Contemporary, Traditional to Offbeat Wedding Ceremonies

As your Officiant - I am here to inspire and support you in creating a Wedding Ceremony that is truly a reflection of your Love.

From a beautiful Resort Wedding to Skiing into your favorite spot to finding that most incredible spot in nature with an amazing view - I am the Officiant for you.

I love creating ceremonies - event planning, and making sure every detail of your Ceremony is taken care of. I am dedicated to making your ceremony unique, intimate, fresh, and beautiful.

I am professional, creative, friendly and fun. Most of all - I will make the process of designing and creating your ceremony effortless and a celebration of your love.

I offer - Day Coordination & Relationship Happiness Success Coaching. I am so much more than an Officiant.

I love wild places in nature, mountain biking, wilderness hiking, sea kayaking, Nordic skiing, gardening, art, music, beauty, pickle ball, life-long learning, dancing, Yoga, the study of Mindfulness, Self-Compassion, and Love stories.

Growing up - I lived in Tanzania, Turkey, Sri Lanka, and Spain. Making me very open to many world views and having a more international approach to how I perform Weddings.

I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro - the highest mountain in Africa when I was 17 years old and I am always ready for an adventure.

I have lived in Bend for many years and know tons of cool places in nature for your Ceremony as every time I go out - I look for that perfect place for your Wedding, Intimate Ceremony, or your Vacation Elopement or Classic Elopement.

Inspiring, Intimate, joyous Wedding Ceremonies.

Choosing Mary Ellen to be our officiant was one of the easiest and best decisions we made while planning our wedding. We wanted a very relaxed, informal wedding with just family and close friends, we wanted it to feel very intimate, and Mary Ellen delivered! Everyone said it seemed as if she had known us forever. We had a couple of meetings before the wedding to go over what kind of ceremony we wanted and we were very happy on our wedding day, that she went above and beyond what we imagined. She even helped tailor the ceremony to include our daughter and vows for her. The day felt easy and full of love. She worked with us and stayed flexible, which kept me relaxed. I can say with 100% certainty, we will recommend her to anyone looking for someone to make their wedding day very special. Thank you again Mary Ellen!

We decided to make a two day get away into getting married. We called Mary Ellen on Saturday and she married us on Thursday. Though it was spur of the moment, ME made it very special and magical. ME was great to work with. We felt like an 'old' friend married us.

If you want an intuitive, spiritual, professional, charming, engaging, overall delightful wedding officiant, Mary Ellen Deckelmann is your person. We cannot say enough positive about her. We only wish we had more time to hang out with her in a more casual setting. Truly made our wedding an inspiration to all in attendance. We had a small gathering of 20 people from all over the country at Zenith Vineyard, 1:30 on a Thursday afternoon. Choosing an officiant was difficult because we did it online from Cincinnati. A few phone conversations, and we knew ME was original and unique. Thank you ME, you made our ceremony special...truly a memorable occasion, better than imagined, we will never forget, ...a dream come true! Cheers!

ME was the absolute best! She made our elopement exactly what we had wanted, small, intimate, fun, and happy! She worked with us to make sure that the ceremony was worded just how we wanted it, capturing specific words that we use. We couldn't have asked for a better ceremony or officiant!

After some online searching we found ME, she sounded perfect for our quaint intimate ceremony along the Metolius. She was helpful, fun, kind, enthusiastic, and she made me and my husband feel at ease. We couldn't have asked for a better person to perform our ceremony. It was a magical day and I am so glad we chose ME.
