Do We have to have premarital counseling?
This is not required at all with me!
How long does a typical ceremony last?
Typically about 15-30 minutes.
The awesome thing is that is YOUR day, so we can make it as long or as short as you'd like! When you book your consultation, we go over all these details!
Can we write our Own vows?
Absolutely!! This is your Magickal Wedding and I encourage you to do so if it calls to you.
If not, there are always other options that we will cover during your consultation!
Are there any restrictions during the ceremony?
