Joining Two Hearts Into One Perfect Beat!

How Our Fees Are Calculated 

In the state of MT, the fees are as marked, plus travel (25 cents per mile).  Outside MT, add an extra $100.00.  Add-ons to the wedding ceremonies are also available upon request for an additional fee.

Sweetheart Wedding - $100.00 ($200.00 outside of MT) 

The Sweetheart ceremony is an elopement (civil) ceremony.  The only people at the ceremony are the bride and groom only, plus the officiant.  It is a quick and simple wedding service for couples who want to get married without all the planning and hassle of an elaborate wedding.

Simple Family/Friends Wedding - $150.00 ($250.00 outside MT)

This is a smaller version of the standard wedding ceremony.  Also used for prison weddings.  There is a maximum of 2-15 witnesses allowed at the service, in addition to the bride and groom.

Standard Wedding - $200.00 ($300.00 outside of MT) 

This is the full size ceremony for the couples who wish to have all the pomp and circumstance of a full "traditional wedding" ceremony.  Handfastings also fit into this category.  The maximum number of attendees allowed for this ceremony must not exceed the maximum occupancy limit for the venue in which the wedding is to take place.

Religion Specific Wedding - $200.00 ($300.00 outside of MT)

If you want or need your wedding to adhere to religious tradition, we can make sure that happens.  Whether you are Christian, Jewish, Muslim or Catholic, AWM will make sure all traditions are followed to the letter.  Inter-faith weddings are also available upon request.

Theme Wedding - $300.00 ($400.00 outside of MT)

If you want to add an extra special flair to your wedding, try a theme wedding.  Add costumes, props, and even customize your ceremony to reflect your wedding theme.  Military & Medieval themes available now.

Baptism, Christening, Dedication  - $50.00 (Available in MT only)

This does not give your baby membership to any specific church or group, but gathers the community close to the family to watch over the spiritual growth of the child.

Last Rites, Funeral, Memorial Service - $0.00 (Donations accepted, but not required.  Currently available in MT only) 

The death, or the impending death of a loved one creates an emotional burden that is always difficult to bear.  With all the plans needing to be made, the last thing you need to worry about is trying to find a minister who won't charge an arm and a leg for their services.  That is why we offer last rites, funerals, and memorial services at absolutely no charge.  Donations are always accepted, but never required for these end-of-life ceremonies.  Please accept our condolences if you are considering us for these services.

Other Rites of Passage

AWM does perform other rites of passage.  If you  desire a ceremony that is not listed here, please feel free to email me and let me know what you are looking for.  Fees will be determined for each ceremony after wishes have been discussed.


May God Bless You All !
