Our Services and Fees
General Pricing Guidelines for Wedding Services
HeartLight Wedding Officiants enjoy meeting couples in person and getting to know them before the wedding. However, 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.
When you reserve your wedding date, via deposit, you will receive a selection of beautiful Heart Light Weddings and a selection of wedding poems and readings. Our ceremonies include spiritual, interfaith, non-denominational, traditional, romantic, secular, theme weddings, alternative, hand-fasting, and LGBT.
You may choose to use one of our Heartlight Ceremonies as is, or you may use the ceremonies as templates to create your unique ceremony. Couples are not limited to Heartlight Ceremonies but may use any ceremony from any other source. Your officiant is available to assist you and answer any questions as you go through the process of creating your wedding ceremony.
