Packages

The style and package you choose depends on how detailed you want your wedding day to be. Some couples choose to have a short and simple ceremony with just a few guests. Other couples want a medium size wedding that has all the essentials of a wedding ceremony, perhaps held at a private home or in a park, with more guests in attendance. And then there are other couples who want to have a large wedding with all the pomp and ceremony that will make your day extraordinary.

Whatever you decide, our packages and fees will fit in your wedding plans. You have the choice to keep it simple, elope if you wish, or enjoy the pomp and ceremony of an elegant wedding day.
