Pastor John T. Snelson, V performs Non-Denominational ceremonies with the willingness to do whatever it takes to make your ceremony unique and represent your love for each other.
The standard rate for a Wedding / Vow Renewal within the greater Oklahoma City area is $250.00 This includes submitting the State marriage license, up to two 30 minute consultations, the ceremony and the wedding rehearsal (up to one hour.)
If the wedding is to be outside of the Greater Oklahoma City Metro Area; a travel fee may be required. This is decided on a case by case basis; this fee if any, would only be used to cover travel time, mileage, and overnight lodging (if more than 1 hour from Oklahoma City.) We are willing to be involved as much or as little in your wedding as you would like; this is your special day.

Frequently Asked Questions for Officiant
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
YES, all that is required is enough room for us to stand, the smallest place was under a drooping mulberry tree. There was enough room for the bride & groom, maid of honor, best man and myself. I'm very flexible when it comes to locations because this is your wedding.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
YES, it is your wedding and I am here to accommodate you any way I can.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
YES, I encourage you to write your own vows because then they will be lasting from your heart. I can also co-write vows when you need inspiration.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple may choose?
YES, I have numerous resources available.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
OPTIONAL, it is not a requirement, after all you know if you are in love or not.
