Officiant Services Guide​​



Most 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 a great alternative to a courthouse wedding.


Wedding or 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.


Package Includes:  Couple works with the Officiant to customize the ceremony, as an option we offer Rehearsal Facilitation, and we travel to your venue of choice.*

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.*

*Idaho does not require Witnesses, but Oregon requires two.


Wedding Rehearsal

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.

Minor Fees

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
