I have been in the wedding/hospitality industry for 35 years (mostly Seattle) and have enjoyed working with clients in the Gig Harbor, Kitsap Peninsula and Tacoma areas for the past 10 years. The first 30 years of this very fun and passionate career was focused on catering and event planning. I know how brides think! It has been my great pleasure in the last 5 years to help write wedding vows and really LISTEN to what my bride and groom and their families want for their special day. On the wedding day, my most two important people are the ones that I share the alter with and help create a lasting memory and life!

I found Leslie on WeddingWire in my search for a flexible and affordable person to perform our nonreligious, but unique and spiritual wedding. We connected immediately with Leslie. She is a sweet and genuine person. We didn't want a standard ceremony - we wanted to incorporate Native American and Buddhist teachings regarding nature and love, etc, and it took us a while to figure out how we wanted our ceremony to go. Leslie was very patient and adaptable (I didn't get the final ceremony script to her until the night before the rehearsal dinner!), and was very responsive whenever I asked for her for input. Leslie was the perfect match for getting our message across on our special day!

Leslie did a fantastic job! She was very prompt and flexible with changes as they came up. She did a great job providing advice and templates to work from for the ceremony intro and vows. We are not a religious couple and really appreciated that she wrote her speech leaving out any religious wording. Very impressed and highly recommended!

Working with Leslie was a true delight. She helped us choose the perfect wedding ceremony, and didn't balk at switching out passages or adding readings. We didn't want the pressure of writing our own vows, so she helped us find ones that fit exactly what we wanted to say. We had many compliments on the ceremony from our guests! Thank you, Leslie!

Leslie Englund was the perfect officiant for our Celtic-themed Tacoma wedding. Leslie was prompltly responsive to her emails, extremely flexible to meet with us whenever was convenient for our schedule, is familiar with local wedding vendors and venues, and above all else, Leslie was always patient and polite! Leslie knows weddings and was always helpful in letting my husband and me know what we needed to get done to prepare for the big day. I would recommend Leslie to anyone!

Leslie was an excellent officiant. She was very flexible and even came to my home for the rehearsal. Leslie is very professional and easy to work with. She met our demands and worked with our non-religious oriented ceremony. She gave us examples and let us rewrite the ceremony to our liking. She had worked with our DJ before and knew our caterer and florist and the whole team worked together with ease. I would definitely recommend Leslie to others who are getting married.
