About Our Fees:


The majority of work is done prior to your ceremony. A great deal of our time is dedicated to discussing your ideas, dreams, and needs for your very special day. We research, draft, and revise the perfect readings, and design ceremonies that fit your unique vision.

Fees are determined by these factors, along with travel.

Our goal is not only to meet, but exceed your expectations, regardless of your budget. Let's discuss what you need and what we can do for you.

Or we can custom tailor a ceremony to your needs and budget!


In Person Consultations and Travel

You may wish to meet with us before committing to a contract, and we are happy to oblige. You may also have special requests that need to be handled in person after booking, and we're prepared for that too.

Your initial consultation is free within our main service area of Monmouth County, and surrounding portions of Middlesex, Mercer, and Ocean counties (generally 30 minutes travel from Manalapan). Unfortunately, due to the ever rising costs of travel, we do need to charge minimal travel fees for areas outside our main service area.

Consultation fees are based on time and travel. In Monmouth and Ocean Counties, the travel fee is $15.00.

For Mercer, Middlesex, and Burlington, the travel fee is $22.00

For all other counties EXCEPT Cape May, Cumberland, Salem, Sussex and Warren, the travel fee is $29.00.

For Cape May, Cumberland, Salem, Sussex and Warren Counties, the travel fee is $36.00.

For the consultation itself, excluding the first meeting, the fee is $20.00 per hour, billed up to the nearest hour.

Full Service Rehearsals

All ceremonies include rehearsals-by-phone, as well as a quick run-through approximately 15 minutes before the ceremony. However for those who wish to have a more extensive rehearsal, we can accommodate you!

Full Service Rehearsals are available to you when performed on any day before the actual ceremony date for $100 plus travel expenses. Please be sure to ask for this service when you book to ensure availability.

We also offer the following additional services which can be added on to any package ala carte:

Altar Table - $15, add an elegant cloth $5

PA System with Microphone - $50, add Wedding CD $15 (Available for Outdoor Ceremonies!)
