You need ernie!
Ernie is the absolute BEST, we were so lucky to have him! I was nervous when booking an officiant, I wanted someone who was kind and fun and could really covey our love story. Ernie exceeded all expectations and more. We booked him for our rehearsal as well as the last thing I wanted to do was instruct our 12 plus bridal party on how to walk down the aisle. Ernie took all that stress away and walked our bridal party through everything like a breeze. We received so many compliments about Ernie and a lot of our guest asked how we knew him. Book Ernie, you won’t regret it!Sent on 09/25/2019

Best choice you'll make for your entire wedding!
Ernie's services were second to none. He was easy to work with and did everything he could to get to know us. It was a very organic experience that ended up with a beautifully delivered ceremony. He was very friendly and flexible and helped our wedding day go smoothly. We were so grateful to have found Ernie and that he could be a part of our special day. Had we needed to make this choice again, we'd choose Ernie every time. 10/10 would recommend!Sent on 10/13/2019

Working with Ernie to be the officiant at our wedding was a great experience. He was very fast to respond to our inquiry and after an in person meeting it was clear his passion for providing this service. He performed a beautiful and intimate ceremony for our immediate family, and his words and message we will always cherish. Ernie was reliable, easy to work with, and I would highly recommend him to help make any wedding even more special! Thanks Ernie!Sent on 10/01/2018

I have worked with EC Matrimony on a couple different occasions. The ceremony is always runs flawlessly and is just perfect. My couples are always so happy with him.
I am one of the owners of Once Upon A Happy Ending Events based in Wilsonville. Recently we had the amazing opportunity to plan a wedding in just 30 days. Ernie came highly recommended to us by other wedding professionals and he did not disappoint! I was very impressed with his dedication and willingness to work with our couple, even on very short notice. Ernie has quickly become one of our preferred vendors and we highly recommend him!
