We will work closely with you to create a customized ceremony that captures the essence of your relationship. Whether you are interested in a ceremony that is short and sweet, or a more complex ceremony representing a melting pot of faiths and cultures, we will strive to bring your vision to life.
Initial Powwow - This is our opportunity to get to know you as a couple and get an idea of what you envision for your ceremony. We want you to feel comfortable booking ORED and this is the first step in that process!
Let's Plan – Following a contract signing, we jump into the ceremony planning. During this step, you'll share a little about your ceremony hopes, what you hold closest to your heart, and general decisions such as length and structure. We can include guest speakers, special verses, unity symbols, and more into your program.
Redo + Review – We will write a full draft of your ceremony for your review. We allow unlimited drafts to ensure the ceremony is exactly what you want it to be. Some couples enjoy more of a surprise script so we are able to share the itinerary and the level of text that you prefer.
The Rehearsal– Either on the eve of the wedding, the morning of, or prior to, we will facilitate a ceremony rehearsal with you and your bridal party. This will typically last one hour and all questions will be addressed. The big day is close!
The Ceremony – We will stay in touch with you and receive an updated timeline prior to the big day. We arrive early to greet guests, make announcements, and officiate the pre-approved ceremony. On this day, your only job is to relax and cherish every moment! The Marriage License – Within sixty (60) days of your big day, you may get your marriage license. We will take care of signing and filing it with the proper office. The local courthouse will mail you a copy for your records.
