"What a week my fiancé and I had, we found out that due to the circumstances of the world right now (March 2020), we had to cancel our wedding in Costa Rica only 3 days out! We decided that we would elope and have an intimate ceremony on Orcas Island, our favorite spot in Washington, if we could. We contacted Didier 3 days before we wanted to get married on Orcas to find out if he was available and would be able to accommodate a small/short ceremony in such a short time. From the onset, he heard our story, and worked with his schedule to ensure he was available and really understood our story so that he could create a special ceremony for us. He even met us in person (while remaining 6ft apart :) ) on orcas the day before the wedding for an hour to talk with us about our love for eachother, and what we wanted out of the ceremony. The ceremony was perfect, and Didier managed to create something that was tailored to us after only knowing us for less than a few hours. We absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to get married on Orcas! He is genuine, kind, and makes the entire situation as fun and comfortable as possible. We are so grateful we were able to work with him!"

spent a special week on Orcas Island enjoying the island as well the company of Didier, as well as the people he introduced us to along the way.”

“Didier is a breath of fresh air and a fantastic human being. We were so happy with the process from beginning to end.

We highly recommend Didier for all your wedding needs.” 


“If you are seeking a relaxed, creative, eclectic, and warm individual to perform

your wedding ceremony you should definitely consider Didier. My husband and I were looking for a person who would not attempt to turn our vision of an outdoor informal mountaintop ceremony into an event not harmonious with our disposition as a couple. Didier was very open to our nontraditional vows and provided thoughtful feedback to us when asked his opinion, he hiked up a trail in near freezing temperatures and, with the addition of his own personal touches…the result was an amazing and meaningful day that we often recall fondly and will

cherish for a lifetime.”


“Didier was the perfect fit for our elopement…He’s a great, honest, genuine human being, with a big heart and a real dedication to what he does. My wife and I really felt the whole process was bespoke, and not once did we ever think we were getting anything other than Didier's complete focus.”


"I had NO IDEA how special our little ceremony was going to be and my heart, mind and soul have been blown apart with love and sweetness.  I am amazed!  You provided us with an outstanding, extraordinary, ceremony.  Thank you so much!  You will forever be a huge part of my heart. Again, I didn't know what to expect, I thought it would be really simple and it was but the immensity of it was off the charts. Didier, thank you so much."


“He has a calm, confident, gentleness about him. He gave us some ideas on sites to scope, things to do, and places to eat while we'd be on the island.”


“Didier gave us a beautiful ceremony to begin our lives together. He's sensitive,

charming, and has a great sense of humor.” 


“Didier was truly amazing. From the first time we called him, he had such good

energy and made both my wife and I feel very comfortable and even more excited about our special day.”
