WOW WEDDING PACKAGE
My value-added services feature a guaranteed WOW Ceremony, all meetings and preparation of your ceremony including access to expert wedding advice. I assist with writing vows, your love story, and offer information on wedding planning and great music choices. We discuss your preferences around the 10 critical ceremony elements, choices for symbolic ceremonies and rituals, poems, and readings (if wanted). You will know exactly what will be said in your ceremony. Ideally, we meet 4-6 weeks before the wedding day to discuss all your options in your workshop that is fun and guaranteed to eliminate stress. I collaborate with your photographer to ensure you get awesome wedding pictures. I perform your wedding and submit your Licence to the government. You apply for your Marriage Certificate at any Registry 2-3 weeks after the wedding. I follow-up with the couple for any further assistance.
VOW RENEWALS/MINI CEREMONIES
My home wedding studio offers a lovely FREE backdrop with a FREE bouquet! This service is designed for a small, intimate gathering that does not require an in-person consultation in advance. Includes using a pre-scripted ceremony that matches the couples wishes plus assistance with vow writing (if needed). I officiate the ceremony and submit your Licence to the government. Vow Renewals do not require this last step.
ELOPEMENT CEREMONY, DESTINATION WEDDINGS
My home wedding studio offers a lovely FREE backdrop with a FREE bouquet! An elopement is not a ceremony. It is the legal signing of documents with two witnesses and takes around ten minutes to complete. There are no vows, no ring ceremony, and no guests except two witnesses. This service does not require an in-person consultation in advance. Includes your wedding day officiating and your Marriage Statement. The documents are then submitted to Alberta Vital Statistics.
RUSH MARRIAGE REGISTRATIONS
The couple plus the officiant meet as a mutually agreed up upon Registry within 48 hours of the marriage to expedite the marriage registration sometimes required for immigration.
A pre-booked rehearsal typically takes place between two weeks to one day before the wedding is encouraged to ensure everyone involved understands the choreography of the wedding ceremony. This eliminates the pre-ceremonies questions and the bridal party know what to expect the day of the wedding.
