Helpful Wedding Ceremony Services
My goal is to provide you personalized meaningful wedding ceremony services at affordable rates within the Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington, metro areas.
You may find a sample ceremony that you like as is, or that we can customize to you, or to 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.
The conference room in my Portland office building can be used for weddings with up to 6-8 guests, dependent on availability.
Your wedding day is one of the most important moments of your life. To help capture the meaning of this moment, your ceremony can be customized to reflect your love, your beliefs, your family, your relationship.
We can meet in person, over Skype, or chat on the phone 503-522-7303 to discuss your ideas and wishes.
Following your ceremony, I will mail your license to the county.
Together, we will walk through each step of the marriage process. I can assist in suggesting photographers, D.J.’s and/or florists.
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 your coordinator, photographer and DJ, as well as complete your license paperwork.
For all weddings, I do require at least 24 to 48 hours’ notice.
My focus is to provide you with a meaningful ceremony.
A License signing with simple exchange of vows (couple, their witnesses and perhaps another couple or their children) at either of my office locations, or perhaps a local location of your choice within 30 miles of Portland Metro is $65.00.
An Elopement (the couple, their witnesses and maximum 10 guests), in which the ceremony is chosen from those on my website, with slight edits and some personalization, and which is located within 30 miles of the Portland/Vancouver Metro Area is $85. Much more affordable and personal than a courthouse wedding!
Standard Wedding Ceremony within 40 miles of the Portland/Vancouver Metro Area is $185.
Standard Wedding Ceremony and attendance at your Rehearsal is $235.00
This includes meeting in person, or a phone call, or perhaps Skype, to learn your wishes for your ceremony, and to learn more about you as a couple.
We may begin with one of my sample ceremonies and then create from there a ceremony customized and personal to you. Or you may have found a ceremony or wording that you wish to incorporate. As each ceremony becomes unique onto its own, as we talk there may be wordings or samples of other recent weddings that we can look at as well. I will then assist in composing a draft for you to review. And after perhaps another draft or meeting we should have our final copy!
Should you wish me to assist with the walk through of your rehearsal, I will help to organize your bridal party, review the timing, answer any questions, this is also a time we can address any needed changes.
If you would like to include the marriage of additional couples into your ceremony, we can make this happen! Each couple recites their own vows, and exchanges rings.
When the wedding venue is more than 40 miles from Portland or Vancouver, there may be an additional mileage fee.
