in Light of COVID-19 Restrictions
I am offering a way for couples to honor their love and share their vows to each other in marriage; even in the midst of a pandemic where Social Distancing is necessary.
Many people are having to cancel or postpone weddings, it is heartbreaking. I see people are scared. I see the need to hold on to and reaffirm the love we have right now.
There are creative options for couples to still get married (elope) within the current guidelines the CDC and our national leaders are suggesting. I will make adjustments as things develop, so these services might change in the future. But for now, let's celebrate your love.
GET MARRIED NOW
Special Elopement Service
You can get a marriage license completely online (no lines, no appointments, from the safety of your own home) through Utah County. This incredible service has been available for about a month, and now it is more valuable than ever!
I am offering my officiating as outlined in my "Informal Elopement" service description there are a few strict stipulations for this price, they are as follows:
Get your marriage license online through Utah County at the link provided, forward the email you receive once it is complete to me. That fee is $70 - paid directly to Utah County when filing for the license. NOTE: You can get your marriage license at any county in Utah, no matter where it is that you live or having the ceremony. Anywhere in Utah will do! Here is the link >> UTAH COUNTY MARRIAGE LICENSE ONLINE
No more than 8 people in attendance (couple getting married, 2 witnesses, and 1 photographer, if desired). I will expect and insist everyone in attendance keep 6-10' distancing as currently suggested (except for the couple getting married)
Bonus option, because of social distancing requirements - I will set up a Zoom link so that multiple people can attend online, AND the ceremony will be recorded! Please note when booking if you want this option included.
We will meet and have your wedding ceremony at an outdoor location in the South Ogden area. There are several parks etc. that would be perfect for an intimate ceremony.
My fee is $80 - this must be paid in full when you book your ceremony with me. Please pay this after you have completed the marriage license online. I will travel to some outdoor locations throughout Utah but will charge slightly more. Example: $100 in Davis County or $130 in Salt Lake County.
The ceremony provided is a basic, 5-minute ceremony, with minimal customization, other than basic names, etc. I do share the ceremony in advance, so you can feel comfortable with the ceremony, and I will make minor adjustments to the ceremony if needed.
With this service, I also offer a significant discount on future weddings or receptions. What does that mean? You can get married now legally, and if you plan on having a traditional wedding or reception in the future, to celebrate with ALL of your loved ones, when life is less complicated and we are on the other side of this crazy time; I will perform the ceremony again, and will use the fees you have paid for this service, to apply to the price of a full ceremony in the future.
