Where do you perform weddings?
Pretty much wherever you want your wedding. I perform weddings in courtrooms and judges' offices in the county courthouse, in an office I have three blocks from the county courthouse, at homes, parks, country clubs, recreation centers, on boats, in airplanes and hot air balloons. I perform weddings in all the counties in central Texas and have gone to Houston and San Antonio, as well as California, to perform weddings.
How much do you charge for a wedding?
My fee varies based on location, date, time of day, travel distance, and time expended. For example, for a wedding in the courthouse or the office near the courthouse, during the week between 8:30 am and 5:30 pm; the fee is $40 to $50. To perform a wedding during the week in the evening, near the courthouse; the fee is $75 to $150. For weddings on Friday evenings and weekends, my fee ranges anywhere from $150 to $500. If I am requested to conduct a rehearsal there is usually an additional fee of $100.
What does your fee encompass?
My fee includes the following services:
Do you attend rehearsals?
If requested, I attend rehearsals for an additional fee and if my schedule permits. However, it has been my observation, that if there is a wedding coordinator involved the coordinator normally conducts the rehearsal and has no need for my presence. Since I do ask for an additional fee for attending the rehearsal I try to make sure that I really am needed and will perform a useful function. In meeting and communicating with the couple we discuss the need for a rehearsal and, if needed, how it will be conducted.
