Robert 'Griff' Griffen was an amazing officiant. He was very professional and understanding. He also has vast knowledge about the history of wedding ceremonies, which made conversation very interesting. The prices are very reasonable, and his communication skills are excellent. He was very quick to respond to any messages and arrived at the venue on time. I would recommend him for any ceremony as he does both religious and agnostic ceremonies. Griff was a amazing and thank you!

Grif was awesome!!
We live outside the Portland area and Robert was available via phone for a "phone introduction." We were able to tell him when and were to be for our wedding and he was there. It was wonderful to be able to rely on him so easily. I also forgot to bring our wedding license to the wedding venue and he was kind enough to meet up with us the day after our wedding to finish signing our marriage certificate. Hands down, Griff was awesome and very helpful.Sent on 12/23/2018

Griff was the perfect choice for our daughter's wedding. At our rehearsal, his light hearted sense of humor and experience officiating weddings helped to put everyone at ease. He provided the classic wedding experience that the bride and groom were hoping for. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. H. Pimm, Beaverton

Rev. Griffen, or Grif, as his friends call him, is a great guy and is an Officiant with a sense of humor, and yet reverent as well. He will customize the ceremony for you and I highly recommend him for your wedding.
A true pro. Easy to work with and friendly. Robert gets the job done and never disappoints. He has a fantastic presence and great voice. A veteran officiate who will deliver a wonderful experience for your guests.
