Rev. Shannan Sorensen

Specializing in Extraordinary Ceremonies in Unique Locations

Congratulations!  Now that it's time to plan your special day, choose a ceremony reflecting your unique needs and wishes.


From a simple civil ceremony to a more traditional service, or even theme weddings complete with costumes, your ceremony should be just what you want.  No-frills and to-the-point or a specially-created ceremony that's an expression of your values for all to see, your ceremony can reflect who you really are.


I am experienced in civil and Christian ceremonies and have been a part of services held in private residences, small chapels, in the Cascade mountains, on the beach, flying in hot air balloons, even on a jet sled anchored in the Cowlitz river.
