Minister / Officiant / Emcee Services

Portland weddings officiant, clergy Wedding Ceremonies Your Way - Officiate/Minister

Master of Ceremonies /Emcee  Services

If Emcee services (MC) are in addition to Officiate services, $95.00 per hour after ceremony, or an portion thereof, in addition to officiate stipend agreement.

If  ONLY Emcee services are required (within 60 miles or Portland): $285.00 for 2 HOURS minimum, and $95.00

per hour, or any portion thereof, after minimum 2 hours of service. Greater than 100 miles, mileage negotiated.

​​​NO stipend/fee is EVER charged for initial meeting; and nor for follow-up consultations after booking by phone, email, texts or if possible future meetings at my  Damascus, Oregon (7 miles east of Portland) location, phone, email or texting. 

I  keep your cost as low as possible: All stipends are based on 1hour day of service,

without rehearsal, and no mileage is charged**. 

  • Minister/officiate services at our Damascus/Boring, Oregon  location (7 miles east of Portland), indoor or on deck overlooking our koi pond in a forested setting: $ 165.00
  • Local venue at other than our Damascus/Boring location and within 20 miles: $ 275.00
  • Venue 20 - 50 miles from Damascus/Boring: $ 335.00
  • Venue 51 - 100 miles from Damascus/Boring: $ 385.00
  • Venue greater than 100 miles from Damascus/Boring: Minimum $ 455.00, mileage negotiated** if venue is further than 2 hrs one way


** Please note: 95% of the time a rehearsal with minister/officiate is not required. Ask how to avoid this usually needless expense.

If you REQUIRE rehearsal time and if I am available, add 40% more to stipends above, but this money IS BETTER spent on your HONEYMOON
