Rehearsals

Please Note: The wedding rehearsal is NOT included in the standard wedding fee.

Typically, necessary information is communicated prior to the ceremony through email and other means of contact, and this is perfectly sufficient. Terry Muska will arrive early on the day of the wedding service to check on any last minute directions or changes.

If attendance at the rehearsal is felt to be necessary (and if the date on the calendar is clear) the amount of the normal fee will double.

Please advise well in advance if you wish to exercise this option.

Thank you.
