Marriage Officiant

I am licensed in Washington State to marry people.


I strongly believe in the conscious, sacred marriage of 2 committed people.


Combining my ritual background with clear perception, together we will co-design a wedding ceremony that artfully and strongly weaves your dreams and visions into reality.


“I am blessed to have enjoyed the intuition, support, and focus that Laya provided me and my husband as our marriage officiant. During the months prior to the wedding, she helped us envision our desires for the ceremony, incorporating our unique gifts and experiences into this vision.  As a writer, I was particularly pleased that she supported me in drafting a poem based on an intuitive dream I’d had about the marriage.  And during the ceremony itself, she seamlessly incorporated my husband’s idea to plant a tree as an alternative to an exchange of rings.  I appreciated that Laya led a ceremony in line with my own earth-based spirituality and that she honored all generations present in both person and spirit.  She called on our ancestors to witness and support us in marriage while also recognizing our children by ceremonially presenting my husband’s daughter with a special quilt and incorporating the natural unruliness of our toddler into the event.  I thank Laya for having laid the foundation for this truly life-changing experience and for assembling our community of friends and family as witnesses to our marriage.  For months after the wedding, many guests expressed to me the beauty and wonder they had experienced during the ceremony.  We couldn’t have done it without the Laya’s magic touch.” Autumn Linn.
