Wedding Officiant Minister Seattle and surrounding areas
Mari Odette-Kanotz , wedding officiant minister Seattle, Issaquah, Puget Sound area. As an ordained Minister, Mari has officiated wedding ceremonies since 1997.
Mari decided to become ordained after a stressful wedding in 1997. She was performing as an MC/DJ in Tacoma, WA. The bride and groom were there, the photographer, most of the bridal party and close family members however, 100 guests including the minister that was to officiate the wedding were all stuck north of a huge pile up on Interstate 5.
The minister and many guests were coming from Seattle towards Tacoma and although they did their best to make it to the wedding on time, traffic was held up for 6 hours and the ceremony was delayed for several hours.
The bride was stressed out and crying in the Bride’s room and normally, Mari would do what she could to fix the situation. In this case, Mari could do nothing but wait along with everyone else.
The photographer mentioned that he was “ordained” so worst case scenario he could officiate the ceremony. One way or another the couple would be married.
Everyone, including the officiant arrived and the ceremony the bride wanted took place. What a relief.
Stories don’t always have a happy solution and Mari wanted to be sure she could come to the rescue if needed. Since 1997, she’s had to step in to save many ceremonies where either the officiate was late, had an emergency or other issues.
Mari would prefer to perform ceremonies that are planned to have her officiate in advance but can always do a “last-minute” ceremony.
She has performed ceremonies in living rooms, hotel lobbies, near the beach, in the mountains ANYWHERE you choose. You are free to write your own vows or use our template as is or tweak it to fit your style.
