Costs are based on a number of factors including the type of ceremony, additional elements (unity candle, etc.) desired, what day of the week you have reserved, any holiday considerations, any overnight accommodations I have to book, rehearsal needs and mileage (calculated from my home office).
Rehearsal, although helpful, is not required. If my schedule is open and you want me to run through a rehearsal I certainly can. As an alternative, however, I am happy to provide a personalized rehearsal guide which saves you money!
