Rev. Patti Ruhala
I've had the privilege of marrying couples since 2004 and it is the most rewarding and fun job I have ever had.
Hearing your love story from when you first met, fell in love, to the proposal and planning your future together, is one of my most favorite parts of getting to know you as we work towards creating your ceremony.
I like to refer to myself as your "wedding coach". I'm very detail-oriented, down to earth and genuinely care about my couples having a great experience and am here to guide you from the rehearsal to the wedding. I have created traditional weddings, Star Wars themed, 30-year medieval vow renewal, mixed religions, Scottish with various family tartans, a wedding with an antique cannon as the cheer, hockey and Halloween themes, and much more. Imagination can be a vital part when creating some wedding ceremonies.
Some officiants require classes, I do not. My license allows me to perform weddings, baptisms, and funerals within the United States.
I have been married for over 38 years and have two children living in Washington and Las Vegas, five grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. It would be my pleasure to be there for your special day!
