     “Audrie was very responsive to all of my questions and was very accommodating the day of our wedding. We loved that our ceremony really symbolized us, and this would not have been possible without Audrie understanding our couple culture!” Rita

  • What Can You Expect?

    • Initial Consultation- we will discuss ceremony details, options & services.  You will leave with a solid quote based upon the estimated time and attention your ceremony will require. At this time we both get to know each other on a personal level. We will be able to address all of your wants and needs in order to make your day special and personal. It is my priority to make sure that you feel confident and comfortable with my services.  If for any reason we discover that I am not the best fit for your ceremony, I will be happy to provide you with contact info for other professional officiants that I would trust with my wedding. You can't lose by coming to a consultation!! 
    • Service Agreement- for something as important as your wedding, it is crucial that you be given a contract that protects you as well as your professional officiant once we decide to move forward.  It's a must!
    • Written Couple-Centered Ceremony- a unique ceremony that incorporates everything that is important to you as a couple. No matter the size or style of your wedding, you will not be getting a lifeless, generically scripted reading. 
    •  Eloquent Delivery of Ceremony- no matter what, your ceremony will be flawlessly executed by a skillful public speaker who can even rise above any unforeseen circumstances. Flower girl throws a fit?  DJ plays "Brick House" instead of "Cannon in D"? Crying groom can't get through his vows? Grandma snoring? No problem!!! I'll work those mishaps into the ceremony and make it one of your favorite funny memories rather than an embarrassment!! 
    • Rehearsal- prior to the ceremony, officiant will assist in determining wedding party line-up, provide check-list of important (and historically most forgotten) details, offer tips on positioning & ring placement, and run processional/recessional until the hour is up or everyone is comfortable.  The photos you are purchasing will directly reflect the preparation benefits you'll receive at rehearsal. Photos are lifetime memories! *rehearsal is included in most ceremonies unless specified otherwise during the initial consultation. 
    • Utmost Professionalism & Communication- this includes everything from prompt and courteous response to communication leading up to your wedding, keeping you informed, punctual arrival on your wedding day, to appropriate attire as agreed upon. You will unlimited email and phone support for any questions, and up to two in person visits if necessary.
    • My Guarantee- you have my promise that any additional appointments on your special day will be scheduled with ample time to provide the full dedication your ceremony deserves. I will never double book myself, and unnecessarily send someone as a replacement. In the event I have a true emergency, I will make every effort to find an officiant to take my place. I do work closely with 10 other local officiants of the same professional caliber, who support one another in the rare occasion that one of us has an emergency. (This is all reflected in my contract)
    • Filing of Marriage License- your marriage license will be filled by mail, the week following your ceremony to the county clerk's office. The county clerk's office will then mail it to the address you provided them within 30 days.
