Please note


1.  Any travel beyond the Sacramento County Line will be an additional $50.00 due to time and travel.


2. Any rehearsals within Sacramento County will be an additional $50.00 due to time and travel but is very highly suggested.


3.  Any travel beyond the Sacramento County Line for a rehearsal will be $75.00 due to time and travel, but is very highly suggested. 


4. Payment is due immediately after the wedding ceremony.  It is normally attended to by the Best Man. Please ensure that the Best Man, the two witnesses, the Flower Girls and the Ring Bearer are available after the wedding.


5. Unfortunately, because of previous scenarios, without payment, I may have to refuse to sign the marriage certificate until payment is received in full. The other option for me is to NOT submit your wedding license to the County Recorder’s Office with extenuating circumstances. 



 I require that the license be presented to me, prior to the start of the wedding!  Do NOT tell me you don’t have one; you have it in the car; or it’s in your hotel room; or that your parents have it! I’ve heard those stories before, and it takes times away from my other weddings that I may have to attend to.     


7.  Please note that these are donations.  I have receipts with me that I can issue to you for your tax records.


 Military And Pinoy Discounts

Due to the fact that I am a retired U.S. Marine with over 21 years of service; and that our military service personnel have been coming home from overseas since December 2011, I will give any couple who will be married in the calendar year 2015, a $25.00 discount, if either of you have served, or still serving in any of the U.S. military services.    


NOW: The above coupon is good for any member of your family who has ever been in the military service.  Soooo, if your Uncle Ned was in Vietnam, I’ll give you $25.00 off your wedding ceremony.


If your Aunt Martha was a Nurse in WWII, I’ll still give you $25.00 off. If your Grandpa was in the Civil War at Bull Run, Gettysburg, or Antioch; I’ll still honor this offer.


If your Great Grandpa served in the American Revolution and fought against the British at Fort McKinley or Bunker Hill, I’ll donate the $25.00 back to you.


I’ll tell you what; if your Dad’s dad wore a coon’s skins hat and fought at the Alamo, I’ll take $25.00 off of your wedding.


You’ll still get the $25.00 off even if your Great, Great, Grandpa was thrown off the Mayflower, the Santa Maria or the Pina coming to America.


No proof required! Your say-so is good enough for me.



1. If you are a Pinoy/Pinay; my wife would kill me if I didn’t give you a $25.00 discount. Since she’s from Bayombong (Very Northern Philippines), she demands Pinoy/Pinay discounts. 


2. If you refer a couple, and I conduct their wedding, you will be sent a check for $25.00.
