About You


Because I perform ceremonies in Portland, Oregon; Vancouver, Washington; the Columbia River Gorge; the Willamette Valley and the Oregon Coast, 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.

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 Funeral & Memorial 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!
