PRE-MARRIAGE COUNSELING:
Because it is our greatest desire to help prepare and equip you for a fulfilling, life-long marriage, we require all couples being married by an Amplify Church pastor to attend a minimum of 3 pre-marriage counseling sessions with a designated Amplify Church mentor couple. Mentor couples are members of Amplify who have had successful, faith-based marriages of 10 years or more. Pre-marriage counseling involves a fee which is detailed in the FEES section below.

FEES:

Deposit:
A $100 deposit is due when submitting the Wedding Application Form. This fee is fully refundable a) if your requested date is unavailable, or b) up until the date of your first pre-marriage counseling session.

Wedding Fee: This fee covers the cost of pre-marriage counseling, Wedding Coordinator services, a sound technician, cleaning and maintenance of our facilities before and after your ceremony, set up and tear down of the room, and communion, if desired.

Pittsburgh East Campus: $500   |   City Campus: $500   |   Indiana Campus: $500

Officiating Pastor Fee: $200

Cleaning/Maintenance Fee:
If the facility is not left in proper condition, an additional fee may apply.

Musicians Honorarium:
Procuring musicians and vocalists is the sole responsibility of the couple and honorariums per performer are at your discretion.

ABOUT OFF-SITE WEDDINGS:
If you'd like to have a member of the Amplify Pastoral Staff officiate your wedding at an off-site location, the following fees and requirements apply:

Pre-Marriage Counseling Fee:  $200

Ceremonial Assistant: For off-site wedding ceremonies performed by an Amplify pastor, we require that the couple have a person assigned as a Ceremonial Assistant. This person must be available for the dress rehearsal as well as the ceremony and be in charge of all details and logistics related to the ceremony (i.e. sound requirements, order of service, special elements, bridal party assistance, etc.) If you do not have a person to fill this role, a member of our Amplify Wedding Team may be available for a minimal fee of $50 to $100.
