We chose Lori for our wedding and we had such an incredible experience. Lori was extremely professional and answered any questions that I had. She helped put my nervous mind at ease. We highly recommend her services!

I am so excited for you both. My name is Rev. Lori Erwin-Johnson and I am an open and affirming wedding officiant who supports love in all its forms in the Spanaway-Tacoma, WA area. If you found me, you are likely looking for a small, intimate ceremony or elopement and don’t really want to go to the court house. Great! You’ve found the right person. I specialize in small wedding ceremonies, at the location of your choice (see COVID 19 announcements). The Pacific Northwest offers a lot of hidden ceremony spots that would be perfect for an outdoor ceremony. The beautiful thing about a small ceremony, you have plenty of options.

If you don’t have witnesses? No problem. I can find witnesses for you. This is your day, your small wedding, your moment for creating the most memorable ceremony for you.

Fees for elopement services for couple and 2 witnesses only (See COVID-19 UPDATES above). Thank you for your understanding during this time. 

  • $175 for ceremonies for non- military
  • $150 for active military
  • $25 non-refundable deposit required.
  • $25 per witness I provide for you
  • $25 additional for holidays

Types of Ceremonies Available
I am an ordained minister who can perform the following types weddings:
  • Christian Ceremonies, with scripture readings and prayer
  • Spiritual Ceremonies, with spiritual readings and candle-lighting
  • Non-religious ceremonies, with civil vows instead of faith-based ones
  • A combination of the above

What's Next?

You can schedule an appointment with me to discuss your plans. I can either do that in person, on the phone, or via Skype. I open to weddings on short notice as long as I am available. So no worries if you need a fast elopement. You will need two witnesses to sign your wedding certificate, have your wedding license and have waited the required 3 days after applying for your license to have your ceremony.
