Big Sky Blessing is a unique wedding officiant business that was built by Adam and a Cristina Watson in Red Lodge, Montana. They had 3 successful years officiating weddings. They recently moved to Palmer Alaska and decided to grow their wedding business in Alaska. The business is run a by husband-and-wife team Adam and Cristina, who both officiate weddings and are also ordained ministers.

Pricing

First of all thanks for taking the time to visit our site. The most common question we receive is of course about pricing. I wanted to take a few moments and explain how we run our business.

We require a $100 non refundable deposit to hold the date. We send an invoice from our Square account. It has a link where you can pay using any major debit or credit card. We do not see your personal information and its 100% safe and secure. The remaining balance is due the day before the wedding. We will work with our clients if they prefer to pay cash for the remaining balance at the time of the wedding.

We have two wedding packages. Our most popular is our simple package which is $370.00. We send you several examples of elopement ceremonies along with ceremonies we have done that we feel may fit what your looking for. They are all in word format. Most our clients take several examples and create on their own. Then email us the finished products at least three days prior to the weddings.

Our second option is all inclusive. We interview you both in person or on the phone. We get all the information we need to design and create your perfect ceremony. We email you over a rough draft for your approval and make any changes you want made. That package is $460.00 and includes us researching any speciality items such as unique unity ceremonies etc.

Depending on your desired location there may be a travel surcharge to help cover our travel expenses.

Please don't hesitate to contact us for more questions. We love to talk to our clients and get to know them all.

Please check us out on Facebook. We keep it more current than here and you can view some of the amazing weddings we have done.

    I can’t thank Adam and Cristina enough. My (now) husband and I were looking to have a small ceremony with a limited budget, and they helped us plan just that. We really valued his ideas an input for how to coordinate the best possible event.

    We contacted three different people, but Adam called us back right away. He was friendly, informative, and helped us plan something that was exactly what we wanted and within our budget.

    I could tell they genuinely care about us and our well-being as people and as a newlywed couple, not just as clients.

    They gave us exactly what we wanted, and we couldn’t be happier with the experience. Thank you both for making our wedding day special.

    Big Sky Blessing's reply:

    It was an absolute blessing meeting you both. We do sincerely care about you both and hope to see you soon when you’re both back in Montana. Thanks for taking the time to give us a review.

    Adam was knowledgeable, helpful and made preparing for my ceremony effortless. Due to weather, I had to move my ceremony up 3 hours earlier than scheduled. He still showed up early, professional and prepared. His personable and friendly attitude made him a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!

    Big Sky Blessing's reply:

    Remy, We had the best time coming to beautiful Big Sky to do your wedding. Talking to Jacob and his Dad made me feel at home with those strong southern accents LOL. Thank you for the iPad book cover. You two were so kind to us. We felt like family at your wedding. Thanks for allowing us to use your photos on our Facebook cover page. You two are awesome!
