Seattle Wedding Officiant, Celebrant & Non-Denominational Minister
Serving Greater Seattle, Tacoma, Puget Sound and Washington State
You are getting married! I am honored to be considered as the Officiant for your wedding ceremony!
My name is Annemarie Juhlian and it is my privilege and joy to work with you - an excited and engaged couple - to create and deliver your personalized, romantic and memorable wedding ceremony (formal or casual) - one that celebrates your unique story and creates an authentic and cherished memory for years to come.
As a Wedding Officiant, I respect and honor all beliefs and traditions - religious, spiritual or secular. As a full-time Seattle/Tacoma Wedding Officiant, Celebrant and contemporary Non-Denominational Minister, I am passionate about creating a personalized wedding ceremony that is truly about the two of you and your tribe.
Working together, I offer a highly personalized approach to your wedding ceremony. Depending on whether you are being married tomorrow, in a few months or next year, weíll take appropriate time together so I can craft and deliver a beautiful custom wedding ceremony with personalized vows that fully express your uniqueness as a couple - at a location of your choice.
My fee: I work throughout the greater Seattle/Tacoma area and Washington State and as each couple is unique, fees vary. My fee is affordable and is structured to support the time dedicated to your wedding ceremony, while also working within your budget.
Over the years, I have been fortunate to work with highly committed and motivated couples. Please go to Testimonials for personal references.
I fully recognize that selecting an Officiant is a somewhat unfamiliar process. My goal in working together is to make this a fun and easy experience - no weirdness or hassles - just the joy of knowing we like each other and we have the marvelous opportunity to create and work together on a lifetime moment.

If we work together, you have my personal promise that I will officiate your ceremony with professionalism and heart, keeping the focus on the two of you and your family/friends. I hold the vision that you "own your ceremony," and as the co-creator, encourager and Officiant of your wedding ceremony, it is my job to insure that together, we share in a truly authentic experience. And hereís what I know for sure: a joyful, uplifting and "real" ceremony sets the stage for a lively celebration afterwards!
So, working together, how do we create a ceremony that truly reflects your values and uniqueness as a couple? During our complimentary consultation, Iíll outline my process and offer you different ways of working with me. As a ceremony designer and writer, I will ultimately craft the words and rituals of your wedding ceremony and work to appropriately engage your family and friends.

Exceptional Value For Your Wedding Dollar and Time...
Each couple I work with is unique. For your time and money, I will write and deliver a custom written ceremony (formal or casual), lead your wedding rehearsal, serve as "ceremony planner" on your wedding day, and submit your legal paperwork to the County Auditor. Plus, you have full and unlimited access to me via email or phone at any time leading up to you wedding day.
There is no right way to "do" a wedding ceremony. And there technically is no "wrong" way, either. Itís all about your unique and loving partnership - what you want/desire for your ceremony and celebrating with your family friends (your tribe). And working together, I will craft, write and deliver your ceremony with all of my best intentions/talents, good faith and heart. Yes, your wedding ceremony is all about the two of you!
Bottom-line? I am very passionate about my work and am committed to offering you the highest quality of service and value for your time and money. In return, you experience a wedding ceremony that is distinctively joyful, poignant, fun and one that is memorable for everyone involved. A great wedding ceremony feels comfortable and easy and yet it is fully designed and planned for a desired result.
I invite you to go to wedding ceremonies for more information.

So, Who Exactly Is This "Marrying Lady?"
I want you to know something that is true for me: I do not use your wedding ceremony as a platform to espouse my personal beliefs but to assist you in celebrating yours. I come to this work with a happy heart, a peaceful home life and wonderful husband, and my "soul work" which is working to rescue and rehabilitate neglected/abused dogs. My life philosophy is spiritual in nature with love and kindness at its center. While there may be a fair amount of detail on this website (lots of reading!), my intention is to be as transparent as possible with my professional experience, training and heart.
In selecting your Wedding Officiant/Celebrant, you deserve a person who loves their work. And I absolutely do. After nine years of doing this work, I am still so deeply honored to share in a coupleísí wedding Day. Yes, this is "big huge" in so many ways - not only for you, but for me, too.
I thank you for your consideration.
