Since I am an ordained minister through American Marriage Ministeries, I cannot charge a fee. I can, however, accept a gratuity which usually depends on the intricacy of the ceremony. (A special ceremony designed just for you, a sand or unity ceremony and a handfasting).
ONLY if you are more than 100 miles from Macon I ask for a non-refundable deposit of $100.
The depost is non-refundable only if the ceremony is cancelled because I am holding that date especially for you. If the ceremony is held then the deposit is put toward the ceremony gratuity.
