ADDITIONAL SERVICES

The sound on video recordings can so often be muffled or unintelligible. Our ministers use digital audio recorders directly attached to their ceremony books, guaranteed to clearly capture their words to you - and yours to each other. Copies of services are available for purchase.

~ Travel ~
For event locations more than 30 miles from the center of Mesa, AZ - or the assigned officiant's office - additional charges may apply. Travel costs are assessed on an individual basis and every effort is made to keep them reasonable and minimal. Applicable travel charges will be discounted if booking both ceremonial and photographic services.

~ Multi-Day Travel ~
Our officiants do offer services throughout the United States and are willing to travel nationally, provided all travel related costs - as well as the modest per-diem fees are paid in advance.

From hour long hikes in the local mountains ~ to climbing crazy lookin' cliffs ~ to multi-day backpacking trips into the Grand Canyon, we do our best to provide services whenever and wherever possible. For more information, visit our Wilderness page. Price quotes are available upon request.


~ Discounts ~
We proudly grant discounts to returning clients,
as well as to military and emergency service personnel facing deployment.
