Initial Consultation – We want you to feel totally comfortable booking our services, which is why we offer a free, no-obligation consultation with your officicant. We typically conduct these initial consultations via email, in person, or phone, but if you would prefer to meet the us in person somewhere near their home you can certainly do so. We will hold your wedding date for 10 days after you’ve decided to use Interfaith Clergy Services, so you will have plenty of time to speak with them and make a decision before making any further commitments to using our services.
Planning Meeting – Once you’ve decided to use our services you will be required to pay at least a portion of the fees to hold your wedding date, we officiant will be in touch to schedule a planning meeting. This meeting normally happens in person, but it can also be done via video or phone call as well. We will ask you questions about what you feel is important to include in your ceremony and get to know the two of you and learn about your relationship. This information will help us in writing your ceremony to make sure it reflects your beliefs and personalities.
Ceremony Editing – Following your planning meeting, we will write a full draft of your ceremony and email it to you for your review. You can revise your draft ceremony as much as you’d like until it is the exact wedding ceremony you want, and then simply email your edited draft back to us. We want it to feel perfect – if you need additional suggestions or guidance, we are happy to help at no additional charge.
The Ceremony! – We will arrive at your wedding early to help coordinate with your attendants and vendors and get ready for the processional. We are more than happy to work with other wedding professionals, and are perfectly comfortable with photographers taking pictures anywhere they would like during the ceremony. We will deliver the exact ceremony you’ve discussed, and create a wonderful experience for you and your guests.
The Marriage License – Although it’s your responsibility to get the marriage license before the wedding, we can take care of signing it afterward and filing it with the proper office. You’ll also get a copy of the license for you to keep, in case you need it for your records or on your honeymoon.
OPTIONAL SERVICES – Pre-marital counseling is available.
