Holiday Wedding, Anyone?

Many couples love the idea of commemorating a special holiday by getting married. I love that idea too. That’s why I have opened my availability for holiday weddings this year.

My wedding chapel will be open for the following holidays:

  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Eve day (before 2:00 PM)
  • Christmas Day
  • New Year’s Eve
  • New Year’s Day

All ceremonies are by appointment only.

My chapel is located on the second floor of The Dils Center at 521 Market Street in downtown Parkersburg, WV. The wedding space is part of the Deb Lorentz Photography studio.

If you’d like to give the gift of a wedding to a loved one or friend, consider one of our gift certificates. The good news is that gift certificates never expire and can be used for wedding officiant services or portrait photography. You can buy them online and choose the date of delivery via email. It’s that simple.  I also offer paper certificates. Contact me for details via my online CONTACT FORM or by calling 740-525-6974.

Holiday rates apply for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Eve at my downtown chapel location:

Sign-and-Go Office Wedding (Just say, “I will” or “I do”) – $50 + 7% Tax

Elopement Ceremony in the Chapel – (Couple + up to 2 guests) – $125  + 7% Tax

Simple Ceremony in the Chapel – (Couple + 3-13 guests) – $250  + 7% Tax

Vow Reaffirmation in the Chapel – (up to 13 guests) – $100 + 7% Tax

To reserve your spot, a non-refundable retainer for the fee is required. If you must cancel your date, you may reschedule your wedding or apply the balance to one of my portrait packages.

I have limited on-location appointments available on holidays in WV and OH. You’ll want to reserve your spot in advance if you’re having a ceremony at your home or other location.

Feel free to schedule an  appointment to view the chapel. All holiday weddings include pre-written vows, but I also offer customized vows for an additional cost.  Portrait Package add-ons are also available.
