What are your fees for a Wedding Ceremony?
My typical fee for a wedding ceremony service is $395 to $495, depending on complexity and location. That charge includes a Wedding Ceremony Workbook, consultations, drafts and delivery of the Ceremony. And a Keepsake Copy of your Ceremony. I require a deposit of $150.

Why should you be my Wedding Officiant/Celebrant?
I am a trained and experienced professional who is registered with the State of Colorado and is legally qualified to marry you. I am also a person who will skillfully create and deliver a Wedding Ceremony that reflects you and your marriage vision. Many couples that come to me have no formal ties to a religious institution or have come from different faiths and want to draw upon their faiths in traditional or symbolic ways. Others are just not interested in having a simple civil ceremony… much more is desired.

My couples are also looking for a professional who can look and speak well and be a credit to their wedding and guests. I am also very organized, punctual and easy to work with.

Are you also a Wedding Planner?
No, I am not a wedding planner or coordinator. However, I work with many qualified professionals in the field. I am nonetheless happy to assist, wherever possible, in providing guidance and answering questions about venues or other details of your wedding. (See also elopements below.)

Do you work with couples who are eloping?

Yes! Colorado is a fabulous location for destination weddings. Many couples from other states, and countries, choose Colorado locations and wish to marry without a lot of fanfare. I’d be delighted to help with the planning and Ceremony.

Do you officiate other types of Ceremonies?
I do! I would be delighted to speak with you about a meaningful vow renewal or commitment Ceremony.

How do we get a Colorado wedding license?
You can get a license from any and each of the counties in Colorado that is most convenient for you. It costs $30.00. A Colorado license can be used anywhere in the state and is good for 30 days from purchase.

Can (our, my) children be included in our Wedding Ceremony?
Yes! I have many suggestions and ideas for ways in which children can participate. We can discuss this important option at our meeting.


Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude.

Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; but rejoices in the right.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.

So faith, hope love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

~ 1 Corinthians
