Wedding Ceremony Officiant, Portland/Vancouver
Let me help you have your ceremony your way. If you select me you can get an up-front planning session, ongoing consults, questionnaires and planning sheets, and a fully tailored script for your ceremony for a very competitive and affordable price. Plus I arrive early and can arrange for prior rehearsals.
I’ll help you – if you’d like – to customize the ceremony and vows – standard or your own – so that your ceremony on your special day is as perfect as you want it to be. I’m happy to incorporate special elements – sand, unity candle or others – so that your ceremony exactly fits your needs, wants, and desires. I’ll work with you and your planning, venue, and coordination vendors so that everything runs smoothly and happily. Visit the booking calendar on the left to check for available dates or contact me – even on booked dates – to see if a specific time on that date might still be available.
Traditional or contemporary religious and non-religious ceremonies are no problem and I’m happy to add custom elements as you desire.
Please see my Facebook page for some useful forms and other information in the “Photos” section. I also do Vow Renewal ceremonies if that is a service that you need.
If you have questions or would like advice or referrals, please call, email or use my contact form.

We had the privilege of having Reverend Jon Turino as the officiant for our wedding. Jon was very thorough in trying to find exactly what we wanted in our presentation as Mr. and Mrs. We wanted an elegant professional ceremony and that was exactly what he provided. He was very well dressed also and fit perfectly in our photos which was a big plus for us. Couldn’t have asked for a better Officiant. Thank you, Jon! – Mr. & Mrs. Patrick Eldred503-877-4609 | email@example.com
