Elopements and quick short-notice ceremonies will not be scheduled without an in-person meeting before the

Custom-Written Ceremony for destination weddings
to be performed by another officiant - $350

This ceremony will be written exclusively for YOU from the information I glean from phone interviews,
questionnaires, and e-mail communication. It will also reflect your personalities and love in the vows you choose
or write, the readings you choose; memorials, and rituals that can be as unique and individual as you wish them
to be!  See:

"As for the value, Emily was a little bit more pricey than other officiants, however being a firm believer of you get what you
pay for, we were not disappointed in the least. If you are looking for a perfect wedding ceremony, choose Emily!"
