2014 and 2013 Pick of The Knot! 2013 Best Officiant - My Wedding.

You want a warm, personable, genuine officiant who helps you feel at ease and holds a splace for the two of you to share what is in your hearts. A person who listens to your ideas and concerns, then assists you in creating a ceremony that is "just you!'

My husband, Kent, and I are officiants who are honored to celebrate your ceremony exactly as you wish: we celebrate all types of ceremonies - nonreligious, religious, interfaith, intercultural, same sex, destination and completely custom. Either of us can direct your rehearsal and officiate for you. We provide you with lots of ideas, offer you guidance based on 18 years of experience, and bring a calm, centered presence to the planning, rehearsing and officiating of your ceremony. I'm a professional write/editor -- together we will craft wording that is perfect for you.

Our intention is for you to be as delighted with your ceremony as you are with your reception. Be assured your ceremony will be truly yours. Relax and enjoy the entire day!

Premarital preparation is also available as an option, not a requirement. One part focuses on further developing relationship skills to strengthen your marriage and another is more concerned with how to actually enjoy your wedding.

Contact us today for more information: 206.789.9788206.789.9788 or email us at wedwire@aheavenlyceremony.com!

I found Pat and Kent on Yelp, and now that they've played such an important role in our special day, I think it's only appropriate to share what a great job they did for us. From the very beginning Pat and Kent helped us feel welcome into the ceremony process. They put us as ease as they helped to shape our ceremony into something magical.

They worked with us to make the ceremony unique and special, including stories and words from both my wife and I Into the ceremony.

Kent officiated our wedding and showed up well ahead of time to make sure things were all set up. He even brought his own sound system, although we had our own. It was reassuring to have such a professional on our wedding day. He got everyone together for a quick rehearsal too. He did an amazing job with the ceremony and even stuck around to take some photos with us during and after the signing of the wedding certificates.

My wife and I could not have been happier with the personal care and professional skill that Pat and Kent brought to or special day. They were a huge help planning the ceremony from day 1 right up until wedding day.

My husband and I were looking for an officiant who had a lot of experience. I googled a few officiants in the Seattle area and found Pat, I felt a connection with her and e-mailed her right away. She contacted me within a day and she was very professional. She gave me ideas of where to get married, since we’re not from the Seattle area. Since I live 4 hours away we communicated via e-mail / telephone a lot, but it wasn’t difficult to coordinate my wedding that way. She e-mailed me different types of ceremonies and she let me arrange the ceremony the way I liked. We had a small intimate wedding and that’s what we were going for. She was super professional and super nice. She even spoke with my mother in law to give her directions to the ceremony venue (which was nice of her). All of our family / friends complimented on how well she did with the ceremony. Overall she did a great job and I would recommend her to anyone.

My partner and I live in Florida but wanted to get married in Seattle. We communicated via phone and e-mail to make all of the arrangements and we could not have asked for anything better. Pat was responsive, professional and most of all she genuinely cared. On the day of the ceremony, she made us both feel at ease and helped us to be "in the moment" with each other. Pat is an amazing officiant and I would highly recommend her to anyone!

What a joy to officiate for the two of you!

The sun was shining, Seattle was showing herself to the best, the people who witnessed for you were great.

The two of you already have shared a number of wonderful years together. Here's to many, many, many more!

Pat did an amazing job officiating our wedding. We met in person a few weeks prior to the wedding, to go over our wishes and together we created a very personal and beautiful ceremony.
One of our friends said that he has been at 20+ weddings and really thought that ours was the best one. Very personal and it fitted us as a couple perfectly.
We enjoyed working with Pat and highly recommend her!

What an experience! People from across the world getting together at Alderbrook Resort to celebrate your love.

Loved the elements from your homeland in The Netherlands like the champagne and cake hour before dinner (yes to dessert first).

So happy you found each other, are living on the same continent and are excited about what the future holds in store.

Pat and Kent are two of the most kind, caring, and warm people, and my husband and I were so lucky to have them as a part of our wonderful wedding day. Not only did they save us just ten days before the wedding when our other officiant, a family friend, was suddenly unable to make it, but they helped immensely in the planning of the ceremony, and on the day of the wedding, Kent's calm and kind spirit and words made our ceremony so special. We're so lucky to have found you, and we can't thank you enough!

Pat was fantastic to work with--we skyped with her two or three times since we weren't from the area, and she gave us a lot of wonderful resources as well as advice for the day itself. Aside from the great written material, she was wonderful as an officiant, elegant, calm, and a great speaker.

Oh, and please book a rehearsal with her--it's really worth it to walk through everything and hear all of the great advice she has since she has done this so many times!

Sarah -- So glad there is Skype when couples such as the two of you live in another part of the country yet marry in Seattle. It works so very well.

And, thank you for your words about your rehearsal. I think walk throughs are very important and everyone is so much more confident and relaxed on the wedding day.

Wishing you two decades of happiness!

Pat
