FAQ


What kind of ceremonies do you perform?
I am an experienced ordained non-denominational minister who has officiated ceremonies of all types all over the country, including weddings, christenings/births, vow renewals, commitment ceremonies and home blessings. Check to see if I am available on your date via email at Rev. Mildred@GreenCountryCeremonies.com or by phone at (918) 269-0010.

What other services do you provide?
In addition to officiating your special event, I can also arrange to provide services that complement your special day, including premarital education. I also give your photographer and/or videographer an outline of the ceremony, so they can capture all the special touches we build in.

Where are you located?
I am located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but I have performed ceremonies all over Northeastern Oklahoma and as far away as Dallas, Texas, Atlanta, Georgia and Santa Fe, New Mexico. The expense for travel outside Tulsa County is typically covered by the client, so please contact me to discuss your desired location.

Where can my ceremony be performed?
You can choose any site you like for your ceremony, indoors or outdoors. My experience with non-traditional sites as well as traditional locations will ensure that everything is coordinated and goes smoothly. See the Links page for location ideas in Northeastern Oklahoma.

Is it OK if we are not affiliated with a church?
Of course! Many people are not connected with a church or religion and don't know where to turn when looking for someone to officiate at a ceremony. I would be delighted to be your minister and to officiate at your special event, whatever your background.

How far in advance do we need to reserve your services?
My services are reserved on a first come, first-served basis, so please contact me as soon as possible after you determine the date and time of your ceremony (for weddings, please contact me after you have secured the wedding site with a firm date and time).

What do you charge?
My fees vary depending on the services I provide, and start at $100 for simple home blessings, christenings and the like. My fee for a custom-designed, unique wedding service, including a one-hour rehearsal is $350. Fees range upwards for additional or more complex services. I am available for initial meetings and by telephone and e-mail at no charge. See the Weddings page for more details on wedding-related services and pricing. If you have special circumstances that prevent you from affording these fees, please contact me to discuss special arrangements.

How do we book you as our minister?
Call or email me and we can meet either in person or over the phone for an initial interview, where we can spend some time getting to know each other. After that, I will give you a written proposal, which details everything I will do for you as your ceremonial minister. Once you review the proposal, a deposit of $50 locks in the date and time I will perform your ceremony.

Why should we choose you as the officiant for our ceremony?
Many people choose me because:

  • I welcome you and honor your highest values, regardless of your religious preferences.
  • I create unforgettable ceremonies that warm hearts forever after.
  • I take the time to get to know you and honor all those you love within your ceremony.
  • I love to perform ceremonies in different locations with special features that rise beyond the ordinary.
  • I love to do weddings, vow renewals and commitment ceremonies.
  • I love to help children get the best start in life with christenings or dedications.
  • I also bless every inch of a home to the highest good, so that those who enter your doorway are uplifted.

In summary, I hope you choose me because I take the time and devote the energy to give you the ceremony you so richly deserve.
