    When we got Laura, she’s a totally relaxed person. She made sure that everything was set up during the wedding. She knows how to act professionally and she sees to it that all are taken care of, including our family members. We are so thankful of having her cater our wedding ceremony. She even brought her husband as a photographer, and he also took a lot of pictures of us. We were given a chance to see those pictures in their perfect shot. I’d definitely recommend her as a wedding officiant to my friends' future weddings! Our happy marriage is a testimony of Laura’s excellent wedding service.

    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 this pro

For me it's not just a service, I love performing the ceremonies! Couples are making a life changing commitment and it is awesome being part of it. It's an honor to share in their day. We have fun and make it memorable! I always try to add humor and a story from the couples time together to make the ceremony extremely personal and all that are gathered feel as if they are part of the experience. Most times the attendees learn something new about the couple. I want to be "part" of the day and utilize my people skills to make everyone feel loved, honored and cherished. Pariticipating in "the beginning" is incredible! I am proud to volunteer with "Wish Upon a Wedding". This is a non-profit organization which helps terminal paitents by providing free wedding services and products. The joy of the day! Knowing at the end of the ceremony that I did my best to make the couple comfortable and making it a day they will reflect on their entire "together" life! Hearing the toasts that loved one's share to wish their couple a life of happiness. I never leave without a smile on my face. Beginnings.....

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      I have one fee and that is $300, with additional charges for travel over 25RT miles. I am in Vancouver and can jump across the river for any events in the Portland area. I officiate only one service a day: I like to keep it simple. No rushing, and I want to be there for the special couple. With gas approaching $3 a gallon, I'm glad I have an economical car to keep my fees as low as possible. I love joining couples and do my best to keep the pricing as close to $220 as I can.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I study on the internet within multiple sites to confirm I am up to date on current procedures. I also review the latest trends in creating vows. Added a "sand" ceremony with a family with 6 combined children! Each child and the parents had vows and then they added unity sand into the family container. Have also done "Jumpming The Broom" and "Handfasting". Each ceremony should be specific to each couples individuals wants and desires.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      My husband is a photographer and I've worked with him for years enjoying the love shared by so many. I thought it would be something that I would be good at and I am!! I enjoyed my studies and was enthusiastic about all I learned. There is no set way to perform a ceremony. I continue to create and experiment with different ways to make the wedding day a memorable experience for all. The "Special Couple" can count on me to make it special, just what they had in mind, and fun for all involved. I spend quite a bit time getting to know them and know what they want. I am so glad I decided to give this a try....I love it!!!!
