About

Bj was great. Except for she butchered my first and last name as well as my Husbands last name. We had talked to her during an earlier meeting about the pronouncation of our names and she wrote them out in a way that she would understand how to say them. Sadly that did not happen and it was awkward for us in front of our guests. But other than that our ceremony she wrote for us was beautiful!

About

***Recently ranked #2 in Portland Metro area for the wedding services category 2015*** I cater your wedding ceremony to your needs. I do traditional to modern day elements. I sit down with my clients to find out their needs and then go through the full ceremony to make sure everything suits your needs. When the big day comes, I try to help the bride and groom relax by having a fun but calm demeanor. I remind them both that they should have fun! I'm also a firm believer that a minister/officiant shouldn't be an additional financial burden. So, I try to work with everyone's budget. Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to helping you soon.

"We contacted The Wedding Judge at the 11th hour, two days before our wedding, because our previous officiant had fallen through. The Wedding Judge answered the phone right away and was prompt in sending us an email with the details of his services. He even canceled a previous engagement in order to be available to officiate our wedding. The communication was prompt and clear throughout the entire process and he answered all of our questions. He provided a variety of example ceremony/vows that we could choose from, including a Christian ceremony. We were happy that we could still have a Christian ceremony/vows without having to have our ceremony in a church or be officiated by a pastor. He was on time (even though we were late to our venue!). He spoke clearly during the actual ceremony and was professional throughout. We are actually glad our original plans fell through so that we could have The Wedding Judge officiate our wedding! Highly recommend."

About

Well I have known Mike for 30 + years. He was my youth minister during grade school. Not only was Mike my minister but like another dad I never had. I had a rough childhood and the compassion and devotion Mike gave me has turned me into a successful adult. If I had to go back in time I would in heartbeat choose Mike again to share my story. Without him in my life to guide me my life could be very different today. I believe he as put on this earth to Minister each of us. I could write a whole book and what he has taught me through his ministry work.

We can't speak highly enough of Jon! From the first time we reached out to him until the last moments before the wedding, he remained incredibly responsive and reassuring that our special day would turn out exactly as we wanted it. With Jon, you will never feel unprepared during the ceremony; he will guide you, step-by-step, through the entire process by gently directing you and feeding you your words (you have no idea how helpful this is when you're overcome with emotion). One of the best things about Jon is he is as much an observer of the wedding as he is the minister - he will be just as happy to be there as your guests. Truly, having Jon as your minister will feel like you asked a close friend to officiate your wedding. Jon was by far the best choice for us, and we feel you can do no better!

Patty was wonderful to work with. She responded right away to our inquiry and came prepared to our first meeting with a sample ceremony to share with us. She was more than happy to incorporate all our requested changes and little personal touches in the ceremony to make the day truly ours. She combines professionalism with an easy-going and warm spirit which allowed our ceremony to have the right amount of gravitas yet feel warm and intimate at the same time. Plus, the little dash of fairy dust she tossed over us as we recessed back up the aisle truly added that hint of fairytale flair. She made our day as perfect as we had hoped. Than you, Patty, for starting us off on our new beginning to our happy ending!

Sandi did an excellent job coordinating our rehearsal and providing us a beautiful ceremony for our wedding. We loved working with her, meeting with her ahead of time to make sure everything was exactly as we imagined. She provided us all the materials to pick our wording, and customized it to our preferences. She did an outstanding job and we would highly recommend her for wedding events.

About

Joanie was wonderful. She helped us identify the parts of the ceremony that we felt most strongly about, and by providing us with thoughtful suggestions to personalize those parts, she helped create a memorable ceremony that truly reflected our beliefs and traditions. We were hesitant about working with an officiant over long-distance (we don't live in Oregon), but through phone conversations, email exchanges, and one in-person meeting, Joanie made us feel comfortable and confident that the ceremony we were creating with her was personal and meaningful. I would definitely recommend Your Personal Ceremony, especially for interfaith couples who wish to include in their ceremony elements from different faiths.

Reverand Laura was very professional and helpful. She encouraged us to find a pathway to a spiritual, personal ceremony for our marriage. Laura was extremely flexible and empathetic and met our needs flawlessly. She put everyone at ease and was an exceptional minister for us, We recommend her without reservation. She is a very warm, pleasant person who cares for those she serves. Bernadette and Jim

About

My partner and I have been together for over 32 years, so we really thought of our marriage as more of a "formality" and were just going to use a Justice of the Peace. But then we found Rev. Rose. And then we choose the park for the ceremony. And then our friends and family all wanted to come. And then it was a wedding! And believe me, while many of us have been fighting for the right to marry for a very long time, we shouldn't underestimate our right to a wedding, too. It can be just as important. And ours wouldn't have happened without Rev. Rose. Who was perfect. Thanks Rev. Rose! -Gretchen & Lindsey

I had the privilege of having Glenda do my baptismal ceremony. This was conducted outside with a beautiful scenic setting, honoring old and new testaments. Glenda added a type of spirit and experience due to her sincerity and own connection to the divine. She was not only thoughtful in her chosen blessings, the context was extremely applicable for my needs. I came away with beautiful memories and an uplifted impression having connected with spirit through none other than Glenda's assistance! She is truly gifted in this arena and a most helpful guide in celebrating and honoring one's commitment, union, or life celebration. Thank you, Glenda! Much love!

Reverend Rich was an absolute pleasure to work with. He officiated our wedding in August and did a wonderful job. In our initial consultation he offered great advice especially when we were unsure of what we wanted. He gave us examples of ceremony styles and let us design our own details based on what we wanted. He headed our rehearsal and our ceremony ran smoothly! Very easy to work with and I would recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant!

About

After our first meeting with Laura, my husband and I knew we'd be satisfied with having her on board for our wedding. During my wedding planning, I did not focus on our vows until the few days leading up to our wedding day. Laura was so helpful in many ways. She listened to our needs and when ever we changed our minds about something, she was very quick to implement our requests. I felt bad about switching things up on her at the last minute, but she adapted to the changes quickly. She handled it so well. Laura also offered to deal with our vendors, and although I handled that part on my own, I felt she genuinely wanted to make our big day stress-free. She always wore a smile, was professional, and a joy to work with. Thank you, Laura! Mr. & Mrs. Vue :)

About

Pastor Paul was awesome. He was the Pastor for my wife and I's wedding over a year ago. My wife and I had an idea of what we wanted but Paul (having done so many weddings) helped so much with the minor details and different ideas. He made the ceremony so special and with a good sense of humor. Being as busy as he was, he drove over an hour away with no hesitation to make sure we had a very special wedding. He helped out with our vows and referenced different scriptures of the bible that tied in very nicely into the wedding. I know if I were to ever renew my vows, I would definitely ask Paul to be the pastor. He is one of the best, and words can't describe how great he truly is. I definitely recommend Pastor Paul. God Bless!!!

Bob did our wedding at the Embassy Suites in 2010. He was our pastor from the Evergreen Community, and so he was a natural choice. He is a good crowd pleaser, connecting with us and the audience. He also saw that the sound and music guy was a little lost, so he directed that and made things go smoothly. The service went well. His words were thoughtful and meaningful. I can't remember exactly what the words were, but something about how marriage isn't meant for your happiness, but for your holiness.

I had an amazing experience with Sherrie. She was willing to marry my husband and I on very short notice since our other ordained minister bailed on us 8 days before our wedding and we found her 4 days before our wedding. She really saved the day :). She wed us in our back yard we had just a very simple ceremony. She even helped shorten our ceremony due to our 6 month old having a melt down since she missed nap time. She is great to work with has a very up beat personality. She really goes the extra mile for her clients. I would reccomend

About

Can you believe Bev has married me 3 times! Yes! But all to the same man. We had hired Bev to marry us originally on 7/7/07. We planned a small wedding at the Rose Hite Memorial Gardens in Milwaukie. It was held under the pavillion to a small group of friends and family. It was lovely. Bev was very professional. She included a very special part of the ceremony where our children came up and combined different colored sand into a vessel that we could use as a candle holder. We have the candle holder sitting on our mantel to this day, surrounded by the individual different colored glasses of sand that contributed to the final showpiece. We light the candle all the time and remember how special it was when we blended our families. But! Before our 7/7/07 public wedding, we officially married on 6/3/07, which happened to be the anniversary of our first date. It was about 4 days before that day and I was calling to finalize some things for the July ceremony and I asked her if she could accommodate our request to marry us sooner. And she said yes! So off to the courthouse we went to get our marriage license. We each invited one person to "stand up for us" and be our witness, but we didn't let them know we were getting married. Just doing a walk through and wanted their opinion. They were both so surprised! We got married under a small archway in the rose garden itself. Then, on our first anniversary, plus one day, we had Bev complete our committment to each other in a special ceremony that combined Pagen and Christian rituals. We started under the archway exactly opposite where we married the year before, and said some personal things. Then we went next door to the oak grounds of the church next door to complete our ceremony. This time it was just Bev and us two. She was very accommodating to our preferences for this combined ceremony. We couldn't have asked for a better day. And the bonus to all this is that her daughter and she also took pictures for us. She artfully arranged them into a CD and bound photo album for us. Bev is great for honoring whatever you want to express your special day. I wouldn't hesitate to call on her again when we are ready to renew our vows. Kim and Henry Sanchez
