Elope in Michigan - Saugatuck Wedding Officiant & Wedding Planners


Here are some of the most commonly asked questions I get asked…

What is the difference between a Love Story Ceremony and a Simple Ceremony?
One is written for and about you; you’ll see every word and get to edit it exactly the way you want it. I take the time to get to know you as individuals and as a couple; your ceremony will focus on the stories that define your relationship and the things that are the most important to you. The other is a nice ceremony that someone will show up and perform for you.

Wedding Collections

What is a Wedding Collection?
Our Wedding Collections are exclusive groupings of wedding services, from different vendors, bundled together. It’s a way for our clients to save money and the hassle of arranging each service separately. It’s one stop shopping for small weddings and elopements.

Wedding Officiants

Are you available for my date?
Only one way to find out – call me, email me, or fill out one of my contact forms, and I’ll check my calendar.

Can we write our own vows or choose our own readings?
Of course you can! We’ll work together to incorporate the things that are significant and meaningful to the two of you.

We’re not affiliated with a church/we don’t want religion in the ceremony.
Well, okay this on isn’t really a question, but I hear this a lot. Here’s the deal, I’m not a churchy person, I carry the title to make your gran/parents feel better. I don’t interject my beliefs into your ceremony, I honor yours; my only goal is to create a ceremony that is a true reflection of you and your beliefs. But if you want more than a mention of your deity, or a quick prayer, I can refer you to some trusted colleagues.

Do you require premarital counseling?
No. You can seek out counseling if you want; if you’re thinking about it, you probably should.

Can we include our children ceremony?
Absolutely! I think it’s wonderful to include your children in your ceremony; if they are an important part of your life, your ceremony should be no different and I’ll give you lots of age appropriate suggestions on how to include each of your children in the ceremony.

Do your services include a Wedding Rehearsal?
The short answer is No. I will recommend attending your rehearsal if I think it’s necessary but my schedule often prevents me from being available so I provide couples with a Rehearsal Guide that will prompt you with all the right questions to help you choreograph the recessional and ceremony exactly the way you want it. 

Besides, venues often have coordinators on staff, and more couples are choosing to hire their own wedding planner or Day of Coordinator, all of which should be capable of running a ceremony rehearsal without me being there. But, if not you can always pay me extra to run it for you.


Will you travel to my location?
Yes, we’re happy to travel; we’re based conveniently in Saugatuck MI, just minutes from the interstate we also have three international airports within driving distance, so your destination is ours.

What are your travel fees?
Average travel fees for range between $50 – $100/per hour.

What if I don’t have a location?
If you’re eloping or planning an intimate beach ceremony, we now offer a range of wedding collections that include the ceremony, location, photography, flowers and more.  For couples planning larger celebrations I offer Venue Tours to help you find the right location for your celebration.

What if I have other questions?
You can use any of the contact forms found throughout the site; call or email me at your convenience. You can also read what other couples had to say about my services in their reviews; connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, follow me on Pinterest and read my blog for lost of local info and tips, we can even schedule a time to Skype!
