Do you want a beautiful, meaningful ceremony "that's totally us," but don’t know where to start?

Do you want a personal ceremony that uniquely reflects who you are and what you mean to each other.

Do you want something special, but feel daunted by all the possibilities.?

You are thoughtful, deeply in love, and know what works for you. You’ve never planned a ceremony before, and you’re planning your wedding in the midst of already busy lives.

You are going into marriage with your eyes open and know that life offers both joys and challenges. You would like your ceremony to help support you through it all.

As a caring, experienced professional officiant, I love walking couples like you through the process of co-creating a personal, meaningful ceremony with your love story at the center.

I officiate weddings throughout the Willamette Valley--including Salem, Eugene, Corvallis, and Albany, the Central Oregon Coast, and points in between.

I take the time to get to know you, hear your story, and listen to what's important to you.

Together, we will create a custom ceremony that includes traditions that are important to you, and maybe even traditions and ideas that are completely new to you! The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

I will guide you through a thoughtful process that helps you prepare for marriage, one of the biggest rites of passage in your lives. You will feel more ready to make a loving commitment to your life partner with your community as witness.

When the day of your event comes, I'll be there as a calm, caring presence to take you into the next step of your journey together.

Contact me through the contact form on the right for a free consultation, and we'll explore what's possible if we work together!

I look forward to hearing from you soon! Read less

Having Susan Sanford marry us was one of the best decisions we've ever made.

Every inch a delightful professional. She was exceedingly helpful & organized, yet possessed great charm, grace, kindness, competence, calm, wonderful energy & awesome vibes. Superb vows added pure joy for us. Her willingness to accommodate our needs & desires was appreciated beyond measure. Susan's "Quality of Service, Responsiveness, Professionalism, Value & Flexibility" deserve ratings of 10 on scales of 1 to 5!!

We highly recommend her services.

Susan did a beautiful job of telling our story and crafting a ceremony that fit our relationship and personalities. After meeting with her twice for a couple of hours each, she had a very good idea of our desires and style for the wedding. The manner in which she went about developing the the ceremony was very intimate and professional, including us in every step of the decision making process. She managed to exceed our expectations in crafting a ceremony that walked the line between laughter and tears, and we adored it. The part that really hit home for us was the telling of our story, which made the ceremony much more intimate and engaging for the guests. I will definitely be recommending her services!

Susan was amazing! She carefully planned a beautiful ceremony and made it very personal. We heard many compliments from our guests and a lot of people said it was one of the prettiest wedding ceremonies they've been to! Working with her prior the event was also very easy and pleasant. She was reliable, easy to reach, and open for any suggestions. The ceremony was short but super meaningful and sweet.
THANK YOU Susan!!

The perfect balance of professionalism and personality. Susan was amazing to work with, traveling to meet us on a schedule that worked for our busy family, taking so much time to get to know us, establishing a real feeling of trust, and exploring all kinds of beautiful ideas for our ceremony. Clearly quite experienced, with a virtual catalogue of poems, prayers, ceremonies, vows and rituals, Susan was able to weave our story into something more than we'd even imagined. The way she spoke , you would have thought she'd known us for years. She really brought a sense of who we are, and a feeling of intimacy, to our special day. Simplicity. Elegance. Warmth. We are so grateful we found her.

I'm so moved by your words, Heather. It was such a delight to work with you and Rebekah and celebrate your special love in your ceremony. Loved watching your 4-year-old superhero sons get into throwing stone blessings into the sea!

Susan is absolutely amazing! She immediately understood who we were, our connection, and was able to put together a concise and incredibly meaningful ceremony. We met with her twice in person and exchanged many emails to get just the right flavor and mix of heartfelt (but not sappy) sentiments, tradition, content and humor. She was able to seamlessly ingrate our story as a couple, with Buddhist and non-denominational wedding vows, poetry, and we loved her suggestion for a hand fasting ceremony! We got many compliments on our wedding ceremony from guests!

Susan is very pleasant, gracious, funny, calm, professional, pushed us to meet deadlines when we needed it, knew how to edit with finesse, and was full of suggestions! We suspect she is wonderful resource for any type of wedding celebration.

We would highly recommend Susan, her fee is very reasonable for her exceptional level of attention and caring. Don't hesitate, book her as soon as possible! :)

Susan was wonderful to work with and made the whole process very easy. She took the time to get to know our personal history and shared special things about us during the ceremony that really captured us as a couple. We felt like we had a unique story to tell from our 10 years together as a family and she managed to get it perfect. Not only that, but she also made sure to include our 2 children which was very important to both of us.

I had numerous guests come up to me at the reception and tell me how much they enjoyed the ceremony. That they enjoyed how personal it was and how well it fit both of us.

She was referred to us through a guest at a different wedding she did and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Susan to anyone in turn. Trust me, you wouldn't regret it!! I truly believe she does an amazing job!

We are so grateful that we found Susan to officiate our wedding. She crafted such a memorable, thoughtful ceremony. The ceremony couldn't have been more perfect. In particular, we loved the way that Susan told our story and incorporated it into the ceremony. Every ceremony Susan performs is customized to the unique needs/desires of the couple. She helped with the whole planning process, providing lots of options for different parts of the ceremony and meeting with us via Skype several times. It was clear that she really wanted to get to know us, which we really appreciated. Susan really was truly amazing in every possible way!

My wife and I weren't in Oregon for the majority of our wedding planning. Susan was able to video chat with us and emailed us tons of information, suggestions, comments, and everything else that we would need to make our ceremony fun and personal. Susan did an amazing job at tying everything together and giving us a ceremony that we loved and will remember forever. She was flexible in rehearsal time and planning as well as fair in pricing.
