Wedding Ceremony Services

My wish is to provide you a personalized meaningful wedding ceremony at an affordable rate within the Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington, metro areas.    It is your wedding ceremony, it should be how you wish it to be. 

You may find a sample ceremony that you like as is, or that we can personalize, or use as a springboard for one unique to you. You may have readings, poems, or wordings you would like included. 

I love chatting with couples to find ways to bring their dreams and wishes to reality.

Listed below are my current fees. I am always happy to give individual quotes based on your wishes, location, etc.

We may begin with one of my sample ceremonies or ideas that you have collected. Then begin weaving in perhaps activities you share or are passionate about, important moments you wish included.

We may meet in person, over the phone, or perhaps a video call. This a chance for me to learn about you as individuals, as well as you as a couple as well as, for you to learn about me.

It is a time for you ask me questions, to outline what your wishes are for your ceremony. Both what you want and what you don't want.

From this information a customized wedding ceremony begins to come alive. Taking on a unique personality of its own. Truly yours.

The day of your wedding, I am at your venue 30 minutes prior to your ceremony start time, to go over any last minute items, check in with each of you, your coordinator, photographer and DJ, as well as complete your license paperwork.

Following your ceremony, I will mail your license to the county.

For all weddings, I do ask at least 24 to 48 hours’ notice.
