I'm a former judge, and in the last six years or so, I've had the pleasure of officiating hundreds of weddings throughout Oregon and in Washington. I've officiated at very small and intimate gatherings (5 including me), to very large and formal weddings (500 plus). I've officiated at all types of venues including ballrooms, museums, hotels, vineyards, wineries, bars, formal gardens, farms, churches, beaches, parks, backyards, and living rooms. I've even had the pleasure of officiating in the State Capitol Building and believe I'm only one of two people to have had that honor.

I've also officiated at all different kinds of weddings including bi-lingual, traditional, civil, Steampunk, romantic, modern, Spanish, non-denominational Christian, theme, Seventh Day Adventist, spiritual, and Buddhist.

I have several ceremonies from which you can choose and each one is fully customizeable. I'm not a stuffy old judge-type. Rather, I'm very flexible, and I will help you to create exactly the kind of ceremony you want.

Although many people book me months in advance, I can almost always schedule ceremonies on short notice and last minute (even same day). Regardless of when your scheduling, my prices are the same and are very reasonable (typically less than half what other officiants charge).

People often ask what they should look for in an officiant. Surprisingly, you might be able to find someone that has even more competitive rates than I do and save ten or twenty bucks, but you only get married once. So, you should have it done right. My advice is to choose someone reliable and with whom you feel comfortable. You should find someone flexible that will give you the type of ceremony you want. Experience is also something that's very important. You definitely want someone who feels comfortable in front of people and who knows what he/she is doing. Finally, one thing you might not think of is that your officiant will have access to your very personal information (mothers' maiden names, dates of birth, social security numbers, etc.). This information is all contained in the marriage license. By law, your officiant has the right to keep a copy of your license. With this in mind, you certainly want someone trustworthy. Be careful - especially when shopping for officiants on the internet. I've testified before the Oregon State Legislature about this issue, and as a licensed attorney and former judge, I'm bound by strict ethical requirements. Your information is certainly safe with me.

Let me know how I can help make your special day perfect!!

Anthony was more than we could have ever asked for. We had a very small ceremony with only our immediate family. Anthony made us feel extremely comfortable on what is meant to be a very nerve-wracking day. He was professional, yet made us feel like he had known us forever!
I couldn't recommend Anthony more. He was perfect!

Anthony Behrens was the officiant for our wedding. He was amazing! He sent us different types of vows we could go with or on how to create our own and even included a run through of how to perform the ceremony. Which really helped due to we didn't have enough time to do a rehearsal. When we needed to contact him, he was really prompt and returned our messages. He was also very accommodating and flexible with our busy schedule. Thank you for everything and your assistance with filing our marriage certificate. Highly recommend!

Anthony was amazing. He worked with us before the wedding to create the perfect ceremony for us. He has a great personality and made us feel so comfortable. The ceremony was beautiful and he takes care of everything. He even directed us during the ceremony when we didn't know what to do or where to go. He is fabulous and I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Anthony for making our ceremony memorable and beautiful!

We could not of asked for a better experience with Anthony, from the first time we met with him we knew he was the right choice for us. He was punctual on the date, funny when he needed to be and all around professional. We even invited him to MC at our wedding, although he was hesitant, he was excellent and the guests loved him. If you are looking for an officiant for an upcoming wedding please do not hesitate to contact him.

Highly recommend! We are from Jacksonville, FL and decided to get married in Portland, OR. Fortunately we found Anthony during an internet search. He was easy to work with, very professional and even moved some uninvited guests out of the way (we got married in a public park). Anthony makes the process very easy, even providing many samples of vows to use or to customize if you prefer.
