Packages & Pricing

A Simple Ceremony


travel fee may apply (see below)

A ceremony that is personalized and as unique as your relationship. We’ll work together to find the readings and elements to make your wedding ceremony reflect your own vision and personalities. Choose from any of my sample ceremonies or we can create something completely different, whether it is short and sweet, romantic, or eclectic and quirky.

Package includes:

  • Customized ceremony script (usually 15-30 min total)
  • Unlimited phone and email correspondence
  • In-person meeting on request (near Chelsea, preferred)
  • Performance of ceremony on wedding day
  • Keepsake ceremony copy
  • Marriage license signing
  • License mailed directly at post office

Note: Rehearsal may be added separately. If you are not having a formal rehearsal, I am happy to discuss the plan with you ahead of time and help coordinate your wedding party just before we start your ceremony.

Ceremony with Rehearsal


travel fee may apply (see below)

This package includes everything in A Simple Ceremony plus a complete rehearsal at the site of your wedding. I recommend a rehearsal if you have more than a few people in your wedding party, or if you just want to feel like you know what you’re doing.

Includes coordination of ceremony from start to finish. Processional and recessional walk through, additional elements and guest readings. We’ll talk about how to walk, where to stand, what to do with your hands, and more.

  • Please allot one hour for rehearsal

Elopements & Tiny Weddings


Only available Mon-Fri in Chelsea-Ann Arbor area

The essence of simplicity, these tiny weddings can be held in someone’s backyard, living room, or at a local park or restaurant. See mini-ceremonies for short samples to personalize. Elopements can be casual or formal and usually consist of just you and 2 to 10 guests.

Package includes:

  • Short ceremony script (usually 5-8 min total)
  • Unlimited phone and email correspondence
  • Performance of ceremony on wedding day
  • Keepsake ceremony copy
  • Marriage license signing
  • License mailed directly at post office

Just Sign the License


Only available Mon-Thu in Chelsea

Alternative to a courthouse wedding, this is a basic signing of your marriage license without guests or a formal ceremony. You’ll need to have your marriage license, bring two witnesses, and be ready to say, “I Do.” Completely casual, meet me in Chelsea at a coffee shop or park, and you’re done in under 15 minutes.

Package includes:

  • Minimal legal ceremony
  • Marriage license signing
  • License mailed directly at post office
