Reverend Jon Turino, Minister, Wedding Officiant
About this pro
Jon was the perfect fit for our ceremony. He is kind, witty, and very professional. He also responded to every email within 24 hours. When my husband stumbled over this line, "wafflely wedding wife", Jon quickly returned with, "want some syrup with that." It was a hit and I'm so happy we chose him!Jul 12, 2018Jon T.'s reply
Than you so much, Mary. It was my pleasure!
Mr. Turino was great for our wedding. I loved how he was always available. He responds quick to my e-mails and phone calls. The Eagle Creek Fire had ruined my plans for a ceremony on the Gorge so he gave me some suggestions for other places and was able to easily relocate our ceremony sight with no problem. He is vary pleasant and easy to work with.Sep 28, 2017VerifiedJon T.'s reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?A simple ceremony only, using a standard religious or non-religious script, with a pre-ceremony phone or email script review consultation, is priced at $150. A tailored ceremony, with an in-person up-front consultation, which is the most popular package, help with customization or modification of the vows and script — a draft of which I’ll supply in advance for editing — is priced at $200. A tailored ceremony, with an in-person up-front consultation, help with customization or modification of the vows and script — a draft of which I’ll supply in advance for editing — and a semi-formal rehearsal, is priced at $300. I also take care of completing and mailing the marriage license back to the appropriate county recorder's office. Rates shown above are for weddings within 25 miles of the Portland, OR, and Vancouver, WA, metro areas. Please contact me for travel surcharges for other venues. A non-refundable $50 retainer via credit card is due when you book me in order to reserve your date. The remaining balance is due 3 days prior to the ceremony. You can make your payment using the pull-down menu and Add to Cart button below. Please check my Booking Calendar or contact me by email or phone before making a payment. Ceremonies that start more than 30 minutes late may be subject to an additional $50 charge. And please don’t forget to have the marriage license, issued at least 3 full days in advance, on hand along with two witnesses! I can’t legally marry you without them!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Once I am booked I provide processional/recessional forms, ceremony formation information for the bridal party, a questionnaire on Making It Meaningful and a sample script with typical readings and vows. We then have a consultation, usually by phone (or Skype or Google Hangout) or over coffee, to make sure we get everything pulled together as desired. Then I participate in the rehearsal (if there is one) and perform the ceremony. I fill out the paperwork and mail it to the appropriate County office for recording.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I follow the wedding groups and posts on Facebook and Pinterest so that I can make good suggestions to my clients.
