I, Deedra Steward, agree to perform a marriage ceremony for the Couple on the __________day of ___________, 20_____at_______________(time of day) and at____________________________(facility) located at ____________________.
The Officiant warrants that she is a professional Officiant; recognized as a legally ordained minister; fully qualified to officiate at weddings in the State of Oklahoma.
The Officiant will provide the following services for the fee of $150 with an additional $30 for holidays under the terms of this agreement. An additional fee may be applied for extra mileage. All additional services as listed below are discretionary to the Couple and must be agreed to and payment is due at the rehearsal or if no rehearsal, prior to the service.
The Officiant will work with the Couple by e-mail, telephone or in person to allow them to prepare or choose to modify the samples, create a ceremony or use one of their own choosing. The Officiant reserves the right to refuse any service that she is not comfortable performing, at which time a refund may be made to the Couple.
The Officiant shall arrive at the wedding location approximately 30 minutes prior to the time of the scheduled service. The Officiant is prepared to dress in the manner that suits the style of your wedding, provided it allows her to present a dignified image in keeping with the character of the rite of matrimony.
An agreed upon date prior to the ceremony for rehearsal will be billed at $35.
In the event that the scheduled Officiant is unable to perform the Couple’s wedding ceremony due to illness, hospitalization, accident, transportation breakdown or other unforeseeable causes including weather, she will make contact with the Couple and arrange for another ordained minister licensed and qualified to perform wedding in the State of Oklahoma. In such an event that no substitute is available, all monies paid by the Couple to the Officiant will be returned and the Couple hereby agrees that the Officiant will not be held liable for any damages (including punitive) due to the non-performance of the ceremony or function.
The Officiant gives permission to the Couple to use her likeness in any photograph, videos or other recording media. Likewise the Couple gives permission to the Officiant to use her likeness in any photographs, videos or other media for marketing purposes.
The Couple understands that they must obtain a valid marriage license from the appropriate jurisdiction for which the ceremony will be performed and shall provide such valid marriage license to the Officiant to review and execute at the rehearsal or prior to the ceremony.
This agreement is valid for the wedding service for the place and date stated about. Any changes to time, place or date must be agreed to in advance by the Officiant. The Couple realizes that the Officiant performs other ceremonies for other Couples and that excessive lateness or change in time can create a serious conflict in the Officiant’s schedule. If the Couple changes the time or date of the schedules ceremony without the Officiant’s consent, the Officiant reserves the right to cancel the performance of the ceremony and shall in no way be held responsible or liable in any manner for such non-performance.
The Couple accepts responsibility for purchasing items needed to perform the ceremony (unity candles, sand, roses, brooms, etc.) unless previously stated.
This agreement and nay attachments constitute the entire agreement between the parties and may not be modified except in writing signed by both parties. No other representatives or promises have been made except those that are set out in this agreement. If any part of this agreement is adjudged to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the remaining parts shall not be affected and shall remain in full force and effect.
IN WITNESS HERE, the undersigned have executed this Wedding Ceremony Agreement as of the date stated above.
