A Marriage Officiant To Create The Perfect Ceremony

Katie Trees D.D., PhD




The wedding ceremony expresses your deep love and the commitment to the path you envision together.  It has been a privilege for me to assist in this vital part of the celebration.   The power of the words written in the ceremony continue to build upon the foundation you have begun during the growth of your history and affinity.  I have a variety of ceremonies from which to choose.  With them, we can blend your feelings and dreams, promises and hopes into the perfect ceremony that speaks to your hearts.


The beaches and towns along the north Oregon coast are known for their beauty and hospitality.  The many parks and waysides offer spectacular ocean vistas that can include old growth trees, waterfalls and lighthouses.   Each beach gifts you with a different sampling of rock formations, trails, tide pools and open spaces for walking and relaxation.  The beach can be the perfect setting for your wedding ceremony.  You are surrounded in beauty as the ocean itself offers inspiration through its power, consistency and the promise of tomorrow.   
Many hotels, known for their hospitality, can provide the perfect venue or amenities for your wedding and reception.  Restaurants, florists, bakeries and beauty salons can support your vision.  A small, intimate wedding or a more formal affair are embraced with the beauty and opportunity found here. 



I’ve lived in Seaside for 35 years.  My greatest honor has been to officiate weddings.   I am asked to participate in the intimate sharing of great love and promise.  Each ceremony has a special quality that touches me deeply.  From young to older couples, gay weddings, more secular or religious; the desire for companionship and the commitment to one another fills me with hope and gratitude.   It is a privilege for me.  Thank you for inviting me to your wedding.
I am happy to offer suggestions for lodging, eateries and local businesses that can complete your wedding plans.  Each beach or park has its own appeal.  There will be a perfect place for you.  I serve the north Oregon coast from Manzanita, Cannon Beach, Seaside to Astoria.  Even the Washington peninsula.  I appreciate the opportunity to create with you a ceremony from the heart.

"We felt so lucky to have you be a part of our wedding.  You not only read our nuptials with grace & ease, but you supported us thru our writing of vows, finding the fabulous cake, the hair salon options, flowers, wedding license rules & details, and the list just goes on.  Somehow, we feel the ceremony would not have been as warm and perfect without you.  We appreciate every little detail and thank you for it all."

Rebecca & David S.

Now that we have arrived back home, we wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for all that you did for our special day.  Brian and I both feel that you instilled in us a sense of calmness on a day that is filled with so many intense emotions.  Your guidance over the last several months and throughout the process of writing our ceremony was tremendous.  We are so happy we were able to create our ceremony exactly how we envisioned it, and you helped to foster that.  Thank you again.  We wish you all the best!

Brian & Lauren M.

Dear Katie,
Thank you so much for officiating our wedding.  Your delivery was very beautiful and special to us.  Thank you too for your assistance in helping us choose the right vows, and your thoughtfulness in coordinating your outfit with our colors.  We also greatly appreciate the keepsake binder of our ceremony, and it is forever preserved in our wedding scrapbook!.
