You will enjoy the comfort and assurance of knowing you are contracting with a first-class minister who comes with professional experience, impeccable integrity, commendable references, a gentle and enthusiastic spirit and a subtle, but delightful sense of humor.

This popular wedding plan includes:

  • One-hour consultation (or more, if needed). A list of 75 wedding tips is included. More here.
  • Unlimited phone and e-mail accessibility (toll-free, if needed)
  • Your own ceremony or one of Larry's ceremonies customized to your satisfaction. You always have the last word in creating your very special ceremony. Sneak a peek at the wedding ceremony template here! You are encouraged to plan a Friday rehearsal no later than 1:00 p.m. See below. It's the most "romantic" ceremony you will find anywhere!
  • Attend the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, if invited.
  • Perform the wedding ceremony and attend the reception dinner.
  • Offering a very special "Wedding Blessing" at the reception
  • File the marriage license with appropriate authority (usually the County Clerk)

The following is given to you after your wedding. (Please be patient, Larry James is one of the busiest Officiants in the Greater Phoenix area).

  • A very special copy of the wedding ceremony on "parchment paper" to file with your wedding keepsakes giving it an heirloom quality.
  • A "Relationship Coaching Certificate" with no expiration date. Value - $120.00. Pre-marital coaching is also available upon request.

When you call to arrange a free consultation, the appointment will conditionally hold your time and date pending receipt of a non-refundable deposit to secure the time and date. "Hold" dates will only be held for 5 days after an initial consultation.

After your consultation with Larry James and after receiving a non-refundable deposit to secure the time and date, he will send you a ceremony template in a Word document by e-mail. You can make any changes or corrections you desire, then return it to him by e-mail.

Larry James puts a lot of thought and energy into each ceremony he performs and works to insure that the spoken words of your ceremony is a personal and distinctive statement that reflects the love and commitment you have for each other and that it is effectively communicated to your family and friends present to witness your special day.

Each couple receives a written agreement that specifies the date, time and place, names in the wedding party, any additional ceremonies (e.g, Unity Candle, Rose Ceremony, etc.) and any other special conditions.

Add travel expenses, including a one-night hotel stay, if the rehearsal and wedding will be outside the Greater Phoenix area. Larry James will travel anywhere your budget permits in the 50 United States. Call for details.

Expanded plans include pre-marital and post-marital counseling.

Read tip #72 from "Larry's Wedding Tips" about fees!

Fees for having minister, professional speaker, author and relationship coach, Larry James, perform your customized wedding ceremony begin at $400.00 (Greater Phoenix area only). A 50% non-refundable down payment (deposit) per couple reserves your wedding day, rehearsal day (if any) and times. The balance of the fee is due two weeks before the rehearsal, if any, or wedding.

NOTE: If a situation arises where two couples are interested in the same wedding date, the couple who first offers a deposit to secure the date will get the date.

NOTE: A fee quote for your wedding is available by telephone only (not e-mail). Because of the many details involved in planning, preparing and customizing my romantic wedding ceremony, a fee quote is available ONLY after a FREE, no pressure, no obligation telephone consultation and after I have spoken with you about the numerous details of your wedding that may affect the fee. Consultation regarding customizing my very special ceremony, attending the rehearsal (if any), and performing the wedding ceremony are included in the fee. Place a personal call to Larry James at 480-205-3694. Thank you for your understanding.

Larry's attendance at a Friday rehearsal for a Saturday wedding is subject to whether he has a Friday wedding scheduled. You are encouraged to plan a Friday rehearsal no later than 1:00 p.m. Most rehearsals should not take longer than 30 minutes if everyone arrives on time. Click here for more rehearsal info.

Other Arizona Cities: For fees for weddings in Flagstaff, Tucson, Prescott, Payson, Wickenberg, Sedona and other Arizona cities, (also Rocky Point, Mexico) click here. Mileage and/or travel (drive) time are determined by using MapQuest.com or AAA.

NOTE: The giving of a gratuity is optional. This is a discretionary amount of money in addition to the honorarium fee given to the officiant. The amount you give depends on your relationship with the officiant and the amount of personal involvement or time they have spent prior to the ceremony and during the rehearsal. It is suggested that the groom put this fee in a sealed envelope and give it to his best man or wedding consultant, who will give it to the officiant immediately after the ceremony.

Rocky Point Weddings

The fee for a Rocky Point, Mexico wedding) is $1,200.00 which includes travel fee. There are no further costs. Rocky Point weddings requires a non-refundable down payment (deposit) of $600 to reserve the date. The balance of $600 is due two weeks prior to the rehearsal, if any, or wedding.

Out-of-State Weddings

For an out-of-state wedding, the fee begins at $1200.00 + airfare, ground transportation (economy car rental) and hotel (or other room) accommodations. A deposit of 50% is required to secure the wedding date and is non-refundable. The balance is due two weeks before rehearsal, if any, or wedding.

Hotel accommodations are required for the night before the rehearsal, if any, and/or for the night before and the day of the wedding. For example, for a Saturday wedding: if you have a rehearsal on Friday, I would fly in the night before and fly out the day after the wedding (Sunday), requiring a 3 night stay.

Car rental (economy car - if necessary) will be billed separately and is payable the day of the rehearsal or wedding, whichever comes first.

Airfare must be paid with the deposit or within 10 days of booking the airline. Airfare will be booked at the lowest possible rate. If you have air travel miles available, you may book the airline of your choice. Call 480-205-3694 to discuss air travel.

NOTE:  Larry's "romantic" ceremony has gained in popularity and gets rave reviews! Word gets around fast when something is good. If you have the slightest interest in having Larry James perform your ceremony, you are encouraged to call to check availability. He usually books 5 to 6 months in advance, with a few open dates in between. Weekday weddings are generally easier to schedule on shorter notice.

Call 480-205-3694 to reserve a date for your wedding, for availability and more information. There is no charge for a "get aquainted" call.
