Our Services and Fees
General Pricing Guidelines for Wedding Services
Rev. Tom and Hannah 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. Conference phone calls are available for brides and grooms who are planning their weddings from a distance.
You will have the opportunity to choose or write your 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.

The fee to secure your date is $100 and is included in the fee for your wedding. It can be paid through the Payment button on this page.
