Don't hesitate - just book Reverend Haley before her schedule fills up! Maureen helped to make our special day truly exceed our expectations. Her attention to detail and professionalism went above and beyond and I received countless compliments on how unique and personal our ceremony was. Maureen was available throughout the entire planning process to offer assistance with ceremony ideas when needed, and she was entirely open to our wants and specifications. She was also able to make helpful recommendations for musicians and other local vendors when asked. Maureen is wonderful to work with and if I were able to do this all again, I wouldn't change a thing! I absolutely recommend Reverend Haley as an officiant - for whatever type of ceremony you are planning. The value for her services is incredible. Thank you, Maureen, for making our wedding so very special!
Maureen Haley was wonderful to work with. You will be very happy with the services she offers. She is friendly, personable and a very calming spirit about her. She will gladly help you in any way she can. She is a joy to work with.
Maureen was lovely to work with, we couldn't have had a better experience. My fiancé (now husband) and I have been together 16 years so having a big ceremony was the last thing we were looking for. Maureen came out to our home and gave us a quiet, intimate ceremony for just us and our 4 witnesses - it was exactly what we were hoping for.
Her website is very informative about the whole licensing process and she was open, friendly and responsive in our email communications arranging the whole thing. I would recommend her to anyone without reservation.
Maureen was amazing! She was easy to work with and very accommodating. Nothing was overly complicated, and she provided an excellent service!
Maureen Haley was friendly, professional, and accommodating to our needs. Our one and a half year old got sick a day before our wedding day. She was very understanding and made us feel so at peace with all the last minute changes we had to make to accommodate our family.
Thank you so much sweetie!
We will refer you to everyone we know!
Maureen was just amazing. We flew to Portland from all the way across the country, and first met her about 3 minutes before she preformed the ceremony. We coordinated everything by email and she was so friendly and helpful in guiding us through the whole process. We gave her very little direction and didn't know quite what to expect, and she did a really beautiful job. A great choice for your special day!
We wanted to get married on Christmas Eve and Maureen was so sweet about performing our ceremony on such a special day!
We thought her words were sweet, profound & lovely. Our elopement was perfect because Maureen was so gracious. It was magical !!!

Maureen was extremely professional from the first time we had contacted her. She had taken the idea we had formulated and turned it into a dream. With only having a short phone conversation Maureen was able to create a bond with us and developed a ceremony that was more than perfect. She was accommodating to our likes and dislikes. We were traveling from Philadelphia to Portland Oregon and had very little information and idea of how the licensing process worked in the state of Oregon. But with Maureen's extensive knowledge she was able to advise us which definitely aided in reliving the stresses of wedding planning.
Maureen is extremely professional, punctual and really loves what she does. She's very organized and even offered her time to come to our dress rehearsal. She is a leader, therefore she makes sure everything is perfect for your wedding ceremony. She has a plan B for anything that might go wrong and has the experience to fix it. She made us extremely comfortable and relaxed. It was wonderful to work with her and anyone would be lucky to have her marry them. It was a wonderful experience thanks to Maureen.
Maureen was so wonderful to work with and make this day happen! She responded quickly to all my emails and gave great instructions and what our responsibilities were. My husband and I eloped in the truest sense of the word, no guests or witnesses. We had the ceremony at a park that Maureen suggested which was just perfect. She had asked two ladies to be our witnesses and they were kind enough to take photos during the ceremony . Her wedding address, the blessing and ring exchange were beautifully spoken. Fortunately she gave us a copy! Afterwards they staid and helped us take some photos which turned out wonderful . It was going to be a special day anyway but those little things made it all the more perfect!
Maureen was a lovely edition to our quaint, little wedding. While I've had nothing against marriage, Ive never really wanted a "wedding"! So here's how it went: I her website online, and sent her a message. She responded quickly to my questions and concerns. She really put my nerves at ease! There were a few changes and she was able to be flexible. She's easy to talk to, and delightful! Very happy 100%!
People don't always remember what you say or what you did, but they always remember how you made them feel. Maureen Haley left my husband and I with a lasting impression of a heartfelt love. We will never forget her. I highly recommend her for your special day, you won't regret it.
Maureen made our surprise Christmas Eve wedding easy. We picked our own vows out of a list of several carefully crafted vows on her website. Maureen was warm, friendly, and very responsive. She called before coming over to make sure our guests were prepared and we were ready to go. When the video recording of the ceremony didn't work, she was willing to re-do the ceremony so we could get a second recording! I highly recommend her as a flexible, kind, and knowledgeable officiant that will make your last minute wedding a breeze.
From our initial phone conversation, Maureen simply "understood" who we were as a couple and what we were looking for in a ceremony. She was quick to respond to inquiries, provided helpful advice to cut through all the red tape of acquiring a marriage license, and delivered the perfect ceremony on our "big day," even though we hadn't even met in person beforehand. She is fun, and warm, and wise - our entire family loved her! During a frantic 11th hour moment, Maureen provided exactly the right calming words to assure us that everything would be wonderful - and it was!
Maureen was great, she clearly provided all the information we needed to be married. She was easy to work with to schedule. She has great pre-set vows to choose from if so desired. We get she truly was genuinely excited for our marriage even not being a large and expensive ordeal.
My husband and I wanted to have a low key yet meaningful ceremony for our elopement. We also wanted it to be easy! Maureen was the perfect fit for our day. We did the ceremony at the conference room at Sage Centre where she has her office, and it was a great fit for us. It was cozy and clean and simply decorated. Maureen was amazing and her words rang so true and sincere. She read a lovely poem and provided us with a copy as our keepsake. The ceremony really couldn’t have been more perfect, and I could feel her positive energy. I felt that she truly shared the joy of the moment with us. She got all of our legal forms prepared efficiently and accurately and explained our next steps to us as well. I highly recommend Maureen!
We found Maureen extremely professional, well organized and a responsible person. We had our big day last week, and she took care of everything really well. I would definitely recommend Maureen to my friends, a professional who you can rely on for your big day.
Reverend Maureen Haley was not only a great officiant, but was an amazing resource throughout the process of planning and executing our wedding. The experience she has and shared with us helped us to make sure everything was planned out and happened with as much smoothness as can be expected.
She was willing to work with us and our little quirks and was amazingly helpful the day of. She would be a great officiant for any wedding.
Reverend Maureen stepped in when our Officiant had to unfortunately bow out of our renewal of vows. She was extremely flexible, positive, caring and thoughtful. It was a pleasure having her officiate and it was obviously meant to be :)
What a special ceremony Rev Maureen Haley created and officiated for us!
Shelley and I were "married" 3 years ago in Texas, but made Portland, OR our choice for the "legal" ceremony. From start to finish, she made it spiritual, beautiful, and memorable. Since, we already considered ourselves married, we actually thought it wouldn't be very emotional., but when Rev Maureen finished her 2nd sentence, we were both in tears. Her words were us, as if she knew our hearts and thoughts. She choose the backdrop, a giant tree at Gabriel Park, the tree of life. She also provided the witnesses and they were kind, sincere, and truly elated for us!
We will never forget that moment and the people that made it beautiful! It will stay in our hearts forever. If you are searching for someone to officiate your elopement, Rev Maureen is made for your day. Her spirit and love soars!
Much love, Shannon & Shelley
As a same sex couple, it is important to find someone who does not see gender but sees a happy couple that wants to spend the rest of their lives together. My wife and I were very pleased with the service Rev Haley provided to us. She is very respectful and responsive in the communication process leading up to the special event. Thanks Rev. Haley.
Maureen was fantastic. We couldn't have choose a better day and she even arrange the weather to be just right ;)

We wanted an intimate and special ceremony and Maureen was the perfect choice. She was very responsive and professional during the planning process, and the day of our wedding was really, really wonderful.
The ceremony was very sweet and special, we both really loved it.
I highly recommend Maureen as the perfect choice for officiating a very intimate and wonderful wedding.
My partner and I wanted to get married before the end of the year, it was kind of spur of the moment, kind of not. I contacted Maureen and she got right back to me, was able to meet with us on my preferred date and also provided witnesses. She was divine! Her service was sweet and touching. We would recommend her to anyone!
My husband and I intended on having a courthouse wedding on the marine corps birthday, but my son ended up being hospitalized at OHSU. My mom decided the show must go on. She found Maureen thru the hospital priest. Maureen was amazing! She walked us thru all the steps needed to make the wedding happen. She was friendly and accommodating. She was available on the very short notice we gave her. She got to OHSU right on time. Our service was lovely. She spoke beautifully and seemed genuinely happy to be there and be a part of our special day. I would definitely recommend her to anyone else looking to get married.
