Elaine was one of our favorite parts of wedding planning. She was knowledgeable, professional, accommodating, and also just nice and comfortable to talk to. We had our wedding at the rose garden at Woodland Park Zoo and Elaine was very familiar with the venue (she has lots of experience at venues all over the Seattle area) and able to direct us and our bridal party during rehearsal and ceremony seamlessly. It was nice not to have to worry or think much about it! Most importantly, she wrote and delivered a beautiful and personal ceremony. We got lots of comments on the ceremony, how touching it was, and what a great job our officiant did! Bottom line, we are so pleased we decided to go with Elaine. She helped make our day really wonderful.Sent on 08/12/2018

We love Seattle Wedding Officiants!
Elaine with Seattle Wedding Officiants was everything we could have hoped for! We decided about a month before we traveled to Seattle to get married while we were there and had no idea where to begin. I found Seattle Wedding Officiants through google and after contacting Elaine, she walked us through everything! She provides you instructions for getting a marriage license in Washington State, ideas for the perfect venue, ceremony examples for ANYONE, help with navigating your time in Seattle, AND she will have the perfect photographer for your venue and vision. She provided us with an unforgettable ceremony and the best part was - it was affordable. We loved Elaine and are so happy that we stumbled upon her on google. If you are looking for an amazing officiant, Elaine is the one!!Sent on 03/26/2019

A unique ceremony and good energy, everything gave a magnificent result. Thank youSent on 03/06/2019
There are many moving parts and unexpected changes that can arise in a ceremony (weather not cooperating, etc.) An officiant has to be able to go with the flow and take charge so that everything runs smoothly. Elaine is extremely organized, focused, professional and articulate. She is adept at coordinating all the parts of a ceremony so that everything runs without any hiccups. She was very cognizant of appropriate places to add music as a special touch for the couple. It was great to work with Elaine and I look forward to providing music at the next wedding she officiates!
Elaine creates beautiful ceremonies! I've attended at least 20 of her weddings (as a photographer, not a guest ;), and have always enjoyed her thoughtful and elegant guiding of the ceremony.
I can't say enough nice things about Elaine and how well she works with clients. I have had the pleasure of working with Elaine over the years and it feels like seeing an old friend each time we work at the same event. You can tell that her clients also feel an ease when getting ready for their big moment and Elaine leading the way. You can't go wrong with having Elaine as part of your special day!
