Rates for all Savoir Claire officiating services begin at $1000.

what “i do”:

❤ The three of us will have an Introductory meeting usually in person or via phone, FaceTime or Skype.
❤ I’ll provide on-going consultations right up to ceremony time. From rehearsal, to the recessional and I can even advise on processional order, programs and what your guests toss as you depart.
❤ I’ll assist with any questions you have regarding your marriage license, certified copies and name changing
❤ I’ll direct your rehearsal – from where the groomsmen stand the before the ceremony to where they stand for group photos after, from how to walk up the aisle, to the bridal handoff at the altar, we’ll get it all down pat & have fun doing it.
❤ On the big day, I’ll officiate your marriage ceremony, using a full script that we create & customize together.
❤ I’ll complete your marriage license, obtain witness signatures & promptly submit the marriage license to the proper county office that issued it.
❤ I’ll provide you with a decorative marriage certificate suitable for framing (not a legal document).



❤ Rates to officiate a wedding (12+ guests) begin at $1000. The rate I quote for you will be inclusive – there will be no additional charges for travel, editing or anything else unless you make me stand on a cliff edge or wear a costume… see last bullet below.


❤ Rates to officiate an elopement begin at $1000. Again, the rate I quote for you will be inclusive of all charges and fees. I provide as meaningful and memorable a ceremony with 2 witnesses as I do for a wedding with 200 guests.

additional charges

❤ Additional charges will only be applied if ceremonies end up requiring hikes, climbs, cliff edges, my feet in water, shticks, skits, costumes, wearing of anything tweed, winging it, being cold or speaking in foreign accents.
