  • What is important to you as a couple for your wedding and your ceremony?
  • Where do you picture the setting?  (Inside? Outside?)
  • How big will your wedding be?
  • How involved do you want to be in the creation of your ceremony?


-------------

If you’re thinking of coming to the San Juan Islands for a wedding, you will be pleased with picturesque settings that are among the most beautiful places in the world!

-------------


Whatever size or style of wedding you choose, it is the careful, thoughtful planning and the atmosphere that makes it a true success. 


  • I like to gather from conversations (face-to-face, Skype, FaceTime, phone) and e-mails how couples enjoy sharing their time together and what they admire about each other. Then I weave this into the ceremony so that it is personal and meaningful. The process is comfortable and fun. 
  • Some couples choose not to see the ceremony until it actually happens; others like to see the completed version with various degrees of input, confident that we have connected and that everything is to their liking.
  • By listening and paying attention to details, it is my pleasure to help dreams come true and create a personalized ceremony .
  • A wedding ceremony is not only intended for couples who are being married–it is for everyone who is witnessing the wedding.  
  • I enjoy helping people feel at ease. What a pleasure when the wedding party can feel confident and relaxed knowing the ceremony will be a success. What a pleasure to hear laughter from brides, grooms, and their guests.
  • The wedding is a culmination of a relationship that is built by going deep and yet light and joyous.
  • I love meeting children, elders, family, and friends, knowing how important a wedding day is in people’s lives. 
  • It is a happy day when guests of the wedding couple shake my hand and offer kind words of joy for the ceremony they just witnessed.

-------------


Elopements to small weddings, Do-it-Yourself venues to large weddings at beautiful resorts, your wedding will be unique because of a personal ceremony and  the uniqueness of your relationship.

-------------


  • Let's discuss which picturesque location best suits you and your guests.
  • Your guests are going to home wondering what kind of dream vacation they just experienced!

-------------


Love comes in many forms. It is like the sun—it shines on all regardless of race, sexuality, gender, religion, or beliefs. Same sex weddings are celebrated.

-------------


I would be honored to be your wedding officiant.

  • A rehearsal is optional. It can help everyone feel at ease and valued in their role at the wedding.
  • We can meet by phone, Facetime, Skype, or perhaps for coffee or a meal, maybe a walk around a mountain lake and see if I can meet your wedding needs. We can send e-mails back and forth to see if you would like to offer the honor of officiating your wedding.

  • The San Juan Islands have friendly and talented individuals who are passionate about what they do. Big or small, medium or an elopement, our wedding industry will serve you well.
  • Orcas Island, on summer weekends, have weddings several weddings ranging from the picturesque surroundings at Rosario, the sounds of the water during silent moments on the patio of the Odd Fellows Hall, the beautiful garden at the Outlook Inn,, the quaint atmosphere by the ferry landing at the Orcas Hotel, Moran ELC, where groups can rent out the entire place and have their lodging needs met in one fell swoop; the intimacy of the Victorian Valley Chapel, sounds of cows enjoying a summer day as part of the soundscape of farm weddings. I’ve enjoyed showing up at homes with stunning views to officiate weddings that are straight out of National Geographic, and at outside locations in Moran State Park, such as the top ofl Mt. Constitution, by a waterfall, or tucked away by Mountain Lake. One of my favorite elopement or small wedding sites is Little Summit. The views are epic!
  • San Juan Island includes many picturesque settings such as Roche Harbor, where their staff defines quality, the Tucker House, where I have had the pleasure to officiate several elopements, Lime Kiln (where whales came out for a celebration after the vows); so many places in Friday Harbor. 
  • Lopez Island: I think back on the sounds of a bagpipe echoing at Watmough Bay and the charming feel of weddings on Lopez.
  • If you would like to be married on the mainland, I am available for weddings in Anacortes, Mt. Vernon, La Conner, Burlington, Seattle, and surrounding Puget Sound area. There is an extra $100 cost for ferries and time. 
  • I am available for destination weddings and can do the necessary paperwork to be licensed at your destination wedding location.

-------------


Beyond providing a ceremony that will be a valuable keepsake for the rest of your lives, I am available to help with logistics, such as help with:


  • your marriage license 
  • where to get flowers
  • best lodging 
  • transportation 
  • Recreational opportunities for your guest
  • Best hikes and local knowledge of the islands
