About

Located in the San Juan Islands, I travel throughout the islands (Orcas, San Juan, Lopez, Shaw) and to the mainland to officiate and coordinate weddings. My aim is to be of service to couples to create a meaningful and personal ceremony.

The San Juan Islands and nearby areas are amazing locations for weddings with locations that are beautiful.

We have everything you need in the San Juan Islands for a fantastic wedding, from elopements to big weddings: beautiful venues, delicious island-produced food, island-grown flowers, talented photographers and videographers, and great caterers.

Your guests are going to come home and wonder what kind of dream vacation they just experienced!

I think a wedding ceremony is not only intended for the couple who is being married鈥搃t is also intended for everyone who is present at the wedding.

I love meeting children, elders, family, and friends, knowing how important a wedding day is in people鈥檚 lives. It is a pleasure when the wedding party can feel confident and relaxed knowing the ceremony will be a success!

Ceremonies are flexible and non-denominational, religious or non-religious.

Let's work together to create a ceremony that will be a valuable keepsake for the rest of your lives.

It is my pleasure to help dreams come true by listening and creating a personalized ceremony centered around what鈥檚 important to couples to celebrate their love on their wedding day.

I like to gather from conversations (face-to-face, FaceTime, phone) and e-mails what couples admire about each and how couples enjoy sharing their time together, shared values, etc. Then I weave this into the ceremony so that it is personal and meaningful. The process is comfortable and fun. The wedding is a culmination of a relationship that is built by going deep and yet light and joyous.

I like to help guests feel at ease and valued no matter what their role will be in a wedding.

If you鈥檙e thinking of coming to the San Juans (or you are a local who already knows and loves this place), you will be so happy you came to these majestic islands!

If you would like to be married on the mainland, I am available for weddings in Anacortes, Mt. Vernon, La Conner, Burlington, Seattle, and surrounding Puget Sound area. There is an extra travel cost for ferries and time. I am also available for destination weddings.

Visit www.orcasweddingsofficiant.com and let's talk to see if we鈥檙e a good match. If you would like some help with wedding logistics for your stress-free wedding, visit www.islandsweddingsandevents.com. 360.298.0362

Beautiful Ceremony and Sincere Delivery

Didier did such a great job with our ceremony. Ours was somewhat of a last minute affair without a lot of time to plan. Didier was responsive when we first reached out and continued to be so throughout the process. He worked with us to develop a ceremony that was meaningful and lovely. We were concerned that because we didn't know him, it would come off as contrived and rehearsed but Didier is a natural and seems to legitimately care about what he's doing. He was a gentle presence who seemed to want the best for us. I believe Didier believes deeply in the bond of marriage. Our ceremony was very special and Didier was a huge part of that. We would highly recommend his service.

Didier is the best!

From the moment we spoke with Didier about the possibility of officiating for us, I knew we were going to ask him to officiate. He is very warm and engaging, and so easy to talk to. Throughout the ceremony planning process we found Didier to be so dedicated to getting to know you and takes great care to create a truly meaningful ceremony that really highlights your love story. Despite only knowing us a short time, he crafted a ceremony that felt like he knew us for years. It was so beautiful. He also helped us find a great place to order our cakes! I truly can't say enough good things about Didier. He is the best! Thank you so much, Didier!

Didier is a warm, engaging individual, and was so wonderful to work with - we were in a tiny little church on the island and he was both accommodating and communicative....and he gave a lovely delivery officiating. I highly recommend him (and I know the bride and groom were also very happy!).
