Officiant Fees and Services
We are honored for your consideration of allowing us to provide the officiant to preside over your wedding ceremony.
Our philosophy is simple: every couple should be allowed as much (or as little) involvement in their wedding ceremony as they desire.
Every wedding ceremony script is customized, every couple meets with their actual officiant and each officiant is professional in appearance and demeanor. This ensures that you will get the type of ceremony and officiant you want....it really doesn't get any easier than that.
Standard officiant services fee is $175, with an additional $45 if a rehearsal is desired. There is a small upcharge for peak season events. Scroll down for full details on what is included in our service.
How to get your officiant services secured:
We require a $50 retainer (non-refundable) to secure your date. The balance of your fee is then due 60 days prior to your wedding date. Please note that your ceremony script will not be emailed until final payment has been made.
When you are ready to secure services, contact us (316-524-3131 or [email protected] )
We will email (or mail) you a contract and a workbook to help begin the process for selecting your ceremony. You return the contract and deposit to us. Once we've received the deposit, you contact us at your convenience to schedule your in-person vows consultation.
Your vows consultation can also take place over the phone if distance or schedules do not allow. The in person vows consultation is a courtesy we offer, you are not required to use this portion of your service. If you do not come in for the vows consultation, we will select a ceremony for you.

About our Wedding Officiants
We feature several wedding officiants, all experienced and well-trained. Our goal is to provide quality, customized wedding ceremony services to match the needs of every wedding.
We do not require pre-marital counseling. You get full control over what is or isn't said at your ceremony. This gives you complete piece of mind about the most important part of your wedding day...the marriage ceremony!
We will present each couple sample ceremonies based on their style preferences. They will get the chance to either select a ceremony they prefer or pick and choose the pieces of each they like so we can create a custom ceremony for them. We can also write a ceremony entirely from scratch for them if they'd prefer. We can present ideas for special touches like including children, honoring loved ones, unity candles and much more.
Before the ceremony, we will present a 'script' for their approval of the entire wedding ceremony. Script is presented to the couple after their final payment has been made.The couple can then request modest changes/additions or revisions.
Day of the ceremony, each couple can be sure that the officiant will arrive on time, professionally attired and conduct the ceremony in a clear, pleasant voice. We consider this commitment to be of the highest priority. There are backups and procedures in place to ensure that even in the event of the rarest personal emergency, you will not have to worry that an officiant will be unable to attend your ceremony.
Our officiants are willing and capable of performing ceremonies of all types from very traditional or religious to non-denominational to civil. We honor all religions.* Some have experience with hand-fastings or commitment ceremonies. All are also capable of vow-renewals. You will find us to be a perfect touch for your wedding ceremony.
Please Note....None of our officiants are priests with the Catholic Church and therefore we can not provide Nuptial Mass.
*We reserve the right to not enact the rites of any religion that would cause harm to others or animals. We respect the fact that those rituals may be inherent to specific religions and do not imply that any of those rites or religions are invalid, but, simply state that our officiants are not adequately suited for these atypical circumstances.
For those couples that simply need assistance in writing or creating their vows, but, do not need someone to perform(officiate) their ceremony we offer a vows consultation service.
We can meet with you in person or work together via phone or email. We'll review your particular needs and situation then provide either selections for your approval or a draft script. We can also assist you in creating special ceremony elements to honor loved ones passed, symbolize significant people, or to include children in your order of service.
$50 per hour.
