Yes, the use of my office/chapel for an elopement is by appointment only. Since I travel to do weddings at other locations, this ensures that I am at the Chapel when you go there. I do have late appointments available, and can accommodate same day appointments most of the time.
I most certainly do! You can count on my service as your Wedding Officiant. I have experience with the LGBTQ community and you are more than welcome here! If you need more information regarding my services, feel free to contact me.
I do not charge extra if your ceremony runs a bit behind. By a bit I mean no more than 45 minutes behind.However, I do ask that you are mindful of my schedule and strive to start things on time. Arriving a bit early provides me with the option of filling out the paper work before your ceremony starts. I understand things happen, and I would not charge you anything in addition unless your ceremony starts later than the 45 minutes I allow in my schedule.
No, you are not required to have a witness in order to get married in the State of Indiana.
Yes! I am already pre-approved for most institutions in Indiana. My goal is to make this as much of a good experience as possible.

Some Officiants or Ministers have require different things in order to marry you. Many requirements range from belonging to their church, pre-marital counseling, etc…

The only “requirement” I have is you will need to have your Marriage license in order for me to Legally marry you. Your marriage license expires 60 days after you apply. I do not recommend applying for it more than two months before your wedding date. This way you have around a month for it to be returned and filed with the clerks office.

HOWEVER, if you are just doing a commitment ceremony, then you are not required to have anything for this type of ceremony since the outcome would not be a legal marriage.
