Our Services and Fees
General Pricing Guidelines for Wedding Services
All of the HeartLight officiants enjoy meeting couples in person, hearing their love story and learning about the visions and dreams they have for their wedding day.
We perform many destination weddings and meetings in person are not always possible. Meetings by Skype and conference phone calls are available for brides and grooms who are planning their weddings from a distance.
Through your joint participation in the decisions and planning of your ceremony, you will heighten your awarenss of your beliefs and attitudes, articulate your values and discover added meaning and depth in your relationship.
You will have the oportunity to choose or write yor own promises and vows, decide how long your ceremony will be, and include as many additions as you want. Our approach is to highlight who you are as a couple and incorporate the words and traditions that resonate with you.
Securing your date on the HeartLight Calendar
When you reserve your wedding date, via deposit, you will receive a contract assuring you will have a professional, ordained, legal officiant for your wedding.
The fee to secure your date is $100 and is included in the fee for your wedding. It can be paid through the Paypal button on this page. The remainder of the fee for your ceremony is due at your rehearsal or on the day of your wedding.
