Ceremony Services Pricing

What Are My Fees?

**Now Booking for Fall 2021 and Spring/Summer 2022!**


Please note: The COVID-19 situation could impact my ability to perform your ceremony. Should that be the case, I will make every effort to find a substitute officiant for you well in advance of your scheduled ceremony date and time. I am now booking weddings for October 2021 and beyond and in accordance with OR and WA guidelines. Thank you for your understanding.

Jon did a fantastic job at our ceremony! We had a lot of ideas but weren’t really sure how to bring it all together. He helped us understand what would work well and what we might want to change. However, he let it be our ceremony, so we were the final deciders. Jon was extremely flexible and very responsive usually responding to emails and calls within hours. Despite booking him only a few weeks before the ceremony, Jon was able to streamline all our wishes and provide us with the most sentimental, loving, and “us” ceremony possible. We would highly recommend Jon to any and all couples.

I’ve made the fee for my services as reasonable and as transparent as possible for you.

If you need more than the simple services listed, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I may be able to help you directly or provide you with a referral to someone who can help you. I want to help make your ceremony as close to perfect for you as possible!

We loved Jon. He arrived early and stayed late while we scrambled to collect some things we forgot for the ceremony. A hearty recommendation.” – Steven W, Vancouver, WA

A non-refundable $50 retainer via PayPal is due when you book me in order to reserve your date. Your date is not guaranteed until your retainer has been received. The remaining balance is due 7 days prior to the ceremony and is non-refundable from that time. A $100 cancellation fee is due for cancellations occurring less than 30 days prior to the scheduled ceremony date and time.  You can make your retainer or full payment using the pull-down menu and Add to Cart button below. Please check Jon’s Booking Calendar (below for smartphone, on the left for tablet or computer) or contact me by phone at 503-877-4609 or email at jonturino@gmail.com before making a payment. 

Please contact me even if your date shows Booked. Depending on times and venues I may still be able to accommodate your needs!

And please don’t forget to have the marriage license, issued at least 3 full days in advance in WA State, on hand along with two witnesses! I can’t legally marry you without them! Ceremonies that start more than 30 minutes late may be subject to an additional $50 charge.
