Your ceremony will be well organized with Anne as your officiant. She is thoughtful with regard to the needs of you, your guests and the location of the wedding. You and all the participants in your wedding will recieve clear direction to ensure coordination of all aspects of the service. You will feel happy and confident that your wedding will be perfect with Anne guiding the process.
How Do You Proceed?
Planning the Ceremony
First, a phone call to introduce yourself and review your plans. This will enable Anne to set your fee and plan time to meet. Couples who live out of town may plan their wedding from a distance.
Second, during this meeting Anne will review all the parts of the ceremony and discuss your vision. She will guide you with examples and ideas. She will also discuss the role of each person in the wedding party and set up a timetable for the ceremony. This is a fun, relaxed process. Plan on spending 60-90 minutes with Anne.
If you have your license, please bring it to the planning meeting. Most licenses are valid for 6 months. They must be obtained in the county/city where the service is performed.
Third, Anne will send a draft of your wedding via e-mail for your review. Revisions are made according t
o your feedback. The final copy will be approved by you before the wedding. Consider having th
e written portion of your wedding completed at least 2 months prior to your wedding. Customized services are also available on short notice.
Plan on spending an average of 30 minutes rehearsing the wedding. Anne will collaborate with the other professionals, such as, wedding planners, musicians and photographers. When scheduling the day and time of your rehearsal consider rehearsing two to three days before the wedding. This will help you feel well rested on your wedding day.
Small weddings may not require a rehearsal. Arrangements can be made to walk through the details of the service an hour before the wedding begins.
* Anne prefers to have the license by the time of the rehearsal.
Anne will arrive 30 minutes prior to the wedding to attend to any last minute details and coordinate with the onsite staff. Anne enjoys meeting the guests and assuring the wedding couple has everything they need. A little reassurance goes a long way on the day of your wedding. Anne wants you to enjoy yourselves and each other. This is a time to allow others to pamper you.
