"Thank you so much for officiating our wedding ceremony! To this day we get compliments on how beautifully you lead the ceremony and how well you conveyed our love with so much sincerity. We truly believe you set the wonderful tone for our day and we couldn't' be more pleased."
"Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding and for the beautiful ceremony you created. We can't tell you how much we appreciate the time you took to get to know us and make our ceremony personal and meaningful. It was a pleasure working with you through the whole process of planning our wedding. "
How do you imagine your wedding ceremony? How can I help your dreams come true? It is an honor and a pleasure to help create a stress-free, fun wedding to start your marriage on a spectacular note! Careful planning and a relaxed atmosphere creates success. You can feel relaxed knowing the ceremony will be just as you want it to be.
Elopement weddings in the San Juan Islands are an honor to officiate. Would you like to discuss some options? I officiate a lot of elopements and find them to be intimate, relaxed, fun, and unique each time.
Beyond providing a personalized ceremony that will be a keepsake for the rest of your lives, I am available to help with logistics, such as:
We can meet by phone, Facetime, Skype, e-mails, or perhaps for coffee or a meal, maybe a walk around a mountain lake.
A rehearsal is optional. It can help everyone feel at ease and valued in their role at the wedding.
I love meeting children, elders, family, and friends, knowing how important a wedding day is in people’s lives.
It is a happy day when guests of the wedding couple shake my hand and offer kind words of joy for the ceremony they just witnessed.
We can assist you and your guests with:
“When we love, the miracle happens: that which may have been motivated by selfishness and the assumption or desire that things must go just as you wish them to — that element simply steps aside, and you have another, nobler reason to exist – the happiness and well-being of your beloved.”
If you would like to be married on the mainland, I am available for weddings in Anacortes, Mt. Vernon, La Conner, Burlington, Seattle, and surrounding Puget Sound areas. There is an extra $100-$125 cost for travel (ferries and time).
I am available for destination weddings out of state and can do necessary paperwork to be licensed at your destination wedding location.
"Didier was the perfect Officiant for our wedding and we are so happy we picked him! He is a very funny, and personable guy and he helped to make our wedding day perfect! He is very understanding and in-tune with how we wanted to put together our ceremony. We both appreciated Didier's calm and warm personality and he completely understood that our wedding day nerves stemmed from excitement, not doubt about what we were doing. We loved every minute and were so happy with how our ceremony was put together and how flexible he was with us up to and including our wedding day. The first time I spoke with him during our planning phase, I knew that he was the person I was looking for. Didier is truly passionate about what he does and he honestly cares about making your wedding day special and memorable (memorable in a good way!). We would recommend him to anyone!"
