Celebrate Life and Love
Arbor Vine is a Mobile Ministry. We provide Ceremony Officiant services in Boise, Idaho, and surrounding areas. Our passion is to provide affordably priced, beautifully written personal ceremonies in English or Spanish. We believe that each event is as unique as the people involved.
We narrate your love story in the perfect last-minute Elopement, Marriage Ceremony, Anniversary Vow Renewal, or your final goodbye in a Celebration of Life Ceremony.
Please find us on Facebook or Instagram!
Elopements involve minimal planning, and traditionally the bride and groom hurry away to be secretly married. But by modern definition, they are spur-of-the-moment, informal, intimate ceremonies, most often with just the Officiant, the Couple, and maybe witnesses*. This is an excellent alternative to a courthouse wedding.
Because of the relaxed nature of this type of celebration, when available, an officiant can be ready fairly quickly to solemnize your marriage.
Some of our favorite local free sites for these impromptu ceremonies are your home, Idaho Fallen Firefighters Memorial Park, Kathryn Albertson Park, The Boise Train Depot, and the Idaho State Capitol Building.
Celebration of Life
Saying goodbye is rarely easy, and when it's a final goodbye the emotions can be overwhelming. We will guide you through the process of putting together the ceremony that best suits your loved one. Creating an atmosphere of love and support that allows everyone an opportunity honor their grief and your loved one.
We travel to your venue of choice.*
Marriage Ceremony or Anniversary Vow Renewal
When you spend months planning your wedding or big anniversary vow renewal, there are many details to cover. Arbor Vine Officiants encourage you to be hands-on, and we work with you to build the ceremony you envision for beginning your new life together or continuing the life you already share. We infuse your traditions, and often we have ideas you may not have thought of yet.
The couple works with the Officiant to customize the ceremony; as an option, we offer Rehearsal Facilitation, and we travel to your venue of choice.*
A correctional facility is not an ideal wedding venue. However, we are vetted and approved to perform ceremonies at Ada County Jail, IDOC facilities, and SRCI in Oregon. Canyon County Jail does not allow in-person visits or outside clergy. Contact them directly for their process.
Advanced planning is critical. All ceremonies must be approved by the facility and the marriage license process is a little more complex because the 2nd party involved cannot appear in person to apply.
We know how important this ceremony is for you and your family. We are experienced, and our sole focus for the day is you and your ceremony. We work with your coordinator, if you have one, or we can help instruct a friend or family member with some day of duties to keep things running smoothly. We know that there might be hiccups, but we have the experience to minimize them.
We love to travel, weather permitting! The final price for all ceremonies more than 45 minutes from the Officiant's home will factor in travel distance, time, and lodging when necessary*.
*One Night of Officiant Lodging is required for Classic Ceremonies more than 75 miles (approximately 1.5 hours travel one way) outside of Boise when they include Officiant Rehearsal Facilitation. Your Officiant will discuss the options with you.
Some venue locations may require your officiant to pay out of pocket on the day of your event. These items will be added in advance to your contract. Examples of Minor Fees: Mountain Resort Lift Ticket, Parking, Venue Entrance Fee
