Introduction: My Credentials: Legally State Registered-136780798. Director and Owner - Willamette Marriage Ministries. Ordained Minister – ULC Marriage Director – ULC State Notarial Officer - Oregon Chaplain Work – United States Army. My many years serving as an officiant, in addition to my above-listed credentials, means that I fully understand the legal instruments associated with marriage documentation and have years of experience in the officiating business. Before scheduling, please make sure that you meet the following criteria: Specializing in Intimate Wedding Celebrations, 20 or fewer guests. GeneralService Area: $120.00 Albany Eugene Lebanon Salem Sweet Home Outside of General Service area or expedited services: $180.00 + mileage. Depending on actual distance, milage may be waived, charged one way only, or discounted. Scheduling Timetable. Monday thru Friday After 5:00 PM Saturday and Sundays 10:00 AM – 8:00 PM I never lose focus that the event is about you; I will work with you and tailor the event to your specific requirements; no two ceremonies are ever the same. Together we build memories. Willamette Marriage Ministries was founded in 2014 out of a need to offer prospective wedding couples an alternative to the more traditional church-style wedding and provide wedding services at a truly affordable price. Thank you so much for considering my services in officiating your most important day, your wedding day. You can rest assured that you will be working with one of the most experienced officiants in the market. In addition to officiating your ceremony, I am also a wedding director, which means that if needed, I can also direct all aspects of your wedding rehearsal, giving you a truly amazing and memorable event for both you and your guests. Most officiants do not fully understand the process, often costing the couples unnecessary hardships caused when the county or State rejects the document due to an error caused by the officiant. I have the fairest pricing in the market; my base price is only $120.00 inside of my service area.

Christopher A.

Wedding Officiant

Sent out a request for an officiant, he responded very quickly and fair priced. Especially compared to others. Due to circumstances we requested a small ceremony to be held at our home and it was great. Thanks again!
