Welcome to Chanelle Carlin Weddings! (By the way, she is also your Oregon Wedding Officiant and Idaho Officiant too)!

Are you looking to make the Pacific Northwest your wedding destination and still looking for your wedding officiant? Perhaps you love the idea of an elopement on Mount Baker or over on the Pacific Ocean? The Hoh Rainforest or Washington Pass Overlook on the North Cascades Highway? Just as cool and fun may be a winery wedding at Lake Chelan or a beautiful, intimate wedding in the high desert! Chanelle Carlin is YOUR Washington State Wedding Officiant. She travels to all of these places and more to celebrate couples’ marriages. How about the Oregon Coast or one of the amazing venues located in the Columbia River Gorge? Coeur d’Alene, Sandpoint or Schweitzer in Idaho? She also celebrates weddings and other life events for her couples throughout the naturally beautiful Pacific Northwest, including Oregon and Northern Idaho.

I am so lucky to have heard about Chanelle’s business. She took everything in hand and delivered a beautiful ceremony. She asked pertinent questions in our interview with her and understood who we were and what we wanted. She was instrumental in organizing our procession and calming nerves on our day. What I appreciated most is her communication with us. We always knew what was happening/going to happen. I had the ceremony I dreamed of. Thank you Chanelle!

Meet Chanelle Carlin, Wedding Officiant

Hi! My name is Chanelle Carlin and I am Your Washington State Wedding officiant. As a professional wedding officiant, I love helping couples celebrate their very unique, one-of-a-kind love stories with custom elopement/intimate wedding ceremonies. Taking time to listen and to get to know you as quickly as possible is just part of the magic. I am also a huge fan of books, poetry, music and have a degree in History. I’ve been told that helping my couples feel loved, heard and turning their stories into special celebrations is one of my superpowers.

Chanelle Carlin Weddings is the business I started way back in 2018 to help couples celebrate their love and heal my own heart.

Our wedding ceremony was made so much more memorable with Chanelle as our officiant. She was both personable and professional and catered to our every need. We knew we were in good hands the moment we had our first conversation. Chanelle went above and beyond to ensure that we were all set for our big day, and was there to guide us every step of the way. We cannot recommend her enough!!! – Johnny and Shawna

Chanelle is your Wedding Officiant AND your Celebrant for LifeTM

You don’t just get her to officiate your wedding either. As one of her couples, Chanelle is also your Celebrant for LifeTM . It’s ok if you’ve never heard that term before (and you probably haven’t because Chanelle created it for herself).

As your Celebrant for Life, Chanelle helps you celebrate all the other important Moments that Matter to you in your life whether that’s anniversaries, children, graduations, life successes, retirements, and/or funerals/celebrations of life. 

The key is that you never have to look for someone else to help you celebrate those moments if you don’t want to.

Chanelle did an amazing job for our wedding! She made our ceremony unique to our liking. She was very kind and kept track of our one month anniversary and our one year anniversary, Sending us letters and congratulations. Thank you Chanelle! – Jonathan and Christine

We are so grateful for the personalization and energy Chanelle put forth to ensure our ceremony reflected everything we wanted -while also providing her professional and expert advice on structure and time management.
