As your wedding officiant, it is my dream for you to experience the wedding ceremony of your dreams, I bring you the passion I have for expression, a hardcore belief in love, flexibility, and openness to new ideas. I ensure you a calm and charted path from where you are right now to where you want to be, united forever in love.
Your wedding ceremony honors the values and inspiration that have supported you this far and what you will be returning to again and again as you travel through time together as individuals, the best of friends, lovers, and partners. At the heart of your wedding ceremony is a celebration of the beauty and strength of your relationship while declaring your new identities as married people. A wedding ceremony is a great and beautiful thing.
Thank you so much for considering me for your officiant! Please use the "Message Vendor" template to let me know the date and location of your wedding and I will get back to you with my availability and an estimate of the transportation fees. I travel often to officiate weddings and have used Skype and Zoom, for example, to work successfully with couples who are planning their day from outside the southeastern Wisconsin area.

Elizabeth is one of a kind. I feel so blessed to have met her. She has such a soothing presence. She remained in very consistent contact with us, and lead us every step of the way to prepare a beautiful and unique ceremony that fit in with our values. She spent so much time getting to know us, and learning about us as a couple, and as individuals. I really feel like she "gets" us. She is very passionate about life and love and her spirituality. It was something that my husband and I both admired. She was patient and helped us when we were indecisive or vague, and she used her vast experience to put our scattered ideas together into something really beautiful. We received numerous compliments on her, and our ceremony. We were told by one guest that ours was the most touching and unique service they had ever attended, and ours was their 5th wedding this year. I'm almost sad that marriage is once in a lifetime, because I'd love to hire Elizabeth again! I will reccomend her to every couple I meet.
Thank you, Elizabeth. You created the most important and beautiful piece of our wedding, and we are so grateful.

AMAZING. Very pleased
Elizabeth was great from the very beginning until the end. She made sure the ceremony turned out just how we imagined. She took the time to get to know us and incorporated our traditions (lazo and arras) in the ceremony. Our ceremony was bilingual (English and Spanish) and her Spanish was very good! Overall, we loved our ceremony and so did our guests. Very pleased!

Better than I imagined
We knew Elizabeth was a perfect fit after our first conversation on the phone. Elizabeth was extremely attentive and flexible to our vision. We had a very particular vision in mind, and Elizabeth took what we offered and elevated it to perfection. Although we had specific ideas for our wedding, there were some things we never thought of. Elizabeth understood the tone we were seeking and offered so much incredible material. We look at our ceremony as the result of a partnership between us and Elizabeth. She brought so much beauty to our ceremony and will be the focus of our memories for decades to come.
The entire process was not only easy, but brought peace to us knowing we had such a professional and creative officiant. After our first skype consultation (we live our of state), we looked at each other and said "she gets it".
We can not recommend Elizabeth enough. She takes this very seriously and is able to provide exactly what you want. It is essential to have the right officiant for such an important moment of your life.
Elizabeth Burgert, Simple Ministry Price Rates
I love booking with my couples well in advance of the actual date. With time to spare, the bride and groom are able to consider creative options for their ceremony that will make it uniquely theirs, nuanced, and unforgettable. Early in the planning and production season of their wedding day, couples who prefer time-honored traditions and language also benefit from ticking the ceremony box off their to-do list . So, I'm offering a significant discount on weddings for 2019 that are booked by midnight, February 28! Next year, my wedding rate will go up $100, but if you book with me by midnight on February 28, 2019, you will get this 2018's price of $350*.
Enjoy every precious moment of your engagement with your fiance! This is such an exciting time in your lives. Contact me with your wedding date and the venue location to see if my fees will work within your budget for your ceremony. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
*The $200 booking fee will not be raised. The remaining balance, less the booking fee, is due one month before your Big Day. Rehearsal and transportation fees in 2019 will only be slightly higher than this year's.
Elizabeth Burgert performed a wedding ceremony at our facility recently and she was extremely professional, organized and easy to work with which is vital in ensuring the bride and groom's wedding day is perfect for them. I would recommend Elizabeth and look forward to working with her in the future.
Elizabeth delivered a beautiful ceremony at a gorgeous wedding at the Geneva Inn in Lake Geneva! Bravo!
Working with Elizabeth was easy and fun. She's a kind soul and she made the ceremony a beautiful event for the couple. She was flexible and worked with me to make sure we had the couple in the best light (making my job easier and a better product for the clients, and in the end that's what matters).
