    Beautiful Day on Mt. Hood!

    Mary Ellen was such a pleasure to work with! We especially appreciated her advice and direction to find the perfect words for our elopement. Mary Ellen took the time to get to know our unique love story and incorporate it into our ceremony. We weren't certain of what to expect or anticipate for a private ceremony and she did a wonderful job of guiding us through both the preparation and the wedding day. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day!

    Best wedding officiant ever!!!

    All I can say is, Mary Ellen is the best! She truly is interested in making your wedding ceremony unique and special. Mary Ellen took time to learn our individual love story, and incorporated that into the most beautiful ceremony. All our friends and family commented on what a great job she did, and said our wedding was one of the best weddings they had ever attended. Mary Ellen not only provided resources and suggestions to help us along in the process, but was a huge emotional support as the big day approached with rain clouds threatening to dampen our outdoor wedding at Sparks Lake. We have no doubt that when the skies opened up and the sun revealed itself just at the right time it was due to Mary Ellen’s positive energy! Our wedding day was a huge success and we cannot thank Mary Ellen enough for all she did to make it happen!

    Simply Perfect

    Mary Ellen is a delightfully compassionate person to work with and an even lovelier person to know. She put us at ease with her knowledge and helped us by suggesting locations, vendors, and provided ceremony examples for us to get ideas. Mary Ellen worked diligently with us to create our one of a kind elopement ceremony, which we will treasure for the rest of our lives. We appreciated Mary Ellen's demeanor and easy going approach. We had so much fun eloping! I wish we could do it every year!
