What You Really Wanted to Know: What Is This Going to Cost?
It depends on what type of wedding ceremony suits you, how much time you need with me, and how far away you are. All packages include lots of phone and email contact, the ceremony itself, and your license mailed to your State within 3 - 5 days. New Jersey weddings and Pennsylvania weddings have slightly different requirements and laws, which we'll discuss. All packages include unlimited phone, text, and email contact. It's important that you two have exactly what is right for you, so here are the options:
You looked at each other and said, "Let's elope!" New Jersey doesn't have Justices of the Peace, so what do you do? That's where I come in. Baby's Breath is my elopement ceremony. It's short and sweet and it's built for two, meant as an alternative to a court clerk or a judge. Write your own vows, or I'll use a simple ceremony. Most ceremonies $300. This ceremony includes a phone consultation with me, and I can recommend several locations in our area that might be the perfect backdrop. Private homes are also great locations. All you need is a license and two witnesses!
You can't wait until that big day - only it's really a small, intimate day. Maybe it's a backyard wedding, maybe it's a lakeside ceremony at a state park. There are around 20 or 30 guests, and maybe a small wedding party. Daisies is a budget-friendly package at 300-350. I'll meet with you and personalize your ceremony, perform the ceremony itself, and of course file your paperwork. Use your own venue or I'll make some suggestions. Perfect for backyard ceremonies!
My most popular wedding ceremony package, Hydrangeas offers a much more customized ceremony, which strongly reflects the two of you. I will include some details about your partnership. I'll also suggest readings to make it your own, and you can invite a guest reader or two if you'd like. If you'd like to include unity candle ceremonies, family creation ceremonies for your kids or other elements, we can do that too. This package is ideal for 50 or more guests. This ceremony includes in-person wedding ceremony consultations with me, your friendly officiant. 350 - 450.
Hand built to your specifications. We get to really use our imaginations! First, we'll meet with you and then we'll write your love story, which will be the centerpiece for your ceremony. Then, we'll include your friends, family, music, readings, and any other elements you desire. This is the best choice for large weddings, expecting more than 120 guests. You might want to include a sand ceremony, family creation ceremony, honor family members, or have someone sing. You'll agree on every delightful word, and your guests will have the memory of a lifetime. Multiple meetings are encouraged. 450-700.
Interested in the Sand Ceremony, a Handfasting, the Hand Ceremony, or another special element? We can include them with your package, and help you design them to be a highlight of your wedding.
I request a fifty-percent deposit to hold your date, and the balance two weeks prior to the wedding day.
