Weddings by Jester

Wedding ministers / officiates serving all of Ohio & West Virginia.


Do you perform ceremonies outside of the church?

Yes. The ceremony can be performed just about anywhere the couple wants.

We don't have a wedding planner / coordinator.  Do you help with conducting the rehearsal?

I assist as much or as little as the couple wishes.

What are your fees?

My fees are based upon location and are all inclusive.  No hidden fees or extra charges.

Do you charge extra for travel?

Yes and no. For the wedding the fees are all inclusive however I do charge for rehearsals.  The fee for a rehearsal is based on mileage and current cost of gasoline.

Do you require the couple to attend premarital counseling?


Can we write our own vows?

Yes. Some of the best vows I have ever heard came from the hearts of the couples.

What if a rehearsal or wedding does not start on time?

I will try my best to accommodate the couple however I may have another wedding scheduled and it would not be fair to the next couple to cause their ceremony to start late.
I try to allow a little extra time between weddings when booking just in case.

What if the wedding is postponed to another date?

Sometimes things happen in life that would cause a wedding to be postponed.  I will gladly reschedule your wedding date.

What if the wedding is cancelled?

Yes, sometimes it happens.  I will refund any fees paid minus the $50.00  retainer fee.

Do you stay for the rehearsal dinner?

Usually not as that is a time for the wedding party to enjoy each others company.

Do you stay for the wedding reception?

Usually not as I may have another wedding scheduled and have to leave right away.

What about pictures?

I will be in a lot of pictures just by the nature of where I stand.  However, if time allows, I will stay for a photo shoot if the couple desires it.

Can you recommend other service providers?

I have met many wonderful vendors over the years that I would gladly recommend.
