Creative, Contemporary Ceremonies

Custom-crafted ceremonies to express
your unique personality and perspective
Thank you for finding my page in your search for a wedding officiant in the Portland area. I would be delighted to help you plan a marriage ceremony that is the perfect fit for your lifestyle and spiritual perspective.
I'm an ordained interfaith minister with a doctoral degree in pastoral counseling who has been performing SBNR (spiritual but not religious) weddings, baby welcomings, house blessings, memorials and other rites of passage since 1995. My spiritual references draw from a wide range of inspirations, including Buddhism, Shamanism and Western mysticism, but I'm equally experienced in secular humanism and ceremonies without a spiritual component.
I can help you create a meaningful, original ceremony that reflects your personal spiritual and social perspective, and offers a wealth of creative ideas that incorporate readings, rituals and practices from a variety of cultures, traditions and world views. If you'd like to know more about my academic and professional background, you can find my resume here.
Many thanks... and congratulations!
Your Ceremony Should Be as Unique as You Are
"We were sensitive to the differences in our beliefs. Terri used her knowledge of sacred and secular texts to suggest vows and readings. She has an extremely pleasant and generous manner, and we knew when we met her that she was the right person."
Rafael and Carolyn Pizzaro
"Terri, thank you so much for making our nuptials so special by performing such a beautiful ceremony! I have never seen so many people cry for joy. You were terrific with all of us, and definitely have our vote of confidence!"
"We LOVED our special day and were extremely pleased that Terri was able to individualize our wedding ceremony in line with our beliefs on life and marriage."
Tom and Kim Fuchs
"We had a perfect ceremony! We wanted to write our own vows but didn't know how to start. With Terri's gentle suggestions, we found the right words. Terri's insight and humor really helped things go smoothly."
Sven and Janet Nilson
“One of us was raised Baptist and the other Jewish, but neither of us embraces those religions. We wanted a completely non-religious ceremony, and Terri knew exactly how to bridge the gap. She worked closely with us to create a ceremony that honored our secular viewpoints without offending anyone.”
Eric and Lynn Dean
"For couples seeking an officiant... Terri is amazing! THANK YOU, THANK YOU THANK YOU! Having her as our officiant was the icing on the cake. She is skilled and compassionate, and has a vast knowledge of wedding traditions."
