Your wedding ceremony is the reason your guests travel thousands of miles across land and ocean to be with you... the reception is just the icing on the cake! The words of love, and the promises that you make to each other as you join your lives in marriage, will be remembered by you, your families and your guests for many years. 

As your wedding Officiant and Coordinator, it will be our pleasure to help you create a personalized, heart-centered ceremony that will radiate love, joy, and happiness, and deliver that ceremony with positive energy and intention. Your wedding vows are one of the most important elements of your wedding ceremony…the words of love and commitment that you say to each other, and the promises you make, will set the tone for your marriage, and will be remembered for the rest of your lives. We can guide you through choosing all the elements you'd like to include in your wedding ceremony, such as helping you write your vows, readings, rituals, and your unique personal touches. Your ceremony should be a reflection of both of your personalities, visions, and dreams for this day, and my number one goal is to help make it as stress-free as possible.

We have five experienced Officiants on the Wedding Angel Events team, and our fees reflect the total amount of time that we spend with you and your fiancé/partner. This includes our initial consultation, 2 meetings before your event, helping with your vows, your ceremony rehearsal, and coordinating and Officiating your wedding ceremony on your big day.

(weddings outside of Bangor will be subject to a mileage fee.)

•  We can also perform a personalized Renewal of Vows ceremony for you and your spouse, celebrating the love that you share with each other.

Your Maine Elopement

Good things come in small, but still amazing packages!

Sometimes smaller really is better. At Wedding Angel Events we believe that you should have the wedding of your dreams, even if a big wedding isn't your style. We love weddings of all shapes and sizes, and we think that even the smallest weddings (20 guests or less) still deserve to have just as much creative thought and passion dedicated to them.

For years, the word "elopement" didn't leave much to the imagination - a quick, simple courthouse ceremony, still done in love, but perhaps a bit lackluster or underwhelming. We feel that just because your wedding is small, doesn't mean it shouldn't be full of wonder and amazement! Chances are you feel the same way too.

We're happy to offer the Sweet Petite Elopement Package, which is perfect for a relaxed and beautifully understated wedding day!

Elopement Availability - 

April - October - Mon, Tues, Wed., Thurs

November - March - any day. 

The Sweet Petite Elopement Package

 

 This package includes:

  • 1 ceremony planning call

  • Unlimited email support

  • Sharing  pre-written ceremonies and readings for you and your fiance to choose from for your 10 minute wedding ceremony

  • A professional Officiant to perform your wedding ceremony

  • Filing your marriage license with the city/town hall.

  • A digital copy of your marriage license

Your investment begins at $300.00.

Please note:

Any potential venue fees, permits, travel,  and hotel accommodation costs will be added to the above investment price.

You will need two people to witness your wedding ceremony and sign your marriage certificate. You may provide those witnesses yourself, or for an additional fee of $300 Wedding Angel Events can provide two witnesses for your ceremony.

Kind Words

“Ali put our minds (and hearts) at ease. We were nervous hiring somebody who we didn't know to be our officiant, but she took the time to get to know us and helped us create a beautiful, personalized wedding ceremony. She attended the rehearsal and worked with our other vendors to make sure everything was taken care of. She is passionate, creative, and truly loves what she does."

Lindsay and Bryan Bridger
