About

On WeddingWire since 2012

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!

Highly recommend!

Rev. Richardson is so great to work with. From our first meeting with her, she really took the time to get to know us. She is truly passionate about her work, and makes each of her clients feel valued and cared for. She is very open and flexible, and will make sure she understands all your needs, wishes, and preferences for your ceremony. Our wedding ceremony was so special and meaningful, and it felt very much like it was ours. I highly recommend Rev. Richardson, she will make your day that much more special.
