My Basic Ceremony is also known as an elopement ceremony. Normally an elopement ceremony is only the bride and groom, but I will provide this ceremony as well if it is a very small wedding of 10 guests or less. This simple ceremony includes an opening and closing prayer, exchange of vows and ring presentation. The basic ceremony is available within 25 miles of Reno/Sparks. Traveling outside the 25 mile radius will add an additional .50 cents per mile round trip. My fee for the basic ceremony on Monday – Thursday is $125, Friday – Sunday is $175. Call for availability.
My Standard Ceremony is the most popular wedding ceremony and is most appropriate for semi-formal weddings. It includes other ceremonial touches such as the presentation of the bride and blessing of the rings, as well as other traditions you might want to include, such as a Unity Ceremony, Biblical readings, remembrance of loved ones who have passed on, or children’s blessings for blended families. Depending on what you would like to include in your wedding, the standard ceremony will be about 15-20 minutes. The standard ceremony is available anywhere in the state of Nevada and California, however mileage fees will apply if more than 25 miles from Reno/Sparks. Our fee for the standard ceremony is $350.
I charge a flat rate of $75 for rehearsals. This includes a blessing of the rehearsal dinner if desired. Travel fees are assessed if applicable.
Due to the high cost of travel, for ceremonies held more than 25 miles from the Washoe County Courthouse, please add an additional $0.50 per mile round trip. If overnight stay is required, only the actual cost of lodging will apply.
I strongly encourage premarital coaching for all couples. Studies show that couples who receive at least 12 hours of premarital coaching reduce their divorce rate more than 50% in the first five years of marriage. I also provide marriage coaching for couples in both one-on-one and group sessions.
