ANNEMARIE JUHLIAN - SEATTLE WEDDING OFFICIANT & MINISTER REVIEWS
Your search should truly stop here, with Annemarie. There are no amount of words I could use to express how grateful I am that my husband and I found her and booked her for our wedding. Her reviews are what drew us in and I can tell you having been on your side looking for someone to officiate your wedding , she is every great thing people wrote about and so much more. She is spunky, directive, thorough, creative, thoughtful, compassionate, personable and a true gem. If you want a ceremony that is truly personal... she is your gal. I grew up with parents that were more spiritual and my husband grew up catholic and Annemarie gave us the best ceremony ever to reflect both of our upbringings and what was important to us. I cannot even begin to tell you how many people came up to both my husband and I the day of our wedding and after our wedding saying that was absolutely the best wedding ceremony they have been at. I cannot recommend Annemarie enough, she played such a pivotal role in our day and we are so grateful!!
We loved our experience with Annemarie! My husband and I couldn’t have chosen anyone better to marry us. Annemarie is professional, accommodating, and best of all writes beautifully ceremonies suited to the couple. Our ceremony truly spoke to our relationship. Annemarie serves as a day of coordinator and was there to make sure everything flowed effortlessly. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect because of Annemarie. I would recommend her services again and again, thank you so much Annemarie!!
Annemarie is truly special. We hired her for our wedding last weekend and couldn’t have been happier with our decision. My wife and I knew the first time we met her that she was the person we wanted to lead our wedding, and she made the entire process of planning our ceremony stress free and easy. In preparation for our wedding, Annemarie assigned both of us “homework” to get to know us better and to better know the details of our relationship. The questionnaires are VERY thorough, but once you see the finished product in the ceremony draft; you’ll understand that this is a person who makes a true effort to get you as a couple and it absolutely shows during the ceremony! We had multiple people tell us after the ceremony how fun, heartfelt, and joyous it was. We would hands down recommend her to anyone we know getting married!

FRANCIS MICHAEL LEE - THE WEDDING GENTLEMAN REVIEWS
Francis made our ceremony that much more special. We got to customize everything that was said during the ceremony. Francis brought to the table different ways to make this OUR wedding. With every section of the ceremony, there were several choices that we chose from. And Francis said that if we didn't see something that we liked or just wasn't "us" that he had more. He had the most perfect poem that I got my sister to read during the ceremony. This turned out better than I thought it would! Francis was GREAT at communicating with me in a timely manor. It was me who was delayed in responding! His price is very fair. Especially considering the face that he is from Edmonds area and our wedding venue was in Mount Vernon. He has a great personality, and we appreciated his "non-dullness". He added a few comments here and there during the ceremony, which we had already discussed that it would be perfectly fine to do. He asked us if he could do that!! For him to ask if that was okay to do, that's just so thoughtful! His flow of speaking and clarity we great. We appreciate all that he did in preparation for our wedding!!
We got married at the Willows Lodge in Woodinville on 09/21/19 and had our wedding officiated by the Wedding Gentleman, Francis Michael Lee. From the time we met Francis until the end of our ceremony he helped us through the process and made our special day even more special. Francis was kind, funny and very engaging with our guests, he even came to our rehearsal party at our house the night before. We highly recommend Francis to any couple looking to push their event up one extra notch. Thanks, Francis! Heather and Steve..
We loved working with Francis for our ceremony! He really helped the process run smoothly, and was very patient with the whole thing! His rate was very reasonable and he had a fun sense of humor too. We also really appreciated his flexibility and understanding of the lgbtq+ community which made us feel super comfortable. Thank you, Francis! We will keep you in mind if any friends need a great officiant!!!

RICH SCLAFANI - SEATTLE WEDDING PASTOR REVIEWS
From the first time we met Rich, we knew he would be perfect for the job, not only because of his experience, but also because his beaming personality let us know that he truly enjoys his job. He worked with our budget, which was a big plus for us. Throughout putting together our sermon, he was always very considerate of our wishes for what we wanted for our ceremony, like how religious (or not) we wanted it to sound, and the kind of sermonette he delivered. Correspondence was always quick and reliable. And something that is very unique to his services is his "pastor humor" section, where he gave my husband and I questions to answer (secretly) about one another. At the ceremony, he read our answers about each other, and it really made everything so personal and even more special. All of our guests loved that section. Rich, was great to work with and I definitely recommend him to my friends, and anyone looking for a great pastor. Thanks, Rich!
From the moment we met Rich we knew he was the right person to marry us. Neither my husband nor I are particularly religious, but we were at a loss about how to construct a meaningful ceremony outside of a church. Rich immediately soothed all of our worries and worked with us to create a ceremony that was personal, loving, and sincere!! Rich provides you with a step by step process to customize your ceremony in a way that feels fun and manageable. He is open to making it as religious or secular as you want with no judgement. He was extremely patient and supportive as we worked through rounds of revisions. The day before the wedding he ran a rehearsal that was organized and that made our out of town friends and family feel included and well prepared. I cannot imagine having gotten married without Rich and I would recommend him to any couple looking to build a unique and personalized experience.
Rich is the BEST wedding officiant out there! He is creative, thoughtful, and hilarious, and helped us create a perfectly individualized wedding ceremony. We have received so many comments from wedding guests about how meaningful and unique they found the ceremony. Thank you, Rich!
