What Does My Ceremony Package at Heaven's Grace Include?

g 
                    
   Making Couples Happy Is What We Do

.

.

MY MISSION is to share my passion for love and marriage by offering couples the opportunity to celebrate their vows in the quiet, peaceful solitude of a countryside setting. True, faithful, and abiding love is a precious gift from God and a gift to be treasured. It is my greatest desire to honor that gift in each and every ceremony I write. I invite you to contact me concerning your upcoming marriage ceremony and I look forward to sharing Heaven's Grace and the gifts God has given me.       .

MESSAGE FROM PASTOR PAM:  Please keep in mind that my home is located in an outdoor country setting and is susceptible to all the wonderful sights and sounds of nature that make this the relaxing tranquil location that my couples have come to love and enjoy. I do everythng within my power to ensure that your visit is an enjoyable one and strive to make your wedding ABSOLUTELY perfect in every way. However, as diligent as I am, some things are beyond my control and I hope you will please understand and not be disturbed by occasional elemental weather changes and unexpected sounds of nature; i.e., wind, rain, dogs barking, traffic, etc. Weather conditions are unpredictable and as all of us know, they can change at any time. In the event of bad weather, I can arrange to hold your ceremony at a local church. If this is not a viable alternative, it is suggested that a safe and secure second option be arranged in order that your ceremony can proceed as scheduled. If a second option is not secured and your ceremony has to be canceled, I will be happy to transfer any monies paid to another date and time of your choosing provided that my schedule permits and I am available to perform your ceremony at that time.

Things You Need to Know Prior to Your Countryside Wedding Ceremony?

* I officiate all of my own ceremonies and take great pride in the fact that each and every one is delivered with "heart" and "passion".

* Ceremonies held at my home are considered Christian Worship Services and are officiated tenderly, reverently and respectfully.

* My only requirements are that couples truly love each other, that they understand the importance and sanctity of marriage and that they have a sincere desire to be united as Husband and Wife under God's Blessing.  That's it!

* We are proud of the quiet, serene atmosphere that is so much a part of our surroundings and are happy to share that beauty with you and your guests.

* There is no more lovely scenery than that which nature provides and we make every effort to make our wedding areas beautiful. No further decorating is necessary, but you may bring your own decorations, if desired.

* If you would like to use your own decorations, they must be removed promptly following your ceremony and everything put back the way it was when you arrived. 

* I allow one hour per ceremony and ask that you and your guests plan to arrive no sooner than 10 minutes prior to the start of your ceremony.

* Please come dressed and ready as changing facilities  are not available.

* Because of parking limitations, the guest count is limited to no more than 50 guests.

* Black wrought iron benches are provided for the Bride and Groom's immediate families, and will accommodate up to 10-12 family members, and/ or guests. You may bring your own chairs, or any seating you would like to ensure that everyone is comfortable. Guests often prefer to bring their camp chairs, and some even like to gather around the Bride and Groom and stand during the ceremony. My gazebo is in a cozy, outdoor setting, and I want everyone to be able to sit back, relax and enjoy the moments as they join in the happiness of the occasion.

* All couples must present a valid West Virginia Marriage License prior to the start of their Ceremony. This does not apply to Vow Renewals or Commitment Ceremonies. West Virginia does not have a waiting period, and Licenses are printed at the time of application. On the day of your wedding, or preferably at your Rehearsal if you have one, I ask that you please bring your License to me. Following your ceremony, I will sign and file it with the proper authorities, and send a copy to you by email. Out of State residents may apply for and receive their Marriage License at any  West Virginia Courthouse. In-State residents are required to obtain their License at the Courthouse in their county of residence. Marriage Licenses are valid for 60 days from the date of issue and are available for a fee of $56. Any Ceremony performed without a valid West Virginia Marriage License will be considered a Commitment Ceremony only and will not hold legal status.

* We are happy to include a Complimentary Photo Package as part of your Countryside Wedding Ceremony package. Photos will be delivered digitally, by email within three days of your ceremony. Collages will be sent to your home of record by U.S. Mail.

* No Personal or Professional Photography and/or Videography is permitted on the property. [NO EXCEPTIONS]

* Cameras and Personal Video Recording Devices are not permitted on the property [NO EXCEPTIONS]

* Telecommunication devices; cell phones, blackberries, and such must be turned off prior to the start of the ceremony. [NO EXCEPTIONS] 

* Booking is first come first serve and dates will be held with a 50% NONREFUNDABLE deposit with final payment being due 30 days prior to the ceremony. 

* If by chance you find it necessary to change the date of your ceremony, all monies will be fully transferrable to the new date, provided that my schedule permits and I am available to perfrom your service at that time.

* Short-Notice and Last-Minute Ceremonies are always welcome. Weddings booked within a 24 hour window may incur additional fees.

* Your wedding is a special moment in your life and if you would like to have your father or other designated person walk you down the aisle, I encourage you to do that. 

* I welcome the opportunity for you to share the enjoyment of your "first dance as husband and wife" immediately following your ceremony. I have a wide selection of songs and if you choose one that I don't have, I will be happy to download it.

* I do not host wedding receptions at my home; however, I can recommend several wonderful restaurants and facilities in the area that can accommodate your needs.  

* We take great effort to ensure that your experience at my home is an enjoyable one and that your needs are met in every way.

* I ask that you please be respectful of the fact that this IS my personal residence and not a public venue.

* By appointment only.  

. 

NOTE:  My weddings are scheduled to allow one hour per ceremony and it is encouraged that couples make every effort to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the ceremony start time. When the ceremony does not begin promptly at the hour it is scheduled, it cuts into the next couple's time and does not allow them the experience they expect and deserve. 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 also to allow me to do the best job possible in providing a beautiful, memorable wedding day. 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 starting the wedding on schedule helps that to happen. Thank you for your consideration and I appreciate your understanding.

OPTIONAL ITEMS:

 

Interpretive Services Available Upon Request.

 

E Book Written by Pastor Pam - "Secrets to a Deeper Love: How to Create a Happy Marriage" - $12.95  

It has been said that a successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person. The real act of marriage takes place in the heart. It's a choice that lasts long after our wedding day and should be reflected in the way we treat and interact with our spouse.  But sometimes life gets in the way, and it isn't always easy to hold on to the same loving feelings we had when we said our "I do's". God cares deeply for all of us and desires that our lives be full of peace, joy, and contentment, free from all the pain and stress that the world sometimes offers. Tough issues plague our society and bring pain to our lives which in turn can cause problems in our marriages, leaving us in search of answers. This is the basis for my book "Secrets to a Deeper Love." I have an awareness of these issues and it is my vision and passion to help others deal with them; not only in their lives, but in the lives of others with whom they care deeply. This book is also a great Pre-Marital Counseling tool, and has even helped couples resolve marital issues after the wedding day.. 

 

Vow and Photo Collages - $25 Each/ Both for $45

Photos are Included With All Countryside Weddings officiated at Heaven's Grace.

Custom Collages May be Purchased at a Cost of $25 Each or Both for $45. (Examples Shown Below)

Rehearsals - $100 

A Rehearsal is Included with the "From Here to Eternity," but may be Added to Any Other Package for a Fee of $100. 

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

This includes wedding music up to one (1) hour before your ceremony. The Bridal March or your choice of Processional and Recessional/ First Dance Song is included with your package. 

[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.

 

Writing Service - Fee will be based on the Package chosen from the above offerings., minus photography fees. 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 fiancé approve your dream ceremony, I will finalize it and deliver it to you in a beautiful keepsake binder, along with a copy in easily 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 and makes preparation for the next ceremony more stressful. That being said, there will be a $50 per 15-minute late fee for weddings that do not start on time. This fee is designed 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 or after 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.

Booking is first come, first served and dates are held with a 50% NONREFUNDABLE deposit, the remainder of which is due 30 days prior to the wedding day. Deposits are remitted and accepted in good faith, and from the moment of initial booking, until the moment of "I do," my services are all about the couple and crafting a ceremony that mirrors their thoughts, dreams, and emotions perfectly. If by chance a couple finds it necessary to change their ceremony date, that couple may reschedule their wedding once, with all monies being fully transferrable to the new date, provided that the wedding is held within one year of the original date, and my schedule permits me to officiate the 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. Ceremonies booked within 30 days of the Wedding date will require payment in full at the time of booking.
