    Thorough and Professional

    Right from the beginning of planning our ceremony, it was obvious that the most important thing to Mary was providing us with exactly what we wanted. She sent us so many options to choose from in terms of ceremony flow, readings, and special additions. We ended up crafting a ceremony that felt so special and personalized to us, and Mary was flexible, responsive and encouraging throughout the whole experience. Not only did we feel like we got to personalize the ceremony, Mary made the effort to get to know us as a couple, so that her portion of the ceremony felt personal as well. She is incredibly responsive to emails, offers helpful advice, and was so organized and professional from the beginning of planning right to the big day. All of our guests praised what a wonderful job she did, and with the ceremony being truly the most important part of our wedding, I am so grateful we chose Mary to officiate!

    SO HAPPY with the ceremony we have created!

    Mary has been so helpful and responsive throughout this whole wedding planning process! I didn't realize how much went into planning the ceremony and just how customizable it can be. Mary helped guide me through all our options (SO many options!) and we have created a custom ceremony that is very uniquely us! Mary asked me some questions about our lives and our relationship and I talked to her about how we've been together for 10 years and we have two dogs together and that our dogs mean the world to us and Mary weaved that through our ceremony, it made it so much more personal and we are just so excited for our wedding day!

    Mary has helped us through the marriage license and legal aspects, she's been very timely through all our email communications, and she has been so patient through all the changes and additions we've made. I would 100% recommend Mary! Thank you so much for all your help throughout our planning!

    Hi Romy and Chris
    It was a pleasure to be your Alberta Marriage Commissioner. What a lovely couple and those two wee dogs looked so cut. Of course you and your attendants looked fantastic. I appreciated meeting your family and serving you as your officiant. Thank you.

    Mary was amazing and we were so grateful that Mary was our marriage officiant. Prompt with all questions and so very helpful throughout the preparation. Mary brought so much warmth and love to the ceremony, we really couldn't have asked for a better ceremony.

Absolutely loved incorporating your language into the ceremony and seeing such beautiful traditional dresses worn by family members.

Meet the Team

Mary  Zakordonski
Mary Zakordonski
Officiant - Commissioner

Hi, Welcome to my Wedding Wire site and thanks for visiting.

I am Mary Zakordonski and I’m a team of one. But don’t let that foul you!

I network and organize our marriage commissioner annual luncheons and get-togethers for St. Albert, Edmonton and surrounding cities. So this team of one, has a real back-up team.

Here’s a little bit about me. Since 2015, I’ve officiated well over 500 weddings any day of the week.

Do you want your ceremony short and sweet, traditional, casual or themed?

I love incorporating different cultural traditions and languages into ceremonies to meet my client’s needs. You may have seen me officiate in a formal black gown or perhaps a themed costume. Adaptability and experience are keys to serving you.

Spare time: biking, hiking, kayaking or baking. Being with friends and family.

Recent courses: Indigenous Studies at U of A, Ukrainian and Metis 101.

I am grateful for life. Grateful for the warm sun and grateful for loving people. Love is definitely not cancelled.
