    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!

    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
