Custom Wedding Ceremony - Your Ceremony, Your Way!Call for price

Thank you for your interest in my services! If you visit my website at http://allfaithweddingminister.com, you will see that my approach to weddings is that the ceremony should reflect the couple, and I will ensure that your ceremony is everything you want, and nothing that you don't. My ceremonies are custom-tailored to best reflect the couples' individuality. Couples will come to me to officiate their wedding for a variety of different reasons. Perhaps they are of differing faiths, or their own faith will not allow them to be married according to its doctrines. Many of my clients consider themselves to be “spiritual, but not religious.” Or some want a secular service, but something more special than they would get from a Justice of the Peace. Upon inquiry, I interview each of my clients to find out what kind of service they want. Once I enter into contract with them, I will provide them with some sample ceremonies, a few past ceremonies, plus other resources from which they can pick and choose whatever resonates with them. I serve all of New Jersey, the New York Metropolitan area, southwestern Connecticut and eastern Pennsylvania.
Terms and Conditions
My basic rate is $400 plus travel fees (usually $25, $50 or $75 depending on the distance from Passaic, NJ). Additional fees also include: * Rehearsal: $125 * Meal Blessing: $25 (No charge if invited to reception and/or rehearsal dinner) Keep in mind, the average cost of the total ceremony, including things like location fees, programs and accessories, marriage license costs, wedding rings, etc. should be about 3%-5% of your wedding budget. If my fees do not fit into that 3%-5% of your budget, I can be flexible if need be. I also offer a 10% discount to those that serve in the military and occasionally offer other promotions as well. Generally, once I receive an inquiry, I will ask for the basic details of the wedding – the names of the bride and groom, and the date, time and location of the wedding. Based on that information, I will generate a contract, which I will send via e-mail. The contract can be returned to me via regular mail, or scanned and e-mailed, or faxed back to me. I also ask for a non-refundable retainer of $150 to secure the date. Once I receive the signed contract and the deposit, I will send you several sample ceremonies, perhaps a few of my previous ceremonies, along with a large volume of other resources of ceremonies and specific ceremony elements (vows, readings, ring ceremonies, etc.). I ask that the balance of the fee be paid on the day of the rehearsal, or if there is no rehearsal, then no less than 3 days prior to the wedding date. Some clients prefer to pay me even a few weeks prior, which is fine as well. Please see my Contract Template for more details.
