Welcome, I specialize in Secular (not religious) and Nondenominational (not a particular religion) wedding and vow renewal ceremonies. Your ceremony should be unique and special like you. The loving vows that are exchanged between you and your sweetheart are the next step in a long and wonderful life together.
I have been an Officiant since 2005 and have performed hundreds of weddings. I particularly enjoy officiating Vow Renewal ceremonies. Helping a couple to create a wedding or vow renewal ceremony that is all about their love; is special to me. I want their love to shine throughout the ceremony. I truly believe that I am extremely lucky and blessed to have met so many wonderful couples over the years. I have enjoyed helping couples have their dream weddings. Whether they were eloping or had hundreds of guests at their ceremony. Every wedding ceremony or vow renewal ceremony was special. There is a magical feeling when two people in love join together to share their lives forever. If you would like my help in creating your perfect ceremony, please contact me. I would love to be a part of your ceremony!
I officiate ceremonies in Oregon and SW Washington state.

Eloping? short notice? No problem

Rev. Michels did exactly as we asked. My impression is that she will cater to whatever your needs are from a very formal wedding to what we had a very small casual wedding. She was on time and very accommodating. I would recommend her to anyone.
