So, you’re getting married! What kind of wedding ceremony do you want?
Non-traditional, non-religious Traditional, with religious undertones LGBT ceremony Re-commitment ceremony Intercultural with a traditional custom added Super short ~ let’s get the party started!
Every couple has a unique story. No matter what kind of ceremony you want, my goal at Seattle Wedding Officiants is to help you tell your story just the way you want to on your special day. I will help you decide what you want your ceremony to look and feel like—and then take you through the steps to make it happen—just the way you dreamed it would.

I’ve married all kinds of couples in lots of different settings: multi-faith, traditional Christian, civil, LGBT, non-denominational ceremonies and more. My passion is helping couples celebrate their love with a ceremony that they and their guests will remember: turning an ordinary wedding ceremony into the extraordinary. In addition, I have officiated weddings at a variety of locations: private homes, beaches and city parks, hotels and mansions. I even joined a couple and their friends on a 3-mile hike to Tiger Mountain, Issaquah where the couple exchanged vows overlooking the Issaquah valley below (see photo below). I am always open to exploring new locations of your choice and welcome new requests!

What makes me different? The couples I have married tell me that I:
Helped them feel less overwhelmed about planning the most important event of their lives Was generous with my advice in their free consultation Am patient and flexible Am the “queen of organizing” so no detail gets forgotten Kept them calm and focused during the ceremony Kept their wedding guests engaged, so they could focus on each other on their wedding day Am sensitive and had a calming influence on the bride and groom’s pre-wedding jitters
I will help you craft a perfect ceremony and assist with the details so you can focus on the joy and happiness on your special day.

Working with Elaine was wonderful! Elaine is professional and friendly, she's passionate about what she does and really knows her stuff. I am so, so glad that we hired her to officiate our wedding. She walked us through the process of creating/writing our ceremony, and was very helpful in answering questions, providing ideas, etc. At the rehearsal, she was efficient and professional, and made the process a breeze for us all. The wedding ceremony could not have gone better. I received multiple compliments from our guests on her officiating... she did a fantastic job! We could not have been happier with Elaine and her services.

Elaine was amazing! She was super friendly and helpful and gave us lots of ideas for the wedding ceremony, guiding us through every step of the design. She was extremely flexible, able to meet with us even the one time we messed up and came to the meeting way too early - a whole week early! She's also a notary, and took care of the marriage license application + submission process for us, taking a whole load off our back.

Elaine is great!! Not only was she attentive to all of the minor details that we needed to be addressed, she was quick, efficient, and all with a wonderful personality. We had our ceremony at our home with only our two witnesses/friends and our two cockatoos. Our friends seemed to be more than pleased with her services and have alerted their other friends and groups of this. Tom and I couldn't be happier and would and/or will recommend Elaine to all of our friends and family who wish to "tie the knot." Thanks Elaine.

John and Thomas, thank you for the wonderful review. I had a lovely time meeting you and your friends -- and the cockatoos, of course. We had a different kind of choir in the background for the wedding :). Thank you again for inviting me to be your officiant. Congratulations on 8 years together and best wishes for many more to come!

Elaine was the best officiant that we could have asked for. She made the entire process very simple and efficient. My husband and I had never been to weddings and were completely oblivious of the planning process and marriage paperwork. Elaine did all the running around to court houses for us and had our marriage license ready at the wedding. She even submitted our forms for our marriage license within a couple days of the wedding so we had our official licenses waiting in our mailbox after our honeymoon! Not only was she terrific in that regard, she ran our ceremony rehearsal very effectively and gave a beautiful ceremony. We were able to customize our ceremony by giving information about ourselves and picking from a large list of passages for each part of the ceremony. Elaine met with us ahead of time and went over the ceremony so we were well aware of what she was planning on saying. She did a personal statement talking about our dating life and what led us to that moment which was really nice. Our family still 2 weeks later won't stop talking about what a beautiful ceremony it was! We honestly could not have been happier with her and would a hundred percent recommend her to anyone.

My husband and I chose to elope in Seattle, but had never been there before. I stumbled upon Elaine ' s website and she made it so easy for us. Elaine was able to help us choose a perfect location for us at the Goodwin Library, picked up our marriage license for us, and even made reservations for our after wedding dinner. I was amazed at the time she took to help us with our elopement and the sincerity and kindness she had for us. Everything was just perfect!

Dearest Leslie and Shelby, thank you for your wonderful review. I had so much fun working with you over the months leading up to your wedding day on March 17. There was some back and forth at the beginning trying to find you the right spot for your intimate wedding, but we did it! The Goodwin Library was perfect for you. And from the moment I met you I knew you were meant for each other and your wedding day was perfect because of that. I truly hope you come back to Seattle -- maybe for an anniversary -- because I would love to see you again! Sending lots of love to you both! Elaine

Elaine was wonderful! She is professional, attentive, thorough, and you can tell she cares about the quality of service she provides. We appreciated all the resources (ceremony samples/readings/etc.) she has, it helped us tailor or ceremony perfectly. Elaine made us feel special every meeting we had with her, especially on our wedding day.

We wanted a sweet/small intimate wedding in West Seattle which was very important to us, but we had nothing else figured out. So I found Elaine online and gave her a call and to see if she was available and willing to officiate a tiny wedding in the middle of November and that we essentially had nothing else decided. Immediately upon talking with her she set my mind at ease. She is cool and professional and she has a true passion for this. She treated my wedding wishes with as much respect and importance as any big huge fairy tale wedding. Plus! She did EVERYTHING which was so nice for us because we work full time, she even helped us write our vows. She absolutely made our wedding exactly what we wanted simple and sweet without any stress what's so ever. Our few guests even commented how cool and nice she was and asked how I found her. Elaine is a truly awesome person and I highly recommend her!

Amie and Tony, thank you so much for your lovely review. Every wedding I officiate, every couple I meet with is important to me and you articulated how I feel from my viewpoint. I loved meeting with you in my old neighborhood of West Seattle and coming up with an idea for your outdoor November wedding. And the fact that we discovered there were heart-shaped stones in the fireplace shelter was such a bonus :) I am so happy we found each other and have a wonderful new year!

Dearest Carina and Alex, I absolutely adored meeting and working with you. Your situation was quite unique due to the fact that you live on the other side of the pond so to speak. It was fun being part of your little woodland wedding at the Arboretum in the fall. That was a first for me -- seeing the Arboretum in the fall with all the amazing colors -- and I will always remember you in your little grove with Carina signing to Alex each time I pass through. I have lovely memories of your wedding and both of you and wish you a very happy new year!

When we first met Elaine we really didn't have a clear idea of what we wanted to do for our ceremony. Elaine was extremely understanding and just listened to us as we offered up our ideas. She then offered up her "notebook" of different ceremonies, readings, poems, etc. which is a veritable treasure trove of ideas. Because of that, we were able to quickly pick and choose the things we liked and didn't like and we were able to put together a ceremony we were very excited about. After that Elaine was a star....helping guide us, offer refinements and ultimately create a ceremony that we all thought would be beautiful. From there she took the reins and guided us all the way through the rehearsal, the ceremony, and the final wrapup with all the official paperwork. She was flexible and accommodating, even when we wanted to make a change to the processional moments before we actually walked down the aisle!!!!!...as well as the quick switch to "live" audio that we had to make to when our wireless microphone decided to go on the fritz during the ceremony. She was ever the consummate professional and we could not have been more pleased with how everything turned out.

We highly recommend her to anyone that is planning a marriage ceremony. She is thoughtful, deliberative, creative, flexible, funny, down to earth and real. Bottom line.........we LOVE her!!!!!! You cant possibly go wrong with hiring Elaine as the officiant for your ceremony.

Stan and Patty, WOW! Thank you so much for sharing your experience with me in this lovely review. You know, it's not just a ceremony to me and from your review, you got that. I really do love pushing my sleeves up and getting involved in any and all ways I can to make the experience a good one. Having said that, I had so much fun working with you, meeting your "Berner" and especially seeing how happy you and Patty were on your wedding day. By the way, when I walked into the room and saw Patty in her dress, time stood still for me. What a beautiful bride. And your brown tux was awesome too, Stan! It was a very memorable wedding for me because of both of you. Thank you so much for inviting me to share your day with you. And your glass sculpture looks beautiful. I can't wait to share that unique idea with future couples. Thank you for introducing me to that! Happy New Year, Stan and Patty!

After waiting 36 years to be able to marry the man that I have spent my entire adult life with, I wanted someone who would understand how important this was to the both of us. Elaine Way was just that person! What a sweetheart. I just knew in my heart, after talking to her and reading her reviews, that she believed in love, and that same sex couples had every right to marry the person they loved. Our wedding was a small affair, but she took the same interest as if it were a huge lavish affair. My guests loved her warmth and kindness and wondered where did we find her. Gay marriage is still a new concept and even my liberal straight friends were concerned that we would have difficulties finding a kinderd soul to officiate our wedding instead of going to city hall. Well, we found her, and so should you. Chris and Jeff

We decided to 'tie the knot' when we had a Seattle trip planned.- we only had about two months to plan. Fortunately we found Elaine who was able to come over to our rental house on very short notice and do the ceremony. Elaine made everything so easy - she assisted us with the paperwork, wrote up some vows that we could use if we wanted or we could edit them (or even use our own). Elaine made it so we could focus on each other and the ceremony was easy. Thanks for everything!

Elaine made everything so easy - she assisted us with the paperwork, wrote up some vows that we could use if we wanted or we could edit them (or even use our own). Elaine made it so we could focus on each other and the ceremony was easy. Thanks for everything! Read less

My partner and I had already planned a trip to the Pacific Northwest to celebrate a big anniversary. Soon after last summer's SCOTUS decision on same-sex marriage, and the Federal government's subsequent announcement regarding recognition, we decided that marriage was finally in the cards. We planned our Seattle wedding from 2,000 miles away, on somewhat short notice, via the internet and phone conversations. After an exhaustive online search for the "right" officiant, we narrowed our search down to four. Our wishes included a specific date, the need to find an appropriate venue (in an unfamiliar city), and a wish for it to be at once meaningful, celebratory and simple. After speaking with four potential officiants, Elaine emerged as the obvious choice. She truly listened, offered excellent ideas that were in line with our wishes, was efficient and businesslike - but still warm and caring, and in the end pulled it all together. We had a perfect day! Thank you, Elaine! John and Ken

My husband and I needed an officiant for our recent wedding, and Elaine was a great fit! She was extremely attentive and patient in helping us to create the perfect ceremony, not to mention the fact that she took care of the bulk of the marriage paperwork for us. Really helpful with suggestions for other vendors as well. Overall, an absolute pleasure to work with- would recommend her to anyone!

In our search for an officiant with extensive experience with performing ceremonies on the observation deck of the Space Needle, we were SO fortunate to find Elaine. After our first Skype conversation we covered all the aspects of the ceremony and different options and just knew Elaine was a perfect match for us. She is very friendly, respectful, caring, supportive and made us feel very comfortable moving forward. Considering we are Oregon residents and had plans to travel to the State of Washington for our ceremony, we were able to do all of our planning via Skype and E-Mail. My now-husband was a part of the conversation and we talked through all aspects of the ceremony. She had great advice not only for the ceremony, but also for the location, cake/flowers and reception dining establishments. She made the process of creating the ceremony very personal and special for us by encouraging our ideas. On our wedding day, she was at the venue on time and ready to go. She did an amazing job during the ceremony and it all went exactly as we discussed and planned (and then some). Elaines's voice and manner is very soothing and level. We REALLY enjoyed working with Elaine through all of the aspects of the ceremony and would highly and enthusiastically recommend her to officiate your wedding!

Elaine was an amazing officiant for our wedding! Prior to booking her services, we sat down and she discussed any concerns or ideas we had for our wedding. On the day of our rehearsal, she was very professional and coordinated with both our wedding planner and the hotel event planner. She was very patient and adjusted the ceremony with last minute changes. On the day of our wedding, Elaine showed up early with all of our paperwork and created a very intimate and personal ceremony for my husband and I. The best part was that Elaine submitted our paperwork to the city and guided us to getting our marriage certificate and instructions on name changes. My husband and I highly recommend Elaine!

Elaine was great, she really helped us iron out all the details of our ceremony that we hadn't thought of. She provided us with a packet that helped us customize our ceremony and gave us a ton of information to help make our guests' experience the best it could be. She was always available for questions and kept in touch to make sure we stayed on schedule. Both of our families were very impressed with our simple ceremony. We certainly couldn't have done it without such a helpful, professional, and personable officiant like Elaine.

Elaine was a very professional and energetic officiant to work with. She had a lot of ideas from how to pick what was said during the ceremony, gave examples of possible rituals, and helped us pick out a venue for the reception that fit within our budget. I think we did our wedding quick and easy compared to most people might, but we still managed to have a beautiful outdoor garden ceremony that was a memorable event indeed! Elaine's wedding packet helped a lot and she did a great job!

Elaine Way was and is wonderful to work with. My wife, Jackie, and I first contacted Elaine to be our backup officiant as my sister was going to be performing our ceremony originally. She was more than happy to fill that role for us and was completely supportive of our attempt to keep it a family affair. We ultimately made the decision to hire Elaine to perform our service as we felt it would be too hard on my sister to be a bridesmaid AND officiate a wedding ceremony. We met with Elaine for the first time and liked her instantly. She supported every idea that we had. She made our lives easy when it came to handling all of the marriage paperwork. Elaine conducted our rehearsal the day prior to our wedding and did an outstanding job with the time we had and all of the people she was meeting for the first time. I think the best thing she did for us was on our wedding day. She helped keep Jackie calm and eased her nerves and she was worried, as most brides are, with everything being perfect. Unfortunately that day at that particular time there was a car accident that caused traffic issues and many of our guests to be late. Elaine graciously delayed the ceremony in order to wait for as many of our guests to arrive. I didn't expect that at all but I was and still am completely grateful for her decision to do that. We are very happy with every service Elaine provided and offered. I would, and coincidentally already have, recommended her and her services to friends and co-workers. She is fully supportive, comforting, a good listener and as she always says, always available for questions via phone, email, text or whatever method is the new fad at the time. Thank you so much for such a wonderful year of working together and such a wonderful service. As far as Jackie and I are concerned, you are second to none, the gold standard, the best, or whatever figure of speech you wish to use. ;) Sincerely, Zane & Jackie Smith

Zane and Jackie, thank you for such a glowing review. I thoroughly enjoyed working with you for the year leading up to your wedding. Frankly, I loved working with such an organized couple and it was pure pleasure making your vision a reality. As far as traffic goes....things definitely happen at all weddings and traffic is one of the worse. We were a team on that one...you helped me keep your guests calm by being able to delay things a bit and then making the decision to go forward when it was time. All in all, I had a great time with you and your family. And don't forget, the Celtic hand fasting ceremony is still an offer for your one-year anniversary! Best wishes, Elaine

Although our wedding was simple, we planned it long-distance which can make things more challenging. From filing the paperwork ahead of time to the big day, Elaine was professional and a joy to work with. Although most of our communication was via email and by phone, we never felt like we were on her "back burner." My husband and I particularly appreciated the many resources she was able to share with us in planning our event. She provided sample programs, vows, blessings, pronouncements, readings etc. via email. Those resources made it so much easier for us to craft our wedding ceremony! Whether you are planning a religious ceremony or a civil one, Elaine is flexible enough to meet your needs. She exudes confidence and brings a wealth of experience to the table. Our wedding couldn't have been the success it was without her!

Out of all of the vendors we had, Elaine was the only vendor that gave us a positive experience despite drastic changes in our wedding plans. From the moment we had our initial consultation to the day of our wedding, Elaine was supportive and flexible to our needs.

You see, my wife and I had a decent sized wedding planned and ready to go. Long story short, stuff happened, and we had to scale back significantly. Like our lives, it was on the fly, unplanned, and chaotic at times, but Elaine was there and with us 100% of the way.

We would rate her 6/5 in all categories if we could and we sure as heck would recommend Elaine 110%.

We would rate her 6/5 in all categories if we could and we sure as heck would recommend Elaine 110%.

Justin and Chisa, you made my day with this wonderful review. Because you both were so easy going and sweet, the changes that came up were such a tiny bump in the road....not even a bump in the road. You were wonderful to work with and I am honored that you chose me to officiate your lovely wedding with the green boat shoes! Lots of love to both of you!

We loved our wedding officiant, Elaine from the first time we met her. She was the first officiant we interviewed, and after we talked to her, we cancelled the other appointments. She was always available to meet during wedding planning. She worked with us to find words to tailor our wedding to reflect our 22-year relationship that predated our marriage and to include our 16-year-old in the ceremony. She was very accommodating of our wishes. During the ceremony, she was poised and relaxed, which helped us relax, as she helped us with little stage directions. Many of our guests told us how much they liked her, and how much the ceremony reflected us.

Elaine made our wedding as beautiful and special as we had hoped. She was super easy to work with, very flexible with working out the details of a wedding, and had no problem meeting us in our neighborhood to plan the event. She walked us through all the necessary steps for obtaining the license, and took care of as much of the process as she was able so that we could concentrate on the ceremony. Her professionalism made everyone comfortable on the day of the wedding, and it was clear throughout the planning and during the event that she takes great joy in her work. We can't thank Elaine enough for starting our happy marriage on the best note possible!

Elaine was a lifesaver for my last minute elopement. My husband and I were both coming into Washington State from out of town - him from the East Coast and me from South America. Elaine communicated with us through email and Skype, offering many suggestions for us to build a personalized wedding ceremony, making it truly unique to us. As our time in town was limited, she took care of our wedding license, confirming it was received, picking it up when ready, filing the paperwork afterward, and sending us official copies in the mail. She also found our amazing photographer, ensuring we had beautiful photographs to remember our day. Elaine was not just an officiant, she was a wedding planner! She truly went above and beyond.

Elaine was wonderful to work with and the service she provided went above and beyond what we were expecting. After hearing why the day before Christmas was so important to my fiancee and I (4th year anniversary of the day we first met), Elaine agreed to perform our marriage ceremony on Christmas eve! Not expecting anyone would accept on such short notice (the week before), we had nothing planned. Elaine took care of everything...from suggesting a venue to writing our vows. Our little ceremony, on the 73rd floor of the Columbia Tower in down town Seattle, could not have been more perfect. Thank you so much Elaine! - Angel and Carrel A.

Elaine was fantastic! She was very sweet and wanted to know our whole love story. We left our first meeting feeling much more at ease and excited (we were so nervous before meeting her!) She is very polite and professional. She sent me a ton of example to flip through and recognizing the control freak that I am- she basically handed over the reigns and let me piece the ceremony together myself. She was totally there for me if I needed it and I knew I could ask for help, but I am very passionate about writing and my then fiance, so it was fun and easy for me to do. She did help me out with a couple small revisions that smoothed out my rough draft however. Right before the ceremony I did get hit with a serious "Everything is getting off plan!" moment (did I mention I'm a control freak?) Elaine had all the best intentions of calming me down... I decided on a catching my breath by myself for a second.. works best for me, but I really appreciate her efforts. All in all, the ceremony was beautiful and she did a great job! Thanks again Elaine!

Lynn and Christopher, Thank you for your review. I enjoyed working with you very much and seeing the love between the two of you and your beautiful little girl. It really shows when two people click and it is always such a great honor that I have been chosen to "make it legal". I have to say I had a moment myself when I realized I had left the paperwork at your father's office from the rehearsal the night before. I appreciate your patience and understanding with that process. I'm glad I was able to provide my own certificate for you to sign and then follow-up with you the next day while you were still in the city. Totally my fault for forgetting the envelope in the excitement from the night before and you were both very gracious about the matter. Lynn and Christopher, you did such a fantastic job of knowing just what you wanted at your wedding, from the winter decorations to your photographer. The entire evening had your "touch" all over it and I'm grateful that I got to be a part of your very special winter wedding. Best wishes for the new year!

Elaine helped me marry my best friend on Saturday, December 1st, 2012 at the Salish Lodge & Spa. From the moment we met Elaine, she felt like 'family', both Joe and I feel so blessed to have met her. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful, heartfelt and touching ceremony. All the little details she made were just perfect! Any time I needed Elaine whether by phone or email she was there in a heartbeat. I was a nervous and anxious bride wanting every little detail to be perfect (as women do). Out of the many things I love about Elaine, the thing I value most is that she held our ceremony in the palm of her hand and delivered it in a way that everyone in that room felt the love...I don't think there was a dry eye in the house! Elaine was not only knowledgeable but she was creative and thought of fun outside of the box ideas. If you are looking for a truly unique ceremony and an experience that people will talk about for a lifetime you need to choose Elaine! Joe and I feel so grateful and lucky to know Elaine. With much love and Thanks! Rosa & Joe. xoxo

Elaine helped us thought the marriage license process, how to obtain the certificate after and all the details for the wedding. She emailed and called back almost instantly every time. She made our ceremony fit us and although our family wasn't there, the ceremony itself was perfect. My mother even arranged for Elaine to get us flowers and a small wedding cake. It was just wonderful. We got married on the top of the Seattle spaceneedle and it was extremely memorable. With Elaine's help, I was stress free and everything happened perfectly.

Elaine was such a pleasure and a joy and a wonderful part of my special day. She ran everything very professionally and really helped to manage the process, especially due to the fact that my wedding was a small non-traditional event. We felt very at ease with Elaine from the moment we met her and knew she was the right person for our wedding ceremony. She was also great at recommending vendors for our event, who turned out to be both be very economical as well as professional.
Thanks Elaine!!

Debbie and Greg, thank you for the wonderful review. I really enjoyed your wedding at the Edgewater and getting to know your family. I had fun getting to know you and being able to write something personal that added some fun to your ceremony. As an added bonus we share the love of our canine companions and I hope we can have a "play date" this summer with the boys -- oh, and girl ;)

What a blessing to have Elaine be our Officiant at our August 17th Wedding. Elaine is amazing and truly has your best interest at heart and makes sure that your wedding is exactly that "YOUR WEDDING".

Our ceremony was a combination of my husband, me and Elaine -she made great suggestions and was so helpful to make sure it flowed and was everything we wanted and more.

It was over 95 degrees that day and in Seattle, that is HOT! Elaine didn't even let it phase her and was so professional (even when we were all sweating) and didn't let the heat get the best of us!

Elaine made our entire wedding party feel important and special and truly made our part simple and easy. I recommend Elaine for anyone's wedding - "I DO"!

There were a few nervous moments there ;) Thank you again, and I look forward to continuing our relationship as friends in Washington state!

Elaine provided us with such a beautiful ceremony! Her options in creating our own personal ceremony really allowed us to make our ceremony perfect for us, and it was so moving. She also did a great job of projecting her voice so that guests could hear her.

She was great with responding to emails, and she was very accommodating and drove out to see me for our first meeting. She was very friendly and provided plenty of information.

Elaine was also very prompt with mailing in our marriage license, and keeping us in the loop of what the next steps were to receive our marriage license.

Brianna and Ryan, I loved being a part of your amazing day. It was my first time to Genesis Farms and it was a beautiful backdrop for your outdoor summer wedding. I loved your colors, and the doves flying over as you kissed were a sweet surprise for everyone! You both beamed with love as we went through the ceremony from the Greeting to the Ring Exchange to the Kiss! I wish you both much love and adventure in your new home!

She offered to help me with what ever I needed and was very responsive to my messages. She had multiple wedding ceremonies to choose from. I was able to read through her ceremony packet and choose the messages I wanted to convey to our family, friend’s, and my husband. She put a lot of heart into what she said in her ceremony and I could tell she was very passionate about her job as a Wedding Officiant. I would definitely recommend her!

My husband and I decided we wanted to have a small, private wedding. We eloped :)

I called a few different officiants. Elaine was the first person to get back with me. I wasn't sure what to expect in pulling all of this together last minute. Maybe this isn't important to other people, but I needed an officiant with a nice voice. At first, I was a little disappointed the others got back with me too late. Elaine charges a little bit more than other officiants.

I don't know what to say except that meeting Elaine put everything to ease. The extra money we spent was MORE than just "worth it." She was flexible, patient, consistent, made herself available for communication all the time.. Her presence was wonderful and I LOVED her speaking voice! ha ha ha! That meant a lot to me. The way a person presents us as husband and wife, the way they sound and carry themselves, is important.

Elaine was welcoming, confident and just... everything we needed. She did it in one week. She was amazing. She had EVERYTHING ready for us. She made it simple and for two people about to marry each other: that was what we needed.

You cannot go wrong with her. We included a lot of things and me a few last minute changes.. She did beautifully with all of this. I can't say enough about Elaine :)

Brandon and Emily ~ After having known you both for so many years as a couple and then to have you ask me to officiate your wedding was such an honor. It was a blustery day down at Golden Gardens that day but it didn't matter because you two were so happy and really ready to make a life-long commitment to each other. I had a great time -- even tho I had to wear ski gloves because it was so cold ;). I look forward to seeing you both in the years to come....who knows ~ maybe I'll do a vow renewal for you someday? Thank you again for including me in your wedding day!

We had a nautical themed wedding and she arranged for a cake with our last name spellled out in signal flags on top. It came out fantastic and was tasty too. She commanded the room at the ceremony and was a fantastic public speaker. I had many complements from our friends and family about her. She was recomended by a friend and I would recommend her to any one. She was a great listener and had good ideas.

We had the most unique, private ceremony in our hotel room above the city with the Space Needle in the background. It was perfect and special. We live in California now, but my home was and will always be Seattle. My husband surprised me with his proposal and a private car train ride to Seattle (something I had always wanted to do). If we were to do it all over again, or renew, we would definitely call Elaine. She went out of her way to make everything perfect, even handling some extra details for us not even related to the wedding. Thank you, Elaine. You are a special person:) Lou and Julie Woltjer

I would recommend Elaine to any couple! I was a “long distance” bride, living in Missouri and marrying in Seattle. While checking the Internet for an officiant, I saw Elaine’s website with her reasonable rates and sent her a note. The absolute first thing I loved about her was her immediate enthusiastic response to my email. Some other officiants got back to me a week later! And this, above all, had me hooked to contract her services sight unseen. During that stressful time, I didn't want to worry about hunting down my officiant if I had a question! And this never changed with Elaine. No matter that she already “had” my business, she continued to be in instant contact with me about everything and anything whenever I needed it before and after the wedding. Elaine was professional and helpful in every way. I was able to coordinate everything via email or phone without a hitch. She advised me as to how to get a marriage license from out of state, had great venue ideas on her website, etc. She was also very helpful and sensitive with writing the marriage vows. My husband and I were both married before and there was an issue of blending families. The vows needed to customized and sensitive to previous marriages because of the children. Words like “My one true love forever” just didn’t seem right at a third wedding! Elaine suggested vows, yet left the rewriting completely to me. I tweaked and composed what I wanted. She helped with making suggestions on my final edit and the finished product was exactly what we wanted. She was on time, appropriately (beautifully) dressed for the small brunch wedding, friendly, smiling and made everyone feel comfortable with a light, yet serious manner befitting a life changing ceremony. As a final note: I may have been enticed by her reasonable and fair price, but I stayed because she is truly responsive, caring and loves what she does!

She was on time, appropriately (beautifully) dressed for the small brunch wedding, friendly, smiling and made everyone feel comfortable with a light, yet serious manner befitting a life changing ceremony. As a final note: I may have been enticed by her reasonable and fair price, but I stayed because she is truly responsive, caring and loves what she does! Read less

Thank you for the lovely review. I remember was how lovely you both were during your sunset wedding. Nancy, you have stunning eyes and as you looked at Tom during the ceremony as the sun was setting behind us there was no where else I wanted to be. I experienced such joy being your officiant. I wish you years and years of happiness and joy! Lovingly, Elaine

Elaine delivered the most heart-warming and beautiful ceremony for us. She had a great list of sample ceremonies for us to choose from and even wrote a funny and touching personal statement about how Matt and I met and fell in love. She was very flexible and easy to work with. I had guests coming up all night saying that the ceremony was beautiful and personal. I wanted something that really reflected us as a couple, not something you could hear at just any wedding, and boy did Elaine deliver! The best part is that she goes to the court house to get all the paperwork for your marriage license for you so its just one thing as a busy bride that doesn't have to worry about. She is fantastic!

Wedding planning sucks. Elaine made things easy.

From day one, she was organized. She had a game plan. She comes prepared, she anticipates your questions, and has answers to all of them, she's flexible, and most importantly... she's a professional.

The ceremony Elaine conducted was beautiful, personal, timely, and everything we asked for. On top of all that, she's a great value. She handles all the paperwork, files the marriage application, and costs less than her competitors.

To anyone engaged, planning the wedding, do yourself a favor and make as much of it easy on yourself. Start with Elaine as your officiant.

My husband and I had our large ceremony in Florida, but wanted to do a second small ceremony back home in Seattle to process the legal paperwork. Elaine was very responsive and allowed us to carry through the ceremony with short notice so we could perform it on one of Seattle's unseasonably nice days in mid Spring. She had a lot of good suggestions, was accommodating to our requests for location, and conducted a ceremony appropriate to our desires. There were no issues and I would recommend her highly to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding.

From the very start, Elaine was very responsive and organized. One of the things that really impressed us in the first meeting was the packet of information she provided with samples of the ceremony, license process, etc. We did the cut/paste/editing from her sample ceremony components, but she had more than enough choices that we still felt like our compilation was personal. Her presence/presentation style was warm, yet formal...exactly what we were looking for. Very happy bride and groom and very complimentary guests.

We flew to Seattle for a vacation and decided to get married while there to take advantage of Marriage Equality that Michigan does not recognize. Even though we were miles away, once we contacted Elaine and made arrangements for her to officiate our wedding, we were off and running. Elaine is a wonderful person, she blended in well with our personalities and family. She provided sample ceremony readings to get us started as we wrote our own vows. We had our ceremony in Port Orchard, WA at the house we rented. It was a perfect day despite the rain. Elaine, you are awesome!

When we told Elaine we wanted to get married in kayaks on Lake Washington, we weren't sure what to expect. But her enthusiasm was immediate. She even offered to visit the location herself and send us pictures (we're not from Seattle) so that we could envision the ceremony more clearly and make plans accordingly. When the day rolled around and it turned out to be pouring rain, she didn't back out, but willingly rowed out with us to perform the ceremony of our dreams. The only reason this isn't a perfect 5-star review is that at one point it took her some extra time to get back to us about our draft ceremony. Still, Elaine is an amazing wedding officiant and we would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone thinking about getting married in Seattle.

Al & Teya, I am concerned that you did not have an exceptional experience with me & I wish to respond to your review. I was so excited to have our first Skype call with you & Teya from Lithuania. From that moment on I realized that attention to detail would be important due to the distance between us. When you told me about your interest in having a kayaking wedding on Lake Union I knew right away how to handle it because I am a native of Seattle & have done that exact trip many times before. After spending about an hour at Foster Island, taking pictures and forwarding ideas to you (at no additional charge to you) I was fairly certain we had our itinerary worked out. But as the day got closer & the weather started to change I wasn't so sure. I believe the lapse in communication occurred while you were traveling from Lithuania to California & then to Seattle for the wedding. It was a hectic time trying to coordinate this unique wedding with all the traveling you & Teya were doing -- plus the the itinerary was changing by the day due to the weather forecast. I continued talking to the kayak folks, however, regarding our wishes. We finally got it all set up until the morning of your wedding day when the owner said, "No way! We are closed and I'm not letting anyone go out in this weather." We persevered, however, & talked the owner into making it happen. It was really fun for me to choose a single kayak while everyone else was in doubles. That meant extra work for me, but I am an outdoorsy gal so took the challenge on with enthusiasm. We went out for about 10 minutes, circled around & came back to form a circle & have your ceremony while your family looked on from the shore. I even included a wine box & love letter ceremony to make it fun! Remember, you tossed the key into the lake? I do apologize if you feel there was a delay in our ceremony communication. I'm just grateful we got you & Teya on the lake for your dream Wedding. Happy New Year!

Elaine was very helpful on guiding us to prepare for the ceremony. Since most people never had a wedding ceremony before, having a experienced officiant is just so important. Elaine did her job properly and with enthusiasm. I would definitely recommend her to our friends.

Elaine was great – I would recommend her to anyone looking for a thoughtful, warm, caring, and personal ceremony at your wedding! We had only a few weeks to put together a legal ceremony with only very close family and friends and Elaine made it extremely special. Together she helped us write out entire wedding ceremony, personalizing each piece to our needs and wants as we went along. We couldn’t have asked for a more intimate setting and a genuine message delivered about our love and relationship in such a meaningful way. Elaine was very responsive, attentive, professional, and caring as she helped us plan for our big day. I couldn’t have asked for someone better!

Elaine was a great wedding officiant. She was quite flexible, as our wedding venue was not really planned. We had a small wedding party, and all of us met in Olympic Park and wandered for a bit before finding the perfect spot near the water. She was also very organized with the paperwork and helpful with any questions we had.

Elaine did an awesome job. You can tell this is where her heart is! From being out of town my husband and I were skeptical we would find an officiant that we could really relate with and just feel as if this person was there as part of our wedding and just not a weird or awkward someone we didn't know at all. Even though we only met a couple times, she made us feel comfortable, and made our mind at ease that our wedding day would be beautiful, and easy flowing. She was always quick to respond and also willing to call via skype which was very helpful for us! Elaine has a ton of different options for the ceremony so you can through all those options to make your ceremony prefect for yourselves, and she is great with throwing out ideas to make it just right. One more thing that we really liked was that she knows so many different people in the wedding field, we found our musician through her and he was also fantastic. Thank you Elanie for helping us make our wedding day memorable!

Thank you for your review Christina and Jason. Your wedding at the Weyerhaeuser Mansion in Tacoma was so beautiful. The cake that your friend made was stunning. Your wedding in the outdoor garden and beautiful dinner setting on the outdoor patio was lovely. I loved how your guests were able to move right from the ceremony to the cocktail hour in the garden, which was set with a beautiful selection of seafood and beverages. I even got some amazing pictures of Mt. Rainier from the garden. I enjoyed working with you to create a memorable ceremony. It was memorable for me as well! Thank you again for your review.
