Ceremony Fees

The Santa Barbara Ceremony

Starting at $450

Santa Barbara Wedding Officiant to deliver a simple, non-denominational marriage ceremony about love & dedication at the venue of your choice (out of town travel fee may apply). Though this is a somewhat prepared ceremony, there are choices to make it your own ~ to actually personalize it to fit your style.

Phone Consultation ~ Plus access to your Wedding Officiant by phone/email. Support and assistance as needed. Coordination with other wedding professionals included.

Ceremonial Marriage Certificate ~ lovely for framing.

Filing of all your paperwork ~ locally or out of town.

For a rehearsal, please add $100. Rehearsals are always a fun occasion and very helpful to make the wedding day go smoothly. Very appreciated by most couples and wedding coordinators. If you do not have a coordinator, it's best to have your Santa Barbara Classic Wedding Officiant direct the rehearsal to ensure that all the wedding party participants, family members, and especially the bride and groom are clear on where they will stand and what order of the ceremony to expect and their part in it, as well as the order of everyone in the processional and recessional, etc., so that everyone can relax on the day of the wedding and enjoy the ceremony.

Encourage everyone involved to be on time! Evites are good for that.

The Classic Ceremony

Starting at $600

Santa Barbara Wedding Officiant to deliver a highly personalized marriage ceremony at the venue of your choice (out of town travel fee may apply). This package includes an opportunity for couples to review a draft of the ceremony before the wedding, as well as a mutual exchange of ideas of the content, i.e. readings, poems, personal vows, blessings, etc. This ceremony is very hands-on and will be unique to you!

In-Person Consultation ~ It's very nice to meet in person if possible, in addition to having access to your Wedding Officiant by phone/email along the way. Having met your Wedding Officiant before the wedding is reassuring, although phone consultations are often quite adequate--especially for out-of-town couples.
Coordination with other wedding professionals included.

Keepsake Ceremony Booklet of wedding vows, poems, blessings, etc, of your entire ceremony ~ memorialized forever in a vellum-covered booklet. A favorite of most couples married by Patrice Handley.

Ceremonial Marriage Certificate ~ lovely for framing.
