Wedding & Vow Renewal Prices
Our marriage services start at $350 for a simple service with only 2 readings and no rituals. An average ceremony with readings, rituals and other individualizations is $450-$550. Very elaborate, individualized, creative services can range from $600 -$750.
We do offer discounts for Veterans.
An initial, 1-2 hour consultation with the engaged couple, is free, except for the cost of a meal and usually held in a local restaurant so that you can see if we are a good fit personally, creatively and philosophically. If there are any issues that need to be resolved, that may require pre-marital counseling, that can be arranged at the rate of $50 an hour for an in-person meeting.
Our rates are based on 5 things:
(1) Time needed to spend with couple, either on phone, by email or in person to create the service. This can includes time at the wedding rehearsal (extra fee) and one and a half hours on your wedding day. Most services are 20 minutes.
(2) Do you need help writing vows?
(3) Individualized research
(4) Travel time
(5) Distance traveled
We are available for destination weddings but these must be booked at least 6 months ahead. Please note that you may be required to pay additional fees for securing an international license. These fees are not for Everyone's Minister but for the civil authorities of the country you have chosen for your marriage. Some hotels make those arrangements for you.
We also perform "kitchen table" weddings, at my home, for anyone who wants a 5 minute, legal ceremony, perhaps before a destination wedding, birth of a baby, or elopement. These cost $50.
If you are holding your wedding ceremony at either The Ballantyne Hotel or The Carriage House, there are special discounts for you because we partner with those venues.
