Tom walked us through the overall process and worked with us on the ceremonial aspect of our wedding. He traveled across Portland in a short amount of time to meet our personal needs. The ceremony was short and sweet as requested and he was audible and clear the entire service. Even after the wedding Tom continued to go the extra mile by helping us obtain our certified copy of our license in a timely manner. Nothing less than an outstanding minister and would recommend to all.

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!

This man was in my life during a point of vast uncertainty. When everything else in my life was falling apart, he was there to keep me, my faith, and my spirit strong. For me, he was a youth minister, and a great friend. He laid the foundation of my spirituality for me, and others that I have met, to to follow.

Sandi was a dream! We met several times prior to our wedding to go over details. Man is she thorough! I needed that since I often felt all over the place in the planning. She was thoughtful and sincere in her personal touches. Thank you so much Sandi for being a part of our special day!

My husband and I wanted to renew our marriage vows with a brand new wedding, performed by a minister we knew and surrounded by friends in a beautiful setting. When we were firms married, it was a very private ceremony with no guests, in a place that wasn't home to either of us, although we knew we didn't want to wait any longer. When we approached Rev. Julie with our request for celebrate our 40th anniversary with a renewal of vows complete with the big celebration, she immediately said yes she would be so happy to work with us on making this a very special day. Rev. Julie and her co-minister, Rev. Cathy, went above and beyond in assisting us so that we had a dream wedding, which we will always cherish. Rev. Julie's joy in all parts of her ministry came through completely.

Jay was our first choice of ministers to marry us when we were wed in June of 2008. We were excited when he agreed to officiate. He led us through pre-marital counseling sessions that really helped us look deeper into our commitment to each other. Jay took the time to work with us in creating our vows and how we wanted it to be. And most of all he endured standing outside in the heat of a late June Arizona ceremony! Jay is highly versed in his field and very profession yet friendly and kind. We would definitively recommend him for your marriage needs.

Glenda really listens to you and what you want. She listens to your ideas and also has her own ideas that fit what you are wanting. Our ceremony was uniqued compared to your usual wedding ceremony and she took it on, enjoyed it, and did a great job. I would very much recommend her. Also I loved that she kept a copy of all the scripts which she gave us to keep in or records....or as I like to think of them...for our memories. It was a nice personal touch.

Manny was awesome. He delivered a great and very sincere sermon for a beautiful ceremony on the beach. It is obvious that he is a guy who is passionate about peforming weddings and takes great pride, as he should, in the work he does with this. I'd recommend Manny the wedding dude to anyone!

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

Daniel was the officiant for my daughter's wedding. He was outgoing and friendly. Very helpful prior to the service too. He met with the couple several times to ensure the service would be just what they wanted. He had to travel over 200 miles to get to the venue at Priest Lake and he arrived early, so there was never a worry he would not make it. He was impeccably and appropriately groomed and dressed, He even added a touch of the wedding colors with his tie and the hankie in the pocket of his suit. Was very impressed with his professionalism. He had the right amount of seriousness and mixed in just enough humor to help relax the couple. I would not hesitate to hire Daniel again, and I would recommend him to anyone! He was outstanding!

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

Weddings are a day of great celebration, but they can also be one of great anxiety and stress for those who plan them. Fortunately, with BL Minister of Ceremonies, you can rest assured that your wedding ceremony will go off without a hitch. I work together with the couple to provide the best quality of service to each ceremony. Whether you are planning on having a more traditional or eclectic style wedding, I can help.

Non-religious and not into the traditional wedding experience. The last wedding I did, the couple wanted to not exchange vows and do a football huddle instead, in a bar during Happy Hour. It was about the celebration, not the ceremony.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
