How much to pay rabbi for wedding?

We got married a couple weeks ago.

When we first started working with the rabbi, he worked at a synagogue, which we decided to join. About six months before our wedding, he left the synagogue and now is essentially independent. Because he initially worked at the synagogue, we never discussed compensation, and he isn’t asking for any, but we’d like to pay something. We met 8-10 times for premarital counseling and the ceremony was about 15 minutes from his house, 3 were after he left the synagogue.

MCOL area. We are not going to ask him, I don’t think he’d be comfortable giving an honest answer.

Thanks!
