What I offer as a wedding Officiant is easy to explain. I offer a simple, non-denominational or Secular Joining Ceremony. You can personalize the Ceremony or you can choose from a few that I have to offer and personalize them as well. The ceremony including the procession usually lasts from 15 to 45 minutes.
The fee for this basic Ceremony depends on size, location and preparation needed. At the basic Ceremony I will be at your wedding site at least thirty minutes before your Ceremony begins to discuss placement and the flow of your Ceremony.
If you require me to be at a rehearsal there is a fee of $100.00 for a one hour rehearsal. In my experience most couples do not need the Officiant at the rehearsal which is also how I can keep my fee lower than other Ministers but if you need me and I am available I'd be happy to oblige.
Quite often, couples ask me to officiate their wedding who do not want a religious overtone or who want a simple non- denominational or secular joining. A beautiful ceremony can be built around universal beliefs and according to your needs and wants rather than one religion.
Some folks do not want the difficulty of a large ceremony, months of planning, large family gatherings, renting a hall and a chapel, etc. and want to simply meet, get married in a uncomplicated and humble manner. This is absolutely possible if that is what you both want. I am also open to the venue of your marriage. There are many wonderful places to be married in and around Pittsburgh. Would you like to be married at Phipps Conservatory, The National Aviary, on a Mount Washington Overlook or The Westend Overlook, The Duquesne Incline, PNC Park or Heinz Field, at your local Park, in the Great Outdoors etc.?
