Services

I specialize in performing civil (non-religious or non-denominational) ceremonies that can be either elegantly simple or custom-designed to reflect the personalities, values and desires of the two spouses-to-be.

If you have vows or readings that you wish to use, that’s great!  If you don’t, I would be happy to provide an array of samples and suggestions and together we can select what you and your spouse like best. I have a standard set of vows that I use when couples don’t have any particular requests, and everyone has been very happy with them.

I am also available to lead many other types of events such as parties, banquets, conferences, and other celebrations.  Please scroll down the page for more information.

This package is appropriate for larger wedding parties where you wish to customize the readings and features to create the wedding you’ve always wanted. My presence at your rehearsal is included.  Here’s what you get:

  • Optional components such as guest readings, unity candle, sand ceremony, etc.  (Please note that I do not supply the materials for these ceremonies.)
  • As many calls or emails as you need
  • Rehearsal – I walk the wedding party through all the steps of the ceremony and answer all questions about what to expect.
  • The wedding ceremony (of course!)

A $200 deposit is required to secure the date, time, and place and the commitment to use my services.  You may pay the deposit online here, or you may mail a check.

Short, Sweet & Simple Wedding – $150

Tami and Traci-soft edgeThis package (sometimes called an “elopement”) is designed for the couple who just wants a quick, informal ceremony to “make it official,” with just a few guests (typically twelve or less). It’s ideal for a couple who has already had a wedding or commitment ceremony that wasn’t legally binding, or a couple who is planning a larger ceremony later but wants to get legally married now. Here’s what you get:

  • A standard, basic wedding ceremony including vows and ring exchange (if desired)

This package does not include a consultation, nor is the ceremony customizable. The ceremony is brief (about 4 minutes long), and couples have been very happy with it.

Please note that you need to have two witnesses who are at least 18 years old. If needed, I can provide witnesses for $30 each with at least three days’ notice.

A $75 deposit is required to secure the date, time, and place and the commitment to use my services. You may pay the deposit online here, or you may mail a check.

If you would like to have more than 12 guests or if you would like to have the ceremony customized, please select the Standard or Deluxe package above.

Mileage

There’s no additional charge for mileage for any venue in the greater Phoenix area (Maricopa and Pinal counties).  If you would like me to travel further, I will provide a very reasonable quote for travel expenses.

Other Services

I would be happy to serve you for other types of ceremonies and occasions as well, such as:

  • Renewal of vows
  • Funerals or memorial services
  • Master of Ceremonies (MC) for a retirement party, banquet, conference, etc.

I am a seasoned public speaker and presenter, and I have previous experience with most of these types of events.  Please contact me using the form below, and we can discuss what you need to make your event a memorable success and come up with a quote.
