Each wedding is unique, thus my fee depends upon several factors, including the season, day of the week, location and complexity. 
My fee generally ranges from $400 to $800, but there are exceptions. For last minute "elopements", contact me for availability and pricing.

My fee includes:
  • unlimited ceremony consultation
  • unlimited revisions
  • research of readings and rituals
  • assistance with your vows
  • meetings by phone and in person
  • officiating the ceremony
  • coordination with the wedding planner and other professionals
  • filing the marriage license
  • a keepsake copy

I will send you a simple Agreement and request a 50% deposit to lock in the date. Then the process will begin of getting to know you, your desires, wants and needs for the ceremony. You will receive a draft of the ceremony for review and approval.  You have full approval over the entire ceremony. I want it to be perfect for you!

"Wonderful and perfect are the two words that come to mind when working with Val!

The finished product is as if she has been a life long friend! With the ceremony so perfect all the rest just fell into place very smoothly. We are so grateful and blessed that she was part of our special day!"
