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 = $200-$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 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.
I usually don't travel to these locations during the winter months since the weather is unpredictable.
I would never want to be unreliable because of a snowstorm. I-70 is the only way to get to these places and you never know what the road conditions will be. If you have your heart set on one of these destinations though, give me call.
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.
