No-Commitment Initial Consultation, Custom Planning and Competitive Pricing

Because every couple's needs, expectations, travel requirements, and ceremonies are different, pricing can vary from what is outlined here.  This will be discussed and the final cost of services will be established during your initial consultation meeting.    

  • Base Officiating Fee- $300. Includes a face to face meeting to go over contract and initial outline of ceremony, unlimited contact via email and phone to work through ceremony details, officiating of ceremony (1 hour commitment), and certified mailing of marriage certificate.


  • Securing Your Date- There is a $100 deposit required to reserve your date. JWP Ceremonies accepts cash, check, money order or Paypal using the address


  • Rehearsal Attendance (up to 1 hour)- $75.  If you waive having me attend your rehearsal, I will gladly provide you with a free "How To Guide To Your Rehearsal."


  • Extended Time- If your ceremony is running behind due to extenuating circumstances, a 30 minute buffer will be allotted for an additional $25 fee.  Due to other possible ceremony commitments, any time beyond that can not be guaranteed. 


  • Extended Travel- No additional fees for travel within New Hanover County. For travel outside of New Hanover County an assessment of mileage and travel time will be made and disclosed as soon as possible. This covers time and travel to and from the ceremony and does not tack on to your ceremony time commitment.
