FAQ for Planning Your Wedding Ceremony with Rev. Lyn

What is your "style?" How you "do what you do?"

In this work that I do, I create and deliver a wedding ceremony in a personalized and custom way - no matter if your guest list is 2 or 200, sweet/simple or more elaborate and formal. For each couple with whom I am fortunate to work, I am the co-creator, consultant, resource person, encourager, advisors and Officiant of a wedding ceremony.

I lead with a happy and generous heart and a strong background in special events planning and production (from my former corporate life). I keep the focus on you, the couple, recognizing that each couple truly owns their ceremony and has the last word on what we say and do.

How far out do you book?

Sometimes two days. Sometimes two months. Often six to 12+ months out. Weekend dates/times (Fri/Sat/Sun) are most popular and the first to go. Thursday evening during the months of May - September are also very popular and a viable option for a couple. To check my availability, please call me now - 386-503-6885

What are your fees and how does all of this work?

Each couple/ceremony is different and fees vary. During any given month, my fees range from $200 - $750 for services, depending on what a couple desires for their wedding ceremony. Truth? I don't do "cookie cutter" work. Once I learn what you want for your ceremony, I can offer a fee quote for services, working within your wedding budget. I will require a 50% deposit to secure your ceremony date.

In addition to the time invested to create and craft your ceremony, my fee often includes time/effort to lead your rehearsal, travel time to/from your venue and more. It also reflects time dedicated to arriving early on your wedding day to insure an easy, elegant and prompt ceremony start.

Finally, my fee includes: ceremony revisions, emails and phone contact, and submitting your signed legal paperwork to the County.

What about writing our own vows?

Go for it - absolutely! Your ceremony is all about the two of you. You have a profound opportunity to craft personal words that reflect your love and devotion and that amplify your commitment to now and the future. If you'd like help crafting your vows, please let me know.

Can children and other family members take part in our ceremony?

Yes, it's important for me to offer opportunities during a ceremony for family and children to participate as appropriate to a couple. If you desire, you may work with me to incorporate intimate and memorable enchantments into your ceremony.

How do we secure a marriage license?

Reverend Lyn learned about our history together and incorporated that into the ceremony which made for a joyous celebration beyond imagination and will be remembered for many years to come." more
