The wedding chapel. It sounds like Vegas! Let’s go on down to the Chapel of Love! I don’t have a chapel. Having a physical chapel would add to the overhead of my business and it would make me have to charge couples more money to get married. I’m dedicated to keeping the simple act of becoming legally married affordable so I’ve chosen not to add any overhead to my business I don’t need. I do believe that wherever I marry you it can be a romantic experience if you choose for it to be. The world can be a chapel without walls. Incidentally, there are couples who choose to elope in Indy instead of Vegas. It's cheaper and easier!!
I offer a wide array of affordable wedding options. The least expensive being just for the two people being married. For a fee of $40 I can marry you in my home. This $40 option is probably the least expensive professional wedding officiant service in the Indianapolis area. It's the perfect budget wedding and over 1000 couples have been married in my home. I am obligated by law, and in accordance with Fisher’s City Ordinance to limit the number of people in my home for business. If you bring guests to your Simple Ceremony in my home they will be required to stay outside. You may have had friends or know people who have had larger weddings in my home in the past. I was unaware of the ordinance when I first started. I’ve been advised by the City of the ordinance and honor and obey it. The State of Indiana does not require witnesses in order to get married. If you want more people to watch you get married I offer other services that are still very competitively priced.
I offer a Get Married at the Courthouse option that is still a quick wedding but because it’s outside anyone can come and watch you get married. In public spaces we can’t stop traffic or set up chairs or music or anything like that. We can, gather and perform a simple wedding ceremony You will need to keep in mind that if it rains, I can still perform the service, however going inside a building is no longer a public place. For the three of us to sit down and sign your marriage license and make your marriage legal, that’s not a problem in a cafe or a restaurant right near the courthouse. If 10 or 20 of your closest friends and family want to join you then that is a totally different story. The Get Married at the Courthouse option is really just a cost effective service that serves as an alternative to other downtown options that perform the service to just legally marry you. I charge $60 for this option. There are other wedding officiants with offices downtown that charge right around $100. I offer this option to marry you for less. The other officiants downtown may only allow the two of you or up to 10 people inside their office. We are ordained ministers but we still have to follow building codes and city ordinances that limit how we can do business and where we can do business. If it rains and you would like me to marry you in another indoor place the appropriate fee will be charged for the service.
If you have a chapel picked out or have created your own chapel - either in your backyard, or an area that you have reserved or rented, I’m happy to marry you there. My fee to marry you either in your home or in a rented place for a small, quick wedding - which would be considered appropriate to a chapel wedding - the fee is $150 in the Indianapolis area. I’m happy to perform romantic, as well as spiritual or christian weddings.
When I think Wedding Chapel in Indy, I think of the romance of a quick elopement. I offer a great option called the Whirlwind Elopement. For $120 I can marry you at any of Indy's landmarks or monuments. Monument Circle, The War Memorial, along the canal, The Love Statue at the IMA. These are great places to elope. Just a quick ceremony is a lovely, memorable place. It's a great option if you want to invite friends and family but don't want to throw a big wedding or have a formal ceremony.
