Meet Our Officiants
Our officiants can help with all the options below.
This is how we conduct wedding rehearsals. We price them separately from the ceremony service as they take an extra trip, and extra time. If you book a rehearsal, this is what we'd do for you...
To elope is to run away with a lover, especially with the intention of getting married.
Courthouse - Style Wedding, or, Signature & Vows
You can come to our office, or we can come to you. The officiant will be dressed casually, they will take care of paperwork, and will have you two repeat vows to each other. At our office, we can have up to 2 witnesses.
$75 at our location; $119 at the location of your choice. For an extra $20, it is essentially a classy signature.
Cheaper, faster, and more personal then a courthouse wedding. Going to the courthouse means that, after obtaining your marriage license, you actually go to a courthouse and ask for a judge to marry you. Most will say a few words and will take care of your papers. Some might just take care of your papers because they are rushing to the next case. And that is the problem with court houses. They are primarily busy and focused on court cases. When you show up, you are not the priority. So you get to wait for a judge to become available and you end up paying more than what our fee for the Signature & Vows service is. Judges typically want $200 - $300. It's much better to work with us!
Signatures and Witnesses
A signature is just that. You come to our office with your beloved, bring the marriage license, and we sign it for you. No pomp, no special words... just paperwork. It's cheap and it gets you married. If you have witnesses, do bring 2 please, if not, we can provide them for a small fee. Depending on the officiant, the "office" could be a home office, or a public place near the officiant's location. If you'd like the officiant to come to you, that can be arranged for a small travel fee as well.
$55 at our office, or the location of our choice; $95 at your location in the Twin Cities. Travel fee applies if farther than 20 miles from Minneapolis. We need two witnesses over 18 years of age. If you do not have them, we can provide them, depending on the location. At our office the fee is $10 per witness. At the chapel and hall, it is $20 per witness. Elsewhere, in the metro Twin Cities it is $30 per witness.
It's not always practical for the officiant to travel twice to your location for the ceremony and the rehearsal. Say, maybe you are getting married at a resort... or just want to save a few bucks.
Whatever your reasons... if you must have a rehearsal, you can save some money by having your rehearsal on the same day as your ceremony
Pray, tell me more!
Your officiant arrives 1 hour before the ceremony start (as opposed to the half an hour for a regular ceremony) and conducts a rehearsal at that time. Then, one hour later, the officiant conducts the actual ceremony.
Using this service is a cost effective way to have a rehearsal.
