Your wedding should be a day of celebration and you shouldn’t have to worry about the cost. The following wedding fees and information will give you an idea of what to expect from your officiant and how to get a marriage license.
Most ceremonies = $175-$600
My usual fee is $375 and includes a rehearsal for weddings located in the Denver Metro area.
If you are having something like a simple backyard wedding with no rehearsal (in Metro Denver) then we will discuss that and find common ground.
I also offer a Short & Sweet Ceremony for only $100. This ceremony is mostly used for the signing of legal documents. No rehearsal, no changing the text, just a heartfelt I Do.! We will meet at the Denver County Clerk’s office (201 W. Colfax) and walk across the street to Civic Center Park. It is a lovely place for an elopement. I will even take a couple of photos for you.
Travel fees: Travel to the ceremony and/or rehearsal location beyond 20 miles from zip code 80205 incurs a travel fee of .75 per mile. We will discuss this and agree on a travel fee at time of booking.
For weddings in the mountains, Breckenridge, Keystone, etc., there is a travel fee of $150 for each trip.
Other fees include but not limited to:
Holiday fees: $50.00 (additional each for ceremony and/or rehearsal held on holidays)
Holidays: New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day.
