The Process & Fees

 Are you looking for a personalized,

custom ceremony perfect for you?


Each ceremony by Rev. Sue is one-of-a-kind,

reflecting your one-of-a-kind love!


Here is the process of how we'll work together:


1. To start, please contact me at (c) 978-325-2573 or to check my availability for your date and to set a time for our first meeting.


Meetings can be in person at The Annisquam Village Church in Gloucester, MA or via Zoom.


2. I'll send you an initial questionnaire so I can begin to get to know you, your wishes for your wedding and your future married life.


3. At our first appointment,  my intent is to begin to get to know you and discuss your many options to create a meaningful, memorable ceremony, including unity rituals, your vows and more. We'll set up a second appointment focused on giving your marriage a strong start. I'll answer any questions you have for me.


4.  After hearing from you about what you want in your wedding ceremony, I'll write a draft of it for you to review, if you'd like. (Some folks like to be surprised, too!)  What's most important is that you have a ceremony you love from beginning to end.


5. If a rehearsal is needed, I'll be there!


6. On your wedding day, I'll arrive 45 minutes - 1 hour ahead of time to meet the other wedding professionals, touch base with you, and make sure that everyone and everything is ready for your ceremony.


7. You will have the ceremony of your dreams and be given advice and support for a fantastic married life!

"Not only did Rev. Sue create a perfect ceremony, she ensured that is was the perfect ceremony *for us*.  All of our guests told us it was the most beautiful, personal ceremony they had ever attended. The reason? Rev. Sue really, actually got to know us as individuals and as a couple, and that was truly reflected in the ceremony she created for us. She was helpful every step of the way, making recommendations, but also listening to all of our hopes and concerns, and responding to them to 100%, even the minutiae that I was picking at as a nervous bride who wanted everything "just right."   Her fee was a tremendous value-- significantly lower than many officiants in the same region. If you are looking for an officiant who will really make your ceremony YOUR ceremony, and make it beautiful as well, trust Rev. Sue-- she is fabulous!"                             - Tasha Terracuso  Aug. 2013



Elopements and intimate weddings (less than 20 guests) without a rehearsal are $250-500.


Fees for custom ceremonies (more than 20 guests) range from $500-1000 and depend upon date, time, location, length of your ceremony, and need for a rehearsal.


If needed, I am able to provide a portable PA system with wireless microphone for your ceremony for an additional fee of $100.


Additional premarital counseling or ceremony planning meetings are $100/hour.
