I too am an ordained minister and performed 9 weddings at Burning Man last year. It was a wonderful experience. None of the couples that I married cared about or wanted a "legal" wedding, though I did attend one wedding in 2004 that WAS a legal BM wedding. As for how I went about it... I contacted the BORG and also the WHO WHEN WHERE and got myself listed and told people how to find me.. and they just started showing up! I had no idea it would be so popular, and I was a caught a bit off guard at first. They ceremonies were simple and short, and very very meaningful to both me and the particpants. I said a few things, but I had my couples do most of the talking, as that's the way I think it should be at a wedding. As for the full service package... well, kudos to you if you can pull it off! I didn't have the resources to be able to gift that extravagant of a ceremony, but if you can, it's a beautiful thing. Feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance to you!

I'm thinking of offering a full service package, including champagne toast and limo (okay, pedi-cab) transport as a gift!
