It sounds like you’re dealing with a very small synagogue. We belone go a large shul, and we called and asked his secretary if he had a wedding scheduled for our date. When she said he didn’t, we asked to reseve the date, and she set up a meeting with our rabbi for us to come and discuss our plans with him. For us, it was siimilar to making a Dr. appointment….

We asked our administrator about it. She told us all the info we needed, including price which is free for members. Then she passed the word on to him and he got back to us about picking a date.

I think it depends on your rabbi. Our rabbi is very laid back, so my husband is facebook friends with him and communicates with him a lot on facebook about things like the wedding, and now our baby naming.

Can I ask what type of synagogue you have joined (ie reform, conservative…). That may matter in terms of the conversion process being “accepted.” Also, I would setup a meeting with the Rabbi to discuss in person, it may be easier to explain all the circumstances that way and alleviate most, if not all, confusion that may arise.
