Before Your Departure
* Propose

  (things book up fast!)
* Purchase your rings
* Contact me to confirm the availability of your date, and send
   your deposit
* If you want wedding photos, book now (check out Links)
* Invite the people you most want to attend the ceremony
   You will need a minimum of two adult witnesses
* Work with me to create your one-of-a-kind wedding ceremony
* Choose music and pack original CDs or iPod (I can bring a player)
* Draft your vows (if you’re writing your own)
* Select flowers (if desired)
* Find and pack your special attire (see Attire for suggestions)

  (see Details)
* Pack your rings
* Travel safely to the Black Hills!

Upon Arrival
* Purchase license (wedding must occur within 20 days of issue)
* Visit ceremony location (see Locations)
* Contact me for final planning

On the Big Day
* Bring the following:
   License, rings, witnesses, “special touches,” remainder
   of my fee, camera, special attire, music, flowers, “Just Married”
   decorations for your bike, etc.
* Plan to arrive 10 to 15 minutes early so we can meet, go over
   any questions, find the perfect spot for photos and the ceremony,    get comfortable, etc.

After the Wedding
* You may return the signed and completed marriage license to the
   courthouse yourselves (which will speed the process of getting
   your notarized marriage certificate). Or I will mail it within one
   or two business days, and you may request it later. This is NOT
   automatically made to you. Note: The license MUST be returned
   within 10 days or the marriage isn’t valid.
* Ride the Hills in your special attire, telling everyone that you are
   newlyweds. You will be celebrated everywhere you go!
* Relax and enjoy the “honeymoon” part of your trip!
* Travel safely home
* Share photos with me. I may use them on this website!
* Post a review on Google+ about your experience (click on the
   pencil on my Google+ page)



Many thanks for everything – it was exactly what we wanted and the wedding was beautiful. I must say that planning something from another country, especially a wedding as we did – at the last moment - was really taking a chance, but we were very lucky we came across you!
