We called Vickie after our minister person quit on us 5 days before our wedding. Our venue’s coordinator suggested her and we are SOOO happy she did. Vickie was so understanding and she told us not to worry that she would make a great ceremony and SHE DID! It was a perfect ceremony! So if you need someone then call Vickie Michels she is outstanding and thoughtful. She even sent us an email afterwards congratulating us and explaining how to get the certificate to change my name. That is service that goes above and beyond in my opinion.
First let me say my wedding was beautiful. Next Vickie is a warm amazing person. I can’t thank her enough, she understands people and is patient with them. I was a very nervous bride so Vicki had a lot on her plate dealing with me. She says you can contact her anytime, she means it. We had more than 8 skype calls in two months, not little calls but hour to two hour calls. She made my nervousness go away by the time of my wedding and she came with a little bunch of lavender from her garden, she said it was a flower that relaxes people and did worked. My mother took the lavender and made a little bouquet to pin on my dress. I was totally chill during the ceremony and reception, it was wild. I’m married! I’m really freaking married! Thanx Vickie you are the best!
We hired Vickie for our 10th vow renewal. Originally we had eloped, so we invited the whole family this time (70 people). The ceremony was wonderful, romantic and personal feeling. We give her 5 Stars it was perfect.
I am so extraordinarily happy with Rev. Vickie!!!!!! She created a ceremony my hubby and I LOVE! It was beautiful and she made it feel like we were the having a huge ceremony, but there were only 18 guests in attendance. I completely recommend her, she is totally awesome! I can’t wait to renew our vows in a few years. We are going to be calling you Vickie so stay by the phone!!! Love ya!!
Vickie did an amazing job at our wedding. She was loud and professional. She took the time to talk to my new wife who was a little nervous and helped calm her nerves before the ceremony. Even though we were running late, Vickie didn’t sweat it. She was real cool and calm. It takes a special kind of person to care about other people and take the time to really listen. Thank you is all I can say, you did amazing.
Vickie is kind, caring, funny and everything you would want in an officiant. We are so happy we called her to perform our elopement. We live in Montana and we wanted a beach ceremony. She explained what we needed to do for a marriage license and suggested some locations for getting married. She also suggested an terrific restaurant in Newport for our first dinner as Newlyweds.
Rev. Michels did exactly as we asked. My impression is that she will cater to whatever your needs are from a very formal wedding to what we had a very small casual wedding. She was on time and very accommodating. I would recommend her to anyone.
Reverend Vickie was very easy to work with. I found her online, so we communicated by email almost entirely. She communicated clearly and punctually, providing us with lots of choices for our wedding ceremony content. She was flexible in locations, providing us a ceremony that was just right for us - an elopement ON THE BEACH on the Oregon coast. She made it very easy for our special day to be just what we wanted it to be.
Thanks so much for the wedding ceremony. It was perfect. You easily deciphered what we we were looking for and performed it perfectly.
Vickie was fantastic! She brought a light and bubbly energy to our wedding ceremony and wrote such beautiful passages! She also provided us with some creative ideas for unity rituals that we included in our ceremony that made it unique and memorable. She is fun and sweet and we enjoyed having her be a part of our special day. Highly recommended!
Vickie was one of many officiants we contacted upon deciding to elope in Oregon. We are from Indianapolis, and Vickie was the first one to respond and was so warm and welcoming. She got us even more excited about our big adventure, and every detail she was professional and prompt in her response. Everything could not have gone any better. Thanks Vickie!
Vickie was our officiant for our elopement. We live a state away so we were nervous that things would not work out the way we envisioned it but Vickie did an amazing job ensuring that it went off without a hitch. She was timely with her correspondence answering any questions we had and even video chatted with us to get a feel of our interests to personalize our vows to our beliefs. She even went above and beyond by bringing witnesses for us since our family couldn't make the trip. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone.
Vickie was a huge help, and very patient and understanding throughout
our wedding planning. She was kind, helpful, and put us at ease. The ceremony
itself was beautiful, personal and her delivery was outstanding.
I would absolutely recommend her to others!
Thank you Vickie for all your help!
Vickie was an absolute delight to work with from first contact through our ceremony. She was so accommodating and flexible. We didn't ask for a lot of changes, but she understood and didn't bat an eye at the ones we did ask for, which was different from other officiants we had reached out to before finding her. We were able to make our ceremony exactly what we wanted it to be: low key and personal to us. That's how it should be when you are committing to another. Thank you for making our day about us and guiding us through the legalities as painlessly as possible!
Vickie Michels was fantastic! She had no problem communicating with us about our ceremony and allowing us to customize what we wanted. We asked quite a few questions, to which she replied in a timely manner with her answers. On top of this, she arrived a handful of minutes early and hung with us while we waited for our tardy matron of honor. And on such a warm day, she had the foresight to bring a hand held fan that the bride could use to stay cool. On top of all this, she was wonderfully sweet and good humored. Choose this woman, she is absolutely wonderful, and incredibly adaptable!
That was the most amazing ceremony. You have great praise from us both.
Rev. Vickie preformed our wedding ceremony on 9-7-13. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant! From the first meeting to the last, she gave us great suggestions and helped us through every step of the ceremony process to help us create a service that was unique and truly ours. I would recommend rev. Vickie Michels to anyone planning their wedding. She was a delight to work with.

Vickie was amazing and an integral part of my son's wedding on the beach in Lincoln City. Communication was outstanding, she answered all of their questions in a timely manner. When she arrived at the site, she was calm and professional, putting the groom at ease as he frantically ran around taking care of last second issues. Vickie stepped in and immediately felt like part of the extended family. I would highly recommend her for whatever ceremony you have. "Vickie, thank you for helping make the kids' special day absolutely perfect."
was Great even with the temps. In the upper 90's she still was very pleasant.
She did her job and made the day so special for Both of Us,, Even knowing she
had to be at another wedding she still took time out to do pictures with Us.
Anyone needing a wedding she is great I will telling everyone We know to go see
Vickie,, Again thank You Vickie for making Our Day go so smooth,,,

Vickie is awesome! She is wonderfully sweet but can be tough and reign in some unruly wedding party members if needed. She worked through a microphone failing and no one noticed. She was on time and worked without ever changing schedule. I am so happy she was the person to marry us!
We did not have anyone to marry is so we went online and found Rev Michels. We met with her and we discussed what we wanted and she sent us a sample wedding. At the time of the wedding she was on time and with her help everything went very well. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding. We would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Rev. Vicki Michels.
We were very happy to have Reverend Michels's perform our civil
ceremony. She was very nice and friendly, open to ideas and suggestions. The
ceremony was exactly how we wanted it to be. She spoke slowly and with a strong
voice so all of our guests could hear.
She was very punctual and responded rapidly to our emails and request. In summary, she was very professional. I would definitively recommend her! _
I would highly recommend Reverend Vickie. She is flexible and easy to talk to. She was on time unlike the start of my wedding, which was my fault not hers. We meet with her to go over plans since we did not really need a rehearsal, and had a nice conversation. She responded promptly to emails and was a pleasure to have perform our ceremony. Sincerely, Victoria Hanson
Reverend Vickie made our special day perfect! With both my husband and I so nervous, she was able to gently lead us through our ceremony with a calming and magical experience. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant!! She was willing to meet with us as often as we needed and keeps great correspondence. We can't thank her enough for making our wedding day perfect!!
Instead of getting married in the courthouse, we decided to go to the Oregon coast for a short ceremony. We are so happy that we found Vickie Michels to conduct the event. She provided choices of the style and content of the ceremony and she drove to our location to conduct the service. She is professional in every way and we highly recommend her services. She made our special day even more special. Thanks, Rev. Michels!
Vickie did a wonderful job as our officiant from Day 1. I was very stressed trying to arrange an elopement remotely and Vickie was a huge help. She was prompt in returning all my emails and telephone calls while at the same time remaining flexible with the finer details of the elopement. The ceremony itself was beautiful and very apropos to the moment. Thanks Vickie- you are the BEST!
She made us feel comfortable from our first meeting. She was easy to talk to and she walked us through the whole process and always made sure we were prepared. We were both very comfortable during this whole process thanks to Reverend Michel's relaxed and cheerful attitude, she made the whole thing easy.
Vickie was fantastic! She always responded to my questions in a very timely manner and was professional. She was so much fun to be around and I loved the words she spoke at our elopement--it was perfect! She knew exactly what we wanted and was so friendly and peaceful. I couldn't have asked for a better officiant!
Reverend Michels, made us very comfortable.She was easy-going and open-minded. She understood what we wanted for our non-traditional ceremony. She responded to emails and questions within just a few hours.
My husband and I got married at Rockaway Beach, Oregon. We planned our wedding from abroad. Vickie made our experience very easy, she was very professional, punctual and the options of ceremonies fit our needs. Highly recommend her services.
