Wonderful Officiant for Our Lakeside Micro-Wedding
Mary Ellen was a perfect choice to officiate our hike-in ceremony. Mary Ellen took the time to get to know us and tailored a ceremony that fit us and our ceremony location. She was a trooper about hiking to the ceremony site and was the first to arrive at the trailhead on the morning of our ceremony. She fit right in with our small group of family and friends and added to the energy and celebratory feeling of the day. We highly recommend Mary Ellen!Sent on 11/10/2020

Mary Ellen made a perfect day!Sent on 09/19/2019
Mary Ellen is always professional and wonderful to work with. I have worked with her on a few weddings and I like her style and how she engages the couple and guests in the ceremony to make the memories of their beautiful day even more special.
Mary Ellen is wonderful to work with and has preformed many ceremonies at Black Butte Ranch. Couples enjoy her fun approach, and she develops a wonderful relationship with the couples she works with.
Mary Ellen is a true gem! She is a wonderful woman who will give your wedding the time and attention for a truly beautiful ceremony! You'll certainly be in good hands!
