Please note:95% of the time a rehearsal with minister/officiate is not required. I want you to avoid this usually unnecessary expense.
Ask how and WHY to avoid this usually needless expense.
If you REQUIRE rehearsal time and if I am available, add 50 % more to stipends above if rehearsal is on Sunday thru Thursday, and 75% if Friday or Saturday. NOT recommended unless your ceremony is unusually highly orchestrated. Limited to 50 miles from Cathlamet. THIS ADDED COST IS BETTER spent on your HONEYMOON ! Call me and I will explain WHY a minister/officiant need not be at your rehearsal
* ELOPEMENT CEREMONY is a brief wedding ceremony in Cathlamet, WA without rehearsal , limited to the couple, 2 witnesses and close family in attendance. Small wedding on a ferry no more than 2 cars (8 people), we can board on the Oregon side or Washington side.
Your choice. Ferry fare is MY TREAT.
