We charge a flat fee of $275 to officiate your wedding, and that price hasn’t changed since we started officiating weddings in 2006. We give a $50 discount for Monday-Thursday weddings, and charge $50 travel fee for weddings that require an hour or more drive time. There are no other charges or surprises.
A $100 deposit is required whenever you would like us t0o block off your wedding on our calendar. The balance is due the day of the wedding – you can just slip a check in the envelope with the marriage license if that’s easy for you. Because we schedule weddings so far in advance, your deposit is not refundable, unless you cancel with more than 60 days notice. However, we’re happy to change dates for you if our schedule allows.
Please note: I won’t hold a date for you until we’ve received your deposit, because it gets too confusing. The deposit can be paid with a check, using any electronic payment like Chase QuickPay or Zelle or Venmo or Square to my cell phone number, you can send money “to family & friends” from your Paypal balance, or I can send you an invoice if you’d like to pay with a credit/debit card (with a 3% service fee added).
If you’d like to mail an old-fashioned paper check, please make the check out to ‘Terri Lange’ and put your names/wedding date/location on the check:
