BJ officiated our wedding and put together such a lovely ceremony. It really started our special day perfectly!
We hired Ernie for our wedding by just googling "wedding officiant" and never heard of thumbtack before. He replied and after reading his profile and reviews, we were sure we found the perfect person to be our officiant on our perfect day!! We had added a couple of last minute things to our ceremony that Ernie flawlessly added to our ceremony without any rehearsal!! He is extremely professional, very down to earth and values the importance of the day!! We will have these memories for the rest of our life and we greatly appreciate all you did to make our wedding perfect!!! You will not be let down!!!!!!
Loretta did a wonderful job with our customized wedding and our wedding day would not have been complete without her! She's has a lovely ability to hear, understand, and synthesize what you need as a couple in a ceremony.
You can not have a better officiant! After witnessing my sisters wedding, who's officiant just flew through the ceremony so fast you could barely understand her, I was extremely hesitant on choosing ours. But Anthony is the absolute best! He was extremely responsive to all of my emails and had several different ceremonies to choose from! Then 4 days before my wedding.. I needed to move the ceremony 2 hours forward. He said no problem.. then we were running behind, still he said no problem. He was so calm and collected the entire time. I was so frazzled just trying to make sure everything was running smoothly (which it was not! Ha) And then when didn't have any type of rehearsal (because we were running so far behind) that he cued us on what to do during the ceremony (like telling us when to start walking down the aisle) I can't tell you how relieving it was to have him there. He even made sure to stand aside after pronouncing us husband and wife so our pictures would be just my husband and I. I would highly recommend him!! Your officiant sets the mood for your whole wedding!
I was extremely nervous about finding an officiant for our wedding ceremony. Neither my husband or I knew much about the process and we're reluctant to find someone online with fairly short notice. Neither of us have a very religious background, so I was also worried about finding someone who would be able to provide vows that resonated with us as a couple. Cathi did an exceptional job at filing us in on the process as well as listening to what we were wanting. There was some miscommunication on the day we got married regarding the time (we were an hour off), but Cathi showed up on time and prepared (even considering her having a fairly long commute). She was extremely professional and helpful. A very genuine person. We would absolutely recommend Cathi to anyone who is looking into a wedding officiant.
Mike Ashland married Shauna and I on September 14th, 2013. It was the happiest day of my life besides the recent birth of my first child. When I asked Mike to be the officiant of our wedding, it was such a small part of the bigger picture we where planning, like what venue, who to invite, how many people, what kind of food. The fact of the matter is, the ceremony that Mike planned and officiated ended up being the best part of the wedding. Not because everyone remembered Mike, but because Mike let all of our guests know who we were. Through interviews and his questionnaire, Mike encompassed who we were individually and who we had become together. The ceremony was filled with tears, laughter and love. Mike gave Shauna and I the best advice and I think anyone getting married should hear it, "two days before the wedding know that anything that happens is meant to happen, and to make sure and be present with each other." A month ago Mike married my brother and from a different perspective I got to enjoy the beautiful process through the eyes of someone in the crowd. It again was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I had ever witnessed. When Shauna and I got home from my brothers wedding, we read our vows that Mike sent us and got to relive the moment for a second time. Mike Ashland is highly recommended to plan and implement a personal. creative, unique, and individualized wedding ceremony that you will remember forever.

We struggled all around Portland looking for the perfect interfaith wedding officiant. We asked christians and jews alike to design a wedding that would support both of us. We found Joanie and Yehudah after, time and time again we were pointed in their direction. We are beyond happy with the ceremony that they helped us put together. I even spent a quiet afternoon in their home, having a cup of tea with Joanie working out my personal vows. They are a wonderful couple who put a lot of attention into exactly what you are looking for. Three years later, people still talk about how wonderful it was.
Rose did an amazing job officiating our wedding. The wedding script she wrote for us was perfect! She was very helpful and very prompt in answering all our questions!
For a special event like your wedding, I would not have anyone else. I would recommend Don to everyone. Don married my Husband and I, going way beyond the call of duty as we had him hike to get to the wedding location. He bought those special moments with him. He can take a tense moment and turn it into a very caring moment. Plus he has a sense of humor. I hate boring read from the script weddings. That is not Don. Don also married my son and my best friend. He is wonderful.
Glenda is personable and professional. Glenda did a wonderful job officiating our wedding. We had many details we wanted mentioned in the ceremony and Glenda worded them perfectly. We really appreciate how genuinely nice Glenda is as well. Very sweet woman. Thank you Glenda!
Doug and his wife are an amazing couple and work so well together to make your day personal and beautiful. On such short notice Doug called me and met with my husband and I the next day. We had a wonderfully relaxed meeting and felt very comfortable with Doug. We met Jan at the rehearsal and if it wasn't for them it would have been nothing but chaos that night. The wedding ceremony itself was beautiful. Doug put the right touch of religion that I felt God was there but not so much that the ceremony was more about religion then us. Doug and Jan both gave so much of themselves to our wedding that we feel as if they are friends now and look forward to continuing to have a relationship with them. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Douglas Balzer as the officiant for your wedding, and his wife too.
Laura was the officiant for my sisters wedding, the Audas wedding 8-20-2011 (which I helped plan) & it was beautiful (some pics are on here)!!! Laura was so great with my sis... who really didnt know what she was wanting or the right way to go about things. This was my sisters second wedding...but it was her first fairy tale wedding (her first marriage was in vegas). It was very important for us as a family to help make this day the perfect day. Laura was truely amazing! My sis has 2 kids & her hubby to be had 4, we really wanted to find a way to involve the kids in the ceremony. Not only was this a union for Tanya & John... this was a union for a FAMILY! We wanted to do a sand ceremony. Each family member picks out a color of sand & they all individually add there sand to the keepsake container. Tanya & John together first... then each child in age rank individually.... then Tanya & John together to top it off. Laura came up with the idea of having each child say their own vows with the new step parent to be. It was amazing!!! There was not a dry eye in the yard & all the kids felt so loved & special!!! I highly reccomend Laura to everyone I talk to & for anyone who wants to have a special... personal... amazing wedding. She is brilliant!! Thank you so much Laura for being so great! Much love & appreciation Chrissy ;-)
