We are paying $400.. I thought that was insane, but we really liked him and his ideas. This is for a wedding in Los Angeles, California.

Free, we had a friend register online and she did it for free. We did give her and her partner a nice gift card for dinner to thank her, she did an amzing job.

We had a Justice of the Peace do ours. The cost was $100, which she donated to charity. Love that!

Ours is $350, which includes rehearsal and a personalized ceremony. She is local so there’s no charge for travel which is a plus. Some others we talked to charge $50-$100 just for travel (for both the ceremony and rehearsal).

$250 for custom ceremony with rehersal and his wife as a day of coordinator, as well as mic and music if needed. Anything above X amount of pieces of the ceremony, is $25 extra.

$525 unlimited calls/emails.  They would have written our ceremony but I did it myself (and did NOT get a discount, LOL)  They’re running the rehearsal, and this cost includes travel as well.

Mine was $500. I know it was more expensive, but we liked her the best out of three officiants we met. We had one in-person meeting and then one phone meeting closer to the wedding. She did not come to the rehearsal, but she was familiar with the venue and the coordinator. I got married north Los Angeles.
