DESTINATION WEDDINGS 
I am willing to travel anywhere you would like to hold your ceremony and distance is not an issue. The fee will be based on the Ceremony Package you choose, and time spent in making your day absolutely perfect! I have a lot of resources available to me that would help enhance your ceremony and am prepared to use them to your advantage in making your ceremony the amazing work or art that you would like it to be. Mileage, Lodging and Air Travel, if required, will be added to all packages. 

OPTIONAL ITEMS: 
.
Interpretive Services Available Upon Request
.
Rehearsals - $0 ~ $100
Many venues have dedicated Wedding Coordinators who run Rehearsals for their couples; however, if yours does not, I would be more than happy to orchestrate one for you. I am always on site an hour prior to the Ceremony and can do a complimentary walk through at that time. Or, if you prefer to hold your Rehearsal the evening prior to your ceremony I can do your Rehearsal for an additional fee of $100. I can also send you a detailed Rehearsal Guide if that would be beneficial. Please note that lodging costs will be added to all packages requiring overnight stays due to a Rehearsal.   
,,

Pre-Ceremony/ Wedding Music - $100 - [Music Before and During your Ceremony]

This includes wedding music up to one (1) hour before your ceremony, the Bridal March or your choice of Processional and Recessional and any other music you might want played during your ceremony.

[Any special music must be supplied to officiant prior to the start of the ceremony]   
.
Ceremonial Add-Ons - $50 each
If a Ceremonial Add-On is not included as a part of the Ceremony Package you choose, you may add one or more at a cost of $50 each.  Please note that this charge is for writing the information pertaining to the add-on into your ceremony and does not include any of the supplies required to perform it. I do not furnish supplies for add-ons and they must be provided by the couple. Most supplies; candles, sand, vases, doves, boxes, etc. may be purchased from a local craft store or online distributor. 
.
Photography by Abi Elle Imagery - Prices range from $500 (Elegance Collection) to $1,250 (Exqusite Collection)
See our Photography page at http://www.sweetsongministries.com/id172.html for complete details and samples of photos graciously shared by many of our satisfied couples.

If you have not yet booked a Photographer to document your Wedding, I invite you to consider Abi Elle Imagery. Having photos that truly capture the essence of your love story is important and that is always our goal at Sweet Song Ministries. Abigail Layman is the light behind the camera and the heart behind Abi Elle Imagery. If interested, please contact Abby directly at abilayman12@gmail.com 

  
Meal Blessing - Complimentary
Many couples have a family member perform this function; however, if you would like me to stay and give a blessing before dinner, I would be absolutely honored!!!  I consider it a blessing to be a part of your special day and to be able to return thanks would be my sincere privilege.
.
Writing Service - Fee will be based on the Package chosen from the above offerings, minus travel expenses 
I often get calls from couples who have asked a friend or family member to officiate their wedding, but many times the person chosen does not feel comfortable writing the ceremony. If this is your case, and you would like your ceremony to be personally written by an experienced professional, I would love to work with you. I will custom-write your personalized ceremony to your specifications, send you a draft for editing and I won't be happy until it fits your desires and expectations perfectly. Once you and your fiance approve your dream ceremony, I will finalize it and deliver it to you in a beautiful keepsake binder, along with a copy in easy readable format for your Officiant to use on the day of your wedding. Don't settle for less than your heart's desire. If I can help you, please don't hesitate to ask. Helping couples dreams come true is what I do and I would love to work with you. You may contact me at (304) 472-0296 or by email at faithaglow@aol.com.   
.

NOTE:  I often officiate more than one ceremony per day and it is imperative that weddings begin promptly at the time they are scheduled.  When a ceremony starts late it not only cuts into the next couple's time, it makes traveling stressful as I drive to the next destination. That being said, there will be a $50 per 15-minute late fee for weddings that do not start on time. This fee is geared to protect my couples from being inconsiderate of one another and to allow me to do the best job possible in providing each of my couples the great service they expect and deserve. If more than 15 minutes late I reserve the right to cut out part of the ceremony to compensate for the time difference.  I do everything within my power to make your ceremony perfect and I want your wedding day to be a beautiful, memorable experience. Starting the wedding on schedule helps that to happen. Thank you for your consideration and I appreciate your understanding. 
. 
The Couple gives permission and shall allow The Officiant to post a photograph(s) of them with The Officiant (or any other photos taken by the Officiant or her Representative during the wedding ceremony) on The Officiant’s website or other social media for viewing by the internet community.  The Couple acknowledges that this is for promotional purposes only and they do not expect to receive any compensation of any kind.  There shall be no expiration for this permission. 


 
** I travel to various states and locations to perform marriage ceremonies so it is not feasible to set one standard rate that includes travel. Therefore, mileage, as well as air and lodging (if required), will be added to the above stated prices. Total cost will be discussed individually with each couple based upon your State and County requirements and your wedding destination, " 
.
TRAVEL COST:
.
Mileage and time spent traveling to and from your venue location will be added to all packages. 
Lodging costs will also be added if destination is beyond two hours driving distance from home office in Buckhannon, West Virginia.
 
** Costs of air travel, if required, as well as round-trip mileage from home office to Pittsburgh International Airport will be provided by the couple.  

 

BOOKING AND REFUND POLICY:

officiate all of my own ceremonies and take great pride in the fact that each and every one is delivered with "heart" and "passion".  Booking is first come, first serve and dates will be held with a 50% NONREFUNDABLE deposit with final payment being due two weeks prior to the ceremony.  If by chance you find it necessary to change the date of your ceremony, weddings may be rescheduled once, with all monies being fully transferrable to the new date, provided that I am available to officiiate your ceremony at that time. Additional rescheduling will incur a $150 rescheduling fee. After two reschedules, all monies paid will be forfeited and any further reschedules will be treated as new bookings.

'My husband and I were fortunate to have Pam Powers Moore officiate our May 2012 wedding. After our initial phone conversation with Pam we knew she was a perfect fit for us. Pam took the time to get to know our personalities and what we envisioned for the ceremony. She then wrote a draft and asked for our feedback. She did such a good job that we had few revisions. As we requested, Pam’s ceremony reflected our religious beliefs but was not “preachy.” She focused on the importance of love and marriage and being good to one another. Not only were my husband and I happy, but several guests commented on how beautiful Pam’s ceremony was. On top of that Pam is an incredibly sweet, caring person. We could not have asked for anything more and full-heartedly recommend Pam Powers Moore as a wedding officiant." [Reviewed 7/23/2012 on The Knot]
