Here is a fork in the road: what kind of relationship do you want with your officiant, and what level of choice you want for your ceremony. Here are your options:

 1. "Justice of the Peace" - We send an officiant you will know only by name. This person will perform a 7 to 15-minute standard ceremony and sign the paper. In other words, this officiant will perform the basic bureaucratic function, but will provide a pleasant ceremony in doing so. Fee: $150 - $225.

 2. "Personalized Wedding Service" - You will have interviewed our officiants until you find someone who you feel is perfect for you: has a complementary personality and an approach to ceremonies that fits what you want. You and this officiant take the time to get to know one another, and the officiant helps you find/create the appropriate words and rituals to make your wedding ceremony "sing". Fee: $225 - $450.
 
NOTE: If Justice of the Peace is what you want, just select the No. 1 option above, and submit this form. The rest of the questions are for folks who want a personalized wedding.

About wedding fees:
 
Fees vary based on day of week, location of ceremony, minister and time of day.
Personalized ceremony price range: $225 - $450
Justice of the Peace ceremony price range: $150 - $225
EXCEPTIONS:
One Catholic Priest $450 any time

Please advise us about how important fee range is, when considering which minister to choose. Please choose one of these two options:
Price is most important. I want a personal ceremony but it has to fit my budget of maximum $ for the officiant.
Quality of Ceremony and a good personality fit are very important to me. Please let me start by interviewing the minister you think is the best fit and we'll go from there.
