Package Add-On Options
These are options that can be added to various packages.
Rehearsal Attendance: $200
The wedding rehearsal usually takes place at the venue on the day before the wedding. It is a time for the couple and the wedding party to practice for the big day (and socialize and get acquainted too!). It also provides a fun and casual atmosphere for you and the wedding party to connect with your Officiant and iron out any wrinkles before show time!
Your Officiant will attend and direct your wedding rehearsal, but will not attend the rehearsal dinner, which typically takes place immediately after the rehearsal. The average rehearsal time is 45 minutes if everyone is on time and focused.
During the rehearsal, the details of the ceremony will be reviewed and practiced, including the order of the processional and recessional (how everyone walks in and out), the handing off of the bride, the music cues, and where and how everyone will stand when they arrive up front. The transitions and cues for the various parts of the ceremony are also reviewed without going through the entire script word-for-word.
Some wedding coordinators play a larger role in the rehearsal than others. Regardless of whether or not you have a coordinator, your Officiant is happy to either take the lead or just a supporting role to make sure that your wedding day goes off without a hitch (except for one!). Often times, a wedding coordinator looks to the Officiant for guidance when it comes to certain details.
Custom Ceremony Upgrade: $200
If you are going with one of our Elopement or Small Wedding Packages, you can upgrade to a fully customized ceremony. We will craft a one-of-a-kind ceremony that truly reflects your unique relationship. Once you have booked your wedding with us, you will complete a thorough questionnaire to help us gain insight into who you are as a couple. We will then create a rough draft of your ceremony with various options and suggestions for you to consider. Based on your feedback, revisions will be made until you are 100% happy with the final ceremony. The result will be a beautiful and personalized wedding ceremony that you and your guests will remember and cherish for the rest of your lives!
Witnesses for Elopements: $60 each
It is a legal requirement in NC to have two adult witness present during the wedding ceremony and to sign both copies of the marriage license afterwards. If you are unable to bring 2 adult witness, we can provide them.
Travel fees will apply for venues or ceremony locations that do not have an Asheville address. This fee will be included in your quote after you submit your Contact Form.
