CUSTOM WILD WEDDING
If you could get married anywhere in Maine, and I mean ANYWHERE, where would it be?
As a Maine Wedding Officiant and Registered Maine Guide, I'm here to help you get to the remote setting where you wish to wed - whether we get there by car, truck, foot, canoe, and/or floatplane. I'm also the person who officiates your marriage and files the legal paperwork.
Custom Wild Wedding prices begin at $600 for a memorable marriage ceremony in beautiful locations that are easy to hike to. Prices increase with varying specifics including time of day, specific location, hike distance, elevation gain, formality of dress, whether you choose to be "guided" to a wilderness location or mountain top, and whether you need one or two witnesses provided. Fill out the Custom Wedding Inquiry Form with all of your details and you will be provided with a price for your custom, wedding adventure ceremony.
Don't have a remote place in mind, but still want to say your vows in a unique, natural and beautiful setting? An Elopement Package could be a great fit for you! A destination elopement will get the job done in the simplest way with minimal planning and expense.
Prices include an initial meeting with me (in-person or virtual), up to four people (two to be wed, plus two guests) led from parked vehicles to the ceremony spot and back, and filing legal paperwork either in the town most local to the destination (if you're from out of state) or in the town of your Maine residence. Available upon request but not included in posted prices: hiking gear, photography, food, witnesses, lodging or transporting people. Begin your outdoor destination wedding by filling out this Elopement Package Inquiry Form.
