Introduction: Hello! I’m Sharon, an adventure seeker, a storyteller, a yogi and wedding officiant. I have been officiating weddings since 2017. I began officiating weddings by serendipity when a friend of mine couldn't find a bilingual wedding officiant. I enjoy public speaking and I’m honored to have been a guest speaker and event host for a multitude of events. So, when the opportunity presented itself, I searched how to become ordained, when through the process and officiated my first wedding! Officiating weddings was not something I intended to do long term or as a business. However, through word of mouth, I began officiating more and more weddings. Last year I officiated over 60 weddings. Performing ceremonies gave me an opportunity to write scripts for my couples and create something romantic and memorable. Creating and personalizing every wedding is important to me, as I want to ensure the couple's essence can be felt through my words. During the initial introduction call, I get to learn about the couple, how they met, got engaged, and the quirky things about their relationship. I get to learn about their vision for their dream wedding/ceremony. If they decide to move forward, we work as a team to gather all the important information and begin drafting the script. Once this is completed, we make changes as needed and wait for the big day. On wedding day, I get to see brides walk down the aisle; I get to see tears of joy and many smiles. I have been fortunate enough to have been the first one to know about a pregnancy (minutes before starting the ceremony!) or hold the hand of a nervous bride. I have tied many ties, and have given out many tissues. As a professional, my goal is to ensure your wedding is as magical as you envision it. I want you to be comfortable, and assist in any way I can, sort of like a stand-in sister. I have officiated weddings in English, Spanish and bilingual. LGBTQIA+ customers welcome. Serving the entire state of Washington. I look forward to meeting you and your fiancé and helping you create the wedding you have always wished and dream of.

Sharon did a fantastic job as our wedding officiant! She met with us beforehand and provided us with a questionnaire which she used to create a custom script for our ceremony. We got to read it beforehand and were able to make any changes if we wished. She was very informative and took care of so many things and just made the whole experience stress free for us. Her communication and punctuality were also top notch. We highly recommend her for anyone looking for an officiant.

Sharon was the most perfect officiant I could ask for! The ceremony of our wedding was the most important part for my husband and I. Sharon tailored the ceremony script to touch on all the things that make us who we are and why we love each other so much. I cannot recommend her enough!
