Welcome to
happily ever after... 

Outdoor Wedding Altar

Rev. Chenin West 
Your Central Oregon Wedding Officiant 

As a wedding officiant, the best part of my job is getting to know my couples. Each has a completely different life-love story and distinguishing beliefs.
Love, is their commonality. 

I write ceremonies to make a memorable impact on the couple and their guests. The passages of your ceremony aren’t details I invent. They are precious moments brought to life by you, and for you. I receive a tremendous amount of joy from playing a small role in your love story and this is why I’ve been tying knots for over twenty-five years. 


As a non-denominational ordained minister, I offer couples romantic wedding ceremonies, elopements, vow renewal or simple signings throughout Central Oregon. I will be available throughout the planning process to guide you, answer your questions and ease your concerns.

The romantic frame work of your ceremony is limited only to your imagination. This can be a sweet and simple reflection of your love story or an epic adventure ceremony.


All rates reflect my heart felt time invested in your custom ceremony. Not limited to consulting, secret conversations with your fiance, to sneak in surprises. Researching wedding rituals you might like included, writing, choreographing, travel time, officiating and filing your marriage license. 


I am looking forward to making your day magical.

"You have found your officiant!" 

Chenin West is a skilled professional. Her consult was efficient and detailed. Our rehearsal started on time and the Rev. gently directed our large wedding party as needed, addressing so many details that

I would have never thought of. She was so friendly, understanding and supportive. During our wedding, it felt like every word was written specifically for us. You have found your officiant! We happily recommend Rev. Chenin West for your ceremony!
