So, you’re getting married! What kind of wedding ceremony do you want?
Non-traditional, non-religious Traditional, with religious undertones LGBTQ 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, LGBTQ, 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. 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 couple'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.

The vendor was awesome! Organized, polite and in charge. The wedding day is crazy and hectic and she was able to be trusted to make decisions even on details that were not in her scope of work. This made her ideal for our wedding.

Elaine was amazing. From the moment we met her, the stress of finding an officiant went out the door. She really has everything together - including sample ceremonies in every domination - AND on top of it all, she takes away all the headache of going to the courthouse to get the marriage license. Her rehearsal was quick and easy, and she reads only what you want her to say at the ceremony. I highly recommend her to any couple!

Elaine was great! We decided to have a small ceremony with our friends. We opted for a small wedding with only three months to put it together. We hired Elaine because she was able to take care of all the marriage license forms for us. In addition, she was very knowledgeable and provided tons of great advice for our wedding (including recommending a great photographer)

Thank the GODS for this wonderful woman! She is flexible, patient and there when we needed her. Our original guy decided he didn't want to do the ceremony and Elaine came in and saved the day. She really takes the time to get to know the couple, show up, does a great job and then files all the paperwork for you! We could not be more pleased to have her.

Elaine was a great wedding officiant! We booked our wedding at the last minute, and despite a busy schedule she managed to book us in on a Sunday for a simple elopement with a photographer and some family. We later changed that to a Monday due to some scheduling concerns, and she was very diligent about making sure we still had a photographer. She sent out a wedding packet with a great amount of content from which to choose. The day of the ceremony she was punctual and very positive, making it a good experience for both of us. We actually forgot our marriage license/certificate form, so we had to meet up with her the next week to get it signed. Despite being very busy, she was able to meet and to finish it all off. Highly recommended!

My husband found Elaine after googling Seattle elopement services. She contacted us the same day with her prices and services in detail. We chose her Thanks for the Memories Package with one hour of photography. Throughout the whole process she was available, attentive, and creative. She suggested food for our guests after the wedding and even a reasonable place to stay. She provided us the option to completely customize our ceremony and suggestions on writing our own vows. When we had an increase in our guest list two weeks before the wedding she was calm and efficient. She accommodated our surprise guests and found an even better venue than the one we had originally chosen. She coordinated the venue and the flowers; everything was seamless and our ceremony was more beautiful than I could have ever expected. Planning a wedding in an unknown city is difficult but working with Elaine greatly minimized my stress. Elaine was professional and a complete one stop shop for all our small wedding needs! I highly recommend her!

After viewing her reviews and Blog, choosing Elaine seemed like a no-brainer. All of her reviews were positive and exuded genuine appreciation from those who received her services. We were equally impressed by the personable vibe of her website. With it being mid-March, we had a tight deadline of getting everything together for our projected June 10th wedding date. We contacted Elaine via her website and awaited a response…

Thirty minutes later we received an email from Elaine describing her many wedding packages and confirming her availability for our projected wedding date. After a thorough review of Elaine’s email, we decided to go for the elopement package, one hour of photography (Mrs. Jen Sanders is incredible), and small flower package. Included in all packages is a free one-hour consultation (you definitely want to take advantage of this).

Although its human nature to have some form of anxiety when such a big event is quickly approaching, Elaine did a great job of checking in on us during the month/weeks/days leading up to the wedding. The only hiccup that we had was a last minute location change a few days prior to the wedding date. I accidently invited too many people, which violated the regulations listed within the park permit. Fortunately, Elaine already had a backup location in mind (Woodland Park Rose Garden).

At roughly 4:45pm on June 10, 2016, Elaine announced us as husband and wife. We honestly couldn’t be more thankful for Elaine’s assistance in making our wedding such an effortless and beautiful event for ourselves and friends. Local weddings are generally stressful, so it takes a special kind of person to gracefully execute a destination wedding. If you’re looking for a wedding officiate who is willing to go the extra mile in order to alleviate some of the stress associated with planning a wedding, contact Ms. Elaine Way!

Elaine was amazing. Every question we had was thoughtfully answered quickly. She guided us through every part of the ceremony and really made our day that much more special. She even helped me with a last minute check of my pocket square. Her experience and passion shine through, and we would absolutely recommend Elaine to anyone.

Elaine Way and her photographer – Jeanne Phinney – were fantastic!!! They were always very responsive, kind and courteous. We planned this elopement from across the country so we had to a lot of questions especially since we had never been to Seattle before. Elaine does a lot of these so she has the process down with every detail considered. I highly recommend Elaine and her team. They truly went above and beyond. We were very pleased with the whole process.
