Stipends for Oregon and Washington
Reception Master of Ceremonies /Emcee Services
NO stipend/fee is EVER charged for initial meeting; nor for follow-up consultations after booking, by phone, email, texts.
Meetings are at my Cathlamet WA home (32 miles NE of Astoria, OR or 20 miles from W of Longview, WA) or in Portland/Vancouver metro Monday, Thursdays or weekends are possible.
I will ALWAYS keep your cost for my services and recommend other professional services to keep your costs as low as possible.
All stipends are based on 1 hour of ceremony and service at your venue and on your wedding day, without rehearsal, and no additional time or mileage is charged**.
Please note: 95% of the time a rehearsal with minister/officiate is not required. I want you to avoid this usually unnecessary expense of 50% additional to above costs.
Ask how and WHY to avoid this usually needless expense.
If you REQUIRE rehearsal time and if I am available, add 50 % more to stipends above if rehearsal is on Sunday thru Thursday, and 75% if Friday or Saturday. NOT recommended unless your ceremony is unusually highly orchestrated. Limited to 60 miles from Cathlamet, WA. BUT THIS ADDED COST
IS BETTER spent on your HONEYMOON and not on a rehearsal !
Call me and I will explain WHY a minister/officiant need not be at your rehearsal 99% of the time.
* ELOPEMENT CEREMONY is a brief wedding ceremony in Cathlamet, WA without rehearsal , limited to the couple, 2 witnesses and close family in attendance. Wedding on a ferry no more than 2 cars (8 people), we can board on the Oregon side or Washington side.
Your choice. Ferry fare to one side is MY TREAT.
COOL IDEA: However, you can privately rent the entire ferry for $100 for 1 crossing of the Columbia River with either a Washington or Oregon wedding license, or Washington to Washington, or Oregon to Oregon (all in about 20 minutes). At least 2 witness, but you can have up to 50 guests as well. Ask me!
If Emcee services (MC) are in addition to Officiate services, $95.00 per hour contiguous after ceremony,
or an portion thereof, in addition to officiate stipend agreement.
If ONLY Emcee services are required (within 90 miles of Longview): $295.00 for 2 HOURS minimum, and $95.00
per hour, or any portion thereof, after minimum 2 hours of service. Greater than 90 miles, mileage negotiated.**
