Susan Sanford: Wedding Officiant
Serving Eugene, Salem, Corvallis, the Oregon Coast and beyond
Do you want a beautiful, meaningful ceremony “that’s totally us,” but don’t know where to start?
You want a personal ceremony that uniquely reflects who you are and what you mean to each other.
You are thoughtful, deeply in love, and know what works for you. You’ve never planned a ceremony before, and you’re planning your wedding in the midst of already busy lives.
You want something special, but feel daunted by all the possibilities.
You are going into marriage with your eyes open and know that life offers both joys and challenges. You would like your ceremony to help support you through it all.
As a caring, experienced professional officiant, I love walking couples like you through the process of co-creating a personal, meaningful ceremony with your love story at the center.
I officiate weddings throughout the Willamette Valley, including Salem, Eugene, Corvallis, and Albany, the Oregon Coast from Florence to Manzanita, and points in between.
I take the time to get to know you, hear your story, and listen to what’s important to you.
Then I can help guide you to special rituals that reflect your relationship, your beliefs, your values, and your visions for your life together, whether you want a ceremony that is religious, spiritual but not religious, secular or multi-faith. If you have children from previous marriages, I can suggest ways to include them that will help weave your new family together.
Together, we will create a custom ceremony that includes traditions that are important to you, and maybe even traditions and ideas that are completely new to you! The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
I will guide you through a thoughtful process that helps you prepare for marriage, one of the biggest rites of passage in your lives. You will feel more ready to make a loving commitment to your life partner with your community as witness.
When the day of your event comes, I’ll be there as a calm, caring presence to take you into the next step of your journey together.
