WEDDINGS & ELOPEMENTS
Performed by Seattle Wedding Officiant Frank Harlan
Do You Believe In Love? I Do.
What can I tell you about me? Well, I love my wife, love our dogs and the life we have built together over the past 16 years. Prior to my career as a Wedding Officiant, I spent 30-years performing as a comedic entertainer and Master of Ceremony for special events. These days, as a word smith, I spend my time creating ad copy, developing online content, and scripting very personal wedding ceremonies for couples who have decided we are a good match for the wedding day celebration.
"As a Humanist Officiant, I know that I can't be everything to everybody -- and I don't want to. That's why I choose work with couples who prefer a Non-religious Wedding Ceremony."
Since 2009, I have produced and presided over hundreds of wedding at dozens of popular Washington destination venues, parks , beaches and backyards. My professional experiences allows me to be creative resource and knowledgeable adviser to any brides and/or grooms in planning their wedding day celebration.
"Couples booking me are usually a mix of Creatives, Theatre People, Self-proclaimed Geeks, Sci Fi Fanatics, Biologist and Nones."
Personally, I love a wedding ceremony that is packed full of warm sighs, joyful tears, and laughter; an emotional roller coaster ride for the guests and an unforgettable experience for the Newlyweds.
"Remember, the Wedding Officiant you choose will have a lead role in one of the most significant days of your life as a couple."
Prior to my career as a Wedding Officiant, I spent 30-years performing as a Comedic Performance Artist, Master of Ceremony and Event Producer working in the Special Event and Hospitality Industries. This experience allows me to be a knowledgeable adviser and resource to any brides and grooms planning their wedding day celebration.

Q: What Venues in and around Seattle have you performed small weddings?
A: As a full-time Wedding Officiant I have produced and presided over hundreds of wedding ceremonies for gatherings large and small, from four to hundreds of guests. Martha Stewart says, "A small wedding is 50 or less guests." I think that's a good place to start. Since my website is about producing Smaller Wedding Productions, here are some of the locations I have performed weddings for couples since 2009.
"A majority of Smaller Weddings have less then two dozen guests."
Of course, many were at popular Seattle destinations, others took place at a variety of intimate settings and public locations that have included the Sky Bridge at the Pike Place Market, Seattle Arboretum, While riding The Great Wheel, Volunteer Park Conservatory, Center for Wooden Boats, Rattlesnake Ledge, Sole Repair Shop, Tower Club, Ballard Locks, Little Mt Si Trail, Edgewater Hotel, Discovery Park, The Parson’s Rose Garden, FranMo Urban Farm, The Corson Building, The Ruins, Gas Works Park, Woodland Park Zoo's Rose Garden, Doe Bay Retreat on Orcas Island, West Seattle’s Water Taxi Dock, Carillon Point, Mt.
