About You

Because I officiate many ceremonies in Portland, Oregon; Vancouver, Washington; the Columbia River Gorge; the Willamette Valley; Oregon Coast and all the way up to Port Townsend and Seattle, Washington my clients LOVE the Pacific Northwest first and foremost!  They live here—or they choose to come here for their destination wedding—because they are attracted to the lifestyle and natural beauty that stems from the unique culture and bounty of this spectacular region.


But, because the world is a fascinating place with lots of fabulous people in love, I frequently fly across the country to marry lovers whenever and wherever I am invited!  From the West Coast to the East Coast, Oregon to Virginia, and everywhere in between and beyond.  Wherever YOU are, I am delighted to marry you to the love of your life.

What My Clients Value

My clients are creative, innovative, and personally and professionally motivated. They have a passion for slow, sustainable, handcrafted food; great wine; and the beautiful mountains, rivers, beaches and communities that nurture us.


My clients follow their own drummer, and they celebrate with enthusiasm and distinctive personal style. Friendly, fun and personable, they prefer quality over quantity, and they welcome differences. They are inclusive rather than exclusive.  AND they seek professionalism, respect and excellent value and service in equal measure.


My clients tend to see themselves as spiritual rather than religious, and they are deeply loving and committed in their relationships.


Above all, my clients know that what is most important in a ceremony is the opportunity to gather together with family and friends to celebrate the special moments in their lives with the people they love.

Why Do My Clients Choose Me?

My clients choose me as their Professional Wedding Officiant, Certified Life-Cycle™ Celebrant and Ceremony Specialist because my only goal is to provide them with a beautiful, unforgettable, custom-crafted ceremony just for them.


Because I understand there are as many kinds of ceremonies as there are ways to express love for one another,  my clients know they can have their ceremony any way they want—from formal and traditional to casual and contemporary, from big and wild to small and intimate—wherever they want and at any time of the day or night!
