How does it work?
The process begins with a meeting either in person, by phone or on Skype for a preliminary conversation. If you decide to go forward, we sign a simple Agreement Statement that spells out our shared responsibilities.

We discuss what you would like to include in the ceremony and negotiate a mutually agreeable fee. I listen carefully to ascertain what needs to be included, sometimes suggesting certain elements to create a text that supports your preferences.

You preapprove everything in the ceremony and at the conclusion of the ceremony, I present you with a special copy of the script.
