Introduction: I believe, and have been told many times, the wedding ceremony I performed was the most beautiful, meaningful, personal and fun ever. I have several types of ceremonies; non denominational, non-religious, varying cultures, including Celtic or even completely original. For those wanting a personal wedding, I will provide a questionnaire. The couples answers to each question are woven throughout the ceremony and the result is always tears of joy and joyful laughter. I believe there are times in life when we pass through a threshold and enter into a new aspect of our journey. Events like graduations, marriages, births, and loss require a ceremony or ritual to assist us in the change that will follow the event. I fully grasp how momentous the occasion of the wedding is for a couple and the changes that will follow. I have an ability to read people and intuitively understand their needs in the moment and to guide them through any stress they may be experiencing. I most love about my work is watching a groom as he sees his bride, for the first time, as she begins the walk down the aisle toward him. Listening to couples, who are deeply moved by the vows they chose which convey the promises they make to one another, is awe inspiring. Seeing the love in the eyes of a couple as they say "I Will" or “I Do”. These moments stay with me. Each ceremony is a unique experience and whether the couples are young or mature I know I am blessed to be included in their special moment.

Cathi is a very professional wedding officiant. She explained everything very well and made us feel more comfortable. Her words were so touching I nearly cried more than once. I highly recommend Cathi.

Cathi officiated our wedding, and was so helpful! She answered all the questions we didn’t know to ask to customize our wedding ceremony to fit us best. Her words were so beautiful and we couldn’t have asked for more!

Wedding Officiant

Our officiant, Cathi, was everything we hoped for and more...our elopement was quite sudden; we decided on April 5th to get a marriage license and to get married on April 11, a day of deep significance to both of us. It seemed we might miss our April 11 target date as we began looking for someone to speak the words over us...either an officiant was booked that day or they didn’t share the Christian values we both needed to see in the person responsible for leading us in forging a covenant between my wife, myself, and our Father in heaven. We did quite a bit of praying, and we saw all our prayers answered, and we are both certain that Cathi is one of God’s miracles because as our officiant she was absolutely perfect! The spirit of solemnity with which she conducted our ceremony was lightened beautifully by the obvious and very genuine joyousness of her spirit. We are very grateful to Cathi for making our day more wonderful than we had expected, and for not only taking us on at extremely short notice but for her extra efforts and involvement in helping us with ideas for writing personal vows, for offering potential ceremony venues, and for giving us a wide variety of ceremonies to chose from or to borrow from if we chose to create our own. She was also accommodating with her modest fee, which, in our opinion, was well below her value. We would recommend Cathi and Weddings by Divine Design to anyone! Thank you very much! Sincerely, Steve and Kimberly

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I keep my pricing in line with the situation. If you feel the fees I have stated are too high please let me know so we can see if there is a place we can agree. My weddings are priced to cover the cost of; advertising, travel, preparation time, and wedding time. In the case of a rehearsal my fees are fairly low.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First is a conversation, either in person, phone, Skype or FaceTime. This is a time for me to listen to how they picture their perfect day. Often, those ideas need to be clarified, and through a series of questions and answers the couple can make clear to themselves and to me the wedding of their dreams. Next we'll schedule dates and times. I have simple contract to complete so that we're clear on next steps regarding meetings, directions, rehearsal and most important of all the wedding. I remain available for conversations, and any changes or of updates to wedding plans right up to the last minute.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am an Ordained Minister of Centers for Spiritual Living and currently am the Senior Minister and Leader of The Unity of Beaverton Church in Beaverton, OR. I have been in ministry for more than 20 years.
