|Pilgrim Chapel is an exceptionally beautiful
site for your
wedding, and I am delighted the folks there have invited
me to help you plan and lead your ceremony.
Whether you want a traditional, civil, multi-faith,
The folks at Pilgrim Chapel and I want planning
When Pilgrim Chapel asks me to preside over your marriage ceremony, I write you to let you know I look forward to sharing your wedding day.
I'll ask you some basic questions so I can get started helping you plan. I'll refer you to some resources on this web site. We can plan together what you want easily by email.
You have rented an extraordinary facility for your wedding (the Chapel calls a one-hour rental an "elopement"). I always enjoy working with the great staff. The place is clean, beautiful, safe, and adaptable. But you may need to plan your one hour carefully. Because the place is so popular, there may be an event right before or right after your rental.
* The doors open 15 minutes before the beginning of your rental hour to you and to your guests, so you may want to announce a ceremony time 15-20 minutes after your hour begins, and remind your guests not to arrive before the doors open. If you have musicians and photographers, or you have placed an order from a florist, please let them also know not to arrive until your hour begins.You can have a complete, unrushed, and beautiful ceremony if you plan the hour well. If you may need more time, I suggest you contact the folks at Pilgrim Chapel to see if a longer rental might be possible. The staff there and I are eager to make your wedding all that you want it to be.
If you wish a simple ceremony, just complete the first 11 points with any additional information you wish to send.
If the wedding is just the two of you, let me and the folks at Pilgrim Chapel and me know so we can provide two witnesses to sign the legal documents.
