Portland Wedding & Memorial Officiant

Susie Cunningham


Thank you for everything you did and how beautiful our ceremony was. Everything leading up to our actual wedding day was such a positive experience with you! Jordan and I still talk about how our ceremony was so perfect and really spoke to who we both are as people, and now as a couple. You have such a beautiful gift. You made our special, intimate day one to remember.

My name is Susie Cunningham - a trained and certified Life-Cycle Celebrant(R) dedicated to the art of crafting and officiating creative, personal, non-denominational Wedding and Memorial ceremonies. I am delighted you are interested in knowing more about the custom ceremony services I offer!

Each ceremony I create is as unique as the individuals I join in marriage, or the person honored in a Celebration of Life. I have enjoyed years of experience in event planning, copy writing, public speaking, and the best teacher.... LIFE! I am a writer and storyteller at heart. A lifelong DIY streak fuels my creativity; designing heartcrafted ceremonies is truly my passion.

What distinguishes my services from other Officiants is the gift I offer as your Life-Cycle Celebrant: a personal story I will meticulously write for your ceremony. For Weddings... it's YOUR Love Story. And who doesn't love to hear a good love story ... especially yours! For Memorials, a Life Story is written to authentically honor, remember and celebrate the life of the person who has passed away.

I work very closely with my clients and together WE create THEIR perfect ceremony, making it exactly how they envisioned it. Maybe even better. Be it a more traditional gathering or an eclectic "outside the box" Wedding or Memorial, it will never be a generic cookie-cutter ceremony. You always have final approval of the ceremony so there are no surprises. It really is... ALL about you!
