How We Work on Your Wedding Day
HeartLight celebrants are available to offer support, answer questions and assist you in the creation of your ceremony and vows throughout the weeks and months leading up to your wedding.
On the day of your wedding your celebrant will arrive approximately 1/2 hour before the service. Any last minute questions or changes to the ceremony can be handled at this time.
Each HeartLight Celebrant brings a calm, professional and joyful energy to your ceremony. The fee for the ceremony can be paid at the rehearsal. If there is no rehearsal, the fee is paid at the signing of the marriage license. Please have one person designated to take care of this task. Checks may be made out to individual officiants. Thank you for choosing us to be part of your special day. We do everything we can to make sure it is meaningful and memorable.
We also provide the 72 hour waiting period waiver in New Orleans for couples from out of state, who will not be applying for a license 72 hours before the wedding. There is no fee for this service. See the New Orleans marriage license page for more information.
