I meet with couples twice before the wedding. The first meeting can be either a virtual meeting or in person. If you choose an in-person meeting, we will meet in our Condo which is in Deerfield Township which is just south of Mason. The second meeting will be a virtual meeting. During the covid months I met with all my couples virtually and it not only was very convenient for the couples but went very well.
I do not attend rehearsals. Most wedding venues have a staff member who directs the rehearsal. When a wedding venue does not offer this service, I provide written detailed instructions on how to conduct a rehearsal and review them with the couple at our second meeting. These instructions give the couple a simple and effective way to conduct a wedding rehearsal.
FEE: My fee is $375. This includes everything including transportation, meetings, multiple ceremony text samples, ceremony text preparation, rehearsal preparation, e-mail, and/or phone consultation through the whole process and, after the wedding ceremony is completed, filing the legal documents that the couple obtains from the appropriate Probate Court.
DEPOSIT AND FINAL PAYMENT: I ask for a $100 non-refundable deposit to reserve the date and time of the wedding. The Final Payment of $275 can be mailed to me before the wedding or can be given to me at the wedding ceremony. I accept cash or check.Couples are welcome to meet with me at no obligation before deciding to use my services.
I am a former Catholic Priest. I served happily in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati for 28 years. In 1993, I resigned from the priesthood and married Patty. We live in Deerfield Township near the Mason Montgomery/Fields Ertel exit off of I 71. I have three stepsons.
I am a member of CITI, Inc. A Society of Christ's Priesthood, an affiliate religious society with the International Council of Community Churches. CITI, Inc is made up of married Roman Catholic Priests who are continuing in their priestly ministry. The United States Department of Defense recognizes the International Council of Community Churches as an official Ecclesiastical Endorsing Organization. I am licensed to witness marriages.
