About Us

Don't let COVID-19 stop you from getting married.

With two witnesses and myself (the officiant) we can have a virtual wedding (Zoom, FaceTime, Skype) that is heartfelt, personal, and certainly memorable! Legally binding.

Located in the San Juan Islands, I travel to the three major islands (Orcas, San Juan, Lopez) and to the mainland to officiate weddings. My aim is to be of service to couples to create a meaningful and personal ceremony.

The San Juan Islands and nearby areas are amazing locations for weddings with locations that are as beautiful as the most beautiful places in the world!

We have everything you need in the San Juan Islands for a fantastic wedding, from elopements to big weddings: beautiful venues, delicious island-produced food, island-grown flowers, talented photographers and videographers, and great caterers.

Your guests are going to come home and wonder what kind of dream vacation they just experienced!

I think a wedding ceremony is not only intended for the couple who is being married–it is also intended for everyone who is present 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 pleasure when the wedding party can feel confident and relaxed knowing the ceremony will be a success!

Ceremonies are flexible and non-denominational, religious or non-religious.

Let's work together to create a ceremony that will be a valuable keepsake for the rest of your lives.

It is my pleasure to help dreams come true by listening and creating a personalized ceremony centered around what’s important to couples to celebrate their love on their wedding day.

I like to gather from conversations (face-to-face, Skype, FaceTime, phone) and e-mails what couples admire about each and how couples enjoy sharing their time together, shared values, etc. Then I weave this into the ceremony so that it is personal and meaningful. The process is comfortable and fun. The wedding is a culmination of a relationship that is built by going deep and yet light and joyous.

Whether we have a rehearsal or not, I like to help guests feel at ease and valued no matter what their role will be in a wedding.

If you’re thinking of coming to the San Juans (or you are a local who already knows and loves this place), you will be so happy you came to these majestic islands!

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 area. There is an extra travel cost for ferries and time. I am also available for destination weddings.

  • I wanted a simple wedding, total of 5 people. Didier gave us an experience that we will cherish for a lifetime. I had no idea my simple wedding could be so enormous! He brought an energy, and a spiritual encounter like no other.

    Thank you for your kind words, Carrie. I am so happy to hear the ceremony will be cherished for a lifetime. Sometimes simple can be grand! I am honored to have been part of such a significant event in your lives! Best to you and Clyde! Didier
