“We knew within 10 minutes of meeting Heidi, that she was the officiant for us! She was positive and enthusiastic from the beginning. She listened to our story carefully and worked with us to create a beautiful ceremony that so many of our guests commented on. She made suggestions that showed she had genuinely listened to what we wanted from our ceremony, and you can tell that she does this because she enjoys it. The writing, editing and delivery of our ceremony was heartfelt, and she was intrinsic to setting the relaxed and welcoming mood we wanted to achieve for our wedding day.”
Weddings for All Couples
You are unique, as a couple and as individuals. As a Wedding Officiant, I know that every element of your wedding ceremony should reflect how special you are, and how your lives are woven together with your family and friends.
I will work with you to create the ceremony your have always dreamed of. Together, we will tell your love story. Write your vows. Select personalized rituals, readings, and music. Honor your traditions and heritage.
The first step is a phone consultation, followed by a no-cost, face-to-face meeting, where we can brainstorm ideas for your ceremony. What mood and style, music and words, best express your love? We’ll review readings and resources that inspire you. Simple, lightly-customized ceremonies generally start around $495, and fully customized ceremonies around $695. I am legally recognized to officiate at weddings in Oregon and Washington.
As your Wedding Celebrant, I will:
Listen to you and learn your love story.
Write and conduct a joyful, authentic ceremony that includes traditions, music and other elements that are meaningful to you.
Guide you in writing your own vows (if you’d like me to), helping you find exactly the right words to express your feelings.
Review the ceremony script with you so that you are completely happy with the final product.
Advise you on organizing the processional, stage set-up, sound system and other details as desired.
Coordinate with wedding vendors as needed – such as photographer, musicians, sound and video tech, event planner, florist, venue manager – to make sure that the ceremony goes smoothly.
Officiate at the rehearsal (or provide a complete blueprint for a rehearsal, depending on availability).
Arrive an hour in advance on the wedding day, to attend to set-up and any last-minute issues.
File all paperwork required by the legal jurisdiction where the wedding takes place.

This includes Beaverton, Tigard, Tualatin, Hillsboro, St. Helens, Hood River, Clackamas, Gresham, Sandy, Boring, Salem, Newberg, Sherwood, Canby, Dundee, McMinnville, Carlton, Yamhill.
