for the wedding rehearsal, if needed (additional amount may be required**)
  • Take the wedding license into possession as soon as possible and complete the needed legalities for state or commonwealth.
  • Prepare the space for the marriage ceremony.
  • Accommodate any required marriage laws for the jurisdiction where ceremony is performed.
  • Sign the marriage license, give the couple their copy, and mail the official copy to the appropriate court clerk—within 24 hours of ceremony
  • Perform the wedding!
