Weddings in the San Juan Islands by Reverend Rita Ament

Reverend Rita Ament can make your Island wedding dreams come true.


The beautiful and romantic San Juan Islands in Washington State are known to be a very special paradise, where couples visit from all over the world to get married, renew their vows, celebrate their wedding day and enjoy their honeymoon.

I am an ordained, non-denominational minister officiating weddings at many gorgeous Island locations.

Every wedding that I have had the honor to officiate has been a very personal and memorable expression of each couple's love for one another. It is a precious opportunity in which you can create your dreams together, and, if desired, sharing these moments with your family and friends.

I can perform your wedding ceremony in a park, forest, beach, home, garden, church, resort, boat or ferry. It can be just the two of you, a small or large wedding. It can be casual or formal.

I can assist you with your marriage license. I can provide several ceremonies for you to choose from or to use as a reference to write your very own. I can help you plan your wedding months ahead or can be available on short notice. If you elope, and it is just the two of you, I can provide 2 witnesses for your ceremony, as required by law.

Ordained as a Minister (non-denominational) in 1996, I have performed many weddings in a variety of settings. When the bride and groom come from different religions, we have always been able to incorporate both so that you create together your unique and meaningful expression.

Officiating and being part of assisting couples in creating such a special day is something that brings true joy to my heart.

I have been a resident of San Juan Island, Washington for twenty-one years and can assist you with information on the many beautiful locations available here. Upon request I can also suggest individuals and businesses that can provide services that you may need.

My fee varies depending on the size of your wedding, the location, and whether you would choose to have me at your rehearsal to assist you with the wedding procession logistics.

I would love to be part of your very wonderful and special day and assist you in creating the wedding of your dreams.

A Professional Singer that I recommend to enhance your wedding day.
