As a Non-denominational Minister, Officiant, & Celebrant - I am dedicated to making your ceremony unique, intimate, fresh, and lovely.

I offer contemporary to traditional to whimsical ceremonies; that are Simple to Formal to Sacred; reflecting your personal style, love, and values.

Whether you want a large formal traditional celebration or a small unique ceremony.
I will support you in creating a lovely and meaningful ceremony just the way you want it in the setting of your choice.

I am very open and acknowledge all paths and journeys to love. I have performed over 700 Wedding over the past 19 years enhancing my ability to be creative, flexible, and supportive. I am highly organized, personable, inspiring, friendly, and fun.

Designer, Intimate, and Elopement Ceremonies
I offer interfaith ceremonies and same sex ceremonies. - I love to incorporate aspects of each person's faith into your Ceremony. The Designer Ceremony:
To make the Wedding designing process simple and easy - I give you many Ceremony ideas to craft your ceremony from.
I then script your entire Wedding and your Processional. At your Rehearsal we refine your ceremony process even further.

When creating your Designer Ceremony - you can call me or email me anytime during this process as we create your ceremony together. Along with the consultation meeting we will have.

Because of my experience and organizational skill you will be able to fully relax and enjoy your Wedding Ceremony.


The Intimate Ceremony

For less than 20 guests- designed and created to have a intimate and genuine feel that if a full expression of your Love.

Exquisite Elopement in my English Garden in July and August in Bend, OR or I help you find a beautiful location in nature or a cool hotel, or that perfect vacation rental for your Elopement.

Most couples who request my services are looking for a ceremony that celebrates
the miracles of love and connection versus having a strong religious focus.

Besides co-creating a beautiful Wedding Ceremony with you, I make sure every detail of the ceremony
is addressed before and during the ceremony to ensure that the entire process is effortless and exactly what you want.

I have been ordained as a Minister by the Universal Life Church, a non-denominational, interfaith church, since 1995.

I lived all over the world making me very open to your unique expression of our Love. I am also trained as a Relationship Happiness Coach - making it easy for me to get to know you - to create rapport so that I can truly create a beautiful ceremony with you.

Let me be the one to support you in creating, designing, & facilitating your Wedding Ceremony of Love.

Mary Ellen proved to be the perfect choice for officiating our wedding. She was very accommodating and always willing to offer advice on vows and the structure of the ceremony. She made a concerted effort to get to know us and our story and was able to tailor our ceremony to fit us perfectly! We immediately felt comfortable with her as she is so personable and we are so thankful that we found her to marry us.

We had a great experience with Mary Ellen as our officiant. Our original plan fell through so we contacted her with not much time to spare before the wedding. She worked with our schedule and spoke to us over the phone as we live out of the area.

She really took the time to learn who we are and made a beautiful ceremony for us. It was an intimate wedding but we still needed some organization and Mary Ellen really helped ease my mind with the rehearsal and getting all the wedding party together.

My husband is more religious than I am but she blended our ideas for the wedding beautifully. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

We are so glad we found Mary Ellen! We didn't want a "traditional, big," wedding but we also wanted something more special than a courthouse wedding. ME was able to give us a simple and small ceremony and made it very special! We do not live in Bend so ME made time to meet up with us on the morning of our wedding so we could find the perfect spot. She took us on a little walk through Shevlin Park and found some spots we could do our ceremony at. ME even arrived early to our ceremony and made a cute arrangement on the ground with pine cones for our family to stand around. She gave us just what we wanted, a nice ,sweet ceremony on a great fall day, among the trees,right along Tumalo Creek. I would recommend Mary Ellen to everyone.

Mary Ellen (ME) was incredibly supportive and flexible throughout the entire planning process. I had a lot of ideas and tried to include too much in the ceremony at first. She asked all the right questions and helped guide us to the best ceremony we could have hoped for! ME personalized our ceremony by including menton of our dogs, which was important to us as well. Overall, ME was a joy to work with, Fun, vibrant and professional! We had the best day of our lives!

Rev. Mary Ellen, "M.E. Emmy", was absolutely amazing! She officiated our wedding this past August 16th in such a personal and beautiful way.

Emme made a point to meet with us at Anthony's in Bend and get to know us. She shared some very beautiful things at our ceremony (with our consent, of course!), with family and friends.

I have to admit, I was a bit nervous, but before too long, Emme made me feel right at ease, with her reassuring manner.

We are so happy to know Emme, and she is someone who you would want to continue to communicate with even after the big day has passed!

I highly recommend Emme for any type of wedding you may have!

Weddings With Heart was a perfect match for our 'Surprise Wedding' for our families. It was small and intimate and held with the Sacredness that we were looking for. Mary Ellen was everything and more that we were looking for in an officiant. I would recommend her to any and everyone I know. She has the capacity to perform any type of wedding, in any type of setting, as she takes the time to really get to know her couple before creating their ceremony with them. She is delightful, thoughtful, and professional. We will be forever grateful for her Presence on our wedding day.
