Just feel like ranting for a moment. A good friend of mine put my FI and I in touch with a rabbi who she raved about, and thought would be a good match for us and our wedding. We don't have a spiritual home or belong to a synagogue. We met with the rabbi, who really does match us and has some good ideas and whatnot. The fee would include 3 meetings before the wedding. The fee was $1,500. I kid you not. Seriously??
I'm not going crazy. That's a really high amount for an officiant, right??
