Thank you for viewing my bio. If you are reading this your probably are in love - Congratulations ❤️❤️!
Please only inquiry if you are seriously requesting services. I am new to the FASH platform (aren't we all). I my working on building my profile and migrating reviews.
I am an Wedding Officiant that has conducted over 100 weddings ceremonies this past year. I specializd in smaller weddings (100 or less) and elopements. I'm licensed, background checked and trustworthy. 20 years background in deploying business operations support and strategy within Financial, Real Estate, Technology and Non-Profit industry.
I love people, their passion and life in general. Helping you with your special day means the world to me. I'm thankful for all the posted reviews from my previous couples on Thumbtack, Google and Facebook. Reviewing them should give you some insight of my key strengths. I am often hired for those qualities, in addition to my fair pricing and dependablity.
Thank you for considering me and it would be a privilege to work for you and with you on your special day!
Might sound cheesy but what I enjoy most about my job, is everything. I love how each couple is completely different but they all have that look of love on their faces. I love how unique and different each love story is. I love the realness. The opportunity to help couples move towards unity in a low stress and loving method, if rewarding and puts the smile on my face.
It’s been a pleasure to work along side Monte these past years as an wedding assistant. During that time I’ve seen her dependability and professionalism first hand. The way that she is able to reflect a couple and their love story too make their wedding day special is truly unique. She has motivated me to get ordained and I’m following in her footsteps. She's the only wedding officiant that I know of that automatically schedules a back up, to ensure a couples wedding does not have to be rescheduled due to her part. I would gladly recommend her for your special day!
Monte was very Professional and timely. The Price was Great also. I would Definitely hire her again!
My first step, if you would like to secure my services, I create a calender invitation confirming time, date and location. I reserve 2 hours, to allow flexiblity in you ceremony starting time.
Second, I create an invoice with agreed upon terms and conditions that will be emailed to you. Deposit of $50 is required to secure services. Once deposit is received, I email you a planning questionnaire that walks you through a typical wedding and the various elements.
On your wedding day, I arrive 30 minutes early to visit with the both of you briefly reviewing and confirming your wishes. I carry with me everything you might need.
The script I deliver during your ceremony is familiar, but not memorized. This allows for a non fake, genuine and real feel for your ceremony.
I have officiated over 100 weddings this past year. I learn each and every day, always striving to better myself, my processes and delivery. I keep up with the industry through various forums and resouces. I am in a network of officiants where we share best practices, creative solutions and newest wedding industry trends. I manage a team of 4 wedding officants in the Central Texas area which allows me the opportunity to better match couples to a best officiant, even if it doesn't happen to be me.
Standardly my price is $173 within the Central Texas area. Outside this area I charge an additional fee ($25 travel fee).
Keep in mind holidays rates are slightly higher as well as peak dates of the year.
Prediction that the most popular date in 2021 will be 4-3-21.
For 2020 it was 10-10-2020, I had 15 requests for that day.
That's a story I like to share the details one on one. Let's just say, I knew it was what I was meant to do.
I work with all kinds of couples. It's one of my favorite things.
The majority of the couples I work with find me because of my reviews or someone refers them to me.
When asked who was my favorite couple - I always say, the next one. I tend to fall in love with my couples.
Last nights couple had a large back yard wedding in the pouring rain but they took it like champs. Family was amazing. Their hospitally ensuring that each guest was served a hot plate of home cooked Mexican Food and even packed several extra to go. Very thoughtful!
The night before was a very small intimate wedding at a venue with a private chef. This couple had a very personalized ceremony with top notch decorations. Very classy and elegant.
Trust the pro and only hire a pro you can trust...
Ensure the wedding officiant services that location, available that day/time. Asked about hidden cost (cermony's that start late, run over in time, farther way, etc).
