Wedding Minister & Officiant Fees

~ There is no fee for an in-person meeting, if you are in Tucson, to speak about your individual wedding, and to become acquainted in order for you to make a “comfortable” wedding minister/officiant choice. And of course we can visit by telephone.

~ Ceremony fee varies depending on location and number of guests.

~ A non-refundable deposit will hold your date and time. The remainder of the fee is due at or before your wedding. An additional travel fee may apply depending on the location of your wedding.

~ I will come early to your wedding with plenty of time to connect with your photographer, musician, planner and you, to make sure that we are all in coordination for the perfect flow of your ceremony. After your ceremony, we will sign your Arizona marriage license, with two witnesses, which you will have obtained from the Green Valley Justice Court or the Pima County Superior Court or other county in Arizona.

Services Included in All Fees 

~ A meeting in person, if you wish and your time allows, to finalize your wedding ceremony and go over all logistics such as music, processional and recessional. We can also do this thoroughly over the telephone if this is easier for you.


~ The e-mail and/or telephone time to create together with you your ceremony, using the offered choices, adding all personal touches and any selections from your religion, spiritual, family or cultural traditions. We will thoroughly go over the “flow” of your ceremony.


~ Any information that I may offer to help you in adding those “special touches” to your wedding.


~ I am happy to offer all information I can and go over with you the processional and recessional of your ceremony. If you do desire for me to facilitate a rehearsal, there is an additional fee. Travel fee may apply. To insure my availability, please secure the date and time well in advance.
