Package Add-On Options
These are options that can be added to various packages.
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.

Travel Beyond Buncombe County
We are happy to travel up to 2 hours from Asheville. The map provides the cost of traveling based on the county in which the venue is located. The price is per round-trip, if the Officiant will be attending the rehearsal, then the travel cost will be doubled. Additional travel fees also apply if we are providing a photographer. If your venue is located outside of the map of Western North Caroling below, but is still within a 2-hour drive, then contact us for a custom quote.
Priority Booking for Short Notice Weddings
We understand that not everyone has the luxury of planning their wedding or elopement many months in advance, and we are happy to accommodate short notice weddings. We will move your wedding to the top of our priority list for quicker servicing, and you will be saying “I Do!” in no time! This applies to the Classic and Elopement packages when booked 2 weeks in advance or less.
