Wedding flowers for Annemarie Juhlian, Seattle Wedding Officiant and Celebrant

Fully Devoted to You, My Couple…

My Background, Life Path, Beliefs and Values

I love this work I do.  It is such an honor to be the Officiant for a couple’s wedding ceremony, whether it is big and formal, small and intimate, or a short-and-sweet elopement.

For more than a decade, I have worked with couples of all faiths and traditions (religious, spiritual, secular) as an ordained Non-Denominational Wedding Officiant & Minister, traveling throughout the Seattle/Puget Sound area and Washington State.

My devotion to each couple is the cornerstone of my work.


I am best suited to a couple who envisions their ceremony as the ‘heart’ of their wedding day.  I do my best work for couples who regard their ceremony as the main event, and who want the person joining them in marriage to be experienced, passionate and devoted to them.


I invite you to read Reviews shared by some of my couples.

Beliefs + Background + Training

I embrace this work with a big and sensitive heart. I am open-minded, inclusive, and curious, with a life philosophy that is spiritual and centered on love and kindness.


I was raised in a Christian home, and I have studied and appreciate the traditions, beliefs, and rituals of other faiths. I have earned two Diplomas of Celebrancy from the Celebrant Foundation & Institute in New Jersey.


Before becoming a Wedding Officiant, I spent 15 years building and managing two successful event planning companies in Washington State. Prior to this, I was a television news anchor/reporter in three markets, after earning a degree in Journalism from Syracuse University.

My Family, Dog Rescue & More

I am married to the love of my life, Greg. We live in Olympia, Washington, with our ‘fur family’ of special needs and older dogs, all rescued from neglect or abuse, on a property we call ‘The Wigglebutt Farm.’

The devotion Greg and I have to rescuing and rehabilitating dogs is an expression of the love and commitment we share, and it gives us incredible joy. Greg and I were married at a private home by our wonderful Officiant, with two couples and two of our dogs as witnesses. For us, our wedding day was ‘perfect,’ because we were joined in marriage in a way that felt unique and meaningful to us.

Your Wedding Ceremony. Cherished for a Lifetime.

If a person does this as a ‘job,’ it does not work.

As I intimately understand, one must be inherently honorable in this work.

It is about being deeply grateful to be a part of a couple’s lifetime moment.

At present, I am almost 2 decades into this vocation, and I am as shiny as ever!
