About Us

Elopement? Backyard wedding? Vineyard? Hotel in the center of Portland? LGBT getting hitched in Oregon or Washington? Rooftop wedding? Off-beat wedding? At the top of Angel's Rest? We are open to the kind of wedding you desire. We offer simple elopements in our lovely living room to elaborate interfaith weddings at both indoor and outdoor settings. Humorous? Depthful? Your ceremony can be simple or complex; personal vows or traditional; we love helping couples marry just the way they want to, whatever your spiritual and cultural traditions. Hispanic wedding? We offer Spanish bi-lingual ceremonies. Male or female officiant? Both? We are highly professional, creative and open-minded. Since we co-create your wedding ceremony the language reflects who you are and you have final edit.  Not interested in being so involved?  We can create the perfect ceremony for you as a couple after our in-depth, no obligation interview. Call or e-mail to discuss your desires. We get very busy during prime wedding season - so, don't delay!

Joanie married us in the Portland Rose Garden and she was absolutely perfect in every way! Joanie gave us insight and examples of how to incorporate everything we wanted into our vows. She then created a personalized ceremony that perfectly represented us

Joanie was so understanding of the way we wanted our commitment ceremony to be. We felt held and loved by her expertise and her kind and organized nature. We would recommend her to anyone looking to make a ceremony personal, fun loving and/or spiritual.

You guys rock! Anyone who has ever had a wedding knows how stressful it can be, but the folks at Your Personal Ceremony didn't just relieve the stress, but they made it fun for us and everyone who attended. The Dr. Seuss vows were a huge hit!

Thank you, Joanie. Even though it was an elopement, you made sure to bring as much beauty and love to the event as possible in the half day you had to prepare. Take care.

I never thought I would find my soulmate until he walked into my life a year and a half ago. Since meeting our love, friendship and passion has just soared, I love him so much I can't imagine life without him. I'm marrying the man of my dreams.

Due to having a destination wedding we had reservations using an officiant we didn’t know, but after our initial Skype video interview we signed on the dotted line. Wedding day went better than expected. Both tears and laughs were shared by all. Thanks!!!
