Introduction: I really love performing weddings! I became an Officiant to bring a personal, warm touch to the ceremony. I offer my time, experience, energy and passion to make your wedding day magical, and memorable. I have a speaker and microphone for outdoor weddings. If you need guidance, I have sample ceremonies for you to choose from. I can also help you with your vows. You can choose readings and music to enhance the day. To personalize the ceremony, beforehand, I will send you a questionnaire and then write a story about the life of your relationship. Many couples have chosen to include an add-on such as a unique Celtic tradition called a Handfasting, a sand blending ceremony or a love letter box. My weddings have been in unique settings, beaches, backyards, public parks, lighthouses and wedding venues. There have been anywhere from 4 to 200 people present. Everyone has been different and very special. As a notary public in Maine, I am allowed to perform weddings. In Massachusetts, I can request an “Officiate for a day” license and in New Hampshire, using my notary paperwork, I can request a specific license for your ceremony. There is a charge for this from the state which I will add to my fee. My fee is $300. This includes the initial consultation, continued support throughout your planning and right up until you receive your certificate. I will write the personalized story, help with vows, write the script of the ceremony and provide the braided cord if you choose the Celtic Handfasting. $50 - for being present at your rehearsal. $175 - for a simple ceremony/elopement. This price includes the initial consultation in person or by phone. Plus a simple script based on our initial conversation with no extra add-ons. Add $25 if the wedding more than 50 miles from Saco, ME no

Ann C.

Beth Koehler was our wedding officiant for our August 22, 2020 destination wedding in Maine. She was beyond our expectations and a great pleasure to work with. Beth was helpful in many ways and even dressed up in our Roaring 20's wedding theme. She did not allow the 2020 pandemic to stop her nor the rain we had on our wedding day. We cannot thank Beth enough for going above & beyond. Beth comes with our highest recommendation and a 10-star rating!

Oh Ann, what fun! The outfits, the rain, the rainbow. A very special day. Thank you for including me.

We were in a time crunch and Beth responded quickly. She was our first choice so we were very pleased that she was able to squeeze us in with such sort notice. Getting married (and I'm sure being an officiant) during a pandemic is no small feat, but she stayed in constant contact with us and was extremely accommodating. Her ceremony scripts were beautiful with so many options to choose from. We also decided to do the hand-fasting that she offers, which brought a special touch to our union. She gave us the freedom to make the ceremony our own and at the same time guided us to help make our ceremony cohesive. She was flexible and helped us feel a little more at ease on our big day. We would recommend Beth to anyone. She's a kind and respectful person and we're grateful to have had her be a part of our experience.

We had hired Beth before Covid hit. When we decided to continue with our wedding plans Beth was there and able to accommodate us. Without ever meeting either myself or my husband, Beth was able to piece together a wonderful history of our lives together. The ceremony was funny, unique and exactly what we were looking for. Beth was able to help two people who had no idea what they were doing! Our families both commented on how they had never seen a ceremony like ours. We would recommend her for any special occasion.

Thank you so much for accompanying us on our special day and being the one to seal the deal of our union. The ceremony was magical, unique, and fun, and we got a lot of positive feedback from our guests about it! It was structured and yet compact, not overly long or too quick. It kept the interest of everyone (well except for maybe the kids...) and you did such a splendid job telling our story as if you were watching it like a movie. My goal was to keep the guests as entertained as Daniel and I, as much as possible, to make them laugh and to make them cry. We were able to accomplish all of that with your help. I am so thrilled that Melissa recommended you. I wasn’t sure what to expect but because it’s Melissa I knew I could hope for wonderful things. I have no regrets choosing you! Thank you for continuing to be great by helping us understand the ceremonial process, sharing your research of the native Hawaiian gatherings, as well as how to go about changing my last name officially. You made it very easy for us and we appreciate you!

Beth officiated my husband and my elopement and we were extremely grateful for her services. She was kind, courteous, calming, and very flexible with our non traditional plans to wed. She even suggested a beautiful spot to elope where it was private, beautiful, and meaningful to us. We had to cancel our original elopement date last minute and Beth was kind enough t if it is in almost immediately following when our schedules allowed. She was so good natured, non intrusive, non overbearing and really listened to what we wanted out of a ceremony-and then she delivered just that...a perfect elopement ceremony, in a beautiful location, tailored just for our unique tastes. We couldn’t be happier with our luck to have found Beth to start off our lives together:)

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    As a Notary Public in Maine, I am allowed to perform weddings. I have performed many weddings in both Maine and Mass and have enjoyed every one! I would need enough time to apply for a special one day license if the wedding is in Massachusetts or New Hampshire. The fee for the license is $25.
