Travel and Time Expenses

There is no charge for travel expenses such as mileage and accommodations as Moosehead Lake is a home to Rev. Manning.

That said, the rates above are based on basic pre-wedding ceremony coordination and officiating for weddings that take place on and around Moosehead Lake in easily accessible locations. Should you wish to recite your vows on the top of Mount Kineo, or on a canoe in the middle of Moosehead Lake, or at a small pond reachable after traveling two hours on a 4-wheeler, additional fees may apply 🙂 This can be determined during your initial conversation.
