Wedding Officiant

II will work closely with each couple to create a fully customized ceremony that celebrates their unique relationship, and never deliver a generic “cookie cutter” ceremony.

​I consider myself to be professional, non-denominational officant. I will create a memorable, heartfelt experience for you and your wedding guests. For more information on my values and philosophy, read About Me. Whether you are interested in something short and sweet, or a complicated interfaith or multicultural wedding ceremony, I am happy to collaborate with you to make your wedding ceremony exactly what you’re looking for.

Wedding ceremony packages includes the following:

 

Initial Consultation – I want you to feel totally comfortable booking my services, which is why I offer a free, no-obligation consultation with you before you ever sign a contract or make a agreement. We can do that meeting over Skype, FaceTime, or phone, but if you would prefer to meet in person somewhere near to Central KY we can certainly do so.

 

Planning Meeting – Once you’ve signed your contract and paid the 50% reservation fee, I will be in touch to schedule a planning meeting. This meeting normally happens in person, but it can also be done via video or phone call as well. I will ask you questions about what you feel is important to include in your ceremony and get to know the two of you and learn about your relationship. This information will help in writing your ceremony to make sure it reflects your beliefs and personalities. ​

Ceremony Editing – Following your planning meeting, I will write a full draft of your ceremony and email it to you for your review. You can revise your draft ceremony as much as you’d like until it is the exact wedding ceremony you want, and then simply email your edited draft back to me. 

The Ceremony – I will arrive at your wedding early to help coordinate with your attendants and vendors and get ready for the processional. I am more than happy to work with other wedding professionals, and are perfectly comfortable with photographers taking pictures anywhere they would like during the ceremony. My goal is to help create a wonderful experience for you and your guests. ​

The Marriage License – Although it’s your responsibility to get the marriage license before the wedding, I will take care of signing it afterward and filing it with the proper office. You’ll also get a copy of the license for you to keep, in case you need it for your records or on your honeymoon.

​I would love to find out more about you and your wedding plans – to find out more or to check availability for your wedding date, please contact me today.

​Thank you, Jeff
