We accept all major credit cards, Paypal and checks. Last minute weddings and short notice are always welcome!
How long have you been performing weddings?
We have been in business for over 10 years and have performed over 1,000 weddings for couples all over Texas
Can we personalize our ceremony?
Yes – in fact, we insist on it! Your officiant will ask you questions and get to know you so they can draft a ceremony that is reflective of your personalities, beliefs, and relationship. After the draft is complete, your officiant will email you a copy for you to edit if you wish to do so. We want your ceremony to be just right, and are happy to work with you on the draft until it’s perfect.
My fiance and I come from two different religious backgrounds. Are you able to help us?
Interfaith wedding ceremonies are one of the things we do best, and we can create a customized ceremony for you that blends your religious traditions while remaining true to both.
We would like to have a religious wedding ceremony, are you able to do that?
Yes, all of our wedding officiants are ordained, non-denominational ministers and perform both religious and secular ceremonies.
How do we obtain a marriage license?
Your marriage license can be obtained from any County Clerk’s Office in Texas and is accepted in any Texas county as valid. You can apply for your license online (recommended) and then head to the County Clerk’s Office to obtain it. You will be asked for picture identification and the process just takes a few minutes.
How much do you charge?
Additional information on pricing and our services is available on our prices page. To get an exact quote for your wedding, simply call us (972) 333-8705 or send us a message and we will get back to you promptly.
Do you require pre-marital counseling?
No, it’s is not required in the State of Texas however, there is a Texas sponsored program called “Twogether For Texas” that offers a substantial marriage license fee reduction upon completion. We encourage you to visit their website to see if it’s right for you.
Does it matter that either of us has been married before, divorced, or have children?
No. Many of the couples have been previously married. If there are children involved, with your permission we’ll often include them in the ceremony. They can be recognized and vows can be taken to include their importance in your lives.
What do you wear when officiating weddings?
It’s customary to wear business attire when we officiate but we tailor our dress to your wedding theme or personal preference. For larger, more formal ceremonies we’ll typically be asked to wear a pulpit robe if you prefer. Of course Hawaiian shirts are equally welcomed.
Do you charge separate travel fees?
No, all travel is included in our package price. However, if you have selected a venue that does not offer free parking you are responsible for either validating or paying for your officiant’s parking. For destination weddings and wedding outside our service area, overnight accommodations may also be required.
What if I have to change my start time or wedding date?
While we try to be as flexible as possible in accommodating changes, we cannot guarantee our availability for a date or time change. Please let us know at least 60 days before your scheduled wedding date so we can try to find a solution for you. More information on cancelling or changing your wedding date can be found on our prices page.
Will you come to our wedding rehearsal?
Yes, for an additional fee, provided one of our officiants is available. We contract ceremony rehearsals separately from weddings because most couples don’t want (or need) our officiant at the rehearsal. At a wedding rehearsal you are simply practicing walking in and walking out, but not the ceremony itself. We offer all of our couples a free guide to coordinating your own wedding rehearsal, which outlines a few simple steps that everyone can understand.
Do you perform vow renewals?
Yes! We would be honored to perform your vow renewal!
Do you allow pictures during the ceremony?
Yes, of course! We have heard that some ministers can be touchy about when and how pictures are taken during the ceremony, but all of our wedding officiants are happy to work with your other vendors. Your photographer and videographer can shoot whenever and however they would like. We can also refer you to a good photographer if you need one.
Do you give military discounts?
Yes! Please call us at (972) 333-8705 or message us for details.
My friend wants to marry us. Is that legal?
It depends on where you are getting married, some states and counties are more strict about their marriage laws than others. Obviously we would encourage you to hire a professional wedding officiant, we perform several weddings every year for couples who had a friend realize they weren’t up to the task and “chicken out” a week before their wedding.
Do you perform short notice weddings?
Yes! We welcome all short notice weddings! Please call us at (972) 333-8705 or message us for details.
We’re already legally married (but no one knows). Can you still perform a ceremony?
Yes, we do this for a lot of couples each year, especially military couples. It is illegal to perform a “fake wedding ceremony”, so we simply need to see a copy of your marriage license before you book us. No one will know the difference, unless you choose to tell them!
We want to get married but don’t want to do a big wedding, or just go to the courthouse. What are our options?
We have several options available depending on where you would like to be married, from in-home ceremonies to outdoor elopements. Please contact us and let us know you are interested in something simple, and we can help with a few ideas!
Do you have a sound system so our weddding vows and music can be heard?
We do not have audio equipment but we can recommend a great audio person to setup and operate the audio for your marriage and even play music from your song list if you wish.
Can you recommend a good videographer/photographer for our wedding?
Yes. We know of a few top notch artists with many years of experience at a very affordable rate.
How long is the wedding ceremony?
The ceremony typically lasts between 15-20 minutes.
Can you recommend a good place for our wedding reception?
Yes, once you have reserved your date, we will be able to give you many recommendations to work with any budget.
Do you stay for the reception?
Each of our couples choose whether to invite their officiant and spouse/guest to the reception, it is certainly not required. If you would like to invite your officiant to the reception, please extend a formal invitation to them directly and they will let you know if it’s possible for them to stay.
I know we tip other vendors, but what about the officiant?
Gratuities are never expected, but are always appreciated.
All of this sounds great! How can we move forward with booking you for our wedding?
Please call us at (972) 333-8705 or fill out the form on our contact page and we will get right back to you!
