About Chanelle

 

 

"Chanelle was absolutely fabulous ! she went above and beyond our expectations,

highly recommend !" - Darryl and Kaitlyn Wood

 

 

                                                                       I am a lover of life and love. I have traveled the world, lived in Ireland for 8 years and now live in rural

                                                                       Okanogan County, Washington, USA with my family. Some of my favorite things are Christmas, orange

                                                                       kitties, dachshunds, traveling, hiking, watching old musicals, spending time with my family and enjoying

                                                                       a cup of coffee in the morning while the sun rises or a glass of wine in the evening watching the sun set.

                                                                       My favorite season is fall because I love the cooler, crisper air, the cool lighting in the sky and the leaves

                                                                       changing colors on the trees.

 

                                                                        I also LOVE helping couples celebrate their love in their own, unique style and believe that life and love

                                                                        should be celebrated every minute!

 

                                                                        I'm often asked how I came to officiate weddings. It's a simple story, really, but not necessarily one

                                                                        most folks expect:

 

                                                                        When my mom passed away a few years ago, we struggled to find an officiant for her funeral service, even

                                                                        though, we know a number of ordained ministers. The funeral home gave us a name and that gentleman

                                                                        worked with us to celebrate my mom's life a few days later. Afterwards, I was committed to making sure that no

                                                                        one else would have such a hard time finding someone to celebrate a loved one and I became an ordained                                                                                minister...just in case.


                                                                        Once ordained, weddings literally started coming to me. Initially they were couples struggling to find                                                                                            an officiant. One couple told me their first officiant passed away and the second one sort of  disappeared on

                                                                        them! They found me six weeks before their wedding. Another couple desperate for an officiant found me from

                                                                        across the state two days before their ceremony!

 

Over the past few years, I have officiated dozens of weddings, each one beautiful, each one special and each just as the couple desired it to be. I can honestly say I have never been happier in my work or felt more fulfilled. I have the honor of celebrating couples who are celebrating their love and commitment to one another.

 

 

"Chanelle was so fun to work with! She is sooo charismatic and very professional. She took the time to get to know our personalities as individuals and as a couple. That allowed her to create a very personalized and unique ceremony for us." - Jessica and Jon
