The Basic Ceremony
Some couples don't need or want very much. With a Basic Ceremony, the couple chooses from three sets of vows and declarations that I provide. The ceremony takes 12-15 minutes. My presence is not required for the rehearsal. This package includes the filing of the marriage license within 5 days of the ceremony. The ceremony will have the following order:
     Welcome and Introductory Remarks
     Declaration of Intent
     Ring Vows
     Reading (optional)
     Declaration of Marriage 
     Introduction of the Couple

The Basic-Plus Ceremony
With this option, a couple can add some elements to the list above. You may select two of the following:
     Another Reading
     Blessing of the Hands
     Candle Ceremony
     Wine Ceremony
     Handfasting Ceremony
     A Prayer for the Couple

The Custom Ceremony
For couples who desire a deeper, more personal wedding, there is the Custom Ceremony. With this package, couples can include readings, unity rituals and blended family rituals, a personalized message from me, and special interfaith customs...all of the elements that make this ceremony just right for each couple. I research and write a personalized ceremony that complements the couple's unique style and story. This package includes a no-obligation discussion meeting, endless telephone and e-mail correspondence, a questionnaire and interview process, a draft and re-write of the ceremony, rehearsal, cue sheets for musicians, photographers and wedding planners, and the filing of the marriage license within 5 days of the ceremony. This ceremony includes all of the items listed in the Basic Ceremony, plus two items from the Basic-Plus package and all of the following:
     A Personalized Message
     Blended Family Rituals
     Interfaith Customs
     Cue Sheet for Musicians, Planners and/or Coordinators

*A fee of  .50/mile will be charged for weddings beyond Morris, Sussex, Essex, Passaic, Bergen and Hudson counties in New Jersey.
