As a personalized wedding officiant in Portland, Oregon, A Perfect Ceremony’s Reverend Griffen accommodates a broad range of ceremonies and traditions. Licensed in Oregon and Washington state, Rev. Griffen is available throughout the entire year and has participated in over 1,500 ceremonies.
Rev. Griffen has been in the wedding industry for over 35 years. He worked as a formal wear specialist while in seminary, spent 25 years as a wedding photographer, and worked as a Presbyterian minister for 41 years.
A Perfect Ceremony provides romantic, custom ceremonies that are designed to fit the needs of the couple, including those who come from non-traditional lifestyles. With three traditionally-based sample ceremonies available as starting points, the couple is encouraged to create a ceremony that fits their lifestyle. However, A Perfect Ceremony doesn’t limit couples to those three formats, and works to help you create a day that fits your unique backgrounds and customs.
In addition to ceremonies for couples with no denomination, Rev. Griffen is happy to provide options for couples belonging to 24 different religions:
