Non-Denominational Minister for Elopements, Intimate Weddings, and Renewals at the magical Central Oregon Coast.

I offer custom, easeful support on your special day, to help you create a ceremony that reflects the love, uniqueness, and joy of your union.

I feel honored to guide you through your memorable event.

— Rev. Katrina Wynne, M.A.

Create a Beautiful Memory, Your Way!

I offer the following types of ceremonial services, customizable to your needs:


Elopements • Weddings • Same Sex • Renewals • Handfastings • Interfaith
Native American/Blended Spirit • Rite-of-Passage • Celebration-of-Life • Funerals
 

It would be my honor to support you
on your special day.

 

By the request of family and friends I have been offering my services as officiant for wedding, commitment, rite-of-passage, memorial and other ceremonies for close to 25 years, since 1996.

I listen to your vision for this special event and craft a custom ceremony that incorporates all your desired elements…including the challenging ones…with true finesse.

It is an honor and a blessing to be a part of your special day. I’m very open-minded and welcome all people and persuasions to create ceremonies for me to serve as the facilitator. I respect your choice for who attends your ceremony. I look forward to creating precious memories with you!

 

Holding space for you and your vision.

 

Whether you are looking to elope or want to have a more traditional wedding ceremony, chances are that you would like the experience to be simple, meaningful, and memorable. My biggest job in supporting ceremonies is to hold space for you and your guests to be comfortable and prepared so you can fully enjoy your special day.

From the moment we first review your vision to the day of the ceremony, I take care of all aspects of the process and can provide as little or as much guidance and content as you would like. From poetry to vows to finding a license, I can support you or take care of it for you, so you can have a low-stress, enjoyable experience before and on the day. With over 20 years of experience, you can rest assured knowing your license is going to be filed quickly and properly.

When scheduling ceremonies on the Oregon Coast, it is a comfort to know that my services are provided in any type of weather, rain or shine. 

If you are seeking a beautiful ceremony in a natural environment on the Central Oregon Coast, then I would love to support you in creating a meaningful, easeful experience. My sliding scale for some types of ceremonies also assures that you can work within your budget.

Creating Your Vision

The Planning Process

 

It is my desire for you to have the most memorable day of your life. In my hands the process will be smooth and easy as I guide you through the simple steps of preparing for your special day. Here is a bird's eye view of my process:

  • Once you contact me by email with your wedding date and location, I will respond with confirmation of my availability and send you a ceremony planning questionnaire.
  • Upon receiving your answers to the questionnaire, I will have a better understanding of your vision and will be able to support you to fine tune the details for making the experience the most wonderful it can be.
  • I'm always available via e-mail (and via phone by appointment) to review any topic you wish.
  • If you're not writing personal vows, I am happy to provide you with samples or will even write custom vows for you; your ease and enjoyment is my ultimate goal.

On Your Wedding Day

  • I meet you at the designated location with a coordinated outfit to match your wedding colors and guide you through the ceremony process in a very loving and compassionate manner. 
  • Your ceremony is a beautiful blending of your vision, my intuitive sense of your hearts' desires and the spirit of the natural environment.
  • My service includes the legal signing of your marriage certificate and delivery of your marriage license. Renewal certificates are of my custom design.
  • No need for a deposit for local locations: payment is made after the ceremony.
 

Investment

My pricing structure makes it simple ...

  • Suggested sliding scale fee, typically $150 – $300 for my services.
  • The renewal ceremony sliding scale starts at $100.

It is a joy to help you create a magical memory.

 

Welcome to my home, the magnificent Central Oregon Coast, where together we will blend the beauty of nature and the deep spirit of this land with the vision for your ceremony.

It truly is my honor to share the blessing of your precious event and to bring my many years of experience into play to make it an unforgettable memory for all.

Living on the Central Oregon Coast since 1991, I've hiked most every trail, climbed several coastal mountains, taken the back roads, and walked the beaches. I feel so fortunate to live here and to be able to share the magic of this place with you.

Besides being a Minister who is active in my local church, I have served my community as a mental and spiritual health counselor since 1992, including premarital and post-marital guidance.

I know the key ingredients to creating a successful union and meaningful life for couples and families. And as it can arise in some cases, I also have the ability to navigate the challenges that appear around the excitement and contrasting needs surrounding these major life events. Let me be your emotional as well as spiritual guide through the hurdles that may need my uplifting spirit.
