Wedding Officiant / Minister and Wedding Reception Emcee

ABOUT Wedding Ceremonies YOUR Way and Rev. Mel

Wedding on Cannon Beach, Oregon

From 1997 to date, with at least 475 couples, I have had the honor to officiate or minister weddings and celebrations in Oregon and Washington for local,  international and out of state couples in large churches and small chapels, back yards, local parks, large wedding venues, animal reserves and on a ferry, EVEN center ice during a hockey game, or simply sitting in our living room with 2 witnesses to 10,000 "guests" at the hockey game. 


Yes, I am a minister, but I officiate MANY more non-religious weddings than religious. About 20% religious, 40% non-religious and 40% a mixture. I  WILL officiate YOUR wedding YOUR way.


Whatever your desire from large to small venues, and ceremonies from complex to simple and sweet ceremonies, secular or religious, traditional or "out of the box" with over 10,000 "guests" on ice (see video);  and with just family, as seen the NATIONAL NBC TV News during the August 21st 2017  TOTAL ECLIPSE (see video). The minimum is the couple and 2 witnesses. If witnesses are an issue, I have been 100% successful thus far in finding them when needed; but it is better and less stressful, to have your 2 witnesses.


Your ceremony is ALWAYS YOUR CHOICE. I will help you through your decisions, if you wish, and I will provide you with sample wedding ceremonies/vows for IDEAS if you don't have your own vows, from which you may cut and paste to make your own.

Many minister/officiant testimonials are available on my "REVIEWS" PAGE from the last 3 years.

As a former well-known and venue recommended Wedding DJ (aka "Big Mo") and Wedding Photographer in Oregon and Washington, and now only a Minister/Officiant, I have over 1,000 weddings experience to draw upon to help you with ideas.


FREE SAMPLE WEDDING VOWS and CEREMONIES for IDEAS (but you can use them too). JUST ASK. NO OBLIGATION ! 

I will also send you my e-Packet of information without obligation.

Experienced Master of Ceremonies/ Emcee (MC) services  available, harkening back to my favorite part of my 20 year DJ career.
