In 2016 the fee for a formal wedding will be $400. Depending upon the circumstances, the fee could be less or occasionally more, if the wedding is out of town or my presence is requested at the rehearsal. For example, weddings in Sedona or Tucson will be an additional $125 for travel expenses.

Rehearsals are considered a separate fee from the actual ceremony. Generally, in the high majority of cases the coordinator from the venue leads the rehearsal. Although it you feel more comfortable with my presence, I would be happy to be a part of your rehearsal, which is an additional $75.

My goal is to make myself available as often as possible, especially for the couple who are hoping to have a Catholic priestly presence at an outdoor wedding. Presently, the Catholic Church in the Phoenix diocese does not provide this service.

I am always willing to talk and or meet with you without any obligation or cost on your part.

Looking forward to hearing from you and helping you plan something very special.
