FEES and PRICING

Central Park WeddingsIt's difficult to quote a price for your wedding or commitment ceremony without knowing the full scope of your circumstances, including the amount of customizing you want for the ceremony, the simplicity or complexity of your plans, whether you want to have a rehearsal, etc.

I've found the best way to give couples an accurate and firm quote is to chat briefly about these variables. If your wishes fall somewhere in between the levels indicated below, I will quote you a price that more accurately reflects your needs and desires. My goal is to give you everything you want without having you pay for things you don't need! If you'd like, call me at (646) 753-2959 (or use this online inquiry form). In just a few minutes, I can ask the right questions and provide you with the best price for what you want.
