Wedding & Elopement Ceremony Package Overview

We have three groups of packages: Ceremony Only, Ceremony + Photography, and our Simple Signing Service.

Our services are priced differently depending on whether you are booking your wedding during the week or on a weekend (considered Friday after 5PM through Sunday). Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, and New Year’s Eve and Day, are booked at the weekend rate.

All packages include a service that meets the legal requirements needed to be married, guidance on obtaining a marriage license, completion of the legal paperwork, and unlimited email consultations with our team.


Ceremony Only Packages

 


We offer three types of officiating packages, depending on your celebration needs.

Please note that Ceremony Only packages do not include event planning services like our Ceremony + Photography options. With our Ceremony Only packages, we officiate ceremonies at the event that you organize and location you secure and ask that you book us after all that has been decided and arranged.

Client Praise

Tracy is that rare combination of a compassionate professional who also engages on a very personal level.
Paul & John, Create Your Story Package, April 2016
Tracy really listened to us, asked great questions and developed a ceremony that was a perfect reflection of what we wanted to say, and how we wanted to say it. Many of our guests assumed that Tracy was a close friend that we had known for years, because that is how it felt to everyone involved. She is that rare combination of a compassionate professional who also engages on a very personal level.

Our four Ceremony + Photography packages include our ceremony services, planning, and photography provided by one of our Partner Photographers.

We can accommodate up to 30 guests with the Intimate Destination Wedding package, and 50 with our Intimate Destination Wedding Package Plus option.

Our Savannah Elopement Experience & two Intimate Destination wedding packages also include dedicated planning support through our Client Concierge & service where we can set up appointments and services for your wedding, such as hair & makeup, flowers, dinner reservations, and other amenities to help you treat yourself!

Each ceremony package comes with an online digital gallery of professionally edited photos that you can use to view, share, download, and print your pictures from, within two weeks of your ceremony.

When you book a package with us, you will be working with an experienced officiant + photographer team. After having performed 800+ Ceremony + Photography packages together, and winning multiple awards for our work, we know the ins and outs of elopements- and Savannah- and how to make your day as special and enjoyable as possible!

The Simple Signing Service

 

We offer a marriage license signing service for couples who need to get married quickly and do not wish to have a formal ceremony called the Simple Signing Service. We’ll take care of the minimum necessary legal components to be married in Georgia so we can sign your marriage license in a relaxed and fun style.

Our Simple Signing Services are currently performed at the Forsyth Park and in Lafayette Square. Here is a quick overview about this service.

  • The cost is $125 on weekdays or $150 on Saturdays (limited availability).
  • You must have a valid marriage license that we can sign.
  • We allow up to four guests.
  • Signing Services cannot be booked more than three weeks in advance.
  • Payment must be made in advance and is non-refundable to avoid no-shows. 

 

During the week, you can also add a mini photoshoot with limited digital images with one of our photographers for a $300 combined package price.

Couples who use our Simple Signing Service are eligible for a 10% discount on future officiating services.

You can text us to schedule a Simple Signing Service after reading all about them


Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

 

 

Yay! The first step is to message us via the form at the bottom of the page. We’ll check availability with our team ASAP, and answer any questions you may have. Once you let us know that you’d like to move forward, a team member will send you a new client email with a link to an order form, contract, and invoice and it is due back to us within three days.  A 50% non-refundable retainer is required to book your ceremony. The retainer is non-refundable because it authorizes us to turn down other clients for your date and start work for you. You’ll pay online and we accept every major credit card. Your balance is due seven days before the ceremony unless you are paying your balance in cash. We do not accept checks. Our system will send reminders when payments are due.

We do, frequently!We charge an additional travel fee for ceremonies that take place on Tybee Island, St. Simon’s Island, and Jekyll Island, or in Richmond Hill, and Hinesville, Statesboro. Other locations in Chatham County do not require a travel fee. We will also travel out-of-state and to other locations in Georgia. Contact us for customized travel estimates.

If you have a ceremony on Hilton Head Island or in Beaufort County, South Carolina, or Atlanta, Georgia, we offer packages there with specific teams.

You can visit our elopement and intimate wedding packages page for more information on our Ceremony + Photography options. We also recommend reviewing our planning guide to help you decide which package would be best for your celebration.

Each of our Ceremony + Photography packages have specific guest limits and services included by design, based on our work with hundreds of couples and families, and knowing what it takes to have a successful event. If you are not interested in a bundled services package, you can always book us for your officiating needs with a Ceremony Only package and get custom quotes from photographers and other vendors.

We perform ceremonies (almost) everywhere! The location is your choice. With the exception of the Tracy’s Choice package (50 or fewer guests), there is no limit on guests for your ceremony unless you are purchasing a Ceremony + Photography package. Limits on guests for Ceremony Only packages are only constrained by the location or venue you choose. Clients are responsible for choosing their location and securing permits if required.

We have galleries that serve as guides to squares, parks, and other wedding and elopement locations in Savannah.

Because of crowds, we do not officiate Saturday elopements in Whitefield Square or at the Forsyth Park fountain. However, we are happy to grab some photos of just you in one of those locations as part of one of our newlywed walks or pedicab adventures with the Savannah Elopement Experience or Intimate Destination Wedding packages.

If you are planning a large wedding (more than 50 guests) and need planning assistance, I am happy to refer you to my favorite wedding planners and vendors.

Absolutely! Let us know which packages you are considering when you send in your inquiry and we can definitely give you guidance. I would ask myself these questions, also, and give us your answers, which can help us provide suggestions.


  • How important is the ceremony content to me? Do I have personal touches that I want to contribute?
  • How personal of a touch do I want from my officiant? Is it important that I meet with her- and when and how often- in the process?
  • If I am planning a destination wedding in Savannah, how much time do I personally have to spend on planning the ceremony?
