My fees reflect the time and care that I take in writing, designing and performing each ceremony. If you believe that your ceremony should reflect your story and should be carried out with the utmost of professionalism, you will soon recognize that what I offer you will be of the highest quality and a great value. Together, with your story and my services you will have a ceremony that will last a lifetime.

For weddings, I charge between $250 to $500 depending upon the amount of work that is required from me. If you have written the majority of your story, the amount will be closer to $250. My fees include an in person meeting with you to discuss your wedding dreams, guidance on legal requirements, research, unlimited phone and email consultations and editing of your ceremony so it really is your story and your ceremony. You will also receive a personalized copy of the script.

For funerals, I charge between $150 and $300 depending on how elaborate you want the service to be. My fee includes an in person meeting if possible to gather your loved ones story. If we cannot meet in person, we will talk over the phone. After writing the memorial story, I will contact you for editing and final approval of the ceremony. I will also work closely with the funeral director to ensure a seamless ceremony. I will also present you with a personalized copy of the service.

For pet memorials the fee is between $75 and $200 depending on whether or not you want me to preside at the funeral or you just want a tribute to be written. My fee includes a phone interview to gather the stories and details of your beloved pet, a tribute written in their honor, my presence at their burial if needed and a personalized copy of their story.

Fees for Life Cycle Ceremonies vary from $75 to $250 depending on the type of ceremony. My fee includes an in person meeting, research, ceremony writing and performance and a personalized copy of the ceremony.

For all ceremonies, you will receive a firm quote from me within 24 hours. All ceremonies require a 50% non-refundable deposit before any work is begun.
