Spiritual Ceremony By a Special Person
Mary Ellen is amazing to work with. She spent a lot of time getting to know us, our story and what we hope for in marriage. Every step of the way, we felt like she heard us, honored our individuality, and in the end, created a beautiful, memorable ceremony we will cherish forever. With Mary Ellen’s help, we discovered and uncovered our truths. Our guests were brought into the entire experience, and it was just perfect in every way. Thank you for such a special day!

Marry Ellen couldn’t have been a better fit for our Smith Rock elopement. She has an energy that absorbs you, and a genuine expression of joy when she speaks about the power of love. She was comforting, and easy going, exciting and sincere. We feel lucky to have come across her beautiful soul when we did. 💛🌲 AND she climbed Misery Ridge with us like the champ thatSent on 07/11/2019
