So, you’re getting married! What kind of wedding ceremony do you want?
Every couple has a unique story. No matter what kind of ceremony you want, my goal at Seattle Wedding Officiants is to help you tell your story just the way you want to on your special day. I will help you decide what you want your ceremony to look and feel like—and then take you through the steps to make it happen—just the way you dreamed it would.
I’ve married all kinds of couples in lots of different settings: multi-faith, traditional Christian, civil, LGBTQ, non-denominational ceremonies and more. My passion is helping couples celebrate their love with a ceremony that they and their guests will remember: turning an ordinary wedding ceremony into the extraordinary. In addition, I have officiated weddings at a variety of locations: private homes, beaches and city parks, hotels and mansions. I even joined a couple and their friends on a 3-mile hike to Tiger Mountain, Issaquah where the couple exchanged vows overlooking the Issaquah valley below. I am always open to exploring new locations of your choice and welcome new requests!
What makes me different? The couples I have married tell me that I:
I will help you craft a perfect ceremony and assist with the details so you can focus on the joy and happiness on your special day.

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

Elaine took care of everything
I can't say enough great things about Elaine. I had absolutely zero clue about how weddings worked until speaking with her at our first meeting. She provides a really helpful portfolio informing couples about the wedding process, and you chose what elements you like while omitting the ones that are inconsistent with the mood that you are trying to create. Elaine made it clear on many fronts, that there is no wrong way to do it. This was very comforting to me, as I thought that many of my ideas might be silly.Sent on 12/05/2018
Elaine is a true professional who will walk you through the process step by step so that you are fully prepared for your special day. Her performance during the ceremony is commanding, professional, and warm all at the same time. We highly recommend Elaine as an excellent choice as wedding officiant.

All-around amazing experience!
Elaine was awesome to work with. Very easy going and attentive. She made us feel so comfortable and at ease! Not only did she help us with wedding planning, she also gave us tips and advice for our entire stay in Seattle. :)
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!
