Introduction: The greatest compliment I receive is when a guest comes up to me at the end of a ceremony, and asks me how long I’ve known them. Then they’re shocked when I tell them I’ve only known the happy couple for a few months. That’s when I’ve done my job right. One thing that allows me to stand out above the rest is attention to detail. When I work with a couple, I have them get to know me, and I take the time to get to know them. That way, their ceremony doesn’t just have a feeling of someone reading off a script. Their ceremony is all about them, and their story as a couple. I am careful to make sure every aspect of the wedding ceremony is exactly what the bride & groom want. This is why I say: “Ceremonies as unique as you.” I’m looking for couples who want to create a truly authentic ceremony. One they’ll be well-pleased with and their guests will absolutely enjoy. I love helping two people achieve their dream of marrying their soulmate. Being involved in such a wonderful event is a complete honor to me. No matter how many ceremonies I do, every one of them means something to me. I understand that couples have a variety of choices, and when they choose me... wow!

Ernie was absolutely amazing! We initially reached out to Ernie based on all the great reviews he had and we made the right decision! Super helpful throughout the entire process and answered all of our questions that came up leading up to the wedding. He met with us months before to discuss details and to get to know us so our ceremony could be personalized to the way we wanted it to be. Thanks to Ernie our ceremony went by super smooth. We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! Would highly recommend Ernie to anyone who is getting married - you won’t find a better officiant!

My husband and I are so happy that we booked Ernie as our officiant for our wedding. He did such a great job from start to finish, and even made our ceremony customized to how we were wanting it and what best matched our personalities. My husband and I both recommend him to anyone who’s looking for an officiant.

Ernie was the officiant at a friend's wedding in October of last year and when we got engaged in December I knew just who I wanted for our wedding! We had a super small family only elopement in Cannon Beach and Ernie was incredible to work with! We wanted a very simple and straightforward ceremony and he provided everything we wanted. He had a ton of options to choose from and I can tell that he really cares about making sure each wedding is personalized for the bride and groom. Ernie was amazing to work with throughout the entire process and after our ceremony our family raved about what a great job he did. I would recommend Ernie to ANYONE who is getting married! You will not be disappointed! Thank you Ernie for everything!

Ernie was absolutely wonderful! We were so fortunate to find Ernie on such short notice. We were in a last minute scramble 2 weeks before the wedding when our original officiant had an emergency. Ernie was quick to respond, easy to work with and assisted us in customizing the ceremony wonderfully. He had several examples and ideas for ceremonies that we were able to pull from! We revamped everything (which was both nerve wracking and terrifying so close to the date), but Ernie was able to ease any anxiety we had and tailored everything to our liking. He answered all questions we had promptly, was on time and incredibly well spoken! We received several compliments from guests about Ernie and we have since referred another friend to him. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant!

Ernie is the best! From the moment we had our first meeting with him we knew he was the officiant for us. Everything he did was so thoughtful and personalized. He was incredibly responsive and helpful every step of the way (even after the wedding!) He was also very kind and thoughtful during the pandemic/rescheduling process which was wonderful.

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    I loved doing my boss' ceremony. Her & her fiancé had an issue with a wedding officiant & were in a jam. She sought me out at my work & asked me if I could help (wedding was in less than 2 weeks). I took them both out for coffee, made sure everything they wanted in their ceremony & then told them to relax, I would take care of them. We had such a blast & they were grateful it worked out the way it did. I made that part of the wedding planning easy for them.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Make sure you have the ceremony you want. After all, it's your memory you're creating. Too many times I've seen people settle for less or do the ceremony somebody else forces on them. Make sure your officiant asks lots of questions.
