Two Witnesses are Required
(If you need witnesses, I can usually locate some and their fee is $10 each payable directly to them. It is easier for me to find witnesses in the evening than during the day. Worst case scenario, we can ask "anyone" who may be in the area where you get married. People are generally more than happy to help!)
**NON-REFUNDABLE Deposits are required to save the date and time and are considered earned upon receipt.
Missouri - You may obtain your marriage license and wed on the same day.
Kansas - There is a three day waiting period. So, for example, if you order your marriage license on a Monday, you can pick it up and wed on Thursday.
Wedding Services – For All Weddings and Elopements
**It is my duty to complete and turn in your marriage license on wedding day. KS and MO Statutes require that I turn return the original to the court where it was issued to you.
**Unlimited phone, text, and e-mail access to your officiant and a customized ceremony just for you.
**All weddings (other than elopements) include ONE sit down face to face get to know you and brainstorming session. Additional face to face meetings are $50.
** The point of an Elopement is that it is spontaneous, so a face to face meeting is not typically an option.
**Weddings more than 20 miles one way from my home will be charged a reasonable mileage fee to be determined at the time of booking.
Sunrise chapel is created out of a 15 year desire to offer wedding couples a place to take their vows in a smaller, less expensive venue. It is designed around the concept that less is more. We offer it as an alternative to a courthouse ceremony. The chapel seats 4 and stands 6 without seating., in addition, the officiant is on site and I also travel to your ceremony location in all corners of Iowa and beyond.
