Dwight Phetteplace: Award winning guitarist, singer, and NH JP

NH Officiant Services

 

 

  "Working with Dwight was absolutely wonderful. It is always difficult hiring someone you've found online that you've never met,        and really...know little about. I hired Dwight based on the reviews (they are phenomenal!) and I am SO glad that I did!                   Dwight was an absolute joy to work with. When my husband and I met him to go over details before the wedding, it was like we       had known him for years. He is such a pleasure to work with. He is trustworthy and truly cares                                                      about his clients."

I have been a part of hundreds of weddings (mostly as a musician) and each was unique. Yet from the simplest elopement to the most elegant wedding event, it is always a privilege to be part of the beauty and power of that moment of commitment. 

...And it is always fun to help couples create that moment.

My goal as an officiant is to help you experience the wedding celebration perfect for you two unique individuals.  Whether your vision is simple or elaborate, I'll help it unfold gracefully, as you envisioned it. Anywhere in New Hampshire.

...and , of course, I'll take care of the legalities, so that it counts...

 

Basic Officiating packages:

Included in all my fees:

*** travel to and from your ceremony anywhere in NH.

***One planning meeting within 50 miles of Concord. ( additional meetings @ $25 if needed)

***Phone planning sessions as needed.

***Filing your completed Marriage license with the appropriate Town Clerk.

 

 SIMPLE ELEGANCE PACKAGE: Unique Music and Officiant Combination.

If you're planning a small informal wedding...maybe 50 or fewer guests in a backyard or park, it can still be special and memorable.

Imagine your guests arriving to beautiful acoustic guitar music, then when the moment arrives, music for the entrance of the bride and her escorts. Then I set aside the guitar and perform your wedding ceremony, with readings and  vows of your choice. After pronouncing you married , I will again play as you walk out and for a few minutes as things unwind.

Includes travel, one planning session, phone sessions, and filing your completed marriage license.

Simple and Elegant !

$400    ( Without music  $200 )

(Maximum of 50 guests;  Planning a larger wedding ? See Full Ceremony Package below: )

 

ELOPEMENT PACKAGE: (elopement service doesn't include planning meeting):

Although simple, this can still be, and should still be, meaningful.

I will meet you anywhere in NH that is special to you ( also see Hike-in option below), or anywhere convenient. I will perform the basic legal wedding ceremony and file the marriage license, and you're set.

 I encourage you to write your own brief vows to one another, but that is not necessary. You can just show up and we'll go from there. No witnesses are required in NH, but you are welcome to bring guests. It is particularly nice to have someone come along to take some photos. But if it's just you, I'll be happy to take a couple photos with your phone or camera.

Fee:    $100

 

FULL CEREMONY SERVICE:  (over 50 guests)

I will help you create the ceremony that is perfect for you. I'll help you choose or write your vows, select readings, add special ceremonies...we'll make it awesome. Then I'll make sure it all goes smoothly on the big day.

With Music as described in the "Simple Elegance" package above:    $575

Without music:                            $325

 

ADDITIONAL SERVICES:

Rehearsal ( Recommended  for larger wedding parties):   $200

Sound system to amplify the actual vows and any readers: ( Recommended for outdoor ceremonies over 75 guests) $100

Hike-in Ceremonies: $100

Live music for post-ceremony cocktail hour: $150
