Meeting Your Needs, Wants, and Desires

I have traveled all over the U.S., Europe, Scandinavia, and Asia. I spent many, many years teaching and preaching technical, business, and marketing topics to businesses of all kinds. So what am I doing performing wedding ceremonies?

It's actually pretty simple. I had a friend ask me a couple of years ago to marry her and her fiance. Knowing absolutely nothing about doing that, I went to the Internet and found out how to become ordained and how to perform the ceremonies. Who says an old guy can't learn a new avocation?

The result was a wonderful ceremony that the bride, groom, and 250+ guests absolutely loved. And I had a ball being the officiant. Thus my new career as a professional wedding officiant was born! I love marrying people. And they love the way I do it for them. I've officiated at over 100 weddings so far and am booked well into next year. And I'd love to marry you (and your spouse, of course!). Contact me at jonturino(at)gmail.com or by phone at 503-877-4609.

If you select me you can get an up-front planning session, ongoing consults, questionnaires and planning sheets, and a fully tailored script for your ceremony for a very competitive and affordable price. Plus I arrive early and can arrange for prior rehearsals.

I’ll help you – if you’d like – to customize the ceremony and vows – standard or your own – so that your ceremony on your special day is as perfect as you want it to be. I’m happy to incorporate special elements – sand, unity candle or others – so that your ceremony exactly fits your needs, wants, and desires. I’ll work with you and your planning, venue, and coordination vendors so that everything runs smoothly and happily. Visit the booking calendar on the --eft to check for available dates or contact me – even on booked dates – to see if a specific time on that date might still be available.--

Traditional or contemporary religious and non-religious ceremonies are no problem and I’m happy to add custom elements as you desire.

Jon did a fantastic job at our ceremony! We had a lot of ideas but weren’t really sure how to bring it all together. He helped us understand what would work well and what we might want to change. However, he let it be our ceremony, so we were the final deciders. Jon was extremely flexible and very responsive usually responding to emails and calls within hours. Despite booking him only a few weeks before the ceremony, Jon was able to streamline all our wishes and provide us with the most sentimental, loving, and “us” ceremony possible. We would highly recommend Jon to any and all couples.

I want to make the price for my services as reasonable and as transparent for you as possible for you.

If you need more that the simple services listed, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I may be able to help you directly or provide you with a referral to someone who can help you. I want to help make your ceremony as close to perfect for you as possible!

We loved Jon. He arrived early and stayed late while we scrambled to collect some things we forgot for the ceremony. Hearty recommendation.” – Steven W, Vancouver, WA
