You may choose one ceremony or use the ceremonies as templates, taking different parts to create your own unique ceremony. Rev. Hannah and Rev.

A contract assuring you have hired a professional, legal officiant for your ceremony is provided. Your wedding officiant is available for your rehearsal, although there is an additional fee of $100. On the day of your wedding, your officiant will arrive 1/2 hour before your ceremony is scheduled to begin.
