Creating the Ceremony
The process of creating a personalized wedding ceremony includes getting to know the couple through many phone calls, emails, and an in-person meeting when schedules allow. A large wedding binder file with many sample ceremonies/readings/vows and other possible ideas will be provided to help with the creative process. Officiant services include support for the couple from the beginning of the process, once the wedding date is reserved, through the filing of the marriage license after the wedding is complete.
Fees for officiant services are based upon driving distance (the first 50 miles are included) and the size of the wedding, including both the number of guests and the size of wedding party. A couple who contacts Sacred Moments within 30 days of the wedding date will be charged a slightly higher fee due to the time constraint on creating and preparing for the ceremony.
To reserve a date for Sacred Moments officiant services a couple must submit a non-refundable retainer deposit no less than half the amount of the total fee along with a signed contract. After this is complete the date is reserved for you! The remainder of the balance is due two weeks before the wedding date.
