I am an upbeat, outgoing, full-time wedding officiant who would love to perform your wedding! Although this is a happy event in your life, it can be a stressful one as well. It's important to me that your ceremony is a reflection of the love that is shared between one another. Whether your are a couple who doesn't belong to a particular church or a couple who is looking for either a non-religious wedding or a spiritual celebration, I'll see to it that I deliver a customized ceremony that fits what you are looking for and does just this! With five years of experience, I have served couples of many different beliefs. As a wedding officiant & ordained minister, it's important to me that I uphold the wishes of each couple I serve.
Through the feedback of my couples, as well as their family and friends, I have been humbled with their words of gratitude and appreciation for the outstanding job and care I provided for their loved ones. I often hear about how my enthusiasm, love, and caring personality made the preparation of the wedding ceremony so much easier and enjoyable. Here are just a few examples of what other couples have said about me and my services:

Thank you so much for the beautiful wedding ceremony you performed for my husband and I last month.  We were really stressed and concerned trying to find an officiant last minute due to a family emergency; but you stepped in and took care of everything.  The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and you made us both feel so at ease with you.  I honestly can't imagine things going any more smoothly!!  The ceremony you performed was so beautiful and personal for us...not at all cookie cutter like some people I had talked too.  Even though we never met prior, you seemed to know us so well and that came through with your words.  We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated everything you did for us.  You made our special day even more amazing!!  If you ever need a reference, we're more than happy to provide one for you.
Thank you so much,
Brian and Jennifer Sparks (received 12-15-10)

Dear Tiffani-

Ryan and I are so impressed with the wonderful ceremony you conducted for our wedding. You completely captured our personality as a couple and constructed a perfect ceremony which suited us. After our wedding we had several guests approach us, and ask who our wonderful officiant was, and we have highly recommended you to all who ask. When planning our wedding we decided that a key element of a wedding was the officiant, and without a doubt you exceeded our expectations. We truly cannot thank you enough for your special service, it is something Ryan and I will cherish as an integral part of our special day.     -Alyssa Ringhouse (received 10-1-10)


Hi Tiffani,

I hope you are well! We really can't thank you enough.  I think both of us would say that our ceremony was our favorite part of our wedding (despite random music coming from a nearby field and Nathan fainting!).  It was exactly what we wanted, and we couldn't have got there without you.  It meant so much to have an officiant who truly got to know us.   - Jackie (received 9-20-10)


It was a pleasure to meet you yesterday at Jackie and Dave's wedding.  Everything went so well.  You are such a pleasant person to speak with.  Knowing what I do about Jackie and Dave, I totally understand why they had you officiate the ceremony.  
Warmest Regards,  Brett Szemple (photographer, Wilson wedding, received 8-22-10)


Excerpt from an email sent 7-13-10 to the Tulalip Resort by mother of the bride, Gigi Marcel-Jacobson:
"I understand that you are considering putting Tiffani Mondares-Riggs on your Vendor List (she was our officiant).  I sincerely hope you do so...she was fantastic!  She was an absolute riot at the rehearsal...so much fun.  And I thought she created a beautiful ceremony for Stacey and Mitch.  Everyone was super-impressed with her...my sister-in-law wants to get married again just to have her officiate :)"

It was great working with you yesterday at Mike and Summer's Wedding, they are a very sweet couple. You do an awesome job for the couples you officiate for!   Julie Shoup (photographer, Julie Celeste Photography 1-3-10)

Dear Tiffani,
Thank you for officiating at my daughter Tina & new son-in-law Leonard this past Saturday.  The words and story you used in the cermony added to the love & happiness we all saw & felt.  It was a perfect ending to the beautiful surroundings, Bridial party and of course the Bride & Groom and the beginning to their new life. GOD surely blessed us by giving Tina & Leonard a beautiful sunny day to have for their wedding day. Thank you again for making their vows special and I'm sure they will keep those words, that story in their hearts for many years to come.  You did serve this loving, happy couple with more than "I DO".   Sincerely, Norma Moreno


Len and I want to thank you so much for the amazing job you did at our wedding. The vows were beautiful not only to us but was touching to everyone there. Surrounded by our family and friends, becoming united, finally!, was a moment Len and I will treasure forever. We love the web site and your comments of us. You will be our forever friend-we love you so much! A million thanks, Tippy and Len



I so much enjoyed meeting you and working with you! I loved how you personalized Tina and Leonard Patricelli’s wedding ceremony above and beyond what I have seen done before.  Your warm and loving persona exemplified more than just a professionalism but a love for your work.  That is definitely a nice change from other officiants I have experienced.  You have a smile that is welcoming and honest. Thank you again for a beautiful ceremony!

Sincerely, Shannon Hannold (owner, Flawless Events Planning, 9-20-09)

Dear Tiffani,

I hope this email finds you and your family well.  Even though it is belated, I want to thank you for a beautiful ceremony last August at Salty's on Alki.  I recently had lunch there for the first time since our wedding and I was reminded of how wonderful the whole day was, and how well the ceremony fit with the celebration. Thanks again, Alexis & Chris of West Seattle


Tiffani, I could never thank you enough for such a wonderful ceremony! Your speech (ceremony) was beautiful and there wasn't a dry eye in the whole room! You blended with our families so naturally and received the upmost compliments. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Love, Mr. & Mrs. Brenden of Lynnwood, WA

I wanted to express how much I appreciate your energy and assistance on my wedding day.  James and I were (are) very happy at how the day turned out and I really think a lot of that was due to your demeanor mixed with professionalism.  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Tiffani, We couldn't have gotten any luckier with an officiant and wonderful person such as yourself presiding over our wedding. You're amazing at what you do! With love, Aly & Marc of Everett, WA

Hi Tiffani -- I am so happy with the way everything turned out on Saturday. I just wanted to thank you for being a part of it and doing such a wonderful job with the ceremony. It really meant a lot to us to have you spend your time and energy writing the ceremony specifically for us. We wouldn't have wanted it any other way, and we couldn't have asked for anything more. If you need any references or anything at all, I would be happy to do it. Just let me know. Thank you again, Tiya of Seattle, WA
Tiffani, Thank You so much for all your help with the wedding! We really enjoyed working with you and would highly recommend your services to anyone!!!  Constance & Josh of Longview, WA
Tiffani, I want to thank you again for such a great ceremony! It was absolutely beautiful and we got nothing but compliments about you! You really made our day more special and I really appreciate it and I will definitely keep in touch! I will hopefully talk to you soon! Thank you again! Sincerely, Mr. and Mrs. Gower of Gig Harbor, WA
Tiffani, thank you so much for being our officiant. We are so blessed to have met you and could not have asked for a more perfect ceremony. We are so grateful that we were able to have you as part of our day and at the beginning of our married life together. Wendy & Jeff of Issaquah, WA
Tiffani, It was great to have you marry my son! Thanks for being such a wonderful person! Until next time, Janie of Tulalip, WA
Tiffani, Tony and I just wanted to thank you for sharing such an amazing part of our wedding. You were perfect--by the words of everyone in attendance. Everyone still brings you up as being just the perfect addition to the day. They said you fit so well with who Tony and I are and we couldn’t agree more! We’ve gone back and re-read the ceremony a few times and it just brings a smile to our faces. We also would like to give you a testimonial to use however you wish:

Tony and I, as I am sure you realized when you first read our vows to each other, are quite particular about the idea of love, marriage, and commitment. When we first met with you we were a bit apprehensive… how could anyone exemplify what we feel enough to share this day with us? Well, two hours later and we knew we had met the perfect match with you. You accepted our idea that love and marriage wasn’t religious but simply spiritual in a natural way and that love is above all other things. When we read your rough draft before the wedding, we knew we had done well to have you. Your words were beautiful, your delivery was beautiful, and your smile lit up the day as much as everything else around us. Everyone in attendance could not say enough to how well you had done! You are a gem and a wonderful person. I am already planning what to do for our one-year anniversary and how we can get you to come back to our home once more! Hope to keep in touch and hear how things are doing--you are a special person. Thank you for helping make our day perfect. -Grace L of Bellevue, WA

Hi Tiffani - I have ambitious plans to send nice proper thank you notes to everyone, but in advance of that I just wanted to touch base and say thank you so much for everything you did to turn my "event" into, well, a wedding! You were truly a gift and I am so glad we connected - you made our day very special, and I want you to know that we now have a lovely decoration of roses in our front room every week - Gerry's idea!
Thanks again, Julie D. of Canada

Hi Tiffani,
Everything went just great. Thank you so much. Regards, Ashish & Sireesha of Bothell, WA
Dear Tiffani,
Scott and I are celebrating our 20th week of wedded bliss today. We are both so grateful to you. I would be honored to serve as a reference to you. You did such a beautiful job with our wedding. It was wonderful to hear from you and if there is anything that we can do for you, please just let me know. Sincerely, Kristi M of Tacoma, WA
Hello, Tiffani,
We would like to thank you again for such a beautiful ceremony. It couldn't have gone so well without you. We also appreciate your extra attention to detail. You thought of things that I wouldn't have and made it that much better. We had many people comment on what a wonderful ceremony and it was all thanks to you. Sincerely, Melanie & Matt of Gig Harbor, WA
David & I would like to thank you so much for the wonderful ceremony. It was exactly what we wanted. It was moving and expressed everything about us and our trials together and the faith and strength that we both find and count on in each other. The vows that you prepared for us were wonderful and touching. Many of my coworkers said they were unique and sincere. One of my coworkers asked if she could take a copy of mine to incorporate into her upcoming wedding, but I had to say no because I would be attending the wedding and hearing my vows being said by someone other than you, David or I would forever change them in my mind. I had to draw the line somewhere!  We just wanted to let you know that it was wonderful and it was as if you had known us our whole life. If you would like to refer other couples to us feel free to email me or refer to this email. You were wonderful and made our day perfect. Thank you again for your professionalism and warm and friendly personality. Lots of thanks, Mr. and Mrs. Torres of CA
Hi, Tiffani
We are doing great and looking forward to the holidays. I would be happy to be a reference for you. I had a wonderful time working with you and you are more than welcome to give both my number and my email if you want to. I hope that everything is going well for you also. Thank you again for everything you did for us and our ceremony was just perfect. You did a wonderful job. Thank you, Crystal M. of Spanaway, WA
Corey and I both were thrilled to work with you and we had many positive comments at the ceremony from friends and family about your work. If you ever need a testimonial to build business, let me know and I will help! You are very very kind to say such nice things about us. We feel the same about you! :)  Best, Faith
Thank you so much for officiating at our wedding -- your kind words helped make our day very memorable. We're glad you could play such a special part in making our dream come true. Thank - you for all that you have done for us. You made our day truly special. Sincerely, Ashley & Tony H. of Edmonds, WA
