Wedding at the Minnesota History Center



At Our Initial Meeting

When we meet, we will review all elements of the wedding ceremony you envision: vows, rings, readings, music, everything--including your family considerations, location characteristics, recommendations for top-notch wedding vendors, and everything else involved in planning your unique wedding.  
We will discuss your feelings and beliefs, and any unique circumstances.  I will always respect your wishes and feelings, and together, we will customize your ceremony.
Once you’ve reserved my services, I will get right to work on your ceremony scripting, writing up everything that we worked on at our meeting.

Customized ceremony scripting
Within 7 to 14 days, you will receive the entire customized wedding ceremony scripting for your review. Your script will be a clear, well-organized document, fully detailed and complete. This writing out of the scripting for your review is especially important and unique to my services. I undertake this effort so that you will always know exactly what to expect. With this complete scripting in hand, you will feel secure and confident knowing that your wedding ceremony is personalized and customized to reflect your beliefs, values, and wishes.

Revisions
Once you receive your scripting, you can go through it at your leisure to make sure that everything is exactly how you want it. We will work together in the coming months to make it absolutely perfect. If there are changes, just let me know and I will send you a newly revised scripting, so we’re always on the same page.

Your Marriage License
Your Minnesota marriage license administration will be taken care of by me so you can concentrate on more important things, like enjoying your big weekend.

Your Wedding Rehearsal
By this point, you’ll have the complete and final scripting, with any and all changes you requested. We will rehearse the service at the location of your choice, and you will have the security of knowing that your wedding party, family, and everyone else is completely comfortable and confident.

Your Wedding Day
After the rehearsal, you will be completely prepared and ready for your wedding. You won’t have to be in charge of anything—if anyone asks you for anything, from the florist to the caterer to a member of your family or your wedding party, you can answer with confidence, “Talk to Pastor Tomkin.” You can be completely in the moment, enjoying your big day.
