The Meeting

After our initial contact and check for availability, we will set up an in-person meeting to discuss your wedding ceremony and sign a contract at this time.  I can also email you a contract at your request.  If you happen to be planning long distance, we can set up a meeting via Skype to meet each other!

The Planning

Once your contract & retainer have been completed there is nothing more to do until approx. 30 days prior to your ceremony.  You will receive a questionnaire via email that will include all the information I'll need to write the first draft of your ceremony. On receiving your answers I will research prayers and passages that seem appropriate and will write a special opening based on how you met and what draws you together. I believe that the words that you hear on your wedding day help set the tone of your marriage and I am dedicated to making them the best they can be.
The draft will be emailed to you for changes and rewrites until the ceremony feels just right to you and your fiancé. We will confer by phone and email as often as feels necessary at no extra charge. You will also receive a copy of the ceremony on your wedding day.

The Rehearsal

At the rehearsal I will stage everything including the bride's entrance with her attendants and how to protect it, the entrance of the groomsmen, the seating of the mothers and/or grandmothers. I will help decide the best direction for the bridal couple's walk after the ceremony and the best photo op location for the signing of the marriage license.

The Wedding Day

On the day of the ceremony, I will cue the seating of the guests, the music for the processional, the entrance of the bride, her attendants and the groomsmen, the recessional and the bridal couple's walk.  As well as performing your ceremony I will be there to offer support and encouragement to you both.


Below you may select the wedding ceremony package that is right for you, then relax and enjoy your wedding day!


Don't leave your wedding day up to chance...
I am a true Wedding professional and will deliver your dream ceremony!

Most Popular Package *
Full Rehearsal Direction & Custom Wedding Ceremony including "Love Letters"

Unlimited guests~

$425.00

The Majestic Elegance Wedding Ceremony with Rehearsal package represents the Gold Standard of my Wedding Officiate services. To select this package is to choose my highest level of customization and is for a genuine one-of-a-kind ceremony. Tell your story with a personal custom ceremony, unlike any other wedding ceremony you have ever heard. From our meetings and a short questionnaire, I get to know you and your love story, write a completely custom wedding ceremony from beginning to end, and share your journey with your family and friends. Your wedding is all about what got you there – your romance, relationship, and life together.  Let’s celebrate that by sharing it!  The creation of your wedding ceremony will begin with an in-depth consultation with Danielle Baker. After the initial draft is prepared, you will have the opportunity to work closely with Danielle to fine-tune a ceremony and marriage vows that will communicate your unique personalities and values to all who are present.

Consultations will occur throughout the planning process to ensure that the ceremony meets with your exacting standards. Special readings and "extras," such as a unity candle, blending of the sands, special music, specially selected readings that communicate your deep love for each other, etc., are typical of this level of ceremony. "Extras" are standard features. I will meet your desires for   an exquisite, custom-crafted ceremony.  I am available to consult with wedding planners, musicians, readers, and all others on your wedding "team."  A complete rehearsal prior to the wedding day will give you the confidence that your exquisitely planned ceremony will reflect your highest standards and values.
