Questions and Answers
Can we have some input in developing the cermeony readings? Yes , you can select readings from 40 pages of samples.
Will we get a chance to read or hear the ceremony before the wedding day? Yes. We will work closely on this. You will be able to approve the final selections.
Should we bring you the marriage license before the wedding date? Will you mail it to the state for us? Yes. I like to fill out the paperwork at the rehearsal. Then I give you a copy at the wedding and mail the others to the state.
Is flash photography allowed during the ceremony? Yes. I encourage the person to get approval from the Bride and Groom and I request when they take pictures to not be a distraction from the ceremony.
Is there a back up minister in case of emergency? Up to this point I have not had to implement a back up but I have several friends that are respected ministers and I can call on them anytime. I wouldn’t leave you without a minister.
