INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Anglican, Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Mormon, Christian - Orthodox, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker, Evangelical, Hindu, Islam, Jainism, Jewish, Muslim, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoist
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Absolutely; the location of your wedding, the environment in which you will join your life with another should reflect your tastes and aesthetic.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
The style of wedding and the desire of the couple drive our choice of attire. Normally we wear dark clothes, Cheramie a dress and Clinton a suit with tie, though we will wear a clerical collar if you wish. We also have black robes available. 
 
 If your wedding calls for it, we are also happy to dress according to a theme or location. Our goal is to serve your vision.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
We hope you will feel comfortable to collaborate with us to make your wedding ritual as unique as you are. There are many wonderful things about the wedding ceremony as it normally exists, but it can be very touching and fun to start from the ground up when creating your event.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
No. We have an enormous wealth of religious and non-religious material from which we can draw, but it serves as a resource for beginning the process of writing your ceremony, not a limit.
 
How long are your ceremonies?
Each service is different, but most full weddings last between thirty minutes and an hour, while elopement weddings can occur in less than twenty minutes. Vow renewals usually mirror weddings at between half an hour and an hour.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No, but we highly recommend that you do so if possible. Pre-wedding counseling is an opportunity to have a facilitated dialogue with your partner in which all aspects of your future life together can be discussed. It is a good way to broach subjects that may be uncomfortable in another, more common conversation. The presence of the facilitator helps to guide the talk and provide both halves of the couple a safe place from which to learn about the other and themselves as a partner.
 
 We are happy to help you find a counselor or facilitator, or to meet with you ourselves. The meetings are scheduled in hour-long blocks in the weeks and months before the wedding. If Rev. Cheramie is performing your wedding, we normally recommend that Rev. Clinton facilitate the pre-wedding dialogue, and vice versa. 
 
 One meeting: $65/hr
 Two or more meetings: $50/hr
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
We hope you will choose to do so. The day of the wedding should be fun and as calm as possible for you and your wedding party. The better prepared you are for the event, the better chance you can relax and enjoy the day. We can meet for a rehearsal a day or two before the wedding, or on the day of, a few hours before the service.
 
 Rehearsals ahead of the date: $90
 Rehearsals the day of: $50
Do you supply a sound system?
We have both a sound system and small lighting system available for a fee. There are a variety of other wedding supplies we can provide as well: 
 
 PA System: $75
 Lighting System: $175 (Control Board, 6 Instruments, Cables)
 Lighting Operator: $25/hr (Required with Lighting System) 
 Wedding Arbor: $125
 Chairs: $2.50/ea (50 Available)
 Arbor and 50 Chairs: $225
 Personalized Unity Candle Set: $50-75

Cheramie did an absolutely amazing job writing and officiating our wedding ceremony!!
She paid close attention to everything we wanted and weaved it all together in such a beautiful way. On top of being thrilled with what Cheramie wrote for us, we were also blown away by her officiating at the wedding. She took such great care in her presentation of every ceremony element.
Our wedding would not have been the same without Cheramie! I would recommend her to anyone.

First things first, the ceremony was amazing! Cheramie showed up early to make sure everything was good to go and visited with my family and bridal party before hand since the ceremony was supposed to be outside but due to rain we had to move it in. The 3 months before the wedding was calm and very clear to how good whole life was going to be for us. She would send me a draft of the ceremony and we would go back and forth perfecting it to exactly who Tim and I are inside and out. The day of was amazing the words that she spoke were meaningful, smooth, and joyous to everyone. You could hear the sincerity in her voice that she truly was happy for us. After the ceremony i had numerous people in the reception come and praise her for the good job she did and how heartfelt her words were. Don't get me wrong it wasn't a long ceremony, we had our sand ceremony, a reading that i asked her to do for us, and the little touches that she did to tell everyone about who we are and how we got to this place in time. I would definitely recommend Whole life ceremony to be your officiant.

Thank you Cheramie, you made our day one to remember!!

Reverend Cheramie was amazing. Friendly, professional, and caring, Cheramie really took the time to get to know us - and then was able to personalize our ceremony based on our personalities. She was efficient, very quick with communication, prompt, and just a lovely officiant to work with. I'm so happy she was the one to marry my husband and me!

Cheramie was the best, I am really glad I went with her because she was very responsive in her emails and allowed us to personalize our ceremony. I think she really paid attention to our venue because she dressed up a bit more as compared to my friends wedding (which was more casual), I really appreciated that I didn't have to tell her to wear this or that. She will help you mail our your wedding certificate as well!

Cheramie was a GREAT addition to our wonderful wedding! She worked with us on customizing our ceremony and got back to us in a timely manner with the different changes that we requested. She gave very good suggestions to us during the creation of the ceremony and it turned out lovely! She also ran our wedding rehearsal and was very helpful in getting everyone in their places and made sure that we all knew what was going on during each part of the ceremony.
She took charge of submitting our marriage license to the state and she didn't wait a second on submitting it! Our wedding was on April 7th and the stamp by the state said that it was filed on April 11th! We really appreciated everything she did to make our ceremony go smoothly! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone! They really are the best for the value!

Rev. Clinton Hopper was extremely professional he helped my wife and I a lot, he was very flexible. I came to him last minute and he still chose to help me out. He's a very good choice and I recommend him to everyone I know that is choosing to take that big step into the world of marriage.

Mr. Clinton Hopper was such a pleasure at my sisters wedding in June that I could not pass up having him conduct our ceremony as well!!! Mr. Clinton's overall personality and eagerness to make your ceremony fit you and your wants makes him part of your family. He takes the time to send you a questionnaire to get to know you and bases his whole script on that. You're then given a rough draft of your ceremony and can edit, change, and add on whatever you like. :0) This makes the whole ceremony that much more special and personal!

We had Rev. Cheramie officiate our wedding this past Friday, and she did an absolutely fantastic job! She met with us a couple months before the wedding to go over what we wanted for the ceremony, and she had so many great ideas and suggestions. Afterward, she emailed us a rough draft of the script so we could make adjustments, which I loved. During our reception, we had so many compliments about Rev. Cheramie's message and delivery, and how well it fit our personalities. She was very professional, friendly, and attentive. I would recommend her to anyone looking to have a personalized wedding ceremony! :)
