Should you require a rehearsal, it is an additional $200.00 except for Hatteras Island which is an additional $250.00.  However, I do often find a rehearsal is not necessary because of our casual location.  You may have a capable guest that excels at organizational skills that would be a perfect candidate to supervise the ceremony.  Perhaps this Order of Procession would help you make that decision.

Order of Processional and Recessional

Brides family is seated on the left and the grooms is seated on the right ( from the back of the room) or this could also be in a standing situation.

The Processional

• Grooms Grandmother and Grandfather/ Brides Grandmother and Grandfather
• Grooms mother and father( if not best man)
• Brides mother and father ( if not giving the bride away)
• Minister and Groom (Best man could also enter at this time and other groomsmen if they are not escorting the bridesmaids).
• Bridesmaids
• Ring Bearer -or he could enter with the minister, groom and groomsmen
• Flower Girl
• Bride and father

The Recessional

• Bride and Groom
• Flower Girl and Ring Bearer
• Groomsmen and Bridesmaids
• Mother and Father of the Bride
• Mother and Father of the Groom
• Brides Grandmother/ Grandfather
• Grooms Grandmother/ Grandfather
• Minister

If you are hiring a Day-Of Wedding Planner, they usually conduct the rehearsal and there would be no need for me to be present.


A ½ deposit will be required within 5 days of booking the ceremony.  The balance is due 3 weeks before the ceremony.  A check, or cash, will be fine.  I do not accept credit cards.
