The Knot Tyer Wedding Ministers
You are having a Real Wedding, We are Real Ministers
5 Simple Steps To The Wedding DAY & Pricing!
Step 1: REACH OUT: Reach out to Scott and Scott will check his calendar for availability then he will contact you. If he is not available he has highly trained REAL Ministers with years of experience who work with him and will line you up with another Minister you will LOVE!
Step 2: THE KNOT TYER WEDDING PACKAGE: You will be emailed The Knot Tyer Wedding Package, full of info which will help you both to easily create a personal wedding ceremony of your own; that is, if you choose to do so or after meeting with you both, Scott will create a ceremony for you both to consider that you both can tweak to your liking using this package. You will truly love this package!
Step 3: TIME TO VISIT: Set up a get-to-know each other meeting through Skype, Face Time, over the phone or meet in person at a coffee shop. It is important to Scott that you both feel very comfortable about the one who will be your Wedding Minister / Officiant. During this meeting Scott will be able to take some notes to later create a ceremony for you both to consider and tweak to your liking. Scott wants to make sure all of your wishes come true for your wedding ceremony and wedding day!
Step 4: SEND DEPOSIT: As soon as you feel comfortable with Scott, send a deposit ($150.00) to reserve your date. Venmo (@Scott-Payne-6) also Cash, Check or Money Order.
Step 5: GIVE LICENSE & REMAINDER FEE: On the wedding day give Scott the marriage license with the remainder amount due or you can send this before the wedding day.
Please Note: Something VERY IMPORTANT to consider. In regards to your possible rehearsal: A venue (wedding location) may have a wedding the evening of your rehearsal. It is truly best, if at all possible, to have your rehearsal at 10:00 or 11:00 a.m. Many venues will schedule you for an evening rehearsal as long as that time slot does not fill with another wedding. Then, as the day approaches, they may, and most likely will, fill that time slot with another wedding and couples are forced to change plans to a morning rehearsal after all. This happens very FREQUENTLY. I truly care and want both of your days to be amazing, whether I am there or not!
Please note: MOST OF THE TIME it is not necessary for Scott to be at the rehearsal, especially if there is a Coordinator present, so this can save you money. Some other Officiants try to make extra money this way and make this a big deal. Now, if you just want Scott at the rehearsal for peace of mind and he is available, he will be there and will absolutely honor your wishes. The rehearsal is really for the wedding party to know how to walk in (processional) where to stand, and how to walk out (recessional). Scott already knows what he will be doing because he will have the ceremony he created with you both.
A Note from Scott:
What I want you both to know about my Ministers and me. We work closely with our couples, and try our best to create a ceremony that reflects their combined hearts. I have developed a package with 48 attachments that the couple never have to look at or can totally consume to their liking. When we meet with a couple virtually or in person, we get to know each couple and make notes and, with their permission, create a ceremony for them to consider and tweak to their liking, using our package and from other places until everything is just the way they want it to be. We do this in an expeditious way for the couple so they can be as involved as they want but it won't take too much of their valuable time. The end product is a ceremony they will cherish for the rest of their lives. We really are successful at what we do because we took the time to develop a system that comes from our hearts to your combined hearts! In the end, each couple will have a cherished ceremony, a long lasting relationship with their Wedding Minister and a sincere and professionally performed ceremony by their friend, their Minister, on their wedding day to exemplify the couple's personality and wishes. You both and your possible guests will be touched by your personalized ceremony! To God's Glory and for the benefit of each of our amazing couples, we are proactively the best at what we do and our reviews and awards reflect this.
Thank You So Much For Your Consideration!
6 Pricing Packages to Choose from with No Hidden Fees
PLUS a FREE Non-Venue with an amazing view for Consideration!
A standard fee for a Wedding Minister / Officiant usually ranges from $500 to $800. My pricing is on the lower side to help everyone to the best of my ability. Some Wedding Ministers / Officiants charge more for add-ons such as custom ceremony scripts, I do not charge extra for services like these.
All Pricing includes custom ceremony and license processing!
Because we truly care, PLEASE be advised: Almost all officiants are not Ministers and some officiants do have HIDDEN fees and ulterior motives, like not showing you what they charge until you reach out to them or high mileage rates or hidden drive time rates or show you a RANGE OF PRICE (between this and that) instead of specifics and when they meet with you, charge you the highest price possible or try to officiate your wedding so they can sell you something else. None of those who practice these types of cons are real Ministers. Scott and his Ministers are REAL MINISTERS! We have your best interests at heart and also need to support our families in what we do as everyone in the world does. We want you to know everything UPFRONT so all pricing is laid out below.

Hi, my name is Scott Payne, I am a Minister and have been now for 35 years and I officiate LOTS of weddings each year all over the Texas Hill Country. My beautiful wife of 35 years, Anna & I have decided, for a limited time, to invite couples to our 30 acre ranch to have their wedding. As you will see, and it has been said by our guests, "This is one of the most beautiful places and views on earth". Many $7000 to $10,000 thousand dollar venues wish they had this view. I know because they have said so. Please understand, this is by invitation only but you can reach out to us for an invite to have your wedding here and we will let you know of our availability and send pictures. We LOVE God, who invented marriage, We LOVE people and we LOVE, LOVE! This is an amazing place to become husband & wife! We look forward to hearing from you! Most Sincerely, Scott & Anna and Family.
