Fees: My passion is working with couples to create a ceremony that is meaningful to them and that reflects their commitment to each other. Because each ceremony is different, I will consult with you and provide you a quote for your personalized ceremony. Most ceremonies will fall in a cost range of $300 to $500.
Elopement: If you would like to have a sweet and simple marriage ceremony, I do provide an "elopement" service for the couple and up to 4 guests at my law office in Grinnell, IA. This service is available by appointment 7 days a week, 8am-6pm, for $100.
Location: I am located in Grinnell, Poweshiek County, Iowa. My services include travel to your wedding site in most counties in Central Iowa including: Poweshiek, Mahaska, Marshall, Jasper, Keokuk, Tama, Marion, Washington, Black Hawk, Benton, Iowa, Linn, Johnson, and Polk. I can often accommodate additional locations as well.

Services: As your wedding officiant or civil celebrant, I will help you build and personalize a ceremony with vows and expressions of unity that have special meaning to you. You can choose vows from my personal collection of prepared vows, bring in vows you've found on your own, or write your own vows. Many couples choose do to a combination of using prepared vows and personalizing them with their own touches.
Ceremonies may include expressions of unity such as lighting unity candles, sand ceremonies, prayers, blessings, the reading of poems, jumping the broom, or any other symbol of love that has meaning to you as a couple. We can also include children or other special family members in your ceremony if you would like.
Vow Renewal Ceremony: I also offer officiant services for special anniversary and vow renewal ceremonies. We will work together to create a ceremony that honors the life you have built together and expresses how much your relationship means to you.
