1. Introduction: What's your story?
Welcome! My name is Bretta Thompson. I am the owner of Just the Two of Officiant Services. I started my business in 2012 and since that time I have added 4 officiants and a additional Day of coordinator/planner to my team. We started out strictly officiating weddings and moved into Day of Coordination/Planning in 2014. It's been such a amazing experience to work with over 850 couples in almost 10 years.
We work with couples every step of the way. From attending and running rehearsals, to custom script creating included with every officiant package no matter how small, we ensure you are part of the decision making process 100% of the way. We travel all over Central Indiana from Greenwood to Lebanon, to Anderson, Bloomington, Muncie, Fishers, Greencastle to Columbus. We have a contract with every couple and low deposits to secure your date. With over 800 thrilled couples and experienced Officiants and Planners we have the knowledge you deserve for the most important day of your life.
2. What's your experience as a wedding officiant? How many weddings have your officiated?
I have personally officiated over 700 weddings myself. Since Adding my team members we have collectively united and worked with over 850 couples.
3. How far in advance do couples need to secure your services?
I have couples secure us as far out as 18 months and as short as a few weeks.
4. How would you describe your officiant style?
A officiant needs to make their couples feel like they have been friends for years! We always have a meeting in person or virtually (due to Covid restrictions) where we allow the couple to ask as many questions as they need. We are FUN! We know it's a very important day and we know that every couple has their own style. That's why a meeting is so vital so that a couple can ensure that the person they are choosing is the right fit. We have years upon years of experience in this industry and we take it very seriously. If a couple wants a Classic, traditional wedding then we make sure that happens. If they want a fun, upbeat, dancing the aisle wedding (yes we have done this quite a few times) then we put on our best dancing shoes!
5. What are your fees for officiating a wedding?
Our fee's are simple: Provide a location and whether you need us at the rehearsal. They are based up on location only not the size of the wedding. Typically our standard fee is anywhere from $250-400, depending on location and whether you need us at the rehearsal. Smaller, elopement style weddings start at $100 and can go up to $300 depending again, on location. Typically a downtown Indianapolis elopement with no rehearsal is $125.00.
6. What do you wear when you officiate a wedding?
We dress very professionally. We will usually wear a dress (female officiants) or a Pant Suit with jacket if outdoors and weather is cooler. Our Male officiants always wear a dark suit, lighter colored dress shirt and tie. If we are asked to dress more casual we accommodate our couples request. I have been asked to wear Denim jeans, cowboy boots and a cowboy hat for a fun festive Farm wedding! I have also performed themed weddings like Alice in Wonderland and Star Wars! We LOVE themed weddings!
7. How many pre-wedding sessions will the couple need to have with you?
Typically for a officiant only package we will have a phone call to see if they are interested in setting up a In person or Virtual meeting. At that meeting we go over the contract, cost, deposit and discuss the details of the wedding so that we can start the script creation process. If they need us at the rehearsal we will attend as well and we help to time, coordinate the wedding party as well.
8. Will you be able to create a personalized ceremony?
YES! We feel that every couple should have a customized script that reflects their beliefs and their day! We NEVER just create a script without having full approval from the couple. We work closely to ensure you have the script that you dreamed of. This isn't our day, it's YOURS! And we make sure you have no regrets!
9. Are you available to travel if needed?
Absolutely. We travel all over Central Indiana. We to Bloomington, Nashville, In, Columbus, In, Fishers, Anderson, Muncie, Lebanon, Greencastle, Typically we will travel up to 90 minutes away from Greenwood, Indiana.
10. What is your cancellation and/or refund policy?
We ask that if you have to cancel your wedding to give us 120 days notice. The Deposit ($75) is non refundable. It secures your date and time.
If we receive a cancellation less than 120 days out the couple is responsible for full payment of the contract.
We do have a policy that if you need Reschedule your wedding we are happy to transfer the deposit you paid on the original contract to your new date.
