Getting You “Married” ~ Elegant, Easy & Fun!

You want to elope in Seattle, Tacoma or somewhere special in Washington State! As a non-denominational Wedding Officiant & Celebrant, I will create and officiate your fun, engaging and memorable “elopement” or small and intimate wedding ceremony ~ whether this is today, tomorrow, next week or next month.

As a Wedding Officiant & Celebrant working throughout Seattle, Tacoma and the Pacific Northwest, I work with couples of all faiths and traditions to craft and deliver a sweet, elegant and fun ceremony that celebrates a loving partnership – whether your guest list is two witnesses or 20 of your closest family and friends.

Whether you are to be married waterside, in a chapel, at friend’s home, at the base of a mountain or at the corner of 83rd and Greenwood in Seattle, I can make your elopement wish come true.

In this work that I do, my style is inclusive, unstuffy, creative, personalized and fun. For fun, I do not jump out of anything. I do not wear scuba gear and I do not do any ceremony naked. Other than that, I’m open. So, Elope  ~ Seattle Style!

Elope Seattle! Tips For Planning A Seattle Elopement In The Winter Or Spring 2019…

Seattle is a very popular destination for couples who want a sweet and intimate wedding ceremony, often a sweet ceremony for ‘2,’ and/or with just a few of their best people.

As you ponder the possibility of eloping to/around Seattle, from somewhere nearby, or perhaps thousands of miles away, here are a few tips to help you figure things out.

  1. Finalize a Date and Secure a Location.  In the Winter and Spring, the weather in the Puget Sound is hugely unreliable. So while it may sound romantic to be married outdoors, if it’s too cold or crazy rain, this oftentimes makes things challenging or uncomfortable.  Figure out a Plan and a Plan B (indoor/outdoor).
  2. Marriage License.  You need to secure a valid Washington State Marriage License from any County in Washington State.  Happily, your license can be used in any County within the State.  There is a 3-day waiting period from the date of issue.  And you’ll need 2 witnesses, over the age of 18. If you don’t have witnesses, ask me.
  3. A Special Overnight.  Many of my couples like to snuggle into a bed and breakfast, small boutique hotel or even an opulent downtown Seattle hotel for a night or two.  Ask me about my favorites.
  4. Bring Fido!  I’m an animal lover and I love it so much when a couple brings their beloved pooch, as part of their wedding day.  Many of our lovely hotels throughout the Puget Sound are incredibly pet friendly.  Woof!
  5. Remember Your Values.  A small and intimate ceremony, a ceremony for ‘2,’ or a ceremony and celebration for a dozen, is all about what is important to the two of you as a couple.  Follow your hearts, capture your day with beautiful photos, have FUN and focus on creating moments and memories.

A Seattle Elopement, in Winter, 2019…

There is truly something magical about two people, surrounded by a handful of people they love and care for, exchanging vows, in the crisp outdoors (another description for cold!) and/or inside, with dozens of lit candles.

Jorge and Michelle traveled to Seattle last month, with their closest and best family and friends, and were married in a circle of rose petals at Treehouse Point in Issaquah. The day was December. It was very cold outside. And when I approached Jorge about the location for all of this and found it was outside, I asked, ‘why?’

With a sly and loving grin on his face, Jorge said, ‘because she is savage!’

Congratulations to two beautiful people!
