About Us

Your wedding day is a 
celebration of your love.

Our intention is for you to be as delighted and excited about your ceremony as you are about your love for each other.  




  We welcome diversity (cultural, religious, life perspective).  It is a pleasure for us to learn about you and to understand what you would like in your ceremony.  The moment you exchange your vows is one of life's more significant and magic moments.  We want to be sure it is exactly as you wish.

Couples select us when they want ease in planning their ceremony and joy in the day-of-wedding celebration.   We are the type of people your grandmother . . . as well as your "baby brother". . . feel comfortable with.

We are ordained ministers and are currently registered in Washington, Oregon, Hawaii and North Carolina.  This said, we are comfortable with a variety of ceremony perspectives:  civil, spiritual or religious).  We have the experience (over 15 years and 2,000 weddings), writing skills and resources for your ceremony to be meaningful and reflective of your relationship. 

Working with couples who live as far away as Italy, Japan, Germany, Canada, as well as across the U.S., and from Seattle itself, you can marry quickly and easily. (Do remember thought there is a three-day waiting period in the State of Washington.) 

We use email, phone calls and Skype to get to know each other. 

We love officiating and would be honored to officiate for you!

Here are some of the questions couples ask of us:

How far in advance do we need to contact you?
If your marriage license is valid (remember to apply for it three days prior to the wedding), we are likely to be available the same day you call.

What can we expect?
One couple, Betsy and Raymond, described being in a relaxed, peaceful environment where they felt completely accepted.  They also said. "We have splendid memories of our cozy, loving wedding ceremony.  We can't imagine anyone creating a better experience than you did."

Do we have a choice of an officiant?
Yes, you do.  Both Kent and I officiate so if you have a preference, let us know.

How far do you travel?
We are adventurous and have celebrated weddings on Mt. Rainier, at various places around the Hood Canal and Puget Sound, aboard ferries, in remote cabins and more.  There is a travel fee of $1/round trip mile from the Green Lake area.

Where do most of your ceremonies take place?
We are located in the Green Lake area.  You are welcome to marry in our home/office in front of our fireplace, at the lake or in Woodland Park.  We also travel to your home or favorite location.

Can we write our own vows?
We love it when you do.  A collection of ceremonies is provided as part of our services.  You are welcome to edit them, modify them, combine them.  In short, it is your ceremony and we invite you to select wording that you love.

Thank you for being a part of our awesome day! It was everything we hoped it would be and you were a big part of that! I've already recommended you to someone else.

Thanks much!
