The most wonderful wedding officiant!
Carolyn is a complete gem! We are so incredibly thankful that we found her. We have been to cannon beach but had never been to hug point lookout where we had our ceremony. She was so patient with us while we were being indecisive and kept changing our location. She even went and scouted locations for us and sent pictures along with pros and cons of the area. She was so great about running through the rehearsal so everyone knew what they were doing and helped calm our nerves in doing so. We forgot our hand fasting scarf and she had a beautiful selection to choose from. She was flawless in her delivery of our ceremony readings, so personable and fun. I hope she’ll still be doing this in a few years because I could see us doing a vow renewal with her! I would recommend her to anyone to help out with their ceremony. We are truly so thankful. CAROLYN, YOU’RE THE BEST!!!!Sent on 09/16/2019

Oregon Beach Ceremonies's reply:Sarah and Laura had the most beautiful elopement at Hug Point! They had a gorgeous arbor decorated from top to bottom with flowers perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean. It was gorgeous! Surrounded by a small group of friends and family, their ceremony was heartfelt, sweet, and funny. Thank you Laura and Sarah for choosing me as your Officiant. Your ceremony was just perfect!!

The one concern we had eloping was the ceremony wouldn't feel special because we did not know the officiant Carolyn. After a few short emails, she made our ceremony absolutely perfect. We were so happy with how everything turned out. I don't think she could have made it any better!Sent on 04/30/2019
Oregon Beach Ceremonies's reply:I loved getting to know Dayna and William through the planning process. Their story was so sweet and it was fun to see how much it meant to them to have written it into their ceremony. Of course, the two of them made it even more stunning with how breathtakingly beautiful they were together!

We traveled to the Oregon coast from Jersey to get married. Carolyn made the planning process so simple and easy. She referred amazing florists and photographers. Carolyn took the time to get to know us so that she could make our ceremony absolutely perfect. Being that we were from out of town, she recommended the location which was Ecola Park. The Goonies was filmed there and she knew that we were total Goonies nerds!!! I can not recommend Carolyn enough. Absolutely phenomenal. Thank you so much Carolyn for making our day so special.Sent on 09/19/2019
