Services and Fees

Ordained Minister Licensed to Officiate Weddings in West Virginia and Ohio

I offer a variety of pre-written ceremonies. Simply choose the chapel and ceremony that works best for your occasion. Hours are currently by appointment only. Because I officiate weddings at other locations, contact me in advance to schedule your ceremony.

My tiny chapel is small and elegantly decorated and can accommodate up to four guests. For weddings that include 5 – 29 guests, the bigger, micro-wedding chapel is available by appointment. Same-day marriage ceremonies are often an option.

If paying with cash, please bring the correct amount for your service. If you want to pay by debit or credit card, please indicate your request when you schedule your ceremony. I will send an invoice ahead of your appointment. Contact me at 740-525-6974 for details.
