About

Diva Matters Ministry is based in Portland, Oregon and provides officiant services all over Oregon, Washington and beyond. Rev. Dee with Diva Matters Ministry used to keep track of all the weddings she’s officiated since beginning in 2008, but lost count as she’s approached several hundred!
“I remember being beyond excited and downright thrilled when I had 12 weddings on the calendar.… 12 weddings! 12 couples wanted ME to officiate their wedding! I was ecstatic! That excitement has never left me.”
Name a denomination, race, age, gender or ethnicity, and Rev. Dee has probably pronounced them married! She’s consulted on vows, and readings, with same-sex couples, deeply religious couples, non-religious couples. And couples looking for a lyrical wedding like Lord of the Rings themed, and then there’s the practical and mostly heartfelt and genuine and meaningful! Rev. Dee has a very comfy-cozy office where the magic happens, with meeting her many couples. And she will perform small intimate weddings there also. She will drive or fly most anywhere to perform the ceremony and makes every one of them unique by incorporating the couples’ cultural or family traditions as much as possible or as much as they want.
You just might want to contact her as soon as you can!

    Dee was absolutely amazing. She went above and beyond to make our day extra special. She listened to all of our ideas and wants and turned our ceremony into something extraordinary. She is so kind and sweet and really knows what she is doing.

    Dee is amazing!

    We had planned a non-religious beach ceremony but for whatever reason had trouble finding an officiant for our wedding. For a while, we waffled between picking someone that we knew or a professional. When we settled on getting a professional (so our guests could all sit back and enjoy the wedding without any additional pressure), it seemed like everyone was booked! As if that wasn't frustrating enough, we also had some less-than-polite responses when we inquired out to ask some of them about their availability. Not sure why Dee hadn't come up on my earlier searches but I'm so happy that we were able to find her. Dee is so nice, friendly, and really cares about her couples! She tailored what she said at our wedding so that it was like she knew us personally, including some really great vows that were very "us." Like many other couples, we had to deal with rescheduling our wedding due to COVID and she was so professional, understanding, and supportive throughout the entire process. Thank you SO much Dee for being a part of our special day!

    October 2020 Wedding

    We didn't speak with many ministers before we met with Rev. Dee and hired her for our wedding, in fact, she was the only one we met with. Just from the first meeting we knew she was a perfect fit. We had some non-traditional and unconventional ideas for our wedding, along with trying to host it during COVID, and she delivered exactly what we had asked and then some. Fantastic work, great value, and a pleasure to work with.
